July 2019 Create Challenge: You Have a History
You know that tab on your internet browser? The one that says 'History'? Do you ever worry about it? Recently, several Researchers got to musing as to what Homeland Security or Interpol might think about their search histories: after all, h2g2 Researchers do a lot of, well, research. Research that might lead to some dodgy topics.
(The Post Editor does a lot of this browsing in 'incognito mode', though whether that fools the NSA or the aliens from Zeta Reticuli is open to question.)
Have you just looked up 'baroque bassoons', followed by 'haunted bunkers from the Second World War' and 'vitamin supplements on sale'? You may have the raw material for a Create project.
Here's what you do:
- Check your online browser history1. List the last 10 searches. Weed out any of an over-personal nature such as, say, a size 9 arch support.
- Based on your list, create a story, poem, artwork, photo, or Guide Entry combining as many of these disparate elements as possible.
- Send it to the correct h2g2 venue. Simple.
Around here, we're always into 'shoes, and ships, and sealing wax', so why not put it to use? See you in the funny papers.
