But one even significant, broader question that one must consider is whether or not these factors, biologically related and non, effect the occurrence of violent tendencies in individuals. In 1848, a railroad worker, Phineas Gage, was working when an explosion caused an iron rod to impale his skull, damaging the front part of his brain. Although Gage miraculously survived, his behavior severely changed in that the intelligent and respectful man everyone knew suddenly because fitful, impulsive, and rude (2). This is one of the first dated cases insinuating that violence may be related to some kind of damage or abnormality in the brain.
This creaky old house is a classic for horror stories and films, so it definitely adds to the total effect. The plot also gives that same feeling of horror. The way the murderer watched the old man night after night, for hours at a time. You got the total effect of horror when he flipped the bed onto the old man, and then chopped him into little tiny pieces and hid him the floorboards. Then the police came to see about a scream that was reported earlier.
We constantly watch celebrities commit crime on television and observe people being slaughtered multiple times a day. Youth can virtually do the slaughtering of the other characters while playing first person shooter video games. These forms violence in our media is overwhelming. To hear, to see, and to virtually experience the negative actions have a negative affect on the youth, especially if more than one of these influences are being experienced by the same individual. Drugs, poverty, and an unstable home life are some of the already factors that influence violence; if the already known factors are combined with media violence, “the result is an explosion of violent crime in any nation in which it takes place” suggests Lt.

O’Brien seems to try and drive the audience by appealing to them through the use of pathos “…right then Ted Lavender was shot in the head on his way back from peeing. He lay with his mouth open. The teeth were broke. There was a swollen black bruise under his left eye. The cheekbone was gone.” (O’Brien 1990) He appears to intentionally use the deaths of several members in particular Ted Lavender to shock the audience; to make it somehow real and to remind us it is more than a story, its history and real men lived and died in that history.
In the story the man’s humility changes the waitress’s behavior because she feels sympathy towards the man even though she was being a stereotype at the beginning. When the man first approached the dinner the waitress though he was like anybody else suffering from the great depression just trying to get things for free from people. At the beginning the man just walked to the dinner with a humble self being, asking to buy a loaf of bread. Immediately the waitress Mae being a stereotype and thinking he was trying to trick her said that the bread was for making sandwiches only. In response the man says that he needs the bread to feed his children because it’s a long road ahead of them to California.

Relief spreads throughout your body, but the sign is not enough to quench your growing hunger pangs that emanate from deep within your belly. You take the exit, and, upon arriving at the fast food restaurant, quickly jump to the nearest open register. You waste no time with niceties, and instead simply state your need for a cheeseburger with everything on it. As you frantically throw your money at the cashier, you snatch up your food and head to a red booth near the door. The smells of greasy goodness waft up from the paper bag as you unfurl your treats.
First of all, too much knowledge can cause one to judge. Victor states “How can I describe my emotions at this catastrophe, or how delineate the wretch whom with such infinite pains and care I have endeavored to form?” (Shelley 47). In this quote, Victor judges the monster as soon as he is born. Due to the monster looks and without considering his personality Victor judges him and thinks he is stupid, scary, and mean. In this article it states, “Throughout Frankenstein, the reader is left with the feeling that Victor's obsessive desire to defeat nature, through the creation of another life, directly led to the many tragedies that befell him.” That means that due to his irresponsible judging his life starts to go downhill.
