Greetings Captains!

 

We are looking to fill TWO SPACES on our Wiki Team! Do you have what it takes? Well, here is your chance to prove it. We would like for you to write a 500 word essay on Admiral Graf Spee. Tell us a bit about the creation, history, and overall make up of this ship. 

 

This contest will run from 1530 Pacific Thursday 12/01 through 0900 Pacific Monday 12/05. 

 

We will be judging on facts, spelling, punctuation, and grammar. So make sure it is buttoned up and ready to go by the deadline. Also, we will be checking for copy and pasting! Don't be that guy PLEASE! The community will catch you and so will we. You will be disqualified from any future writing contests. Thanks.

Swear you always make these when I'm busy working on Grad School papers, not that I know how to edit a wiki anyway.

Are you Plagiarism Police?

 

Actually plagiarism can land you serious criminal charges, I wonder if things will go that far...

Whenever I get a package of plain M&Ms, I make it my duty to continue the strength and robustness of the candy as a species. To this end, I hold M&M duels. Taking two candies between my thumb and forefinger, I apply pressure, squeezing them together until one of them cracks and splinters. That is the “loser,” and I eat the inferior one immediately. The winner gets to go another round. I have found that, in general, the brown and red M&Ms are tougher, and the newer blue ones are genetically inferior. I have hypothesized that the blue M&Ms as a race cannot survive long in the intense theater of competition that is the modern candy and snack-food world. Occasionally I will get a mutation, a candy that is misshapen, or pointier, or flatter than the rest. Almost invariably this proves to be a weakness, but on very rare occasions it gives the candy extra strength. In this way, the species continues to adapt to its environment. When I reach the end of the pack, I am left with one M&M, the strongest of the herd. Since it would make no sense to eat this one as well, I pack it neatly in an envelope and send it to M&M Mars, A Division of Mars, Inc., Hackettstown, NJ 17840-1503 U.S.A., along with a 3×5 card reading, “Please use this M&M for breeding purposes.” This week they wrote back to thank me, and sent me a coupon for a free 1/2 pound bag of plain M&Ms. I consider this “grant money.” I have set aside the weekend for a grand tournament. From a field of hundreds, we will discover the True Champion. There can be only one.

Here's my baddie attempt at writing. It's slightly above 500 words but I promise you it won't be some 50-page university paper.

Good luck, Captains! May the winds blow in your favour, and may your shells fly straight and true!

If you see me in a game, cover your eyes and ears cos I'm gonna suck. In fact, run like hell and hope we lose honorably. And burn your eyes after seeing my stats.

Torpedoes don't have any friends. So they will kill everything in their path. To prevent team kills we should all watch out where we fire those fishes. That means each and everyone of us, DDs of the second line!

No my name does NOT refer to those things from Odysseus! They refer to those loud things attached to a fire truck. Not to beautiful girls singing on the Ocean.
