Their powerful teeth extend outside their lips. Naked mole rat lips can close behind their teeth, preventing dirt from entering the mouth. Naked mole rats can run just as fast backwards as they can forward. Naked mole rats are unable to maintain their body temperature, so they will huddle together to keep warm or lay in tunnels near the surface. Naked mole rats live in colonies led by a dominant rat which is the queen.
Also, these worms are invertebrates, meaning they possess no vertebral column/backbone. Furthermore, planarians, as well as earthworms are scavengers, a type of decomposer. Planarians eat dead or decaying material, and earthworms eat soil, rotting leaves, and other organic material. Additionally, without our lovely decomposer friends, our world will become a huge dump, which again is an advantage. Lastly, if you haven’t noticed, the long cylindrical and no legged animals are part of the enormous worm family!
At the very moment they hear the beautiful, seductive singing the Sirens have weaved their spell upon them. You can tell from the lyrics of the song, Go to sleep little baby; You, Me, and the devil makes three, that the sirens are devious and dangerously seductive, and they’re chugging the gang alcohol, which is slowing makes them fall asleep and turns Pete into a toad. That’s ironic to Circe from “The Odyssey” but instead of getting drugged, Pete was drunk, and not turning into a pig but a toad. The Sirens scene is obvious ironic to Homer’s “The Odyssey” because Odysseus had his men put beeswax in their so they wouldn’t hear the singing. So I think Ulysses and the gang falling under the Siren’s spell helps visualize the outcome if Odysseus hadn’t thought of that smart tactic.

The Fools songs, riddles and jokes are a source of comic relief, used to break up the intensity of scenes. The Fool appears to have a deceptively simple part in the play when in actual fact his role is of key significance. The Fool and Lear have a fascinating relationship throughout the play. Lear seems to depend on his Fool increasingly to be his voice of reason or his conscience, because he reminds Lear of all his mistakes and manipulates his feelings into realising them. This is a great irony as the King who is supposed to be wise is in-fact a fool, yet the Fool himself is full of
By doing this, he manages to calm the storm of a crowd. From this point he starts with the argumentation. By planting doubt of what Brutus has said, this gives a huge advantage for Antony with the crowd. Antony creates mixed feelings in the crowd by using a pun on “grievous” and “grievously”.

Isben wants to highlight how crude not having equality for women is, especially when a portion of them are smarter than a portion of the opposite gender and vice versa. He shows Nora’s husband in an attempt to emphasize the negative part of the non-feminism side. He shows him as a belittling man to his “squanderbird” and how he treats her with little respect. (A Doll’s House) He does so by using little nicknames that remind her of problems she has while she retains herself from pointing out his flaws. Although, it is understandable that she doesn’t point out his flaws with all the lies and guilt she has stacked up on her marriage.
