In both of the stories we see that the same thing happen to the main characters which was they were both transformed into vermin. The transformations were different because one turned into a beetle and the other turned into a fly. The biggest difference between the two is that Brundle had a very slow and painful transformation whereas Samsa’s transformation was quick and easy and just over night. Seth Brundle deserved to be turned into a vermin because he was attempting to change science and play the role of god through his experiments, whereas Samsa did not deserve to become a vermin because he was an innocent person and was only attempting to live a normal life. Because Seth Brundle tried to play the role of god through his experiments he consequently was turned into a fly.
For a moment he had forgotten all about the general manager.” This is not the only case in which Gregor chooses his family over work.

Simon puts on this air by sneaking off to his hideaway and being the only one to talk to the Lord of the Flies. He heard creepy things like “I’m warning you.

Another sure sign of the family’s survival was Bo’s obsession with water and its ‘contaminated’ taste. Bo’s constant rejection of water had accumulated glasses of water throughout the house, and had led to the survival of the family. The movie shows that the clear way to kill the Alien is to attack with water. Without the abundance of water around the home, Uncle Merrill may have not been able to defeat the Alien with just his baseball bat. Through these actions, it is proven that water is an Alien’s enemy.

Consequently, the monster’s curiosity for human nature also leads to detrimental effects on his life. After the monster is first abandoned by his creator, Victor Frankenstein, he eventually attempts to learn the ways of human society. His attempts at assimilation are seen when he says, “I improved, however, sensibly in this science, but not sufficiently to follow up any kind of conversation, although I applied my whole mind to the endeavour, for I easily perceived that, although I eagerly longed to discover myself to the cottagers, I ought not to make the attempt until I had first become master of their language…” (Shelley 101). The monster learned about the human’s way of life through watching a group of people living in a cottage. He was curious about their culture so he stayed nearby and listened to their cultures in order to learn their ways.
Berry then goes on to explain how amazing underwear-eating bacteria would be. He states, “I am picturing a utopian future wherein,when a man’s briefs get dirty, they will simply dissolve from his body, thereby freeing him from the chore of dealing with his soiled underwear via the labor-intensive, time-consuming method he now uses, namely, dropping them on the floor.” (2.)
