The IF Factor: Questions Answered #461-470

461. If you could leave only one existing book for the world to have five hundred years from now, which book would you leave?

My obvious answer would be the Bible. Timeless stuff. However, I'm pretty confident in the Bible being around 500 years from now. I guess I will go with either Friday Night Lights by H.G. Bissinger or The End of Racism by Dinesh D'Souza. 

462. If you just learned that tomorrow morning you were to be permanently exiled from your country and could take three things with you, what would they be?

Wow. Harsh. I guess my wife. My laptop. And my passport? 

463. If you could start a new rock band, what would you name it?

Half Game Back. I don't know, whatever it is, I'm sure it would be around sports. 

464. If you could have a servant come to your house everyday for one hour, what would you have them do?

Cook. I like to cook, but only once in a while. Having a cook for the daily grind would be awesome. I'll take care of the cleaning and washing, and everything else still. Coming home to meals either prepared or just needed to be warmed up would be amazing. 

465. If you were to have your portrait painted, what would you choose as the setting?

The Beach. Sitting or standing on the beach, relaxing. Probably pondering. 

466. If you could, in retrospect, thank one teacher you had in school for what they taught you, who would it be, and what would you thank them for?

A professor in college for giving me the confidence that I needed for my career, and for challenging me and thus bringing out abilities, talents, and most of all, making me realize the unique qualities that I possess. And of course, to embrace those qualities.

467. If you had to pick the worst television series ever made, what would win?

Honestly, anything that is reality television. I don't mean the good ones like Amazing Race or Cops. I'm talking the fake reality shows like Real Housewives and such. 

Since I have to pick one, I'll go with Jersey Shore. I still have zero idea why that became popular. 

468. If you could make a film from any book never produced as a film, what book would you pick?

Seeing as I'm currently reading it as of this writing, "Native Son" by Richard Wright. The story would make for a great film, especially if done and directed correctly. 

469. If you could change one thing to make life easier for your children, what would you do?

Anything? Does remove ignorance count? If we're being rather realistic, I would say changing the outlook on life prospectus for them. Obviously, providing opportunities for them that I didn't have or take.

470. If you could achieve absolute success in only one area of your life, what would you want it to be?

Faith. Everything else falls into place afterwards.

Dome Pondering Export - "TNA's Biggest Problem Is..."

After ten years of importing materials, words, pictures, and videos from other sites her for your viewing and for archiving, I never thought I'd get to the point where I'd be EXPORTING material out to other sites. Yes, the DP continues to grow, and yours truly had the kind opportunity to contribute a guest column to an awesome Pro Wrestling blog with a very large audience. The piece has since been very well received, and I hope to have the opportunity to do so in the future, and maybe even other sites and avenues as well. 
You can read the column here on the TNAsylum website (special thanks to them as well for posting), or the entire text below:

Sunday Sundown Rundown - 10/15/17

3 Up
1. Hollywood Victims - Much props to the many men and women who have taken the step in telling their story about sexual assault and being the victim of displays of power for sexual gain within Hollywood. It's tough, especially in such an unforgiving business like show business, but it takes guts to tell the truth - much respect to you all who did so.
2. Joe Girardi - Have you ever seen a more brutally honest manager or head coach during a playoff stretch? Girardi has been letting his soul bare on mistakes, feelings, lineups, results, decisions, his family, his time in New York, and anything and everything else. I have a feeling Girardi is walking away, after this season, and if he is, I'm glad he's doing it by just being him. 
3. Eminem - I've seen some new school fans insult Eminem and downplaying his ability. I'm still a fan. After all, no one - NO ONE - captures anger in their music like Em. No one. Still so captivating. And yes, his freestyle of President …

Who is in it? 

Gal Gadot - Diana
Chris Pine - Steve Trevor

Damn, I Love This Team

Damn. I love this team. 
I don't know what it is, or what spurred this immediate attachment in Spring Training, but I just do. Maybe it was the idea of hope and all of the wonders and excitement it brings. You know, when your squad finally ditches the old expensive brigade and gives the keys to the prospects we've been hearing about. 
Maybe that was it. 
Or, maybe it was the excitement produced by Gary Sanchez just the year before. And the near-miss of the playoffs the team teased the year prior. 
Or...maybe it was just the idea of dancing around the word "rebuilding" and having no (not low) expectations for the 2017 season. Quite frankly, we were playing with house cards, and that's a fun position to be in as a fan. 
Of course, Judge happened (Sooooooo much fun). And it happened 52 times - really 53 if we count that one home run that didn't get counted and was ruled a triple. But whose counting? 
And one of my favorites in David Robertson returned in pinstr…
