Ohhh. Tough choice sort of. I think be remembered forever. I wonder if living forever might make life seem less precious…? Less meaningful maybe if we knew we had forever anyway. And then…if that forever is in a decrepit old feeling body…what fun is that anyway? But…in a decent middle aged body and mind…couple hundred years might be fun
Buried or cremated (not any time soon of course )
I always thought cremation. My mother was cremated, she wanted to be placed under a birdbath in our backyard that she liked. But then we sold the house and 30 years later I drive by and no birdbath. So, it bugs me. My father was also cremated, he was supposed to have a military ceremony. My sister and I spent 4 years on the phone with the military, they finally told us the warehouse with WW2 documents burned down in the 70s. So, his ashes are still in my apartment. Maybe I want to be put in the ground. But the preparation is wasteful and bad for the environment, so I think just deposit me.
The old quote is we die twice, first when the last breath leaves our body, again when the last person says our name.
Would you prefer to be remembered in a poem or name on a building.
Oh that’s kind of sad about your folks.
Not sure why but the thought of being cremated creeps me out. So does being in a coffin. Not sure why cause I do believe dead is dead. And I agree the burial thing is wasteful. Now there are some new ways of composting a body. It’s kind of big in parts of California. I think since I’m a Veteran that I have the option of burial at sea. That’s the way I’d like to go out. It’s got a romantic flare to it in some odd way.
Remembered in a poem. That’s nice.
Wake or memorial some time later?
A memorial. Maybe an Irish wake.
Owe money or owe a favor
Owe a favor. Though owing money is a cleaner payback as you just pay and you’re done. You never know when favor payback will ask to be redeemed and often it seems to foil plans, it you can’t really say no. So I guess I should have picked owe money
Tell someone you don’t know well they have something stuck on their tooth, yes or no
Yes, I would politely tell them. I have also told strangers when their barn door is open
Internet, blessing or curse?
Well, to our generation I think it seems to be more of a mixed bag. But overall, blessing I think. It does get folks in to the doctor more to tell us how wrong we are because Dr Google knows everything… Damn Dr Google. I bet he got off without student loans too
Google or other search engine
Google. Bing is the worst.
Will there be any jobs left after Artificial Intelligence: Yes or No
I like Google too. Back in 1999/2000 I was training on the Rez and worked with this Doc who urged me to buy Google stock. Of course I was a student and didn’t have money for any stock, but I sure wish I’d scraped together something and done it… but I can say I’ve had the same Gmail address since, so I guess that’s something,
Death: rather know when you’re gonna go or have it stay a mystery
I'd say I'd rather know. Might get depressing, but, if there's only a year to go, I don't want to spend it working.
I don't think I'd want to know other people. Wouldn't want an expiration date on everyone.
Since it is Fleet Week here, men (or women) in uniform or not.
