Space travel: 10 Technology Innovations Needed for Deep Space Exploration

_65169606_telescopemilkyway

If you’re a “Star Trek” fan, then that opening voiceover by William Shatner probably still gives you goose bumps: “To explore strange new worlds, to seek out new life and new civilizations, to boldly go where no man has gone before.”

Enthralling as that notion may be, to most people, it probably seems like a sci-fi writer’s wishful thinking. While astronauts have ventured as far away as the Moon and, over the last few decades, have routinely orbited Earth, they’ve yet to venture to other planets in our solar system, let alone into the vast emptiness between our solar system and those of other stars. The immense distances involved — 36 million miles (57.9 million kilometers) to Mars, 21.1 trillion miles (39.9 trillion kilometers) to Proxima Centauri, the nearest star — make deep space travel seem beyond reach of even the most extreme human ingenuity. What would power spacecraft over such long distances? What would keep astronauts safe from the perils of radiation and the muscle-and-bone-wasting effects of microgravity? How would crews avoid running out of food and water? And once they arrived at their destinations, how would they even be able to send messages back to Earth? It all sounds impossible.

Or not. NASA researchers and other brains are hard at work contemplating the challenges of deep space travel and dreaming up technologies to meet those challenges. They’ve already come up with a number of ideas — solar sails to power spacecraft, super-precise, atomic-powered instruments for navigation, and laser relays for long-distance communication — that are in the early stages of development and may be ready for testing in the next few years, according to NASA. Additionally, in 2011, the Defense Advanced Research Projects Agency, the Pentagon’s research and development arm, promised to invest up to $500,000 in seed money in technologies needed for interstellar travel, according to the Los Angeles Times.

Many potential breakthroughs are still on the drawing board, and while they still have a ways to go, the fact that these inspirations come from credible scientists and engineers gives us hope that someday they’ll become a reality — and humans will roam the cosmos. Here are 10 of the most interesting technological notions.

1. SPACE SAILS nasas-nanosail-d-solar-sail-unfurled-above-earth-17-jan-2011

  1. Conventional rockets can put astronauts into orbit, but try using one to travel the enormous distances between planets and stars and you’re likely to run out of fuel. That’s why scientists have been working to develop alternative methods of propulsion and energy sources for rockets.

    One promising, albeit outlandish, idea is to equip starships with giant sails, which would capture solar energy and use it for propulsion. This would be possible because light is made up of tiny, extremely energetic particles called photons, which in some ways behave like atomic particles. When light strikes a mirrorlike surface, the photons are reflected straight back. In the process, they transmit their momentum to the surface, pushing it forward, explains the Planetary Society.

    One huge advantage of a solar sail would be that, unlike a rocket engine, it would cause a spacecraft to continually, steadily accelerate, so that the craft eventually would reach an extremely high rate of speed. One drawback of solar sails is that in order to provide sufficient force to propel a spacecraft forward, a sail would have to be many times larger than that spacecraft. Such sails might actually have to be built in space.

    2. Communication

    We all chuckled at the notion that E.T. was having trouble phoning home, but for interplanetary explorers, maintaining communication with Earth could be a major challenge. “If you can’t communicate with the ship, then you don’t know what the results are of your mission,” Andreas Tziolas, a former research fellow at NASA who now heads Project Icarus, a private-sector effort to develop interstellar technology, told the Atlantic.

    For that reason, NASA is funding a project called the Laser Communications Relay Demonstration, which would use laser beams to transfer data between spacecraft and stations on Earth at 10 to 100 times the speeds currently available. If the method proves to be feasible, astronauts on Mars could transmit data back to Earth at speeds of 100 Mbps or more, which is at least several times faster than the broadband Internet connections that the most technologically advanced ordinary Joes have in their homes. Conceivably, it would be possible to transmit a photographic image from Mars to Earth in about five minutes, compared to the 90-minute wait that scientists operating robotic rovers on the Red Planet presently must endure, according to PopSci.

    3. Navigational clocks

    504221

    If you’re going to travel in deep space, the last thing you want is to get lost along the way, crash on some strange planet, and have your robotic assistant running around wearing out its voice synthesizer, continually shouting “Danger, Will Robinson!” To avoid such a scenario, you need a really good a navigation system with a super-precise clock; this clock will be used to calculate distances.

    That’s why NASA is planning in 2015 to launch a spacecraft containing the experimental Deep Space Atomic Clock, a miniaturized, ultra-precise mercury-ion atomic clock that’s 100 times more stable than existing navigational clocks. All clocks are imprecise to some degree. But this one is accurate to within a billionth of a second over a 10-day period. This means astronauts can use it to measure frequencies, which are used to calculate distances, with much greater precision.

    4. Robotic Teams

    Mars_Science_Laboratory_Curiosity_rover

    Founding a colony on a distant planet might be a daunting task for astronauts. They’d have to land in unfamiliar, possibly rough terrain, and then immediately set about erecting dwellings and a landing/launching pad to facilitate follow-up missions — all while searching for water, air and building materials. That’s why NASA engineers, in league with Canadian and European colleagues, are at work developing robotic advance teams that would land in advance of human explorers to scope out the available resources and lay the groundwork for a settlement. On Mars or another planet, for example, rovers equipped with bulldozer blades or plows could go to work clearing and smoothing a landing spot, while others might amass rocks and other materials and process them to make a concrete runway. (Remember that the Space Shuttle’s landing facility required 250,000 cubic yards of concrete, far too much to ever be transported from Earth.) Other robots might roam the surface, drilling and testing soil samples to look for usable oxygen and/or water, according to NASA.

    5.  Simulated gravity

    p0140xss

    Watching Apollo astronauts hit golf balls fantastic distances might make microgravity look like great fun, but the truth is that it’s extremely hard on your body. In fact, scientists say that some of the biggest potential problems facing astronauts in deep space are the physiological changes caused by weightlessness. Astronauts’ muscles have a tendency to atrophy from lack of resistance, and they lose bone as well; in addition, weightlessness causes a loss of blood volume, so they feel lightheaded when they stand up. Additionally, it alters the human sense of balance, so that when space travelers return, they’ll feel as if Earth is spinning out of control beneath their feet.

    On short-term trips, astronauts have been combating such debilitating changes by using specially designed exercise equipment and by taking medications to combat bone loss. On a longer trip, however, it might make more sense to equip a ship with some sort of rotational mechanism to simulate gravity inside. Alternatively, scientists have proposed installing circular exercise tracks inside spaceships, upon which astronauts would peddle bikes in circles to simulate gravity’s effect on their muscles and bones.

    6. Keeping the astronauts alive for a long time

    141007123531-01-mars-hibernate-horizontal-large-gallery

    One of the major problems with traveling vast distances in space is that trips could take a long, long time. In a lot of science fiction movies, such as “Alien” and “Planet of the Apes,” scriptwriters get around this problem by depicting astronauts slumbering for long stretches in suspended animation, like hibernating animals. Unfortunately, slowing the human metabolism and keeping a person alive for lengthy periods in that state is easier imagined than done. Surface-induced deep hypothermia — in layman’s terms, freezing — probably isn’t a good option, for example, since ice crystals begin to form inside the cells, and then destroy them as they grow, according to Michio Kaku, author of “Physics of the Impossible.”

    But there may be other methods of maintaining a person in suspended animation without the ice. In 2006, for example, researchers at Massachusetts General Hospital in Boston slowed down the metabolism and cardiovascular systems of mice by administering small, controlled doses of hydrogen sulfide, the foul-smelling toxic gas produced by rotting eggs and sewage, and then were able to reverse the state of suspended animation afterward, according to Science Daily. In subsequent experiments, the researchers accomplished this feat even without a reduction in body temperature.

    7. Force fields

    maxresdefault

    Force fields are a staple of science fiction, in which they’re usually used to protect a spaceship or space station from attackers. In “Star Wars,” for example, the Death Star on which Darth Vader did his heavy breathing was protected by such a shield. But in actual deep space travel, scientists are looking to force fields to solve another problem — how to protect astronauts’ bodily cells from the continual radiation bombardment in space that might cause them to develop cancers and other health problems.

    For the most part, dangerous radiation in space comes from electrically charged particles: high-speed electrons and protons put out by the Sun, and huge, positively charged atomic nuclei put out by distant supernovas. Hypothetically, if a spaceship were equipped with a powerful electrical field that had the same charge as the incoming radiation, it might be able to deflect that radiation. Unlike the force fields in movies, however, a practical force field might involve some visible objects. In one scheme developed by NASA scientists in the mid-2000s, spheres made of a thin, strong material and coated with a very thin layer of a conductor such as gold would be floated at low altitude over a base camp on another planet and then charged with electricity, according to NASA. Portable versions of the same device could be used on spaceships and rover vehicles.

    8.  Warp speed

    maxresdefault

    In “Star Trek,” the Starship Enterprise travels enormous distances in weeks and months, even visiting other galaxies — a feat that would be impossible at the speeds that spacecraft currently travel. The Enterprise does this by using warp drive, in which the spacecraft basically takes shortcuts through holes caused by distortions of space-time. (This is a tricky concept to grasp; imagine space and time as a giant tablecloth, one that you can stretch, twist and poke pathways through.)

    This might seem like a totally goofy, ridiculous idea, but physicists actually have been contemplating it since at least the 1920s. In 1994, theoretical physicist and Trekkie Miguel Alcubierre actually published a scientific paper showing that a warp drive could be created without contradicting Einsteinian physics, which would seem to dictate that faster-than-light travel is impossible. According to Alcubierre, it would be possible to get around this limitation if a spacecraft used energy to create a sort of bubble around it, which would cause space-time to expand behind it and contract in the direction that the spacecraft wanted to go. One drawback of this speculative technology is that it would require enormous amounts of energy.

    9.  Grow food

    space

    Like everybody else, astronauts in deep space would need to eat, and finding room inside a spacecraft to bring along the vast quantities of supplies needed to sustain them on trips lasting multiple years would be a major headache. That’s why NASA scientists are looking for ways for astronauts to grow their own food while en route to other planets, without using soil or large amounts of water.

    Aeroponic crops would be grown from special seeds suspended in the air in plastic frames, instead of being planted and fertilized with chemicals. Research has shown that aeroponically grown plants actually absorb more minerals and vitamins than ones grown in the ground, making them potentially more nutritious, according to NASA. But man does not live by broccoli alone, so scientists will have to come up with a way to provide a good protein source as well. Perhaps another promising technology is test-tube meat, grown in strips from stem cells in a laboratory. A Dutch professor recently announced that he had grown small strips of muscle tissue from a pig’s stem cells, which could eventually lead to artificial, cruelty-free artificial beef, pork, chicken or lamb.

    10. Air and water

    voc_space_iss_1_pic_large_anderson_clayton_bubble_12april2010

    Another thing that astronauts will need in space is supplies of both breathable air and drinkable water, and obviously they can’t haul Earth behind them to provide a continuously refreshed supply. That’s why NASA scientists are working to develop air recovery systems that will filter, extract and restore to a ship’s internal atmosphere as much oxygen as possible. By 2016, researchers expect to have the ability to recover as much as 75 percent of the oxygen from the carbon dioxide that astronauts breathe out, and by 2019, they hope to achieve 100 percent recovery, according to Space.com.

    Additionally, great strides are being made in water recycling in space. The International Space Station, for example, is now equipped with a special system that recycles both urine and waste water from washing. It rotates them in a special distillation unit that compensates for the absence of gravity and separates the actual water from waste materials, microorganisms and other contaminants, according to Water-Technology.net .

 

(Crazy) Russian scientist says he is stronger and healthier after injecting himself with ‘eternal life’ bacteria

 

The crazy russian scientist
The crazy russian scientist

If injecting yourself with 3.5 million-year-old bacteria could keep you looking like you where in your 20s and stayed healthy all your life, would you do it? (The side effects are ofc. Unknown)

The Russian scientist Anatoli Brouchkov, head of the Geocryology Department at Moscow State University, is looking for the key to eternal youth.

He has therefore chosen to become a human guinea pig for some bacteria that could perhaps hold the key to longevity.

“We have to work out how this bacteria prevents ageing. I think that is the way this science should develop. What is keeping that mechanism alive? And how can we use it for our own benefits?”

Anatoli Brouchkov

The bacteria, named Bacillus F, is one badass motherf****r because it has remained alive in the permafrost for over 3 million years.

Scientists have tested it on rats and human blood cells, but this wasn’t enough for Anatoli Brouchkov, who decided to inject himself with the bacteria.

“I started to work longer hourd, I’ve never felt sick for the last two years,” he said. “After successful experiments on mice and bugs, I thought it would be interesting to try the inactivated bacterial culture,” he told The Siberian Times.

“Besides, the permafrost is thawing, and I guess these bacteria get into the environment, into the water, so the local population, the Yakut people, in fact, for a long time are getting these cells with water, and even seem to live longer than some other nations. So there was no danger for me.”

It’s not a proper science experiment, but Anatoli Brouchkov says that the bacteria seems to have had some positive effect on him.

“It wasn’t quite a scientific experiment, so I cannot professionally describe the effects. But it was quite clear for me that I did not catch flu for two years. Perhaps there were some side-effects, but there should be some special medical equipment to spot them. Of course, such experiments need to be conducted in clinic, with the special equipment and statistics. Then we could say clearly about all the effects.”

Mr. Brouchkov said: We have to work out how this bacteria prevents ageing. I think that is the way this science should develop. What is keeping that mechanism alive? And how can we use it for our own benefits?”

The russian sleep experiment

screen-shot-2015-02-18-at-4-59-49-pm-the-russian-sleep-experiment-is-the-freakiest-story-ever-told-but-is-it-true-png-267308

Russian researchers in the 1940s kept five people awake for fifteen days using an experimental gas based stimulant. They were kept in a sealed environment to carefully monitor their oxygen intake so the gas didn’t kill them, since it was toxic in high concentrations. This was before closed circuit cameras so they had only microphones and 5 inch thick glass porthole sized windows into the chamber to monitor them. The chamber was stocked with books, cots to sleep on but no bedding, running water and toilet, and enough dried food to last all five for over a month.

 

The test subjects were political prisoners deemed enemies of the state during World War II.

 

Everything was fine for the first five days; the subjects hardly complained having been promised that they would be freed if they submitted to the test and did not sleep for 30 days. Their conversations and activities were monitored and it was noted that they continued to talk about increasingly traumatic incidents in their past, and the general tone of their conversations took on a darker aspect after the 4 day mark.

the_russian_sleep_experiment_creepypasta_by_chrisozfulton-d853hij

After five days they started to complain about the circumstances and events that lead them to where they were and started to demonstrate severe paranoia. They stopped talking to each other and began alternately whispering to the microphones and one way mirrored portholes. Oddly they all seemed to think they could win the trust of the experimenters by turning over their comrades, the other subjects in captivity with them. At first the researchers suspected this was an effect of the gas itself…

 

After nine days the first of them started screaming. He ran the length of the chamber repeatedly yelling at the top of his lungs for 3 hours straight, he continued attempting to scream but was only able to produce occasional squeaks. The researchers postulated that he had physically torn his vocal cords. The most surprising thing about this behavior is how the other captives reacted to it… or rather didn’t react to it. They continued whispering to the microphones until the second of the captives started to scream. The 2 non-screaming captives took the books apart, smeared page after page with their own feces and pasted them calmly over the glass portholes. The screaming promptly stopped.

 

So did the whispering to the microphones.

 

After 3 more days passed. The researchers checked the microphones hourly to make sure they were working, since they thought it impossible that no sound could be coming with 5 people inside. The oxygen consumption in the chamber indicated that all 5 must still be alive. In fact it was the amount of oxygen 5 people would consume at a very heavy level of strenuous exercise. On the morning of the 14th day the researchers did something they said they would not do to get a reaction from the captives, they used the intercom inside the chamber, hoping to provoke any response from the captives they were afraid were either dead or vegetables.

rse_by_imaginarymassacre-d5qn482

They announced: “We are opening the chamber to test the microphones; step away from the door and lie flat on the floor or you will be shot. Compliance will earn one of you your immediate freedom.”

 

To their surprise they heard a single phrase in a calm voice response: “We no longer want to be freed.”

 

Debate broke out among the researchers and the military forces funding the research. Unable to provoke any more response using the intercom it was finally decided to open the chamber at midnight on the fifteenth day.

 

The chamber was flushed of the stimulant gas and filled with fresh air and immediately voices from the microphones began to object. 3 different voices began begging, as if pleading for the life of loved ones to turn the gas back on. The chamber was opened and soldiers sent in to retrieve the test subjects. They began to scream louder than ever, and so did the soldiers when they saw what was inside. Four of the five subjects were still alive, although no one could rightly call the state that any of them in ‘life.’

the-dangers-of-slender-man-and-the-internet-stories-that-are-so-much-worse-96010

The food rations past day 5 had not been so much as touched. There were chunks of meat from the dead test subject’s thighs and chest stuffed into the drain in the center of the chamber, blocking the drain and allowing 4 inches of water to accumulate on the floor. Precisely how much of the water on the floor was actually blood was never determined. All four ‘surviving’ test subjects also had large portions of muscle and skin torn away from their bodies. The destruction of flesh and exposed bone on their finger tips indicated that the wounds were inflicted by hand, not with teeth as the researchers initially thought. Closer examination of the position and angles of the wounds indicated that most if not all of them were self-inflicted.

 

The abdominal organs below the ribcage of all four test subjects had been removed. While the heart, lungs and diaphragm remained in place, the skin and most of the muscles attached to the ribs had been ripped off, exposing the lungs through the ribcage. All the blood vessels and organs remained intact, they had just been taken out and laid on the floor, fanning out around the eviscerated but still living bodies of the subjects. The digestive tract of all four could be seen to be working, digesting food. It quickly became apparent that what they were digesting was their own flesh that they had ripped off and eaten over the course of days.

maxresdefault-1

Most of the soldiers were Russian special operatives at the facility, but still many refused to return to the chamber to remove the test subjects. They continued to scream to be left in the chamber and alternately begged and demanded that the gas be turned back on, lest they fall asleep…

 

To everyone’s surprise the test subjects put up a fierce fight in the process of being removed from the chamber. One of the Russian soldiers died from having his throat ripped out, another was gravely injured by having his testicles ripped off and an artery in his leg severed by one of the subject’s teeth. Another 5 of the soldiers lost their lives if you count ones that committed suicide in the weeks following the incident.

 

In the struggle one of the four living subjects had his spleen ruptured and he bled out almost immediately. The medical researchers attempted to sedate him but this proved impossible. He was injected with more than ten times the human dose of a morphine derivative and still fought like a cornered animal, breaking the ribs and arm of one doctor. When heart was seen to beat for a full two minutes after he had bled out to the point there was more air in his vascular system than blood. Even after it stopped he continued to scream and flail for another 3 minutes, struggling to attack anyone in reach and just repeating the word “MORE” over and over, weaker and weaker, until he finally fell silent.

 

The surviving three test subjects were heavily restrained and moved to a medical facility, the two with intact vocal cords continuously begging for the gas demanding to be kept awake…

carl-mydans-doctor-tending-to-casualties-in-field-hospital-during-russian-finnish-war

The most injured of the three was taken to the only surgical operating room that the facility had. In the process of preparing the subject to have his organs placed back within his body it was found that he was effectively immune to the sedative they had given him to prepare him for the surgery. He fought furiously against his restraints when the anesthetic gas was brought out to put him under. He managed to tear most of the way through a 4 inch wide leather strap on one wrist, even through the weight of a 200 pound soldier holding that wrist as well. It took only a little more anesthetic than normal to put him under, and the instant his eyelids fluttered and closed, his heart stopped. In the autopsy of the test subject that died on the operating table it was found that his blood had triple the normal level of oxygen. His muscles that were still attached to his skeleton were badly torn and he had broken 9 bones in his struggle to not be subdued. Most of them were from the force his own muscles had exerted on them.

 

The second survivor had been the first of the group of five to start screaming. His vocal cords destroyed he was unable to beg or object to surgery, and he only reacted by shaking his head violently in disapproval when the anesthetic gas was brought near him. He shook his head yes when someone suggested, reluctantly, they try the surgery without anesthetic, and did not react for the entire 6 hour procedure of replacing his abdominal organs and attempting to cover them with what remained of his skin. The surgeon presiding stated repeatedly that it should be medically possible for the patient to still be alive. One terrified nurse assisting the surgery stated that she had seen the patients mouth curl into a smile several times, whenever his eyes met hers.

 

When the surgery ended the subject looked at the surgeon and began to wheeze loudly, attempting to talk while struggling. Assuming this must be something of drastic importance the surgeon had a pen and pad fetched so the patient could write his message. It was simple. “Keep cutting.”

The other two test subjects were given the same surgery, both without anesthetic as well. Although they had to be injected with a paralytic for the duration of the operation. The surgeon found it impossible to perform the operation while the patients laughed continuously. Once paralyzed the subjects could only follow the attending researchers with their eyes. The paralytic cleared their system in an 9abnormally short period of time and they were soon trying to escape their bonds. The moment they could speak they were again asking for the stimulant gas. The researchers tried asking why they had injured themselves, why they had ripped out their own guts and why they wanted to be given the gas agaiOnly one response was given: “I must remain awake.”

 

All three subject’s restraints were reinforced and they were placed back into the chamber awaiting determination as to what should be done with them. The researchers, facing the wrath of their military ‘benefactors’ for having failed the stated goals of their project considered euthanizing the surviving subjects. The commanding officer, an ex-KGB instead saw potential, and wanted to see what would happen if they were put back on the gas. The researchers strongly objected, but were overruled.

 

In preparation for being sealed in the chamber again the subjects were connected to an EEG monitor and had their restraints padded for long term confinement. To everyone’s surprise all three stopped struggling the moment it was let slip that they were going back on the gas. It was obvious that at this point all three were putting up a great struggle to stay awake. One of subjects that could speak was humming loudly and continuously; the mute subject was straining his legs against the leather bonds with all his might, first left, then right, then left again for something to focus on. The remaining subject was holding his head off his pillow and blinking rapidly. Having been the first to be wired for EEG most of the researchers were monitoring his brain waves in surprise. They were normal most of the time but sometimes flat lined inexplicably. It looked as if he were repeatedly suffering brain death, before returning to normal. As they focused on paper scrolling out of the brainwave monitor only one nurse saw his eyes slip shut at the same moment his head hit the pillow. His brainwaves immediately changed to that of deep sleep, then flatlined for the last time as his heart simultaneously stopped.

 

The only remaining subject that could speak started screaming to be sealed in now. His brainwaves showed the same flatlines as one who had just died from falling asleep. The commander gave the order to seal the chamber with both subjects inside, as well as 3 researchers. One of the named three immediately drew his gun and shot the commander point blank between the eyes, then turned the gun on the mute subject and blew his brains out as well.

 

He pointed his gun at the remaining subject, still restrained to a bed as the remaining members of the medical and research team fled the room. “I won’t be locked in here with these things! Not with you!” he screamed at the man strapped to the table. “WHAT ARE YOU?” he demanded. “I must know!”

The subject smiled.

 

“Have you forgotten so easily?” The subject asked. “We are you. We are the madness that lurks within you all, begging to be free at every moment in your deepest animal mind. We are what you hide from in your beds every night. We are what you sedate into silence and paralysis when you go to the nocturnal haven where we cannot tread.”

 

The researcher paused. Then aimed at the subject’s heart and fired. The EEG flatlined as the subject weakly choked out, “So… nearly… free…”

so.. what do you guys think? We all know the russians has done som really crazy shit over the years… but is this true ore false? Good luck sleeping tonight! 

 

 

 

 

 

Some Of The Weirdest Laws In America

America is a strange country, at least acording to these hillarious laws! 

 

Alaska

Clearly Alaska used to throw some sick parties in the woods, because the state now has a law on the books that bars you from giving a moose a beer.

 

Arizona

Even though they’d love it, you can’t feed pigs garbage unless you have a special permit. One that needs to be renewed each year.

 

California

It’s illegal to eat frogs.. this might be hard for french tourists, but no problem for me.

 

Georgia

Using profane language to a person under 14 in person or by telephone is considered disorderly conduct in Georgia. But if that kid’s 15 or older, say whatever the f*** you want.

 

Indiana

It’s illegal to catch fish with your bare hands in Indiana. I think Indiana has a completely unrealistic view of my fishing skills…

 

Illinois

Taking a snooze in a cheese factory, bake shop, confectionery, or creamery is illegal under Illinois’ Sanitary Food Preparation Act. Should you want to “netflix and chill” with that Gouda in the privacy of your own home though, go right ahead.

Redditing: Want to mess with your family when you die?

So, we are all going to die, and when that day comes every (wo)man would like to leave a legacy.

So why not realy mess with your family? Someone on Reddit wanted to know “Whats a WTF item to leave in a safe, to mess with you’re family’s heads when you die?”

And as usual, Reddit delivers!

What about a ledger?

A fake memoir detailing how you had another family and basically an entire “double life”. ∼CreamOfPotato

As a comment somone suggested

[+] Pick out particularly memorable dates for things that actually happened in your real family and write about it as though you had some mundane errand to run.

Child’s birth: “There was an engagement I had to attend, it was really more of a courtesy than anything as I didn’t want to be there, and saw no reason as to why I should’ve gone in the first place, in any case, it was for that reason that I missed family game night, which up until then we had held every week on Wednesday. It was Pictionary night… Sometimes I still long for the feeling of a golf pencil in my hand. Yearn to be back at that table, with lines scribbled furiously, spiraling as uncontrollably as the Milky Way’s zenith, while the sands of time slip past our fingers through the hourglass, easing us closer to our imminent doom in a crash course with Andromeda. What creation would I have wrought?” ∼standerj

The Erotic (?)way

In a walk in safe, 30 rolls of toilet paper, bulk boxes of lotion, and in the center a chair with a copy of playboy that has the faces of all of the males in my family pasted onto the models.  ∼Thrackerz0d

 

The Some what dark

A diary that has normal stuff in it, but also says things like, “I saw a murder today. It filled me with peace. I hope to bear witness to another one” Dated months later, “another murder today. exciting to watch.” Days later, “Planning a murder of my own. Illegal but I find myself being drawn to it. Will be worth it if I don’t get caught”. Then, “I did it. My very own murder!” Finally, “too good to last. All I have left are the photos. I kept a trophy.” folded in the diary is a map with an X on it. Buried in the location is a trophy for whatever you want (karate. bowling. whatever) with your own name written on tape in the front and a photo album containing pictures of you with a flock (murder) of crows surrounded by hearts. ∼AfroClam

The hard one

Easy. A copy of pokemon green and a gameboy.

Twist: every box is full, and every pokemon is a level 13 magikarp. Each one has a random series of numbers and letters as a name.

Twisty twist: the names, when read in order per their in-box order, give coordinates and box numbers for safe deposit boxes. The letters are included as part of VINs for the vehicles to which the keys contained in the safe deposit boxes belong.

Even twister twist: inside the glove boxes of these cars are contained notes, leaving each person participating in the search a $13 gift card to blockbuster.

Or a stack of AOL online subscription cds.  ∼dinklebergs_revenge

A note Referencing a note to a fictional friend. “Be sure to ask Jimmy about the stash of money I had kept secret from the IRS. Jimmy is to get an even share of that money. Each of the nieces/nephews is only to receive $20,000. The other family members and Jimmy to receive the lions share of stash evenly divided.” Let the treasure hunt begin. ∼Glassman59
