He had no common sense, and he had no business going into Alaska with his Romantic silliness. He made a lot of mistakes based on arrogance. I don’t admire him at all for his courage nor his noble ideas. Really, I think he was just plain crazy,” shows that Shaun believes Chris had no common sense in his doing for leaving society for the wild. I agree with Callarman’s position of thinking “ he had no common sense” and that he was “bright and Ignorant” because Chris thinks he did not have much to offer in his society, ditched all his possessions to take a trip into the Alaskan Wilderness and did not have much common sense or survival skills.
How can I know that after we are done at this camp I will get the supplies I need to survive if I didn’t get them now? I will quit because of the lack of supplies for soldiers at Camp Forge. Third, the cold weather has caused me to freeze and the smoky air has messed up my senses. According to Document C, the air inside the huts is very smoky, but cannot be let outside because of the lack of opening and the cold air. This means that soldiers are constantly breathing in smoky air, which is not good for their health.
Ponyboy is also faced with conflict after Johnny’s death. For a while, he refuses to accept that Johnny is dead and is so in denial that he believes he’s the one that killed Bob. When Randy visits Ponyboy’s home, he upsets Ponyboy by mentioning that Johnny would’ve been in trouble with the law if he were alive. Ponyboy objects and says, “I had the knife. I killed Bob.” The confusion he experiences is his way of handling the grief of his loss.
From his parents, he barely gained the warmth of being in a complete family. As Ponyboy said, “His father was always beating him up, and his mother ignored him, except when she was hacked off at something, and then you could hear her yelling at him clearly down at our house. He hates that worse than getting whipped…If it hadn’t been for the gang, Johnny would never have known what love and affection are” (Hinton P.12), we can clearly known that Johnny’s parents were extraordinarily violent to Johnny. Due to the charac- teristic of Johnny’s father, the hereditary gene of violence affected fixed some of Johnny’s personal- ity. Also, Johnny was only the one who serves as a vent to his parents’ anger.
For example, this January, a boy named”....Hayden Porter, a 15-year-old freshman at a high school in Ohio, took his life”(https://www.cnn.com/2018/01/16/health/ohio-suicide-cluster/index.html). This is very selfish because killing oneself is so wrong and so heartbreaking for everyone that loves him/her. In his defence, he killed himself probably from bullying from other people, hence proving another reason why people are terrible at heart, but that should not give anyone the right to take their and only life away from themself.In another example, in the Diary of Anne
The passage Last Child in the Woods by Richard Louv was written because of his stand on the separation between people and nature. Through crafty thoughts and examples he mainly directed it towards parents of our generation. No doubt that he thinks that all this new technology is changing our childhoods in a bad way. For example children of these days are plugged in most of the time to a screen of some sort. This is decreasing our children's knowledge of creativity and taking in the beauty of nature.
Trevor Noah’s mother tried so hard to save him from reality, but it could never be enough as many dangerous people threatened his life. In the first chapter of this memoir, Trevor tells of how he had to jump out of a bus and run for his life with his mother; if the bus driver caught him, he may have died that day (). The environment that Trevor grew up in was unsafe specifically because many men in South Africa abused their power, one of these men was his stepfather Abel. Particularly, Abel used to beat Trevor and caused him and his mother physical and emotional pain. In addition, Abel spent all of his money on alcohol, and he shot Trevor’s mother.
Compared to my normal life, the week-long camp was very different in terms of the people along with my surroundings. These difference made me uncomfortable as I had no leadership, outgoingness, and cultural awareness. However, the differences in the camp allowed me to become a leader, more of a social person, and more culturally aware. Travelling into the unknown is a big risk, but people still need to reach out and try new things. Otherwise, they will be stuck in their “hobbit hole”
But on the other hand most people in our class struggled to find original and interesting ideas. This made me wonder if the education in our modern era is really collect. In our society when we go to an educational facility we are told to: “follow the rules”. I felt that this “common sense” itself is limiting children all over the world of thinking flexibly. For example, some government officers and parents say that every thing is dangerous as: ”the ocean is dangerous, playgrounds are dangerous, games are dangerous”Because of this, a lot of things are getting banned and following the rules is becoming more and more stricter.
He has a bad reputation that has to do with being evil and supernatural. The town of Maycomb has made up superstitions about him, they blame every mishap or misfortune, whether it is proven otherwise or not. There are also stories that are passed from family to family. Some include Boo stabbing his father in the leg and winding up in prison. Further tales involve him being in a gang, having powers, and being dead and haunting everyone.
“Me ‘n Simon built the last one over there. That’s why it’s tottery.” (80) Ralph has a meeting to talk about how the group is not doing well. He talks about how he and Simon had to build the shelter for the boys because they had left their jobs to play. The boys weren’t committed with their jobs and that was what made Ralph upset. Ralph was building the shelter for the littluns because they were afraid of the beast.
The brother is to blame for doodles death. Doodle was a disabled young child with a selfish brother that only looks out for himself. His brother was ashamed to be with or around him. One of the biggest reasons wanted him dead is because he was embarrassed to be around him. The three reasons I believe that the brother wanted to kill doodle was he was embarrassed, he pushed him to hard, and he was selfish.
The thought of sitting down having a meal at this place, and eating someone else’s food residue does not sound appealing to me. There were minor violations too, such as no beard restraints being worn on dishwashing employees, employee jackets being stored on top of sacks of food, and dishes not being air dried before being place with the other clean dishes. If Texas Roadhouse does not step up and start implementing changes, I will have no choice but to find another steakhouse. I will definitely not eat there
The scots might have thought they had researched Darien enough but when they arrived they found it very different from their expectations. For example the ground was inhabitable, a marshy landscape covered by jungle, so the colonists found it very hard to grow food, which meant they were weak and illness was caught easier. Another thing the Scots failed to research was the climate, a hot, humid jungle climate with temperatures reaching over 40°C, meaning the scots weren’t prepared for Darien’s hot climate. Another significant reason for the failure of the Darian Scheme was the amount of illness being spread across Darien. The Scots might have been able to live of scraps of food but there was no way to stop illness spreading across Darien.
Rob could have easily made it down to safety, but Doug couldn’t, and Rob didn’t want to leave his client stranded on the mountain. Andy Harris eventually got some oxygen up to Rob, but by the time he got it up Doug was dead and Rob was in terrible condition and too frostbitten to descend. Eventually, Rob perished, succumbing to the cold. This led to Jon becoming mentally stronger because he was without a guide, so he was forced to think more independently, and be more of a leader. He realized that even the most experienced climbers aren’t immune to the wrath of the mountain.
