An Interview with Frank

I initially hesitated, but decided to participate in the Interview Game. My questions are from David at BasicBloganomics; who got his from THE BEEZE; who got his from Charlie. If you haven’t already, please read there’s too. As for the rules and how to get involved, that will come after the Q&A.

1.  There have been many significant and memorable moments in our world’s history.  Before your time, which is the one event you would have wanted to witness? As people argue and courts rule about various rights, people like to use “the intent of our Founding Fathers.” Well, I’d like to witness the Constitutional Convention to figure out who today gets the masking tape. The deliberations at that time had to be fierce, intense, and intellectually stimulating.

2.  There are many bad addictions out there in this world. Which one do you think is the worst or the toughest to overcome and why? Human Hate: Just think how much better the world would be without hate. Cultural would be appreciated and differences accepted. Many wars have been fought because of culture, and families continue the nonsense by teaching hate for others to their children. I’m not a Trekkie, but I recall the scene when the Vulcans first visited Earth and found human behavior (as hate, wars, etc) appalling.

3.  You’ve been given the chance to be President of the United States at anytime in history. Which one person throughout history would you have as your running mate and why?
I see the choice coming down to two people; George Washington for his steady hand and vision of unity, or a Thomas Jefferson for his brilliance and thinking-ahead beyond his times type of vision. Now my wife would say this is bunch of BS as I’d pick Shania Twain.

4.  Would you like to know the precise date of your death?
I used to believe that all of us had punch in-punch out cards in the great filing cabinet in the sky; that is predetermined dates of birth and death. Then I figured out that God would be that cruel. Life is what we make of it, so consider all the opportunities we chose not to pursue or don’t consider, or don’t know about. It’s all part of that life’s great unknown. So I say no.

By the way, for those who get the Last Meal question; find the tune Last Meal by Asleep at the Wheel.

5.  The world population has been a debatable topic for sometime. Is the ever-increasing world population an issue or not? If so, what would you do to solve it? Earth, like any other ecosystem has for its inhabitants, has a limited carrying capacity for humans. Yes, humans have the brainpower for innovative problem solving, but the limit is still there. The real question is what is that limit! On the other hand, Mother Nature and her forces are strong, thus when populations exceed the limit, things happen (as lack of food, water, space, etc) that returns the population below the limit. Until a one-Earth society exists, controls can only be applied by individual societies/cultures based on their perception.

Rules

  • To participate, leave me a comment requesting an interview.
  • I will send you five questions that I get to pick.
  • You answer the questions on your blog.
  • You should also post these rules along with an offer to interview anyone else who e-mails you wanting to be interviewed.
  • Anyone who asks to be interviewed should be sent 5 questions to answer on their blog.
  • It would be nice if the questions were individualized for each blogger. So I will follow the rules and offer to interview anyone who would like to play.

  1. Great answers Frank! I did attempt to individualize it for you, and all the answers you gave were good ones.

    That’s a good one for No. 1. Maybe they’ll get a time machine for you to see that! LOL!

    I can agree with No. 2. It’s the thought process of those before us that continue to spiral on down the line to coming generations with hate. For the record, I think many people need to understand the difference between hate and dislike as well.

    The Shania Twain line was funny on No. 3, but it’s hard to argue on Washington and Jefferson.

    Nice to see we agree on No. 4. I was going to ask the Last Meal question, but I passed on it.

    Great answer on No. 5 for which I can agree. Yeah, the poverty level in general has been affected by world population.

    Nice job and thanks for playing along!

  2. Frank, you did well.

    My real running mate would have been Harry Truman, my fantasy running mate, Sophia Loren. Of course, there may have been a citizenship problem there, but one can dream.

    • Well done Joe. But wait, the citizenship thing effects one of my options! ha ha …

      Give ’em hell Harry must have been interesting, especially considering he left office with a very low rating; a hair better than President Bush. To go along with that, some pundits are making a GW-Truman comparison to say history will treat him well. Time will tell … and that is a bit off topic.

      Welcome … thanks for stopping by, and hope you return.
