Here's something you might find interesting. I enjoy playing Clue, as does my family. A short while ago we bought a new board, and we've been playing with it. Everything was going fine, until something freaky started happening. Almost always Professor Plum did it. We tried shuffling differently, checking the cards, everything. Then we started keeping track. as of now of 15 times played, our favorite Egyptologist did it 11 times. Now that's just freaky. He did it with an array of weapons and locations, but he's been consistently a killer. Anyone know how to excorsise a game piece?

Hello everybody. I've been quiet for a bit, busily building a computer program that can understand curse words, a ski game that takes in your head location for its tilt, and an alternative sense pathway through the back. But I have bigger news: In a month I'll be in California helping the good people at instructables, and hopefully building a few things that you will find interesting. This is a great community and I'm sure you'll be hearing a good deal from me in the near future. Yours in awesome. The instructaturn -lamedust (BG) This is me in disguise:

Hi, I'm trying to bodge up an engine hour meter for my motorbike (single cylinder) and I'm hoping to find a circuit diagram somewhere. I know you can buy these ready to go but apart from the fact that I have several motorbikes and they are about $NZ90 each, well it just isn't the point, is it? Why spend money when for the sake of a few hours cursing at dodgy connections and burning myself with asoldering iron I can play creator!! Any info would be appreciated, thanks. Nick

It is not often that I find something so useless so awesome. Freddie Yauner's toaster pops your toasted bread way up into the air with high-pressure carbon dioxide. He is going to try to break his own world record of the highest toaster pop, which currently stands merely at the height of his ceiling. An added bonus of this: if he pops it to the right height, he may be able to avoid the curse of the toast always falling butter-side down.Link

3D Island Picture Box, Diorama, Wall art, Curse of Oak Island Theme, Framed by Ocean, Money Pit depicted.. Hoping someone in crafts knows a good instructable on creating such an wall depiction as a gift 2 months hence... The Money Pit was discovered by two boys from Canada a long time ago on Oak Island and now is a treasure hunt reality show.. In fact there are tour groups visiting this now well known island... It is my desire to make a 3D version of this island and embed a replicate of one of the micro treasures found over the years.

This is the weirdest thing ever. It's my laptops internal mic, a 5$ mic and a 15$ mic I just bought a couple of hours ago. My main assumption is they are buzzing so much that my voice is being cancelled off by my computers. On the 15$ i can hear very loud buzzing and even my voice over it. But on the other two absolutely nothing. Thinking it was a grounding issue I tried taking my laptop everywhere in my house, but the results are the same. They appear to work fine in a distance from the building I live in. Is my house cursed or what?

Hi, i just bought Samsung galaxy and I dont use my old phone (nokia 5800) and i was wondering if i could do something with it. i thought of a lot of thing but the one thing i always wanted to do is a spy cam. the phone is big and it doesn't count as hidden thing and i looked at the phone and again i was wondering =P if i could disassemble the phone and use just the camera piece and make some electric thing and it will record when i press some button and stop when i push it again. and of curse i could connect it to a computer or use sdcard so it will be small and no one would notice it. so =P can i make it or something like it using other thing???? thanks, mike

Since last night (07/ 09/ 08) Until moments ago, I was unable to connect to the web through a browser ( my ISP said I was connected, but I was having NO luck bringing up a page from anywhere). Finally, after 6 restores, 9 reboots, one wasted service call to the ISP, 30+ tweaks that I now have to go and put back (since they didn't help at ALL), I had had it, and restored back to SUNDAY (cursed MicroSoft Critical Updates). It worked. And my 18 hour hiatus is finally over.....I was getting very worried ( partially since I pay most of my bills on line, they would be late if I had to snail mail them). Glad to see you all are still behaving LOL.

I've recently noticed that embedded Vimeo-hosted videos don't play in Firefox 47. While they don't even show In SRWare Iron or SlimBrowser, in Firefox the video window is visible and sets up ready to play, but when moused over it displays a meaningless error ("Curses!", "Aw fiddlesticks!", etc.) claiming "This video can't be played with your current setup". "Leg for a wooden table (incredible strength)" is a recent 'ible example. If I go through the process of searching the page source code for the video (https://player.vimeo.com/video/171982493 in the above example), copy and paste the URL, and go to the link directly, the video plays perfectly, so it's not some browser or other setting that's blocking Vimeo. (Even tried with all browser add-ons disabled - no joy.) I'm not competent enough to troubleshoot the issue, but it's frustrating to have to dissect the page to play embedded videos in a separate tab. Any work around would be appreciated. Thanks.

Hello boys and girls, this weekend my trusty laptop had failed on me. After cursing up a storm and mashing every button possible i finally found the "restore" CDs of my laptop hd partion. I got it restored to factory fresh and was ready to rock and roll when i get an error yesterday stating that "SMART" has detected iminate drive failure or some crap like that. After searching i uploaded new firmware for the hd hopeing it would go away. It didn't. I ran a self test and it said bad Hard drive. My question is as follows. How hard is it to replace a laptop hard drive (other than switching out drives), if I burn a copy of the restore CDs will it install windows on the new hard drive or do i have to send it to HP/ buy windows At this point i am not worried about loosing any data (done did that twice already) just want a computer that doesnt pop that error message everytime i reboot. My laptop is a Compaq Presario F700 and i had it for almost 3 yrs to the day

Thursday has been declared Talk like Shakespeare day! We don't know exactly when he was born, but we're calling April 23 close enough! Readeth the proclaimationeth. Refuse to speak in any tongues save ye olde english Thursday, and force your friends to do the same! Here are 10 quick tips on how to talk like Billy from http://talklikeshakespeare.org/:1 Instead of you, say thou. Instead of y'all, say thee. (This one will be hard for me! :D )2 Rhymed couplets are all the rage.3 Men are Sirrah, ladies are Mistress, and your friends are all called Cousin.4 Instead of cursing, try calling your tormenters jackanapes or canker-blossoms or poisonous bunch-back'd toads.5 Don't waste time saying "it," just use the letter "t" ('tis, t'will, I'll do't).6 Verse for lovers, prose for ruffians, songs for clowns.7 When in doubt, add the letters "eth" to the end of verbs (he runneth, he trippeth, he falleth).8 To add weight to your opinions, try starting them with methinks, mayhaps, in sooth or wherefore.9 When wooing ladies: try comparing her to a summer's day. If that fails, say "Get thee to a nunnery!"10 When wooing lads: try dressing up like a man. If that fails, throw him in the Tower, banish his friends and claim the throne.

Hey I think someone started something like this already but I don't know what happened to it or if it is still active so I started my own. It's located Here or there or how about right here?So yeah come here for a quick chat. It will probably be easier than spamming topics with a useless conversation like the ones you could have in the chat. When you get there and you haven't joined Xat yet then click on your name to change it and your avatar. I'm most likely going to need at least 2-3 (depending on how many actually do come regularly) mods. There are a few rules and if you don't follow then then you will be first kicked as a warning and then banned for a day. If you still continue to break rules you'll be perma. banned from the chat.~Rules~-You may curse but only lightly and not at others. It has to stop when/if there is someone who requests it for the duration that they are there.-No fighting. You must respect everyone. If you disrespect an owner or a mod then you will automatically skip from getting a kick to getting banned for the day.-You may talk about other things but I do request you do stay relatively on topic for the most part.-Please remain in the chat while you are online. It helps me and the main reason people who aren't on a chat room are because no one else is. It starts a chain reaction of inactivity.Alright have fun you guys. I like talking to all of you personally so this will sure be fun for me to meet more of my fellow knexers.

Hey guys I'm still here, I'm sorry Ive been super busy (college is coming up so =\ I gotta visit places, keep good grades, and all that stuff) Well wow I have time on my hands for once, I have a couple of days off from work, mid terms in school are done and the studying is over (THANK YOU!!!) anyways whats up everyone? I have no idea whats new in the knex world of instructables really... well umm what about me what have I been up to (other then what Ive said above?) ehh not much work, school, study, the average. however I got a new laptop hooray no more crappy weak one, no more 15 inch screens now 17 haha!. Also Windows 7 is beautiful! however one blessing that is also a curse for a retro PC gamer like me. It's 64 bit. 64 bit computers are out 16 bit programs are basically incompatible and remember that Knex wars game? Well after a while I forgot about it, and with 64 bit, I cant work on the Doom engine, or Wolfenstein. and N64... forget it please... Is there still a want for such a thing? Well even if there isn't I'm still gonna work on it, since my Programing teacher said I can do anything for my final, I guess a game would work. Now for something interesting Thank you DSman(insert numbers here) - for introducing me to Game maker. Ive gotten pretty good at it, granted not the best out there but good enough to successfully clone Wolfenstein 3D though I'm not a great AI person unless its gird biased as for multi player well I don't understand all this tutorials telling me so but hey I'm trying anyways so you be the judge on how good I may be, bellow is a picture of a game I started working on a while ago but only worked on it for like 4 days before my visit to NYU, then didnt have time to work on it since, but I think I'll put this game on hold. unless you guys want this insted

First off, theres probably a million questions you can ask yourself. you need to take this concept, ask yourself these questions, or ask yourself your own questions. Get a friend to write out your questions. You can Kinda rely on there Input of you as they see it. First, write your own quick questions then have a friend do it if you want to go that route. compare your questions and the question of your friend in trying to determine your future. If they dont match up in around 75 percent, drop the friend. there more than likely to bring you down. also, it might open your friends eyes to change if you just cut ties, if he/she is really a friend they'll jump on the bandwagon and try to make a real future for themselves. The Reason for the questions and noteboon is because, Most of you dont know what you really want or have given up on dreams because it was easy to give up on them. Most of you arent determined to actually work hard for your dream. If your not ready to realize who you are, then give up and leave. "This isnt about YOU its About ME." You say that as you leave, and its understood with clarity. Its about you making a decision. Its going to be hard to trully realize yourself, your ticks and perks, your passions, and what you hate because the mind is always conjective and supplies reasoning beyond means. you could say hey "I could be the messiah." Not that you are or arent, who am I to say your not what you believe. the thing is, your mind can, without doubt, create and make you in reasoning "The Messiah". thats whats good about the mind and bad about the mind. acceptability. The messiah died 2000 years ago. rose up, went to heaven and it says he's returning from heaven on a white horse. Not Bluejeans and brain notification at the last minute. You have to set and determine reality without passibility. Its time to realize who you are and what it is you need, crave, and expect for the future and quit getting in debt to your passibility and work hard to independantly supply yourself without ever using a credit card, without ever buying another car on credit, without ever buying anything on credit, you need to be active and in charge and quit allowing these crooks to screw you out of time for your own personal dream and accomplishment, quit dying daily and rise up and make the sheet hit the fan in there directions , and dont look back. First, the questions need to be in specific and not an entire self bible. you want to be able to know when someone asks you about your family, who your mother, father and grandparents are, how they excelled or didnt excel in life, and infact who you are. People respect someone who is aware. Question yourself on HERITAGE. Thats your first question, find out about your life, what health problems you have might not be a God blaming you as some say "He mustve really made god mad" because those people are stupid. It most liely is an Inherited illness that you need to know about, you need to listen to the signs man, because i believe in God, and I respect your way in your belief, but the signs are there. If your father died from a heartattact, more than likely, your going to have the same dna link to what will trigger it, or your son or daughter will. you need to get intocuh with heritage, humble yourself, curse yourself. get intouch, that should be your first pages. how predestined life will incure with your life. Make plans, and set forth action in your HERITAGE IMMEDIATELY. Tommorow will be a new category to question, so lets take steps to success.

Well i hate to bother anyone but can you please take some time to read this book i worked hard on ? i spent countless hours of my free time over the weekend developing the plot and creatures so can you please take some time out to read the whole thing tell me what it needs or what would be good i already am 16 pages into the sequel so tell me if this is good so i can post the sequel ! enjoy Times come by Alby Chapter 1- beginning It was the night I would never forget,the night.......i....the......the last night I would enjoy life. It was spring of 2017 the night air was heavy in my lungs and you could faintly smell the BBQ and charcoal smoke from cookouts that died down hours ago I could here people talking and having a good time but I think my drink I grabbed the wrong beer it was Sarah's it was spiked I never would have noticed who did it at least it wasn't her to drink it. I simply enjoyed the sky line of Chicago filled with sky scrapers and mirror like office buildings it all seemed like a Bokeh picture to me the drug is taking affect on my body I feel dizzy . I hopped on the train, it was empty as for the weather gave a good reason to walk but I needed to get home safely. In about 30 minutes I was home. I clumsily walked up the stairs and almost fell it took about ten minutes before I opened the door, I then plopped down on my bed and ran to the bathroom and regurgitated everything I ate that night. i starred at the ceiling. I saw every detail to the nearest centimeter and then blurry the specks the marks swirled in my vision and I felt weightless for a while. I starred at the clock and noticed it was about 4:00 am and cursed myself for going to that bar with Sarah I threw up all over my bed. I tried to grab the phone to call the paramedics but I fell and hit my head on my night stand. I passed out from the concussion i fell into a deep sleep a very deep sleep. Chapter 2 Change I wiped the crust out of my eyes and felt my head a sharp pain rippled thru my scalp it was a Gash about two inches in length. i walked into the bathroom I pulled the faucet but all that came out was a wisp of air. I snatched a baby wipe and cleaned off my face I cleaned my wound with alcohol the sting ive gotten used to I used to get hurt pretty bad in the army, I got shrapnel in my knee and they sent me home the first year. I noticed a dead silence on the street I thought they probably closed it off for some type of repair. I put on my white tee shirt and noticed its softness and how it fit snug on my semi-muscular figure I was in good shape for a twenty-four year old, my mom would always tell me most of the people in America are fat but I guess she loves to tell stereotypes for what they are. I put on my jeans and not forgetting the belt this time either. I snatched my keys off the kitchen counter and headed for the door. I walked outside and paused too look at the empty streets filled with litter and carnage . My mouth wide open in amazement I asked myself what happened and pondered the different reasons riot,panic,fire what could cause such a mess, I walked towards a police squad car and smelled something rancid I slowly proceeded, I instantly veered back in panic I could not believe what I saw a dead police officer lying face down with half a chunk blown clean off his head. There were pieces of it every where splattered on the windshield and door of the police car and some on the concrete. I instinctively inched towards him and thought to myself that something bad is happening and I need protection. I unhooked his holster off his waist and placed it on mine I pulled off his Kevlar vest and put it on weirdly enough it barely was messy or smelled bad. I checked the pockets of the vest and took out a pair of keys I knew it belonged to his squad car. I first popped open the trunk and saw it glistening in the sun a Ar-15 assault rifle. I picked it up and the memories of my army training it just instantly popped into my mind. I guess it applied the same here, I slung it around my back and walked into the silence. I took out the pistol put in the clip pulled the slide back and switched the safety off and cautiously held it. I believe the gun made me more nervous than whats in the shadows, I walked down the narrow street and saw it the skyline of the city filled with smoke and fire. I stood in anger and confusion my home town ravaged broken and charred blood stained the streets and walls, but why.....why....how could this... I mean what could....d..do such a thing. I walked away in the opposite direction and then cut into an alley way to piss and paused as I heard a roar I looked up and saw a quick glance of the belly of a apache attack craft it quickly zoom by and then another. I looked away and ran out of the alley and then down the street to see what direction they were heading. They sped towards the lake area and then I saw a tiny black object fall horizontally from the choppers belly and it slowly fell, then a explosion. I could feel the vibrations. the explosion ripped the lake area into nothing....nothing..but....but...smoke. My heart skipped a few beats thinking what if the next one falls in this area I quickly broke my daydream and bolted as fast as I could as far as I could until I saw a woman crawling on the concrete she was Moaning and holding her stomach. I came up behind her and asked for help. She turned on her back “ Sarah? Ohh my god sarah are you okay ?” and she held a gun in her hand a Glock 22 model the slide locked all the way back and no clip in the gun. I kicked it out of her and and sprung on her she begged for mercy “albert you have to stay away from me im turning” she saw that I was armed and quickly told me the gun was unloaded and that she was sorry she told me she would do anything just get away from her . I told her “Im not here to hurt anyone I just want to help” I starred at her beautiful figure her perfect face and thin hourglass body but ragged cloths and red eyes from crying. How and what did she go thru that could turn her into such a wreck. She got up and put her arm around my shoulder kissed me on the cheek and passed out. I dragged her to an fenced off alley where there was a mattress I put her down and sat next to her .she hugged me and began to cry she than jumped on top of me “Sarah what are you doing no we cant do this now no!” I told her I will help her but I dont think she understood a word I said. She looked at me in my eyes I could feel her touch my soul, her blue eyes glared in the sun. “i dont want to die alone please” I stood up nervously, I was concerned for her health when suddenly I heard a bang then felt a sharp pain in my leg. I collapsed in agony and saw the cause of my pain a bean bag round I looked up and saw a gas mask wearing figure he shot me with another bean bag round in the knee, from his shot gun he then walked over my numb body and. picked up both bean bag's and threw it aside two people in hazmat gear grabbed Sarah and took off her clothing I screamed “what are you doing to her!!!” they did not acknowledge me they looked at her body like they where searching for something. Her passed out figure limp as a rag doll they removed her pants then her underwear I screamed “No!! you son of a bitch don't do it ill kill you” they studied a bite mark on her upper thigh they made some type of hand signal and left. the soldiers then they came and started pouring gasoline on the mattress and her body. the one with the kriss super V took his cigarette out of his mouth and then flicked it at her it rolled of of her shapely belly and hit the mattress her body bursted into flames and she spasmed and kicked wildly. Then the man pointed it me and said in a British accent “ knock that fuckin Yankee an put em in da ACP double time, thoes hungry bastards are comin” Chapter 3 world gone mad I awoke on a bed in clean clothes and a hair cut. I stood up and walked into the hallway and noticed that this was a hospital. Suddenly a hand grabbed me. “aey where do you think your going ya damn runner rapist” I starred at him & his arrogant look and heavily customized ACR bushmaster. “get the fuck away from me im leaving what ever the hell this place is” he then sprung up and pushed the barrel of his ACR into my neck. “look if you want to get devoured by those runners be my guest buddy but dont go exposing this place to the infection” I looked at him like he was retarded “infection what infection and why the hell is the army bombing populated areas” he looked at me the same way. “ where were you 2 days ago ? There was a virus it was originally H1N1 but it evolved up to 10 times now its got Chicago by the balls and its spreading across the world as we speak turning everyone into animals devouring and ripping people to shreds and then the virus takes over the dead body and brings it back as a runner also know as a fresh undead body that has the ability to run or sometimes sprint god forbid but after 2-4 weeks without food the tissue breaks down from constant use without fuel and they start to get slow and shuffle around” my mind felt overwhelmed I wondered how my parents were doing in Dallas. “so what am I supped to do here but be a waste of space” he grinned. “well you obviously know how to use a weapon and our records say you have been in the military. you cant take care of yourself out there so we will make you part of out kill squad. “kill squad ?” “ohh shit you mean you have never killed or seen any infected yet ? that means your fresh you can be put to good use in our kill team” he told me his name was henry the specialist of his team kill team Charlie-mike. He directed me to the staff sergeant who looked at me and said “well well well we got some fresh meat hope you ready for 3 months of hard core trainin cuz this wont be easy now get yo ass in the garage and clean every APC tire the armory I think the kill teams ran over a little too much runners” 3 Months later........ the training was more rigorous than the basic military stuff a the armory where there was at least a 100 others conversing and grabbing into boxes of gear. Henry took me to the gunny of the armory where he helped me choose my gear. I picked up dragon skin Kevlar with implanted ceramic & alloy inserts. I took some gloves which I cut the fingers of. My boots where the basic digital camo color probably a left over from the war in Iraq which ended several years ago when our president simply drew the troops out. And European troops and some Russians finished off the big time terrorists soon after we heard no more from any our genocidal efforts finally payed off. I went to the weapon stand where I had to fill out a ID sheet to make sure they knew I had training with combat rifles. I chose the ACR which was in stock by the thousands as a gift from the weapon companies to the American army. I pulled all the safety clips and then grabbed a eotech scope out of a box and locked it onto the rail system of the weapon. I attached a mag pull the every one of my carbon strength reinforced clips. The gunny looked at me with a grin and we left for briefing. Chapter 4 things get messy we met up in the garage of the hospital every runner hunter of this kill force a total of 300 men and women in the huge elevated parking complex of the hospital, a general arrived in the elevator his chrome glasses shined in the evening light so did the many badges pinned on his suit which fit his old figure rather awkwardly. he had two formally dressed men with him they both had desert eagles on there side holsters but the general had a FN 2000 slung around his back. it was worn and scratched its polymer body was embedded with and insignia that I did not see so well as it was obscured by the scuffs and grime he looked at us and smiled his mouth opened and he flung his cigar off the ledge of the building he then begun and explained in a dominant voice. “there are 40 spec op Humvee's set up in formation ready to patrol the streets of Chicago you all will be in sector 6 the most dangerous sector of Chicago but no need to worry we have full fledged firepower of 4 APC's which will Carrie your kill team to your objectives take as much time as needed the runners arent going any where. you will clear the sears tower area a hot spot for runners. look all you men and woman, its time to revolt and fight back. its time to say we will not be scared, we will not be intimidated, we will win back our freedom!!” the whole complex light up with cheer. As the two men in formal wear took out PDA's and started directing people to there kill teams the first man shouted “ Chavez,Williams,buck, and,Samson go to APC #1” I quickly advanced thru the crowd to APC 1 I slowed my pace and saw its matte paint job of digital camo and its pop up dillan machine gun turret mounted on top. I pounded on its steel behind and its back door unlatched I stood waiting for the rest of my team I saw all three walking in a line towards the door I saw him ,the man with the kriss super V he smiled at me and said “no fuckin way you tha yankee we picked up in tha alley way you mad cus we killed your little runner girlfriend” I sprung towards him and grabbed his collar and punched him in the stomach then elbowed him in the mouth all the color drained out of his face. “ if you wouldn't of shot me with a fucking bean bag I would of blown your brains out back at the alley” he looked at me and with blood dripping down his mouth “i was just doing my job. welcome to foxtrot 3 by my names john samson you can just call me hunter” I let him go and he limped into the APC then another walked towards me he wore a Grey baklava and tight fitting clothing and a vest that barely covered his chest which awkwardly bulged out he walked towards me and took off the mask. She looked at m surprised face and said “what ? a woman cant be in the military” “well I..I...I just did not expect to have such a high rank personnel on our team” she looked at me and frowend “were both specialists grade one my names Kelly williams” “a heavily armored male in a hijab walked towards me playfully he came up to me and pulled off his hijab he was a African American . “hey specialist now look Im basically here to keep the moral you catch me ? I was in the navy im Ricky buckman Just call me squid now what do you want to go by kid?” I smiled “echo” “nice choice” Albert “echo” chavez I thought in my head I figured that sounds good. We all jumped in the APC while a kill team of rangers in a heavy Humvee with a mounted sentry gun rolled behind us as the whole convoy of kill force 6 prepared for battle. I thought about all my training aim for the head,short controlled bursts a shot anywhere else just stunned them. They move fast so they have to be neutralized if you get bitten or infected kill yourself with the poison capsule that was given or a team mate would do it. I grabbed a Kukri blade off the weapon rack that was provided in the APC I looked at its razor sharp edge its brushed steel surface reflected no light I sheathed it and strapped it to my leg. I caught the eye of Kelly who was fiddling around with the UAV control panel she looked at me and smiled. The APC's lights blinked red prompting us that we are in a hot zone. The APC vibrated as the co pilot took out a pack of runners with the Dillon remote controlled mini gun. We all loaded our weapons and packed up some ammo. Hunter and squid looked at each other and they bumped fists. I put a clip in my ACR and cocked it I turned on the eotech scope and strapped on my helmet and then slid on a black baklava. The APC driver prompted a alarm which was the signal that the door was opening, the big metal door slowly lowered its platform to the ground and we all got out Kelly was the last one out she grabbed that control panel and slid it into her bag she ran out and flipped the close button on the APC. We met up with the four other teams in our sector who already exited there Humvee's. A black Humvee that I never knew was in the convoy rode up and a military adviser jumped out and barked orders like some scared little dog and then jumped back in glad that he wasn't us. He positioned eight snipers on the roof who where each divided into teams of four they zip lined up the roofs and soon each team where picked up by two little bird helicopters the rest of us where on the ground either Humvee calvary hit teams or long range grenade support foxtrot was positioned on the magnificent mile at least it was magnificent. We cautiously walked down the street with another team of 6 watching our back and little birds with snipers covering us and telling us where the nearest pack is. It was empty until we got a report a pack of twenty runners where heading straight for us about 3 blocks away we had about a minute to prepare, snipers took out some and only six broke there steady aim and where 5 feet away, I drew my weapon and just before I could fire a Humvee rammed half the pack of runners over my team shot at there heads to finish them off . I stunted back and fell startled by a runner with broken legs dragging its smelly corpse towards me, my team did not even notice as they where pre occupied with finishing off the pack it grabbed my boot and pulled itself onto my chest I pushed it back and hunter tackled it and shot it once it grazed its ear he then rad up to it and curb stomped its head in over and over, like an egg it crunched under his boot he then walked towards me and picked me up and then our comm's screeched with a danger code: sector red REPEAT SECTOR RED!! this is not a drill!! squid looked at Kelly “OH shit radio the APC radio the APC!!” Kelly hastily radioed the APC and it arrived around the corner ASAP she got in and took the panel out of her backpack all the rangers got back in there Humvee's and formed up a line of vehicle's and the APC was in front we all jumped in and squid popped open 3 of the four combat hatches. We took stance and poked our body's out of the hatches while Kelly was typing away at the panel. “Kelly get us that predator drone NOW!!” “on it Echo..about.....NOW!! get ready for some boom boom boys” she said over the comm a predator drone deployed from a building somewhere and roared across the city's night sky. The little birds shot flares into out immediate area and the military advisor said nervously over the comm “formation green zone ASAP make space for one more hummer!!” his hummer screeched into our circle formation at the middle of the block intersection. We all could hear the uproar and the screaming rage of the Runners it was 9:00 PM and my stomach dropped as runners came at us from every angle swarming in between all the vehicles as we took out as much as we can the advisor yelled. “Break formation head for lane 3 of sector 5 Kelly yelled “but thats a dead end we have no where to go !!” “exactly now MOVE !!” we hastily rammed out way thru the crowd of runners it was easily about 200 to 300 runners we reached the street which was a dead end it was blocked by a collapsed building from all the beach bombing runs. We waited for 5 minutes until we saw it our doom three times as much runners appeared and headed for the convoy. The driver looked bewildered “Get ready im breaking position” he advanced the APC towards the crowd its massive tires gripping the rubble and concrete so agile and quick. He opened fire the Dillon mini gun until there was not one round left. the APC swiveled madly like a dog chasing its tail, all the blood and body matter stuck to the tire made it impossible to control. The whole interior rocked forward on impact with the flipped car. suddenly a screech and the APC flipped over on its side. the runners ignored the APC and went for the group of Humvee's ripping the rangers out that had not locked there Humvee door and devouring them. We herd the screams despite layer after layer of Kevlar and Armour of the APC. My radio started to squawk. “ Pindad Panser down repeat,flipped on its side calling in little bird for support !! bring in UH-60 shadow for medivac ASAP!” I groaned in pain the impact was hard,i could taste blood in my mouth my world was spinning. my team mates did not move they where all laying face down. I soon passed out Chapter 5 delta crimson “Delta crimson GO GO GO !!” I awoke in a sweat, I felt normal again I wiped my blood crusted face off. I leaned up and saw them. “Squid Kelly Hunter Your all alive !” hunter smiled “the crowds not givin up. Hurry mate we got to get outta this APC or crimson is just gonna have to save us” Crimson was an elite rescue squad of some of the best rescue force members in the military marines,rangers,green berets, you name em they can save you. Suddenly we heard the roar of helicopters. Then the door of the APC light up and blew of its hinges a soldier in a crimson baklava shined a light me and my team he latched two metal hooks onto our APC and then the helicopter lifted us into the air, this vehicle the best attack helicopter crafted by the engineer crew over at Hudson base they called it the Shadow because thats all it was, a quick killer in the night. A man made machine manufactured to kill and thats what it was best at. I broke for the chopper and jumped in then squid then Kelly it started to take off right before it left ground hunter grabbed the bay door and climbed in. “forgetting something ?” He threw me my ACR bushmaster which started to look like the generals FN 2000 it was scuffed and marked in every crack and crease. A crimson medivac specialist handed us some refreshments and snacks he said he picked it up at his last raid. He gave me some meds, adrenalin shots use them as a last resort of energy he said. I looked at squid who was holding his dog tag “ man echo you see how that APC flipped on us I almost crapped my pant's” I laughed at the joke even if its not funny my team needs the moral. I looked it the pilot he caught my stare. “where going to the main objective” I sighed and looked away hunter looked at me and made some type of hand signal. “hey Kelly you think we could of died back there” “easily hunter luckily the runners did not find our APC interesting” I looked over at Kelly who was looking at the cracked screen of the control panel. “hey Kelly what all did you use that panel for” “i saved the whole platoon with this thing while you where taking a nap, now its gone and base is a long fly away. The screen broke when the APC flipped. And the predator drone crashed without me controlling it” “damn, nothing good ever lasts long does it” “well echo thats not true your still alive aren't you ?” I we both smiled and when the happiness broke it was back to work. chapter 6 Raid The shadow landed on the roof of a building about 3 blocks away from objective R.R.T.R (runner ruled territory raid) our forces had to kill all runners and take back the sears tower. Kelly was stationed on the roof with hundreds of other snipers .with her barret M82 which ripped into 2 to 3 runners at a time with its large caliber amour piercing rounds. Military advisors sent Ground troops they marched the streets for the main attack on the R.R.T (runner ruled territory). Soldiers of all pact creed and faction marched side by side. the ISF (Iraqi Security Forces) the IRA (Irish Republican Army) even the CIA and DEA forces were marching along with whole police precincts including the bulk of the U.S military. This battle was inevitable and we are going to win.
