E.T Numbers

Post by Dark Slopes » Sun Sep 29, 2013 10:39 am

When they discovered life on Mars, initially the Public and Press were fascinated.

The interest waned when it was realised this life consisted of little more than a species of small, beetle-like creatures.

Their sole notable attributes seemed to be their vivid blue color, and the speed of their reproduction cycle.

By the time the first samples and breeding pairs had arrived on Earth, the interest had diminished to non-existent, and the coverage in the Press was minimal.

A few months later, to much fanfare the new Stellar Blue M&Ms went on sale, with their proud boast – no artificial colorings.

Starbucks inspired?

Nice drab. I might break it up with some paragraph breaks, it makes it more readable and enticing. Trick the brain into thinking it's shorter.

I liked it.
