Futures With Hitler In Charge Are Incredibly Terrifying

I’m not actually afraid of spiders.

Recently, I read a book called The Only Thing To Fear. And I’m telling you, you haven’t been scared until you read it. It’s not the book. The book is great. In fact, it’s so great that I would totally recommend it to anyone.

WHY HELLO THERE, EVERYONE! HAVE I TOLD YOU ABOUT THIS BOOK…?

Sorry. My bad. I totally forgot I was writing a post to put on the internet where everyone can read it. I am so, so sorry. Please, ignore that last bit.

So, this book is about what the future might have been like if Hitler won WWII. Apparently, the Nazis had been working on a secret project in their Torture Chamber “Laboratories”. That secret project was people with superpowers. (I know, it’s like someone took all the awesome ever, poured it into a funnel, and made this book.) The Allies had been trying to create the Atomic bomb, but the Germans succeeded first. So they took their army of mutants and conquered the world.

*Time Skip*

3 generations later, Hitler still rules the entire world. But not Adolf. His Grandson, Dieter Hitler, has inherited the throne. After much experimentation, the Nazis discovered how to give someone superpowers, and still expect them to live to 80. Also, these new super powered people, (aka Anomalies), can pass the superpower gene onto their kids.

Aryans are like the 1%. Except with more. So, the 30%. And everyone else is poor and barely scrapes through life. Did I mention the fact that only the 1% get to have superpowers? Yeah, well, if you aren’t the 1%, and you have superpowers, the 1% kill you! (Also, the Japanese get to be Aryan.)

I feel like that’s a metaphor for something.

Zara, the 16 year old lovechild of a Japanese soldier and a farmgirl, is a dual anomaly. That means she has 2 powers. And one night, she uses her powers to defile the portrait of Hitler in retaliation for the Nazis killing an old friend. And then everything just begins to fall apart. I won’t spoil it for you. (heheheheh) She makes…

But seriously. Just imagine, for a second, what your life would be like if Hitler was in charge. Then go around and kiss everything. Just: “OMG I HAVE IT! I HAVE POSSESIONS! I LOVE ALL YOU GUYS SO MUCH! I WOULD SO MISS YOU GUYS IF YOU WERE NEVER BORN!

Appreciate life, because what if someone went back in time and helped Hitler win. Life as you knew it never would have existed. 

Take A Little Inspiration

I’m back! Wow, I missed this!

I’m growing up in the internet generation. More and more people are spending time on their computers and stuff. But o course, I can’t really get mad at them. Or you. After all, where do I write this blog? On the internet. And where do you read it. Same place. And of course, another wonderful thing the internet s that it has brought us Netflix. Of course, you have to pay for it *sigh* but since I am technically still a kid my parents pay for our family account!

Now, I’m sure you’re wondering 1. Why the heck is the she talking about Netflix? 2. What does Netflix have to do with books? 3. During her six-month sabbatical, did she suddenly convert to only watching movies? The answers to those questions are:

1. Because I can. So I will. And did. Ha.

2. Nothing. Nothing at all. Except it does have to do with Mean Girls. And Mean Girls has to do with books. So in a roundabout way, you end up with books. This strategy can be applied to anything. Try and find something that isn’t. I dare you!

3. No. Also no, no, nopers, negative, and nada.

So anyway, as I was saying, Netflix. *STORY TIME*

A few days ago, I was sick, and had to stay home. And I wanted to watch Mean Girls because I had never watched it before, and all my friends said that it was hilarious. (If you don’t know what it is, I am very sorry for you, go google it right now. Or if you hate Google or something, go… bing it? Eww. That just sounds wrong.) So I got it from the library!!!!! One of my favorite places in the whole wide world! I love it so much! Every town should have one!

Anyhoo, it turns out that Mean Girls is based on a book called Queen Bees and Wannabes, so I had to read it. It’s actually sort of scary. But I am lucky, as my friends all are great. *BACK TO REAL LIFE*

So, after that lovely story, I hope we all know the moral! Come on, come on, let me hear you say it. I say “What’s the moral”, you say the moral! Ready? Ok!

What’s the moral?

”                                                        ” I can’t hear you! I said…

WHAT’S THE MORAL?

”                                                                         ” That’s the spirit!

For those of you who didn’t know the moral, the moral is “Every good movie comes from a book.” Now get back up there, and say it. Go on. I’ll wait.

Welcome back. And just in case you didn’t believe me, here is a list of movies inspired by books.
