Well, this week has been a little hectic… so The Nest is tardy to the world sharing party once again. That’s OK, we’ll take our detention and use the time to get high with Fuzzywig in the back of the classroom. Melanie’s SYW questions this week deal mainly with philosophy, that doggone cereal box religion. The Nest bullshitted its way through philosophy papers the same way it bullshits itself through blogging, so this should be a piece of cake. Let’s have a logo!
Are you more a thinker or a doer?
Well, I’m obviously a thinker…. even if my thoughts probably shouldn’t see the light day. Not that thoughts can actually be out in the light…. since, you know, they’re not tangible things. A thought can’t get a tan or have its hair messed up by the wind. If I think up more bullshit thoughts about thoughts like this, I can get out of actually having to DO this question!
Why is beauty associated with mortality?
I don’t understand the question. This is what happens when you bullshit your way through school, kids. So I’ll just post some pics of The Nest’s beauties…
If everyone spoke their mind (told the literal truth), would this world be a better place?
I think the world would be a better place if there were more honesty, but not complete honesty. It’s OK to tell someone that dress makes them look fat is they specifically ask that and you actually believe it. If someone asks you what’s up, you should legally be able to give them a list of your current sorrows rather than just give the standard “nuthin’ much.” The bullshit kind of lies (I may set a record for using various forms of the word “bullshit” in a single post) that we say solely to make social situations less awkward…. I hate those. It’s probably for the best that beer ads don’t show what parties with their beverage really look like, though…
Can religious beliefs affect scientific thinking?
They shouldn’t, but they probably do. This may be coming from my non-religious point of view, but I think science and religion can be embraced separately but equal. Religion should be about morality and belief in whatever is to come… the mythology associated with each religion should be considered fable and not much more than that. To ignore science because it supposedly contradicts religion is just ignorant.
If you’d like to, share some gratitude in photo, written form or song.
I survived another week of FEMA at Mecca. With any luck, most of the cooks will be gone before I return to work Friday night…
