With the Calendar Squirrel
swimsuit competition going on the past few months, I forced myself to get the weekly Share Your World post done every Tuesday like a good boy. Now that it’s over (Well, the complete “calendar” will be revealed tomorrow), I can get back to good old fashioned procrastination and occasionally stall until Thursday! Melanie’s SYW questions this week were a bit heavy, requiring some extra time to manufacture really horrible answers to. But it’s time to face the muzak, which makes no sense since your ears are on the sides of your head…..
Can we ever experience anything objectively? Why or why not?
Our entire worlds are made up of our unique personal feelings and experiences. True objectivity is an illusion that people not only believe is possible, but is something they can actually attain in how they see things. Twenty random people can all observe one event and come up with twenty slightly to vastly different takes on it that they all truly and deeply believe are objective and rational. One plus one equals two, but not to someone whose worldview is binary…
Do humans have a soul? Do animals have a soul?
If humans didn’t have a soul, we wouldn’t have the music of James Brown or Aretha Franklin. If animals didn’t have a soul, we wouldn’t have the music of George Clinton…
Why are people told to respect the dead?
It can’t be because they are no longer here to defend themselves, because we talk badly about people all the time outside of their range of attention. It must be because we believe the spirits of the dead are always lingering around us….. just waiting for that moment we badmouth or mock them. That’s when the shit is going to really going to hit the fan…. poltergeist style!
Without using the names of specific people, discuss “the ideal” President or other world leader.
I’m not going to touch this with a mile and a half long pole. I’ll only add that I think that some form of professional appearance and civility is the utmost requirement of anyone in the top office of the Free World. I’ll leave you to judge whether that’s currently applicable…
UNCLE SAM: You got a problem with my behavior, son?
No, I don’t mean you. Your nasty and corrupt attitude is fine for my Shelf Critter Theatre stories. We don’t live in the Shelf Critter world, though, and shouldn’t be subjected to such fucked up shenanigans in real life…
Share your gratitude! Stories, images or thoughts all welcome.
I’m so thankful I finally had the nads to cancel my cable TV service a couple weeks ago. Today is the last day of the current billing cycle, meaning that I can now start saving $100 a month by not paying for a service I had quit using years ago! Yay money!
