Pizza hunt and the pyramids
It seems counterintuitive that one can experience chain food meals in the most sacred parts of the world. Pizza hut, a chain food restaurant that sells American-Italian food, is one of the US’s top fast-food restaurants. The Prices usually being very affordable, and the quality to match you can find a Pizza hunt nearly anywhere in the world.
But it creates an unsettling feeling when the term anywhere in the world is taken quite literally. The Egyptian Pryminds is one of the world’s most sacred historical wonders. It is romanticized on the idea of it being in a deserted location. But that isn’t true these days because of societal advances and industrialization. And because of a growing society, it fell vulnerable to tourist attractions and companies that can afford to open restaurants as close to its vicinity as possible. Pizza hut, being one of the restaurants just across the street from a historical landmark.

Men define rape
It seems counterintuitive that the definition of rape is defined by men, Men being one’s who commit the majority of rapes. Historically rape against women has been a constant problem it is a tactic of control and an emotional toll. Women are usually taken advantage of by men, but men have always been the hierarchy of society.

When defining rape, men always had the upper hand. Rape was first written into law in 1780 BC defining rape as property damage to men with virgin daughters. And if you were married and raped, as a woman, you were seen as an adulterer and as was thrown into a river as punishment. Virgin and rape was a consistent pattern up until the middle ages where punishment varied from the types of women; ranging from virgins, married, widowed, nuns and whores. And finally defining rape as a public wrong rather than property damage against men.

Things like this may seem absurd, but history has a repeated definition that goes against victimized women. Women being mostly at fault for their rape if they convince because one English physician named Samuel Farr believed that pregnancy could not happen without a female orgasm. Women were also expected to squirm because a needle could not go through a moving thread, and with enough squirm, you should not be raped.

Rape laws like these seen in history had no empathy for the victims. Laws started off to satisfy men, property, and wealth. And Rape isn’t clearly defined as an assault on all-female bodies until the 20th century.

Free heroin

It seems counterintuitive that one can get heroin prescribed by a doctor for free. Vancouver is a port town, it’s especially vulnerable to drug transportation. Although these drugs spread throughout Canada most of them stay within the city. Its drug problem can resemble the worst part of Baltimore or Detroit.

It is difficult to try to get an addict to get off heroin because it is a highly addictive drug. And in the effort to keep heroin addicts away from crime and death. Vancouver has created safe spaces for people to “shoot up” where nurses can provide clean instruments and protection from cops.

With this, there is also a research project in the effort of fighting the heroin epidemic. The project prescribes heroin to 26 addicts so they can cope with their addiction.

Project isn’t necessarily trying to end the addiction it’s a harm reduction program and addicts in the program gain self-righteousness because they now have the ability to focus on their life rather than their next fix. One addict now has the ability to keep a job rather than break into people’s cars. And although he’s feeding his addiction he is more human than he will ever be on the street.

    Hey, Tacos, please be careful when importing and pasting text into a WordPress entry field. The formatting that comes along with the text can often create layout problems. I switched to “Code” mode in the Edit window and stripped out all the font and spacing codes that were forcing your paragraphs into double-space, for example. It’s tedious and can be avoided by importing text only.

    Ordinarily, I provide feedback on just one of these little gems and hope that whatever advice I offer will also apply to and help you revise the other two. If that doesn’t work in your case, drop me a Reply.

    I had the experience of videotaping the Sphinx and the Pizza Hut myself, so I have a personal love for your first choice. Let’s see how you summarized.

    You got the counterintuitivity right, but you buried it in repetitions, Tacos. Maybe the concept doesn’t require much language to communicate, but your short description is diluted by the details you repeat, among them “the most sacred parts of the world” with “the world’s most sacred historical wonders,” and “nearly anywhere in the world” with “the term ‘anywhere in the world,'” and “because of societal advances” with “because of a growing society,” and “as close to its vicinity as possible” with “just across the street from a historical landmark.”

    It’s easy to repeat ourselves without noticing, and it’s my job to notice for you. I hope this is helpful.

    Whether you choose to revise or not, Tacos, I do expect you to respond so I’ll know you respect the feedback process. Thanks!

      Thank you so much! I didn’t have much to go off of but I was very fascinated by the Sphinx and Pizza Hut. It truly tried to elongated to make it as much as a paragraph as possible because I was worried about the length.

        That was evident, yes, and a common technique that doesn’t work out very often. Another, better technique, is to find an insight to share.

        It seems counterintuitive to see a Pizza Hut directly behind us when we’re in the presence of the Sphinx, one of the most revered historical wonders of the world. But it’s just an important part of growing up to realize that we can’t expect to experience the wonders of antiquity when we’re traveling as tourists. American entrepreneurs visited the Pyramids long before our sightseeing bus arrived, and wherever we go, we bring our logos and our fast-food chain influences with us to change the world into a bit of franchise territory.

        You actually had this attitude in mind, but you buried it under some generalized remarks about “societal advances.” That language hides your point of view. The best writing starts with recognizing your emotional reaction and then finding a way to address it as directly as possible. We feel betrayed when we see how close the Pizza Hut is allowed to get to something we wanted to experience as magical and wondrous. But we immediately recognize that it’s our own fault for thinking we could ever see the “real” Sphinx. We’re a few centuries too late for that.
