  • Social media (Facebook, Twitter, Instagram, Snapchat) a good thing, a bad thing or a mixture of both?
  • Are you camera shy or do you pose for the camera with confidence?
  • Is there anything you’ve kept from younger years for sentimental reasons alone?
  • Do you like to decorate for different holidays?


Social media (Facebook, Twitter, Instagram, Snapchat) a good thing, a bad thing or a mixture of both?

I have an opinion, but it is based on far-too-little-knowledge about these creatures. So I will go with the old saying, “Opinions are like bellybuttons. Everyone has one, and it is best for the world if they remain covered.”

Are you camera shy or do you pose for the camera with confidence?

I love to take pictures. I hate being in the picture.

Is there anything you’ve kept from younger years for sentimental reasons alone?

A teddy bear and other teddy-creatures.

Do you like to decorate for different holidays?

When I was teaching, we tried to find a holiday to decorate and celebrate every two weeks.

  • If confronted with a violent crime against a single individual in progress (severe beating, rape, assault) do you try to do something about it (phone authorities or confront the criminal, stop the crime) or do you figure it’s none of your business and walk or drive on by?  Worse (to me) would you record the crime for social media use without doing anything else?
  • If someone asked to be your apprentice and learn all that you know, what would you teach them?
  • First think of a product. Now, what would be the absolute worst brand name for one of those products?

(From Rory) If confronted with a violent crime against a single individual in progress (severe beating, rape, assault) do you try to do something about it (phone authorities or confront the criminal, stop the crime) or do you figure it’s none of your business and walk or drive on by?  Worse (to me) would you record the crime for social media use without doing anything else?

I completely agree with the recording for social media and NOT immediately reporting it is the worst!

If someone asked to be your apprentice and learn all that you know, what would you teach them?

Kindness is a superpower … not matter the apprenticeship.

First think of a product. Now, what would be the absolute worst brand name for one of those products?

For deodorant … STENCH! The tried an true you!!!

What ridiculous and untrue, yet slightly plausible, theories can you come up with for the cause of common ailments like headaches or cavities?

It is a well-documented fact that all microbes have tiny feelers just a centipedes and caterpillars. When one does not brush their teeth, floss between the teeth, and rinse with a proper antibotical liquid with enough frequency to remove the microbes, these microbes –using their tiny pinchers, drill into the gums near the root of one’s tooth and lays eggs. The enzymes in the salvia of one’s mouth does try to eliminate the microbes, but it is not strong enough to kill a living microbe. The enzyme is however about the stop the reproductive exodus of the laid eggs. The eggs do not hatch, but rot. Their rotting tissue exacerbates the root of the tooth, thus causing , not only bad breath, but tooth decay.

I have captured pictures of said exacerbation, but for a PG-13 site, they are rather graphic.

When was the last time you face palmed?  

When I listen to people discuss today’s issues as the fail to even try to distinguish fact from opinion. “I heard it, so it has to be true.”

When is censorship warranted?  Ever?

I don’t believe in censorship? But that statement is not really true.

Movie ratings are a form of censorship.

Many times, I am not sure that they are stringent enough?

So, once I have let the horse-out-of-the-barn and approved one form of censorship …

If there were commandments for the modern day world, what should (could, would) some of them be?  Get creative!

A new listening/comprehension tool has been invented. (There is no GPS attached!) The listening device is attached to every human being to be used during pressure discussions of in any political discussion. The device requires you to listen twice as much as you speak. The device works by way of a word count. True listening is required because there are follow-up questions to be responded to and answer correctly, before you are personally allowed to rejoin a conversation and continue talking. It will also provide a fact-check from pre-approved sources granted by the discussion participants. Opinions are allowed, but they must be stated up-front that this is an opinion. If said opinions are not stated as opinions, a series of red flashing lights and a-ou-ga horns with suddenly interrupt the discussion.

This listening apparatus is not completely bug-free, but it will be on the markets before the next Republican/ Democrat presidential debates coming to a channel near you.

I can’t wait to see the flashing lights and hear the horns!

(Of course, the commentators have to wear the discussion/control apparatus, too!)

What did you Google last?

Just before I pressed ‘publish’.

Who said I was a poor listener. I heard every word you said?

Now, what was the question again?

How often do you openly discuss with friends or here in WP with your readership topics that make you feel uncomfortable or may be taboo or stigma laden?  Do you think that these discussions should be freely discussed and written about more? (Courtesy of Rory)

Refer back to question one.

Did you have a nickname as a child and if so, what was [or what is it now]? (Courtesy of Rory)

No-no-no. Secrets are a must!

Why is there still ‘stuff’ we simply just don’t understand despite our progressive world? (Courtesy of Rory)

Some people are just plain stupid?

Would you rather double your height or lose half your weight?  (In response to last week’s double your weight, half your height query).  Thanks Leslie!  Suggestion by Leslie – Swot8

Wow … to double my height, at first thought, would be awesome for my favorite sport, basketball. But then at double the height basketball, the fun and skills needed would not be as enjoyable.

So not that one.

To be half my weight, I can stand to lose a few. Probably not half… But at my age, gaining weight seems to be superpower. So I’ll pick the half-your-weight and then enjoy a lot of steak and fries, spaghetti and meatball, and banana splits, until I am my perfect self.

After completing my list of ESSENTIAL KITCHEN TOOLS and deciding on my most cherished foods’ list and its accompanying recipes, all now than it needed is me and my culinary creativity to find the just-the-right taste for each of my precious foods.

So, my most essential tool for the Kitchen … my creativity.

What’s the first thing you’d do if you won the lottery or came into a huge fortune?

Become an anonymous Santa Claus.

Which decade do you think had the best sense of style?

The Sixties!!! Bell-bottom jeans, moccasins, tie-tied t-shirts, peace signs, polka-dotted clothes, and love beads. Not to mention … Chubby Checker, Bob Dylan, The Beatles, The Monkees, The Beach Boys, Creedence Clearwater Revival, The Rolling Stones …

Would you rather be half your height or double your weight?

At half my height, I could more easily fit into the little sport’s cars that I love, but then I don’t think I would have legs long enough to reach the pedals?

The scales in my bathroom already question the-one-person-at-a-time limit, after a Thanksgiving meal… Don’t think I want to go there.

I think I will wait for choice three.

If you wanted to get away from everyone totally, where would you hide?

If I told you, I could no longer use that as a hiding place. Tricky-tricky!

If you had to sum up the whole human species in 3 words, what would those words be?

  • Lions
  • Lambs
  • Lepers

Where is the strangest place you’ve relieved yourself?  Obviously in an emergency situation.

Now why would you ask such a question? The lions of the world would use that information in an unbecoming way.

What is the worst smelling place you’ve ever been?

There are several odious-reeking places that come to mind, I don’t think that I should rank them.

How drunk is drunk enough?

If you have had to ask that question in real life, you have had too much to drink.

What would be your solution to the over-population of the earth?  

The Moon, Mars, and Solar-Space-Camp …

What’s invisible but you wish people could see?

HATRED. Then people can’t pretend they didn’t mean what they said, and those that misspoke won’t have their lives ruined.

What’s the most ridiculous fact you know?

There are 56 (give or take) M&Ms in each 1.6 oz package. (That means there are less than 8 blues ones in each bag.)

What are the unwritten rules of where you work? If you don’t work (retired or unemployed) what are the unwritten rules you live your life by?

I am now retired and suddenly there seems to be an unwritten rule of

Why Today? It’ll Still Be There Tomorrow.

How do you feel about putting pineapple on pizza?

NO!

Toilet paper, over or under?

Who cares?

And if you do …

Get a life. (Please refer back to things that should have been invisibly stated.)

What’s the best type of cheese?

SHARP CHEDDAR! NUTHIN’ BETTER
