Quote from: Baruch on September 12, 2017, 12:28:24 AMYes, one arm can grow a whole new starfish ... but the arm has to have part of the gut. Kind of hard to regrow 80% of your body if you can't eat ;-(
Quote from: Cavebear on September 14, 2017, 03:51:11 AMWell, can you do that? I'll give you an arm, a leg AND most of your guts.!
Quote from: Baruch on September 14, 2017, 07:32:40 AMYes, starfish are seriously superior to ape men.
Quote from: Cavebear on September 14, 2017, 08:08:19 AMWell, who is further up the food chain? The lobster eat the starfish and I eat the lobster.
Quote from: Baruch on September 14, 2017, 08:19:26 PMAnd the crabs eat you, if you fall overboard and drown ;-) Tough getting the fur out of their mouth parts though ;-(
Quote from: Cavebear on September 19, 2017, 03:10:49 AMIf I die in the water, I am food for all the sea life. If I die on the land, I am food for all the land life. Molecules to molecules, atoms to atoms, all is recycled. And that is why I desire an open grave. *I* won't know I'm being eaten and returned to the Earth...
Quote from: Baruch on September 19, 2017, 10:20:51 PMIt is a well known paranoia, that you are aware of it as your body decays and is consumed and turned to dust ... because you are still you, being only a body, no matter what condition you are in.
Quote from: Cavebear on September 23, 2017, 04:36:09 AMOh sad theist you. You assume I think I would be aware of my own death and end of existence. When I die, I will be as unaware of any existence as the swatted fly or the stomped ant. It takes a real theist to imagine existence beyond death. And I am not one...Why is "The End" so hard for you to grasp? There is suddenly "NO AWARENESS". Is your self image so HUGELY egoistic it cannot conceive of the event of end-of-life?
Quote from: Baruch on September 23, 2017, 05:35:39 PMYou may be right. I was just quoting a traditional belief.
Quote from: Cavebear on September 28, 2017, 04:27:18 AMAnd that was not an answer...
Quote from: Baruch on September 28, 2017, 07:26:43 PMAs Tevye used to sing ... Tradition!
Quote from: Cavebear on October 01, 2017, 07:23:29 AMWell, I understood you were a rather traditional type. I'm not. But I admired the gradual changes in how the daughters approached their marriages. Sunrise, sunset...
Quote from: Baruch on October 01, 2017, 03:41:42 PMThere were good parts. The last daughter, in the book, commits suicide ;-( I prefer A Funny Thing Happened On The Way To The Forum.
Quote from: Cavebear on October 04, 2017, 03:46:44 AMI don't find humor a good read. There are a few exceptions. Caddychack. Groundhog Day is more my style.
Quote from: Baruch on October 04, 2017, 08:41:34 PMA Funny Thing Happened On The Way To The Forum ... could only be seen to be believed .. it is actually quite close to actual Roman comedy ...https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=T-hZhr2k2hk
