  • What is the meaning of true love?
  • Do acts of kindness have a motive? 
  • If we live in a civilized world why do we see so many distinctions between rich and poor?
  • Do we love ourselves more in the virtual world than in the real world?


Wow … You really went for the deep questions this week.

What is the meaning of true love?

All earthly love is to-some-degree-or-another selfish.

Do acts of kindness have a motive? 

Every act has a motivation.

If we live in a civilized world why do we see so many distinctions between rich and poor?

Since the beginning of time, there has always been the haves and the havenots. That will never change. living in a civilized world (or an uncivilized world) has nothing to do with it.

Do we love ourselves more in the virtual world than in the real world?

I suspect that this is true. Ask any mentally un-grounded person. The world seems to be full of them.

So that my answers do not come across as evading the depth of the questions, here is a philosophical premise:

EVIL exists in the world. It usually lives it life through people. The solution for a better world. Don’t be that person. (Yes, it is a little cheesy and far too simplified, but EVIL is a simple creature. You don’t have to look hard for it. You know it when you see it.)

PUMP IT UP

Finally, basketball season for college basketball is here.

DUKE, possibly the most hated college basketball team in the NCAA, is once again ranked in the top ten.

One reason… thier team:  great coach and outstanding recruits.

Another reason… THE FANS!



The Cameron Crazies rarely sit during a basketball game. And they are rarely quiet. They are almost as much fun to watch as the team!!!

Good luck to any commentator who dares to go court-side to bring an update. They won’t be heard.

A WAKE-UP CALL

 



The New England Patriots received a wake-up call from the Baltimore Ravens. I think that Brady and Company have some homework before they play in two weeks.

When I win the lottery and can buy a larger house, I will have room for my two favorite timepieces:

BURIED TREASURES

BURIED TREASURES



If I were ever lucky enough to find a buried treasure, would I want the chest to be filled with …

  • Spanish doubloons
  • Rubies, emeralds, and diamonds
  • Bars of gold

Or

  • The crown jewels and treasures of a long lost kingdom.

I’m OK with any of them!

I just don’t want my buried treasure to end up being Pandora’s cursed box.

AGENTS of S.H.I.E.L.D.

The Quinjet in MARVELS Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D. may not a true military fighter jet, but the fact that is has foldable wings IS NOT science fiction. There are planes that now fly our friendly skies that possess foldable wings.

If I were a pilot, I think the Quinjet: Zephyr-One would be awesome to fly!


FYI (1): I am presently re-watching MARVEL: Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D Seasons 1-5 before I get to Season Six.

FYI (2): The inhuman skills of Daisy and Yo-Yo are the best!
