SHARE YOUR WORLD 8-5-19



  • Does life have a reason (meaning)?
  • Will the world come to an end by human hands (man’s actions)?
  • Will stricter laws make a better world?  Would less strict law make it better?
  • If death is inevitable, why bother doing anything?
  • Are thoughts and prayers useful?


Does life have a reason (meaning)?

If one chooses to live a life with meaning, it will have meaning. Life, like many other things, can be a useless squalor (which has a meaning of its own). You choose.

Will the world come to an end by human hands (man’s actions)?

Nope.

Will stricter laws make a better world?  Would less strict law make it better?

Criminals don’t obey laws. Evil will always find a way.

If death is inevitable, why bother doing anything?

Everyone knows that death is inevitable. But it is sad that some people never have a reason to live.

Are thoughts and prayers useful?

I have seen prayer change many things.

  • Is it wrong to sell store-bought pastries at a bake sale?
  • Have you ever interacted with the police?
  • What will you remember most about this past year (this question will show up again, in late December, just FYI)
  • Is it better to have fungus on your toes, your tongue, or your pizza?
  • What is one slang word that makes your skin crawl?


Is it wrong to sell store-bought pastries at a bake sale?

Are we talkin’ cakes? Pies? Donuts? Chocolate-covered donuts? Raspberry-filled donuts? Maple- Iced donuts? It’s never wrong to sell a great donut.

Have you ever interacted with the police?

We have very friendly local police. They have pulled me over often to ask about how things are? And if I in agreement with the neighborhood speed limits? And they are even so kind as to check the safety of my tires and backlights almost every visit.  They are very thoughtful.

What will you remember most about this past year (this question will show up again, in late December, just FYI)

I remember having eggs and bacon for breakfast today. Or was that yesterday?

Is it better to have fungus on your toes, your tongue, or your pizza?

Fungi are wonderful pets. I think the best is the green and black kind that grows on spaghetti left on the back counter from a meal two weeks ago.

What is one slang word that makes your skin crawl?

Oh, whatever. OMG!. Like I care. As if.

What happens if you-stare at the mirror for too long in the dark?   (Credit to Ursula of An Upturned Soul)

If you stare into a mirror too long in the dark, you are two weeks late with the next set of answers for SHARE YOUR WORLD. (Apparently that is what happened, I have no other excuse?)

Do you think you’re judgmental?  What tends to bring it out in you?  (Credit to Ashleyleia for this one)

Of course I am not judgmental. Who said I was judgmental. Probably that low-down sneaky bugger that lives three houses down, or was it four. It could have been either of them. You should see the way they park their cars in the driveway. They pull in just as if they own the place. And then those stupid dogs that greet them. The one whit the beady little eyes probably said it. Never trust a person with those kind of eyes.

Do you work better with actual lists or with mental lists?  (Credit to Sadje of Keep it Alive)

You silly thing. There is no such thing as a mental list … those things are called thoughts. Look it up,

Would you go streaking across a football field during a game for a million dollars (insert your own country’s currency), knowing there’s a 50/50 chance you’ll get arrested for indecent exposure? (This one is mine.  Yeah, my mind wanders to some highly strange places sometimes).

You would not believe the number of ladies that have asked me that very same question.

  • Why do we seem to respect the dead more than the living?

  • Why is beauty associated with morality?  Or not?   (a few weeks back I asked a similar question, but the key word was MORTALITY, not MORALITY).
  • Have gadgets and apps taken away emotions?
  • Is there a perfect life?  What’s your version of a perfect life if you care to share?


Why do we seem to respect the dead more than the living?

The dead can’t talk back?

Why is beauty associated with morality?  Or not?   (a few weeks back I asked a similar question, but the key word was MORTALITY, not MORALITY). 

Who does that? Have you not watched any resent television series… the more beautify, the more deceitful! And you know if it’s on television, it has to be true.

Have gadgets and apps taken away emotions?

Of course not! That’s why we can now express ourselves with 2,823 emojis (according to the Unicode Standard). And I am such that every time one of the emojis is pressed the sender’s heart radiates the love and compassion it intends to send.

Is there a perfect life?  What’s your version of a perfect life if you care to share?

The perfect life …

  • Waking up in a cheerful mood.
  • Enjoying two scrambled eggs, three strips of bacon, and one buttered toast.
  • A quick peruse of the morning news and you find you are NOT in the obituaries (My dad would always check each morning.)
  • A small chore list.
  • A fresh salad, two deviled eggs and a side of scrumptious sliced fruit.
  • A leisurely stroll through the park (with the smell of freshly mowed grass still in the air) sometime during the day to converse with the squirrels and the robins (and any other of their relatives that venture near your path).
  • A steak and fries, spaghetti and garlic bread, or some other worthy supper.
  • A best seller and your favorite beverage to evening pleasures.
  • A winning BRAVES baseball game on the radio to fall asleep enjoying.

That is the life.

  • Are you a Summer person?   A Winter person?   Or one of the other seasons suits you best?
  • What is your favorite summer time clothing?   
  • Do you find yourself eating out more during the summer?  Or making ‘cold food’ like salads and stuff you can heat in the microwave?
  • Do you like watermelon?   What’s your favorite summertime treat?


Are you a Summer person?   A Winter person?   Or one of the other seasons suits you best?

I am a not really a seasonal person at all any longer. As a younger lad, just a few years ago, I would have been a Spring-Summer-Fall person. I enjoyed the outdoors- but not the cold weather. My season of choice would have been weather where I could hike, play basketball and tennis (outdoors), mow, and play horseshoes and croquet.

What is your favorite summer time clothing? 

Barefoot

Do you find yourself eating out more during the summer?  Or making ‘cold food’ like salads and stuff you can heat in the microwave?

I have just taken up learning to love my kitchen. I love fresh cookies, cinnamon rolls, and and brownies. For cold meals, deviled eggs and a bacon lettuce and tomato sandwich can really hit the spot.

Do you like watermelon?   

YES! And freshly-ripened cantaloupe as well!

What’s your favorite summertime treat?

Banana splits! (But they are great in the winter, too!)

  • Would (or do) you stop to help (presumably) stranded folks by the side of the road?
  • Do you think the world is less mannerly today than in past times OR are we just more touchy and manners are as they’ve always been?
  • What happens if you’re scared half to death, TWICE?
  • If ALL the world’s a stage, where does the audience sit?


Would (or do) you stop to help (presumably) stranded folks by the side of the road?

I am not a skilled person for helping in stranded automobile situations. I am great at making phone calls if help is needed.

Do you think the world is less mannerly today than in past times OR are we just more touchy and manners are as they’ve always been?

Many people now believe that if you do not believe just as they believe ON EVERY TOPIC you are the enemy. It is a very egocentric world. This is even true for many of the 60+ crowd! This makes for very shallow friendships …

What happens if you’re scared half to death, TWICE?

I am still the kid with the towel tied around his neck poised on the roof at the back of the house. I am Superman! NOTHING can scare me half to death!

If ALL the world’s a stage, where does the audience sit?

There is no audience. You are a participant whether you want to be or not!

Yes!

Why is beauty associated with mortality?

Whoa! That’s deep. (This is me thinking…) 

If everyone spoke their mind (told the literal truth), would this world be a better place?
