Empty your mind, be formless. Shapeless, like water. If you put water into a cup, it becomes the cup. You put water into a bottle and it becomes the bottle. You put it in a teapot it becomes the teapot. Now, water can flow or it can crash. Be water, my friend.

  1. I think the dinosaurs that we see in films are fantasy because the dinosaurs became extinct millions of years ago. The designers of films make models from wood, plastic, paper, iron and other materials. First, they buy the materials, when they buy them, they make an iron structure where they will give the shape of the dinosaur. Then, with the fabric, plastic, cork,.....that they've bought they fill the voids of the structure. Finally, they give the shape of the dinosaur and paint it. Now, today is going to release a film called Jurassic World. I saw it and it's fantastic.
    I think tattoos are very interesting because they have a lot of history. Since ancient times, the Egyptians tattooed their bodies as a symbol of power. In my opinion, tattoos are damaging to health because they change the composition of the skin. The ink used is damaging to the body. I recognize that they are beautiful but they have many effects on skin. I have a cousin who has many tattoos on his body and he has had many problems for this reason.

  3. Dinosaurs are a diverse group of animals of the clade Dinosauria. They first appeared during the Triassic period, 231,4 millions years ago, and they were the dominant vertebrates for 135 million years. Dinosaurs became extinct. It's believed it was produced by a meteorit.

    Today, there are lots of films about dinosaurs. These films create models of dinosaurs from wood, plastic, paper, iron and other materials.

    I saw Jurassic World at the cinema last Wednesday. It's a dinosaur film based in the other three films of Jurassic Park. This is a film which has been most seen since Titanic.
    'The park opens its doors after twenty-five years, after the closure of Jurassic Park. The park is working on a new attraction with a new dinosaur called 'Indominux Rex' more intelligent and fiercer than any other. What would happen if it escaped?'

    I know that most of the dinosaurs in this film were created digitally, but others were handmade, because the actors had to interact with them in the film.

  4. In some films like Jurasic Park , the dinosaurs are handmade , but in this film there are digitally dinosaurs too.Humans will never know the actual appearance of the dinosaurs, but we try to make approximations from bones found . Recently, it has been brought to light a new release of Jurassic Park (Jurassic Park World). Dinosaurs films likes most people of all ages , I saw Jurassic Park World recently, and I loved the whole movie, today is the most watched movie after Titanic.
    Nowdays there are too many people who have tattoos , is very popular have tattoos , but the adult people thinks that have a tattoo is bad people , I don't think so , because have a tattoo isn't good or bad , if you have a tattoo is because you want to, have a tattoo does not make you a bad person.

  6. Dinosaurs became extinct about 2.7 million years ago. Many of them were carnivores, others were herbivores and other omnivores. My favourite is the Tiranosaurus Rex. It was a large dinosaur with large jaws and large, strong limbs. He ate other dinosaurs and it was very fierce.

  7. The history of the dinosaurs started 230 million years ago, in the middle of the triassic period. The dinosaur word was proposed by the english scientific, Sir Richard Owen, in 1841. Dinosaur means "Terrible Lizard", and this denomination comes to him because Sir Richard saw them like great extinct reptiles, very differentiated within the animal kingdom. They are the result of a specialization process of the locomotor system, which has led them to have the extremities under the body.

    Within the subdivisions we can find two very important: Depending on the time they are. From 245 to 208 million years ago they are said to be from the Triassic. From 208 to 144 million years ago, they are from the Jurassic era. From 144 to 64 million years ago, they are from the Cretaceous. In addition, there is another depending on your hip. Thus we find the ornithischians, whose characteristic is that they have the pubis backwards and downwards, and the saurischians. These have the pubis forward and down.

    On the other hand, the tattoos is a very interesting theme of the actuality. Nowadays, everybody who have eighteen years old have some tattoos in his body. But this can be a problem in the future, because in many works they forbid you to have tattoos. By this reason you shouldn't have any tattoos, and unless it is not visible.

    In conclusion, we should think very good before we get a tattoo because this could mark our future. For example, we maybe we did no enter to our dream's work because a tattoo. Even so, many teenagers like have tattoos because they want have some symbol that they remember.

  8. The history of the dinosaurs started 230 million years ago.The dinosaur word was proposed by the english scientific, Sir Richard Owen, in 1841. Dinosaurs believed to be extinct by meteorite.
    Today there are a lot of film of dinosaurs, and my favourite is Jurassic Park which deals with three experts and other people are invited to an amusement park, where dinosaurs created based on DNA are found.
