To illustrate the characters being affected by sanity: “ere we will eat our meal in fear, and sleep in the affliction of these terrible dreams that share us nightly” (3.2). With this being stated one can see Macbeth and his wife already losing sleep and wondering about the dangers that lie ahead. Their sanity is becoming borderline to insanity and just waiting like a ticking time bomb to explode. “Terrible dreams that shake us nightly”: the guilt of killing Duncan was too overbearing that now Macbeth must rely on fate that allows his sanity to loosen and become insane. Sanity is the only thing that Macbeth had control over for a while, before the murder: “will all great Neptune’s ocean wash this blood clean from my hand?” (2.2).
"Born the Hard Way" In 2017, Budweiser aired a commercial during the super bowl titled "Born the Hard Way". This commercial sent a powerful message regarding immigration and the hardships they went through while they were migrating to the United States of America. The commercial shows the story of how Anheuser-Busch came to be. It starts off in a bar with two men sitting there, one of the men looks to the other and says "You don 't look like you 're from around here." The man looks up and it goes into a flashback.
Multiple “witnesses” or people who overheard about the robbery and murder are convicted or unreliable they all wanted someone to blame and someone to shorten their time in jail. My last reason is his attitude towards jail and how he is scared. “I still can’t go to the bathroom in front of everyone.” he writes. He is so scared that he can’t use the bathroom in front of those guys. He hates it there, “I can hardly, think about the movie,I hate this pace so much.
Quiet Kill He was astounded at how far the ripples of the past had extended into the present and at how Coz remained consistently inconsistent. In one last desperate attempt, to topple the barrel and at righting the ship, Wormwood yelled, “First of all, I’ve been called worse things by better people. Second, first chance I get, gonna cut your guts out then slice your throat. You think I’m joking, just you wait. If I were you, I’d sleep with one eye open jack.” It was obvious losing was a crushing, devastating blow.
Reeva was an activist for domestic violence but, she was sadly taken by something she stood whole heartily against. As Oscar’s fame began to rise be was more obnoxious towards everyone surrounding him and began to get more violent. Others couldn’t stay alongside with Pistorius in the same area as a roommate told an interviewer stating that “I moved out. Oscar is always shouting at the people on the phone” (10th paragraph page 14) Oscar’s behavior caused many to see him as an embarrassment to himself and to the world and his country. He began to drink more heavily, and changed from what his friends call “The good old lads” (10th paragraph page 14) to the “Southern Jo’Burg tattooed skinhead-gang type” (10th paragraph page 14).
Eric played one of the most appalling roles in the chain of events, by taking advantage of Eva Smith whilst in a drunken state after leaving the Palace Bar one november night. Not only did his actions that night destroy any dignity Eva Smith felt she had left, but also led her pregnancy and the worries that came with it. “I’m not very clear about it, but afterwards she told me she didn’t want me to go in but that - well, I was in that state when a chap easily turns nasty - and I threatened to make a row” (page 51). His was in a drunken state, due to being upper-class and considerably selfish; and he definitely did not care about Eva Smith as he saw her as beneath him, due to her being lower-class. After the Inspector left, those present began blaming Eric for Eva’s death, Eric shouted to the whole family, “And I say the girl’s dead and we all helped to kill her- and that’s what matters” (page 65).
She did not agree with his decision so she tried to track down of she thought was Tom but instead behind the wheel was Daisy and in the passenger seat was Gatsby. Before the car could stop Myrtle hit the windshield and died on impact. “The “death car” as the newspapers called it, it didn’t stop; it came out of the gathering darkness, wavered tragically for a moment, and then disappeared around the next bend” (Fitzgerald, 137). Minutes later Tom, Nick, and Jordan followed behind. Hearing all the pandemonium they joined the crowd to witness an uproar of people engulfing Myrtle’s lifeless body in George’s shop.
I slugged down my fourth shot in about 10 minutes, the bourbon going down hard and fiery down my throat. The stale smell of cigarette smoke and spilled beer wafting into my nostrils, I rubbed my hand through my hair. What a day it had been. Setting my glass down, I motioned for the bartender to fill it up again. He walked hesitantly over to me, the question of if I had had enough hanging on his lips and yet no words coming as he was about to say it.
