HUGO CHAVEZ

You might know him for being one of the worlds highest producing oil president, but he’s just a Venezuelan president. His name is Hugo Chavez. Hugo Chavez has been the president of Venezuela for over twenty years. Chavez did some things to the Americans. Americans are the highest oil consuming country in the world. Venezuela is number three of the highest producing oil country in the world. Americans started getting oil from Venezuela, but Chavez did not like the idea. So, Chavez started making them pay for the exports of oil.

Chavez was fifty-seven years old. He got cancer. He was cured with all the medical assistance. From being so stressed from the Venezuelan elections, he got cancer again. That time it came even worse. Hugo Chavez died March 5, 2013. He remains a strong leader for the poor, but has a very bad reputation with the rich. R.I.P. Mi compadre. Chavez is a very well, good role model for my family, and other poor. When he died people cried, or people celebrated. He is still the president of Venezuela. Venezuela has other elections coming in a couple weeks make sure to leave a comment.images-9

SLENDER MAN!!!!

Editor’s Note: Slender Man is ultimately a myth that comes from a variety of different nations. How, who, or why he supposedly chooses his victims is merely speculation.

Slender Man is a creature who supposedly follows children and kidnaps them. He usually wears a suit with either a red or a black tie. He does not have a nose, mouth, or eyes. In other words, he is “faceless”.

He is known to follow and possibly take children. He may even eat them. Some people have said that they have seen this mythical creature. But no one really knows if he’s real. There is a radio show in California that had a many phone callers telling them about Slender Man experience they have had. There is a video game about Slender Man. The game is called “SLENDER: THE EIGHT PAGES.” It takes place in the middle of the night in a forest. The purpose of the game is to find eight pages while trying to avoid Slender Man.

The player’s equipment is a flashlight to see through the dark. It has a battery life gauge. Eventually, your flashlight will run out of electricity. Slender Man does appear. If the player stares at him too long it’s “game over”. I personally do get scared easily. This topic isn’t really my favorite thing to discuss. If you believe in SLENDER MAN, please leave a comment below, and tell me what you thought of the game.

FELIX BAUMGARTNER

Felix Baumgartner has broken the highest record for free-fall. He even broke the sound barrier. His free-fall took place from the stratosphere. To go up to the stratosphere he had to take a helium balloon. His speed was 834 mph. This event took place on October 14, 2012. He is an Austrian skydiver. He went to military in Austria where they taught him how to skydive and parachute.

I would not do this because I think space s a very big place and I’m scared that I would get lost. Its weird that I think like that.I always ask my mom “What if something happens while I’m in space?” Everyone has their own opinion and their own fears. That’s my opinion! Write you opinion in the comment section. Tell me what you think about this man. Would you do it? Read the article at Google! Thanks for reading!!!!!!

WAIT I’M NOT DONE YET! Watch the video on Youtube. The link is right below these paragraphs. I think this man has guts to even trust a freakin’ balloon to take him up to outer space. I would not trust this process at all. Well, he has trained for this his whole life so i guess its worth it. NOW, ill say ….THANKS FOR READING!!!!!!!!!
