Share Your World for 4 Apr 2022

Time for more GIF’s and snappy comebacks in answer to Melanie’s questions!

Are you more productive at night or in the morning? Do you think it’s possible to change and get used to another schedule? I used to be more productive in the morning; now I’m more productive in the evening, because I sleep pretty late in the morning. "Early to bed, early to rise" would be a solution, but I’m retired, so screw that noise.

What’s the biggest vehicle you’ve driven? If you don’t drive, what’s the biggest vehicle you’ve ridden in? I drove a 15-foot U-Haul truck from Chicago to Atlanta when we finally divested ourselves of Mary’s building. Coming down the mountains in Tennessee was no fun… I should have insisted on taking I-65…

At least I didn’t break anything or run over any trees (or people)

What songs would be played on a loop in hell? "99 Bottles of Beer on the Wall." All the way from 99 down to zero then back up to 99 then back down to zero…

On the way back up to 99, here’s how the verses go:

"n bottles of beer on the wall, n bottles of beer, go to the store, steal some more, n+1 bottles of beer on the wall!" where n is an integer and 99 ≥ n ≥ 0

What does it mean to be a person? What constitutes "personhood"? Being a person is to have both a body (a physical being) and a soul (an essence, the parts of you that aren’t your physical being). The soul is the combination of the person’s personality, emotions, intellect, morality, memory, judgment, imagination, sense of humor, thoughts, opinions, reactions, etc. and, most importantly, conscience and free will. Other animals may have some or even most of these things, but it’s the conscience and free will that distinguish us. When physical death comes, the essence of the person, the soul, lives on in the hearts and minds of the people to whom he or she mattered.

How were your spirits (mood) over the past week? Very good, thanks to Door Dash and Amazon Fresh/Whole Foods. Delivery is great!

  1. I am more a late afternoon person. I start feeling in my zone by around 1 and can go until 7 then the jammies come out to watch some tv. That song would be bad as Ada Mae brown knows in the movie Ghost (may have said her name wrong). I am thinking most Rap songs, That stupid Umbrella song by Rihanna. I also like your personhood definition but would say that Putin is not a person whereas many animals have souls. I am so glad you were in good spirits. Mine had highs and lows (had to put my doggie to sleep)


    1. I’ve thought that about the song for years. As for the “personhood” definition, I think that’s right out of the Baltimore Catechism or some theology class I took once upon a time.
