MGM Hotel Fire November 21st 1980 marks one of the worst hotel fires in U.S. history. Today the MGM Grand fire is number 17 on the list of most deadly building fires of all time ( ). The incident was horrific and could have been easily contained if early detection devices, and fire suppression systems were already in place as firefighters had mentioned to the ariteches before construction was complete: also if the construction of electrical components were properly installed. Many lives were lost subsequently due to this fire but important requirements for hotels did come to fruition because of this horrific incident. Which certainly makes this day significant, and marked Nevada as a leader in fire safety regulations and codes.
I was crying because my adrenaline was rushing, I have never been so scared in my life. As we got in the truck my body was stinging like crazy, I was stung everywhere. My feet hurt the worst. When I took my boot off bees started flying out of them, that when Christopher slammed on the brakes and we all jumped out of the truck. I threw my boots at the bees and eventually they all died down.
The Great Chicago Fire of 1871 was one of the greatest catastrophes in the history of the United States history. The holocaust burned from Sunday, October 8, to early Tuesday, October 10, 1871. Within hours the great city of Chicago was destroyed. Before the fire broke out on Sunday night, October 8, there had been a drought causing everything to be dry and extremely flammable. The city of Chicago was so flammable because almost the entire city was made out of wood.
The whole house turned into chaos after Chanticleer was captured. The poor woman and her two daughters along with their animals came rushing to get their rooster back, but the fox was quick to make his escape. There was no way they could save Chanticleer, but ironically Chanticleer was able to break free from the fox’s mouth by tricking the fox. “The fox replying, ‘Faith, it shall be done!’Opened his mouth and spoke. The nimbled bird, breaking away upon the uttered word , flew high into the treetop on the spot (350-353, p.109)” This is another irony because there was no way Chanticleer could escape from the fox, but Chanticleer tricked fox by flattering him like what the fox did it to him.
It turned round and round a couple of times, then we went down as fast as a bald eagle trying to catch it’s prey. Then we went straight fast of course. Nick was screaming so loud that it distracted me from looking we were going. I tried not to throw up but it was hard.
Theo opened his eyes, everything looked different, he looked at his hands, only to find out he became a bird himself. Furious, he and Neiva began to argue when they fell off the balcony and onto the party. Chaos ensues as they are chased away to the forest by Christopher’s dog. Neiva and Theo had a rough night as birds, they had to learn how to fly properly, and every time they made a mistake, they would plummet down to the rough hard ground. They had to escape the predators chasing them, and they were forced into hiding in a tree trunk.
I acted extremely fast without even thinking. That all happened at a blink which surprised me a little. I heard screams as I grabbed my notebook and rushed up the hill. The day was May 18, 1964, and I was walking towards the burning church still pondering about Kennedy’s assassination six months ago. The tragic event made me so lightheaded and disoriented it’s hard for me to even tell what’s fact or fairytale.
Another example when Nat was fighting the birds, “He seized a blanket from the nearest bed and, using it as a weapon flung it to the right and left about him in the air. He felt the thud bodies, heard fluttering of wings, but they were not to be defeated. This show that man cannot take the punishment
You have four hundred meters left!” And that’s exactly what I did and my body was not prepared for it. I went down a slight hill and used gravity to sprint as hard as I could to the finish. With about two hundred and fifty meters to go, I started to feel dizzy and began dry heaving. This was the point when everything went into slow motion: my legs felt like spaghetti that could not possibly hold the weight of my body and when I looked out at the people around me I felt like I was at the center of a carousel and everyone was spinning around me. After that, all I can remember is my hands slamming into the thick, damp dirt trying to break my fall and then everything was a blur until I was walking back to our team tent.
They were all pleased when they found out it was a baby boy. Soon after, Wang Lung purchased red sugar for his wife and child, fifty eggs and painted them red, and lastly he got incense for the gods. After giving birth, O-Lan went straight back to working in the fields. As they worked in the fields, they knew that people would pay higher prices for grain in the winter, so they began to save the silver they have earned in a hole in the wall. For their son’s one month anniversary, they held a celebration with red boiled eggs.
It doesn’t stop. Then the first tree falls. You realize this is the time to run. You run towards the helicopter, taking out the obsidian rock, just in case. You hear Phil yelling behind you but his words are slurred and you know he is more and more under the influence of the crab.
