Is Megalodon, The Monster Shark, still alive?

   Megalodon was an ancient shark during the time of the dinosaurs. Its average length was about 70 to 90 ft wide. It had 6 rows of monster teeth and had a dorsal fin longer than most humans. It was the King of the Seas, the best hunter that had ever lived in the ocean. Many people believe that it is still hunting in the oceans of the Earth, but many scientists have proved theories wrong. It was proved that sharks behave sluggish in cold waters and are active in warm waters. Also the cold temperatures improves the performance of the sharks metabolism, making it have to hunt more animals. Because of tectonic plates, the continents blocked out the migration route of whales, keeping the whales on one side and Megalodon on the other. Now, they had to hunt more, in sluggish behavior, when their primary food source was cut off. The Ice Age had brought an end to the Monster hunter.

My Opinion

  Of course its real!!!! Megalodon was a deep sea hunter, meaning it lived down to depths of 6,000 ft. A research team had set a trap to tag the giant monster. They had succeeded in this task and had monitored it for only minutes. At an unspeakable and unmatched rate, the monster shark had dived down deep into the ocean faster than any marine life possible. The tag had lost its transmission at 6,524ft below sea level. No marine animal had ever dived down that deep that fast. No other shark known has behavior to go down that deep. Blue Sharks are the closest, going down to about 4,000ft.

Top 10 Megalodon Sightings

1 Dorsal fin of 6 ft. This photograph was taken from atleast 1,000 feet away. The shark is attacking a whale.


2. A whale was bitten in half. Only Megalodon is known to take bites that big and from that angle.

3. As you can see, Megalodon was very big.

4. Megalodon was the biggest of all sharks, and this shows proves just that.

5. Tooth of the Great White on the left, the Megalodon tooth on the right. See the difference?

6. The Jaw of the Megalodon was very Massive. It could eat a baby whale in one bite.

7. Megalodon was very long. Longer than a city bus!

8. This is the shark with the closest length to the Megalodon.
9. Megalodon was longer than the King of Dinosaurs, Tyrannosaurus Rex.

10. Megalodon was a very ruthless killer, and often killed prey from under.


Megalodon was a very ruthless killer and perhaps the largest hunter in the ocean. It was nearly 100 ft long and had 6 rows of long and sharp teeth. If Megalodon was alive today, and we had a skeleton of it, imagine a freight train with 6 rows of knives sticking out of it. That's a very close description of this beast and exactly how it should be imagined. The MONSTER SHARK LIVES!!!!

Is Bigfoot Real? 

"Bigfoot is the name given to a cryptid ape- or hominid-like creature that some people believe inhabits forests, mainly in the Pacific Northwest region of North America. Bigfoot is usually described as a large, hairy, bipedal humanoid." There are many shows that are based off of Bigfoot or have people look for him to find evidence of its existence. There are many people who believe in his existence, but there is no clear evidence of his existence. Many pictures or sightings have been proved fake, some unexplainable, and others not even pictures of the right thing.The research goes on, but you never know what new evidence people can find.

My Opinion

Bigfoot is FAKE. All the "pictures" of it are FAKE. Anyone who has "footage" of him are FAKE. Sorry I'm not sorry. There is just no clear evidence of his existence. Most pictures are mistaken for gorillas, and other are just people dressed in Halloween costumes. If there was a good, clear picture or footage of the beast, then I would change my mind.

Top 10 Bigfoot Sightings

1. Bigfoot sighted in the forest alongside a road.


2. Bigfoot hunting Bears


3. Two Bigfoots sighted in the woods. Could be Gorillas or large Bears.


4.Bigfoot lurking in the woods. Could be a man in a suit.


5.This picture is definitely fake. It looks like a drawing.


6. This Could be a bear, or maybe even a gorilla.


7.That's just CREEPY. Probably a overly hairy kid?


8. This is definitely from a movie. That can't be real.


9. This just SCREAMS fake to me.


10. I'm going to guess that is a bear. If it is that is the weirdest looking bear I have ever seen.



  So is Bigfoot real? There isn't any clear evidence of its existence. No one has really proved that it is real. Many shows research and set traps for this beast, but it was never caught.


So, what do you think? Is Bigfoot real? Post in the comment section about your opinion and the proof you have of its existence.

Is Technology Messing With Your Brain???

  Next time you take a walk, are in a train, at the airport, or anywhere, pay attention. Besides an old lady and an impatient customer, chances are everyone is hunched over some type of electronic device. The average American teenager has at-least 3 or 4 electronic gadgets. Technology makes everything easier. Using Google you can find LeBron James's stats in the game last night against the Chicago Bulls. With You tube you can watch PewDiePie, BajanCanadian, Skydoesminecraft, Vanoss gaming, or BestInSlot. With Wikipedia you can learn about the Civil War or Vampires.  You can use Facebook to contact friends that are on the other side of the world. Technology makes life easier and more efficient. But is it controlling your life? Is it messing your brain? Let's find out!!!

  I'm not saying that everyone is absolutely obsesses over technology or is an obese hunchback afraid of daylight, but technology is consuming or time and attention. Technology may be efficient, but it comes with a price tag. Technology is messing with your body and brain by crippling your health, diminish your attention span, and screw up your brain. 

  Every hour you spend playing Minecraft or texting your friend could be spent playing basketball or soccer, or doing something active. Scientists believe that technology can contribute to obesity. A study from the University of South Carolina Hill (2012) showed that physical activity in the US is decreasing by the constant use of electronic devices. Because of the efficiency, nothing really requires much "effort." Researchers predict that by 2030, Americans will occupy an electronic device for 42 hours a week. But it doesn't stop there. Obesity can lead up to Type 2 Diabetes and Heart problems.
  Research also showed that 73 million people in the US are obese. Scientists believe that above all reasons for chubbiness, low physical activity, Over use of technology, and fatty foods are the most accurate.

  Are you one of those people who watches TV while listening to music, doing homework, and chatting with your friends on Facebook? If you are and your under 16 yrs of age, you are in danger!! Experts say that with multitasking, your brain frequently switches from each thing that your doing. This causes your brain to pick this up in everything you do. It will cause you to lose focus on everything you do. Experts say this is a very terrible thing for a young, growing brain because it causes you to lose focus on school. During your basketball or soccer game, one moment your thinking about stealing the ball, and the next moment you're thinking about that time when you ate won the spelling bee. While your taking a test you might be thinking about what the square root of 64 is and then after you're thinking about the time you ate 14 pizza slices. Even though it may not be that bad, it still has an affect on your brain. 

  The last reason why tooooooooo much technology is bad for your brain is because it contributes to memory loss. A technology overload can affect the brain's ability to store information. A recent study by the journal  Pediatrics  has shown that kids that play video games after they have studied vocab words, they did poorly on the test. With the constant technology intake, the brain has no chance to cool down, which is very important to the brain. 

  Now you see what technology can do to you. It cripples your health, lowers your attention span, and contributes to memory loss. Technology is in our everyday life, but it's a bad thing to have too much of it. An obsession is really bad for your health and can cause you major problems. Technology may be efficient, but now you know the evil side of it. BE CAREFUL.


Next time you take a walk in a big city, or in a very busy place, record the number of people you see on technology, the number of people who are obese, and the amount of people who are not any of these. Post your results in the comment section.

What Killed the Dinosaurs?

What Killed the Dinosaurs?


Dinosaurs lived during the Mesozoic era which began 245 million years ago. It lasted for about 180 million years. It was also known by the Age of the Reptiles. The era was divided by three eras. The Triassic, Jurassic, and the Cretaceous. The Triassic period was when all the continents on Earth were still connected. The super continent was called Pangaea. During the Triassic period(245 - 208 million years ago), Pangaea started breaking apart. Many reptiles, frogs, turtles, and crocodiles existed during it, but the dinosaurs didn't appear until the late Triassic. The first dinosaurs were lightly built, small dinosaurs. The first mammals formed during the Triassic period. The period ended with MASS EXTINCTION. During the extinction, wiped out entire order of plants and animals. But some still survived, which brings us to the Jurassic period. The Jurassic period started 208 million years ago and ended 146 million years ago. This was when the more larger dinosaurs started to form. This was period was known as the flourishing period of the dinosaurs. Birdlike dinosaurs first appeared during the Jurassic. But extinction also brought an end to the Jurassic, but it wasn't as large as the Triassic. At the end of the Jurassic, the Cretaceous period had began(146 to 65 million years ago). Pangaea had started breaking down into smaller pieces and had partially spread apart. Wide varieties of dinosaurs roamed and mammals had began to flourish. Birds had appeared and had spread all over the globe. But, again major extinction had struck the dinosaurs. The second largest extinction of all time brought an end to the age of the Reptiles, and the start of the age of the Mammals. But, extinction of the dinosaur species had brought an end to all three periods. But what had caused it? This question continues to rack the minds of all archaeologists around the globe.

   Archaeologists have many ideas of what had brought an end to the age of the dinosaurs. The most popular theory is the Asteroid theory. Many people think that a large asteroid had collided with Earth and a huge cloud of dust had blocked out the sun. Because many animals and plants need sunlight to survive, the change in climate had impacted the dinosaurs and had killed them.

  Another theory is Volcanic activity. Scientists believe that volcanoes had pumped so much ash into the air that it had blocked out the sun. Again, because of the sudden climate change, dinosaurs couldn't adapt fast enough and had become extinct.

  Some scientists believe that an small ice age had happened at the end of the Cretaceous. The sudden drop in temperature had negatively impacted the dinosaurs and had caused them extinction.

  My Opinion

Dinosaurs were abducted by aliens. Only reasonable explanation for the "extinction" of them. Aliens had taken them and possibly could have experimented on them. Fossils? While the aliens were taking the dinosaurs, the ones who either weren't taken, or "fought back" had been wiped out. This is my opinion.

Top 5 Dinosaur Extinction Theories

1. Asteroid Theory - Giant asteroid had collided with Earth and raised a cloud of dust and debris. The sun could not shine through so the dinosaurs and plants died.                                     


2. Volcanic Theory - Volcanoes puffed out so much smoke and ash, it blocked out the sun. The dinosaurs and plants did not have any sunlight so they died.

3. Ice Age Theory - A sudden ice age had killed the dinosaurs because of the sudden temperature type. 


4. Disease - A deadly disease had spread from dinosaur to dinosaur. When a dinosaur died, a scavenger had taken the disease by eating the meat of the dead dinosaur.


5.  Food Chain Imbalance - Herbivores ate plants and Carnivores ate meat. If the plants died out, the herbivores would die, and the carnivores would also die.


Top 5 Carnivores

1. Spinosaurus -

Spinosaurus was the biggest of all the carnivorous dinosaurs, larger than Tyrannosaurus and Giganotosaurus. It lived during the middle of the Cretaceous Period about 112 million to 97 million years ago, roaming the swamps of North Africa.



2. Giganotosaurus was one of the largest meat-eating dinosaurs. It roamed the swamp lands of South America at the end of the Mesozoic Era, about 97 million years ago.


3. Tyrannosaurus Rex - 

Tyrannosaurus rex was a fierce carnivore. Scientists believe this powerful predator could eat up to 500 pounds (230 kilograms) of meat in one bite.


4. Carcharodontosaurus -

 Carcharodontosaurus was a carnivore, with enormous jaws and long, serrated teeth up to eight inches long.


5.  Carnotaurus -

Carnotaurus was a large predatory dinosaur that lived in South America during the Late Cretaceous Period. They had very small hands as well as horns above their eyes, and a short snout


Spinosaurus was the biggest of all the carnivorous dinosaurs, larger than Tyrannosaurus and Giganotosaurus. It lived during the middle of the Cretaceous Period about 112 million to 97 million years ago, roaming the swamps of North Africa.


There are many theories on how dinosaurs became extinct, many of them are actually true and are possible. I think that aliens abducted some and wiped out the rest. But of course, no one else seems to think that. Disease, Asteroid, Volcanoes, and Ice Age are the most common and popular explanations. Even though scientists aren't sure exactly what killed dinosaurs, they have many possible theories.
