“You got to think Ponyboy” is one of my favorites quotes to say after my parents died. I have two jobs and also to watch out for Ponyboy and Sodapop not to go to a boys home. I am the oldest of the greasers. I slapped Ponyboy to tell him to never be late again. Also I slapped him because I can not call the police because they will put Soda and him in a boys home and they would never see me again.
But I would not listen, though it would have been better, wishing to see the giant himself, and test his hospitality". This quote is reworded a tad bit, so you can understand the full meaning of what Odysseus meant in this saying. Sadly, this choice resulted in six of his men dying. In addition, in Odyssey of book ten, Odysseus does not communicate with his men about the contents of the bag he receives from Aeolus. Odysseus falls asleep, his men become curious, open the bag just when their ship was in sight of their homeland, and then they are blown back to Aeolus' land.
Odysseus did not want to go war because his son, Telemachus, was just born but he went anyways. Odysseus’s abyss occurred when he sees the prophecy and saw that his mom died and everyone was still grieving. In The Odyssey there were many initiations but the most significant one was, when Odysseus and his men find the cyclops and they are not able to escape. To enable the men to escape Odysseus gets the cyclops drunk, then stabs him in the eye, and then escapes riding on the bottom of the sheep. Finally his return was when Odysseus returns to Ithica he finds that other men are trying to take over his throne.
Odysseus and the crew arrive at the island of Thrinacia and Odysseus strictly states to not eat Helios’s cattle, but as Odysseus go’s off to pray the crew members disobey. They were starving, so Eurylochus second in command “[urges], and his shipmates cheered again /… once they prayed, they slaughtered and skinned the cattle” (12.379-386). Odysseus’s crewmates were strictly warned not to eat the cattle, but starvation and temptation took over leading them to their death. They were all immediately killed by Zues’s scorching lightning bolt, but Odysseus lives and is now detained greatly because he does not have a crew.
She decided not to tell Paul because the doctors said that he might not remember why he had to wear glasses. Paul’s reaction was that he got really mad at her for not telling him and not doing anything to Erik. “Am I such a stupid idiot fool that I stared at a solar eclipse for an hour and blinding myself?
Another example of a bad decision Odysseus made was when he made his crew stay in polyphemus’ cave, when they wanted to take the food and leave. Here is an example of someone on his crew discussing this, “Let 's make away with the cheeses, then come back-/ hurry, drive the lambs and kids from the pens/ to our swift ship, put out to sea at once!/ But I would not give way-” (9. 252-255). If Odysseus was a good leader he wouldn’t have risked anything happening to his crew, he would have just taken the food and left. As a result of this bad choice, many men in Odysseus’ crew were killed and eaten by Polyphemus.
How do you like the beating that we gave you…” (L. 390-392). This piece of evidence has two parts on how Odysseus endangers his men. The outcome of Odysseus’ outburst is a majority of his men dying and being cursed by Cyclops’s father, Poseidon, the God of the Sea. This shows how Odysseus bragging and his arrogance leads his men and him to danger.

He traveled all around the United States for two years, and he finally thought going to Alaska would be the best thing for him because it's the most isolated place that he could think of. This turns out to be a fatal mistake of the character. All throughout the book, Krakauer talks about Chris's struggle to isolate himself from society and does everything in his power to stay away from any intimate relationships. Even though Chris's main purpose for leaving was to stay away from everyone and be alone, Chris finds himself meeting and actually liking new people on his way to Alaska. Leaving like he did Chris cut all ties to his family, friends and towns people that he had known previously, so he was forced to talk to the people he hitchhikes with.
One day when the townspeople got tired of losing their water, they walked up the long side of the mountain and confronted Johnnit. The people of Wrightriangle told Johnnit that he had two days to stop stealing their water or he would be banished from Mt. Potenuse and be carried off to a faraway island. Johnnit did not know what to do; he hadn 't stole a thing in his life and loved his mountain, so he decided to figure out what was happening to the water in Wrightriangle.

Others might think this because her family had not gotten a share of the profits from Henrietta 's cells. However Henrietta herself did not face adversity, but her family had to face the adversity because they found out what scientists did with her cells twenty years after her death, and had never seen any money from it. Also all Lacks had to do was die to face adversity, while Mawson had to walk through an endless wasteland without food or warmth to make it back to his camp. Mawson also had to eat his own dog and tape the sole of his foot back on just to survive in the antarctic. Another reason why people might think Lacks faced more adversity is because she was poor and faced racial discrimination.
If your family is starving but the laws told you that you cannot go out and get food, what do you do? A similar question was running circles in Tommy Pikok Sr. and John Nusunginya’s head when the law told him he could not provide food for his family. In 1961 the Duck-In began when the Migratory Bird Treaty was signed. This treaty outlawed hunting from March to September when the birds were only available for harvest in Alaska. As a result, the hungry Iñupiaq people in Barrow decided to pay no mind to the law and protested.
