  • Waterloo: Napoleon’s Last Battle

    Update: For a closer look at a really cool shield and 2 swords that were owned by Napoleon himself and are in pretty good condition, visit http://www.napoleonshield.com/
    You’ve all heard of Napoleon Dynamite, and probably Napoleon Bonaparte. Napoleon Bonaparte was born August 15, 1769. He died May 5, 1821. He was born in Corsica, and always loved to play games like “Soldier” with broomsticks and things. He always insisted on being General.

    His parents sent him to a French Military school, where his French classmates viewed him as a Corsican savage. He emerged as a French artillery officer, and was put on garrison. (Garrison is defending a city or region). He rose to prominence as a General of the French Revolution, leading successful campaigns against the First and Second Coalitions against France. In 1799, Napoleon signed a coup d’état and installed himself as the First Consul; five years later he crowned himself Emperor of the French. In the First decade of the nineteenth century, he turned the armies of France against almost every major European Power, dominating Continental Europe through a lengthy streak of military victories—epitomized through battles such as Austerlitz and Friedland—and the formation of extensive alliance systems, appointing close friends and family members as monarchs and government figures of French-dominated states.

    Here are 5 video Documentaries to explain the rest of Napoleon. After the videos, there will be pictures and maps explaining more abut Napoleon and what he looked like, and the boundaries of the Huge French Empire.

    Hey everyone, I’m back! I was at my grandparents’ house, and we had to go to a family re-union, not the most fun time ever. 3 Hours of

    Oh my Lord, Scott! Look how much you’ve grown! The last time I saw you, why, you were only this tall!

    I realize they’re only doing that because they care, but still… It gets annoying… the 25th time

    If you haven’t been through that, LUCKY!!! Even if the family re-union wasn’t that fun, my grandparents’ house was. Me, my grandpa, and my dad went golfing. There were SO MANY mosquitos! I had to floor the golf cart to get away from them. Then, we went to play tennis and that was fun. It was doubles against Scott (I won 😀 )

    Also, I’m going to post later today (or early tomorrow) with free downloads for a bunch of CDs. They are completely free, before it lets you download them it scans them for viruses, and you can get them on your iPod or phone or whatever. It might be my top ten favorite songs. I don’t know.

    New Header

    Update: I ordered a header from http://redcowz.wordpress.com, so expect a new one soon!

    Yeah… It’s okay. Not so different from my other one because it has the same words on it and stuff. It just looks different.

    Scott777

    Stuff

    Update: I am planning to change a big idea of this site. I don’t skate as much anymore (I still do though) but I have played Tennis since I was 11 or 12 (One of the two) and I’m pretty good. So expect a new header soon.

    Hey everyone! Sorry there hasn’t been a post in a few days, I’ve been pretty busy and stuff. So for now… I decided not to do the lottery because I want this blog to myself. No, that’s not being selfish because you can just go create one yourself for free.

    Now, for something…. “unusual”? I’ve decided I don’t want this blog to be one of those blogs that have 25 pages. Even though I only have 4 (I count the main page as a page too because it is. So I’m going to have the rest of the skateboarding page in a post (This post actually) so its not completely gone from this site. So enjoy the page here.

    Here is the awesome skateboard I have:

    Here’s some skateboarding help, if you need it.
    How to Ollie: (Regular Footed)
    1. Put your right foot on the tail of the board
    2. Put your left foot in the middle of the board
    3. This is what I didn’t get at first- step down as hard as you possibly can with your left foot, sometimes it helps to crouch down so you can touch the cement you are on.
    4. Then, after you pop it, slide your left foot up the board with the left side of your left foot. Not the bottom of your left foot, the left side.
    5. Then, just come back down! Congratulations, you can ollie!
    What it will Look Like:

    How to Kickturn: (Regular Footed)
    This is vital to skateboarding, and its pretty easy.
    1. Press down with your right foot, not as hard as an ollie, in fact, not very hard at all.
    2. Then, while the tail (The back) of the board is still in the air, swing with your left foot, but still on the board.
    3. Congratulations! You can kickturn!
    What it will look like:

    Kickflip: (Regular Footed)
    This is a hard trick. You have to be able to ollie really high to do this, like 5-7″
    1. Start with an ollie
    2. But while you are in the air, flick the board with your left foot to make it spin underneath you in the air. Now you see why you have to ollie very high!
    What it will look like:

    Casper:(Regular Footed)
    1. Turn the board upside-down
    2. Put your right foot on top of the tail
    3. Put your left foot about 2 inches left from the bolts nearest to your right foot
    4. Swing around and stay in that position
    5. Flip the Board over and land on it
    What it will look like:

    Pogo: (Regular Footed)
    1. Stand the board straight-up on its tail (Or Nose)
    2. Put your right foot on the bottom trucks
    3. Put your left foot on the nose (Or Tail) on the other side of the board
    4. Balance, and start hopping! This takes a little practice to get your balance right though.
    Unlike the picture, you can have your hands on the top trucks, that is someone who is very good at the Pogo.
    What it will look like:

    Sorry I Haven’t Posted Lately

    Yes, its been a LONG time since I last posted, but I got back a few days ago. I’ve been pretty busy but its been so frickin hot its like 95 degrees F! At least there’s no humidity…
    Anyways I just watched National Treasure 2. It’s an Amazing movie. It was filmed pretty well. Benjamin Franklin Gates (The main dude) is really smart. He knows like everything about history that there IS to know. Even though its the movie producers doing all that stuff, it still makes him look really smart. Watch it when you get the chance.

    Anyways I gotta go to bed because its no 11:59:08! Yeah I’m down to seconds but that’s only because there is a digital clock on my computer.
