Today’s Daily Prompt: You’re tasked with creating a brand new astrological sign for the people born around your birthday — based solely on yourself. What would your new sign be, and how would you describe those who share it?
My belief about Zodiac signs is defined by the image below:
I suppose that I have defined and described myself by refusing to create a new zodiac sign.
Life is what you make it. Don’t let an unproven system define you and what your life will be. You alone are responsible for that! Never let anyone take that away from you!
Today’s Daily Prompt asks: If you had to come up with one question, the answer to which would determine whether or not you could be friends with a person you’ve just met, what would it be? What would the right answer be?
Question:How do you know that what you believe in is right?
Answer By looking at the evidence available. I am prepared to change my mind.
I always ask this to determine people’s open-mindedness. Not everything we believe in is true. Some can be true today but may not be tomorrow. An open, yet critical mind will take you far in life.
Today’s Daily Prompt:A mad scientist friend offers you a chip that would allow you to know what the people you’re talking to are thinking. The catch: you can’t turn it off. Do you accept the chip?
The idea of having a device that tells me what people are thinking is too good an opportunity to miss. I’m going to say YES even though I cannot turn it off, providing that I am the only one who would ever have it.
I can only imagine dealing with car-, insurance-, and mortgage sales representatives who would try to con me. Job interviews would also be easier, not to mention my future job as a psychologist!!
How can I turn it off? Well, I would not talk to people if I do not want it activated!!
I took this photo a few months ago somewhere in Manchester’s city centre. I love the way it highlights the contrast between technological progress and people’s actual needs. It is great to be able to have a hand-held device that allows us to communicate to people anywhere in the world, browse the internet and store a lot of information. However, we must not forget the simple, most basic things in life, such as face to face conversations. We have all seen a group of people out in public places who are more interested in their phones than the people who are with them.
Today’s Daily Prompt: Soft drinks, electronics, nutrient-free snacks – you can get all of those from a vending machine. But what type of vending machine is sorely needed but doesn’t yet exist? Share your automated retail fantasies with us!
First of all, I must say that this prompt is a very, very cool one! Kudos to the peeps at Daily Post!!
I found it very hard to think of a really cool, yet non-existent vending machine. What I really wanted already existed – a vending machine that dispenses cars. Look:
What I think this society needs is a vending machine that dispenses really bright and cool ideas. Most people (that I have encountered) lack imagination, creativity and innovative ideas, and I feel that we could all use an easy way out. I know that this idea sounds ridiculous as each of us may have a different opinion of what constitutes a good idea and what doesn’t. Also, who would monitor and manufacture the vending machines? Nevertheless, even though it is a wild idea, I would stick to it.
There’s a catch, though. Every idea that you get from the vending machine comes with the chip that Sheldon Cooper described in the Big Bang Theory:
