Recently I started to watch a few documentaries on YouTube, there is some quality of a documentary I feel compelled to watch. Most I’ve seen were about half an hour the minimum and it took me to a lot of places in human society. The civil wars in the middle east and northern Africa, the hyper cyber culture of South Korea and Japan, the drug wars in South and Central America. It’s interesting the topics and views you would encounter that will pull you into viewing the entire doc.

The strangest thing I’ve noticed when I watch documentaries, the topics are very localized in those areas. The examination of depression and suicide is always in a developed country, gaming culture is in a western young adults basement or on the pro circuits in Korea, pollution topics in our lakes and polar caps. There are a lot of issues with the world, most of our own doing. The human condition is varied all around the world, what seems strange to us is a norm to them.

There are places in perpetual war and death and sadness is becoming an issue in developed countries because of anything and everything. It’s interesting how these short films deliver the truth but skirts around the phrase “at least we’re not like these people”. What it is like to live on this planet varies from region to region, changes from economic and political variabilities. You can be born poor and living in he worst place in this world to one day live in mediocrity, but it can be vice versa from rich to poor.

The human experience is crazy because everything you can do can change and everything will happen could change what your can do well after. As objective we can point things in a perspective, subjective we have our own perspectives.


Up in the grey space

Everyone with free time have stared into space and asks unworldly questions, fact! Most I can say is they start with “what if?” We made them, asked them, answered them. Crazy, logical or even an odd conversation; it is great to boost a conversation. Zombies, sex, murder scenarios, probably the major three I have asked or answers.

Here is some of them I want to pass around. For every question, read my answer and think of how you answer; or don’t and enjoy the post for the sake of entertainment.

Way before the apocalypse and zombies became mainstream, I was given the question how I would handle the apocalypse if it happened now. So if it happened now while I was on my bed, I would be unprepared. But I would have a first aid kit ready, then accessibility to equipments/weapons. Starting with more aid as in food and medical supplies. There’s a pharmacy (Shopper’s Drug Mart to be specific); as well as 2 supermarkets, a Wal-mart and plenty places to hide. However without a very well built weapon, a city of millions would defeat bullets. However I do own some old hockey sticks and knives from the kitchen. So I think I can fashion a few axes and spears. All I need is companions with cooking and technical skills, safety in numbers.

Relationship scenarios are interesting and usually result in a long debate especially varying different opinions. One being Hilary Duff or Lindsey Lohan. Unfortunately this was much after Lindsey taking in so much bad publicity, she seemed okay then all the drinky-drinky. If it wasn’t paired with Duff and asked before all the bad stuff, I would consider it. Though I have heard interviews and Hilary seems an interest person to chat up. Probably her, I envy a certain hockey player.

Recently, same guy same question with different celebrity names. “Would you rather have sex with Hayley Williams or Taylor Swift?” First, why sex? Why must it be sex first? I wouldn’t go around shacking up every beauty. They’re beautiful and attractive, but sex would likely be last on the list or somewhere on the bottom of the list. Back to question at hand, Hayley or Taylor? Sex aside, they are evenly well matched. Attractive, eloquent, seems interesting are all there. Hayley seems to have a bold vibe, not sure if it is her personality or clothes; I like both. Taylor, she’s seems like a gentle and sweet personality. Also Taylor and I have an odd similarity in a certain number. I see it every day and good things usually happen. Well good would be exaggerated, more like I would be better off than before and my luck stat is pretty low. Now the bad side to get into that, it is always good to think of the downside. Songwriters they are, likely going to get a bad song for every good song. Public life is great but if someone pulls you under the bus, kind of a unattractive feature but a good thing to know she’s thinking of you. Popularity would also be a great undoing since I would lose out personal time. Saving best for last, way out of my league. Have you seen my profile picture? Like to that itself, would you or not? Anyways I had to answer this mind boggle. Close race that I had to choose. If anything best case if I was in that scenario; best friends with Hayley and Taylor’s on top. Though I must remark, why did you make it sex related?

Same person got Heavy Rain once the hype simmered down. It gave the protagonists choices to cut his finger off and other mature actions. So he asks “would you cut your finger off or get kicked in the nads?” Nads, most definitely nads. Then the chain of question rolls in. “Kick in nads or wake up in jail?” Depends if I did something wrong; misunderstanding then jail, otherwise nads. “Wake up in jail or wake up in bed with a man sleeping next to you?” I am pro to sexuality. You can choose how you run your personal life, relationships and all. However I have a comfort zone when it comes to my sexuality so I chose jail. At least it was a misunderstanding and not a drunk decision.

Walking down a busy downtown street, another chain of questioning. “Would eat two bowls of noodle soup or eat a whole plate of fried chicken?” I ate many things and learned a few things. Fried fills you up quick and water can be expelled easy so soup is easy to do depending on size of the bowl. I use to eat a lot, now just on moderation. “Soup or random item on the menu?” That day, I had my eyes set on a nice warm bowl of beef noodle soup. “Soup or steak served by a hot waitress?” Both good, I flipped for it. for the waitress. I like a good steak, otherwise it isn’t worth walking in. Well this descended into a bit seedy line of questioning where it ended into choosing really odd things. Never again.

Grewsome and morbid, murder. I asked one “One bullet, who would you shoot?” This one was a hard decision that I tried to answer the question. Since I didn’t specify, I started bend the rules. Evil people, I mean people who push you around and get what they want for personal gain. That’s hard to accomplish, lots of evil people and only one round; going to go big quite literally. Unless I can beat people with the gun…huh.

Hope I have given you something random to think about it. Play this when you have friends or just to post some hypotheticals for kicks. Feel free to comment or even ask one down below. Would you ask a question or just post a comment?
