Random Questions Of The Soul & Heart

As my regular readers know, I love to do Q&A’s and surveys. I have nothing to hide and feel that honesty is the best policy, most of the time anyhow, so if there’s a question to be answered, what the hell. I’ll do it. I was getting questions from a very cool dude on Twitter named Casper, but Twitter, being the anti-free speech dictators that they are, deleted this man and his account. Way too much truth and pro-Trump stuff. And just like that, my main source for cool and unique questions was gone. So my regular piece, “Questions By Casper” is now history. What is a man to do? Well, I’ve discovered Reddit. They ask a lot of questions. I think they generally suck and I know my bro-son thinks so as well, but I need questions so for now, here we go. Fifteen questions from the Reddit site. And the answers are from me. Are you ready? Let’s do this.

How is the human asshole still hairy when other animals with fur got those bare asses?

I don’t know nor do I care, but I like a little fuzz on the ass. A bare baby-ass just doesn’t seem right to me. I guess it’s a matter of taste, but I like to see that happy trail.

What’s a scientific fact that creeps you out?

How about that urine is sterile? That’s kind of freaky.

What was your “WTF, how do people not know this? moment?

Every time I watch the news or anything political, I do a whole lot of “What the fucks” at the stupidity of people. People actually believe that politicians like Pelosi, Schumer, Biden, etc, are honest and when blatant lies are exposed, they justify or make excuses rather than believe their eyes, ears, or common sense. There are two genders. Boys have a penis. Girls do not have a penis. And yet people try to say that gender is a choice or a decision. This world has gone freakin’ insane.

What’s something that’s normal because of social media that would have been ridiculous 15 years ago?

How about posting pictures of your dinner and food and sharing with the world what you’re having for your meal. Everyone has done this at some point, myself included, and it’s just plain weird. No one cares.

What’s the single best piece of advice anyone gave you?

Stone Cold Steve Austin once said, “Don’t trust anyone!”. He was right.

If God had a suggestion box, what would you write and put in there for him to read?

I’d probably be a little selfish and ask him to take care of a few certain people who mean a lot to me and are going through some hard times and major struggles. I ask him that regularly with prayer, that my family, both those of blood and those of life/fate, catch a break, but a direct line and suggestion box, I’d do that too.

What’s better? A change in perspective or a change in circumstances?

A change in perspective because it would allow you to look at the circumstances in a different manner and take a different approach, maybe resulting in a different result.

What’s the weirdest thing a drunk person said to you?

He told me that I have the cleanest ears he’s ever seen. True story.

What saying do you hate and why?

Of course, there is the always funny line people feel obligated to say when they enter a place of business. “Working hard or hardly working?”. It wasn’t funny the first 2500 times and it’s not funny now. I dislike it when someone replies to a statement with, “I know that’s right!”. That’s just annoying. And the greeting “Let me hold something!”, a term that is very popular around here and the people sound and look like idiots every time they say it, is also one that I have a strong disdain for .

In the most fucked up way possible, what do you do for a living?

I take money from people in exchange for providing them with a toxic fluid that is very addicting, causes physical damage to their bodies, and has few redeeming qualities.

What are your thoughts on a CA Bill Would Ban Boy/Girl Clothes & Toy Sections in Department Stores?

I think this bill is idiotic, moronic, deranged, and totally fucked up and anyone who sees the need for such a bill or thinks it’s a good idea needs to be repeatedly smacked across the head with a heavy, blunt object.

What’s your most toxic trait that you can admit to?

For myself, it’s my distrust of most people and my habit of pushing people away if they start to get too close. I do actually like people, but if they seem good, I automatically suspect an ulterior motive for their actions and start to push them away or avoid them. Yes, I have issues. I admit it.

In your opinion, which movie has the best soundtrack?

The first albums that come to mind for this question are the soundtracks for “The Lost Boys”, “Rent”, “Jesus Christ Superstar”, and “Interview With a Vampire”, all of which I listen to on a regular basis.

Why are you single?

Most of it has to do with that toxic trait I mentioned earlier. If someone seems good to me or tries to get close, I push them away or refuse to let them in. That’s not very conducive to a good relationship. And then factor in that I have issues with a controlling parent figure who is incapable of accepting me being with someone and attempts to sabotage any relationship I do try to have, be it romantic, a friendship, or anything else, and that complicates matters as well.

What keeps you going, even when you are at your worst?

A couple of things actually. One is my sense of responsibility. It can be my worst enemy sometimes because I’m ready to give up, but I have made promises to someone or have a responsibility to do something and I put that first, over my own needs or desires or wishes. It’s how I am and what I do, as much as I often regret otherwise. And the other is there are a few people that mean the world to me, that have managed to pierce the barriers I’ve erected around myself, and I don’t want to hurt them or let them down. Again, I allow others to take precedent over my own needs or desires, but when I call someone my family, it’s a title and choice I take very seriously and making sure that they’re looked after and okay is something I feel responsible for and I can’t be there for them if I’m not here and have given up on myself, right? I’ve wanted to give up so many times, especially as of late, but that’s not a choice I’m allowed due to the responsibilities I’ve chosen to accept and the need to be there for those I love. And there you go.

And I guess that’s all for now. This has been therapeutic for me I hope you enjoyed reading my answers to these questions as well. Comments, thoughts, and any questions are welcome. I hope that you have a great day. Stay safe and take care and I’ll see you on the flip side.
