Slither.io Tips

2017-05-08The objective is to grow big and kill other snakes. The way you do that is by making their head touch your body. This is a mass multiplayer game. You are always moving and you point your mouse the way you want to move. You can run by holding down on the mousepad. This is your appearance running and not running:

When you run, you lose length twice as fast as when you’re not running. Otherwise, snakes would always be running. If you look in the bottom right, you will see a circle. That circle is the map. The gray specs are snakes. I go areas where snakes are more common. When they die, they dissolve into dots. This is what the dots look like:

The biggest dots are the ones that are part of a snake.

If someone tries to run in front of you, it’s best to run away.

Using the map, I go to the middle. It is the most dangerous but if you survive you can get big. This is what is looks like in the middle:

A description of the middle: Lots of snakes and lots of dead snakes. Either you get really big, or you die.

That is what I usually do. There are two other things people do. Go around the edge of the map and get really big, then go to the middle, or find a big snake in the edge and follow it until it dies.

In 30 seconds in the middle, I grew to about 500. In the back I grew to about 115 in 30 seconds.

Another good way to get big is to find a big snake and follow him until he dies. This is what it looks like:

 

 

When he dies you get to eat this:

This is what it looks like following a big snake. I would recommend following a bigger one though.

 

 

One time, my sister was getting attacked by the first place snake and she killed him. That got her on the leaderboard.

 

Here are some action shots:

I was the one getting circled because my name was Circle Me, No Joke

That was so awesome. Three or four dead snakes. Maybe more.

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

Palomar Observatory Tour

I went on a campout with the Boy Scouts, and on Saturday we went to Palomar Observatory. I am working on my astronomy merit badge, too. The hike was 2.5 miles each way. The observatory looks like a giant white dome with a rectangular strip on the side and top. That strip opens up when the telescope is being used. When we arrived, we went into a room that they called the basement even though it was not below the building.

This is the basement.

 

It stored spare parts and such. Then, we saw the telescope itself. It is huge!

The telescope is too big to fit in the picture.

 

They have a place for different mirrors for the telescope. The different mirrors work well for different functions. Their smallest one is 48 inches and their biggest is 200 inches. They were the first observatory to have a 200-inch mirror. They are the 19th largest observatory in the world. This observatory was built around the time of World War II. The sinks in the bathroom are weird because they have two faucets. One sends out hot water and one sends out cold water.

The tour was very fun!

Nerf N-Strike Elite Rapidstrike CS-18 Review

This is a review of the Rapidsdtrike which is possibly the most famous Nerf gun of all times. I think Hyperfire is better but from what I have heard Rapidstrike is much easier to modify. Enough of that part, now let’s get to the actual review

So anyway, it does actually shoot 3 darts per second. That works for me because most of my friends use single shots. The range of it feels like more than that of a Hyperfire but I think the range is equal. That range is about 30 feet. Its clip (magazine) is cool because it is clear. That is supposedly so you know how much ammo you have left. There is a flaw. That flaw is that you can’t see the whole clip.

Overall, Rapidstrike is a great gun and if I could make a Rapidpistol it would be my secondary.

Vacation to Arizona: Day Two

If you don’t already know, I went to Arizona. On day two, we went to Angels Spring Training at Tempe Diablo Stadium.

The Angels were playing the Diamondbacks. Our friends, Blane and Makela, were there. We got seats in the Party Patio. It has free hot dogs, hamburgers, salad and drinks. Later, they brought out dessert.

In the first inning, the Diamondbacks didn’t score. When the Angels were up, Kole Calhoun hit a single and then Albert Pujols hit a two run home run. The Angels scored two more that inning. About halfway through the game, the Angels were winning seven to one. The Diamondbacks tried to make a comeback by scoring three more runs. Fortunately, it didn’t work. I do not mean to offend any Diamondbacks fans, but I was glad the Angels won. That day was very fun.

Vacation to Arizona: Day One

Last week, we went on vacation to Arizona. It was mainly for Baseball Spring Training, but we did other things. It was quite fun. We didn’t do a lot on the first day because it was mostly driving to Arizona. At one point near Palm Springs, there were thousands of windmills.

This is a tiny fraction of the amount of windmills we saw.

 

The first significant stop was at the University of Phoenix Stadium. It is a football stadium they used for the Final Four. If you don’t know, Gonzaga and North Carolina are in the Championship.

Later that day, we went to Sun Devil Stadium on the ASU campus. Unfortunately, we couldn’t go in. The renovations are not complete. Where we looked in, there were still benches. Some of the benches are already changed to seats now.

We looked through the Southeast Entrance.

 

We stayed at a Fairfield Inn in Chandler. That was day one of our trip to Arizona.

Day Two is probably coming tommorow.
