QUESTION: Would there be fish?

QUESTION: Would my brain be in a vat in order to think?

QUESTION: Would the people be dead or just not existent?

QUESTION: Would I have to disclose my feelings regarding this phenomenon should it take place?
God bless!

Bishops love kiwifruit. 
Mor Ephrem is a nice guy.  Just say sorry and it will all be ok. Say I had things that were inside troubling me but I didn't know how to express appropriately. I will not behave that way again but I am seeking help.

thank you so much Mor ephrem you are a hero!

The lack of people is not the same as the presence of fish

In the local Granbury, Texas area?
I'm with the camp of 13 million Americans that believe politicians are, or are controlled by, Reptilians. I think only monks can solve this problem. It doesn't seem right that they prefer to ignore it.

If there's no people on a certain swath of the water, don't count on fish being there either. Unless you saw the salmon a-jumping yourself, you're probably going to waste the time you should have used for traveling on setting the gear. While you're sitting on a skunk net, the fish is likely getting further away, and by the time you realize this, you're going to waste even more time having to pull it out of the water. Before you know it, you've burned through the day and hundreds, if not thousands, of dollars.

Sometimes though, you luck out and hit the mother lode, at which point everyone shows up.

We apologise for the inconvenience, but all grievances are to be submitted in triplicate.

Only one person who is prayerfully connected to God is needed, and we will have peace everywhere -- in the family, at work, in the government, and everywhere.

Do you mean at the Western Rite Church you were talking about before, WPM?

No, in the immediate neighborhood vicinity.

Over the years I progressed to thinking that it is a mind trick.

Will barbecue replace the existence of people?

So people are moving out of your local neighborhood?  Are you one of the last families there?  Are the other houses boarded up?

Yes, been here for a long time.

Do you think they are maybe staying indoors because of the heat?
