    What would you do to simplify the world?

    Do we really need to have 3 or more different stores carrying the same items (example: grocery stores like Ralphs, Albertsons, Stater Bros, Smiths, Bashas,...) in every city??? Couldn't they all combine as one? Think of the space that would open up (more room for new trails).

    Let's hear your ideas for simplifying our complicated world.

    I will challenge your reply by asking you specifically if you believe Democracy is the best we humans can do? I already know the correct answer to that question and the word begins with an "N".

    To simplify my world, I use different colors (nail polish) to identify different keys. I also put ice cream in my almost finished nutella jar. Ingenious!

    I like the way you think. To keep this going, I would drink more water and less soda.

    Think if we could just go back in time things would be simpler, not easier, simpler. We wouldn't need to go back too far, let's say right before Adam, Eve and the apple tree.

    On a scale regarding the age of our planet, that's just a blink of the eye.

    OK. I officially rescind the statement about wanting to buy the World a coke.

    However, I'd like to teach the World to sing.

    Well, OK then. Can you teach me how to sing the song "The hills are alive with the sound of music"?

    BTW, I stopped drinking anything carbonated (yes, even beer!) about 3 months ago now due to acid reflux. It sucks getting old.

    And congrats on three months carbonate free!
