I’m doing Hitler, Mao and Castro for authoritarian states and Cold War. Any tips on what specific parts to memorise (should I for us on memorising the exact dates or just the rough tip period and in what order)? What topics should I go other in specific detail. How long should each essay be?
I started a new game on this guy I'm dating pokemon crystal. Please tell me it's a separate file and I didnt loose literally 90p hours of work. I didnt hit continue or restart I just pressed new game. Please tell me his pokemon are still in there!
I know the 1st step is to visualize the exterior as a jigsaw puzzle, but it's still hard to comprehend because of how slow the movement of the plates is.
I also wonder if it's possible because gaps are opening and closing simultaneously.
Ethan heaved a deep sigh, holding his flashlight aloft and pointed at the ground with his left hand, while his right ran over the ground like a large, dark spider.
Not once, in all his thirty-seven years, had he seen a trail this long, or this rough. The crystal was black and jagged, like gritted obsidian, and ran a fine line along the path like a long, dark snake, leading into a patch of trees just ahead. Usually, the trails that lead to the crystals were soft, crumbling into dust at the slightest touch. But this one remained firm beneath his hand.
Ethan sprang to his feet and took off in the direction of the line, taking light, quick strides, his eyes darting from the crystalline trail to the grove of trees looming ahead of him. What on earth could have happened to the person who created this trail...?
He trudged along the path, keeping his eyes fixed along the trail. It ran downwards, spiraling along a steep slope. Ethan sighed again, exasperated. He unbuttoned the top of his shirt and stuck the flashlight inside, then rebuttoned it, securing it in place, and began to make his way down.
The things he did for science....
By the time he made it down the slope his palms were red and rough, his clothes torn in several places, and his legs tired. He pulled the flashlight out and began to make his way through the woods again.
The trees around him lightened, but the crystal trail was getting thicker. He was getting closer... Heart racing with anticipation, he edged forward, and within moments, a dark shape came into view....
"Oh my God."
He stopped dead, his mouth agape. The trail lead to a crystal, as he had expected, but this crystal was the size of a small fridge, glittering darkly in the moonlight streaming down upon it from overhead. The strangest part, however, was not its size. It was its shape.
Its form resembled that of a rose, with long petals spreading from around its base. Crystalline pyres were protruding from all around it, like thorns, and enormous vine-like limbs were sprouting all around it as well. They were moving.
He wanted to back away — this wasn't normal, not even the worst cases he had seen had ever been like this — but at the same time he wanted to move forward. To examine it. How many other Emotionologists could say that they had the pleasure of seeing a specimen this fascinating firsthand? But before he could even think to take a step, a voice suddenly issued from his surroundings, soft but distinct.
"Who are you?"

I was watching a fan edit of Terminator 3: Rise of the Machines called "The Coming Storm" (fantastic btw) when it hit me. The bunker at Crystal Peak that John and Kate escaped to at the end of the movie was designed by Frank Lloyd Wright.
When they first drop into the bunker, John says "These computers are 30 years old." That's when I thought. Who would be building this place that long ago? In this trash heap of a movie, judgment day takes place in 2004. So 30 years ago, would be 1974. The presidents's seal is all over that place. That would mean that the president at the time, Gerald Ford built it. Okay, cold war, yes. But would he have really cared enough to spend that money? And how long would have it taken to build. A decade? So i went trough the presidents. Kennedy for sure would of because bay of pigs. But he wouldn't have had time to approve the budget. (RIP) But Truman? Eisenhower? ABSOLUTELY! So i started looking into designers from their time periods...
Google it. Architects in the 40's and 50's. Frank Lloyd Wright is all over the place. Now look at his designs. He SPECIALIZED in organic architecture. Do you even need a definition for that? Anyways. I mean just look at the rocks built into the layout? Or these tall 30 foot ceilings carved into in an effing mountain? Or the extreme extra effort to hand design the railings? True, the railings don't exactly match his style but still, who does that? I compared a couple other architects from the 40's and 50's and there's nothing close. It has to be him.
So why are there computers from the 70's? That one is easy. A budget to build is drastically different than one to maintain and upgrade. I propose that Harry Truman, the first and only president to order a nuclear strike on it's enemies, knew that one day they would strike back. So he ordered the construction of this bunker to safeguard the leadership of the USA. There was also a budget to maintain the bunker into at least the 70's, when likely Jimmy Carter saw the light at the end of the tunnel and ordered that money to a more sensible location. Then 30 or so years later, in walks John and Kate.
TL;DR - Frank Lloyd Wright designed the bunker in the 40's, and it was maintained and updated until Jimmy Carter cancelled the project.
