Sonar would make a terrible baby name, “Awww, he’s so cute, what name did you decide on?” “well, it took a lot of thought, but we finally decided to call him ‘Sonar.’” I can imagine the reaction to this revelation. Silence. What kind of baby name is that? If my name were Sonar, I would call child services…

I already wrote about sonar yet i suppose i didn’t save it so i will go on a quick run through of what i talked about. I talked about dolphins cause i think i heard once that dolphins use sonar. Then i talked about their evolutionary development and the possibilty of them becoming as intellectual as a human.

I know so little about this when I think about it, it’s embarrassing. Sun, space, lasers, that circular thing that goes BLEEEEP. Submarines with uniformed men screaming ‘I CAN’T HANDLE THE PRESSURE.’

A submarine moves through the icy depths, searching for the lost ship. Using its sonar to avoid rocks and large fish, it searches and searches. Not only for the ship, but for the lost souls contained within. The families without closure, the bodies that have been stripped away.

Sonar…on submarines, on whales, on dolphins, does it really help? Or is it just another thing that will get screwed up when people throw loud noises into the water…of course it helps, just making silly conversation

Bats navigate entirely on sonar. That’s such a weird thing to think about. They’re these tiny creatures in the world, a lot of them no bigger than our hands, and they can’t see. I remember once I was little, and I close my eyes in the dark and tried to picture my yard mentally and navigate my way around my yard. I tripped over a rock and fell, and it scared me so much, I felt like the most powerless creature in the universe. But bats don’t suffer from existentialist crises of identity like humans do.

When i hear your voice, I hear beyond the words. I feel the vibration of your soul and that which you want me to know from within. It bounces within you and to me so that I can share what you love. And it’s this that makes me love you.

a sonar is something in space, i guess. something that show us how beautiful the moon is.

Bats of the wind,
Flock to their feast,
Echoes in the air,
To this frivolous beast.
into small, tiny ears,
Striking those in the path,
With their deepest of fears.

Bing, Bing, Bing…. Captain there’s a reading on the sonar! It looks like an enemy vessel. Whats your course of action sir?
By Luke on 07.17.2012
Used by submarines and other water vessels for detecting obstacles or other objects in the ocean.

Sonar is how a bat see’s. That being said I don’t want to talk about sonar, my pasta is ready in the oven and the buzzer is going off, i really want to stop writing but i wont quit so im just writing faster and faster and im really hungry and i havent eaten all day except a sanwhich and im drinking a magic hat has it been 60 seconds?

Sonar is sound. It is the waves and vibrations that make up sound. Did you know that when a sound is approaching you, the wavelengths are shorter, so the sound it higher? The opposite is true if the sound is moving away.
By Natalie on 07.17.2012
they dive deep, letting the sonar bounce off each other, letting themselves be free in the water, free to float, twirl and feed.
By Crystal on 07.17.2012
I don’t feel like doing this again. There is a boy who says he can see using sonar. He is blind and claims he sees just like a bat, or a dolphin can.
there once was a boat. ironically it was called the sonar. you know like the sonar detector things. it was a pretty awesome boat. a princess lived on there and she ate oreos all day. she was a pretty awesome princess. but the world could never see her.
By Nikki on 07.17.2012
As the ship sunk to the murky depths all that could be heard was the ominius ping of the sonar. I gasped my final breath and let the life escape my body.

She watched the various screens as they flashed and wavered, wondering if they could possibly locate their prey in all this noise.
“Do you really think he’s out there?” She asked.
“Can’t say.” He replied.

The dolphin sent a sonar through the water which was received by the transmission.

There’s a lot of technology at SHIELD – some of which Clint understands, some he doesn’t’ He doesn’t even pretend to know what he’s doing half the time – he just makes do. The new sonar kit though, has him stumped. It’s something he doesn’t particularly like and something he doesn’t even want to use.
By Clint Barton URL on 07.17.2012
I dont even really know what this word means. I guess it has something to do with the sun. Or maybe it doesn’t. I don’t even know. I guess I think of like, solar panels and doing good things for the earth and being a good person and making the planet love you. I also think of bats in a cave listening for other bats with their freaky ears.
By Marie Trudel URL on 07.17.2012
I am a blip on the screen. I feel the eyes watching, like sonar. Sweeping over and over again to measure my progress. Am I friendly or am I a foe?
Blip on a screen. Beep. Beep.
I increase my speed. I hone in with focus and move out of range. I wasn’t here to impress you in the first place.

I placed holds on all the copies of Batman Begins and The Dark Knight at the library. When one of them finally arrived, I was eager to get home and relive the adventure, expecting a thrilling time. What I wasn’t expecting was a small, handwritten note that I found inside the DVD case – “104 Locust St., Saturday, July 21st at 11pm.”
Beneath the dark, murky ocean, the sonar you transmit to me is all I have for a chance to survive. The strength within me is growing each minute at the thought of seeing you one last time before I part.
By Bekah URL on 07.17.2012
the sonar is a bar that we used to go to underage, all skinny and 16 teetering on our tall heels with our big hair, we would drink too much and dance and flirt with men. we thought that we would always be that beautiful and shiny
By bjack URL on 07.17.2012
It was like the flashing lights of a highway patrol car. With every flash of light, a beating within itself showed the uttermost hope for an undercover plot. Maybe a submarine, maybe a getaway plane. But all it showed was devilish longing. A longing to be part of something, a longing to have freedom.
By sonar on 07.17.2012
it is used to find fish it makes a beeping sound and is used on a boat or you could use it to find stuff underground like oil
By rhonda on 07.17.2012
Sonar is picking up a target sir. The ships sonar man conveyed to the captain. he had expected nothing in this area This was a secured area. There had been no enemy activity reported. He could tell by the sound signature as he reviewed the picture on the screen that this was a large ship. This was checked through the computer sir and we have no record of this type of sound signature.
By Rob Solomons on 07.17.2012
Oh the place where the sun shoots down onto earth. Oh wait, is it the time when I reach for my phone? Stop! Stop making those spaces! I don’t want any spaces to stop me from space, the place where there is no space for me. I am good here, son, are you?
By Melati on 07.17.2012
the sonar was far and i drowned
By alice on 07.17.2012
i think sharks use sonar. im totally unsure and this could totally be a guesstimate but i believe they use sonar. Actually, on second thought, it’s bats that use sonar to navigate throughout the darkness. yeah. bats.
By Jj Kakish on 07.17.2012
Not the sights
And not the sighs but
Reality through sound.
By pobear on 07.17.2012
bats use this to navigate i’m pretty sure. i believe sharks may, too, but this could be a total guesstimate. submarines use sonar, as well. that’s all i can think of regarding sonar. WHEN IS THIS ’60 SECONDS’ COUNTDOWN GOING TO END!??!
By Jj Kakish URL on 07.17.2012
Sound through liquid
Sound through air
To find things
Works either way

Sonar. Finding what animals like bats find when children throw stones at them, watching them swoop and stir in the air. We are like children.
By Justin Bruce on 07.17.2012
the illusion of the sunrise towards another star. here is comes and it leaves. goes home. sonar ringing with light and instability never breaking the ever flowing rays that consume me. me and you.
By marie stargala on 07.17.2012
My cat was staring at the sun, when suddenly it leapt out a sonar flare.. and it burned the fur off her skin.. I thought she was gonna die, but she she remained a alive. She looked in the mirror and hissed, because she couldn’t recognize herself any longer. She is a really smart cat. I gotin a shuttle and threw an iceburg at the sun, but it melted.
By ameliademore on 07.17.2012
she’s going down! i heard him scream through the radio. sad, and so glad i wasn’t the one on sonar duty. how much money had been spent to rehabilitate this whale, and now it dove for the deepest trench about in some sort of frenzied fit.
By nenana URL on 07.17.2012
The sonar waves brought about great expectations and immense feelings of anxiety for those looking upon the wreckage.
