Share Your World – Week 25

There’s an old saying that perfectly sums up my store’s post-fire recovery…

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!

A life sized snow globe.

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!

Thinking and doing at the same time! (Or should that be “dooing?”

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…

Naughty squirrels need love too!

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…

Unless this is your target audience…

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.

The religious stories are still good as a source of parody, though.

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…

Black Friday will be a breeze after the clusterfuck of clueless temps sent in to “help” us clean and restock the store…

  1. I’m glad that speaking our mind is a no go… specially at facebook… my life would be a constant sh*tstorm

  2. Sounds like the typical “corporate” reaction to a store fire……hopefully it won’t look like “Fifty Shades of Meccamania” when you next report for duty. Bravo for getting through the philosophical questions this week without going outside the lines with your crayon.

  3. Hmm, I suppose speaking ones mind is what gets us in trouble, but others admire us for it. So, it’s a double edged sword really. As for science and religion, I concur with your point of view, embrace separate but equal. Great post Evil!

    A great squirrel photo! So you have a photo of Mitzi disguised as a woman in bikini and money, I didn´t know she can do that. Interesting.

    Now you have an idea for another SCT episode.

  6. Was that scantily clad woman with the humongous chest balls the model FOR Mitzi? If she’s a relative or special to you in some way, my apologies if that question were crude. But given the majority of $1 bills showing in that photo, the term ‘stripper’ came galloping into my mind’s eye and now it won’t leave. It wants some of Fuzziwig’s finest before it’ll do that….. Thanks Squirrel for Sharing Your World and yes, that squirrel photo is the cutest. So is the cat… ❤

    • Naw, she’s just some random stripper I grabbed off Google to put in a post years ago, and I reuse it so much that some people enjoy seeing her show up again and again. Some people are stars of The Nest, and they don’t even know it…

  7. See, now, I understood the beauty vs. mortality question completely differently. I was simply comparing the putrid dead to the slightly less putrid living. Apparently, I was totally on the wrong track, but I was sure that dead people were smellier and essentially less aesthetically pleasing than living persons — even those who tend to neglect their personal hygiene.

  8. Why is beauty associated with mortality? Does that have something to do with that stupid saying ‘only the good die young’? Or maybe it’s ‘live fast, die young and leave a good- looking corpse’? I’m stumped, too.

    I don’t understand the second question either.
    I’m pretty sure it’s never ever okay to tell someone that dress makes them look fat. Even if they ask and you believe it…

  10. Glad you survived the post fire week even if the temps weren’t as helpful as you’d like. Warm, breathing bodies aren’t always the best solution, but it keeps the staff from keeling over from exhaustion.
    P.S. That beer drinking photo seems precisely the market being sought. *Sigh*
