Polynesian Voyage Society

KFC...? You know those people who nibble on those chicken bones? Well those chicken bones were radiocarbon dated to see when the polynesians travelled to South America. The result was that the polynesians travelled to South America in the pre columbian year. Pre columbian means, "Relating to the history and cultures of the Americas before the arrival of Columbus in 1492." So they travelled before the year 1492.

Good Friends Explanation - Writing Test

Do you know what a good friend is? Is a good friend who makes you angry or sad instead of lifting you up making you happy? No thats not a good friend a good friend is someone who; you can trust, someone who tells the truth even when its hard, someone who always support you no matter what and someone who doesn't judge you.

Would you rather be friends with the whole school or with only 6 people that are good friends? I would pick quality, which was the second option because the better quality of friends you have, it is highly likely that your happiness will extend and you will have friends who will always support. Its like the saying, “Quantity or Quality?”

Racism is the #1 thing I absolutely hate! A good friend is someone who doesn't mock you or judges your culture but loves you for who you are. You should never mock or judge someone else about who they are even if they mock yours. What I’m telling you is if he mocks you then someone else will mock him which means karma hits him. Thats another saying, “What goes around, comes around.”

The consequences without friends would be that; there would probably be nobody to listen to you, you would be bored, nobody to tell your secrets, you have no one to trust and most of all nobody who can cheer you up. If you want a happy life you always have to be a good friend to someone and you have to always stick to someone who leads you in the right direction.

Life without friends would be; boring, unhappy and many other reasons. So if you want a happy life/future then you need to find a good friend who; will lead you in the right direction, someone you can trust and who tells the truth and you have to be a good friend yourself cause, “What goes around, comes around!”
