THE QUESTION

Some human beings will fight and kill each other to grab the last breath of oxygen left on earth.

Some human beings will share that last breath of oxygen.

You can throw all your philosophical, theology and metaphysical questions off the highest mountain.

It doesn't matter how we live with religion or without because we all die the same way: we stop breathing.

There is only one question............

Are you a grabber or a sharer?

This site is becoming far too philosophical for me.

I'm certainly not a grabber because they put you in jail for doing that!

I'll tell you the truth; I've grabbed from the fat boys, and never been slow to share proceeds. Or my daughter would not have been so nicely dressed. And others as well. I regret not one bit of it, ever in my life. My conscience is clear.

Good post JahTeh, cut to the chase. Confronting question, I'd like to say I'm a sharer, (obviously). I guess it depends who or what I'm sharing with, an infant an eighty-year old or several hundred million bacteria? Reminds me of that film about the Polish pianist in Warsaw during the Nazi occupation. The Pianist?? The father cutting up a caramel into four pieces for his family. Poignant, pathetic, but symbolic of the manifold need to share.

Trust you RH to be the best of both worlds.

Daniel only if you grab RH.

Link, You can't do that, you have to share with everyone although I have a sneaking suspicion you would put Luke and Oedipus first in line.

Andrew said...

I am a natural stand back and wait for everyone else to finish but I have learned the hard way. I will be in first and nothing left for anyone else.

Really though,I don't think you would know until you were in that situation.

Ron said...

It would be nice to think I would share but in reality ... perhaps it would be depend on whether I was about to share with a close family member or a stranger.

Hmm ... I might end up like Link/Luke: you just haven't seen my georgous, cuddly Jack Russells called Brindy and Bella.

Three deletes and you're out, isn't it? Some folk are tiresome, aren't they? I could provide a list if you like. Howard, Bush, Blair, Olmert...

You're all doomed! You were supposed to say sharers and then I would make room in my spaceship to rescue you before the earth blows up.

Oh come on, did you really expect serious stuff from me?

Brownie said...

I am definitely one of the sharers. I have done some shockin stupid sharin things you woulden believe. And it brings a laugh, so one is rewarded. The world's a funny place that's fer shur.

Bwcas are an endangered species, your seat in the space ship is reserved.
