Hey guys! Thanks for all of the submissions to last week’s “Your Photos” Brainypics contest. I know it was tougher than usual because you had to take or dig up photos you’d taken before and then turn it into a Brainypic flashcard, but the turnout will still great. We basically matched last week’s record best of 540 pics. :]
This week’s contest: Brainypics About Brainypics. We got this idea from some really funny users. Basically, you create Brainypics with sentences that talk about the Brainyflix.com website, refer to other Brainypics, mention you as the creator of the Brainypic, etc.
Not quite sure what we mean? Check out these examples:
wrath (n): vengeful anger, punishment
assail (v): to attack
Belligerent (adj): Warlike; given to waging war
Good luck, guys, and get started —>>> Brainyflix
