Rory is at it again with his latest set of fun questions. This time he’s turned somewhat philosophical on us. So let’s give it a go.
Why is there a “d” in “fridge” but not in “refrigerator”
Would you rather be or a wasp? [This is NOT a typo – I do not ask would you rather be a bee or a wasp, I ask if you would rather be or a wasp]
Um, I’d rather be me than a wasp. I’d also rather be a hammer than a nail, a sparrow than a snail, and a forest than a street.
Is the “S” or the “C” silent in the word “scent?
I think this question stinks.
Why is A first in the alphabet, why not Z, or P, or K? Who said A had to be first, on the other side of the coin who said 1 had to be first?
The person who started the alphabet was playing Wheel of Fortune and said to Pat Sajak, “Pat, I want to choose a vowel. I chose an A.” Since then, the A has come first. As to the number one, you can’t have two or three without first having one. Duh!
If I try to fail, but succeed, which one did I do?
I produced a Broadway musical called, “Springtime for Hitler.”
If Cinderella’s shoe fit so perfectly well when the Prince tried, why and how did the silly thing fall off in the first place?
Because she got cold feet, causing her feet to shrink.
Given no choice except to choose one option, would you kill 10 people to save just 1?
Depends who that one person is. If it’s me, damn right. That’s self-defense, dude.
How do we really know what is real?
Does it really matter?
Must we have evidence to know the truth?
If God is “good,” why is there so much evil in the world?
Because God is a myth.
What in your eyes is the most important purpose to life?
To live…and to let live.
Do you think computers will ever take over the world?
They already have.
Why is it called ‘falling in love” – do we really truly fall?
Figuratively speaking, yes, we fall. But once I fell head over heels in love — literally. Boy did that hurt.
Which historical figure, good or bad, do you think had the biggest impact on the world? Your country?
World: Hitler (bad).
My country: Trump (very bad)
Is there really such a thing as good luck or is it, just so?
Good luck coming up with an answer to that question.
What is the right age to become a parent, do you think age is a consideration that is important here in the decisions of becoming a parent?
The right age is the age at with someone gives birth and becomes a parent. I think age is just one consideration in a series of considerations regarding being a parent.
How much freedom should people be allowed to have?
The freedom to live their lives as they please as long as they are not doing harm to themselves or others.
Do you think governments have the right to dictate to their people concerning their health and lifestyle?
I think governments have an obligation to protect the health of their citizens and to protect their freedom to live whatever lifestyle they wish to lead, again, as long as that lifestyle doesn’t cause harm to themselves or others.
Do you think governments have the rights to dictate population control?
Governments should protect the reproductive rights of its citizens and not dictate to anyone what those rights should be.
Provide one good quote that in your eyes sums up philosophy?
Can you now provide a piece of music that achieves the same result?
