The IF Factor: Questions Answered 421-430

421. If you could realize a dream that you have had while asleep, what dream would you pick?

Walking the aisle at Wrestlemania. I'm don't remember what that dream was about, I know, strangely enough,  but I always felt walking the aisle at a Wrestlemania would such a cool moment. 

422. If you could choose two colors and one symbol to represent a new country created by you, what two colors and symbol would you choose?

I would choose dark blue and light blue, with white being a given color. I would choose a cross bar along with a old-English style cross in front of it. Because there are sites out there that allow you to actually design your own flag, I messed around and brought my vision to life.



423. If you had to identify the worst hotel room you have ever stayed in, where was it?

Oh, this is quite easy for me. While my trip to Italy did include some tiny rooms, bathrooms, showers, and some other inconveniences not suitable or accustomed by Americans, nothing will ever compare to a Washington D.C. hotel I stayed in during my college baseball days. Roaches, a mice, drug deals, and I'm pretty sure prostitution was rampant throughout the night. VERY sketchy building, scene, and area. 

Oddly enough, my recent trip to DC included one of the coolest hotels I've ever been in, "The George." 

424. If you had to name the most important invention in history, what would win?

Wow, this is extremely hard. Right off the bat I want to say the computer, as I can't even imagine life without modern technology. Also the wheel comes to mind as well. However, I'll stick to my guns on my original thought and go with electricity. I'm sure that change the game for many facets in life. 

425. If you had to choose the best song ever composed, which one would it be?

Wow. Too hard. No matter what I answer with, I'll come up with something else and wonder what  was thinking at this exact moment. I'm going to go cheat and go with three songs that immediately come to mind, "Imagine" by John Lennon, "I Can Only Imagine" by MercyMe, and "Everlong" by Foo Fighters. I'm going with these three just on the sheer quality of the writing involved in the lyrics. All three songs evoke deep and interesting thoughts amid the music. 

426. If you could solve one unsolved crime, which one would you solve?

Another tough one - first thing that came to mind was the unsolved murder of JonBenet Ramsey. 

427. If you could win any competition in the world, what would it be for?

American Idol or The Voice, or one of those other crazy singing competition shows would be tremendous because I absolutely cannot sing. But as someone who enjoys the sporting world, winning a Crossfit competition would be awesome. Again, another win very unlikely, and would probably be a miracle. 

428. If you just learned that you had exactly one year to live, what would you do with your remaining time?

Travel. I would quit my job, pack my bags and my laptop and go see the rest of the world. Possibly penning a "final season" so-to-speak of Dome Pondering.

429. If you could break one current world sports record, which one would it be?

All-time Home Run record. So there would be no more controversy. 

430. If you were allowed to eat only one vegetable for the rest of your life, which one would it be?

Broccoli. Love them. And they go with plenty of meals.

Making Sense of The Bible, Politics, and Immigration

They use the Bible.
For any Christian, or any person that believes in the Good Book and trusts in Jesus for faith, for life, for eternity, it always is a point of contention, a source of struggle, and a subject that truly tears the heart apart - using the Bible to justify action. And in this case, specifically cruel and inhumane action. 
By that statement, you already know where I stand. And if you read and follow this blog, you already know where I did. Yet, after Jeff Sessions used Romans 13:1 as a means to justify the removal of immigrant children from their parents at the Southern Border, as a Christian, as someone who believes heavily in that book and in the faith of Christ, I'm left utterly appalled, angry, upset, and disappointed. 
Shockingly enough, much like what was promised in "Making America Great Again", we are seeing this country reverse into some dark times and questionable actions that reflect those specific times. Times that may have been great for any …

Sunday Sundown Rundown - 6/17/18

3 Up
1. Father's Day - Always a special day of the year, kudos to all of the men who are engaged and active fathers around the world. I had several wishes of "Happy Father's Day" today, and yes, it was weird. Hoping to officially join the club with my initiation year coming up. 
2. The Incredibles 2 - Honestly, it was was one of the movies I would have picked to end my now decade long-movie-theater-free streak. Yes folks, it's been over ten years now. I should probably put up a countdown on the site. Nonetheless, kudos to I2 for raking in over $180 Million over the weekend. And yes, this sequel is so long overdue. 
3. The World Cup - It's been absolutely incredible since the start. With many upsets and poor outings from some powerhouses, the tournament is already flipped upside down. We saw an epic Ronaldo performance, and a Messi letdown continuing that epic debate. Also, it's pretty interesting to watch those who fancy themselves "BIG" sports …

Thoughts on 2018 State of the Union Address

Heading into this State of the Union address, I strongly believed this was President Trump's opportunity to somehow clear the air and change slow the growing perspective he's been claiming as "fake news". For a guy whose strength in politics has been refuting claims, attacking others, tweeting without control, and giving informal and fiery speeches in the form of rallies, having a blank canvas to unite, to control the perspective, and to give his mission is indeed foreign. 
Last night was his chance. And in my opinion, it was the "must win" in the political spectrum, especially considering the midterm election season we are upon. 
Again, im not a "must win" kind of person, but his message tonight is just that in the political spectrum. Has to deliver. Has to. — Dome Pondering (@DomePondering) January 30, 2018
Overall, I thought the President did well. I'm being fair and just. And as a former college debater and an absolute junkie for rhetoric…
