Okay, let's begin by learning about the words "there", "their" and "they're".
- "There" refers to place. Eg. "I live just over there".
- It can also be used in such context as "There is no need to worry."
- "Their" refers to possession. Eg. "Their lawn needs mowing."
- "They're" is a contraction. It is short for "they are". Eg. "They're not heading to school today."
- "You're" is another contraction, meaning "you are". Eg. "You're wasting my time."
- "Your" refers to possession, just as "their" does, except the item belongs to you. Eg. "That's your problem."
- Only use "you're" if you mean "you are". DO NOT use "your" in this case.
- "To" expresses motion regarding a destination. Eg. "We are heading to the shops."
- "Too" means to a higher degree than someone or something can handle. Eg. "This boulder is too heavy for me to move."
- "Two" is the number 2. Eg. "People even get this confused with the other two words sometimes."
- "Lose", pronounced "LOOZ", is the opposite of "find". Eg. "I hope I don't lose my watch."
- In some cases, it is also the opposite of "win". Eg. "Unless we do something we're going to lose the match!"
- "Loose", pronounced "LOOSS", is the opposite of "tight" Eg. "If we don't fix this loose screw, the whole machine may fall apart!"

My fave race in that series was the Shikadi. They have to be the most unique fictional race in the history of ever!
I've actually dona a couple of pictures of them, one by hand nod one using Photoshop.

In this pic, they are on the planet Korath III constructing their gigantic weapon of mass destruction (for lack of a better term), the Omegamatic.
I know Shikadi don't speak English, but I don't know Omnispeak, so I decided to use my imagination instead.
I tried to fix this picture using a random editing software in Windows, but failed miserably. That's why the pic looks so awful.

Now, if you'll excuse me, I have a teddy bear to cuddle with!
I'd like to take this time to request that all members let me know whenever they change their display name, so I can update the list.
"Oh...? Jan? JAN??"
Jan begins to approach the woman's room
"Where's our ad in the Yellow Pages directory?"
Suddenly, Jan, having forgotten to place the ad, walks out of the building. The posh woman could tell, and tries in vein to hide her frustration.
"Keep calm, count to 10: 1, 2, 3... 8, 9, 10..."
She slowly gets up and walks to the window, where she sees Jan running past in the street far below. She opens the window roughly and yells:
"NOT HAPPY JAN!"
During the downtime, the club has gotten bigger. It has another branch (with yet another on the way), and its very own website! Unfortunately, I am not allowed to post a link here.
I'm sure they could go in trillions of directions at LEAST with the story now that everyone's together on one now-whole planet.
I'm sure Toa Helryx, Artakha, the MU Robot, Kojol, Lariska Johmak and the Sisters of the Skrall would make brilliant sets.
But why is no-one giving them a chance?
And to think I was afraid of skeletons over a decade ago...
I do plan to try and find work, but I'm scared. Getting part-time work is harder than people make it out to be, especially when you're in your early 20s and you've never worked for money in your life, like me. Plus, a series of ads featuring part-timers injuring themselves (making the kinds of mistakes I feel I'd make) has made it all but impossible for me to muster up the courage to even try.
Over time the former wild child soon became calm, friendly and open, and the two of us would become as close as brothers. He showed me his natural talent for rap music, and was even able to record a song! However, his past life in a gang war continued to haunt him, and dominate his entire life.
In his town there are two gangs: the east gang and the west gang. These gangs are so deadly that the police are powerless to stop them, and have even become too afraid to try! After my friend helped the east gang with something, the west gang marked him for death.
At this point, my friend had moved in with his girlfriend, but she was a member of the west gang, so she betrayed him for her own protection. She hit him with a crowbar, knocking him out, and then went to juvenile detention for 2 weeks. Her parents spent the entire time away from home trying to free her, leaving my friend home alone with no food. It was during this time that the home was invaded by west gang members, who had come solely to kill my friend. He fought back and was able to hold the gang members off for a while. However, he began to lose faith and consider letting them kill him next time they came. However, I managed to use my words of wisdom to convince him to keep fighting and not give up. He fought back when the gang returned, and managed to kill one of the intruders before he was overcome, and dumped in the family pool. However, he survived, and was rushed to hospital after another girlfriend called an ambulance.
Over the next week, my friend was in hiding. The west gang thought him dead, and had plans to retreive his body later and burn it. When they arrived, my friend hid on the roof and was able to avoid notice. However, starvation began to kick in, and he began to have dizzy spells. Thankfully, he was rushed to hospital again. But on the way, he yelled out profanities against the west gang, who, realising he was still alive, pursued the ambulance, with the east gang, who had also heard him, following.
When they arrived at the hospital, a fight inevitably broke out, and my friend joined in. Eventually both gangs decided to have my friend fight west gang members one-on-one. My friend constantly won each fight, fuelled by pure hate and rage. When he nearly killed a member, the west gang fled, and the gang war ended.
Afterwards, my friend was operated on for his dizzy spells, and nearly died one night. However, he was saved, and it was revealsed that he had a low blood sugar level due to the starvation. The next day saw him eating nothing but pies and coke all day to increase his blood sugar level to a safe level. After 2 weeks in hospital, he returned home to a hero's welcome!
Despite that, my friend was beginning to slip into Depression. Only my words of wisdom were able to keep him going through this entire ordeal.
The family my friend is currently living with has plans to move interstate because of how dangerous the neighbourhood had become. Last I heard, they plan to move away at the start of next year.
However, my friend was still in danger, and 3 months may be too long. West gang members still want him dead. Just recently, he was attacked by west gang members, but was saved by a man. This man, however, had killed his parents 10 years earlier and had tried to kill him too. He still wants my friend dead for god knows what reason. He pretended to have been my friend's uncle, and even let him live with him for a few days. However, it was revealed just yesterday to be a ruse to kill him. My friend escaped to an abandoned house, but was able to remain hidden despite the killer looking for him.
The killer soon rounded up some other people who also want my friend dead. Even now they search for him with plans of murder.
I realised that my friend would have to go to school today, and made some suggestions to get him to school, and to his adopted family's home, safely. I also tried to get him to convince the family to move TODAY, since he could be killed at any moment, and that puts immediate targets on their backs too.
I can only pray that he is able to survive his ordeal, and find a happier life as the rap star he is destined to be. I also hope I can help him in any way I can, even if all I have is online chat.
