World Book Wednesday

Volume W

Wheel and Axle- "Wheels provide motion by reducing the friction between a surface and an object moving on it." 

Too bad the wheels don't ease the friction on your achilles
tendon caused by roller skating in your dress shoes.

Wonder, Stevie- "is an American singer, composer, and musician known for the originality and force of his music."

His music was forceful yet he was never known for violence, possessing weapons, or
even using bad language. They just don't make musicians like they used to. 

World- "At the present rate of increase, the world's population will be about 6 1/3 billion by the year 2000."

That prediction was only off by about 250.  Million.
