A few questions

If we attained true global peace, would we stop saluting flags?
If we knew the world would never end, would we still recycle plastic bags?

If we all were telepaths, would that take away love’s passion?
If we were by love at last fulfilled, would there still be any jobs in fashion?

If we could beam ourselves at will, would we love fast cars anyway?
If we knew that we could live forever, would we still cherish every day?

    Rethorical questions? Hm, maybe not.

    1) No, it’d be interesting to see this phrased the other way around though 😉
    2) Even more so.
    3) Good question, next. Actually, I think that depends a lot on what being a telepath really means 😉
    4) Haha, probably not. No jobs in anything that requires passion either. We’d probably also die rather quickly.
    5) Of course. Heck, we love them even though we can’t drive them at full potential already.
    6) Still? Do we at the moment? (I know we should, but that’s another topic).

    See, that’s what you get for asking questions… stupid answers 😉

    I like your answers!! :-)

    In regard to the “earth/plastic” question, I like the way George Carlin put it:

    “The earth doesn’t share our prejudice towards plastic. Plastic came out of the earth. The earth probably sees plastic as just another one of its children. Could be the only reason the earth allowed us to be spawned from it in the first place. It wanted plastic for itself. Didn’t know how to make it. Needed us. Could be the answer to our age-old egocentric philosophical question, “Why are we here?” Plastic…asshole. So, the plastic is here, our job is done, we can be phased out now.”

    1. I hope so. I think that’s weird. I used to think it was graceful how people wai as they passed temples until my daughter explained that at school they hit you if you walk past the little spirit house/temple thing without pressing your palms together and bowing. So that’s why she does it.
    2. I don’t know
    3. no. yes, maybe more!
    4. maybe
    5.
