    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.

    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!

    All men would be named "Bob"

    All women named "Barb"

    All other words condensed to one word.... "pudding"

    Bob! pudding pudding pudding Barb! pudding pudding pudding! PUDDING Bob pudding pudding Barb pudding pudding PUDDING pudding.

    See? so much simpler.

    Simplify the world…

    …Quit my job and relive my childhood. I'd start by finding the biggest construction site I could find, of course on a hot summer day. Then I'd set up my 10˘ Lemonade stand right in front of it and watch the dough roll in.

    Been there... doing that. No lemonade stand. Yep, it's great!

    The world already is simple. It's the people that are complicated. I just removed myself from the people.

    One time only, erase all debt, monetary and otherwise. I'm talking worldwide here. Just think how relaxed everybody would be. You get to keep what you've got and start over. I know what you are thinking, those poor credit card companies.... They get to keep what they have too so they'll be alright. See, I've really thought this through.

    Either that or the Bob, Barb & Pudding thing.
