As part of Tycertank’s screenshot challenge, we’ve been tasked with posting a screenshot a day based on a series of predefined topics spanning the entire month of August.

Day 31: Dangerous

Dangerous

I was almost attacked by Jaws once. It was 1988 at Universal Studios where I experienced some of the movie magic that makes Star Trek, ET, Superman and space walking possible. I even had my pic taken with Frankenstein, among other things.

This shark doesn’t seem as menacing as the one depicted in the movie but I’m sure you’d think differently if you were in the same stretch of water. Now imagine if you saw this instead.

This concludes my 31 days of Tycertank’s #wowscreenshotaday challenge.

Day 29: Lucky

Owen's Wishing Well

Rumour has it if you throw a coin over your shoulder with your back turned to the Trevi Fountain in Rome, you are sure to return. I did this back in 1997 and still hope to revisit the city one day.

Owen’s Wishing Well was added as a memorial to Brian “Owen” Wicks after a visit to Blizzard Entertainment through the Make-A-Wish Foundation in 2012. You can read about his visit in a very touching piece written by his mother called A boy and his wish. It was hard to not feel emotional when I read about his story and I really praise Blizzard for these in-game tributes since they mean so much to the individual and their loved ones.

Clicking on the Lucky Golden Coin above will give you a 10min Made-a-Wish buff. On occasion you may also find Wodin’s Mantid Shanker, a rare BoA dagger located at the bottom of the well and counts towards the Lost and Found achievement.
