Best Answer

There were various temptresses, apart from the women in the portside bars.

Mermaids were half women and half fish and would take an unwary matelot down into the deep.

The sirens sang to them from rocks and drew them to crashing their boat against the rocks.

Accounts differ, but most historians agree that "The Sirens" were probably a large factor in the "sailor-enticing" effort.

Who is marcial baby ama?

Marcial Ama gained folk hero status when his biography was filmed in 1976 with the movie "Bitayin Si baby Ama" starring the late action star Rudy Fernandez and local sex siren Alma Moreno. According to the film he was jailed for stealing money for a friend's education. His youthful good looks have made him a target inside the jail and he was eventually nicknamed "Baby" on account of his baby-face. He was repeatedly sodomised and the final straw was when his pregnant wife was lured to a small hut by a prison guard and was raped. The event proved traumatic to the couple as his wife chose to commit suicide with their unborn child. That's where all hell broke loose. He became a "hit man" inside the cell, rapidly disposing his tormentors and eventualy becoming leader of his own prison mob. He was credited for leading the biggest jail-riot in Muntinlupa Penitentiary history and was sentenced to death via electric chair. And the movie "Anak Ni Baby Ama" followed with the life story of his son Kevin "Baby Ama" Calo, who was also sentenced to death via electric chair. Additional Info: His given the nickname "Baby Ama" because he is the youngest most notorious leader of one of the rival gangs inside the prison in his time. His gang was "SIGE SIGE" and his mortal enemy who was PRIMITIVO "Ebok" ALA of "OXO" gang. Because of this two, the biggest and bloodiest jail riot in Muntinlupa arised and led to them to be sentenced of death in electricution, Baby Ama was electricuted in 1961 at the age of 16 but "Ebok" is given a second chance. KEVIN "BABY AMA" CALO - hes not the son of Marcial "Baby" Ama. He was named "Baby Ama" because he's life story inside the prison is more likely to Marcial Ama. He is also became a leader in the prison where Marcial Ama's prison, and they both electricuted in the same reason. Or in other word his like the resurrection of MARCIAL "BABY" AMA

What is the book ''The Hobbit'' about?

I'll take this from the blurb of the 1995 edition:"Whisked away from his comfortable, unambitious life in his hobbit-hole in Bag End by Gandalf the wizard and a company of dwarves, Bilbo Baggins finds himself caught up in a plot to raid the treasure hoard of Smaug the Maginificent, a large and very dangerous dragon...“Basically, this young hobbit living quite comfortably in hobbit-luxury is thrown into an adventure with a party of dwarves and a mischevious wizard (Gandalf, Mithrandir, Stormcrow-a few of the names he is called) which is filled with excitement and despair as Thorin Oakenshield struggles onwards to try and reclaim his homeland Erebor, situated in The Lonely Mountain. But, long ago, Thorin's grandfather Thror (or Thrain, can't remember) became obsessed with gold, which immediately lured the baby dragon, who was a feisty flame of fire which took over Erebor. I won't tell you anymore other l'll ruin the whole story for you (although l may have already-sorry.)I love LOTR and The Hobbit, so if you have any other questions you would like to ask please message me on YouTube-my account name is MoonlightWalnut. I hope you enjoy reading the best Fantasy Books ever!
