superpowers
So here I was,in my bedroom, watching Captain America The Winter Soldier. Then mid way through the movie I got teleported into the T.V!

Lots of purple,gooey stuff was around me,some of it was on my new T-Shirt.Then I thought if I come back home in Philadelphia with that gooey stuff on me,I could become a famous professor and fly to Washington D.C and meet President Obama.When I was thinking about this,I didn't realized that I was out of the portal.Then I thought,where am I? who wants me? is this a trap? then I looked up.

I saw Captain America,he said that I have developed superpowers! I jumped into the air as high as a airplane flying in the sky.Then Captain America told me that I have figured out my 3 superpowers leaping,flying and strength
Captain America said that I can save a lot of lives and wear this golden uniform for ever.

So I went home and flew over to Washington D.C to show president Obama the purple gooey stuff,I went back home to Philadelphia and saved a lot of lives.I am well known as Professor Rob Robinson and Fantasy Man.

Narwhals
You may think that narwhals are normal creatures that roam the Arctic, but believe it or not the narwhal population is said to be about 40,000, but all that is changing. Oil and gas is taking over narwhals habitat. Because of more ships in the sea, there are more collisions which will make more noise and that will affect the communication among the the whales causing them to be confused because they can’t hear each other.

Habitat
Different to other species of whale that migrate, narwhals live their lives in the ice cold waters of Canada, Greenland, Norway and Russia. In the winter most narwhals stay under the ice for up to five months in the Baffin Bay-Davis strait area. Narwhals are usually seen in groups of twenty to thirty with different combinations of male, female and calves.

Calves
Narwhals calves are generally born in July and born outside deep bays and channels and stay with the mother narwhal for about twenty months after they are born. Female narwhals are old enough to have their calves at the age of five years and over and males after eight years. Calves are born in the middle of July in the following year (after 15 months of gestation) Female narwhals normally give birth every three years.

Body
Narwhals tusk is said to be an important part of the mating process, because the males have been seen quite a lot, crossing  tusks during mating season, as well as using them during over fighting over who's the head of the pod. Narwhals have small round heads. They have short flippers with upturned tips, but they have no flippers on their back.

So now you see why these amazing creatures should live. So stop releasing oil and gas into the ocean so they can live their wonderful lives.

Winning The Lottery

“And the winning numbers are: 1,4,2,6,2,7,2,7,9,0,8,3,5!”
I look down at my card and see those numbers. I had won Big Wednesday!
“The lucky winner will be teleported here in 5,4,4,4,1! I feel a small amount of static and look down. My feet go transparent and then pop. Then the rest of me pops and I’m at the lottery place. “And here is our lucky winner, Nathan!”

I enter quickly and stop in front of the callers.  The people show everyone a quick clip of my history of helpfulness. I take my chance to ask my questions there and then. “Who are you? How do you know my name? How did you get that clip? How did you teleport me off my sofa?” The questions came in a rush. “Well, I am Andrea and my assistant is William. I know your name because-”
“Well that is Nathans story of how he got to be here.” William said and I realised that we were on air once more. “So, spin the Wheel Of Fortune!”

I spin the wheel with all my strength. The prizes flash by and I read a few. A boat! A lamborghini! A diamond encrusted glove! A! MILLION! DOLLARS! A diamond statue of me! The wheel slows. More prizes. Slower. Prizes. Slower. Stop. I had won a diamond as big as my fist! “Look at that prize!” William stated. “Nobody has EVER won that before!”
“And thats tonights show!” Andera exclaims. “Goodnight everybody!” Then everything swirls and I-

“Whoa” I exclaim as I wake up. “That was a crazy dream. Maybe I should go get a ‘double shot soy, not to hot mochachoca*’!” I walk down to the store and buy a double shot soy, not to hot mochachoca. Then I walk past the lotto store. “hmmm… maybe i’ll buy a ticket.” I buy a ticket just as the numbers are called. “ The winning numbers are: 1,2,4,3,6,5,7,8,0,9!” I look at my card. Those are the numbers. “Not again!” I groan as I feel that strange Static once more. “The winner will be teleported here in 5,4,4,7,1!”

Cats tongues
Have you ever wondered why cats tongues are rough. Well all that woundering is over
for good.
Surface:
In the center of the tongue the cat has a small backwards facing barb, Known as filiform papillae.
These papillaes contain keratin and serve several functions.
Why:
The cat uses the barbs on its tongue to to clean themselves.The barbs on the cats tongue helps to keep them clean and not end up scruffy the second after.Those ruff barbs are so rough that the barbs brush their fur to make them tidy and neat.
Mouth:
It is a true fact that a cats tongue gets stronger by sticking it out at you. These cats have at least 130 disease-causing microbes exist in your cat’s mouth, and due to her long, thin teeth, bites are more likely to cause puncture wounds, which can reach into joints and bones and are extremely difficult to clean. Up to 80% of cat bites can get infected if the wounds are not properly treated.
Conclusion:
Cats are very unique creatures and have a lot of fun things that are on their tongues.

The best of minecraft. In minecraft you can get things like a diamond pick axe so you can get gold ,diamonds, iron ,and lapies.

If you make a portal you can go to the ender dragon but you have to kill it with a bow and arrow so you get this little balls it gets you more levels like up to 30.

In minecraft there are creepers, zombies spiders, skeletons, have bow and arrows to kill you but if you full diamond army so you don’t get killed.

You find diamonds 10 blocks up from bedrock  it’s good getting diamond army and a pickaxe.

I think minecraft is good because you can find a lot of stuff and it is so unsual
you can kill zombies with a diamond sword and you can get stuff from the zombies. If you kill a creeper you get two bits of gunpowder.

If you play minecraft you will be loving minecraft for your whole life it’s the best game ever.

He has failed to complete one of his goals 102 meters  as he said he ran out of oxygen in his body and he gets a feeling when he knows when to pull the rope.he said to us that he is sorry and he will bring home a record for us.

I developed a super power
I walk into S.H.E.I.L.D hovercraft, to find Beetee sitting there and looking at me not with an ordinary kind look more of a mean and selfish look. “What happened” I ask before realising my mistake, Beetee jumps up from his chair and races over to my before i could say bingo.

Then he handcuffs me he hand cuffs me!!!!!!! “I am the mockingjay i think” “What are you doing.” Beetee shoves a long syringe into my arm, that looks like it is filled with some sought of attonic gasses “help!” black armed guards come and realise the dilemma. they pick me up and pull me out of the room.

My eyes slide open, very slowly, very quietly. I stare at this guard who is lying next to me looking soulfully scared I look down at myself i am completely covered in feathers I realise what i am i’m a mockingjay.

In comes a nurse she screams! I get up and begin to run I don’t know what i’m doing i’m just running. I come to the deck it is so bright it looks like the suns come to earth and blinded everyone.

Slowly the eyes of the new me adjust,or in other words become able to see. I run to the edge of the hovercraft “I want to die.” swinging over the edge my wings spread and instead of falling, gliding is what happens i tell you.
The mockingjay floats down to the ground wow that was amazing katniss I tell myself.Even though it was the time of my life, tears flood my eyes. Someone must have seen me for shouts of horror from distant areas around me, phones begin to ring, “animal control is coming!” someone screams. “NO I SCREAMING IT OUT TO YOU NO!” I am perfectly normal.

The next thing I know is that Animal control has turned up and is rushing over to me. “It is alright,” they say “where just going to put you in the cage here, alright.” “NEVER YOUR’E GOING TO KILL ME I AM NOT STUPID.” immediately i spread my wings and take flight into the breezy sky.

MY FAVOURITE MEMORY.

I remember it as if it were yesterday,boarding the plane all the excitement rushing to my head,what was going to happen when i get to the foreign land across the pond who’s going to be there when i land.All these questions filled my body with fear,excitement,and nervousness but not to much.Fortunately my mum knew what was going to happen so that calmed me down a bit.

I finally landed and the first thing that came to my mind was that it was cold,freezing cold but when i saw my dad my whole body started to melt because he left the Philippines before us and i was heart broken and i always wanted to go with him but I couldn't. After that i wasn't able to sleep for sometime but i learned to handle the pain but it was worth it when we were together again.One part of the memory is when i saw our t.v,it was extremely old it was probably from the time when the television was created and i think we could only watch C.D's on it but i liked it,it had a certain feel,i had many memories with it.
