Share Your World for 21 Feb 2022

It’s that time once again! Melanie has the questions, I have the GIF’s.

What’s the most useful thing you know? How to look stuff up on the Internet.

What impact do you think it would have on the world if bananas were illegal? A lot bigger than you think. Monkeys would have to find something else to eat. People who pick bananas would have to find a new profession. Tarantulas would have to find some other produce to hide in to scare the crap out of produce clerks (I used to be a produce clerk, so I know all about that). There’d be no more banana pudding, banana cream pie, bananas foster, banana liqueur, or mashed and strained bananas for babies to eat. Songs like "Yes, We Have No Bananas" would likely have to be rewritten to use a legal fruit ("Yes, we have no pineapples"?). And that’s just for starters…

What social stigma does society need to just get over? We need to disabuse ourselves of the notion that skin color matters. When two humans reproduce, the result is another human. The "races" as we know them were created by anthropologists for their own purpose, and have little or no meaning outside that field. Acting as though they do has led to nothing more than pain and misunderstanding.

Reminds me of Willie

Do you prefer the moral viewpoint of consequentialism, which focuses on the consequences of actions, or deontology, which focuses on the innate rightness or wrongness of the actions themselves? Short answer: yes. Longer answer: They both have their merits and are both valid ways of looking at the world, and using one or the other exclusively might result in at best an incomplete picture. Ergo, yes.

Those are my answers and I’m stickin’ to ’em.

  1. The most useful thing? The printing press because, without that, us normal folk would never have learned to read. Thank you Gutenberg!
    I can’t eat bananas…I get an instant headache and feel like crap-it’s a great fruit but is high in carbohydrates. We would end up having speakeasies all over again and the black market would soar.
    I love…I mean, Love your next answer. I am sick of political correctness and being looked upon as a bad person if I like to read “To Kill A Mockingbird” or I like the song, “Baby, It’s Cold Outside.” There are more important things in the world than to be upset by this.
    As for the last one….I’m with kitty…What?? OK, I am in total agreement with you on this one as well. It depends on the situation.

    1. My theory, and it’s shared by many, is that if people decided to put their differences aside and worked together, we’d realize that most of the assumptions we made about each other were ideas planted in our heads by politicians and their operatives. Read the book “Virus Of The Mind” by Richard Brodie. I’ve read it several times, most recently when all this Covid-19 stuff started happening, and I realized that’s what’s behind the extreme measures that were taken to “stop the spread”…

  2. Thank you John for Sharing Your World and an amazing little tuneful start to my day! 😀 What a fun clip! The memes were spot on too! Thank you for always finding such amazing ones to share! By the way. Doing that eye thing to a dog (any dog), but particularly little dogs like Chihuahuas, might get you bitten. Apparently staring into the eyes of a dog is considered an act of aggression. But the meme was perfect all the same! 😀 Looking stuff up on the internet is a fine skill to have! Have a great week, and thanks again for the music! Splendid!

    1. I think whoever took the video of the dog porobably used a zoom lens, so they could stay a safe distance away. They can even do that after shooting the video. Chihuahuas are vicious little bastards, aren’t they?
