Sharing My Merry World 16-12-2018

Here is my post for Melanie’s Share Your (Merry) World.

What’s the worst topping you could put on popcorn?
Pretty much anything, as popcorn is the food of the devil.

To be fair to popcorn, as a little kiddie I ate far too much at a circus or fairground and was violently ill. Now, even the thought of popcorn makes me feel queasy.

In what country did Silent Night originate?
I want to say Germany. But that’s probably just because I’m so familiar with the German version (Stille Nacht). I shall now ask the font of all knowledge.

I was close! A German-speaking country – Austria.

How would you react if there was irrefutable proof that God doesn’t exist? How about if there was irrefutable proof that God does exist?
Ooh, I don’t like either of those scenarios. It would change the world in horrible ways. And according to Hitchhiker’s Guide to the Galaxy, if the existence of God were proven, God would logically cease to exist!

People need something to believe and have faith in and many people choose God. If God’s existence were either proven or disproven (and everyone believed the proof), that’s the end of belief and faith in his existence.

That would set the cat among the pigeons and no mistake.

What is the scariest non-banned item you could take on to a plane?
I’m not entirely sure what’s banned these days, but the scariest item I’ve seen someone else take on a plane was one of those sticks to hold your hair up. It looked very sharp. How is that not considered a lethal weapon?

    I wasn’t aware anything pointed was allowed on a plane these days. I didn’t know what wasn’t allowed and lost a new super-sized tube of toothpaste once. What a waste. 😦 —- Suzanne

      Toothpaste – that really is harsh!

    Your circus popcorn must have has some kind of topping on it (And at a circus, I wouldn’t want to know what that was), because plain untopped popcorn is the most tasteless and bland food there is.

      It was over 40 years ago, so I can’t remember. I only remember the hideous aftermath…

    Excellent answer for the plane question. I couldn’t think of a thing!

    Remember how hat pins were used as murder weapons in old black & white movies?

      Yes. And stiletto heels are pretty dangerous too!

    Maybe the hair accessory wearer was one of those people who is NEVER annoyed by the TSA. They blithely glide through security regardless of the ‘fact’ that they may look like they eat small children for breakfast or have a variety of disease, possibly communicable. OR they’re related to somebody with “power”. That answer was indeed puzzling. Me? I get stopped EVERY TIME and searched. And I think I look like someone’s dear old grandmum… (heh). Thanks for Sharing Your World!! The God question answer was stupendous. More should rely on life according to the “Guide”, hmmm?

      It was at Cork airport (Republic of Ireland) to be fair. I’ve never dealt with the TSA but I’ve heard stories…
      You can’t go wrong if you follow the Guide!
