I have to say rotten dot com is not my type of website, but it did catch my attention. Even if you are disturbed or not attracted to something, you should give it a chance. You never know what to expect especially when you see,’ Rotten dot com collects images and information from many sources to present the viewer with a truly unpleasant experience’ on the main page. The content of the site is different than any other website that I have seen, but the form and layout is very common among websites. Rottendot com actually reminds of a newspaper’s layout.
On the main page there are several links, some on the left side, and some going down the bottom of the page. These links can be related to the subtitles of newspapers which lead you to the inside story. Being that the website is easily viewed and understandable, rotten dot com is a very well designed website. All the links show what topics can be viewed. Then after clicking on the specific link you want, a header page is opened. For example, if you click on the link ” Celebrity Morgue’, you will see a page with two skeletons on it, and the title overlapping them.
Below the title and skeletons is a list of people who you can view dead bodies of. Under the photos of the bodies, there are brief descriptions of how each individual person died. Another one of these links is called ‘famous.’ The famous link takes you to a page similar to the Celebrity Morgue page, where there are several sub links on the page. With these links you can view rare photographs.
The Mahavira and the Buddha share the same fundamental beliefs in Karma and dharma, however, their philosophies on how to achieve Nirvana differ greatly. Self denial, meditation, and enlightenment are the three major ways these two individuals believed helped to reach Nirvana. The Mahavira believed that self denial and meditation were the ways to achieving Nirvana, when the Buddha believed that ...
Some of these photos contain Richard Nixon meeting Elvis Presley, and a picture of David Duchonovy almost nude, which appeared on the cover of a European magazine. Another picture is of Nancy Reagan sitting on Mr. T’s lap, as he is dressed like Santa Claus. As I previously stated, the form of this website is extremely basic. It contains a lot of links to other pages, which consist of a few odd and disturbing photos.
Each page contains a few cartoon pictures, which describe and are related to that specific title of the page. A nice link to click is the ‘mug shots’ link. You can view and take a look at famous actors’, criminals’, and professional athletes’ mugshots. Some mug shots that I think are good are Pee Wee Herman because he got arrested for masturbating, Charles Barkley because he broke a man’s nose in a bar fight, and Al Pacino as young hoodlum growing up in Brooklyn. After viewing the page titled ‘Infants’ which contain photos of beastly babies’, I really felt sick to my stomach. This page must be one of the most disgusting that can be viewed through rotten dot com.
This page lets the viewer see a baby that looks like an alien, a deformed infant, a baby with an enormous size head, and a fetus with a pig like appearance. Looking at these photos just made me cringe. Personally, I can’t believe people would put such pictures on a page for the entire the world to see. I honestly hope that those pictures aren’t real, but it is sad knowing that certain babies are born deformed, unhealthy, and with diseases. An interesting page of modern times that I can relate to is the O. J.
Simpson page. I can relate to this because this is one major trial that practically everyone in the country had some kind of an idea what was going on. Rotten dot com shows a few photographs of the murder of Nicole Simpson and Ron Goldman. The most eye catching of these pictures is one that appeared on the cover of a London magazine. This photo was a close up of Nicole Simpson’s face covered with blood. Other photos on the Simpson page contain Ron Goldman’s corpse and three other pictures of Nicole Simpson as she lays dead.
"Writers are like photographers," Donald Murray reminds us. The photographer doesn't snap a picture while scanning an entire scene. Instead he selects a single focus (239-240). This analogy was exceptionally powerful to me. The idea of looking through a camera lens out at an event or a topic just has wonderful possibilities. You could do a panoramic photo, including the wide picture, seeing how ...
Rottendot com has yet another sick page that caught my attention. This one is called ‘Mayhem #3’. There are five pictures on this particular page. They are just five miscellaneous pictures of dead bodies, of course. One photo is of a man with his body twisted after being in a drunk driving car accident. A strange one is a picture of a boy with his jaw removed.
His jaw was removed to punish his mother whiles he was still alive, but then the mother was killed soon after. Another really messed up picture is just of a man ” she ad and one of his hands. This man was murdered by his brother and was then put into the tomb of his mother. Overall, I think that this site is worth viewing. Even though I disagree with several of the photographs that are displayed through the web site, I believe it is essential to know that the world and society aren’t perfect. My personal opinion on the form of the page is that it could ” ve been more complex.
It was made so that anyone can access any part of the website. I think it should ” ve been more complex only for the reason so kids couldn’t have total access to view the explicit content of the entire website. As for the content of the page, some of it was disturbing and extremely gruesome.
