Sharing My World 22-02-2021

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

Have you ever ‘butt dialled” someone?
Not that I recall. That’s more likely if your phone is in your back pocket I think and mine never is. It’s not really possible with smartphones anyway as they’re locked pending face/fingerprint/PIN.

Maybe that’s why they added security to mobiles – not to keep your info safe, but to prevent the global butt dialling scourge.

If you were given 1000 acres of land, what would you do with it?
That depends where it is. If it’s in a city it’ll be worth a fortune so I’d sell it. If it’s in beautiful countryside maybe I’d see if I could sell enough to be able to build a lovely house for myself while retaining plenty of space around me. If it’s on the moon or Mars, well… it could be worth a bit in a few decades!

What’s the funniest thing you’ve seen on-line recently?
Nothing I can think of. I don’t really search around the internet for funnies. I spend enough time on a computer at work.

Have you ever eaten something off the floor?
Yep. And from the container you throw what you don’t want into at a communal canteen – who chucks away their sausages? And from a bin at work – seriously, why buy a bacon butty if you’re going to throw the bacon in the bin? I should note here that the bacon fell on a cardboard box in the bin, so it looked pretty safe to me 😉

I got some looks in the canteen and at work. Apparently this isn’t the “thing to do”.

Waste not, want not 🙂

    I’d bet that getting dirty and germy is the least of the health concerns when it comes to eating bacon…

      Probably. It’s not exactly “straight from the pig”.

    Yup…location location location.

    Thanks, Alistair for Sharing Your World! I might dive for a morsel off the floor (if Ziggy doesn’t get there first and the morsel is dropped on my tile floor and not the carpet) but I admit I’ve never heard of ‘dumpster diving’ (well I HAVE, but the person involved was po’ and there were wrapped hamburgers thrown away because they had been under the heat lamp a bit too long). I don’t think I could do that. I applaud your fortitude. And bacon? That is too tempting…. maybe I’d do it for bacon, if the bacon were on cardboard. One must have a very thick skin to ignore the stares though….

      It had literally just been thrown away right in front of my face, too. Somehow the whole company knew about it in seconds. Tasty, though!

    Why would I search the internet for funnies when I can get your blog posts directly to my mailbox? I hope floor/bin bacon is not a new trend. 😀

      I like that – “bin bacon”. That could definitely become a thing 🙂

    Before the pandemic, I heard if you dropped something like a steak on the floor, within a certain short length of time you could pick it up and eat it with no harm done. I was never quite sure of that, and now after the pandemic has been in force I don’t think I’d do that. Of course, some like to live dangerously. —- Suzanne

      While it’s true that the longer something is on the floor the worse it gets, it does get contaminated straight away. So probably never completely safe 🙂

    Eating from the bin is the only responsible thing to do in these days of climate change and biodiversity breakdown. Keep up the fight for the future! In which, in any case, it could be good with some land on Mars. How does the property rights thing work over there, anyway? Is it up for grabs?


    • March 3, 2021 at 5:58 am

      Yeah, I’m doing my bit! I reckon Mars is open for business – nip up there now and plant your flag!

    haha love your honest answers!!

      I ate from a bin. I’m not ashamed. It was damn good bacon 🙂
