"The Facts in the Case of M. Valdemar" is a short story by American author Edgar Allan Poe about a mesmerist who puts a man in a suspended hypnotic state at the moment of death. An example of a tale of suspense and horror, it is also, to a certain degree, a hoax, as it was published without claiming to be fictional, and many at the time of publication (1845) took it to be a factual account. Poe toyed with this for a while before admitting it was a work of pure fiction in his marginalia.

The novel is a first-person narrative from the perspective of the title character. The novel's setting is somewhere in the north of England, during the reign of George III (1760–1820), and goes through five distinct stages: Jane's childhood at Gateshead Hall, where she is emotionally and physically abused by her aunt and cousins; her education at Lowood School, where she acquires friends and role models but suffers privations and oppression; her time as governess at Thornfield Hall, where she falls in love with her Byronic employer, Edward Rochester; her time with the Rivers family, during which her earnest but cold clergyman cousin, St. John Rivers, proposes to her; and her reunion with, and marriage to, her beloved Rochester. During these sections the novel provides perspectives on a number of important social issues and ideas, many of which are critical of the status quo. Literary critic Jerome Beaty opines that the close first person perspective leaves the reader "too uncritically accepting of her worldview", and often leads reading and conversation about the novel towards supporting Jane, regardless of how irregular her ideas or perspectives are.

A mother duck's eggs hatch, but the biggest egg takes longer than all the others. A nosy neighbor opines that the egg looks like a turkey egg. When the egg finally hatches, Mother Duck is relieved to see that her newest son swims - he must not be a turkey - but as ducklings go, he's not very good looking. The unnamed ugly duckling lives an unpleasant life in the "duckyard" of the farm on which his family lives. With the notable exception of his mother, he is not only disparaged for his looks, he is often bullied and brutalized.

This game is considered “life and death”. The winner will become champion and this is a knockout game. Jack is with Aston Villa. Last time he got so beaten up that now he is forced to carry a knife. He is scared. The two crowds started fighting long ago before the beginning of the match. Aston Villa won by 2 goals, Michael’s team lost. After the game the fans of both teams collided outside the stadium. Michael didn’t want any trouble but the knife of Jack had another opinion and hit his heart.

Six friends get together in a pub for some drinks. Each and everyone of them has a different job but the one thing they have in common is their daily torturing by their wives.

George, retired teacher, 70 years old. Chris, 27 years old mathematician. Mike, taxi driver 55 years old. A light comedy for all ages of how our lovely wives make our lives a cute nightmare. What kind of funny situations are our characters thrown into every day?
