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. 
The whole forum is Mor. We're emanations of his godlike mind.

Actually, Mor's face shineth like the Sun.

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

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.
Quote from: Nun M.
The dread Pantocrator...is also "Christouli mou", (my little Christ), who really listens when you run in to your neighborhood church on the way to work to cry and light a candle because your daughter is in trouble at school. The untouchable and all-holy Mother of God is also "Panayitsa mou", who really will take your part before the court of heaven because, just like your own mom, she’ll always stick up for her children, no matter how badly they’ve behaved.

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?
Happy shall he be, that shall take and dash thy little ones against the rock. Alleluia.

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?
