The End is Near Without You “I will never let you get away with this! Armageddon will be upon us and you of all people will pay for what you have done.”
Bishop strikes with his sword to the chest of Stank Gum. Stank Gum blocks and returns a strike to Bishop’s leg.
“Muahahahah, you’re weak and slow just like your father! I enjoyed killing him by the way. His blood was mighty tasty too.” Bishop never knew the potential he had, or what he was capable of doing. Everyday Bishop was cleaning stables for his father. Until one day he was working and heard...“Bishop! Someone’s here to see you.”
Bishop made his way to the front door of his home and opened the door.
“May I ask what you’re doing hear stranger?” Bishop asked.
“Pardon my interruption. I am Mifune. I’m looking for Bishop Amarta. Is he here or am I at the wrong house?”
“I’m here, what seems to be the problem sir?” Bishop replied.
“The world is in danger from the notorious ruler Stank Gum and our legion is in need of your help. Come with me and I can show you, trust me, the end is near without you,” explained Mifune.
“Alright, just for this one time, but I am not a hero.”
Bishop joined Mifune on the ride to check out his Legion. As Bishop and Mifune arrived, Bishop saw a bunch of other people training in obstacle courses.
“Woah! What is this place?” asked Bishop.
“This is The Legion of Kishin, the best warriors from all across the world come here to train to defeat the army of Stank Gum and himself. I’ve gathered you here to recruit you.”
“Me? Why me? I’m nothing compared to any of these guys! You think I’m going to risk my life, all for some war that is being taken care of!” said Bishop angrily.
“It’s destiny Bishop, you see?” Everyone around Bishop and Mifune started staring. Bishop heard whispering all around them. He was curious about what was going on.
“Why are they staring?” asked Bishop.
“Because you are destiny Bishop. All these people know the prophecy, and believe in what you can do for all us,” replied Mifune.
“No! That can’t be possible!”
“Armageddon will be upon us without your help. Stank Gum is winning and we can’t let that happen. You are our only hope.”
“No, I can’t,” sadly answered Bishop.
Bishop returned home to his father. Entering his home, calling for his dad, only to hear the echoes of his own voice. Suddenly Bishop hears screaming coming from the stables. It sounded like his father. Bishop quickly dashed to the stables as fast as he could. Bishop was hoping he was alright, Bishop was worried.
“Dad! You’re bleeding! What happened!?” Bishop said anxiously.
“It.. was… Stank.. Gu..,”
Bishop’s father took his last breath. He smelt smoke coming from his house. Bishop turns around and sees Stank Gum holding up a torch chanting. Suddenly, Bishop’s whole world collapsed into nothing but a void. He was lost and had nothing left. There was still hope for him.
“Aaaaaaahhhhh!!!” shouts Bishop.
Bishop hurries over to meet Mifune. Something had to be done. Bishop needed to get payback for his father. It needed be done.
“Mifune!” angrily said Bishop.
“Yes?” answered Mifune.
“I want in, teach me how to fight.”
Mifune grins and lightly chuckles at Bishop “About time, I knew those giant arms would come in handy, come to my cabana in the morning. Your training begins then.”
The next morning Bishop headed straight to Mifune’s cabana without hesitation. Bishop was filled with hatred. His eyes were smoldering like lava, just to get revenge on Stank Gum.
“Are you ready to start your training today?” asked Mifune.
“Yes, more than ever, I can’t deal with this kind of pain any longer than I have to.”
Mifune handed Bishop a sword.
“Attack me, I need to see what you could do first.”
Bishop dashes toward Mifune as hard as he could, but missed him. One attack after another you could tell Bishop was getting annoyed. Mifune kept dodging attacks like it was nothing.
“Stop,” said Mifune.
“What’s the problem?” answered Bishop
“Look at me, you are fighting out of anger, you can’t do damage that way, think of your father and how much you loved him, that should do the trick.”
Bishop tries his hardest to think what his father did for him all his life. He loved him more than anyone
“Now strike at me again,” says Mifune.
Once more, Bishop tried to attack Mifune the best he could. The shiny steel blade striking through the rain slicing through everything in its path. Mifune hardly had any reaction time for it. With him barely dodging it, Bishop, put a long bloody wound on the chest of Mifune.
“Mifune! I’m so sorry!” cried Bishop.
“It’s ok, it happens a lot. I’m impressed, you’re learning fast.”
As time went by, Bishop had grown far more than he had thought. He was now a superior swordsman.
While Stank Gum is close to causing the end of the world. Bishop arrived at one of Stank Gum’s camps. Silently perched on a hillside he quickly spots his target. thought Bishop. As he´s thinking up a way to sneak in he saw a very deadly snake, it was a Viking Albino King Snake and it jumped at him he slipped and slid down the hill exposing himself.
All the troops of the camp seemed puzzled. It didn’t take long for all of them to start laughing at such a foolish and dumb “assassin”. With all the soldiers being well entertained, they had no idea Bishop disappeared from the hillside. “Ahhhhhhh,” cried a group of troopers. Bishop was killing one after another, he dominated all of his opponents. Bishop takes his saber and drove it right into the rough flesh of a foe. Then turning his blade, slicing through all of the enemy’s organs. Blood splattered everywhere. With the rivals intestines horrifically falling out of his torso. Bishop turns and strikes fear into the eyes of all the others. They then looked at Bishop and at all the carnage he had caused. They all turned and walked away, except one. This soldier was like no other. He was and it. A colossal mutant, more so a beast. Bishop himself was astonished of the figure. The beast took one step and bolted straight towards Bishop. Charging at him with intense speed, Bishop had no room for hesitation on this one, he was like a deer caught in headlights. thought Bishop.
The Beast knocked Bishop off his feet and he soared through the air like a baby bird falling from its nest. All you could hear was the solid thud of Bishops figure hitting the ground. The beast walked up to Bishop’s body once more and grabbed him. Palming Bishop’s head, the beast took him and started hammering his face right into the earth. One after another until Bishop’s face was brutally crushed. Blood gushed everywhere, Bishop was down but not out. The beast dropped Bishop and walked away. He was clueless, the mutant felt like it's job was done, but it wasn’t. Bishop stumbled to his feet, his eyes that were once blue turned black like he was not in control. Bishop yelled, alerting the beast. Coming at it with incredible speed, Bishop took his blade and sliced it right through its body. The beast’s upper body was completely severed from the other half. Descending onto the dirt, the beasts build was no more than a carcass for the vultures. It was now time to interrogate and terminate the target. Bishop needed answers of Stank Gum’s whereabouts. It didn’t take long for Bishop to find a bright red beret. As a matter of fact, Bishop could clearly see him quivering in a corner like a wee baby. “Stank Gum, where is he! Tell me or I’ll take my sword and jam it as far down your throat as I can” Furiously yelled Bishop. “He... He... He…” Cried the the twerp “Now! I want answers!” Bishop raises his sword in the air about to strike down the little sucker. “Wait, No you Can’t,” weeped a voice. Bishop strangely looks back as he see’s one of the most lovely women he’s ever seen. “Whoooh, She’s hot!!” said the twerp. Bishop let’s go of the “soldier” and pays more attention to the young lady. “Get out of here, unless you want me to slaughter you to bits too,” yelled Bishop. “I’m sorry to bother you, I’m Arachne, I heard you were looking for Stank Gum, is that correct?” “What do you know about him?” asked Bishop “Stank Gum is located not far north of here, if you want I can take you there,” exclaimed Arachne. “Take me you will, but if you try to make one slick move I’ll tear you to shreds.” “Will Do.”

Arachne and Bishop make their way to the camp of the notorious Stank Gum. Mifune greets them on the way to tell them something very urgent.
“Bishop! Be careful in there. He’ll be unleashing a dangerous chemical in the air that’ll make everyone, but his empire, wither into nothing but bone. I barely got out of there without getting caught. You have about 30 minutes until it goes off. If you don’t reach it in time we will all be dead,” exclaimed Mifune.
“Thank you. Even though we’ve known each other for a couple months, I’m proud to say that I was trained by the greatest sword master in all the land. You may not ever see me again. I could die a heroic death. But I’m not going to die, I’ll whoop his butt, and surpass god right there and then!” replied Bishop.
“Farewell crazy!”
Arachne led Bishop into one of the secret entrances in the camp. Arachne stayed back to avoid any skirmishes. Guards were everywhere. Bishop managed to silently take out the guards one by one. Slicing the throats of the them. Creating distractions to get closer to Stank Gum. Bishop slowly approached, being silent like a cheetah stalking its prey. Bishop had finally caught Stank Gum red handed, alone, laughing like a hyena at his own cause. Bishop was sure that he had and open shot to exterminate him. Bishop grunts trying to decapitate Stank Gum’s head, but it went right through him. Bishop’s face turned white like had just seen a ghost.
“Hahaha,” laughs Stank Gum
Bishop turns around and see’s Stank Gum right behind him swiping with his dual daggers. Bishop barely dodged from his attack.
“I will never let you get away with this! Armageddon will be upon us and you of all people will pay for what you have done.”
Bishop strikes with his sword to the chest of Stank Gum. Stank Gum blocks and returns a strike to Bishop’s leg.
“Muahahahah, you’re weak and slow just like your father! I enjoyed killing him by the way. His blood was mighty tasty too.”
“You’re a sick man. I’m going to take your life for what you’ve done!”
Bishop was blocking hit after hit the best he could, Stank Gum was too fast for him. He was breaking more and more after every hit Stank Gum had thrown. Until one opening left Bishop vulnerable and he was stabbed multiple times in the chest.
“I knew you were weak. Just one minute until everyone, but me and my troops are completely eradicated,” foolishly says Stank Gum.
“You aren’t going to win. I may be completely down but I’m not done with you.”
Bishop’s eyes turned black again and is golden hair was red. Stank Gum was intimidated but it was not enough to scare him off. Bishop attacked as fast as a bolt of lighting and rammed his steel blade right through the flesh and blood of Stank Gum. Stank Gum was finished. Coughing up blood Stank Gum managed to mumble something under his breath…
“Fifteen seconds are left “hero”. What are you gonna do? There’s no way to disable it now.”
Bishop took his steel sword and struck down Stank Gum completely severing his head. Rolling away with his neck gushing immense amounts of blood. Bishop looks up at the clock… 10… 9… 8… 7… He reacted quickly, channeling all of his energy into one giant force to destroy the machine. 4… 3… 2… Cling, the sword hit and caused a ginormous explosion that had shook the ground and everything with it. It was over. Bishop had saved the world from Stank Gum. Everyone was free from his torture. Mifune and Arachne saw the damage and knew Bishop was gone. He had died a hero’s death.
Mifune and Arachne hoisted up the giant golden statue in the middle of the legion. Clearing his throat Mifune addressed the warriors.
“We will miss him. Even for the short time we knew him. He will forever be in our debt. Ladies and Gentleman, I present you with the sculpture of our savior. Bishop Amarta!” The End is Near Without You “I will never let you get away with this! Armageddon will be upon us and you of all people will pay for what you have done.”
Bishop strikes with his sword to the chest of Stank Gum. Stank Gum blocks and returns a strike to Bishop’s leg.

While Stank Gum is close to causing the end of the world. Bishop arrived at one of Stank Gum’s camps. Silently perched on a hillside he quickly spots his target. thought Bishop.
Bishop tried his hardest to create a big entrance. Literally.
“HEY EVERYONE! I’M THE GREATEST ASSASSIN OF ALL TIME! NO ONE CAN STOP ME! I’M BISHOP AND I’M HERE TO KILL YOU ALL! YAHOO!” dumbly yelled Bishop. All the troops of the camp seemed puzzled. It didn’t take long for all of them to start laughing at such a foolish and dumb “assassin”.

How Far Do You Agree That the Korean War Was a War Without Winners?

...How far do you agree that the Korean War was a war without winners? I believe to a great extent that the Korean War was a war with winners. While the U.S.A and South Korea gained economic victories, China and the U.S.S.R benefited politically. The fact that not one singular country benefited in all aspects proves that there was no outright winner in this war however. Economically speaking, the U.S.A was victorious, gaining a 10% rise in GDP following the end of the Korean War. This was due to a great amount of military expenditure and employment. Moreover, the U.S.A returned economic prosperity to Japan and successfully gained a buffer state to communism in the form of South Korea. However, we must note that there were also failures, such as the fact that total military expenditure in the war rose from 4% to 14% of their GNP for no apparent reward. While the U.S.A were obvious victors in this aspect, there were also clear losers. These were North Korea and the U.S.S.R. Russia gave North Korea $500 million dollars a year, which resulted in no advance in the spread of communism. Russia was also dependant on North Korea for a positive economic result which it didn’t get. It was a similar situation for North Korea, who had 8,700 industrial plants knocked down and 600 000 homes destroyed. With concern to human cost, it can be argued that Russia were the true victors. They sustained very few casualties in return for a much bigger reward than U.S.A or China as they gained a...

From Here You Can Almost See the End of the Desert

...The social issues are closer enough for anyone who felt their harsh and cruel effect in life. The world of human beings is not a simple thing and needs a deeper realizing of the major factors which tend to make people resistant toward the features concerning equality and goodness in relationships with each other. People are likely to ignore such good intentions of their hearts and souls, than to follow the way of inner perfection within social instability in terms of race, gender, culture, and economic status. Alan Michael Morales in his work made of three storeys From Here You Can Almost See the End of the Desert outlines such unfair features of a man’s character, and ‘a man’ is used here to depict his male nature, particularly. The extents of violence, cruelty, and gender inequality are raised in the book with a specific coloring of characters’ primordial and afterward evaluation of what happens with them due to social factors of living in a society with a glimpse on men domination. The book represents a sort of rage, hatred, sadness, and sorrow placed in characters hearts due to definite negative factors considering physical injuries and moral indifference toward so-called closest people performed in a family. The paper is dedicated to point out the formal emotional as well as practical estimation of the author’s book with special attention paid on the states of souls maintained in characters throughout the book. The protagonist of the book is Rebecca who is sick and......

The End

...God’s Eternal Love God created the world for us. It is where mankind exists. Without God, there is no “us”. From the time we wake up to the time we sleep, everything we see is created by our loving God. God created the world because he wants to share his life to others. The greatest thing in the world is love. It is the most powerful force in the universe. Love is the force that connects us and that breathes life into all things. Without love we are nothing. Love is the most mysterious thing that no one can unravel. There are two kinds of love, Human Love and Divine Love. Human love has expectations and is limited. Love from humanity is like to-love and to-be-loved. You need to love your neighbor so they can love you back. On the other hand, human love has its worst part: withdrawal. Not everyone we love will love us back. But with divine love, love is pure and sincere. God’s love is unconditional and constant. His love is never selfish and proud. It is kind and humble. Our God created the world for he wants to share his life to us. God loves us much more than himself. Even though we commit sins, he will never turn his back to us but instead he will love us more whereas his love is eternal. God give us what he has and what he is. He made mankind by his own form. He created the heavens, mountains, plants and oceans just for us to have a perfect life. God does not want us to suffer from any consequences. He does not want us to be hurt. That is how God loves us. Even......

Can You Live Without Technology for One Day?

...April, 5, 2013 Word count # 1251 Can you live without technology for one day? If somebody asked you to live without your cellphone for one week, you most likely would not answer yes. The majority of the society would be against it and people would be surprised if someone said they could be without their cellphone for one week. If you go to the train station or mall, usually people are on their electrical devices while they are waiting, and that is easy to understand, but for college students, cellular phones and laptops are a way of life even when unnecessary. Today we cannot live without technology such as smartphones, tablets and laptops etc., for even short periods of time. It can be a major distraction. At NWC students are fully surrounded by technology. It is a definitely an advantage to use those electrical devices in order to do homework or connect with friends and family, but it could be an issue for college students because too often they use their phones inappropriately, unaware of their surroundings and excessively use applications that detract in their time management. For example, students at NWC are using electrical devices everywhere: in chapel and in class. College students are supposed to focus on their academic life more than social life, whereas, at NWC some students are struggling to find their academic purpose because they focus on their social life more than anything else. Currently, there is a certain proportion of students who are struggling......

Is the End Really Near?

...If you only had one more day to live, how would you spend it and who would you spend it with? These are the questions that 7 billion people are going to be faced with in a few weeks. This is called the ‘’Theory of 2012’’ or “The end of the world’’ According to this theory, December 21, 2012 is the ‘’last day of earth’’. No matter how many reasons are given to prove this theory, there are still many controversies and speculations. The 2012 apocalypse is false because of too many proofs to this theory, the vague and useless information and the lack of media development. If the apocalypse were to be true, there would be only one proof for this theory. One popular known reason is the Mayan calendar. This calendar was created over thousands of years ago and according to their calendar December 21, 2012 was the end. People also believed that the Mayans predicted series or misfortunate events marking that date. Another theory also was discovered which was the crashing of Nibiru. This proof was discovered by scientists that a planet under this name will hit the earth changing everything. If the world would have an end, there wouldn’t be more than one proof. The problem with this so called apocalypse is that if one would want to find out more information about why the world is going to end, that would be a difficult task to accomplish. If you look in books, or search online they will give you very minimal information. This is because the theory is so undeveloped and......

Are You Ready to Live Without Nonrenewable Energy Sources

...Are You Ready to Live Without Nonrenewable Energy Sources Chinita Johnson COM/220 Marla Muse December 12, 2012 Are You Ready to Live Without Nonrenewable Energy Sources What will you do when your lights go out because there are no more fossil fuels to fuel the electricity needs of our nation? As many of us have dealt with power outages for one reason or another, they were usually for a very short period of time that may have seemed like forever. For the past few decades there has been a huge push for conserving and preserving energy. Many live lives from day-to-day without ever giving any thought as to where their electricity comes from. Believe it or not, the depletion of non-renewable energy sources poses growing concerns for future generations if energy conservation and preservation are not taken seriously. “Coal, oil and natural gas are called fossil fuels because of the way that they were formed, the end products of photosynthesis that formed millions of years ago in large deposits of carbon compounds” (Berg & Hager, 2007 p. 7 & 105). Fossil fuels are also referred to as nonrenewable energy sources because natural processes do not replenish these sources within a reasonable period of time in which to be reused, they take millions of years to form. Coal and natural gas are most widely used to provide our homes with heat and electricity, and to fuel industrial and manufacturing plants. Nearly every mode of......

End of World

... 2012: Beginning of the End or Why the World Won't End? 12.22.11 Scenes from the motion picture "2012." Courtesy Columbia Pictures. Remember the Y2K scare? It came and went without much of a whimper because of adequate planning and analysis of the situation. Impressive movie special effects aside, Dec. 21, 2012, won't be the end of the world as we know. It will, however, be another winter solstice. Much like Y2K, 2012 has been analyzed and the science of the end of the Earth thoroughly studied. Contrary to some of the common beliefs out there, the science behind the end of the world quickly unravels when pinned down to the 2012 timeline. Below, NASA Scientists answer several questions that we're frequently asked regarding 2012. Question (Q): Are there any threats to the Earth in 2012? Many Internet websites say the world will end in December 2012. Answer (A): Nothing bad will happen to the Earth in 2012. Our planet has been getting along just fine for more than 4 billion years, and credible scientists worldwide know of no threat associated with 2012. Q: What is the origin of the prediction that the world will end in 2012? A: The story started with claims that Nibiru, a supposed planet discovered by the Sumerians, is headed toward Earth. This catastrophe was initially predicted for May 2003, but when nothing happened the doomsday date was moved forward to December 2012. Then these two fables were linked to the end of one of the cycles in the ancient Mayan calendar at the......

As Time Draws Near

...As the Time Draws Near This analytical essay will provide an analysis and interpretation of american writer Eowyn Ivey’s short story “As the Time Draws Near” (2012). The readers are introduced to the main character, Piper, who grew up in Alaska but later moved away. The short story follows her at a time when she has returned to Alaska in order to spread her dead father’s ashes under a particular spruce tree. She has a lot of thoughts about death and she is almost obsessed with it. Death is the focal point and theme in this short story. It raises questions such as what happens when we die? And what is death really? The story tells about our short time on earth and how fear of death can stand in the way of living life fully with all the experiences the current moment offers. 
This essay will focus mainly on setting and the father’s outlook on life. Furthermore this essay will also include an analysis of the symbolism in the short story.
 At the beginning the description of the nature in Alaska is a vivid portrayal followed by a number of incidents where people have been killed in or by this nature. Piper’s father is one of these people, he “falls out of the sky.” (p. 1, l. 10)
Her father with the name Red lived his life like it was an adventure. The description of the landscape appears in the same way - like a never-ending adventure. The tundra is a big and open landscape. The mountains, the glaciers and the snow continues into infinity. The same infinity that Piper’s......

The End

...The significance of Cecil Rhodes on the British Empire It is true, Cecil Rhodes had an unquestionable impact on the British Empire and has become one of the most important figures in British Imperial history. The rapidity of his progress in South Africa is quite phenomenal; from the age of 37 he had become the Prime Minister of Cape Colony, and was part head of De Beers Consolidated, a diamond mining company which possessed a near monopoly of the global diamond market. However, this essay will claim that Rhodes as a businessman was not the main element in his imperial notoriety, prioritising NM Rothschild & Sons finance and subsequent corporate decisions over those made specifically by Rhodes. I will argue that Rhodes’ significance was mainly to the detriment of the British Empire, as his political blunders and capitalistic short-sightedness greatly tarnished public opinion towards Empire - nationally and internationally - and facilitated Britains losing independence in the Boer war of 1899. Rhodes’ methods were questionable to say the least, and his ability to strengthen Britain, whilst at the same time tarnish her long standing reputation as justified sovereign of her colonies was, impressive, to say the most. It has been said that Rhodes’ impeccable success as an imperialist can be greatly accredited to his success as a businessman. For it was his speculation in diamond and gold mining proper which facilitated his amass of wealth. Needless to say, the role of......

Do You Think It Is Possible to End Extreme Poverty in the Next 30 Years?

...It is possible to end extreme poverty in the next 30 years. As a single mother of two boys, ages 6 and 4; having had several swings in employment and letting an entrepreneurial pursuit take off, life could take a toll if one would not step back, take a deep breath and write down the challenge and address possible solutions. When I was placed in custody for close to two months for an allegation that I passed on an insufficient check, I pointed out during hearing that the signature was not mine, rationalizing,” if I handed the check, my driver’s license should have been there, but look at your file, it’s a man’s ID. Look at the “P” stroke; doesn’t it match with that in the signature in the driver’s license? “The Prosecutor says, “Uh, I don’t know. I’m not a signature specialist.” After going through 6 months of completing the fraud packet and forensics investigation of the signature analysis, the case was dismissed. For the meantime, one would probably think I went rock bottom. It was a challenge finding employment with the background check and disclosures one has to make. As I meditated and applied the mind development technique I have learned through the years, I decided to weed out the negativity and attract the goodness. I accept the hardships in life and the opportunities to make me a stronger, empowered creature of God so I can be a model in His image and likeness. From the unemployment bureau to the Department of Social Services, I sought help. I volunteered for the......

...在候诊室或走廊上的一群行尸走肉中间,我们大大松了口气。 “前天,肯定是个沉重打击。”护士端来咖啡,对我们说。我立即想到医院已经会讨 论过卡门?范迪安潘的病情了。护士看看卡门,然后看看我。我努力振作起来,一个才见 面的护士不必看到我的可怜样。 追求众多女色的男人差不多都属两种类型其一,是在所有的女人身上寻求一个女人这 个女人存在于他们一如既往的主观梦想之中另一类,则是想占有客观女性世界里无穷的种 种姿色他们被这种欲念所诱惑。 Milan Kundera,from The Unbearable Lightness of Being(1984)2 我是个享乐主义者,有着 严重的孤独恐惧症,但我的享乐思想立刻被卡门征服了,我对她一见钟情。可从一开始, 她就不满我对一夫一妻制的恐慌与焦虑。起初,她对此还有几分同情,觉得我与其他女人 的逢场作戏好玩,把这看做是挑战而不是预警。 直到一年后——那时我们不住一起——我与那时供职在伯尼维广告公司的接待员莎朗 上床,事情败露后,她才确信我从未忠实于她,甚至从未尝试过要忠实。几年之后她告诉 我,莎朗这段插曲过后,她想甩掉我,但意识到自己爱我至深,所以干脆对我的不忠视而 不见,把这当成是我性格中无法弥补的缺陷,就好比有人好抠鼻子,有人好赌一样。这在 感情上给她一种慰藉,不再去想自己的丈夫“经常和别的女人鬼混”。 但是,之后许多年,她仍然威胁我如果旧病重犯,她就离开我。她要确保我若再出轨, 至少也要对她隐瞒得密不透风。这招果然有效。 这以后的七年,我们是西半球最快乐的夫妻,幸福一直环绕着我们。 直到三个星期之前,当我和弗兰克强打精神在听荷兰娱乐场产品经理喋喋不休时,卡 门给我打来电话。 我们知道这是世界末日了 REM,from It's the End of the World As We Know It 3 去赌场的都是些怪人和穿仿真丝衣服的女人。我在赌场从未见过一个漂亮女人。糟透 了! 所以,当荷兰赌场的产品经理打来电话说他想成为 MIU 市场营销策略公司的客户时, 我很自然地告诉他,赌场真是个让我疯狂的地方。 荷兰赌场对我们来说,是个打发时间的好去处。第二天上午弗兰克和我抽空来到这间 位于阿姆斯特丹市中心的赌场,产品经理带我们四处看一看,并参观他口中的“商业中 心”。商业中心,对了,“商业中心”,这就是我们客户喜欢用的术语。我没有什么意见。 他们可能在讨论要“一起聚聚,好好聊聊”呢。 我们,也就是我和弗兰克,在 MIU 谋生。有一技之长的人生产产品,还有一些人卖产 品,虽然不是那么体面,但一样非常实用。我和弗兰克不卖产品,我们卖的是时间。我们 甚至都不用自己生产它。MIU 大部分的脑力工作都是由六个二十几岁的年轻男女来做的, 他们都像自主创业之前的我和弗兰克一样,敏感、易激动。我和弗兰克把这些聪明的年轻 人的点子集中起来,做成报告,让我们那美艳惊人的秘书慕德加上漂亮的封面,然后我们 神态自若地把点子告诉客户。他们照例反应热烈,极力夸赞我们,然后把点子置之一旁, 再不理会。再然后我们又对同一个客户提供下一个报告,赚足了油水。这就是我们公司的 运营模式。 弗兰克提了一些问题,他知道客户总是欢迎这类问题,产品经理大谈信息过载的世界 记录,我则装作在认真听。我的装听艺术已是登峰造极了,客户会以为我在苦思他的市场 营销问题,而实际上我正在想的是做爱、俱乐部或阿贾克斯足球队。有时,我完全不知道 客户刚才说了什么,但这没有太大关系。高深莫测的表情、紧缩的眉头、故弄玄虚的沉默......

All Shakespearean Comedies End in Marriage. “as You Like It” Ends in Four. Does This Mean Shakespeare Has Presented an Idealistic View of Marriage?

...In Shakespearean times (and, to a large extent, today) marriage had a large role when trying to achieve a stable, happy life. However, debate arises when discussing whether or not ‘love’ plays an important part in an ideal marriage. ‘As You Like It’ encourages audiences to recognize marriage in many different and unconventional ways. For example, Phebe and Silvius have a marriage based on unrequited love. Phebe and Silvius have a partnership that can be interpreted as a more pessimistic view on marriage; thus, opposing the idea of idealistic marriage. Much alike Romeo from Romeo and Juliet, Silvius is written as a “Petrarchan lover,” – a man who is hopelessly in love with a woman who does not share the same feelings. This can be shown through quotations such as, “Say that you love me not, but say not so in bitterness.” Their marriage is, in many ways, far from ideal. Silvius is destined to spend the rest of his days with a woman who does not love him, while Phebe is destined to spend the rest of hers with a man whom she does not love herself. Their pairing seems to be the most negative of all the marriages as Phebe only agrees to marry him due to having to reject Ganymede. Rosalind also says, “Sell when you can: you are not for all markets,” implying Phebe has little choice when selecting a husband. This highlights a fundamental problem with the idea of marriage: settling out of fear of being left unmarried. Shakespeare brings an interesting problem to the spotlight,......
