Paul’s Daily Half-Dozen for August 21, 2018

What is the most offensive color?  Which shade of it is the worst?

Which century, period, or age of human history would you live in, if you could live in any?

Being incredibly honest (please) do you consider yourself above average, average, or below average in kindness?

Should animals have more legal rights than they currently do such that those rights could be represented in a court of law? If so, what are some of the rights they should have?

If you were to smoke, would you smoke cigarettes, cigars, or a pipe?

Do you have a good looking smile or grin?

  1. I have been puzzling over how it is possible for one person (assuming you are that) to write so many posts in a day. The only conclusion I can come to with any sort of sense is that you never, ever, ever sleep.

    What is the most offensive color? Which shade of it is the worst?
    mushy, ooey, gooey, yellowy/greeny/brownish

    Which century, period, or age of human history would you live in, if you could live in any?
    Atlantis – before its corruption and inevitable fall

    Being incredibly honest (please) do you consider yourself above average, average, or below average in kindness?
    Above average – I’m (was) a nurse

    Should animals have more legal rights than they currently do such that those rights could be represented in a court of law? If so, what are some of the rights they should have?

    If you were to smoke, would you smoke cigarettes, cigars, or a pipe?
    I have been known to imbibe in all three many decades ago. Love the smell of pipe tobacco

    Do you have a good looking smile or grin?
    The.Best.Ever.

    1. You’re pretty close to the truth about my sleeping, Riali. I have a disorder that usually prevents me for sleeping longer than about two hours at a time. So I take naps whenever I’m tired, then stay awake typically for two to four hours before the next nap.

      1. Really? That would make life challenging at times I imagine. I do remember reading somewhere that sleep cycles seem to be changing to a four on four off pattern. Which is Ok if you don’t work. I find myself in that mode sometimes. As for the full moon – well! She keeps me awake…

  2. What is the most offensive color? Which shade of it is the worst? I don’t know much about color but I am pleased to agree with Soul Gifts, the color expert. Sort of a mucky yellow-brown. Like a baby’s curry poop.

    Which century, period, or age of human history would you live in, if you could live in any? I prefer now, but if I can’t have now, then… is Star Trek going to happen? Because if Star Trek happens and everybody learns to get along, then I’ll take that future.

    Being incredibly honest (please) do you consider yourself above average, average, or below average in kindness? aaauuugghhh I don’t know!! Average I guess? Maybe a trifle kinder than most if you only count intentions. A bit less kind than most if you count actions.

    Should animals have more legal rights than they currently do such that those rights could be represented in a court of law? If so, what are some of the rights they should have? Hm. We really need to be nicer to animals. My opinion is that humans should trump animals in rights though.

    If you were to smoke, would you smoke cigarettes, cigars, or a pipe? PIPE all the way, that smell! Though it would be hilarious and Groucho-y to have a cigar in my teeth all the time

    Do you have a good looking smile or grin? It used to be crooked but since I’ve opened up my smile has become a lot fuller and nicer. So yes

  3. COLOR: Hot pink. I hate hot pink.

    CENTURY: This one. I am too used to my creature comforts and social advancement to seriously consider moving anywhere else. If the above is invalid, I might roll back to California in the 13th-14th centuries, seems like a relatively peaceful period usually and the forager way of life appeals to me. Foragers with a large population create a nice balance between the pros and cons thereof.

    ABOVE AVERAGE: I am no Mommy Teresa, but I am kinder than most people I seem to meet.

    ANIMALS: I would like to live in a world where rights of animals resembled those of any other dependent person more or less. I think we would all live better, animal and human alike, if we stopped trying to create rules to allow exploitation of any particular class. I also think major wild herds and critical ecosystemic systems should have some manner of collective personal rights as precedented by the Whanganui case in NZ.

    SMOKING: I have tried and dislike all three! I guess a pipe, for the aesthetics?

    SMILE: No, it is completely goofy looking.

  4. i don’t like pastels…but hot pink would have to be the most offensive color.

    i like the roaring 20s. that seems like a good time.

    i don’t think i’m that kind…but then i look at the things i do vs. what my narration is…& i realize–fuck me–i am really really nice.

    that’s tricky. but…yes? at least as far as a humane life & a right to habitat.

    cigars…backwoods smokes…look at me, i’m clint eastwood, y’all.

    i was once told, “i would walk a million miles for one of your smiles.”
