Jim has a hair-ball, which has been taken from the “fourth stomach of an ox,” and uses it to fool other individuals into giving him money in exchange for information from the “spirit inside” of the hair-ball.

In the adventures of Huckleberry Finn written by Mark Twain, there are many ups and downs in the book that makes it very interesting and inspiring to read. People in the book inspired other characters to do certain things like Mrs. Watson to enslave Jim and Jim runs away. And Pap Finn who abuses his son Huck and has him run away. Pap Finn is the father of Huck Finn he’s an abusive father who is a southern white father and doesn’t own slaves but is racist and just terrible to African Americans. Pap influenced Huck to run away from his home because of a specific incident that happened in a shack.

He informs him on what the future holds, telling Huck that there are two women one rich and one poor standing by him and next to his father there are two angels a good and a bad one (Twain 13). Jim uses the hairball to prove that the footprints found in the snow belong to Huck’s dad.
Then Romeo sets out in his sorrow to an apothecary and says, “Come hither, man. I see that thou art poor: hold, there is forty ducats: let me have a dram of poison, such soon-speeding gear as will disperse itself through all the veins that the life-weary taker may fall dead and that the trunk may be discharged of breath as violently as hasty powder fired doth hurry from the fatal cannon 's womb.” These quotes show you that Romeo is planning to kill himself because of Juliet faking her death, which Romeo doesn’t know about. In the end, Romeo kills himself by poison and dies by Juliet and then Juliet stabs herself and dies when she finds Romeo dead.

Gru shows that he’s not a good person, he doesn’t do what is morally right, and he also will just come and tell you he’s a villain. Of course Gru learns how to love and learns how to do that right thing, but he just can't be considered a hero in this case.

Someone throw Pluto through his window while his house was on fire. This scared him by that he did not know who throw it in his window. In the text it states that “Upon the alarm of fire, this garden had been immediately filled by the crowd--by some one of whom the animal must have been cut from the tree and thrown, through an open window, into my chamber” this shows that he was really scared when someone throw his dead cat throw his window.

His insightful suggestion is mocked and he is considered crazy because it is easier for the boys to comprehend a tangible monster lingering over them that could be killed rather than to accept “mankind’s essential illness” (Golding 89) which cannot be changed nor destroyed. Simon is isolated from the others because of his atypical insight and he simply “cannot be understood, for he speaks the language of truth to the blind” (Talon). When Simon is killed, it symbolizes the death of goodness in man, much like Christ: both are the epitome of good being destroyed as the consequence of man’s sins. People believe in Satan because they cannot comprehend the severity of man’s evil nature and would rather blame
The thrill of being a Zamboni operator can only be felt by a person that has driven a Zamboni. The unorthodox nature of my job has given me the push to show people the work I do.
