Tossing Salt Presents:
Pain, Politics, Death Row & More
November 2, 2021
I like to answer random questions. No secrets here. And right now, I’m going to do exactly that, five of them to be exact. These come from Reddit. The answers are from me. And men are from Jupiter while women are from Mars. Let’s do this.
What’s one candy you dislike, and why?
For some reason, I’ve never been a big fan of the Nerds. They just have that Fruity Pebbles feel to them that they’re too small, too fruity, too weird, and less than filling while not very good. I’ve had them sprinkled on ice cream before and that wasn’t too bad, but a Nerd guy, I am not. Well, if you’re talking about this group of Nerds, I’m a big fan. But the candy, not so much.
On what do you base your political beliefs?
I base my political beliefs on the way I was raised, what I’ve witnessed in life first hand, what I observe going on around me, and what the consequences of things will be in the big picture. I read, listen, research, and trust my guts, and use all of that to determine if a person or policy is deserving of my support. It’s not a personal thing, but an informed process of paying attention and learning. Too bad so many others are just one-issue morons and don’t do any of that.
Which actor seems to only play themselves?
Jack Nicholson. He’s pretty much played the same role or character in every movie and appearance over the past forty years and from what I’ve read and noted, that character of the rebellious, don’t give a damn, crazy man, isn’t too far away from the real deal, the real Jack. And I will forever be a fan of his because Mr. Nicholson is damn cool. ‘Nuff said!
If you were on death row, what would you request for your last meal?
Probably either KFC or a plate fixed from the buffet of a good Chinese restaurant. I’m but a simple man with simple tastes, even to the end.
What more painful? Physical pain or mental pain?
Mental pain. Physical pain can be treated with pills or therapy and usually gets less or goes away at some point, but mental pain and anguish aren’t treated quite so easily. It’s a bitter battle of loneliness, anxiety, and despair with no help available or end in sight. A broken bone can be gotten over rather easily, but a broken heart or broken spirit, it’s not quite as easy and sometimes, those are the pains that never end nor ever truly go away.
And there you go. My thanks for reading. Comments, thoughts, and any questions you may have about these answers or anything at all feel free and give me a shout. Until the next time, take care and stay safe. I’ll see you when I see you. Be good.
