The 3/4 mile: re-tackling questions #051-075 (and more)

I’ve had a lot of questions the past few months: some serious, some nutty, some adopted, and plenty that were my own.

I figured I’d put a table of the past 25 up to this point (with links to prior quarter-lists for the curious):

#001-025–“my 1st 25”, and #026-050–“half-mile”

So, without further ado:

#051–Pandora’s Box is Open: Do our leaders really think they can de-nuclearize North Korea?

#052–How do you deal with “preaching” strangers in public when you’re not religious?

#053–Does God Prefer Cash, Check, or Credit Card?: or, why the prosperity gospel bugs the hell out of me.

#054–Why do guests whose political views differ from their hosts on cable “news” shows even bother to show up?

#055–Why do we teach kids to say “I’m sorry,” even if they don’t mean it, and that it makes everything okay?

#056–Can you think of a better way to end the film The Great Dictator?

#057–What’s happened to the value of life in America?

#058–In the eyes of the law, what does “insanity” mean? And where does that fit in with “mental issues” and gun violence?

#059–How do you develop the credentials needed to be considered freelance-writer material?

#060–What do we expect from American teenagers today?

#061–How do you keep parents from trying to pay off your debts for you?

#062–How do you talk to someone in your family when you have nothing to say?

#063–In police pursuits, why do suspects still bother trying to escape when the helicopters join in?

#064–Blitz Q: Who would you least like to meet: the Xenomorph or the Predator?

#065–How much crap are service people supposed to take from customers?

#066–Blitz Q: Is “Yankees hate” a running gag in Hollywood and pop culture, or a real thing?

#067–How do you do Mother’s Day when you can’t bring yourself to speak to your mother?

#068–Blitz Q: Why do people tell every woman “happy mother’s day” even if they may not have kids?

#069–Why is it every time I take actual steps to make positive changes in my life, I suddenly get sick?

#070–What makes poetry…well, poetry?

#071–What’s with that whole “can’t say Macbeth in the theater” curse-thing?

#072–Adopted Q: What stops you from doing what you want to do?

#073–What would Mister Rogers say (or do) if he were here today?

#074–How do you get over the fear of losing your job?

#075–Why are job search websites so NOT helpful… or is it the employers posting the jobs that make them seem that way?

I never stop wondering and asking questions, so there will definitely be more coming (probably well past the hundred mark, because I just keep adding more–hee hee).

    RE: #053 – There’s an old joke:

    There’s a priest, a minister, and a rabbi. They’re out playing golf, and they’re trying to decide how much to give to charity. So the priest says, “We’ll draw a circle on the ground, we’ll throw the money way up in the air, and whatever lands inside the circle, we give to charity.” The minster says no. “We’ll draw a circle on the ground, throw the money way up in the air, and whatever lands outside of the circle, that’s what we’ll give to charity.” The rabbi says “No, no, no. We’ll throw the money way up in the air, and whatever God wants, he keeps!”
