Rainsford could have stayed hidden for the three days and general Zaroff wouldn’t have hunted him after the three days. In the story General Zaroff stated “if I do not find you by midnight on the third day my sloop will place you on the mainland near a town”. If the general said this why would he have to kill him if he was going to place him on the mainland? It was basically a deal that they made that Rainsford didn’t come through on. Rainsford thought that if he got caught by General Zaroff that he was going to get killed, but General Zaroff never said what was going to happen if he got caught.
It did make him smart for a short period of time, but it eventually wore off and led to problems that Charlie did not have before. On June 10th, Charlie writes, “... Algernon died two days ago … His brain had decreased in weight” (Keyes, 302) and “Motor activity impaired. I keep tripping over things” (Keyes, 303). After Algernon’s death and autopsy, it reveals that his brain had shrunk and smoothed out. Charlie doesn’t want that to happen to him, but he knows it is inevitable.
The first reason i’m grounded is I brought my phone outside when i’m supposed too. I’m not supposed to take my phone outside because it might get lost. Also i’m not supposed to take it outside because someone might steal it. That is the first reason i’m grounded. My second and final reason is I lost my phone.
More specifically, I believe that gun violence will always be an issue whether they are banned or not. If someone plans on hurting someone, they will not care about rules. For example, Guns are very easy for people to buy, but how is the seller going to know what they plan to do with it. It is not like they are going to say that they are going to kill someone with it. Therefore, I conclude that banning guns is not worth it because people who want to use them for negative reasons will even if they are banned.
There's certain benefits to thinking this way though. It's very important to keep one's own happiness and well being at the forefront of their mind. People should not be expected to constantly cater to others. Selflessness is completely overrated. Equality is not wrong to want something for himself, especially after servicing others his whole life.
Multiple people live in certain environments where they need these types of weapons to protect them. By banning assault weapons this might ruin their entire life. On the “New York Post”, they state banning of assault weapons is nothing but a symbolism and will not be a difference. The article states this because even if assault weapons were to ban, there will still be handguns and all types of firearms out there. Americans who had an assault weapon before, will still continue to have it.
The second amendment states that there should and will be no possession of firearms for anyone with a felony and/or a mental illness. Yes, the second amendment protects individual gun ownership but is it not obvious that people should not sell firearms or weapons to anyone that seems challenged or incapable of keeping their community safe with a gun? Amendments of course make your liberty excessively known but it should not get to the point that people should fear getting shot while out walking late at night or doing daily usual things in their
The other argument is not so much a rationale, as merely an explanation: performance enhancing drugs should be banned because society says they should be banned. The democratic nature of sports requires that sports ban performance enhancing drugs. But it should be noted that these bans are not without costs and harms to innocent athletes, and these costs should be kept in mind when evaluating whether to maintain, expand, or eliminate doping policies. When all’s said and done, however, sports leagues are doing the right thing by prohibiting the use of steroids and other performance enhancing drugs by their athletes, at least until additional medical consensus is
Is there really a need to be married anymore? Does marriage actually benefit your relationship, or is it an outdated institution that we’ll be better off without? In this speech, I’ll convince you that marriage is a thing of the past, and that society’s views on marriage have changed enough in the past decade that marriage really isn’t necessary anymore. One of the main purposes of marriage is to maintain a permanent relationship, but nowadays marriage doesn’t lead to a permanent relationship due to the increase of divorce rates. In the US, 41-50% of first marriages end in divorce, and the average marriage duration is 8 years.
