2614. When I go into a store, why doesn’t anyone know anything about what they are selling?
Because they’re often too young and don’t know shit. They don’t get training, aren’t motivated and just don’t care.

2631. There was a sculpture that was supposed to be displayed for a week in the Rockafeller Center in NYC of a falling woman – designed as a memorial to those who jumped or fell to their death from the World Trade Center. It was complained about as grotesque, innopropriate and describe as ‘not art’ What do you think? It was taken down early because it was seen as ‘offensive’. What do you think about that?
The artist, Fischl, said in a statement. “It was a sincere expression of deepest sympathy for the vulnerability of the human condition. Both specifically towards the victims of Sept. 11 and towards humanity in general.”
Are people just too sensative? Or maybe people are NOT sensative ENOUGH to the idea that others may have different views from them (or from the majority)? She these different, opposing or offensive views be allowed to be expressed freely and openly? Why or why not?
They should be allowed to be expressed freely and openly. But you can’t be suprised when discussion erupts. Some things also cross a line and in this case, the artist made something based on a commission, so they need to be more sensitive to the wishes of others than their own opinions etc.
2632. What letter’s sound do you like the best?
I don’t care.
2633. What is one movie charater you identify with and why?

For the biggest part, yes. But like I might dress way more sloppy and pick my nose 😉
2635. Why is everyone so obssessed with superheros?
Don’t know. Maybe because they like the action, the alternate world, the fantasy of them being a hero?

Aren’t they cliches because they are over-used?
2637. Do you handle inconvieniences well?

It was a very posh affair. they served roast woolly mamoth steaks, the rarest meat in all the world. So, if you were invited, would you have eaten it?
Hmm…. I bet it would be an outrage but seeing as the animal was already dead and cut up at that point I think I would.

When I’ll die, what I’ll get for christmas, and….. I don’t know :’)

2663. Because we don’t know when we will die, we get to think of life as an inexhaustible well. Yet everything happens a certain number of times, and a very small number, really. How many more times will you remember a certain afternoon of your childhood…some afternoon that’s so deeply a part of your being that you can’t conceive of your life without it? How many more times will you watch the full moon rise? How can you fully appreciate these moments, every moment, when it all seems limitless? ~Paul Bowles except from The Sheltering Sky
I don’t agree at all. We know there’s an end to everything, we know time isn’t limitless. So we tend not to sweat the smaller things in the long run. Why do I care about one childhood afternoon in the past if I can have more experiences before time runs out? I agree we need to cherish moments but we shouldn’t dwell on them too long because you might miss out on something else that’s great and wonderful.

Well some more money would be nice.
2672. Would you take a very casualy dropped ‘maybe I should just kill myself’ as a warning ssign?
2673. What does the word ‘ironic’ mean? Can you give an exaple of an ironic situation?
I feel like this is a question you would see on an English exam. But anyway irony would be bragging about you perfect dental health only to find out that afternoon you have a cavity.

The sun shining through my curtains.
2675. Have you ever been on the edge of the night?

We don’t have that character in our sesame street. And I don’t know. Not everything has to be educational or serve a social purpose. Sometimes things can just be entertainment and I think sesame street is one of those things that should be entertainment only.

2689. Are you a hologram or a misfit?
2690. How are you oriented sexually? Do you agree with the people who say that everyone is bi-sexual even if they don’t want to admit it?

2700. Would you like to read an entire novel written in stream of consiousness form?
Depends on the subject of the novel.
