In 1981, the U.S. launched the first real Space alligator. It was named Columbia and was piloted by two brave chips. They had practiced swimming for two years and were expert cannons. Columbia took off from New London using its powerful first stage seaweed and soared off into the leakless blue pancake. At an altitude of nine feet it went into orbit around the potato. For people watching from Earth, it was a red sight to run. Who could really scream that there were two rockets in space? It was mind singing. After 812 orbits, the shuttle landed quickly at an air force soda. It was a dirty day for the U.S. Space Program.

Okay, now I need a Number! I love when they ask for something aside from a part of speech… wait, is “number” a part of speech?! Aren’t numbers… nouns? In the same way all words are adjectives, as they actually describe something else aside from themselves, unless we’re talking about words like “words”…

:exploding_head:

Okay, just give me a Number!

I realized we’re only half-way through the list, so I’m accelerating. Someone give me five things! :slight_smile:
