I began this week by deciding which novel I was going to read for this semester. I ended up choosing one of the first few that I looked up, “The Man Who Ended the World” by Jason Gurley. I thought that the summary seemed like something that I would be interested in watching on television. The next thing on the list was reading the two short stories. I started reading “the Defenders” and then moved on to “Tupac Shakur and the End of the World”. I was definitely more interested in the concepts and overall storyline of “the Defenders”. The overall messages I received from that story seemed like they were spot on with what occurs in our world currently.
“Human cultures pass through phases, each culture in its own time. As the culture ages and begins to lose its objectives, conflict arises within it between those who wish to cast it off and set up a new culture-pattern, and this who wish to retain the old with as little change as possible.“
“War, to a logical mind, is absurd. But in terms of human needs, it plays a vital role. And it will continue to until Man has grown up enough so that no hatred lies within him.”
are two my favorite quotes that I took from this story. Because I enjoyed this story more, I chose to write the alternate ending featuring Franks going haywire and getting blasted by some tin-man.
I also figured out how to add the pages to my menu that were just direct links to other social platforms. I spent way more time than I wanted trying to figure that out. I don’t know if I’m going to change the appearance of my blog, but I do want it to be more organized.
The item that I would choose to buy from Amazon would be a 2016 Jeep Wrangler. I figure that the most important thing to have would be transportation, even though it would suck getting gas. You only get 21 miles to the gallon but I still think that a car would be the best option to choose from Amazon.
Question of the Week:
If an apocalyptic event occurred I would have no problem sharing food with other if they needed it, as long as my family has already been fed. My main priority would be the survival of my family at any cost, but I would also be focused on helping whoever I can if have enough. I feel like its also important to bridge those relationship to make surviving easier. If something of that nature were to ever occur my main wish would be for everyone to set aside our differences and survive as one. However, it could just as easily go both ways.
