Need a Name

I'm working on a platformer game where you play as this person with a robot on her arm. You are fighting monsters to save a country named Fernia. You are fighting the monsters with many interesting weapons like a laser blaster, a shotgun, landmines, grenades, a bazooka, and a magic wand. I am almost done with the game but there's one problem: I can't think of a name! If you have any ideas please comment them. Thanks!

What I Learned at Frontier Airlines.

I learned many things at Frontier. Here they are.

1.Frontier's hub is in Denver where it snows a lot.
2.Frontier does not offer refunds.
3.Frontier's free television is six dollars.
4.The restrooms in Denver double as tornado shelter.
5.Frontier will allow you to sleep on rock hard styrofoam in their airport at night instead of buying you a motel room.
6.The customer support at Frontier is really "nice". The guy told my mom to watch her attitude because she was crying.
7.The food at airports is triple the price and a third of the quality.
8.You get frisked if you wear a jacket. Getting frisked is really uncomfortable.
9.Frontier will only give a very small drink. No pretzels or peanuts.
10.Here's the most important one. NEVER FLY FRONTIER AIRLINES!!!

We drove to OCHSA and parked. Then I waited fifteen minutes. After the wait I got on the elevator. We stopped on the fifth floor. There was a long line to the room. I waited in the line. I gave these guys my portfolio and told them my name. They said "Hi Dylan. Go in this room." I went in the room and waited. Eventually this girl came in and told us we would be drawing (not tracing) our own hands. This was easy except that they had a broken fan that would turn on and off randomly. It had these flaps on it and they kept on going up and down. They made a loud slam each time because they were made of metal. Also almost every body's cell phone started ringing. Eventually the girl came back in and said to turn the pictures in. I turned my picture in. Then the girl said to draw a seashell. I drew a seashell and almost finished the detail but the time ran out and I turned it in. Then the girl said we had to draw three objects from the table. There wasn't anything interesting so I took three fake fruits. I finished them and then the girl told me to hand the final picture to Mr.Ow. No, really, the guys name was Mr.Ow. So I handed the pictures to Mr.Ow and got my portfolio. I went down stairs and got picked up by my mom. We drove home and I told my dad what happened. Then we went to In-N-Out to eat. That is what happened on the third of March 2010.

Trash Heap was made by a poor and lonely man who owned a junkyard and wanted a friend. So he made a robot out of a television set, a model car, some cans, an oxygen tank, a cable dish, a toaster, a bowling ball, and much more junk.

This took me a week. I'm going to add color to it.

Serious Gingerbread Man

Once upon a time there was an old couple. They were lonely. They decided to end this loneliness by adopting a boy. The End.

Let's say they didn't adopt a boy.

The couple decided to make a boy. With the oven. The made him out of gingerbread and carefully placed him in the oven. Then, after he was cooked all the way they took him out. They talked to him and played with him, but he never played back. Eventually they got bored with him and ate him. The End.

Let's say he was alive somehow.

Then they carefully placed him in the oven. Then, the Gingerbread Man got up. "Hey! I'm alive! Yeah! Hooray! Hoo...why is it so hot in here? I feel like I'm being...cooked!!! Help! Help! Let me out! Help!!! Aaaaaaaaagh! Help!" said the Gingerbread Man. "Do you hear something Thelma?" said the old man. "Oh, of course not, George. You and I both know we can't hear anymore." said the old lady. The End.

Let's say he survived the heat.

Then the Gingerbread Man got up. "Hey! I'm alive! Hooray! Hooray! Hooray!" Then they took the Gingerbread Man out of the oven. "Hi there!" said the Gingerbread Man. The old couple screamed. "Don't worry. I won't hurt..." Splat! The old lady lifted up her broom. "I think it's dead George." said the old lady. "I certainly hope so." said the old man. The End

Let's say they were not afraid of a talking cookie.

Then they took out the Gingerbread Man. "Hi there!" he said. "Oh, how cute. Now we won't be lonely anymore." said the old lady. They talked to him and played with him and lived happily ever after. The End.

Let's say he ran away with an annoying chant for some reason.

Then they took the Gingerbread Man out of the oven. "So long!" said the Gingerbread Man. "Run, run as fast as you can, you can't catch me I'm the Gingerbread Man." It turns out they could. The End.

Let's say he was fast.

Then the Gingerbread Man ran away sayng "Run, run as fast as you can, you can't catch me I'm the Gingerbread Man." then he ran by some kids. "Run, run as fast as you can, you can't catch me I'm the Gingerbread Man." They caught and ate him. The End

Let's say he was really fast.

Then he zoomed by the kids and he ran by a dog. "Run, run as fast as you can, you can't catch me I'm the Gingerbread Man." The dog chased the Gingerbread Man and bit him in half. Then he ate the rest of the Gingerbread Man. The End.

Let's say he was really, really fast.

Then he got past the dog. But he got to a bridgeless river. He tried to swim. He sank to the bottom of the river were he was devoured by fishes.. The End.

Let's say he saw a fox.

Then before he decided to try swimming he saw a fox. The fox said "I'll get you across Gingerbread Man." "Okay!" said the Gingerbread Man. So he hopped on the fox and the fox took him to the middle of the river were he ate him. The End.

Let's say... wait a minute he's supposed to die. Never mind.

This shows that this story could probably happen (well, the Gingerbread Man getting eaten at least.) The moral of the story is to never trust a fox. They're always evil. Trust me.

Serious Jack and the Beanstalk

Once upon a time there lived a poor boy named Jack who sold his cow for "magic" beans. He planted them and only regular beans came up. It was an obvious scam that Jack was suckered in to. The End.

Let's say they were somehow magic.

Then a huge beanstalk came up and Jack decided to climb it. It went all the way up to the clouds. He jumped onto the clouds and fell threw them. He had a 500 mile drop and died. His neighbors found what was left of him in a crater.The End.

Let's say somehow the clouds were solid.

Then Jack hopped onto the clouds and walked to a castle. He couldn't open the doors because they were so huge and the handle was 75 feet high, so he gave up and went back to his house. The End.

Let's say he managed to open the doors.

Then he opened the castle doors and walked in the castle (trespassing.) Turns out the castle is filled with gold and there is a goose and a harp. But all the stuff weighs too much so Jack leaves empty handed. The End.

Let's say all the stuff was light or Jack's size so he could steal it.

Then Jack grabbed as much stuff as possible (stealing.) This made the Giant who owned the castle mad. So the Giant chased Jack. Jack ran until he got to the beanstalk. He started climb down but the Giant ripped the beanstalk out the ground and squished Jack. The End.

Let's say that for some reason the Giant didn't do this.

Then Jack climbed down the beanstalk and started to chop the beanstalk down. Too bad the Giant came down before he did and crushed him. The End.

Let's say he chopped down the beanstalk before the Giant got down.

Then the beanstalk fell and crushed Jack. The End.

Let's say it didn't land on Jack.

Then the beanstalk fell and crushed 247 people and 53 houses. Right before Jack was able to say "Ooops!" the giant fell. This caused an earthquake and the rest of the houses were destroyed. The surviving villagers kill Jack. The End.

Let's say that no people or houses were crushed.

Then the Beanstalk and the giant fell down. The Giant died (murder.) Jack was rich and lived happily ever after. The End.

Now you can see that Jack is a true hero (trespassing, stealing, murder) and that this story maybe could happen (it only ended badly eight times out of nine.)

I decided to try out photography. This is what I have got so far.
