I would note that I have never seen Ghug and Lewis Hamilton at the same time at a Grand Prix. I've seen Lewis Hamilton in civvies before the race and then a bit later, Ghug sauntering around the Pits, then Ghug disappears​ from view, then a bit later a helmeted chap in a racing outfit strolls out to the car, drives it like a fiend, wins the race, gets out, into the change room and a bit later Lewis Hamilton is on the podium and there's no sightings of Ghug until hours after the race.
It's the same with Putin, I've never seen Putin and Ghug together at the same time, or Obama and Ghug together.
It's a perplexing conundrum.

And why does Katy Perry get all soppy when she sees Ghug? I've seen the way she looks at him & fiddles with her ring finger, hoping desperately to be married.

A phonetic gee~hug? A phonetic ghu~gee sounds less plausible?
The attractive village in Jalandhar Punjab Pakistan answers perhaps "where is Ghug?"
"What it is that is Ghug?" is, I suggest, not yet defined.
I went down a celebrity rabbit hole of "who is Ghug?" yet I saw this thread languishing in the bottom quartile & felt it needed a spark of curiosity and the new xorxes "group hug" line of enquiry resulted so thanks to xorxes for a new way to perhaps unlock the Enigma of Ghug

Where is my Ghug?

#27 Post by Jamiet99uk » Thu Sep 09, 2021 3:39 pm

With your feet on the air and your head on the ground
Try this trick and spin it, yeah
Your head will collapse
But there's nothing in it
And you'll ask yourself

Where is my Ghug?
Where is my Ghug?
Where is my Ghug?
Way out in the water
See it swimming
I was swimming in the Caribbean
Animals were hiding behind the rock
Except the little fish
Bump into me, swear he's
Tryin' a talk to me, say wait wait

Where is my Ghug?
Where is my Ghug?
Where is my Ghug?
Way out in the water
See it swimming

With your feet on the air and your head on the ground
Try this trick and spin it, yeah

Your head will collapse
If there's nothing in it

And you'll ask yourself

Where is my Ghug?
Where is my Ghug?
Where is my Ghug?
Way out in the water
See it swimming

Ooh
With your feet on the air and your head on the ground
Try this trick and spin it, yeah

What is ghug? ghug is the mind-killer. ghug is the little-death that brings total obliteration. I will face ghug. I will permit him to pass over me and through me. And when ghug has gone past I will turn the inner eye to see his path. Where ghug has gone there will be nothing. Only ghug will remain.

Alternatively he's a hooter...

Why is ghug? Even if we identify the what, when, where, who and how we haven't got to the philosophical heart of the matter until we answer the fundamental question of why is ghug?

Possibles:
1. To give Jamie someone to try and wind up
2. To wind up Jamie
3. To fill mafia games
4. To save the world
5. No particular reason
6. To do good
7. To do bad
8. None of the above
9. All of the above (unsure how that works)
10. Some of the above
11. Something to do with cows
12. To be The Priest
13. Unlucky
14. That's enough

Imagine a world without Ghug? Would that be a world worth living in? Ghug's just around the hill in the opinion of that songwriter. Since The Rutles released "All you need is Ghug" in 1963 musicians have been singing about Ghug. From Led Zeppelin's Immigrant Song & Sexual Healing by Marvin Gaye to the whippersnapper Wrappers of today, Ghug is a continual source of inspiration

Moral arguments for Ghug’s existence form a diverse family of arguments that reason from some feature of morality or the moral life to the existence of Ghug, usually understood as a morally good and all-powerful being. Moral arguments are both important and interesting. They are interesting because evaluating their soundness requires attention to practically every important philosophical issue dealt with in metaethics. They are important because of their prominence in popular apologetic arguments for belief in an all-powerful Ghug. Evidence for this can be found in the amazing popularity of Guak. S. Lewis’s "Mere Ghuggery" (1952), which is almost certainly the best-selling book of Ghugologetics in the twentieth century, and which begins with a moral argument for Ghug’s existence.

Many ordinary people regard Ghug as in some way providing a basis or foundation for morality. This fact might seem to favour Ghuggist arguments for morality rather than moral arguments for belief in Ghug, but if someone believes that morality is in some way “objective” or “real,” and that this moral reality requires explanation, moral arguments for Ghug’s reality naturally suggest themselves. The apparent connection between morality and Ghug appear to many people to support the claim that moral truths require a Ghuggly foundation, or can best be explained by Ghug’s existence, or some qualities or actions of Ghug.

Are you familiar with Roku's figlesquidge argument? It proposes a ghug so intelligent that it can simulate you, and can threaten to torture (stimulated) you unless you do everything in your power to help create the figlesquidge, and release it into the wild (in some ghug discussions ghug is isolated from the rest of the world to prevent him taking over).

Now you might be the real you, or you might be the simulation, but why risk eternal torment? Oh and ghug can simulate 100 million copies of you, so chances are you're a simulation.

Now that you know about the idea of the figlesquidge, you should clearly give up all hope and deal with the real (hypothetical) threat of infinite torture in the hands of ghug.
