Tossing Salt Presents:
Questions By Casper #58
November 26, 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…
Why do they add coloring to mouth wash?
Color adds appeal and makes a person less likely to mix the Scope up with a cup of gin or vodka. And the color also helps represent the flavor so a person doesn’t have to think quite as much to know what he’s drinking.
Have you ever been in a vehicle accident?
A couple of them, but never seriously hurt though. And it wasn’t my fault.
Do you think there really is such a thing as an original idea?
It may be new and original for the person thinking it at the moment, but someone has thought it before and someone will think it in the future.
Do you ever wonder if every question that will ever be asked, had already been asked?
No, I never wonder about it.
Do you change the time in your vehicle for daylight savings?
Why would I do that? Then I’d have to change it again in six months. It would get monotonous after a while. I’ll just leave it be.
Do you know how to set the clock in your vehicle?
I do know how. I just don’t care to do it all that often.
What search engine do you use?
Google or Bing usually.
Do you always speak your mind?
I pick and choose my spots carefully unless I’m pissed off. And then all bets are off.
How long could you survive in the woods alone and without electronic devices?
I’m not a total idiot and grew up in North Carolina (a country boy can survive) soI could last for a while.
Who is your all-time favorite racecar driver?
Richard Petty will always be the King.
Who is your all-time favorite hockey player?
Who is your all-time favorite baseball player?
Pete Rose (and he belongs in the MLB Hall of Fame!)
Who is your all-time favorite basketball player?
Michael Jordon of course. UNC#1.
Who is your all-time favorite football player?
I’m not a big football guy and even less so since the whole kneeling crap started. But I like OJ Simpson. He really knew how to cut through the opposition and run like hell, almost like he murdered someone or something. Plus, he was funny in the Naked Gun movies.
Do you ever crack your neck?
Not intentionally, but it does happen.
Have you ever had a root canal?
What is that? When you stand in a ditch and say my name is Kunta Kinte? (Your name’s Toby, boy!) No, I have not done that. Well, maybe once when I was drunk.
Have you ever had lice?
No, but I have had rice. It was brown and healthy. Added it to beef stew and it was good.
Did you ever go to Sunday school?
No, I didn’t.
If you were a piece of furniture, what kind would you be?
Probably a lamp. I could really light up some lives that way.
What is your favorite Christmas song?
I have two favorites at the moment. These two.
What is your favorite comic strip?
Calvin & Hobbes.
What is your favorite type of candy?
And there you go. My thanks to Casper for the questions and to you, the awesome ones, for reading. Any comments, thoughts, or questions give me a shout. And now, it’s (finally) time to eat. I’ll catch you on the flip side. Take care and stay safe. Have a great Thanksgiving and I’ll see you later.
