Fandango’s Provocative Question # 8


Fandango has another of those wonderful provocative questions this week.

When was the last time you did something for the very first time? What was it that you did?

Hmmm, this is pondersome. I really don’t want to go back to the 50’s when I started walking or even the 70’s when I became a mother, although those were both definitely “firsts.” Every time I think “oh yeah there was the very first time I …” right on the heels of the thought comes the “oh wait, I did something like that before.” So just for the sake of argument and my sanity, I’m going to just go with this.

Fandango’s Provocative Question # 7

Fandango has come up with another thought provoking question this week. We’ve been talking about this subject all week at our dinner table and it’s been loads of f.u.n. (fantastic, unusual, nice).

Do you believe that social media sites should be able to censor what people post on their sites and ban content creators from posting? Or do you consider such actions to be a violation of freedom of speech, which is guaranteed as a right in the First Amendment of the U.S. Constitution?

Yes and No. Done. What you wanted like reasons? Oh bother, now what? Continue reading “Fandango’s Provocative Question # 7”

Fandango’s Provocative Question # 6


Fandango asks another great provocative question this week.

Is technological advancement a net positive or a net negative?”

*insert big shrug here* — dunno. Depends on your perception I suppose. Part of me (the nostalgic really old part) wants to say something sage like “things were so much slower and less stressful before all this technology came out.” But honestly, I’m not sure it’s all that true.

Fandango’s Provocative Question # 5


Many thanks to Fandango for this awesomely introspective prompt. I have been thinking about it for several days now.

Is there a ‘blogging-you’ who is different from the real-world you? If so, how are the two ‘yous’ different? How has the ‘blogging-you’ evolved since you first started blogging?”

Hmmm, nope.

FPQ # 3 – Morality – Objective or Subjective?


In response to Fandango’s Provocative Question # 3

Is morality objective or is it subjective? If you believe it’s objective, what is its source? If you believe it’s subjective, how do you know whose concept of morality is correct?”

OK, wow. I mean WOW. Now THAT’s provocative.

Easy answer: subjective and dunno. Continue reading “FPQ # 3 – Morality – Objective or Subjective?”

FPQ # 2 – Thoughts from a Wisea**


Here we go with round two of Fandango’s Provocative Questions. These are kind of fun, make me think. Oh wait did I just use “fun” and “think” in the same sentence? lol

What do you think is more useful: intelligence or wisdom, and why do you feel that way?”

Oooooh, this is a good one. An issue of which I have deep personal knowledge. For you see, grasshopper, I am both intelligent and wise and IMHO, wisdom trumps intelligence every time.  

Wow, that sounded a wee bit arrogant even to me. Let me explain.
