Depends on the situation.

Q4. If you had a choice of changing your past or seeking through your future, what would you choose?

I would prefer knowing about my future; especially if that future would not be immutable, giving me the chance to avoid bad things which I would not have known about otherwise.

Q5. If I give you a chance of being a part of a Sci-Fi movie and tell you to delete your site permanently for being a part, what would you do?

Then I would prefer not to be in the science fiction film; as I have worked at my blog since 2005 and have attracted millions of visits.

August 4, 2019 to Today

William’s questions, and my answers, are:

1. For how much time you have been blogging now?

Since early 2005. I am on WordPress since December 2011. Before that, I was on two other blogging sites. Which were bought by big corporations which then killed them; so, I had to move twice.

2. What is an advice that you would like to give to other bloggers?

It seems easier for search engines to find your blog if you have a picture or a video on top of your blog post.

3. Would you rather sacrifice yourself for the whole world or sacrifice the world for yourself?

If I would sacrifice the whole world for myself, then there would be nothing for me to live for.

I might sacrifice myself for the whole world, but only if there would be a 100% cast-iron guarantee that then all wars would stop, that all global warming and other attacks on the environment would stop; etc.

4. Would you rather jump from a plane or would you rather eat a cockroach and a lizard?

Neither. I don’t weant to die an awful death. And cockroaches and lizards are interesting animals, which I would not eat.

5. What is one place that interests you the most?

The little auk nesting colony on Spitsbergen.

My five questions for my nominees are:

1. Who is your favourite artist?

2. Who are your three least favourite prominent people in politics or business?

3. Which is your favourite bird species?

4. If you would be a plant, would you then like to grow in a jungle or in a desert?

5. What is the best thing which happened to you in this year 2019?

My nominees are:

1. Medicare health blog

2. Stories of Ecstasy

3. Stephanie’s Book Reviews

4. HIPERBOLA

5. Just show, Dont tell

NATO visits Dear Kitty. Some blog


This 16 February 2016 video is called Europe Refugee Crisis: NATO plans to halt flow of refugees.

Today, the WordPress statistics of this blog registered a visit from an office of the NATO military alliance.

They especially visited yesterday’s post on Dear Kitty. Some blog about the protest in The Hague, the Netherlands against the role of NATO in making people refugees and stopping these refugees if they flee to Europe.

Welcome, NATO employees, like all visitors to this blog!

I hope you will learn something from your visit that will help to stop NATO policies of wars and xenophobia.
