Why do I feel your topic #1 is aimed at me, hmmm, guess I'm getting paranoid 😝🤣

Not sure I'll have enough mojo left, the past few weeks, and most especially this one, work has drained me. Then again, maybe that's perfect to just delve into some paint or such. I definitely can't wait for tonight.

The clone subject sounds fun, too, the immortal one not so much. I mean, what's the point? Throw yourself in front of a bus or out of a plane without a chute just to feel every bone in your body breaking when you hit the ground but, hey, you're not dead, yet you have the pain? That's a definite - no thank you, Sir. I'd be interested to see if somebody comes up with something better to use weekend immortality for, really interested...

Why do I feel your topic #1 is aimed at me, hmmm, guess I'm getting paranoid

Well, no one has taken up the challenge yet, there must be one brave soul out there, surely.

Not sure I'll have enough mojo left, the past few weeks, and most especially this one, work has drained me.

There is no obligation.

the immortal one not so much. I mean, what's the point?

Someone suggested lava swimming. Seems like something I'd do.

Brave? Me? Nope.

Of course, no obligation but - enticement.

Swimming through lava? Hmm, I don't know, feeling my skin burnt to crisp like in a salmons skin sushi, just a little bit hotter... On the other hand - warm is good IMO. Hmmm... I think I'd still vote NO

You used to answer one of your prompts yourself - whatever happened to that? Did Ijust miss it?

Nah, not you, I meant someone else.

I don't know, feeling my skin burnt to crisp like in a salmons skin sushi, just a little bit hotter

Immortality takes care of this. I think I'd do it. I'd swim down to the centre of the Earth and see what I found there. Remember that movie about it? Seemed like a nice place to be, away from humanity.

You used to answer one of your prompts yourself - whatever happened to that? Did I just miss it?

I get this question a lot actually. You're right, I used to answer them quite often but got out of the habit. What do you think, is this week a good time to do so?

Nah, not you, I meant someone else.

Sure you did. Totally. I trust... you...?

There were a few movies to/through the center of the Earth - which one? I'm pretty sure I've seen it. Away from humanity - at least for a while sounds pretty tempting. Just imagine the silence... I'm almost there already...

You do? I guess I don't read too much / too many comments but every now and then I miss your take on your own challenge. This week? It's as good as any - why not go for it?!

Sure you did. Totally. I trust... you...?

It's been known to happen, people trusting me, and it's never been misplaced.

I think I'll take up your challenge and answer one of the questions this week. And, it may have something to do with lava swimming and the centre of the Earth.

Questions are interesting. Count me in for this weekend engagement 🙂 Lets find some creativity in me

Consider yourself counted in.

Let's go!!

Hopefully, you go for being immortal. And you may not go for that.
Either way, I am eager to see what you will come up with.

This got me cracking my brain again. To live, only for one weekend......

To live, only for one weekend...

Nope, immortal, but for only one weekend.

Nobody wants to die, so many fear death. However, when given the ability to be immortal, they lose sight of what to do with it.

I ran away from that one because I really do not want to be immortal.

I am looking forward to seeing what you will come up with.

Confusion in a state of immortality, that'ss the only thing that comes with immortality..
I'm done cooking my immortality trance. You can check it out.

I sure will check it out.

Finally, some ideas to be creative with this weekend.

But damn! The first two seem really challenging. I guess I may just stick with the third one.

I am normally fascinated by scientific concepts like the human clone, but I never really gave much thought into it. Now I have to think of a million ways having a clone can be beneficial and fun.

Think how much more productive you'd be if there was two of you.

Being immortal? I have crazy ideas already. Let me prepare my entry 🤸🤸🤸🤸🤸🤸🤸🤸🤸🤸🤸

Crazy is often good, and entertaining where the #weekend-engagement concept is concerned. ✅

So the wait is over - It's here finally!

Amazing Topics as always. Looking forward to see fun entries and take part in it.!

Happy weekend to everyone.

Happy weekend to you too.

I'm here thinking, what would I do if I become immortal, well not for the rest of my life but the weekend, what would I do?

But what happens after that weekend, I become mortal again?

Yep, mortal after the weekend, so you have two days to do stuff that would otherwise kill you I guess.

Woah!
What would kill me, I haven't really given that much thought before lol.
I don't want to die 😆

Yeah, dying is rather final.

Well, that's true lol.

🤣🤣😂🤣🤣😂😂 I need to take a peek into your brain sir. So much creative juices flowing. 🤩🤩🤩

 last month (edited) 

There's not much in there, my head is mostly hollow.

😂😂🤣😂😂 I still like the way you think.

Lol, sometimes when I think, the thoughts echo endlessly in my mind, so empty is my head.

😂😂🤣😂😂🤣 that's the way it might sound but to us...it's wisdom from the depth of the earth...

Sometimes the echoes are so loud I can't hear myself think.

😂😂🤣😂🤣 I can't win this argument.

He's immortal I guess 🤣.. Can we clone him? Haha..

Hahahaha that would be absolutely nice. Let's clone him.

To be immortal for one solid week is an idea most humans won't conceive in their entire stay on earth. How wild your reasoning and imaginative power is only a high thinking souls could do a nice work on these topics. Very engaging, very creative.
Solid topics for the weekend.

Solid indeed.

Thank you for the great topics Sir! This came at the same time I have been wishing I have the power to make clones 😁 I definitely have a few things in mind for what I will do if I have a clone for the weekend. Immortality for a weekend does sound appealing as well, I think I have a way I can incorporate it into the weekend clone option, will that be okay with you if I merge both into one article?

Merge away.

Duly noted! 😊 Thank you Sir

I’m definitely the clone guy. There’s too much to do with it. You still managed to come with up with thought conflicting topics though, it’ll be hard settling between 2&3. I would’ve loved to do the art, but I’m not artist:( Let’s see what I choose though.

Let's see huh?

Not artsy so not that one, immortality for a weekend could be fun who can I knock off and not die 🙃 doing it?

Clone... Hum another to ponder.


Fun.jpg

Lol, a clone of you...Is the world ready for two of of you?

Could be quite entertaining thinking about it...
Depends on who is asking 😁

Haha, indeed.

This should be fun. Let me perform some money heist sir.

Tough one today. Being immortal just for a weekend. That means even if you get shot, get burnt, hit by a car you're not gonna die right?. Tough one but I guess as usual I've got to write something.

Sometimes doing tough things can be rewarding.

Someone told me that picking the tough Task makes you better at what you do. I finally wrote something on immortality. Hope you check it out.

I think taking the more difficult paths can teach one how to deal with difficulties and challenges better, and that brings opportunity. Who ever said that to you seems wise indeed.

Unique topics.... This will make one think deep

Deep thinking is ok now and then right?

Yes it is very okay

Oh my God! I would like to be immortal and perform different extreme activities... That I would not consciously dare to do... And if I better have a clone to do it for me while I watch.... I don't know what to do! hahahaha

How about an immortal clone? Best of both worlds.

Woooowwww, that would be extraordinary!
Like when people have a twin and one is more risky than the other. It takes bumps, falls but is still at the foot of the cannon. Hahahaha. Immortal forever.

It's a good way to preserve oneself. It would be like having one's own crash test dummy.

I need one... but urgently ok....
To accompany me on my parachute flight ....untitled.gif

Better your crash test dummy finds out someone didn't pack your parachute properly than you, yourself.

Time to have a thorough thinking🥺, those topics are wow.

Thinking pays dividends at times.

I know right.

Immortal for a weekend and a way to fake my death but only during a weekend. Well, those are two interesting scenarios to do shenanigans!

Sometimes doing shenanigans is the only obvious choice. 😁

I swear when you read mine your wife is going ask "what's so funny?" 😂

Hmm, intriguing. 🤔

Though, you might find it extremely silly too 😂

Probably, but that's totally fine.

Sure thing. I love silly. 😂

This is quite engaging. I will be sharing my soonest before the deadline. Thank you for this challenge.

No worries, just follow the guidelines and you'll be good to go.

Thank you. :)

Having a badass clone will be so cool...

Indeed, I'd send it to work and have fun myself instead.

😅😅😅 a fun weekend it will be.

Oh. I don't know how to draw 😔🥲

Bummer.

These proposals force us to think, meditating to see what I write about. Happy weekend.

Making people think is the plan.

I saw it. "lava swimming" made me laugh.

Fun and interesting questions for the week. The second is making me wish I could be immortal for a weekend. Hahaha

You can be, but only in your post on Hive. 😊

Hahaha. That's right

Indeed.

Now I always wait for the weekend to see what new occurrences brings us, to be immortal, a clone, a challenge, sure to be immortal will attract many, to do things that do not dare for fear of risking their lives, well only in hive they can do it, live to dream, greetings.

On the Hive blockchain anything is possible.

A question please, is there a word limit? I've started drafting my post and from all indications it's over 1000 words. This topic just brought out the writer in me 🤣

I will put the finishing touches on it tomorrow but i don't know if there's a minimum and maximum word rule.

... and sure, I'm sure the readers won't be bored when reading it.

No more than three million words. 😁

Okay, I'll keep it at 2 million plus 🤣

Easy, it'll only take me ten years to read then.

Hello Galen and weekenders

This looks like fun. I can see myself getting into writing each week with nice topics like these. I have never thought about having the opportunity for an immortal weekend before, skydiving without a chute, bungee jumping without a chord? You don't die, but do you get disfigured if you do something stupid?

New on HIVE blogchain, am definitely gonna jump on this 😁

Ok, sounds good. Just make sure you follow the guidelines of the concept as per this post.

Sure I will.

Ahh... Claude Debussy was such an eccentric composer(my favourite impressionist btw) and he had such a profound way with his words.

This particular quote, alongside this:

"But music, don't you know, is a dream from which the veils have been lifted. It's not even the expression of a feeling, it's the feeling itself."

Are my top 2 favourite of his.


I don't know how you do it man, but these topics are even more creative than last week's! Hopefully, I can conjure up something good enough for this week's engagement.

Ahh... after such a stressful week, sitting down to write for something this creative, is just what the doctor required i'm sure.

Thanks and take care Oracle!

Debussy knew what he was about, although (interestingly) strongly rejected the impressionist composer tag. We look back now (listen back) and simply enjoy his brilliance, no matter what he was called.

I don't know where my topics come from, I mean my brain obviously, but they tend to just pop in there when required and I roll with it.

I hope you enjoy your creative writing and weekend also.

True, he also hated being compared with Ravel XD

Well, that's quite convenient then - ain't it? Keep em coming!

Oh I will, I was planning to attend a concert tomorrow even. There's an orchestra in town performing Mahler's symphony No. 5; so, that should be as relaxing as it would be somber😅

Thanks anyway!

It sounds like you have a good weekend planned. I hope you enjoy it.

After almost a month off on vacation, I am back! Here is my entry for this weekend: https://ecency.com/hive-168869/@plint/we-115-my-immortal-weekend

Finally a genie granted me the wish to be immortal 😂 thanks for the fun, this is my post and in a few hours I will be able to enjoy the content of others.

https://peakd.com/hive-168869/@soyunasantacruz/story-enjoying-immortality-or-we-115

It seems like our imagination here gonna be tested. 😹😹

Aghhhh.. been thinking of a random thought so that I could create a blog here. 😆😆

I hope I can make my entry later. Happy weekend @galenkp !! 😍😍

Yes, I saw it but you haven't complied with the guidelines and, as the announcement post states, I don't give reminders. I expect people to read the entry guidelines for themselves. Maybe you could go back, read the announcement post, and amend you post to comply?

Okay, I will do that now.Thank you.

You understand that I can't chase everyone up right? I release the topics and it's up to the entrants to be responsible for their entry. If you amend it I'll have a read.

Interesting prompts for this weekend.
I am glad to make an entry for it.
Below is the link to my entry.
