When Odysseus and his crew passed by the mainland where the Cyclops lived, they were only going to stay for two days, but then out of curiosity, Odysseus wanted to see what kind of beast the Cyclops was which made them almost die. Odysseus didn 't even ask his crew whether they should do it or not because Odysseus made it seem like their opinion wasn’t important and didn 't matter. In the story, it says “Why not take these cheeses...Yet I refused, I wished to see the cave man, what he had to offer” (pg 818 L198-199). Odysseus deserved to return home from his journey after 20 years because it was mostly his fault. If Odysseus had told his crew about everything like why not to eat the cattle or to not open the bag of the unfavorable winds, his journey wouldn 't have taken 20 years.
In this soliloquy, Hamlet’s tone changes from being frustrated and irritated to sure, powerful, and bloodthirsty. Hamlet begins speaking in a frustrated manner, beating himself up that although there is so much around him that should motivate him to take revenge against his uncle, he has not. Shakespeare’s diction, such as “dull” (4.4.35) and “beast” (4.4.37) show Hamlet’s disgust with only living like an animal, just sleeping and eating.

However others argue saying that in Tibet there is no trees and grass therefore making it difficult to cremate the body, they also refuse to bury the body as they are scared of diseases spreading (YouTube, 2011, Tibetan sky burials)so they perform a sky burial. A man called rogyapa, or "breaker of bodies “will sets aside his blade that he used to decapitate the body and grabs a hammer to destroy the remaining bones for the vultures to eat. This is known as a sky burial or heavenly burial. To foreign eyes, this funeral ceremony may seem mean and rough or scary and depressing.

Tim’s expectations were not the case; instead Sam dies by being accused incorrectly of stealing his own cattle to teach other troops a lesson about how serious war is. The unecessary death of Sam inspires Tim to go neutral because Sam was not rewarded for valor and had no glory to his name. Tim doesn’t like that or want that so he chooses neither side of the
He did not try to overcome it and the fear growing more and more. After failed with the lion, he himself admitted “I bolted like a rabbit” (pg 3, par 11).
