Tossing Salt Presents:
Avengers: Endgame, Political Correctness & More
May 1, 2019
Derrick sent me some questions. Well, two of them anyways and the others come from Facebook. And the answers, that’s all me, baby! Let’s do this…
What was the biggest surprise about Avengers: Endgame?
Watching Superman fly in and use his super breath to freeze the ocean around the Titanic and keep it from sinking. Oh wait, wrong movie. I’m not doing any spoilers here because there are a few people (I spoke to one yesterday – a tall, sexy rock star of a dude) that haven’t seen the movie yet. But to still answer the question, the way everything from Day 1 pretty much came full circle and how satisfying the movie was to watch. It was and is a damn good movie and if you haven’t seen it yet, do so before Thanos snaps on you… literally.
Is political correctness a good thing or a bad thing?
While there are times that it’s a necessary thing, I think that it seems to have become more bad than good over the past few years. Say what you really mean and think and if it hurt’s some feelings, so what? Life can be a biatch at times and feelings are going to be hurt sometimes. I’d much rather just be blunt and say what needs to be said than to have to tiptoe and walk on eggs because Little Johnny has a fragile ego and can’t handle the truth. Suck it up, kiddo! When used properly, it’s not necessarily bad, but when it gets in the way of honesty and reality, it’s time to step back a bit and give it a rest.
If you had to give up one of your fives senses, which one would you give up?
Smell. I know people that can’t smell and it doesn’t really seem to affect them all that much. No sight or hearing or ability to touch or taste would be much harder to live with and deal with.
If money was no object and you could move / live anywhere you wanted, where would you live?
Right now, it’d be up north, closer to my buddy Brent and his crew so I could be a regular live part of SMF Cyberspace more often. And if not there, in an old county house in the middle of the woods between here and Wilmington. I want quiet and peace and good internet and I’m happy.
If you could be a character in any cartoon, what cartoon would you be a part of?
I’d want to hang out with Wendy and Marvin and Wonder Dog and be a “friend of the Super Friends”… Well, that or be on Family Guy. I could take over as Mayor of Quahog since the passing of legendary iconic Mayor Adam West from a few years ago. There is a void to be filled and if not Betty White or Hulk Hogan, then let Dougie be the Mayor. ‘Nuff said!
And there you go. My thanks for reading. Any comments, thoughts, questions, etc, just drop me a line and let me know. Until the next time, take care and have a great one. See you later.
