Sharing My World 19-08-2019

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

What would be your solution to the over-population of the earth? Earth has finite resources and humanity seems to be breeding themselves to extinction. Some countries have tried restricting the number of children a couple or a person can have, with little success. So what other viable options are there for reducing the number of people?
So many possibilities!

  • It’s self-limiting. Once we run out of resources/room, people will die off naturally until the maximum sustainable limit is reached.
  • Don’t worry, soon we’ll be living on the moon/Mars/in space stations/under-sea cities (delete as applicable).
  • Pop all the worst criminals in a huge compound “Escape From New York” style and let them wipe each other out.
  • Some world leader or other’s going to chuck their toys out of the pram when they discover a country isn’t willing to sell a large part of itself to them on demand and so starts nuclear Armageddon.
  • Some world leader or other’s going to get confused, push the wrong button and accidentally start nuclear Armageddon.
  • Some world leader or other’s going to Tweet the wrong thing to the wrong country and accidentally start nuclear Armageddon.
  • Brexit will be the end of us all.

What’s invisible but you wish people could see?
My personal awesomeness aura.

What’s the most ridiculous fact you know?
I can’t think of any ridiculous facts right now.

What are the unwritten rules of where you work? If you don’t work (retired or unemployed) what are the unwritten rules you live your life by?
Be excellent to each other!


How do you feel about putting pineapple on pizza?
Just don’t.

Toilet paper, over or under?
Over, obviously. Fortunately I still have the image of the original patent.

Picture via cnet.com, but since it’s a patent I’m assuming it’s public domain

What’s the best type of cheese?
All the types!

    Ah, Bill and Ted. Those were some of my son’s favorite movies. They “were” funny. 😀 — Suzanne

    ALL THE CHEESE! Yes, I’m with you on that. And I will happily eat all the pizza that gets pineapple on it (as long as it also has ham on it) so that you are spared the horror. 🙂

      Yes, you enjoy your pineapple and I’ll have my chorizo and pepperoni (with multi-cheese) 🙂

        Mm, you know what would make chorizo and pepperoni taste even better? Pineapple! 🙂

          Maybe if I doused it in Tabasco sauce…

            Well, the whole point of the ham & pineapple is the contrast of sweet and fat/savory. So if all you want is something so spicy you can’t taste anything else, obviously you should leave all the pineapple to me.

    You can’t think of any ridiculous facts right now. And after I just taught you one a few days ago. Totally bogus, dude!

      I can’t be nicking other squirrels’ ridiculous facts…

    Toilet paper? Why were we still using the Daily Express when I were a lad?


    • August 25, 2019 at 4:37 pm

      According to the patent, they not only had toilet roll but almost toilet roll holders in 1891… get with the times 🙂

    Thanks for Sharing Your World! 🙂 Here’s a weird fact that you won’t be able to forget. Well I can’t since learning it. Ladybugs (aka ladybirds in some other countries) have poisonous knees. Yeah. I know. Who knew ladybugs HAD knees? A weird fact to sustain you. And it’s entirely possible that ES was referring to that in his comment to you. It might be ‘his’ fact. I may have ‘stolen’ it. Mea culpa. 😐 😛


    • August 26, 2019 at 3:47 pm

      I did read that one somewhere. Probably from ES. I’ve gone right off ladybirds, anyway 🙂

    I’m glad I’m too old to see that final button pushed!


    • August 26, 2019 at 3:48 pm

      I was just saying to my dad yesterday that I’m glad I’ll be dead before all these awful predictions come true. Like everyone having to become vegetarian. Can you imagine?

    I can sense your awesomeness aura all the way across the pond, dude! 🙂


    • August 26, 2019 at 3:49 pm

      Yay! I’ve been practising my range 🙂

    As Dwight said, “We need a new plague.”


  9. August 25, 2019 at 9:57 pm

    Excellent answers! I can see your personal awesomeness aura! Over is definitely the correct way. 😀

      I don’t understand these “under” persons. Who wants to keep bashing their hand into the wall?

    See now if you ruled the world …. ah … maybe not.
    You’ll just have to go down with the rest of us. Sorry.
