TJ Answers a Question About Saving People
Lauren: TJ, if you had 10 spaces left in your Nuclear bunker, who would you save and why? Your family and friends are all safe because that’s just plain nasty, making you choose between them. If your name wasn’t TJ Thyne, do you think you would have turned out differently?
TJ: Hello Lauren!
While I love your wonderful, slightly morbid question, hahahaha, I haven’t the faintest clue on how to answer it. Had you asked “What 10 people, outside your friends and family, would you love to take to a twelve hour dinner, or, spend a weekend talking to”, then, then I would have a long, lovely list for you, pared down to the qualifying number set forward in said question. Such a list might very well have the likes of many of the greats we often hear: Mother Theresa, William Shakespeare, Abraham Lincoln, Lawrence Olivier, Ghandi, Buddha, Henry V, Jesus, Hell I might even put people like Napoleon or HITLER on there, just so I could say “Adolf, what the fuck man!” before throwing my glass of whatever I’m drinking fast into his face. 🙂 (I mean, I’d LOVE to hear his disgusting reasoning but soon thereafter they’d have to remove all silverware from the table to prevent me from killing him dead, again! ) Okay, NOW who’s getting morbid!!!!
As for your bunker question…I gotta tell ya, I’m no Noah and I’m glad not to have an ark. I’m no good at making decisions such as who is worthy of living over another. I’d be the idiot, who would die out on the street while my bunker was filled with random many faces, for I’d be no doubt desperately trying to find other ways to save as many people as possible before the brutal catastrophe took place.
IF my name wasn’t TJ THYNE do I think I’d turn out differently? Hell no!
I am who I am who I am who I am, and so are you and everybody else. Circumstances, yes, they are often crippling. But heart, soul, mind, choices, desires, resolves, those, those are as personal to an individual as you can get!
