NASA's Journey to Mars


My name is Mark Watney and I have been stranded on a desolate planet after a freak sand storm, and I mean a freak storm, as there has been nothing but sunshine and a very light wind since. I will be posting a journal in case someone finds my remains as I have no hope of being rescued.

Journal Entry:1


I have found a variety of plant life, but only one is edible. It looks like a potato, tastes like a potato, so I deduce it must be a potato. I am a very clever botanist!

I know you think you see a house behind me. Believe me, you do not. Would I be living outside....without a shower if there was housing available? Right...so there isn't a house behind me. There is in fact, a hologram of a house behind me. I haven't found the source yet. This gives me hope that I am not alone.



I've retrieved all the wreckage from the ship that was scattered around my base camp and have begun trying to reassemble the rocket.


Thankfully, I do have an ample supply of "quick meals" in my space cooler. The "potatoes" will provide a way to stretch these tasty meals out and I will hopefully not starve to death.

I've done a bit of traveling and found that there is a holographic town and neighborhoods scattered throughout the landscape. Even holograms of "people" roam about. Let me tell you, it is a nasty trick! I spent a good hour running up to these "ghosts" trying to communicate.


I've gotten use to walking through buildings not being able to touch anything. Imagine my surprise when I found a solid object and it worked! I enjoyed a long deserved shower greatly.I will limit my showers to once a week until the water source can be found.

"Knock, Knock.....Who's there? Nobody."

Journal Entry #2


My potatoes are doing surprisingly well! Did I mention, I hate potatoes already? Didn't I?  Well, I do.


I can't believe my luck or am I cracking up? I found what looks like a local park a ways down from my base camp. I great spot to fish, some picnic tables and a "magic" grill. Seriously, it is magical. It is like a vending machine. It automatically ignites, then a generated list of recipes appears and I can choose what to grill. It has a wide range of choices. The food must be synthetic but it tastes great! What? Of course I ate it. I figure my "quick meals" will run out eventually and one can only eat so many potatoes without ending it all....so why not! The only problem is, the magic runs out and I seem to only be able to cook a meal randomly. I am checking every day. There is a nice mineral and fossil deposit nearby so it's worth the effort.


With my diet being so limited I must be careful on how many calories I burn but must also keep my stamina up. The gravity's pull much be must stronger here. That can be the only explanation for my difficulties in using this machine I pulled "out of the wreckage".

Hologram world! What a great idea. applause

Is your sim not allowed to communicate with others, or is this just your choice?

This challenge has made me want to read the book. Such and imaginative way of explaining everything.

Thank you lionpaws!

Only social interactions are allowed through the phone (with coworkers), slablet (chat with coworkers) or the PC (chat or chat with coworkers). No direct contact with other sims. Accidental conversations are immediately stopped.

Journal entry 3


Well, you are not going to believe this one. If you leave a pile of trash lying around for too long....it sprouts! No. I am not kiddin' you. Seems to draw insects. I think I will get rid of it immediately.


Ouch!

Oh....potato skins! I have to cut my entry short. For some weird reason...I don't want to but some strange force is shutting down my PC.

What do you say to an angry 300-pound baked potato? Anything, just butter him up!

Journal entry 4


Work on the rocket continues. Slowly.


The toilet is breaking down often. I was able to do some makeshift repairs. No. Potatoes were not used.


I did some exploring and found this suspicious looking tree. Unbelievable but true, it has a portal to some sort of lush and pinkish hued atmosphere. Of course, I am not kidding. I was so shocked I forgot to take any pictures. I did some fishing and caught a strange plant....yes, I said caught a strange plant. In the name of science and botany, I planted it.


It grew. Rapidly. I am amazed and terrified at the same time. I feed it aquatic fishlike things I have caught in the stream behind my base camp. It likes to be petted. I am keeping my eye on it. It hasn't moved but has mooed.

Why did the potato cross the road? He saw a fork up ahead.

Great update. I'm glad he is careful of that strange plant. I love your potato jokes at the end of each entry.

Journal Entry 5


I am so lonely and desperate for human contact. Last night I talked to me, myself and I.


I tested out the rocket ship. I was able to get some lift but not enough to break through this planet's Karman line I'll name it the T.U.B.E.R. Line. Why? because I can.


A few evenings after my flight, I heard a strange whooshing sound. The last thing I remember was seeing a greenish light.


Since then I've been suffering from strange stomach aliments. The potatoes must not be as safe for consumption as I thought they were.

Q: What do you call a potato that is reluctant to jump into boiling water?
A: "Hez a tater."

Journal Entry 6


I found a communicator in the remaining wreckage. I've set the frequency to what I believe someone on Earth may be able to receive. My middle has started growing and I feel movement. This can NOT be what I think it is. What do I think it is, you ask. Well, let's just say I don't think it is a mutant potato.


I've been searching the ship's database to see if there is any mention of weird stomach problems in past space missions. There was not. I did find some old books, movies and music files though. Guess what the first thing I opened was....go on guess....give up.....let me tell you...it's an oldie but a goodie..Alien (1979)....yhea, I'll pass.


I am not at all well. I've had a backache since yesterday. My feet are swollen, along with my gigantic midsection. I have to urinate all the time and I can't get comfortable. Does this sound familiar to anyone? I am beginning to think it MUST be what I think it is. Good grief....I am not built for this........

Q: What do you call potatoes that are never motivated, but are content to watch others?
A: "Speck Tators"!
