Sharing My World 20-05-2019

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

Is it better to suspect something (bad or hurtful) and not know or to have your worst fears confirmed by sure knowledge?
Definitely both. I’m perfectly happy to live in the knowledge that everything could be okay. But I would prefer to know for sure. Unless it’s negative in which case I’d rather not know. Except I would definitely rather know. Positive or negative. Not know, that’s the preference. I’d rather know. Or not.

What makes you laugh aloud? Crack up? Laugh until your sides split? When was the last time you had a great big belly laugh?
Some comedies like Parks and Recreation. Ultra-violent scenes in “just for fun” films like John Wick and Expendables. I particularly love that scene in Expendables where the baddies are all running and then one chap’s head explodes and then one of the goodies wanders past with his massive gun blazing.

Heh heh.

Do you suppose Noah had woodpeckers in the ark? If he did, where did he keep them? Apologies to the Darwinians in the crowd… this is merely for fun, okay?
It’s a little known fact that there were actually two arks. The first one was the one with the woodpeckers, beavers and the like. That one sank. The Ark Mark II was the one you see in all the illustrations. The beavers had to tread water until the flood waters dissipated and the woodpeckers took rests from flying by resting on their heads.

Why is “Charlie” short for “Charles when they are the same number of letters?
It’s an alternative name. It depends on the type of person it is. There are actually three flavours. Let’s investigate!

Charles:  “Oh I say, punting on the Cam? Jolly good show, don’t’cha know. Bring the Pimm’s, what-ho!”
Charlie: “Yes, what a wonderful idea, let’s go shopping and then we’ll visit the park. Bring a picnic!”
Chaz: “Nah, I can’t go daan da pub cuz da feds is got me, innit, and dey say, you is commin wiv us, you robbed da Post Office, and I is like, prove it coppuz, and dey is like, we has your DNA innit, an’ I is like, bollocks.”

    Enjoyed your humourous answers to these questionable prompts. 🙂
    My daughter was telling me there’s a supposedly accurate way to tell if a person’s going to develop Alzheimer’s, and I’m thinking, “Do I really want to find out? What if it confirms, as I already suspect, that I’m well on the way?”
    Some things are best left unknown. 😉

    Do you suppose Noah took termites into the Ark? And the grasshoppers he definitely could have left to drown, for my part.

    Have a great week, Ali.

      Aw, what’s wrong with grasshoppers? To be honest I just realised haven’t seen one for many years.

        They’ve almost been wiped out here on the prairies during our “seven wet years”, but we’re into a dry cycle again and will likely see them back in full force before long.

    I think the new TV show “Charles, Charlie and Chaz” would make most people hurt their sides laughing….

      Maybe I’ll tout it to Amazon’s “pilot” series. Think of all the hilarious misunderstandings!

    Two Arks? Well, I never did!
    OK, I may have, once. Maybe a couple of times.
    If there were only 2 of each, what did the lions eat? Or the vultures?
    I suspect you may have made some of this up, but don’t tell me, I don’t want to know. Really I don’t.
    I think!

      The lions ate mostly everything else and the vultures ate the bits that were left. Urgh.

    I think I would rather know. On the other hand…..
    I agree with evilsquirrel. The Charles/Charlie/Chaz show would be hilarious!

    Okay now we have the “Charles” sorted (what about Chuck? Does he feel left out?) , we can all rest a bit easier. Two arks actually explains a lot. I wondered how the carnivores and the herbivores ever existed side by side that way… Hmm 😐 Thanks awfully for Sharing Your World. It was veddy veddy enlightening old chap..!

      There’s a mural of the ark on a wall in a hall near here, and I always wonder why they’re not eating each other…
      I forgot about “Chuck” – it’s not a name that used over here.

    I feel the same way about knowing and not knowing. 🙂

    I like your variants on Chuck. You left out Chuck, now that I mention it. What happened to Chuckie? Doesn’t he get a turn?

      I forgot about Chuck too! My only experience of “Chuck” is the TV series, it’s not a name used in this country.

    I like the 2 arks idea. I’m just sorry mosquitoes weren’t on the one that sank.

      They just buzzed around over the ark, making life miserable for the survivors.

        I know, but they feed the birds and frogs. If only they’d leave us humans alone and keep to their real duty and be food.

    I can totally understand why the Ark with the beavers and woodpeckers sank. Hilarious, Ali. 😀 — Suzanne

      It’s a good job he didn’t pop them on an ark with any non-swimmers/flyers 🙂

    Laughing at JOHN WICK! I find that unfathomable… the scenes and his expertise at shooting are COMPLETELY believable! I have not seen WICK 3 yet, but I will in a day or two.

      That’s “laughing” as in “it’s hilarious to see him effortlessly carving his way through everything”.

        a non-believer?


        • June 2, 2019 at 6:40 am

          No, I think it’s probably the most realistic portrayal of a trained killer I’ve seen, and myself and everyone I know who have seen the films find them a great laugh.
