Ectobiology And Learning How To Perform CPR On A Baby

Ectobiology is the science of cloning, breeding, and genetic modification of an organism using appearification! Typically the one who has to partake in this activity within the session is the session’s designated leader of the SBURB players! Several of the machines needed for the tasks to complete ectobiology are located all over the universe and there seems to typically be more than one of each piece, so I wouldn’t worry too much if yours gets caught in a random explosion of any type. The paradox ghost slime that gets appearified contains the genetic code of the living organism you were attempting to clone. The equipment does most of the work, analyzing the slime and extracting the genome inside to produce replicas or new breeds of species.

Ectobiology does not, however, have to be done only on humans or trolls! For science reasons, you can utilize ectobiology on anything living! For example, our lovely Mutie was an imperfect cloning attempt of Jasper’s paradox ghost imprint, and in imperfect cloning attempts, strange mutations may occur, such as Mutie’s extra eyes!

The process of ectobiology isn’t very difficult in the first place, as you basically are just picking a point in time and space and creating paradox slime from attempting to appearify something that cannot be appearified at that time, such as when Rose tried to appearify Jasper before Roxy would later actually succeed in appearifying him. Then, the Ectobiology Apparatus will intentionally vacuum this slime into tubes, in which there is typically enough tubes for the paradox ghost slime of their current session and their scratch session. Space players will get a similar machine, but one that is specifically utilized for frog breeding. Please for the love of all Genesis Frogs, do not get these mixed up. DO NOT.

Now, if I am honest with you guys, I think the hardest part of all the ectobiology is becoming a temporary parent until the babies are prepped for being shipped back in time on a meteor!

Things I would recommend for leaders to partake in:

  1. Learn how to conduct CPR on babies. It’s so useful since you dont know whats going to be laying around on your planet or what the consorts may attempt to feed them (most of the time its bugs and that’s really gross to know your friend ate a bug once or that your friend let it happen so just don’t).

  2. Carry around one of those mom bags. Y’know the giant bags new moms carry around filled with diapers and formula and bottles and all that stuff? Yeah if the babies are sticking around more than a day you will need this. Desperately.

  3. Create a list of emergency numbers and a list of the best babysitters of the incipisphere. Trust me.

  4. No matter how tempting it may be, do not let the babies near their strife specibus. Please, take it from the girl who’s strife specibus is ScissorKind. Do not let your baby near the strife specibi.  

  5. Give the babies all the affection! I don’t care if your matesprit is super jealous afterwards, just kiss them all over and cuddle them because babies love kisses!.. Unless they don’t, in which you can interact with the child from a distance utilizing silly faces and singing songs!

  6. Send them on the meteor ASAP, please do not keep them past a few months, in which case you might risk causing a Doomed Session by missing the meteors that you need for sending them back in time on Earth.

  7. Never. Take. Your. Eyes. Off. The. Baby. Even if you need to reread this guide, if you have the babies already, DO NOT LOOK AWAY.

And now some words of wisdom from my friend, my session’s leader, Alex!

“for some reason ectobabies are far more advanced than regular babies in terms of like, acrobatics and shit”
“they climb on everything“
“broken glass tubes? look at my new home”
“oh you have a shelf that shouldn’t be able to be climbed?”
“guess what bitch“
“little shits“

Anyways, I think that sums it up! Good luck to your session and please remember the basic rules!

“Patty Jenkins worked really hard with her team to design a style of fighting that was incredibly badass, and believable. Where Batman will punch somebody in the face, and that’s effective, that’s not how the Amazons and Diana fight. They have a disciplined specialized, collaborative fighting style. They work together as a team, and leverage each other’s strengths. They are mighty, they are beautiful. And as the Germans learn, this new breed of badass warrior women are deadly.”

5 NASA Software Codes You Can Download – For Free!

One of the biggest steps of any mission starts right here on Earth at a computer desk – NASA runs on software, period. Rovers can’t move, spacecraft can’t fly, even rockets can’t blast off without the software codes that run them all.

We’ve compiled hundreds of these powerful codes into one location at software.nasa.gov. And guess what? You can start downloading them right now for free! Here are just a few you can use:  

1. TetrUSS (Tetrahedral Unstructured Software System)

TetrUSS has been used extensively for space launch vehicle analysis and design, like on the Space Launch System, which is planned to take humans to Mars.

You really could say it’s helping us to “blast off.” Outside of NASA, this software has been used to analyze Mars planetary entry vehicles, ballistics and even high-altitude sky diver aerodynamics. Basically if anything has moved through any planetary atmosphere, this software has played a role.

2. KNIFE (part of the FUN3D software and released as a package)

The name may be a bit intimidating, but with good reason – KNIFE packs a powerful punch. 

It was created to help us learn more about the sonic booms that resonate when planes break the sound barrier, but it has also helped develop green energy sources such as wind turbines and techniques to minimize drag for long-haul trucking. Maybe we should re-name this versatile and handy code, “Swiss Army KNIFE?”

3. Cart3D (Automated Triangle Geometry Processing for Surface Modeling and Cartesian Grid Generation)

If software codes went to high school, Cart3D would be Prom Queen. This software is so popular, it is being used in almost every mission area here at NASA. 

Engineers and scientists are currently using it to model everything from advanced drones to quieter supersonic aircraft.

4. FACET (Future Air Traffic Management Concepts Evaluation Tool)

Frequent flyers: this may be your favorite code without even knowing it. FACET was developed to evaluate futuristic concepts in air traffic management, and it has served as a testbed for assessing today’s regular operations. 

To sum it up, this software code helps airports keep planes organized in the air and on the ground.

5. GIPSY-OASIS

GIPSY-OASIS is part of the GPS system to end all GPS systems. It’s so accurate, John Deere used it to help create self-driving tractors.

 How? John Deere already had a navigation system in the works, but it could only be used in certain parts of the world. 

Our ground stations are all across the globe, and our software ensures accuracy down to a few inches. And so, a new breed of tractor was born!  Did we mention this software is free?

These are just a few examples of the software NASA has available for free public and consumer use. To browse the catalog online, check out software.nasa.gov.

Normal Horoscope:

Aries: It weighs you down. With weight comes momentum. Be an emotional sumo wrestler.

Taurus: Fear the improperly constructed ikea bookshelf. Those who can make working furniture with no instruction are not to be trifled with. Who knows what they could do.

Gemini: A pestilence of violins.

Cancer: The modern world has given birth to a new breed of arcane. You must be careful.

Leo: A common metal wastebasket worn as a helmet makes excellent defense against slashing weapons. This information will be critical.

Virgo: I asked a star for your fortune but all they did was recite the entire script of the godfather II really really fast.

Libra: Death is a gift. A shit gift, but a gift.

Scorpio: Hyperawareness will only show you things you really shouldn’t see, things you cant really comprehend. Not many last long like that.

Ophiuchus: The familiar is safe, comfortable. There is kindness to perfectionism. There is greater adventure still in failure. Do another shot.

Sagittarius: What? Are you just gonna lie there and wait for another steamroller? 

Capricorn: Get up early, get donuts for breakfast, watch a hardware store burn down while you finish your coffee. Who knows what the day has for you.

Aquarius: You are there, ever fleeting.

Pisces: Your guardian may be a twisted broken thing, but it protects you all the same. Do it a favor and dont look directly at it. Its shy.

Kevin Thorn
[June 13th, 2006]

In the debut episode of the WWE’s Extreme Championship Wrestling brand, several superstars who’d either been ostracized by the WWF or simply held in developmental made their televised debut. Among them was Kevin Thorn, a vampire who merely bared his fans in front of a marquee sign displaying ECW TONIGHT!! The vampire gimmick was said to appease to fans of SciFi, which was rumored to also include aliens. That was later (thankfully) scrapped. Thorn was later accompanied to the ring by Ariel, a vampiress formerly known as Shelly Martinez.

Thorn formerly competed in the WWE as Mordecai, but would have much more success as Kevin Thorn, even competing at WrestleMania 23 in a battle of The New Breed versus ECW originals.

Sarah and Katie had just finished their 4 week training period at Hooter’s Family Restaurant. As evident by their growing bellies, they figured out the “benefits” of the job very quickly.

There never seemed to be a lack of eager men when new girls were hired. On their first night of training tips, compliments, and alcohol were abundant and guys vied for a chance to breed the new girls. Katie and Sarah hadn’t even finished their shift before they were overtaken by the atmosphere. Katie found herself in one of the back rooms with her legs over her head while Sarah never made it past a bathroom stall to have a stud ravish her. Neither girl thought the first night would be risky, but apparently whatever management puts in the food takes hold quickly. Both girls left that night with multiple eggs floating in a pool of seed.

No on their first night as full waitresses, the girls were looking like they had already had their full. Amid all the hustle and bustle…and waddling of the dinner shift, Katie and Sarah took a moment to capture their first night.

“Now off to work,” Katie huffed as she patted Sarah on the belly. “Only 8 more months to make enough money for each of our four before we have to take maternity leave!”

-Kinetic Abilities Prompt List C Edition

Carbokinesis - Control Carbon

  • As someone who happened to buy a lot of coal, I end up with a lot of diamonds.
  • You know those carbon filters in fish tanks? I never have to change mine now. I just sort of wave the guck out? It’s an easy chore.
  • Don’t forget, there’s carbon in steel. If I take it out, this whole city’s going down.

Cardiokinesis - Control Hearts

  • I don’t know why you think this has to do with love. Hearts are organs that only pump blood. I mean, I guess if your heart beats faster, you feel like you’re in love.
  • I spent years in medical school specializing in heart surgery just so I could discretely fix people’s hearts much faster than they should be able to. But whenever anyone asks me what my secret to fast and perfect surgery is, I have to lie and it’s eating me inside.
  • I can see everyone’s relationships, but sometimes it gets really distracting. All these fibrous lines keep obscuring the cinema screen.

Caelestikinesis - Control Celestial Bodies

  • Is it weird I can tell you’re an aries? I’m getting that you’re an aries. 
  • Okay, so making the night sky spell out “will you marry me?” was awesome but I think I ruined a bunch of aliens’ homes. I really hope they don’t know I did that.
  • Being a god of the stars is generally really boring. Nothing’s ever been happening. But this little planet seems to be starting something… Better get closer to watch.

Caelumkinesis - Control the Sky

  • I can hide as anything that flies. So if you happen to see a bird in my room, don’t chase it out with a broom. 
  • If you’re going to be like that, I can make sure you always get rained on.
  • The world is so boring. I finally found out how to make dragons and I’m gonna take the initiative and just making this happen.

Chemokinesis - Control Chemical Substances

  • The hero can’t come and vanquish me if I’ve given them depression.
  • Now that I’ve trapped you in my moat… It’s acid.

Chromokinesis - Control Colors

Chronokinesis - Control Time

  • So, even if I manipulate time, I can’t manipulate space. And Earth moves, so… I kind of killed most of the population. They’re either in space or the mantle.

  • I’ve tricked a constuction crew through a time-portal and now they’re building me a castle in 16th century France. I’ll be king and my castle will never fall.

Cibumkinesis - Control Food

  • I’ll win every cooking competition, no matter how much I mess up. 
  • May your harvest be blighted and your water poisoned. Think twice before crossing me again.

Cthonikinesis - Control Nether

  • Your nether regions are so fucked.
  • How do you feel, facing your own late father in battle?

Cukinesis - Control Copper

  • When NYC falls into peril again, someone with the ability to manipulate copper calls upon the ultimate defense… The statue of liberty.
  • Yeah I can make a shield, but it’s gonna be copper. Sorry I can’t do anything else. 
  • I’ve gotten into the habit of driving by old neighborhoods and making all the copper wiring and pipes be sucked into my truck. It’s only slightly villainous. 

Cogitokinesis - Control Thought

  • If you’re going to be so angry about my favorite song, enjoy it in your head forever.
  • I make quite the racket erasing unwanted thoughts. Where those thoughts go though is only for me to worry about. 
  • My robots seem too mechanical. I should steal someone’s thoughts to give them a bit of personality. 

Cognikinesis - Control Perspectives

  • Most of the time I just force video games to let me play first person, I’m not sure what you expected.Forcing people to look at what they’ve become is a lot like judgement day.
  • When people make me upset, I like to make them see my actual point of view. 
  • It doesn’t matter how far away something is, if I can see it, I can touch it.

Comakinesis - Control Hair

  • No I only have one of these wool sweaters. I can just change it’s color because it’s technically hair.

  • Now that you’ve shown me what your attack will be, let me eliminate that possibility.

Coronakinesis - Control Corona Energy

Corrokinesis - Control the Power of Corruption

  • I really don’t like corruption, so I keep combing the internet for instances of corruption to take it out, hitman style.
  • I’ve condensed corruption into these special bullets. I want you to shoot all this list, no matter how nice you think they are.
  • Wait, I can basically make this into a hell-dimension? Awesome. Sin for everyone.

Cryokinesis - Control Ice

  • If you keep annoying me all the liquid in your body is gonna freeze.
  • I’ve got the polar ice caps fixed, Antartica is looking good, and I’ve got enough snow cones today’s day at the park. 
  • You’ve gotta believe me, officer! The icicle just plain fell on them! It skewered them!

Crystallokinesis - Control Minerals and Crystals

  • My modern witchcraft store is stocked full with crystals and stones. And it’s all homemade.
  • If I really tried, I could get my crystal healing techniques to go towards a doctorate.
  • You picked the wrong mineshaft to battle me in. You’be basically given me the battle. 

Cytokinesis - Control Cells of Organisms

  • My friend wanted to be a cryptid so we brainstormed for a while and they decided on their form. We still chat when I’m in town.
  • Even if I’m terminal, I can just fix it. I don’t see why I shouldn’t be allowed to fix you too.
  • Changing what shape my cells take is the ultimate camouflage. No one suspects the dog.

Bilal: A New Breed of Hero is finally coming to US theaters on September 22, 2017! 

MARK THIS DAY ON YOUR CALENDERS AND BE SURE TO GO SUPPORT THIS MOVIE!

MAY HOROSCOPES

Mercury ends its retrograde this month, but a full moon in Scorpio and an intense new moon in Gemini are on the way!

Aries: Know that no one can truly understand the kind of person you are. And it has been especially hard these last few weeks. You are the only one who can see how strong you are. You are a fighter and a warrior and you will never see your land be conquered by another’s bones.

Taurus: To someone, you are their whole world. You must see yourself as the sun. The things you will accomplish this month will be grand because you are ready to give your whole self away. Sometimes this is good, especially when everyone around you needs your light.

Gemini: It feels as though you’ve been far away from yourself, lately. It seems like all you do is pick at yourself until you don’t have any more to say. Learn to take control of that lion voice again. With all of its working parts, you will be growing once more.

Cancer: It seems that you may have had an overwhelming few weeks. There’s no other sign who could have handled this with as much compassion as you. Prioritize yourself first this month. Send out those postcards and relax. Let your mind catch up to your body.

Leo: Let the right people step into your light this time. I know you wish to shine on everyone like a comet swallowing the earth whole. But, some only want to crush rocks. You must protect yourself but you mustn’t sacrifice your shine.

Virgo: Let those birds in your heart fly free this month. Finally, the universe has aligned for you and all of your endeavors. Learn to listen without those eyes in the back of your head. Listen with your whole heart and let yourself trust.

Libra: Life has been steering you in all different directions lately yet nothing drastic has happened. This month, the places where you have gone and the people you have met will all make sense to you now. There’s a spot right in the center of the universe for you and you may get there sooner than you think.

Scorpio: You are way more complex than people can ever imagine. You may have been a bit down these past few weeks but trust that the stars have other plans for you, if you only let them in. Your personal goals have a way of just falling into your lap this month so don’t close your eyes just yet.

Sagittarius: Leave old habits behind because a new breed of chaos is about to stumble in. An exciting surprise is on its way and the arrow is pointing straight at you. There’s new air to breathe, and there’s new life to take out of your old one.

Capricorn: There’s been a huge change in your life this month, but don’t worry, something good will come out of it. All you have to do is greet it like an old friend. There’s things that it will tell you about where you’re headed in life and where the universe will take you this month.

Aquarius: There are people in your life that want you to believe that what you’re doing is wrong. But your way is the one that works for you. It’s the one that will lead others straight to turmoil, but to you, that’s adventure. Hardships come your way, and instead of going around them, you go through them.

Pisces: A surge of confident energy is coming your way this month and you have to grab on. New people will walk into your life and they will have a bigger importance than you know. But soon, you will realize that there can be no dark without light. And there’s much more sunlight coming your way.

Lykoi, the werewolf cats.

“Lykoi” is the Greek word for “wolf” and it has been adopted to name a new, fascinating cat breed. Also known as the werewolf cat, the Lykoi owes its very distinctive look to a natural genetic mutation that occurred in a few completely unrelated litters. One was from a Sphinx mother, one from a very common black domestic shorthair.

These cats have been tested for possible genetic illnesses and have been found to be healthy, so a few breeders have decided to try and make it into a proper new breed. In 2012, the Lykoi went before the The International Cat Association (TICA) and were passed to “Registration Only” status. This means that they are now a recognized breed with TICA.
