BC: The adventures of Alex Ferguson

FC: The story of Alex Ferguson by: Christian Gonzalez

1: Thanks to everyone who help me do this thank you

2: This is the story of Alex Ferguson.Alex was born in England. He had two great friends John Locke and Galileo Galilee

4: One night when Alex and Galileo where doing nothing Galileo said I'm bored so Alex and Galileo decided to look at the stars with an invention Galileo made. He called it a telescope

5: Alex asked "what he was looking at with your telescope?" Galileo said "he was looking at the moon"

6: Then Alex asked Galileo "do you really think that everything revolves around us?" then Galileo said " no i think that everything revolves around the sun which is the heliocentric theory

7: While Alex was looking at the stars he asked "So what are you going to do with your findings" Galileo answered "i am going to publish them and tell the entire world"

8: Alex, being as smart as he was, said "you know you are going to get in trouble with church." but Galileo dismissed him. The next day Alex invented a time machine and went to the year 1775

9: When he got to the year he was amazed it worked. when he looked around he noticed that he was on a boat. he asked someone where this boat was going and they said America

10: When he got to America he meet a man named Thomas Jefferson after a couple of hours they became good friends. Thomas told Alex that America was at war with England for their freedom

11: Alex helped Thomas write the Declaration of Independence but when Thomas asked him if he wanted any credit for it Alex said "no I don't but I do have a question. Where did you get the idea of freedom? Thomas answered Enlightenment

12: Thomas asked Alex if he wanted to go to a salon with him tomorrow Alex asked what a salon was? Thomas said " a salon is a social gathering of intellectuals and artists Alex said sure that sounds...nice

13: During the salon they talked about their government how many people will be in charge and how they will win the war they talked about our advantages: motivation to win, they can fight forever, and they had the French. In 1981 America won. Alex was kinda surprised.

14: After they gained their freedom, they wrote the constitution and established their government. In the constitution, there was the bill of rights. The bill of rights protects citizens’ basic rights and freedoms.

15: For their government they established three separate branches—legislative, executive, and judicial branch. Each of the three branches had equal power which provided a built-in system of checks and balances.

16: After a couple of years Alex missed his friends and tried to travel back to his own time but his time machine was broken so he had to fix it. After he fixed his time machine he said bye to Thomas Jefferson and typed in the year 1632 but the machine messed up and sent him to the year 1677 and in London, England.

17: Alex met a great scientist, Isaac Newton, who was trying to find the laws of motion so Alex asked if he could help. So using the scientific method the came up theory that all physical objects were affected equally by the same force they called this gravity.

19: The next day he met a man named Thomas Hobbes. He believed that all humans were naturally selfish and wicked without a government. | Alex thought that was funny because he friend John Locke thought the exact opposite. Locke thought that everyone could learn from their experience and improve themselves.
