for Three Things Challenge

four questions answered

Pancakes, waffles or French Toast as your breakfast favorite? 

Perhaps because of my OCD, I will squeeze a blueberry into a roughly square shape and fit it into one of the little square holes on a waffle; then repeat for the next hole, etc. You cannot do this with a pancake or French Toast.

Do you think a person’s name influences the person they become?

I checked ten persons who changed their names and they all became famous movie stars.

Would things get better or worse if humans focused on what was going well rather than what’s going wrong?

I would hate to get this answer wrong, as I have been doing well up to this point.

Is math(s) something that humans created or something we discovered? Is looking at reality mathematically an accurate representation of how things work?

I didn’t create math. It was foisted upon me. If I don’t do it accurately I get a rap across the knuckles. That’s how things work.

for What Do You See


i am going to sit here and try to make up a joke in the next few minutes:

man walks into a bar and sees that the bartender is a horse.
“how do you manage to mix drinks with those hooves?” the man says.
“i use a blender,” the horse says.

(thank you. i’m here all week.)
