100WC #32

My goal is to create the 100WC based on mind reading or “mind messages”. I got the idea from one of the books I am reading right now.

I was getting tired of buying hamburgers for the wall with the paper mache hands, all it wanted to eat and all it ate was gigantic hamburgers. Even though the wall had no mouth it still shoved the hamburger into the space near the roof of the building. Some how it also managed to speak inside your head and it always said “give me more hamburgers, or else…” So, as always, I went to the nearest fast food place and bought another one hundred hamburgers, ninety – nine to freeze and one for the hands in the wall.

BTN TASMANIAN DEVILS

Three facts I have are that the mother Tasmanian devil gives birth to about 30 joeys. But the mother has only four teats so usually only four of the joeys make it. It was believed that Tasmanian devils died out across mainland Australia about 400 years ago.

Two understandings that I have are Tasmanian devils’ population has been cut by more than 80% and they’ve made it onto the endangered species list because of a disease called the Devil Facial Tumour Disease.The disease is a special type of cancer because it is contagious. And that because the tumours build up around the animal’s face and mouth it can’t eat and it starves to death. Once a devil gets it, the devil usually only has about six months to live.

A question I have is why are Tasmanian devil mothers less pregnant in captivity?

100WC #31 WIDE ORANGE CROCODILE WITHIN COLLAPSED

My goal is to write thing in dramatic way.

It was close. The ORANGE CROCODILE was making it’s way slowly over the COLLAPSED wall and I would soon be WITHIN the crocodile’s eyesight. I crept slowly in a WIDE circle around the crocodile. Then began to start to run towards the entrance of the old, broken and falling down castle. As I quickly moved to the door but a bit of wood tripped me up so that I went flying to the floor. The crocodile heard me and turned around. I saw the crocodile move towards me again and then I turned on heel and fled the castle via the door.

BTN HOW DOES THE INTERNET WORK?

Three facts I have are that the internet can be traced back to the 1960’s in the US. In 1989, Tim Berners-Lee created a system used for sharing information on the internet and that around 3.2 billion people around the world use the internet.

 

Two understandings I have are that when you send a picture overseas firstly it turns into about a million pieces, then sent to the other end where the picture stitches itself back up.

Most of the cables that connect the internet are under the sea rather than using satellites, because the cables are more reliable to use.

A question I have is that why would the entire world depend on only the cables under the sea for the internet and not have a backup way?

100WC #30 …I just couldn’t eat something so…

“MUM” I yelled as soon as I got home. “What are we having for dinner?”

“Come over here and you will see!” She shouted back.

“Fine” I mumbled and slung my bag into my room on my way to the kitchen. And then my eyes fell upon the slop the mum was making “AHHHHH MY EYES”. It was so horrible my eyes were burning in the sockets ,the pain was unimaginable.

“Time to eat” my mother called as she set it upon the table. I just couldn’t eat something so horrible that I puked right then and there and ran off to my room.

BTN DONATING BLOOD

Three facts I have are one in every three Australian citizens will need donated blood at some stage in their lives. That there are about five litres of blood in the human body and once the blood is in the hospital the blood can be used for 22 different medical purposes.

Two understandings I now have are that there are two different types of blood; plasma and platelets. Half a litre of blood can save three lives.

A question I have is that are there any more types of blood?

BTN NORTH KOREA THREATS

3 facts I have are that Kim Jong-un is the leader of North Korea. North Korea has 10 nuclear bombs. The united states and Russia both have about 7000 nuclear bombs.

2 understandings I have are that North Korea has a long history of threats and that the U.S. and Australia have been allies since World War 2.

A question I have is why have North Korea made false claims to weapons in the past?

100WC from prompts made by Antony

My goal is to add dialog to my writing.

It was the best time of the day. Dinner time. Toady hopped into the kitchen and his nose almost dropped off. “What are you making”? Toady asked his dad as the slime dropped through the sieve into the bowl.

“This year I am going to enter the smelliest smell competition” Toady’s dad said proudly. “And I am going to win it!”

“Dad” Toady coughed “Can you do this somewhere else”

Toady’s dad looked up from his work and said “why?”

“Because it stinks!” Toady cried.

“Exactly” said his dad.

“But what are we going to have for dinner?” said Toady.

“This”.

BTN BRINGING BACK PLANET PLUTO

3 facts I have are that Pluto is smaller than our moon. Pluto was named a dwarf planet because it was too small. A group of scientists think that instead of having 9 planets we should have 110!

2 understandings I have are that the scientists think that a planet should be called a planet because of  the characteristics or texture of the planet. If Pluto is made a planet again then we shall have to learn lots more names of all the new 102 planets!

A question I have is why were so many people sad when Pluto was made a dwarf planet?

100WC #29

My head pounded as I drew one more rattling breath. I was so thirsty that I felt as if any second I would die. Then I saw the most wonderful thing in the world. Right there. A small droplet of water on a leaf that had yet to be dried up by the sun. I slowly walked over to the leaf and began drinking. It felt so nice to feel the water trickle down the back of my throat. I drank my fill then went to get my friends and tell them about the lovely drops of water.
