Questions By Casper #49
October 8, 2020
Over in the world of Twitter, I found a man that likes to ask questions. And I do mean a lot of them. His name is Tyler “The Ghost” Casper and he’s at @tyler_casper. A good guy that you should go check out. Now, as I was saying, he likes to ask questions. I like to answer them and it provides content for the site. So here we are. Every few days, I go down his feed and copy the inquiries he’s asked. And then it’s here for the answers. It’s insightful, thought-provoking, and hopefully entertaining for you, the reader, as well. So let’s can the chit chat and let’s do this. Are you ready? And away we go…
What is your favorite musical instrument to play?
I have no musical talent and can not play any kind of musical instrument. I enjoy sitting down and attempting to play the piano every so often, but I don’t think anyone else likes it very much.
Can you play any musical instruments?
No, I do not. I’m a writer, damn it. Not a musician.
Do you cook food in cast iron?
Every family should own a cast-iron skillet. We have one and I don’t use it often, but I do occasionally. It’s a great cooking tool.
What are the punishments for illegal immigration?
Free housing, free education, government aid and the right to vote in elections. At least that’s how it will be if Biden wins.
Are you Pro-Life?
Abortion is murder. An unborn child is still a child. So yes, I am.
If there was a song about your life, what would it’s title be?
“What the fuck!”
What are your feelings towards organized religion?
Most organized religions have lost their way and are corrupt. Religion is a great thing and I do believe, but I prefer to find my own way instead of having others twist the message to fit their agenda. That’s what organized religion tends to do.
Have you ever helped someone just because it was the right thing to do?
Because it’s the right thing to do and because they were cute/had a great ass. Either reason could apply.
Do you believe in miracles?
Every day we wake up, it’s a miracle.
How many times in the past week have you forgotten what you were going to say?
More times than I can’t remember.
Who do you think is the worst actor there had ever been?
Is Kathy Griffin an actor? No, she’s just a bitch. How about Tom Green? He sucks pretty badly.
Have you ever fallen asleep during church?
I don’t think so, but give me time. I probably will.
Do you know the difference between magma and lava?
Sort of, but not really. Considering how many volcanos I explore each year, I’m comfortable in my ignorance and don’t feel like looking it up right now.
Have you ever watch H.R. Puffinstuff?
Many times. It was a weird show, but who didn’t like Freddie the Flute, Witchie-Poo, and the rest of the crew?
Have you ever watched MASH?
Many times. I’ve probably seen every episode at least once.
What to you is a good smell (scent) that brings you good memories it happiness?
There’s a certain clean, but kind of musky smell that reminds me of my Grandma’s house in Ohio. It was odd, but strangely comforting at the same time.
Have you ever watched Tom Terrific?
No, I have not. Who is Tom Terrific?
Who is your hero from history?
I like President Lincoln of course, but who doesn’t? And he wasn’t a hero, but Springheel Jack has always fascinated me.
Have you ever had a retainer?
No, I have not.
Have you ever had braces?
No, I have not.
Do you know anyone with buck teeth?
I know a couple of people who have prominent front teeth. So that would be a yes.
Have you ever been in a play?
When I was a youth in elementary school, being a part of plays and concerts was pretty much required. I did it and enjoyed it. Now, with my issues about anxiety and crowds, I would be too chicken-shit to do it or try to play any kind of role… unless my bro-son requires it for a skit/video or my buddy Brent, makes a movie and needs a cameo by a grouchy, disheveled old man. I could (and would) do that.
And that’s all for me today. My thanks to Casper for the great questions and to you, my loyal readers, both of you, for reading. Any comments, thoughts, or questions, drop me a line. Have a great one and be safe. Watch out for the crazies. I’ll see you on the flip side.
Dedicated to the memory of Shane Haney. Rest in peace, my friend.
