  • Does a life insurance policy cover murder?

    Best answer: Some do, some don't. So you can say the policy will pay out, or not, as the plot requires. Most of the policies I've had won't pay if I'm killed as a result of war or terrorism, or if I commit suicide, or if I was doing something "reckless" like skydiving or taking illegal drugs.

    Best answer: Some do, some don't. So you can say the policy will pay out, or not, as the plot requires. Most of the policies I've had won't pay if I'm killed as a result of war or terrorism, or if I commit suicide, or if I was doing something "reckless" like skydiving or taking illegal drugs. I could probably get a policy that would cover at least some of those if I was willing to pay more.

    In most developed countries, the government publishes figures for how long people are living, and what they're dying from. If you consider a large enough group of people, you can predict quite accurately how many of them will die in a given year, and so how much the company will have to pay out. The company can then set the premiums at a level that makes a profit for them. The cheaper insurance policies will cover the common causes of death and exclude the rarer ones, because that mucks up the estimates of how many people will die this year, and would put a dent in the company's profits.

    The only problem you might have is that if your victim is very rich, it might not seem plausible for them to have a policy that doesn't cover everything that the insurance companies are willing to cover.

    I have observed that traditional school education system causes young people to hate reading because they are forced to read things that do not interest them and oppressive means of evaluation are used. In this way young people end up associating reading as something awful and they avoid it. They will only read by obligation and not for their own benefit. Please anyone share tips or advice on how to make young people become interested in reading again and read without forcing them.

  • Books and Authors: How do I write that a character is taking a dump?

    I can't even use metaphors for this. Like, "He sat down and soon he roughly fed the toilet with his sh*t"? Yeah, I'm not saying that. Are there at least any formal words for "crap" and t"to take a dump/leak"?

I don't know if it's all that necessary to describe what a cyanide pill looks like or whether or not it's recognizable by its color or shape or whatever but I just want this part to seem more realistic.

  • Are James Bond Films Based On Books?

    Best answer: Yes they are based on books.
    Books are often a lot better than the films themselves, they pack more in the book than the film.
    Both the films and the books are really good.

  • Who's smarter: Sherlock Holmes or Hercules Poirot?

    Best answer: Egg-shaped head vs. hawklike profile. I think it is grapefruits and oranges. One is as smart as the other.

    Best answer: The whole basis of slavery in the USA during the 17th 18th and 19th century was about how racial superiority. However, you said that this was a fantasy setting, and not historical fiction. Slavery, although a very sensitive and controversial topic in the States, is not inherently built on racism, as it existed in many different cultures and not just in between the White majority and Black minority. I say go for it, but be sensitive to not make the slaves all darker skinned and avoid racial cliches. I'd suggest doing more research, not only on African American slaves, but also slaves from cultures like the Aztecs and the Hebrews and the Greeks, where their slaves were people working to pay off life debts or captured and sold into slavery after their civilization was conquered by another. Just because you're young doesn't mean that you can't write about serious topics. I encourage you to keep writing and refine your writing skills! Good Luck!
