Ned is stubborn to the point of stupidity; when told “The next visitor who calls on you could bring you bread and cheese and the milk of the poppy for your pain … or he could bring you Sansa’s head.” (Martin 637) Ned chose to nobly stand for his beliefs which resulted not only in great suffering to his family but also his untimely death.

Bloom used the fallacy of appeals to emotion on page 160 when he was explaining how at first it was extremely difficult for him to throw food away, yet, at the end of three months of working with produce, it became easier for him to throw the food away. He is appealing to the readers emotions by showing that he felt bad for what he did, but why did he still throw food away if he felt so bad? Why did he not tell the manager that the food should not be thrown away? He is making the reader also feel bad, because he feels bad, which makes the reader forgive Bloom for what he did when at that point in time he should have said that food should not be wasted. Since he did not stand up to his manager about the food waste, he should have included in

As they say, “A man has got to do what a man has got to do.” Considering how poorly fed and malnourished the soldiers are, Kat and Paul had to resort to stealing to receive the nutrients they required to endure the tiresome war. Some may argue that this was out of pure greed and selfishness, but one has to consider that the soldiers endure Hell and back, if they make it back, and all they ask is for is a decent meal. Is that still selfish? So yes, if I were in Paul’s position, I would think about my well being, and myself understanding the pain and suffering I experience on a daily
