Share Your World — 8/30/2021

For this week’s Share Your World, Melanie is going deep. She wants to know…

Are human beings required to better themselves and will doing that make them happier?

“Required” to better themselves? What happens if they don’t comply? Is it noted on their permanent record? No, humans are not “required” to better themselves. Will it make them happier if they do? I guess that depends upon how motivated they are to better themselves.

Is it easier to love or to be loved?

That depends upon how much of a control freak you are. If you like to be in control, then it’s easier to love, since you’re in charge of your own feelings and emotions. As to being loved by someone else, that other person is in control over how they feel about you and all you can do is react to it.

Also, it depends on whether you’re the assertive type or the passive type. I think for the passive type, it’s easier to be loved, while for the assertive type, it’s easier to love.

Outside traumatic brain injury, can memories be completely erased?

I think that those suffering from dementia or from Alzheimer’s may have significant memory loss. Are those memories “completely erased” or are they just irretrievable? And is there really a difference? I don’t know.

Is there such a thing as a good death?

I’d say that dying peacefully and painlessly in your sleep would be a “good” death.

And one ‘silly’ one because the former questions were fairly serious: What do you imagine is inside a baseball?

Pick me! Pick me! I know!

      if you watch a game, you can hear that the ball isn’t hollow when someone hits it. It doesn’t bounce as much this year as last. They changed the cork.

        Oh, I know it isn’t really hollow, but as fast at those pitcher through it, I’d like to imagine it must be!

    Whether or not you, as a human, are required to better yourself depends upon where you live, how old you are, whether or not you have gotten yourself into trouble already, and probably more.

    I think you’ve got these correct and yes I also thought baseballs were hollow

      When I was a kid I used my father’s circular saw to slice a baseball in half because I wanted to know what was inside.

        How young of a kid? That could be scary to a parent.

          Maybe 11 or 12. He was there with me to supervise.

    Thanks Fandango for Sharing Your World. Way to ‘myth’ bust on the baseball! I expected nothing less though, I KNEW you’d have the facts about that! 😉 Cork, huh. I didn’t envision THAT at all, I thought it might be a hard rubber ball in the middle. And so I learned something today. Courtesy of our instructor, Fandango, who teaches us all. Very enjoyable answers, and concisely put too. Have a wonderful week!

    Good answers. I think we all wish for that “good death,” I know I do, but lets wait at least 20 years! Oh and thanks for the info on the baseball! ⚾
