Review: Pokemon Go!

Hi guys! Sorry there hasn't been many posts put on here lately. So, I decided to post today about a new app, called "Pokemon Go!"

Pokemon Go, is a game where you go out, and catch your very own Pokemon! Your goal is to try to get all the Pokemon into your Pokedex. And to help you, in some places there are things called Pokestops. All you have to do is tap on it and spin the picture. 

You are also trying to get into things called Gyms where your Pokemon battle. You need to be at least level 5 to do this and you also need to be on a team.
There are 3 different teams. Team Instinct, Team Mystic, and Team Valor.

So, you are  trying to get the Gym to your color team. For example, since I'm on Team Valor, I am trying to get my gym red.

So, I hope you all play this game if you aren't already. It's a really fun game that gets you exercising. Bye! ~Cupcake :D

Review: Exploding Kittens (App)

Hi! I am posting in the morning! So, this post may seem very similar from yesterday's post about Exploding Kittens the card game! Today's is about Exploding Kittens the app! 
It's kinda the same but also different. In this, if you know the Exploding Kitten is on the top, there are a few different cards to use. For example: The DRAW FROM THE BOTTOM let's you draw from the bottom, but be careful, make sure you have a DEFUSE. You can still SHUFFLE and SKIP. A new way that it has is the SLAP card. With this card you can make someone else do your turn as well as DOUBLE SLAP.
This version could be a little more fun though. There are different card decks! One of the is called Party Deck. The Party Deck has about 4 new cards in it. Like a TRIPLE SLAP, KITTY CAT BUTT BUTT, KITTY DIARREHEA, and SEE THE FUTURE (x1 and x5)
Okay. So these names are pretty weird. With KITTY CAT BUTT BUTT, you choose a person to have their cards be blinded. With KITTY DIARREHEA you can make someone's card unusable. And SEE THE FUTURE allows you to peek at the top cards.
There is also one more deck. The Betrayal Deck. In this deck it has 4 new cards as well. In this deck it has a FAKE SHUFFLE which is just a fake shuffle. The KITTEN ROLL CALL makes all the Exploding Kittens be on the top. The ALTER THE FUTURE lets you change the top cards. And Finally, the SELF SLAP allows you to let yourself take multiple turns in a row.
That's all for now! Good Bye!! ~Cupcake :D

Review: Exploding Kittens (Card Game)

Hello all you peeps in the world of interest! You have found this post. This post is about the card game, Exploding Kittens. I got the game Exploding Kittens as a Christmas present. I really enjoy playing this with the crew.
Image result for exploding kittensExploding Kittens is a strategy card game. It involves a lot of strategy. Your goal is to try not to die.... (to try not to get the Exploding Kitten) And to do this.. you will need some strategy. For example: If it's on the top, you could use a SKIP or a SHUFFLE. With the SKIP card, you don't need to draw. With the SHUFFLE you can shuffle the deck. The safest one to play would be a SKIP...
This game is also very cute :3 the cards are so adorable... SO BEWAREEEEEEE
If you enjoy Kittens or fun games.... I would recommend Exploding Kittens. 
If I were to rate it, it would be a 9.99/10


I would recommend this game to all y'all! Well.... see ya' later!!      ~ Cupcake :D

Optical Illusions and Brain Teasers

Hi! Sorry I haven't posted since the 5th....
Today, I'm gonna be posting some brain teasers and visual illusions from http://brainden.com/



There are three switches downstairs. Each corresponds to one of the three light bulbs in the attic. You can turn the switches on and off and leave them in any position.
How would you identify which switch corresponds to which light bulb, if you are only allowed one trip upstairs?

Keep the first bulb switched on for a few minutes. It gets warm, right? So all you have to do then is ... switch it off, switch another one on, walk into the room with bulbs, touch them and tell which one was switched on as the first one (the warm one) and the others can be easily identified :-)

Your last good ping-pong ball fell down into a narrow metal pipe imbedded in concrete one foot deep.
How can you get it out undamaged, if all the tools you have are your tennis paddle, your shoe-laces, and your plastic water bottle, which does not fit into the pipe?

All the tools are random things that are not going to help you. All you have to do is pour some water into the pipe so that the ball swims up on the surface. And if you say that you don't have any water, then think about what you drank today and if you can use that somehow :-)

---------------------------------------------------------------------------------

This logic puzzle was published in Martin Gardner's column in the Scientific American. You are in a room with no metal objects except for two iron rods. Only one of them is a magnet.
How can you identify which one is a magnet?

You can hang the iron rods on a string and watch which one turns to the north (or hang just one rod).
Gardner gives one more solution: take one rod and touch with its end the middle of the second rod. If they get closer, then you have a magnet in your hand.
The real magnet will have a magnetic field at its poles, but not at its center. So as previously mentioned, if you take the iron bar and touch its tip to the magnet's center, the iron bar will not be attracted. This is assuming that the magnet's poles are at its ends. If the poles run through the length of the magnet, then it would be much harder to use this method.
In that case, rotate one rod around its axis while holding an end of the other to its middle. If the rotating rod is the magnet, the force will fluctuate as the rod rotates. If the rotating rod is not magnetic, the force is constant (provided you can keep their positions steady).

A Petri dish hosts a healthy colony of bacteria. Once a minute every bacterium divides into two. The colony was founded by a single cell at noon. At exactly 12:43 (43 minutes later) the Petri dish was half full.
At what time will the dish be full?

The dish will be full at 12:44.

An Arab sheikh tells his two sons to race their camels to a distant city to see who will inherit his fortune. The one whose camel is slower wins. After wandering aimlessly for days, the brothers ask a wise man for guidance. Upon receiving the advice, they jump on the camels and race to the city as fast as they can.
What did the wise man say to them?

The wise man told them to switch camels.

I hope you enjoyed these brain teasers!! Now time for some optical illusions!

Can you find both? Rabbit is looking to the right and duck to the left

This is a bistable illusion where you can see movement both clockwise and counterclockwise. It is NOT a test to determine which hemisphere is dominant

Stare at the red dot on the girl's nose for 30 seconds. Then look at the ceiling (or any white surface) and blink really quickly a few times. You will be amazed to see a colorful girl.
Girl Afterimage



Surface color of both A and B parts is identical. Just use a finger to cover the place where both parts meet and you'll see.
Identical Colors



Both green lines have the same length. This Ponzo illusion uses the fact that human brain interpretes the image with perspective, however, it's just a simple 2D image.
