Tonight, Mom told us about how scientists discovered that bacteria feeding on sewage create electricity. She said that it also could clean up a lot of pollution, because they eat rotty stuff. We immediately thought about trash powered cars--"More energy-efficiency in exchange for a stinkier fuel tank!"--and Mom explained how it would have a better by-product, water. The possibilities are nearly infinite...

Today, all i have to do for school is a Compare/Contrast paragraph about Mickey's Christmas Carol and the original, the movie version of Around the World in 80 Days, and the game version of Around the World in 80 Days. I'm doing the Comp/Cont thing on my blog...Here 'Tis.
Mickey's Christmas Carol is similar to the original. One way it's similar is that the plot and characters are basically the same. Some of the lines are also mostly unchanged. Marley's chains are also still made of odd things (though not the same.) However, like most story-to-movie adaptions, there were changes--The most obvious is the characters. They look like Disney characters. Also, it's considerably funnier (For example, instead of just "Merry Christmas," Bob Cratchit says "And a Bah, Humbug--I mean, a Merry Christmas to you, Scrooge.")
Scrooge is slightly nicer and barely survives his encounter with the Ghost of Christmas Future, who actually has some lines of dialogue. Mickey's Christmas Carol is certainly similar to the original, but there are many differences as well.
How do you like it?

Did I Just Read That?

Today on my school, i found this gaping error:
President Lincoln's blockade strategy forced the quickly formed Federal navy, which included converted yachts and ferry boats in its fleet, to patrol more than 3,500 miles of coast. To simplify this task, navel ships concentrated on blocking a few key ports.
Innie or outie?
