You don’t know about me, without you have read a book by the name of The Adventures of Tom Sawyer; but that ain’t no matter. That book was made by Mr. Mark Twain, and he told the truth, mainly.
There was things which he stretched, but mainly he told the truth.
That is nothing. I never seen anybody but lied one time or another, without it was Aunt Polly, or the widow, or maybe Mary. Aunt
Polly—Tom’s Aunt Polly, she is—and Mary, and the Widow Douglas is all told about in that book, which is mostly a true book, with some stretchers, as I said before.
Now the way that the book winds up is this: Tom and me found the money that the robbers hid in the cave, and it made us rich. We got six thousand dollars apiece—all gold. It was an awful sight of money when it was piled up. Well, Judge Thatcher he took it and putit out at interest, and it fetched us a dollar a day apiece all the year round—more than a body could tell what to do with. The Widow
Douglas she took me for her son, and allowed she would sivilize me; but it was rough living in the house all the time, considering how dismal regular and decent the widow was in all her ways; and so when I couldn’t stand it no longer I lit out. I got into my old rags and my sugar-hogshead again, and was free and satisfied. But Tom Sawyer he hunted me up and said he was going to start a band of robbers, and
I might join if I would go back to the widow and be respectable. So
I went back.
The widow she cried over me, and called me a poor lost lamb, and she called me a lot of other names, too, but she never meant no harm by it. She put me in them new clothes again, and I couldn’t do nothing but sweat and sweat, and feel all cramped up. Well, then, the old thing commenced again. The widow rung a bell for supper, and you had to come to time. When you got to the table you couldn’t go right to eating, but you had…...

Adventures in Fugawiland

...Adventures in Fugawiland Fugawiland: a land full of hardworking hunters, dedicated mothers, learning children, many animals, and lots and lots of land. Fugawiland is in between the border of Lake Superior and the Highlands. There were 25 different sites in Fugawiland, but we were only given information on 10 different sites. The areas in which the citizens of Fugawiland lived permanently were either by the shore or by a river in sites F, Y, R (shore), P, I, W, and C (river). About twice as many people lived in sites by the shoreline compared to people who lived by the river. Site F contained the largest amount of Fugawilanders, about 45 people. A way to estimate the number of people living at a site is to multiply the number of houses by five because the huts in Fugawiland likely housed 4 to 6 people-leaving the average number of people per hut at five. Sites Y and R were tied for the second to most sites with the largest amount of people living I them with about 40 people in each site. In the sites that were located closer to a river, there was much less people. Site I had the most people living there, about 25. In each of the sites by the river and shore where the people lived there were only 2-4 graves per site. Most likely, the majority of the people got buried at site X, the largest site that archaeologists dug up in all of Fugawiland, located in the plains. This is because site X contained the most amount of graves and bundle burials-19 graves and 40 bundle......

An Ocean Adventure

...An Ocean Adventure As I watch, the waves from the shore look fun and almost innocent as they crest and then crash over one another. I can taste the salt in the air and watch little rainbows glisten through the prisms of the ocean’s spray. The warm ocean water toward the shore is covered with foam and bubbles from the rumbling waves as children and their families play in the gritty tan colored sand. I think to myself, “This is perfect”. I make the final preparations on my Yamaha Waverunner. All of the fluid levels check full and there is a faint smell of gasoline mixed with the aromas of salt and fish in the air. I am now ready to brave and jump the mighty ocean waves of South Padre Island! Before the truck backs the trailer into the warm waters at the dock and lowers the Waverunner into the blue-green abyss, I crank the engine for a final systems check. It roars powerfully, drowning out the sound of the birds circling overhead, as thick black and gray smoke initially pours from the exhaust and then slowly drifts away on the wind’s light breeze. I turn the impressive machine off to finish my final preparations. As I put on the Jet Pilot lifejacket and tighten the thick blue straps, I remind myself to stay calm and not to make stupid or impulsive decisions during my journey into the ocean. It is easy to push oneself to the limits and lose track of reality. I must remember to respect Mother Nature at all times and keep in mind that I am not invincible. I climb aboard the......

Skiing Adventure

...The Big Race Childhood is a time of adventure and exploring. For me, I took adventure and exploring to a whole new level. When I was only eight years old, I entered a ski race on the 2002 Olympic course while on vacation in Park City, Utah. Every year during Christmas break, my family and I take a trip out west to go skiing. That year was particularly special because it was going to be our first trip to Utah. Two weeks before for our trip, my dad was doing some research about all the events that would be going on in Park City while we were there. He informed me that there would be a youth ski race on the 2002 Olympic course. He asked if I had any interest in giving the race a try. I blew it off because I didn’t think that my mom would let me do it. Christmas day was over and it came time for us to leave. I was so excited. I really enjoy skiing and, at such a young age, it came pretty natural to me. Our plane landed in Salt Lake City and then it’s a 30-minute ride through the mountains to reach Park City. We arrived very late so it felt like the middle of the night. We quickly stashed our bags and went to bed. Our plan was to get out early in the morning and hit the slopes. We got up, ate breakfast, and loaded the gear into our car. To get to the ticket window, we had to walk through the resort/lodge area. While walking, we saw a billboard advertising the youth ski race my dad had read about weeks before. My dad saw the billboard and asked again if I wanted to......

The Adventures of Aladdin

.... ." "Too bad for you," snapped the stranger, slamming down the manhole cover, never noticing that, as he did so, a ring slid off his finger. A terrified Aladdin was left in pitch darkness, wondering what the wizard would do next. Then he trod on the ring. Aimlessly putting it on his finger, he twisted it round and round. Suddenly the room was flooded with a rosy light and a great genie with clasped hands appeared on a cloud. "At your command, sire," said the genie. Now astoundede, Aladdin could only stammer: "I want to go home!" In a flash he was back in his own home, though the door wa tightly shut. "How did you get in?" called his mother from the kitchen stove, the minute she set eyes on him. Excitedly, her son told her of his adventures. "Where's the silver coin?" his mother asked. Aladdin clapped a hand to his brow. For all he had brought home was the old oil lamp "Oh, mother! I'm so sorry. This is all I've got." "Well, let's hope it works. It's so dirty . . ." and the widow began to rub the lamp. Suddenly out shot another genie, in a cloud of smoke. "You've set me free, after centuries! I was a prisoner in the lamp, waiting to be freed by someone rubbing it. Now, I'm your obedient servant. Tell me your wishes." And the genie bowed respectfully, awaiting Aladdin's orders. The boy and his mother gaped wordlessly at this incredible apparition, then the genie said with a hint of impatience in his voice. "I'm here at your command. Tell me what you want. Anything......

The Adventures of Johnny Bunko

...Jennifer G English 1A Tiffany Higgins September 10, 2014 The Adventures of Johnny Bunko Daniel Pink presents many important lessons in The Adventures Of Johnny Bunko: The Last Career Guide You'll Ever Need, which are secrets to being successful in life. Johnny Bunko is an average guy who is unhappy and unsatisfied with the career he has. Throughout the book, Pink states many good points and talks about being persistent and how people should focus on their strengths, not their weaknesses. Although I agree with Daniel Pink when he makes the point that in order to be successful you need to be persistence; I disagree when he states that people should focus on their strengths not their weaknesses, because in order to be successful you need to first focus on your weaknesses and improve them so you wont keep repeating the same mistake throughout your career. Summary: In The Adventures of Johnny Bunko, Daniel Pink using the character of Diana, argues that in order to have persistence you need to focus on your strengths and not your weaknesses. By all means, throughout the Six Lessons in The Adventures of Johnny Bunko the First Lesson Daniel Pink through the character of Diana mentions that “There is no plan.” Johnny is always tired which makes it hard for him to concentrate, so he struggles to get his work done on time. Johnny goes to lunch with his co workers and explains to them how when he opens the chopsticks “this person” who is Diana appears with magical powers. He......

A Graphic Adventure

...A Graphic Adventure A Graphic Adventure Nathan Reece Herzing University A Graphic Adventure The holocaust is well known as a very tragic event and a first-hand account of such an event is already intriguing enough. However, Art Spiegelman took the intrigue a step further by telling it through an ironic graphic novel. The short adscript, “Prisoner of War” is an ironic graphic representation of the holocaust from a Russian’s perspective. Artie, a secluded boy, visits his father one of many times to ascertain more information about his past experiences in the war. In this instance his father recollects a time of tragic momentums. Artie listens eagerly although seems to take more interest in the recording story’s events than his father’s suffering. Perhaps one of the most ironic aspects of this graphic novel is the decision to use animals to depict race and nationality. Rats and Mice, for example, are used for the male and female Jewish characters. Cats are used for German soldiers and pigs for the Polish, who were very bitter towards the Germans at this time. This allowed him to depict something through picture that he would normally describe in long script. The variation shows the Jews as pests, which is how society saw them at the time. And it also showed the German as their predators and natural oppressors. Cats are viewed as a control factor for rats and mice, which exactly the way they saw themselves. Prior to telling the story, Vladek is......

Adventures in Cheating

...Adventures in Cheating A guide to buying term papers online. Students, your semester is almost over. This fall, did you find yourself pulling many bong hits but few all-nighters? Absorbing much Schlitz but little Nietzsche? Attending Arizona State University? If the answer is yes to any or (especially) all these questions, you will no doubt be plagiarizing your term papers. Good for you—we're all short on time these days. Yes, it's ethically blah blah blah to cheat on a term paper blah. The question is: How do you do it right? For example, the chump move is to find some library book and copy big hunks out of it. No good: You still have to walk to the library, find a decent book, and link the hunks together with your own awful prose. Instead, why not just click on a term paper Web site and buy the whole damn paper already written by some smart dude? Que bella! Ah, but which site? I shopped at several online term paper stores to determine where best to spend your cheating dollar. After selecting papers on topics in history, psychology, and biology, I had each paper graded by one of my judges. These were: Slate writer David Greenberg, who teaches history at Columbia; my dad, who teaches psychology at the University of Rhode Island (sometimes smeared as the ASU of the East); and my girlfriend, who was a teaching assistant in biology at Duke (where she says cheating was quite common). So, which site wins for the best combination of price and paper quality? I compared......

American Adventures

...Two of America’s greatest adventures were the Lewis and Clark Expedition and Man on the Moon. The Lewis and Clark Expedition took place in the U.S during 1803, while man on the moon took place during the 1969-1972. Lewis and Clark went to go explore the west because Thomas Jefferson assigned them to do this after the Louisiana Purchase. The U.S sent Neil Armstrong and Edwin Aldrin to win the space race against the U.S.S.R. The two adventures had a lot in common and many differences. The Lewis and Clark Expedition and Man on the Moon have many similarities. Both of the adventures took place in unknown territories. Another similarity was that both parties traveled long and far to reach their destinations. The Lewis and Clark Expedition took 8,000 miles, while Man on the Moon took 407,700 miles. Lewis and Clark traveled through land and water, using horses and canoes. Meanwhile, Man on the Moon used rocket ships and computers. The two adventures had many differences between themselves. The Lewis and Clark Expedition took two years to complete, and Man on the Moon took three days to complete. The Lewis and Clark Expedition were allocated with 2,500 dollars, and Man on the Moon coasted 38 billion dollars to complete. During the adventures Lewis and Clark brought back drawings of plants, animals, maps, and journals. After Neil Armstrong and Edwin Aldrin were done with their mission they brought back moon rocks, pictures, and moon soil. In the end the Lewis and Clark Expedition......

Unfortunately EAI received reports from Brazilian authorities that waters were unusually low this year but Peruvian authorities indicated all was fine. State the Assignment Question Due to the fact that EAI is receiving biased and conflicting information from the Brazilian authorities and Peruvian authorities, they must gather as much unbiased information as possible and draw their own conclusions. Should EAI take the trip all the way to Iquitos, Peru? Should they take a shorter version of the trip stopping in Manaus, Brazil? Or should they cancel the trip completely?
