Who is calmer? A survey by H

This post is by H. We had one of our long drives into the city the other day and had lots of fun discussing various things, some very serious – some silly. H thought it would be great fun to share his ideas and examine the finer points of argument and considerations around the question, ‘Who is calmer?’ He came up with some rather amusing scenarios which he carefully wrote on his iPad.

Please take a second to appreciate his sense of humour and to respond to his survey so he has lots of fabulous data to examine and he can enjoy your perspective as well.

If you have another idea, H invites you to add it in the comments!

Happy New Year!

Leah and H

    Hm. Kruger with a glove would probably be calmer than without a glove (unless he didn’t like gloves), but still wouldn’t be that calm, as he wouldn’t be killing anyone at that point.

    Mona Lisa is VERY calm, but hardly ANYONE could be calm with silly string around (at least, in my expierence), so overall — probably not very calm — but I **REALLY** want to see someone illustrate this.

    Isn’t the Cat in the Hat doing Yoga throughout the books he’s in? I mean, what better way to entertain and terrify the kids he’s with that a good bout of Downward Facing Dog. So, probably no calmer than usual, which isn’t very calm — although he is rather self-centered, which is a form of calmness, I suppose…

    Knitting Hulk — depends in which form; Bruce Banner knitting certainly would be calm (especially the Avengers version), although he might be happier doing nano-knitting with tiny waldos. The Hulk-ed out Hulk doing knitting… wow. What an image. I mean, if he could hold the needles enough to do it, he’d must be calm, but, wouldn’t he transform back at that point? Interesting question. (Yes, I voted for this choice.)

    Daffy with melatonin. I’m not personally familiar with the effects of melatonin, so I can’t really speak to that one. Mr. Duck certainly isn’t that calm usually.

    So, these were my thoughts. I’d love to hear more from H (or anyone else).
