Every week Melanie over at sparksfromacombustiblemind posts several questions on her blog for anyone who has the guts to answer. She has all the rules at her place, so click on the link above and get the lowdown on the details. Here are this week’s questions along with my answers.
Had any good conversations with yourself lately? Did you listen to yourself? And how’d that work out for you? (Credit Ally Bean)
I’ve always talked to myself, much to the chagrin of my family, because I’ve found that often I’m the only one who cares what I have to say. So, yes, I’ve had a lot of good conversations with myself quite recently. One of my favorite topics is “How I f***ed up my life and how I would do things differently if given a chance.” It’s not an especially productive use of my time, but it’s highly entertaining.
What is gravity and how does it work?
A friend of mine once told me that there’s no such thing as gravity, the world sucks.
The scientific definition is that it’s a natural phenomenon by which everything with mass or energy are brought toward one another. (Wikipedia is The Blogger’s Best Friend™.) So, since the Earth is bigger than we are, we are attracted to the Earth. The Moon is attracted to the Earth in much the same way, except it’s drifting along in space and we’re pretty well stuck here. As for how it works, it seems to work great.
What is more real, Mind or Matter?
Matter really can’t be denied, although there are some who believe that all matter is a construct of the mind. Come to think of it, dreams are strictly a thing of the mind but can be more real than reality, if you let them be. And I do.
Should a vegetarian (or vegan) eat animal crackers?
That’s up to them.
Halloween Question: 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!
