Each week, Sparks from a Combustible Mind (hosted by Melanie) offers its followers FOUR intriguing questions for insightful responses.


THIS WEEK’S FOUR QUESTIONS:

What mythical creature would improve the world most if it existed?  (If you don’t know, just choose something that you think would improve things.)

Should the death penalty be re-instated?  Why or why not?

Spontaneity Or Stability?

Can a dog/cat suffer? What about an ant? What about a plant? What about a bacteria cell?  Why do some humans think we’re the only species that does suffer?  Your thoughts?


MY BRILLIANT ANSWERS:

What mythical creature would improve the world most if it existed? 

A well-trained fire-breathing dragon could be very useful in forest management. The ability to set instant back burns could save millions of acres and hundreds of lives.


Should the death penalty be re-instated?  Why or why not?

It costs approximately 1.3 million dollars to house an incarcerated person for life without parole.

I costs more than 3.8 million dollars to follow through with the death penalty.

With life without parole- a mistake can be corrected.

Nothing can be corrected once the death penalty has been carried out.

I believe in states having the right for the death penalty. But I believe that life without parole is likely more beneficial to society.


Spontaneity or Stability?

Each has its time and place. I’d like a serving of both please.


Can a dog/cat suffer? What about an ant? What about a plant? What about a bacteria cell?  Why do some humans think we’re the only species that does suffer?  Your thoughts?

Wow. What a deeply disturbing question.

There is evil in the world. And evil personified enjoys being cruel. Not meant as a judgement. Just a fact.

“To suffer” a creature has to feel pain and experience emotions.

From the definition of “to suffer” … the rest of your questions can be answered.

  1. Thanks Roger for Sharing Your World. You’re quite right…suffering pretty much covers everything. Great GIFs as well! That dragon would be useful in a lot of situations! Just not in the western U.S. this year (drier than a bone out here). Having a little spontaneity and a little stability is a very balanced way to live. Have a great week!
