Share Your World For July 18, 2022

It’s Monday, so without further ado

In one sentence, how would you sum up the internet? One of these days, it’s gonna catch on (as I often tell Mary)…

Looks more like me than you think.

Is true beauty subjective or objective? It’s subjective, although there have been attempts to quantify it by comparing the proportions of the human face to the Golden Ratio, abbreviated Φ which is equal to 1.618+. It’s related to the Fibonacci sequence, if that helps (and I would guess it doesn’t). This page explains it, kind of.

The “Fibonacci Spiral”

How many chickens would it take to kill an elephant? Depends on how you plan to kill the elephant. I mean, you could stuff a chicken in its windpipe and it would eventually asphyxiate the elephant, or you could keep shoving the chickens in the elephant until the beaks started poking out of its hide… My God, why would you want to kill an elephant in the first place, and why would your weapon of choice be one or more chickens? I mean, the last thing the chickens want to be involved in is pachydermicide….

HALP! Someone’s trying to stuff chickens in me!
HALP! Someone’s trying to stuff me into an elephant!

Remember, Melanie, YOU started it…

If your five-year-old self suddenly found themselves inhabiting your current body, what would your five-year-old self do first? Five-year-old me would cry and wonder what they had done to deserve being stuck in this enormous, unwieldy body, half of which doesn’t work. In other words, the same thing 66-year-old me does from time to time.

What’s an aspect of your personality that you’re grateful for? My ability to laugh at things rather than becoming homicidal, and that I’m just codependent enough to keep myself from saying things that would really upset you, my readers.

A question I ask myself several times a day. Usually, the answer is no.

  1. Had to laugh at your last one; I think we are all a little homicidal but we have to chill. And I walk that fine line on my blog too. Sometimes I say the quiet parts out loud though. Oops!


  2. Thank you John for Sharing Your World. I can always rely on you for the funnies. Your perspective (from the elephant OR the chicken’s point of view) had me holding my sides, they hurt because I laughed so hard. Great answer too! Who would choose to kill an elephant (aren’t they endangered now?) and why would a chicken be a choice of weapon. Although some of those old birds are pretty tough…🤔 The cat GIF was so cute and if it looks more like you than you care to say, well you’re awfully cute too then! Heh. In an artistic sense I can see why the The “Fibonacci Spiral” is beautiful. There’s something about symmetry that just pleases the eye. “Is this the hill you want to die on?” has always been (once I matured enough to appreciate it) something I’ve been told to remember in a vis a vis “pick your battles carefully” kind of way. If you look at it from that perspective, most things are NOT worth ‘dying’ for. Thanks John so much for the wonderful SYW post and I’ll see you in those very funny papers! Have a great week!


    1. You are funny and I love the gifs. Poor elephant! I’d never want to kill an elephant with a chicken or anything else. I wonder if elephants are scared of chickens? Why that question?
      The internet? Look up history or sweet pussy cats for 2 hrs?
      My 5 yr old self would wonder why I’d be so top heavy:).
      I’m pretty good at reading people and have used this to help in my job etc…
      I think beauty is subjective. Look at the different cultures, placing rings around my lower lip looks gross but to tgat tribe it is a symbol of beauty. How many times have we seen a face we think is beautiful or handsome until they open their mouth. If they turn out to be mean or stupid, we don’t find them appealing any more. We’ll men might still take the gal to bed but that would be it.:))
