    That’s the question!

    Seems like the Pittsburgh cemeteries would be getting pretty full by now.

    Where do we go when we die? None of us can answer this question by using scientific methods. While we are in this life, the answer that we seek lies only in the realm of religion, philosophy, belief, faith, hope, etc., and each of us may find a different answer. But life is very short, and soon each of us will have an objective answer to this question, when the time comes for our own lives to end.

    In the meantime, there is another very important question that we can answer somewhat more objectively: “How meaningful are the lives that we are living today?” If we find that we are wasting our lives pursuing meaningless activities and accumulating possessions, or if our lives are focused only on ourselves at the expense of others, why should we long for a continuation of this life after we die? How enjoyable could it be, sharing our existence with others in the next life, if we have never even learned the meaning of sharing, or true joy, in this life?

    Living meaningful lives includes sharing love, developing trusting relationships with others, and having compassion for others, especially for those who are less fortunate. It is never too late for us to begin to improve, and if we are given enough time, great improvement can be possible. The city of Pittsburgh is now a beautiful city, compared to 25 years ago when Bill Watterson wrote today’s comic strip.

    None of us knows how many more days we will live. Therefore, as Hobbes says in another comic strip, “Let’s make the most of the time we have left.”

    Obviously Calvin has never been to Pittsburgh.

    @Dogsniff, have you seen the Superbowl ad where they did a take off of that famous ad with a kid and Dr. House (Hugh Laurie)? If not, it’s hilarious.

    @ Hobbes… wrote a beautiful plan for us to live by. However, because more people throughout history have been tortured, maimed, drowned, burned at the stake and otherwise killed in the name of religion, maybe we should leave religion out of the plan.

    This is directed to “Dogsniff” in regards to your comment about Mean Joe Green…Wasn’t it the kid that offered him the “Coke” and afterwards Joe tossed the kid a towel?
    I could be wrong and if so I have no problem with being corrected. All in all Four in a row and one for the thumb are words we’ll never forget. Sadly the plan didn’t come together in the end.

    If there IS an afterlife, then how come we don’t know anything about it? And I don’t mean what our minister or the pope says, since they only heard it from others, too.
    If there is an afterlife, can we remember in it what this life was like? Are we aware of who we were? If there was a pre-life, we surely can’t remember that.
    If there were previous lives and future lives, and we can’t know anything about them, then are we the same person then?

    Well, I believe that every soul when releases gets another body. May be of a human or of an animal or any other creature. It is also said that people who had a life of an animal in the last life don’t remember anything in that life but many have faint memories of other lives if born as a human. Most of the karma we do in this life is reflected in our next life. That’s why life is not fair for some and some are born with a silver spoon. But every human being has to suffer most of his deeds in this life itself…. That is why it is being taught to us as a child that never to do bad things coz God is looking at us… and we have to reap what we sow…

    Pittsburgh was where my Great Uncle sent me overseas. Those Quaker teetotalers would send a 20 years old Marine who was about to die (line worked on a sweet young thing) without his last drink in the civilized world. That was the only reason I did not vote for tricky Dick’s re-election. I swear, the only reason. Watergate wouldn’t have happened if they had only sold me a Schlitz.. Had to drink 3.2 on base. I have never returned to Pittsburgh, the closest place to hell.

    Definitely bad. If you’re good, you go to Green Bay.


    Good Morning, Marg, Mike & ♠Lonewolf♠!

    Considering what a wonderful place Pittsburgh is to live—definitely GOOD. Most liveable city…

    If I remember correctly ‘Sesame Street’ also did a version of that famous Coke commercial. I think the little boy tossed the football player a #7 for his shirt, and he tossed him a towel.
