I talked about the potential of humans and how we have to realize our potential. Pretty bad bullsh*t if you ask me. Better than one of the Korean kids (i go to an international school btw) who assumed that Hope and Daring are varieties of Wood and brick... poor guy

One look at the question and I thought everyon'es going to write cliche crap. So I said "imagine a day when hope and daring are all that are needed to build bridged. now stop imaging. thank goodness that day will never come!"

then i went on about the idealistic nature of governments, entwined in their streneous processes and the shotfalls in human nature and how its good that this philosphical bullshit isnt reality

OMG! i hope wut i wrote was alright.... took me 10minutes to think of wut to write for this speech...
i wrote,, imagine that we had a task to build a bridge using humans... then i was tlkin bout how we hav to co-operate to beable to succeed in the task otherwise the bridge would collapse if everyone were to fight...
then, somehow from all my blabbering,, i went onto the subject that co-operation can elimate wars and stop deaths.
whoopsie think i went off track...

oh yea also, for the EXCITING NEWs.. i accidentally wrote my schools name instead of the school name on that page (_ _)' ... am i gonna loose lots of marks from this :(

That sounds like a great thing to write about - takes into account the picture really well and would make a really interesting speech... i wish i had taken such a lateral approach

Wow. That's so left-of center! Alternative thinking - I like it.

"Plugs and bungs". I put assonance. It's not rhyme, it's not alliteration, wasn't the right context for onomatopoeia. One of my friends put 'slang' or 'colloquialism'. *Shrugs*. There may be more than one answer, it's like the opposite of multiple choice :D
Crap. I put rhyme. I was thinking "okay, its not rhyme, but its the closest thing I can think of!" I wasn't thinking straight.

Anyway, for the extended thing, I wrote about facing our own challenges and in doing so, raising money for the poor, and as a result, building a bridge using daring, between the rich and the poor...which was kind of weird for a speech addressing year 10, but whatever

Mine started 'imagine an endless supply of renewable energy' and explained how such things would never happen, just like building bridges of hope and daring. Then I questioned the legitimacy of building a bridge out of people and who would have to make the bridge and never touch the promised land on the other side. Pretty much about sacrificing ourselves for future generations. Then some more explanations about not shooting down the dreams of others. Then some more about human society working together regardles of age, sex race etc. Pretty much over the top writing. I liked that question though, very open ended. Promoted thinking.

Yeah, I agree that speech was stupid. I started good. and didnt know what else to write to finish it. so i rewrote the starting to further emphasise the point. I wrote about how we can't be a bridge if we have fear and racism and sexual discrimination etcetc. I thought i bullpooed it quite convincenly. Whoohoo

I think 99.99% people wrote about either world peace/unity sorts of things, or "follow your dreams" sort of thing. I was the latter.

lol..stupid question indeed. I dont think the content mattered too much anyway. Its the technique that were used that are gonna get marked on, not your ability to write in an interesting manner. LOL, someone wrote how builders build bridges and hope to make alot of money.
