Alright Nintendo Life, I've decided to organize a trip. We'll be seeking the legendary planet Magrathea, which should be somewhere in the Andromeda galaxy.
Everyone can come, but we'll need some good organization. Also, we're being sponsored by Bill's Hardware in Waltham, Massachusetts, so we don't want to let them down.
The Meeting Place
We'll be meeting in London, Great Britain, it's in the center of the world, so nobody has to travel too far to get there. For all of you who are geography illiterate, here is where Britain is:
We'll be meeting next Tuesday, but be there Monday if you wanna help with the construction of the ship. Here's the event calendar for the project, please take note of it:
What You Should Bring
On the blast-off you're need to sustain your own weight (this is so we can bring as many people as we want), so IF YOU DO NOT BRING A WATER GUN, YOU ARE NOT GETTING ON THE SPACE SHIP. Any water gun is fine as long as you can help propel the ship upwards, but super-soakers are really good. So here's the materials list:
1. Water gun (super-soaker, if you can)
2. Air in resealable bags. I recommend at least 4 bags per person.
The ones from croutons work really well.
3. Walkie talkie
4. Good space traveling music.
5. A book to read. You can also bring internet, but if you do, you have to share it with everybody. Comics are fine too.
6. Fish-bowl. MAKE SURE YOUR HEAD CAN FIT IN IT, WE'VE HAD PROBLEMS WITH THIS IN THE PAST.
7. Gum, because your ears are gonna feel weird at first, but its okay if you chew gum.
We're gonna get lift-off by all shooting our water guns downwards at the same time. If my calculations are correct, this should propel us upwards and into space.
They are hard to understand if you don't know calculus, so don't worry about it.IF YOU SHOOT UPWARDS OR ANY OTHER DIRECTION BUT DOWNWARDS YOU WILL MESS UP THE EQUATION, AND YOU WILL BE KICKED OFF THE SHIP.
After that its pretty self-explanatory. Try to hold your breath or only use 2 of your oxygen bags until we reach the next planet with oxygen. If you catch enough air in your fishbowl before lift-off, you should be fine.
Q: How do I pump my water-gun with there is no air?A: You have to do it with space if you run out of air. Space isn't as thick as air so you have to pump it more, but that's okay because we'll probably only be using it to change directions up there.
Q: What If I run out of air?A: We'll send you off in the general direction of Earth. Space has no friction, so you'll just keep going until you reach London again, and then you can have all the air you want. Try to bring enough air though, because we want this expedition to be successful.
Q: What kind of treasure are we looking for?A: Space treasure.
Q:Can I bring my pets or family?A: Yes, but they have to bring water guns too to sustain their weight during lift-off. If you insist on bringing your morbidly obese Aunt Bertha, bring two more super-soakers.
Q: What will we be doing during the actual travel?A: I will bring my Wii and will can play Brawl. Except no Pit or Ike. If you wanna play Pit or Ike, go on some other space expedition.
Okay, that's all. See you next Tuesday!
I had fun once and it was awful.

whew, found a big enough fish-bowl.
also, i have a question. i don't want to bring my morbidly obese Aunt Bertha, but what if i want to bring lz's super-morbidly obese mother along? she'll amuse us all by making lz hold her tampon-filled purse, but she's worth like two Aunt Berthas at least... so should we bring four extra super-soakers for her, or six just to be sure we'll lift off okay?
10. Posted: Wed 26th May 2010 02:55 BST
@lz:... so you're saying we should bring eight extra super-soakers to accommodate your mother, her purse, and the tampons she'll be having you hold? >:3

You don't have to clean. You just need to wear something absorbent.

@percent: we'll all have to make sure we go before we leave Earth... there's no bathrooms in space D:

Regretfully, I cannot accompany you on this journey as I have... important matters to attend to here (Really?! That's how they're writing me off?!). In my stead, I am sending my assistant. He comes equipped with a hydro cannon and should be of great use to you. I have enclosed a photo of him in this message.
Good Luck And GodspeedTwilightV (I am SO firing my agent for this...)
