Share Your World – October 21, 2019

And now for this week’s Share Your World (https://sparksfromacombustiblemind.com/2019/10/21/share-your-world-10-21-19/

Had any good conversations with yourself lately? Did you listen to yourself? And how’d that work out for you?   (Credit Allie Bean   https://thespectacledbean  )

What do you think?  About what? Have I had a good conversation with myself lately?  No – just shooting the breeze…

What is gravity and how does it work?

It’s heavy, man.

What is more real – Mind or Matter?

In my mind, it doesn’t matter.

Should a vegetarian (or vegan) eat animal crackers? 

No one should eat animal crackers.

Name (describe) something you wouldn’t want to run into in a dark and deserted wood or alley.   Politicians are a given, so skip those please.  Thanks! 

The dark shadow of my past.

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

Depends on how they are used.

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

Around here, only kittens pose for the camera!

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

I still have some leftovers from dinner the other night…I was a lot younger then…

Do you like to decorate for different holidays?

Maybe

Are we losing the art of listening in comparison to simply hearing?

What was that 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?

Nothing to see here…

Do you think that these discussions should be freely discussed and written about more?

What discussions?

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

I’m probably better off not knowing…

Why is there still ‘stuff’ we simply just don’t understand despite our progressive world?

I don’t understand why.


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

That sounds like one of those things we simply don’t understand.


What is your most essential kitchen tool?  (Can be a person you know.  For the non-cooks in the crowd).

That’s not a nice thing to call Kevin (my essential BBQ’er…)  He’s in the background of this shot, but you can’t see him ’cause he doesn’t like to be seen…

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

Deny, deny, deny.

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

The last one.

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

Whichever one gets me free pizza.  (look, I’m hungry…)

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

I’m there already…

When you’re 90 years old, what do you suppose will matter most to you?

Becoming 91.

What’s the best way to spend a rainy afternoon?

Having an excuse not to do anything.

What is one thing you don’t understand about yourself?

Only one thing?

When was the last time you tried something to look ‘cool’ (hip), but it ended in utter embarrassment?   Details?

I don’t have to try to look hip.

And now for this week’s Share Your World (https://sparksfromacombustiblemind.com/2019/08/26/share-your-world-8-26-19/

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

Rather have kittens.

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

Relieved myself of what?

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

Any department store that thinks it’s a  good idea to put the perfume section at the entrance.

How drunk is drunk enough?

Depends on the day.

 

Share Your World – August 12, 2019

And now for this week’s Share Your World (https://sparksfromacombustiblemind.com/2019/08/12/share-your-world-8-12-19/

What makes you laugh?

Knowing that laughing will freak some people out.

What’s the world coming to?  (Credit to Mel of Crushed Caramel…)

The next stop on the crazy train express.

In one sentence sum up the Internet.

Full of sound and fury, signifying nothing.

If over time you replace parts on a car, at what point does it stop being the same car you bought? How many parts do you need to replace to make it a new car?

That sounds like a question for Buddha…or Elliot.

And now for this week’s Share Your World (https://sparksfromacombustiblemind.com/2019/08/05/share-your-world-8-5-19/

So, warning from our Share your World host: “This week’s Share Your World is rather grim.  More hatred and divisiveness in America, resulting in a lot of innocent people dying at the hands of unbalanced men.   With guns.    So if you’d rather not participate this week, no worries.   Next week should see a return to a more upbeat theme.   All the questions this week are philosophical in nature.”.

I, myself, will participate, but am choosing the questions I answer. My blog is, for the most part, non-political, but I am, for the most part, cynical.  Hence, my answers.

Does life have a reason (meaning)?

Does it really need to?

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

Oh, probably.  At least the world as we know it.

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

No, and no.  Laws alone don’t really change the way people think or behave.

If death is inevitable, why bother doing anything?

Because … bacon!  And now, a Kitten!

Share Your World – July 22, 2019

And now for this week’s Share Your World (https://sparksfromacombustiblemind.com/2019/07/22/share-your-world-7-22-19/

“This week I’m doing something a bit different.   All (but one) of the questions were someone else’s idea first.    I’ve credited these wonderful bloggers and hope you enjoy them.   If you haven’t visit the bloggers, you might find one or two (or all) to follow, if you don’t already!”

What happens if you-stare at the mirror for too long in the dark?   (credit to Ursula of An Upturned Soul.  If you haven’t read Ursula’s blog, go over and just wade in and enjoy.   To me she’s fascinating and what she writes about is always worth the journey).

Nothing good.

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

People.

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

If I could keep mental lists, I wouldn’t need actual ones…

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).

American football, or the other kind?

Lastly:

Gratitude/Thankful/Enriching:  What has happened in your life that made you feel uplifted and happy, if only temporarily?

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

They’re not around to piss us off anymore.

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).  

Because it makes for a great plot twist.

Have gadgets and apps taken away emotions?

Not taken so much as siphoned off slowly for use when they rise up to destroy us all.

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

Do you disagree?
