Share Your World ~ 2/22/22

Today we should all play the lottery!!! Almost as good as hitting the numbers is Melanie’s #SYW. She sets up the questions and I give her my two cents worth 1/2 a penny.

  • What’s the most useful thing you know? Hmmm well useful to me is being able to read. I was once told if you can read you can do anything!! Well not exactly true, I could never play center in the NBA. But you get the drift. Oh one more, I have a knack for bringing levity to tense situations. That’s been pretty useful over the years.
  • What impact do you think it would have on the world if bananas were illegal? There would be a shortage of potassium. And what kind of bread would we have baked during 2020 lockdowns? Zucchini is a fine substitute but bananas are also very yummy. And if I get serious for a minute, several someones would be out of work. The whole production thing. I have to ask is there some going on in the banana industry?
  • What social stigma does society need to just get over? Ah, there are sooooooooooooo many. Almost too many to name. If I pick one that means the rest aren’t as worthy. So generally speaking, let’s all stay out of others people’s bidness. If it … whatever it may be doesn’t directly impact you, then move along … nothing to see here. That doesn’t mean we get a pass on being a community but ask first, don’t presume.
  • Do you prefer the moral viewpoint of consequentialism*, which focuses on the consequences of actions, or deontology,* which focuses on the innate rightness or wrongness of the actions themselves? Now this is a puzzler. I think consequentialism can sort of be like the end justify the means which I’ve never cared for but I’m also not sure. This is some weighty stuff. I don’t really believe in the innate rightness or wrongness of actions because humans mess that up. There goes deontology. Hey Melanie what’s behind door number three? Just kidding. I think perhaps a combo or all of the above. I’ve gotta love/hate relationship with philosophy.

Please feel free to share something good that happened to you in the past week.

Well not to beat a dead horse because ya know the horse is dead but I’m presenting a mission moment at our upcoming town hall. I have posted about this goodness twice already. Three is the charm or somebody stop me. This past Friday I had my virtual dry run. This week we’ve got another 15 minutes to fine tune. Then next Tuesday is dress rehearsal … ya really, we do that and then 3/2/22 is the BIG day.
