Silkroad: I meet a good game

These days, when I sit on the bus and go home or go to have my work, I will see an ad say that some animals in the film, I do not know it clearly, but I think it is a funny film because the animals in it can say some funny words. So I go to download the film in order to have a look at whether it is really funny.


Before I start to search the film, there is a ad come out in front of the film, I only see it said the silkroad gold with a large words. But I do not care much and close the screen. Then I continue my download. But soon it come out again, with a lot of curious, I open the website and come to have a look. It says that this is a good game and is easy to win a lot of game gold which can change to money. I was attracted by these words and want to have a try. So I do as the cue on the computer, but soon I find it needs to spend some money, I hesitated for a while, then I think I first spend a little money, if I lost it, I will not care. On the contrary, if I can win a lot of money back, I am so lucky. So I enter in the game and buy some sro gold as it says. I play the game on the one thing, on the other thing; I can download the film I want to see. I think it is a way of saving time.

When I just come to the game, it says welcome as the other screen, and then I buy some cheap weapons which look very funny. After that I come to go my silkroad as the name. With the help of the cue, I can easy to play it. And I soon win back some silkroad online gold to my account. I felt it is good and value to play. After a while, my film has finished downloading, I felt a little disappoint, but thinking that I can play the next time also, I came over the game and at the same time I have much more silk road gold than before.

With a lot of curious, I turned on the film and have a look. In it, it says that some animals in the zoo who are want to go back to the natural; they say their heart in the film. But to my surprise, they also want to play the game I just play, they all have some cheap silkroad gold in their pocket.

I think they have the same interests with me.

Scientists see 'rarest event ever recorded' in search for dark matter

The team caught a glimpse of a process that takes 18,000,000,000,000,000,000,000 years.

Surprising Science
  • In Italy, a team of scientists is using a highly sophisticated detector to hunt for dark matter.
  • The team observed an ultra-rare particle interaction that reveals the half-life of a xenon-124 atom to be 18 sextillion years.
  • The half-life of a process is how long it takes for half of the radioactive nuclei present in a sample to decay.

The mind-blowing science of black holes

What we know about black holes is both fascinating and scary.

Videos
  • When it comes to black holes, science simultaneously knows so much and so little, which is why they are so fascinating. Focusing on what we do know, this group of astronomers, educators, and physicists share some of the most incredible facts about the powerful and mysterious objects.
  • A black hole is so massive that light (and anything else it swallows) can't escape, says Bill Nye. You can't see a black hole, theoretical physicists Michio Kaku and Christophe Galfard explain, because it is too dark. What you can see, however, is the distortion of light around it caused by its extreme gravity.
  • Explaining one unsettling concept from astrophysics called spaghettification, astronomer Michelle Thaller says that "If you got close to a black hole there would be tides over your body that small that would rip you apart into basically a strand of spaghetti that would fall down the black hole."

Space travel could create language unintelligible to people on Earth

  • A new study proposes that language could change dramatically on long space voyages.
  • Spacefaring people might lose the ability to understand the people of Earth.
  • This scenario is of particular concern for potential "generation ships".
