5 Questions
August 17, 2018

There was a time that I called this “Facebook Q&A”, but the times, they are a’changing and rather than answer any and every questions, I’m going to pick the best and most interesting of the best that I can find each and every week on my Facebook timeline. This is where you’ll get to know me a little bit better and I might even get to know myself a little better as well. Doesn’t all that sound so good? It’s mostly just gibberish, but it sounds great. I love to answer questions and I have no problems answering any question about anything, but sometimes, even I go a bit too far. This cuts down on the B.S. and less is more and all of that. Any question that you may have for me about anything, just ask and I’ll reply, maybe here or maybe even via a direct message, but I will reply. And this will be one way for me to do so. You fine folks get to know the man behind the scenes just a little better and I’ll get to know you a little better and when the smoke clears, we can all do lunch and be life-long friends.

Yeah, I guess that will be the standard intro for this piece for the time being. It’ll change eventually, but for now, time is short and so are midgets and so was Gary Coleman. It’s time to get all deep and philosophical today. Let’s do this…

1. If someone you loved was killed in front of you, but someone created a copy of them that was perfect right down to the atomic level, would they be the same person and would you love them just as much?

Would they be the same person? Technically, the answer would be no because even if the suplication is perfect, it’s still a duplicate. It’s a fine line to consider and I don’t think, in the end, it would matter too much because the relief and comfort of having them “back” would overshadow any doubts about the realness of the new copy and I doubt it would matter in the long run. And would I love them just as much? Probably more because having lost them once, I would appreciate what I have in front of me even more.

2. If you could become immortal on the condition you would NEVER be able to die or kill yourself, would you choose immortality?

No. To watch those you love die around you and to be a part of things, yet never truly a part because you know that things end and you never do, that would be a hell in itself. I wouldn’t want to do that.

3. If you had to guess, what do you think would be the most likely way you’ll die?

Alone at night laying in my bed or at the store, getting pissed at a customer and having a heart attack.

4. What will people say at your funeral?

Damn, he’s dead! Where the beer at?

5. If you could go back in time, once, and change a single thing – what would it be?

So many things immediately come to mind, but truthfully, everything happens for a reason and all experiences, good and bad, were meant to be and are lessons in life. If I change this or that, who knows what else would change as a result of the ripple effect? I don’t change what was, but instead choose to learn from it (or not when it comes it my social life obviously… lol). Many things could change and my life would have been easier or better, but then I wouldn’t be me and who I am today. Not a good thing most likely. Don’t screw with time or fate.

And there you go. Questions, comments or anything else, just get at me and let me know. I’m down and gone for now. Have to go get ready for work. Until the next time, stay safe and take care. I loves ya!
