Friday's Feast #194

Appetizer

If you could live on another continent for 1 year, which one would you choose?


I think it would be Africa.
It's one of my oldest and strongest dreams.

Without knowing why, I've always felt a very close bond with Mali.
Movies from around the Mopti area made me feel at home.
So I want to know how I feel when I'm there.

Which browser do you use to surf the Internet?

IE.
Firefox didn't open all sites for me.

Salad

On a scale of 1-10 (with 10 being highest), how much do you know about the history of your country?


Well, I couldn't scale myself well when I didn't know it all or had no sense about it.

I know the history of my country rather well, and I'll think I'll score a 7 or 8 on a test.
When they don't want to have exact dates it'll be certainly an 8.

At school I didn't care much for the subject, but later I changed my mind.
I wanted to know who the people were we sang about, how different our history is from that of other countries, how interrelated some countries are, etc etc.
And ofcourse WW2 grasped my attention, as my family was in the middle of it.

Modern history is for the main part a kind of exhibition of how stupid people are.
They refuse to learn from the past.
They behave as tribal as those primitive people they despise, by declaring war to countries that won't do exactly what the feudal lord wants.

History and especially modern history makes me feel an individual.
Sometimes even makes me feel stand apart from the world, because I see that most of it is about people feeling better than others and imposing their view on others.

It's time we people start making a history of peace and respect we can feel proud about.


Main Course

Finish this sentence: Love is…


Aha... that makes me remember those puppets in the paper.

Love is...mailing each other "I love you" at the same time.

Dessert

Have you ever been in or near a tornado?


Not a real tornado. No.

But last winter we had storms here with the same windspeed as tornados... does that count?
Don't think so....
