Review: "Lego Minifigures Online" - PC

Reviewed by Teen Gamer for FamilyFriendlyGaming

SCORE: 73/100

Family Friendly Gaming was provided a code to play Lego Minifigures Online on the Personal Computer. This is a stand alone PC game that does not require a portal like Steam to play it. Lego Minifigures Online is also an online video game. That means other players, and a big hit on your Internet usage. I will write more on that issue later in this review. Lego Minifigures Online follows the concept of the different Lego mini figures found in packs at stores.

 

THE DESIGN OF THE HUMMINGBIRD...

The shape of a hummingbird's beak allows for a "controlled elastic snap" that allows it to snatch up flying insects in a mere fraction of a second -- with greater speed and power than could be achieved by jaw muscles alone!

Hummingbird beaks are built to feed on flowers, but hummingbirds can't live on nectar alone. To get enough protein and nutrients they need to eat small insects too- 300 a day!

But how can a long, slender bill which is so well suited for sipping nectar (just the right length and shape) also be good at catching insects, and often in mid-air?

In 2004 in the journal Nature, it was reported that part of the answer lies in the hummingbird's flexible bill. Using high speed video of three hummingbird species catching fruit flies, researchers found that the hummingbird's bendy lower beak flexes by as much as 25 degrees when it opens, while also widening at the base to create a larger surface for catching insects.

It was discovered that as soon as the hummingbird's beak is maximally bent, it suddenly springs back to its original position and snaps closed.

Their beaks snap shut in less than a hundredth of a second!

And we are supposed to believe this bird evolved this way? Absolutely not! The beak has been clearly designed for the purpose it was given by our Almighty Creator!

The five piece band is fronted by founder and vocalist Josh Myers, backed by guitarists Brian Elliot and Jason Law, bassist Andrew Davis and drummer Kyle Zahorski. The group aims to bring hope to those in dark places, but they don't take shortcuts along the way. They opt instead for honesty as raw and real as the guitar tones in their post-hardcore sound.

Review: "Whitewashed" by Amy C. Blake

Reviewer: Jamie for CTFDevourer

Spiritual Content Recommendation Scale: 5/5

Questions pelted me like hail in a summer storm. What if my suspicions were true? What if Poppa…and Moses…? I needed to analyze the facts. Just like Pastor Thomas said about Esther, I needed to find the truth.

God help me. For once, I don’t want to see.

I had no choice.

More than Sparrows

For a reason

Unless you live in a bubble or under a rock, you’ve no doubt heard someone say, ‘Everything happens for a reason.’ When something tragic happens in your life, as sure as the sun is hot, one of your well meaning friends will quote these words to make you feel better. In reality sometimes you just want to punch them square in the face. I get that.
