What was the last thing that made you laugh out loud? Like, belly laughs til you cried.

Not exactly till i cried but surely quite a few belly laughs watching Bugs and Daffy(Especially Daffy's oblivious narcissism)

Either because they're insane (according to the definition of insanity often attributed to Einstein), or because they don't realize that they can't get what they're really looking for by the method they're using.

Do you think chimpanzees have arguments?

i reckon they either have fights or settle their differences at social grooming times . This one i bet explains a lot(of the visible absence of the arguments)

I live in a very polite part of the world; haven't touched my horn in ages, literally years. I do engage in a loud "whatthefuuuck!" accompanied by hand gestures occasionally though.

Do you think humans should engage in more social grooming?

tell you what... looks good on paper...but way in the early 80's being forecefully groomed by Mum for the suspected incidence of Lice( which somehow as she put it didn't like my unsweet blood) was neither a pretty nor a pleasant experience. so the answer is no..but again i could be wrong as some adults may enjoy it.

your answer?

No I do not, unsolicited touching is not necessary. If I wanted grooming I would do it myself or ask. If I don't ask, don't do it.

I have two, actually: the first is morning when the squirrels are at play and the rising light through the elm tree casts shards of crystal across the room.  The second is the evening when the setting light filters through the double-front window crystals and the yard is filled with wildlife, rabbits, squirrels, birds, a possum meandering across the yard, etc.  These are magical despite the season , although winter brings a scarcity of animals during the extreme cold. I guess more light through barren trees is the tradeoff.

What is your all-time favorite poem and why?

Class won a talent contest, we got to go to an adventure park

do you think there's merit in the recent assertion that Austrailian natives were/ are the oldest civilization on earth

so far the boffins are saying the Natives go much more back than 40 thousand years the latest numbers put their early marks on this land around 60 thousand years. One of the oldest, Yes, but 'the' oldest... i doubt we can settle for that...for one thing it has been agreed upon is the First People here themselves arrived after a long journey from somewhere over the seas further to our north... i'd leave the rest to your imagination

Were you surprised/amused when Galway was chosen as European Capital Of Culture for 2020?  and Craic has much to do with that i bet!

First I heard of it but I do like craic

Do you think Atlantians existed. I love language and if you trace it back it connects, perhaps babel existed also

Galway has a decent enough scene, music, comedy, and art. plus it has the gaelteach : an area where people speak only Irish (gaelic) theres a school / college poeple come from all over thr country and other countries to attend. so wasn't surprised as such. did wonder what the criteria was


what do you think the criteria should be

perhaps bro... they did..

@Lepperochan
i infer the criteria was how the folks down there deal with life...light hearted approach.. to be frank i doubt there is a better criteria
