This video was about scientists who are trying to get Pluto back. Pluto is smaller than a number of moons in the solar system, including ours. A group of scientists are trying to get Pluto back as a planet. They say that we should classify planets by their characteristics, not by their size or location. Why do they want to bring back Pluto? How many scientists were on the project? There is a lot more celestial bodies than I thought. (110)

In this paragraph I will explain to you about the magic of books. Books are fantastic. They are wondrous things. They bring stories to life! And today I will tell you about one particular book, that literally brings a story to life. This book has magical powers. If the reader opens it and reads the first sentence aloud, it will engulf the reader in a huge storm, then teleport it inside the book. The reader will be teleported to a pirate ship, and be held prisoner forever. The only way to get out of the book is to get the spyglass from the captain. How do I know all this? This stuff once happened to me.
I can’t believe it. I’m actually fighting Medusa. In case you don’t know, Medusa is a lady who has snakes for hair and she turns people to stone if they look into her eyes. She is a Greek myth. Or so I thought. But I guess she can’t be a myth if I’m fighting her right now. Anyway, I’m battling her with my sword when suddenly she grabs hold of me and forces me to look into her eyes. I grab my mirror just as she turns me to stone. We both turn to stone and even to this day now, you can still see us. They built a wall around us though, so you can only see a little bit of us. Anyway, that’s how I turned to stone.
