Mad Libs are a well-known fill-in-the-blanks game, where a story is posted with a number of words deleted and then filled in by the player.

I have created a rather long one here. Despite its length, I believe it will be well worth the wait when the result finally does appear.

We're putting together a character sheet.

2. Object
3. Number between 1 and 20, inclusive
4. Number
5. Verb
6. Verb
7. Verb
8. Name of real-world person, mythical figure, or fictional character
9. Adjective
10. Noun
11. Positive number
12. Positive number
13. Positive number
14. Verb ending in Ėing
15. Number between 1 and 20, inclusive
16. Number
17. Number
18. Adjective
19. Noun
20. Adjective
21. Plural noun
22. Adjective
23. Positive number
24. Number between 1 and 20, inclusive
25. Number
26. Verb
27. Verb
28. Verb
29. Adjective
30. Verb ending in Ėer
31. Adjective
32. Unit of measurement (length)
33. Item of clothing
34. Even number between 4 and 12, inclusive
35. Number between 1 and 20, inclusive
36. Number
37. Noun
38. Noun
39. Noun
40. Sex/Gender (male, female, intersex, or anything else that fits this category)
41. Positive number
42. Number between 1 and 20, inclusive
43. Verb
44. Creature
45. Object
46. Number between 1 and 20, inclusive
47. Number
48. Body part
49. Positive number
50. Even number between 4 and 12, inclusive
51. Number
52. Occupation or type of person (baker, cleric, surfer)
53. Positive number
54. Adjective relating to size (big, little, humongous, etc.)

Are we supposed to answer one number each, a bunch or all of them? I'll start with the first one.

It seems I forgot to define the process properly.

One word per post is what I was going for, but if you feel like doing more per post that's fine with me too.

my god that speed is ridiculous

3x10^8x10^-11 m/s = 3x10^-3 m/s = ~5-ft/10 rounds. It's a very slow speed. Of course you will never see them when they are concealed.

it moves that many light years per round, not that portion of the speed of light

1 light year = 9.46073047 x 1015 meters
0.00000000001= 10-11
that means that we are looking at
94607.3047 meters per round

Or for the few feet-users here (shame on you for not using the meter) somewhere around the 310400 feet. This monstrosity could cross the distance between the Earth and the Moon in around seven hours.

I don't know why I was thinking lightspeed instead of years, especially when I was the one who suggested light years in the first place.

Oh, you're very welcome. I'm actually surprised it didn't take longer.

If anyone else wants to do another mad lib on this thread, feel free to do so.
