Would You Rather: Questions 51-60

51. Would you rather get rid of all the bad drivers on the road, or never have to wait in line at stores and restaurants? 

I live in New York City, so fewer bad drivers, the better. I'm not all that concerned about having to wait in line at stores and restaurants. Quite frankly, I shop a ton online, and I frequent many mom and pop restaurants here in the city that I am pretty familiar when they are available. Oh, and I take advantage of making reservations. 

52. Would you rather be a ninja, or a pirate?

If it's a Pittsburgh Pirate, then sure, sign me up. If it's the Jack Sparrow version, then nah, I'll pass. Being a ninja is wayyyyy cooler. 

53. Would you be able to mimic any form or style of dance just by watching it, or be able to match a person's vocal range just by listening to their voice?

Voice! Singing equals the bright lights and the big bucks. I don't really have any interest in dancing a specific way. I like making stuff up as I get down. There is an interesting freedom and improv that I enjoy regarding dancing. 

54. Would you rather be stuck in a broken elevator for five hours, or stuck on a broken ski lift for five hours? 

I want to say an elevator because it seems safe, warm, and pretty controlled, but I am going to go with ski lift. Especially, if it's with someone I enjoy being with. The fresh air and the view is the deciding factor for me. 

55. Liberty, but no justice, but justice, but no liberty? 

Liberty, but no justice. After all, isn't that what we currently live in. And yeah, I went there. 

56. Would you rather have huge snow days, or days of rain? 

Ugh, not a fan of snow at all. Give me days of rain which are welcoming. Even, in my opinion, sometimes reflective. After all, who doesn't stare outside their window on a rainy day?

57. Would you rather work more hours per day, but less day, or work less hours per day, but more days?

More hours per day, but less days. Wouldn't be ideal for what I do for a living, but that option would be awesome all around. 

58. Make one new law of your choice, or get rid of any one law of your choice? 

Make one new law of my choice. I prefer to be positive to create new opportunities and look to repeal things. 

59. Would you rather have unlimited access to movies, or unlimited access to games? 

Oh, just give me the unlimited access to movies. That I would definitely enjoy. I only play a very limited supply of video games anyway. 

60. Would you rather have a milkshake bar in your house, or a smoothie bar? 

Can I go with a protein shake bar? Well, I guess that counts as a smoothie bar, right? No? Regardless, the smoothies seem like the healthy option. Frequent milkshakes sounds like a bad idea.

Dope Sports Threads - MLB Player's Weekend Gear

I love everything about MLB Player's Weekend. From the moment it was rumored way back over the winter, I have been anticipating the announcements of what I feel is baseball finally - FINALLY - looking to modernize itself. Well, at least just a bit. Baby steps.

While I love MLB Uniforms and the tradition that comes with them, I do get annoyed with the over-abundance and wacky uniforms we see from the NBA. With that said, I like the idea of keeping this to one weekend. Where it becomes sort of a spectacle. And it is thus far.

Ultimately, I like that players are getting more say so in changing the antequated mentality that baseball currently has here in the States. Regardless, I'm sure most have seen the names, the uniforms and the gear. Here are my thoughts on the ones that caught my eye:

Unpacking Thoughts on Charlottesville

This weekend has been exhausting. Despite the constant systemic injustice that is the United States of America, it's a moment like this weekend that is delivered and must be unpacked and discussed carefully in the pursuit of social justice - justice that is long deserved. 
There is plenty wrapped up in everything that is Charlottesville, Virigina. This is deep, spans back to the beginning of this nation, and is a result of current times as well. 
I'm still decompressing it all. Here are a few quick thoughts as I too wrap my mind, my emotions, and my intellect and rationale around it:

Sunday Sundown Rundown - 8/13/17

3 Up
1. Los Angeles Dodgers - In a rough week where the real world just crushes us, the dominance of the Dodgers is one that leaves us in awe, and can take us out into something great for a few minutes. 
2. Derek Jeter The Owner - Is there anything that Derek Jeter loses at? The Captain is now part owner of the Miami Marlins, and get this - will be the first owner and CEO of color within MLB. That's HUGE. 
3. Married at 98 - These two are getting married at 98 (He's 94). How about they both workout at the gym twice-a-week, and met there. So cool in so many ways. Good for them! 
3 Down
1. Charlottesville - So many layers to this story. Hate. History. The ridiculous response from our President. And the apparent shock some in this country have that people are out there who still have this ideology. Point blank, this was terrorism. 
2. Trump and North Korea - Just before Charlottesville, Trump talked tough for absolutely no reason in a back-and-forth that unfortunately effects hund…

Pondering Picture #81

An establishment cannot uphold systemic injustice, and attempt to condemn it, simultaneously.

My prayers (and of course my thoughts...so many thoughts) are with Charlottesville, Virgina, and the many people of color who have endured through these scenes and images over the course of history.
