I started off this week with creating the required daily create, which I found amusing because I hope others did. I felt like this week had a lot of activities done on WordPress and Twitter. For generated apocalypse story, I pressed on the suggest button for a random amount for each section and the outcome was very funny and made almost no-sense. The next one that I worked on was the graffiti wall, what I used was GIMP, which I’ve heard of but never used. I tried to add some comical and classic graffiti as well as decreasing the size of the font to create and effect that it was real.
The short stories I chose were awesome and something new I haven’t like before. The first one, “Finis”, which is about scientists who discover a star that going to destroy the earth in mere seconds. My alternative ending sounded similar to the book “City of Ember”. Which is what first came to mind when I finished reading it. My next short story that I read was “There will come soft rains”. Which is about a atomic fall out where nukes are being detonated. What first came to my head to create an alternative ending was the scene from Indiana Jones where he survives a blast from sealing himself in a lead refrigerator.
What I chose to review was a book on edible plants you can find in the forest. What first came to mind was from the movie “Into the Wild”. Where the main character buys that book in order to survive in the wild on his own.
In the event of an apocalypse, do you think you’d be the kind of person to hoard your supplies (for yourself and your loved ones) or would you share them with those around you in need? Why or why not?
I believe I would be a person who shares, which is what I normally do when I play games with my friends that require the whole team to have nice things in order to survive. Because I believe I cannot survive on my own and with a strong team where everyone is an equal we can all survive at an equal chance. Plus, I don’t think I can carry all the things I find, so I would give the extras to who needs it.
