Survey Says… A Seriously Personal Poll For Women

A while back I wrote a post entitled The Most Beautiful Girl In The World. I believe it is on it’s way to being my most popular post. I am grateful to that because I want everyone to read it. If not for the name of my blog, I would even have liked it to be posted on Freshly Pressed. Alas, that didn’t happen. No regrets.

If you didn’t read the post, please do. My wife April had a conversation recently on the baggage people carry around all of their lives because of the hurt and pain some have experienced in childhood. It was a rather lengthy talk and April suggested I use Morning Erection as a platform to do a survey asking people a series of questions and then post the results.

We came up with a long list of questions, some of which are extremely personal and some which might stir up emotions that you might not want to deal with. Questions include topics such as molestation, weight issues, self-esteem, suicide and rape. We are still working on the list (today is October 5, 2010) of questions. I’m not exactly sure when I will publish this post, but I want you to know that at the time of this writing, it will have been several weeks in the making. Read the rest of this entry »

Time Travel

Time Travel

Another crazy post from the science fiction loving imagination of Tom Baker. I love the movie Time Cop. Don’t laugh, I thought it was a well thought out piece of creative sci-fi and that is where the catalyst for this post comes from.

If time travel were possible (you invented it) and you could go anywhere in time where would you go? Keep in mind that if time travel were readily available most likely you could only travel into the past because the future has not happened yet. So traveling backwards in time, where would you go and to what time?

As for me, I would like to go back in time and buy shares of stock in all the major oil companies around the world. I would purchase 10,000 shares of each companies preferred stock and set up a bank account (in the past). I would use the money for people who are unemployed today and those without health insurance. I would use the money to start a company that would help keep benefits going for the millions who have exhausted their benefits. People like Iron Cook Carl, who have exhausted their unemployment benefits, who have children and need to continue to have a roof over their heads.

I just heard the Republicans have overturned the healthcare bill today that was passed last year helping millions without insurance in the U.S. Also the Republicans and Democrats can’t seem to get together to help the so called 99ers who have exhausted all benefits but still have living expenses; I think going back in time might help.

In a far less noble gesture, I think I would like to go to ancient Egypt and see exactly how they made those pyramids.

What would you do and where would you go?
