  3. Hmm i think this can give... POWER! and it will make it so all we have to do is have something to spin it to get the power like a auto door or... (goes over 1000s of ways to use power) Hmm wait so now i need something to power this, but what can? *dad walks by and trys not to look at Hubert * Dad! *dad sighs* dad: what? Hubert: Can you run on this to test my invention out? Dad: ... ok, i guess i can help...
    ( 2 hours later )
    Dad: (murmurs to himself) why did i do this?

  4. In the process of building the wheel Hubert discovers an invention that his mother made for him that he never knew about. When he asked Gorp about it Gorp said he didn't want to give him any ideas for new inventions. Gorp isn't very happy that Hubert is building again, but this time Hubert talked him in to listening and trying it out. Hubert has finally started to put his wheel together but its still in the planning stage. Gorp doesn't like the idea of walking in the wheel I'm sure. As Hubert is explaining his invention Gorp doesn't seem very happy, he may be strong but this is a lot of work. It didn't help that Hubert kept bringing up his mother and how she would of been so proud of him for all of his creations.

  5. Gorp decides to help Hubert with his newest invention, "Electricity" Said Hubert with gratitude. "So how exactly does this work?" Gorp said breathing heavily. "So the power of your tugging skills should bring that power over to here and rub these animal skins together and create sparks of light." "What?" Gorp said with confusion. "You'll see." Gorp started to run, and not just run, like run run, like you couldn't see his feet. The machine started to work the skins were rubbing against each other and when Hubert saw it, he was so amazed. "Uhhh..Hubert?!" But he didn't hear. "Hubert!!!?" "What!" the machine was falling apart and smoking. "Gorp stop running!" Hubert said. "I can't!" And when he stopped he was spinning around in a circle 10 times per second. The wheel broke off and went rolling down the hill. "AHHH!" Gorp screamed. But Hubert didn't run down the hill, he got an idea.

  7. one day Hubert and his dad went to a wheel and Hubert dad said to Hubert lets test the wheel so they tried the wheel and they said that the wheel is good but the wheel was not stable. The next day Hubert went to the wheel and before he got to the wheel the wheel rolled away.

  8. As I watch me dad run on the wheel I have created I realize he is slowing down. I say " You need to keep running I need to know if this will help the water run easer." I said over the nosies Gorp was making.
    Gorp replies "I know son but this is a little ridiculous don't you think."
    "No I don't think this is ridiculous." I said.
    " Ok son this is the last time I am helping you with your inventions.

  9. "I Invented the wheel(literally). I have been SO busy lately, coming up with the greatest invention. Here it is: Drum roll please... I call it, the WHEEL! So Dad, How do you like it?"
    " See son, here's the thi-"You can exercise on it Dad, and so can spike, you can waste all his energy!" I say with excitement.
    "Whoowe!!" Dad jumps on it and starts screaming with joy. Finally someone likes my invention!!

  10. hubert is trying to find a tool that will help gain power to make his contraptions move with out complication
    of switches an levers but to use a wheel to move just by running to power stuff and exercise gorp he calls this invention the treadmill

  11. I see a man and a boy. The boy is trying to help that man on the wheel. The man is walking and sweating. They are on dirt.

  12. Hubert is finally starting to invent the wheel, this time he has some help from a person who is older maybe his dad's age but I don't think it is his dad. The wheel reminds me of a hamster wheel, but also Hubert could have invented an early treadmill. The person inside the wheel doesn't look happy at all there is something about Hubert's facial expression that makes me wonder what he is thinking only because it doesn't look like it is a great to have when looking at your own invention.

  13. "This could be my greatest invention yet!" Instead of pulling sledges, we could use transportation a whole new way! and it wouldn't be so hard on the oxen. "Dad!" "what?" "Could you check out inventions for one!, This ones for you!". "Fine Hubert i'll be right there". Gorp steps on the wheel but is puzzled. "What do I do" "Hold on to the handle... And RUN!"

    ReplyDelete
  14. "Come on, come on, I need to see if the wheels are working properly!" said Hubert. "Son, don't you think that this is a little overboard?" "Dad, do you want to give me a business that is almost 5 decades old, and is not using modern technologies that people can use without dying in the sun" Hubert fired back at his father. "Well, if you say so..."

  15. I have just made the best invention ever! But what should I call it, toaster, no to toasty, zipper, no to zippy, shower, no to rainy, I've got it, a Tread Mill Electricity maker! Yeah, that is perfect!The only thing missing is the thing that powers it. "Sigh" But who should I pick? I have lots of good candidates: Hodja, no if this went city state wide all of Ur would be drowned out with sound of clacking hooves from all the Onagers, Spike, no he couldn't run for as long as it would take to power a house for 10 seconds plus every home would have a pile of dead lizards because they ran to long, Dads, Yes every dad in all of Mesopotamia could power their household and get in shape at the same time! Whoa, could you image the possibilities! Wow, I could get rich build a company of my own selling all my inventions, but only if it works.

  16. When Hubert was done he tested it on Hoja, it worked perfectly. "Just wait till dad sees, this this will show him that all of my inventions are not fails" Hubert exclaimed. "DAAAAD" Hubert shouted "YES" replied Gorp, "come see what I made" exclaimed Hubert. "Oh no" Gorp said to himself as he trudged to go see what Hubert had made. Hubert and Gorp were working on the Ziggurat. "What is this" Gorp demanded, "well what happens is that your run on it and it pulls the mud bricks to the top of the Ziggraut so you do not have to carry them up" Hubert explained. "Well then lets try this out" replied Gorp. Gorp hopped on the wheel at full speed and the wheel started pulling the mud bricks to the top of the Ziggurat. "Its working" Hubert shouted with joy. ....

    1. "What do you call this contraption?" Asked Gorp in delight. "The wheel!" Hubert explained proudly! "The wheel... The wheel... The wheel? Well I can't believe I'm saying this but son, I am actually fond of this invention!" Gorp said with shock in his voice. "Thank you!" Exclaimed Hubert in delight. "Wow, I'm really picking up some speed. This could be my new exercise tool!” Soon all the others were lining up to check out Hubert’s newest invention. This machine made their jobs so easy!

  17. "I just made the greatest invention yet" I say with excitement as I take my dad and throw him on the wheel. Ok, I want you to run on this wheel for a little bit until you smell that burning smell. As I see him run I fell butterfly's in my stomach. After a little bit of day dreaming I smell the smell. Stop I scream at my dad who jumps off the wheel and runs away. As I pick up my experiment I make a name for it I call it toast. As I eat it I feel like I'm in haven.

  18. "Let's go!" I heard that onager loving kid down the street invented something called the wheel. I get down to his house and he has an amazing view of the ziggurat. It's amazing, anyway back to the wheel. He put for of them on one of those darn sledges and boy it was easy to push and pull.

  19. "Go faster!" Hubert shouted "I'm going--as fast as I--can!" Gorp said between wheezes "I need to make this the best invention ever, the whole town will be better" Hubert said as he was imagining it. Gorp stopped running "you say that every time!" Gorp sighed Gorp started walking away "wait, stay here!" Hubert yelled "No I will not be a part of your silly machines" Gorp said firmly as he walked into their home. Hubert sat on the ground and breathed deeply "I might be able to get Hodja to do it" Hubert whispered to himself he ran up to where Hodja was sitting and said "Hodja come walk on my newest invention!" Hubert tried to sound very enthusiastic about it, it worked Hodja jumped up and hoped on the machine after all the time passed he was sitting and thinking of what to call it then a lightbulb went off in his head " I've got it, the wheel!"

  21. "I can feel it!" Hubert exclaimed as he put the final touches on his latest invention. "This will be my greatest invention yet, now all I need to do is convince Gorp to be my test dummy." Hubert was thinking of ways he could get his dad to try his invention but was interrupted. "HUBERT!" Screamed Gorp, "WHAT IS THAT!" and he pointed at Hubert's invention. Hubert had been preparing for this and began to give his lecture to his dad. "Your getting old and I will have to take over your business." Hubert waited for his dad's approval. Gorp considered this and then nodded his head in agreement. Hubert continued, "and you know very well I hate sledges." Once again Gorp nodded his head. "So I thought of this idea called the wheel! We could use wheels instead of runners!" "Hubert," Gorp said " I Told you once I'll tell you again-" "please, please, PLEASE, just try it" Hubert interrupted. "Fine" grumbled Gorp and he got in the wheel.

  22. ***CONTINUED FROM JILLIANS***
    The first time Gorp got on the wheel he slipped and fell on his face. Then he quickly got the hang of hit and started to walk, but he wasn't going up. So he started to run, then he realized the wheel was spinning. "Run faster!" Hubert ordered his dad as a huge grin came across his face because of his latest invention. It was a runner wheel. It worked by turning when ever someone would step or run on it. Hubert couldn't wait until he put it onto the sledges. But instead the wheels would move when the sledge was pulled.

    1. It looks like Gorp is working for his son Hubert. Gorp does not like Hubert's inventions because Gorp likes to do things the hard way. I like to do things the easy way.

  24. From looking at this picture of Gorp and Hubert this is what I imagine happened. "Hubert!" exclaimed Gorp "What did I tell you about making inventions!" "Just trust me on this one it's a new innovation!" Says Hubert trying to convince Gorp to get on the wheel. "Don't worry this one safe... mostly." After a while of convincing Gorp finally agrees to run on the wheel. " I am just supposed to run right?" Gorp asks "How long do I have to be here for too?" Hubert answers with a simple yes.
    Hubert started to observe how is wheel like invention was working. -To be continued- Maybe

  25. Today we are going to make the wheel that will make my dad get in shape because he can’t lay of the bread for once. So I have started it dad are you ready. He said, “Yes, but start out slow.”
    “Ok, I will, but it will get faster.” So my dad gets on the wheel and there is a bump in the middle and some loose ropes. It gets faster as my dad is getting tired, he only goes for 10 seconds and stops. We stop it with a rock and you might fall when it stops. If the rope snaps the wheel will fall off and then roll down the hill. So we start it back up and it was very loud and slower. But we turned it up all the way and it was very crazy. The wheel looked like it was going to fall off. It then stopped. My dad was very dizzy. He got up saying, ‘’Let's not do that again.” It then started up with rapid speed and my dad was flying all over the place in the wheel. The rope then snapped in half and the wheel started to roll down the hill. As I was panicking, the wheel smashed into a brick wall, and as that happened I thought in my head, I am grounded.

  27. I think this picture shows Hubert testing his new invention, the "treadmill" on his dad Gorp. He is testing this invention on his dad, because his dad needs to get ready for a fight against the Assyrians.
    "Son why are you making me do this, i am already in good shape!"
    "Dad you need to exercise, the Assyrians could attack any day and we need to be ready" replied Hubert

    *********A couple day later*********
    " Dad whats that noise?"
    Hubert feels a rumbling under his feet. Gorp looks up and all of a sudden at the top pf the hill by their house,there must have been a dozen Assyrians.

  30. I am the great inventor Hubert and I have invented the first converter belt. You may be asking yourself how this is going to be helpful to society but I promise you this will change the future. So basically how the machine works is someone (my Dad in this case) gets on the wheel and walks. When they walk the wheel moves then moving the smaller wheel ish things that are connected to the big wheel. There is a strip of animal hide on a table that is connected to the wheels and when the wheels move it moves the hide. You can put something on the skin and it will move. The skin loops around the table so the skin is never ending. I think this invention will change human history as we know it. "Hubert who are you talking to" My Father yells over the squeaking of the wheel. "Oh just myself" I yell back to him "well quit talking to yourself and take a turn on this wheel" He says well jumping of the wheel. "Fine" I tell him "but only for a second".

  31. i think Gurp is trying huber's invenchin and huber call it the whell and grup don't like it.

  32. Hubert invents a wheel. Why Hubert invents a wheel is because they need water. Next I think that the wheel is trying to bring water from the ground, but the wheel did not have a enough power to pull the water out of the ground. Then Hubert had his father go in the wheel so that the wheel will have more power. Then he had too much power then the wheel came off the pedestal. The wheel went down the hill and the wheel went on, on, and on. Then the wheel came to a stop. Gork came out of the wheel and Gork Puked!!!!! THE END!!!!

  33. well dad this invention makes water go up hill by you running it goes faster up the hill. start out slow or else something will go wrong! well Gorp being Gorp starts running and the wheel breaks off the platform and goes strait back words heading to the Queen. oh no.........to be continued......

  35. when I got to the top of the hill I thought of the possibility's of getting up hill because it was a hard walk. I realized that I could make a sledge and have a rope hooked to the front of the sledge and a another sledge on the other side that is heavy er then this side and a spiny thing to keep the rope running easily. When I got the spiny thing working and the rope on it the rope ..... To be continued .....

  36. Hubert is trying to make a contraption like a wheel to make pulling the sledges easier for Meg, Ed and Hodja to pull the load up to where the load needs to go and making two wheels to put on the sledges it would speed up the work pace making it be done in less then 7 years.

  37. Hubert is testing the wheel. Gorp is inside the wheel running to see if the wheel spins. Hubert is outside of the wheel observing as Gorp tests it. Hubert has the wheel set up on some poles so the wheel does not roll away.

  38. "Hey dad" said Hubert. Huber's dad said in annoying"what". "I just made a invention where you run on this wheel and then it sends a bucket up all the steps and up to the well and collects some water and takes it back down to the house" sound in excitement. his dad got on the wheel and started running, but what Hubert didn't figure it out is that there is a weight limit of 90 pounds... but Hubert's dad is 229 pounds. Every thing started to wobble and then it fell... "HUBERT"...

  41. I am Gorp and i am feeling really dizzy from running on this wheel like a hamster. I wonder if hamsters get dizzy after running on a wheel for hours.I can't believe that Hubert put me on this wheel. I kinda wonder why he made this wheel and what the purpose of it was? Maybe I will ask him!Hubert why did you invent this wheel?
    I was asked today why I invented the wheel well I think this was just one of my inventions that I just felt like making. Maybe I wanted to make a human operated system.
    PLEASE ADD ON!!!

  42. Let me just tell you that my dad is one stubborn man. When it comes to my inventions, he just doesn't want to hear it. I mean what kind of person doesn't want their life to be easier? Oh right, my dad. But I knew that this one was going to be awesome, it had to be. You see, every day, my dad and I have to pull these awful things, called sledges. We have horses who pull them for us, but is incredibly slow and boring work. I had always thought that, 'what if it could just roll its way along? That's when it hit me. I invented something (that after a long time), called the wheel. I wasn't quite sure if it worked yet, so I figured I could test it on my dad... You see he has taking a serous liking to the beautiful queen, and I think she might be into him! But if my dad wants to win her over, he's going to need to get in shape. SO I attached my "wheel", to a system that allowed it to turn without it going anywhere, added some bars, and it was all set. "Dad come try this new invention of mine!" "I'm not getting involved in any off THOSE!" He exclaimed. "It will help you with the queen." I said mysteriously. He appeared in the doorway, "What do I have to do?" "You just have to run on this," I explained pointing towards the wheel. "Fine." He said, with a frown. He stepped on and started a light jog, the wheel was turning perfectly! So I knew that the sledges would be newly improved. But I needed to get back at my dad, for taking my toolbox so much. "Faster, faster, faster!" I screamed, until he could barley breathe and sweat was dripping down his face. "Okay, that will fine dad, thanks." He jumped down and said, "The queen is going to be so impressed," and bolted out of the room. Meanwhile I fell to the ground laughing, After I laughed until I could barley breathe, I jumped up, grabbed my toolbox and darted out the door, in search of wood. I knew that this invention would be life changing, and I was going to be known throughout of of Sumer, or maybe even all of Mesopotamia.

  43. I think hubert is making the inside of the wheel and his dad is in side and hubert will put on the outside and jump on to see if it can hold weight. Then suddenly it will fall and rollll!!!!!!!!!!!!!!1

    ReplyDelete
  44. I just had the best idea ever! I could invent something that would help you loose weight and get fit. But how will it work? Hmm... oh! I know! I could make a circle out of wood, and then you would run in it! This is a great idea, but my dad, Gorp hates all my inventions, and I can see why. Last time I invented a wheel, I forgot the brakes, and we ended up in the Euphrates river. (But to be honest, I think he could burn a few pounds) So I to ask him anyway. I walk inside and I see he's fixing a crack in one of the bricks that makes up our house. "Dad, I came up with this really cool invention! And before you say no"..."NO WAY! I'M TIRED OF ALL YOU'RE INVENTIONS! LAST TIME YOU MADE A INVENTION, WE ENDED UP IN THE EUPHRATES RIVER!!!!" "I know dad, but this invention of mine will help you loose weight, which I know you've been wanting to do for a long time." And I promise we won't end up in the Euphrates river again!" " Well, I have been wanting to loose weight for a long time, and if you promise that we won't end up in the Euphrates river... well... okay. Fine." "Thanks dad!" "Whatever" he said, and went back to fixing the bricks. I worked all day figuring out how I would assemble it, and worked all night assembling it, until finally, it was done. I walk into the living room and he's already to work out. Gorp has his white headband on, and a pare of running pants on, that kind of makes him look like a girl. "Where is it?" He says. "It's right out here." I say. My dad and I walk out both with excitement. Dad looks at it, and you could tell he wasn't impressed. "Is this it?" "YES!!!! ISN'T IT AWESOME?" "How does it work?" " Oh... so you step in this, and then you just start running." "Oh that sounds easy enough."(He doesn't like complicated things) He got on the treadmill, (Oh! Treadmill! that's what I'll call it!) He got on the Treadmill, and started running."Hey! This thing is pretty good! He said. He was running pretty slow. " Can I run faster?" He asked. " Ya, sure." I said. He started running really fast "I can already feel me burning off calories!" He ran faster, faster, faster until... CRACK! It was the sound of wood breaking. I closed my eyes, fearing for the worst. I opened my eyes and the worst had happened. Gorp and the treadmill were rolling down the hill. " AAHHHHHHHHH!!!!!!!!" "HHHHUUUBBBEEERRRTTT!!! He was heading straight for a giant dirt jump that had piled up from the dirt that had been dug up from planting crops. He hit the jump, and landed with a thump on the ground, and then kept rolling straight for the Euphrates river. I closed my eyes, and heard a loud splash. He had landed straight straight into the Euphrates river. Gorp comes out soaking wet. I knew I was in trouble. " HUBERT YOU SAID THAT I WOULDN'T END UP IN THE EUPHRATES RIVER AGAIN!!!!!"Well, actually I said that WE wouldn't end up in the Euphrates river, and WE didn't. Only you did." "HUBERT!!!"

  46. I think Hubert may be testing out a design for the wheel or the inside of it.
    or this is just another one of his inventions. To me it looks like a hampster wheel or a tread mill

  47. "Hubert, I'm going as fast as I can", says Gorp.
    "No your not, go faster", replies Hubert.
    "Hubert if this turns out to be one of your disastrous...uuuummm...what's that word?"
    "Inventions", replied Hubert.
    "Yeah inventions", said Gorp. "I will be taking your toolbox."

  48. "OK dad, just five more minutes." Hubert informed his father. "FIVE MORE MINUTES!" complained Gorp "I've already been at this for at LEAST a half-hour!"
    "Calm down dad. The machine's almost charged."
    "Why am I even helping you?! Your inventions are useless"
    "How am I supposed to know why you're helping me? Maybe it's because . . .

    (Take a guess at why Gorp's helping Hubert make an invention?)

  50. Hubert is talking to his dad about the wheel he invented. Hubert is being bossy to his dad. The reason why it looks like Hubert is being so bossy is because on the picture it shows Hubert's look on his face and his hand. To be continued...

  51. “Ugh!” Hubert’s dad, Gorp, groaned as he did one more lap on Hubert’s complicated invention. “What is this thing?”
    Hubert answered, “Dad, it’s a new powered wheel that runs on human strength. The pulleys are going to lift up some heavy supplies to help build the Ziggurat!”
    “Hubert, I know you think I need to lay off the extra meat at dinner time, but why am I doing this and not you?”
    “Because you’re stronger than me and more manly.”
    Hubert explained to Gorp that the supply needs to go onto the Ziggurat in a place that other people cannot reach, so they need Gorp go the wheel go round to lift the heavy supplies. Gorp continued to run around the wheel. Then suddenly the wheel broke loose of its restraints and started rolling, and then it went down a hill, a really steep hill. When Gorp started to .go down the hill he yelled back to Hubert, “If I make it out of this thing alive I’m gonna kill you!”

  52. Hubert is having his father try an invention so that Hubert can prove him selve to his father. So Gorp gets on the invention and he is starting to like it so Gorp keeps trying. Gorp starts to get tired and the invention malfunctions and gorp passes out...

  54. "Wow Hubert, this invention is so-"
    "So what dad?" As he asks this the wheel breaks free and starts traveling to the ziggurat.
    "POINTLESSSSSSssss" as Gorp started rolling away.
    "Well that's not supposed to happen..." Hubert muttered. "Wait I have a great idea, I will call it a treadmill, with better restraints of course."

    ReplyDelete
  55. "HUBERT!" Yelled Gorp
    "Yes?" Asked Hubert afraid.
    "Enough with these stupid inventions!" Screamed Gorp while running on what seemed like a giant hamster wheel to him. Gorp really wished Hubert would stop messing around inventing things, and take over the family business.
    "Hubert, you know I really would like to have you take over the family business." Said Gorp.
    "Dad! I love inventing it's my favorite thing ever." Relied Hubert
    "HUBERT, I SWEAR. YOU NEED YO TAKE OVER THE BUSINESS!" Gorp yelled annoyed.

    WHAT HAPPENS NEXT? CONTINUE

  56. As stated before, Hubert hated everything about sledges. He knew if he didn't come up with something better than a sledge, he would be doomed to work in his father's business.
    "Hmm," he thought aloud. "How can I replace the runners on the sledge with something better?" As he watched the farmers operating their sledges in the nearby fields, the idea suddenly occurred to him. What if he could build a hollow cylinder that could be put on its side and be rolled? As he hurried home, he recovered his toolbox, which was recently hidden by Gorp. The Poplar trees near his home would soon be cut down in sacrifice to make this invention. After he cut down all the trees he needed, he constructed two wooden hoops and many short boards. Then he pieced the boards together, attached to the hoops. Then, he connected the invention to some ropes and pulleys, and held up his new contraption by some large sticks. Now, Hubert just needed someone who would do a test run. Interrupting Hubert's thoughts, Gorp trudged into the house carrying his usual haul of food. He stopped and sputtered when he saw Hubert's new invention.
    "WHAT is that?" Gorp demanded.
    "I am going to call it a wheel, Dad." Said Hubert. "And I need someone to test it out."
    "I TOLD you that there would be no more of your wild contraptions! And I will absolutely not try it out!”
    “What if we made a deal? If this ‘wild contraption’ doesn't work, I will promise to not go looking for my toolbox again. And if it does work, I get to continue on making my inventions.” Hubert said. Gorp thought with all of his might, which wasn’t very easy for him. He considered his options. If I try the wheel out, it obviously won’t work, because since when have any of Hubert’s ‘inventions’ produced success, Gorp thought. He remembered when Hubert created a plumbing system. All that did was produce calamity, in Gorp’s opinion. And the thought of Hubert not inventing things anymore and working in the family business was fantastic! That’s it, Gorp decided.
    “Okay Hubert, the deal is on!” Gorp said as he clambered onto the wheel.

    1. "Yay!" Hubert whooped as he hustled Gorp onto the wheel. Hubert prayed to the gods that they wheel would work. He did NOT want to give up his toolbox, otherwise he would have to work with.... THE SLEDGES. Hubert shuddered at the thought. He turned back to Gorp who was wobbling inside of the wheel.
      "So, Dad, you hold onto this bar so you don't fall over while you are running," Hubert instructed. Gorp gripped the bar. "Now you just run!"
      "Alright son." Gorp started with slowly walking. Once he felt comfortable with that he picked up the pace... Hubert started to sweat. What if it didn't work?

  58. I hurry to finish my lunch and run towards the ramp of the Ziggurat. Here in the city of Ur, where I live, an enormous Ziggurat is going up. The Queen has ordered that all able bodied men and boys must work on the construction of the Ziggurat. With so many people the construction site is crowded, but Queen Eridu doesn’t care. She is just happy that we are two years ahead of schedule. Yep, you read it right, the Ziggurat is expected to take 7 years to construct! By the time it’s finished I’ll be 22 and will have wasted 7 whole years of my life.

    Anyway, I was sprinting as fast as I could up the ramp, dodging bricklayers and craftsmen, when I may have ACCIDENTALLY ran into a water carrier. You would of thought that since I’m also a water carrier, the guy would've been like “hey no problem,” but that absolutely wasn’t how it worked. Instead, when I bumped into the man he spilled the water, completely drenching himself. He turned to me with an angry look and pulled back his arm to punch me in the face. This guy, just so you know, was big and burly with large beefy arms. As soon as I saw his fist clench, I got out of there as fast as I could and didn’t look back.

    When I got to the top of the Ziggurat I walked over to my dad’s wheel, where he was working as hard as he could to help pull the sledges up the mountain. At the top of the Ziggurat there are 6 wheels, (with one strong man in each) just like the one my dad is running in. They are all connected to a pulley system that meets at the top of the ramp. From that, runs a sort of rope tow that the sledges are attached too. They are all spaced out about ten feet from each other, and when they reach the top a crew of 4 men pulls them off. The tow is only used for sledges with loads that are too heavy for even the strongest oxen in Sumeria to pull. Being a water boy, my load is not heavy enough to be brought up by the tow. Instead I have to have my onager Hodja pull it up by himself.

    As I watch the wheel spin around and around with Gorp (my father) running inside it, I wonder what it would be like if there was nothing to stop it from moving. It would make way for so many new forms of transportation. In fact, the wheel would be a revolution! As this thought occurs to me, I run down the Ziggurat as fast as I can to get my toolbox, and start my great invention.

    PLEASE CONTINUE!!!!!!!

  59. "LOOK DAD I DID IT I DID IT HURRY COME LOOK" I screamed from my bedroom "what is it now" he said mopping in my room " look look I call it the Wheel. He gave me a head tilt "Now What on the name of the Ziggerat am I supposed to do with THAT" "Well for fist off you can call THAT the Wheel" " okay son loo-" "oo and look at this you can run on it to get your legs stronger look. I jumped on the Wheel and started to sprint " you see it's fun!!". " Now hold on a second.... And let me try" He jumped on I could feel the floor shake then he pushed my face off the Wheel, off my own invention I try to get him off but he won't....

  60. “Hubert what's going on I have been at this for days”. “Just a little longer dad see if you can spin the wheel just a bit faster”. The problem here was Hubert was never satisfied and Gorp was so stubborn and did exactly as he was told. So stayed there till they finally died of hunger thirst and many different diseases.THEEND
