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.

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!

“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?

And now for this week’s Share Your World (https://sparksfromacombustiblemind.com/2019/07/08/share-your-world-7-8-19/

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

There is only one season for me…Hallowe’en!

What is your favorite summer time clothing?   

Hoodies…ok, that doesn’t sound like summer clothing, but I do love my hoodies!

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

Salads?  Bite your tongue!  I was going to say we BBQ, but we do that all year round, because the weather doesn’t change a lot here.

Do you like watermelon?   What’s your favorite summertime treat?

No. But I do love me some cold white wine in the summertime (ok, not just the summertime, but that was the question!)

And now for this week’s Share Your World (https://sparksfromacombustiblemind.com/2019/06/03/share-your-world-6-3-19/

Do you think there is such a thing as a ‘gendered’ brain?  

Is this what they mean when they ask which “brain” a man is thinking with?

What is the silliest fear you have? 

None of my fears are silly!  Including my quite understandable fear of raisins.

Out of your family members, who are you closest to?

Who ever I’m sitting next to at the table.

What is something you’ll NEVER do again?

I’d tell you, but I’d have to kill you.

If you’d like, please share a photo or a comment about something good that’s happened recently!  Thanks!

Do you consider yourself a pessimist or an optimist?

I’m pessimistically optimistic.

Can War ever be just?

It is never just war.

Think about the people you love most in your life, what do you do for them?

I post pictures like this:

Are you health conscious?

I am now wondering what unhealth conscious might look like, or health unconcious…

Share Your World – May 20, 2019

And now for this week’s Share Your World (https://sparksfromacombustiblemind.com/2019/05/20/share-your-world-5-20-19/).

Is it better to suspect something (bad or hurtful) and not know or to have your worst fears confirmed by sure knowledge?

Are we talking about Game of Thrones???

What makes you laugh aloud? Crack up? Laugh until your sides split? When was the last time you had a great big belly laugh?

Things no one else seems to understand…

Do you suppose Noah had woodpeckers in the ark? If he did, where did he keep them? Apologies to the Darwinians in the crowd…this is merely for fun, okay?

With the termites…

Why is “Charlie” short for “Charles when they are the same number of letters?

Because, English

What happened in your world this past week that made you feel thankful, joyful or grateful?

Kittens getting along.  It only looks like they’re trying to bite each other’s heads off.

Share Your World – May 13, 2019

And now for this week’s Share Your World (https://sparksfromacombustiblemind.com/2019/05/13/share-your-world-5-13-19/).

What social stigma does society need to get over already?

The way Game of Thrones is ending!

What was the last photo you took?

When was the last time you snooped and found something or found out something you wish you hadn’t?

Well, not snooping so much as spreading rumours, or as I like to call them: Predictions.  And I wish I hadn’t known…

What’s the most comfortable bed or chair you’ve ever slept in?

Let’s make this Elliot’s question…

Share Your World – May 6, 2019

And now for this week’s Share Your World (https://sparksfromacombustiblemind.com/2019/05/06/share-your-world-5-6-19/).

Do you believe in soul mates? If so, do you think there is only one person meant to share that bond with you, out there in the world?  (credit to Cyranny of Cyranny’s Cove)

Well, yeah, because without a sole mate, I would only have one shoe…oh, wait….didn’t read the whole question….

Ice cream cone, shake or other ice cream concoction?

No.  Unless it’s strawberry, and a shake.

What would be the hat to end all hats? What could you wear on your head that would make people stop what they are doing and stare in awe and amazement?

Not sure Jasper will cooperate though…

What would be the worst “buy one get one free” sale of all time?

Cheeto presidents…
