Sharing My World 2019-10-21

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

Had any good conversations with yourself lately? Did you listen to yourself? And how’d that work out for you?
I always have conversations with myself. And I always listen. If I’m not going to listen to myself (for better or worse), who am I going to listen to?

What is gravity and how does it work?
Gravity is a big sucking thing. At the centre of the Earth there’s a huge gravity wave generator, or “vacuum cleaner” to the layman, which constantly spins round and round sucking stuff down. We can only hope the bag never gets full or everyone will float off into space!

What is more real – Mind or Matter?
Is either real? Is this just a dream? Are you all figments of my imagination, or am I a figment of yours?

Dum dum dummmmm.

Should a vegetarian (or vegan) eat animal crackers?
I know this is a fun question, and just for fun I looked up the ingredients of “original” animal crackers. And I found this rather terrifying statement:

“Are animal crackers vegan? While Nabisco’s recipe is free of animal ingredients, Cole & Stewart’s sociological analysis would suggest that consuming animal crackers is ritualistically anti-vegan, as it socializes speciesist sentiments and human supremacy in children.”

Bloody hell. They’re only biscuits. I didn’t realise they were turning the world’s children into supremacist monsters.

What other popular foodstuffs are corrupting the minds of our children? Let me know in the comments!

Name (describe) something you wouldn’t want to run into in a dark and deserted wood or alley.
You’ve been avoiding him for months. Avoiding all the usual places. Then one day you forget. You get careless. You take a shortcut home. In a flash of lightning you see him. Darkness returns. Was he really there? Did you imagine him? Lightning flares again. He’s closer.

Much closer.

He opens his mouth, salivating in anticipation. He speaks.

“You thought you could avoid me? None can avoid me.”

He is the End. The Omega. The nightmare become real.

He is the Tax Collector.

    You do realise that there is nobody out here. We are all figments of your imagination and, by the way, that bag is full, very, very full. In fact, there has never been a bag that is fuller than the full bag. Be afraid, be very afraid, and whatever you do, don’t touch the animal crackers!

    God knows I love animals. It’s painfully obvious from my blog. But if you can’t believe in human supremacy over the critters, you have issues that go beyond the ethics of animal crackers!

    I always talk to myself as there are rarely any arguments. The tax collector is the scariest!
    Now all the fruits and veg in the fridge are running for their lives after reading this post. 😀

      It’s far more fruitful talking to yourself than trying to explain yourself to the tax collector 🙂

    it makes me worry seriously about fig newtons. It’s mostly the newtons I worry about. it’s not a big town and if I eat them, maybe all my friends in Newton won’t live there and will drift into space having lost their connection to gravity.

      I’ve always wondered what exactly a fig newton is. I assume it’s some kind of biscuit but that’s as far as I ever got…

    As an almost-vegan (well, not really, but definitely almost-vegetarian) I’d say the animal crackers should go just fine. I’m a bit worried about dinosaur-pasta, though, as the dinosaurs are in critical danger of extinction. It might soon be too late.
