Philosophy 101 Questions
If a tree falls in a forest, but there’s no one there to hear it, does
it make a sound? Who cares? THESE are the important points to ponder in this game we call
eat a whole pumpkin pie (with whipped cream), but there’s no one there to
see you, are you still a pig?
If your house has beautiful place settings, lovely linens and
gorgeous flower arrangements, but you have zero personality, are you, in
reality, Martha Stewart?
If you pompously look down on publications like The
National Enquirer, The Globe, and the Star, but secretly inhale every
issue of People, US and InStyle, do
you have latent tabloid tendencies?
If you know every word of every song Barry
Manilow has ever sung, but you don’t admit it to anyone, are you still a dork?
If you watch The Silence of the Lambs, but you have your
hands over your eyes the whole time, can you really rag on your friends
who were too scared to see it?
you accidentally knock over every single bike in the KMart sporting
goods department, but there's no one there to see you, do they really go
clackity clackity clackity clack clack clack? (I am just guessing, this has
never really happened to me…)
right... class dismissed for now. Your homework is to ponder these ageless
questions and be prepared to discuss them. There will be more where these came
from, and of course a quiz...
oh, oh! Since our brown nose students have requested it, here's an extra credit
assignment for you Philosophy 101 students!
