  • A Lesson From Oliver - 5,261 words
    ... had little wish to draw him into this conversation. I decided to change the subject quickly. "Coincidentally, yes sir. Why I'm calling, though, is to inquire about the number of outboard motors that have gone missing since last week." "Pardon me?" The tone of his voice took a sudden sinister turn that sent a twinge through my bladder. Like the rookie I was, I had made some as yet unrecognized blunder. I felt the strong urge to conclude the interview immediately, but it was too late. He knew my name. He knew my brother's name. He knew why I'd called. He knew everything. I'd have to bluff past my own ignorance. "Well, I was wondering if the police suspected some kind of theft ring being i ...

  • Beowulf - 733 words
    Beowulf The Beginning of the End From the depths of the deepest ocean I see an object falling from the water's smooth surface. Perhaps it is a haughty human that has come to repay the death of an auspicious friend that I feasted on. Or even better, maybe Beowulf has come complacently into the waters, which I have ruled for half a century. Yes, it is Beowulf. He has come begging for revenge for the death of the closest friend of his precious King Hrothgar. I will show him who has controlled this sea for the last 50 years, and who will continue to control it for eternity. I give Beowulf an extremely warm welcome.

  • Great Gatsby Thesis - 1,756 words
    Great Gatsby Thesis Fitzgerald's dominant theme in The Great Gatsby focuses on the corruption of the American Dream. By analyzing high society during the1920s through the eyes of narrator Nick Carraway, the author reveals that the American Dream has transformed from a pure ideal of security into a convoluted scheme of materialistic power. In support of this message, Fitzgerald highlights the original aspects as well as the new aspects of the American Dream in his tragic story to illustrate that a once impervious dream is now lost forever to the American people. The foundation qualities of the American Dream depicted in The Great Gatsby are perseverance and hope. The most glorified of these c ...

  • Hmmmm - 502 words
    Hmmmm annon Almost every day of my life I am bombarded with concepts that are sometimes so incredible, my jaw drops and I am left in dazed wonderment. Sometimes the things I learn are so 'out there' that I ask myself 'why?' Three things that I always felt were inexplicable was the rise of the neo-Nazi party in Germany. The 'I'm the victim' mentality of incarcerated inmates. And finally, why many people won't accept responsibility for their actions. Firstly, one of the worst things that ever happened to Germany was the rise of the Nazi political party. The Nazi's brought out the worst of humanities aspects in a culture that is normally very friendly and open. So why are the new Nazi's being a ...

  • Independent Study Project On Role Playing Games - 1,994 words
    Independent Study Project on Role Playing Games What are Role Playing Games? Quite simply, RPG's are games where YOU assume the role of a different person. Then, you with other adventurers, must play that role in the setting in which the game takes place. Playing and RPG is much like acting, only you don't know what is going to come next. RPG's utilize at least 3 players. One, called the Game Master, or Dungeon Master, is the person who runs the game. He is "the umpire," who decides where the players are going and who knows everything about the adventure. The GM is a storyteller, who is relaying the story to the players, who make the decisions. RPG's are like one big Choose-Your-Own-Adventur ...
