This is a biographical sketch about my person, Walter Walles. He was born around 1830 and 1850, he lived for 89 years.
He was born in Europe, at the age of seven he moved to New York. When he moved, he brought many things with him, such as: furniture, food, jewelry, and certain traits. His parents moved so they could give their son a better education. Walter went to the finest schools of New York to become a doctor. He was a very good student his parents where jewelers who owned many rare jewels, the name of their shop is still around, Walles Jewelers.
He continued to study in New York, until he became a successful and famous doctor, chemist. Walter was a very down to earth person and loved doctoring, it was his passion, but yet he did not let fame get to him. Instead he gave lots of money to poor people and charities.As a doctor he made many medical discoveries, but they would be very crude practices today.
Walles showed early signs of being a doctor because he would experiment on little animals with tools he made out of: stone, bronze, and sticks.
He went bald at an early age because of all the chemicals that he experimented with. This also made another interesting side affect, incredible fast growing beard he grew a big beard, but a spot in the middle of his head there would grow a small patch of hair, so he ended up shaving his head. Some people thought he looked funny with his facial hair and shaved spot and his beard, so this giveaway too many nick names, such as: Slick, Baldy, Godzilla, Wally, Walt.
Walt was a pillar of the community. In most pictures that were taken of him he looked very serious and mean, but that is not so, often he would joke around with his patients saying such things as: "Oh, that's a very bad wound, we will have to amputate that arm." and telling people that he removed there bladder, when really he was suppose to remove there appendix. Wally had somewhat a morbid sense of humor but he though he was very funny.
This picture was taken just before he died, he looked young in it, but he was only 88.
One day he was experimenting with some volitle chemicals to try and cure Gonorrhea, however a reaction that he had not expected blew up on him turning the house that he lived in. Into nothing but ruble and dirt.
Walter lived a happy and successful life with his morbid sense of humor and his experimenting of chemicals. That concludes my story.

Iago Iago When Shakespeare attempted to create the ultimate villain (and I must say he was stunningly successful), Iago was the result. This cunningly evil character always keeps the audience guessing at his true personality until he has the opportunity to plan in solitude or so gracefully manipulate an inferior intellect that he can let his true colors shine while preserving his image. Such is the case in act I, scene III, when he recites to Roderigo a beautifully worded speech revealing his true

Ark Twains novel The Adventures of Huckleberry Finn is by any means a M ark Twain’s novel The Adventures of Huckleberry Finn is by any means a classic. However, there are several flaws.

The other major problem is that the book seems to drag on and on the closer you get to the end, as if Twain had a page quota to fill and was not worried about the story. The other problem brought up on our hand-out was Huck’s lack of seriousness in what was a very serious situation f

Although this manner of closure would

In the movie, the twelfth night, it seems much more obvious that Feste knows Cesario’s not what he appears to be, ho

Genetic Genital and Brain Sex Genetic, Genital and Brain Sex First of all, I would like to explain the concept from the very beginning of the conception. At conception, the womb’s genetic is either composed of chromosomes XY or XX. This genetic is determined at birth and is permanent, irreversible. In fact, it is the Y chromosome that determines the genetic sex of the womb. Now, let’s explain the first part of that complex pattern. If the genetic sex of a womb is XY, then he could develop two different types of genitals. If

There is a reverse of fortune and the hero falls from the position of man who has everything to a man who has less than nothing. The hero is always portrayed in the hyperbole and everything is in a grand scale. When he sacrifices he sacrifices everything and his reach always exceeds his grasp. This exaggeration
