What really turns your stomach? (politicians aside)
Lana Turner’s sister, she was a real stomach turner. Lana’s sister was not much to look at, but she loved exercising and that is how she met Jane Fonda, who she introduced to Ted Turner. Lana was a head turner, and her brother got a job at IHOP where he became a pancake turner.
What would YOU do with the immense amount of ‘garbage’ in the world, if there weren’t dumps or barges (Sorry New York/New Jersey) where it was taken to be processed?
I have always wondered what would happen if we dumped plastic waste into a volcano and apparently, I am not the only one, as I found this video which discusses this.
We can’t send our garbage out into space, because that would be too expensive, so if we can recycle as much of it as possible and try to compost some of it, all we have left is trash compactors.
What’s the oddest container you’ve ever gotten a gift in?
I don’t know how to answer this, but I will go with a bicycle that had a ribbon on it.
Do people behave differently during Christmas (insert your own holiday or festive season)?
Do they try to be better?
Some do, but I don’t like to generalize.
Do you donate something (money, clothes…) to charities?
I have a bunch of clothes that I am no longer wearing, and I should make an effort to give them away.
Do you give something to homeless people?
I honestly don’t know any homeless people, but sometimes I see them begging with signs when I am stopped at traffic lights. I feel bad for them, but I usually won’t roll down my window to give them money, as they look perfectly healthy to me and I am sure that if they put as much effort into getting a job, as they put into begging, that they could make their own money. If feel that if I did give them money, that I would be enabling them to be lazier than they already are.
This is an allegedly joyful time of year. How do you, personally, FEEL?
I enjoy seeing the houses in my neighborhood decorated, but I have not caught the Christmas spirit yet.
