    In this talk, Sherry Turkle’s arguments are shown to be very logical because she proves her points through the use of induction. Turkle first provides an example of an experience she has had with people as her “case”. From her experiences, she forms a rule or idea. An example of this is at 8:57 - Turkle says that she often hears people say, “I would rather text than talk.” From one simple statement, Turkle is able to draw from this that people are “used to getting by with less”.

    their passion. For others? Well, as Bobby Boucher’s mother in the movie, Waterboy, would say it, “is the Devil.” Whether you’re a fan or not, computers, cell phones, and soon to be driverless cars, are engulfing and controlling the world around us. Sherry Turkle, author of “Growing Up Tethered,” goes in depth with how technology is taking control of the lives of teenagers today.

    You were not to be found, and I was fearful of losing a bargain (Poe 332)”. This revels Montresor notices that Fortunato is not able to tell Amontillado from Sherry as he is a great wine-lover.

    when he pretends that he has chosen Luchresi to take with him when he first brings up the wine. This hits a nerve in Fortunato which then triggers him to agree to go with Montresor to see the amontillado. “And as for Luchresi, he cannot distinguish Sherry from Amontillado.” (Poe 109). One is able to predict a twisted ending to this story because of the way Montresor speaks to Fortunato. “…he did not perceive that my smile now was at the thought of his immolation.” (Poe 108). His tone shows the sociopathic

    The question of which one of the characters is the biggest fool of “The Cask of Amontillado” is may seem obvious at first, but clues within the story are conflicting. Fortunato dressed to play the part of the fool in the most literal sense; his tight-fitting jester’s outfit, complete with an eccentric hat covered in bells. This choice of clothing could not only be Poe’s way to make Fortunato the obvious choice of the “fool” of the poem, but also to convey the cruel jests that he often made that counted
