The Adventures of Huckleberry Finn by Mark Twain I. Discover Moses and the Bulrushers (pg 1) Huckleberry Finn is kept by a widow who provides for his schooling and life necessities but he hates being mannered and wants to runaway all the time. The widow’s sister – “a tolerable slim old maid” – teachers him the Bible and Huck soon finds it pointless to learn about “dead people” but would only stand all these miseries because he wants to join Tom Sawyer’s gang in the robbing business (2). II. Our Gang’s Dark Oath (pg 4) Tom Sawyer calls Huckleberry Finn out and they are almost caught by the slave Jim, who is famous “because he got stuck up on account of having seen the devil and been rode by witches” (6).
This differs from “sea Oak” which is about a young male stripper who plays the male role in the family, they live in poor projects where there is a lot of turmoil. The happy go lucky narrator is “haunted” by his aunt, who when alive worked double shifts and never complained, she never even got married because she had to work, however when she came back to haunt the narrator she was very nasty “You , mister, are going to start showing your cock. You go up to a lady, if she’ll pay to see it, I’ll make a thumbprint on the forehead. I’ll try to get you five a day, at twenty bucks a pop. So a hundred bucks a day.” (Saunders, 112).
Grandpa Bobby tells his story: some people offered him a job smuggling emeralds from South America, but later double-crossed him, tried to kill him, and stole his beloved fishing boat. Ever since then, he's been trying to track them down and get back his boat. It hurt to think that everyone thought he was dead, but it was necessary. First, he didn't want the guys he was looking for to know he was still alive; second, he also knew that if his son found out, he would, true to form, drop everything and rush down to South America without another thought. Grandpa Bobby was in a bar in a small fishing village in Colombia when he saw Paine's interview on the satellite TV.
Granddaddy finally had to order them out. Bambara exclusively uses indirect characterization to develop the characters Smilin’, Granny, and Granddaddy, in order to convey the theme. The antagonist, Smilin’, shows that he is arrogant, disrespectful and uncaring when he trespassed unto Granny’s land and took photos without her permission. Smile’s name has an ironic double meaning. He always smiles just like a salesperson who tries to sell an item smiles.

"Imagine that! Being able to just pee right in the ocean!" There are also meaningful pee scenes in Saving Private Ryan (while the other soldiers talk about missing their mothers, Hanks reminisces about a kid who used to piss Vs on everyone's jackets) and The Terminal (his character must wait for an important phone call despite having to pee, like, super bad). But Hanks' crowning achievement has to be The Green Mile. In 1999, Tom Hanks was arguably as big as any movie star had ever been.

Robby Evans Miss Cave Research Writing 13 June 2008 Stay Classy, Will “If you’re not first, you’re last.” These are the infamous words of Will Ferrell, who plays Ricky Bobby in his laugh-out-loud movie, “Talladega Nights.” That is just one of the many quotes people like to repeat from one of the funniest actors in show business today. Will Ferrell worked his way up from a comedy sketch player on “Saturday Night Live” to one of the most famous actors in the world. Surprisingly, Will graduated from the University of Southern California with a degree in Sports Information and did not plan on going into acting. Today, however, he can be seen running around half-naked or getting attacked by grizzly bears and a variety of other animals in his many comedy films.

Achilles was brave and confident and went about killing like it was nothing he unlike hector was no royalty he was just a great warrior the best warrior that is also unlike Hector Achilles fought for no flag he fought for no country and he definitely did not fight for a king.

Achilles fought for none of this Achilles fought for him
