Would You Rather: Questions 81-90

81. Would you rather be 4'5" or 7'7"?

I would prefer to be 7'7". On this weird spectrum, I'm already used to being taller than the average person. I can deal with the extreme height. It'll be nice to play some pick up basketball. 

82. Would you rather be tall and fat, or short and well built?

Tall and fat. I can always lose the weight. Plus, short and jacked dudes often have to fight the stigma of being jerks on first appearance. 

83. Would you rather be poor and work at a job you love, or rich and a job you hate?

Poor and work at a job you love. Take it from someone who has their dream job, the sense of purpose and peace of mind is indeed worth much. 


84. Would you rather go through life unable to answer any questions, or unable to ask any questions?

I would hate to not be able to ask any questions. After all, that is literally what I do everyday. Life doesn't always give us the answers, and sometimes, there are no answers. But for me, pondering these mysteries are what make this race called life so wonderful. Sounds cheesy, but eh, sue me. 

85. Would you rather be only able to whisper or shout everything you speak?

Whisper. I really don't like attention. And honestly, we all know that one person who doesn't have volume control over their voice. No one likes that person. Especially, in public places. 

86. Would you rather go without the internet or without your car for a month?

I live in New York City. While I love my car. I can get by without a car for a month. Now the internet, probably not. Can anyone in today's world? 

Weird, though - this question now has me thinking - is the internet more valuable to us that having access to a car? Holy crap. Times sure have changed. 

87. Would you rather sit all day or stand all day?

Stand all day. I despise sitting all day. Again, It's why I love my job. I don't like office days though - blah. 

88. Would you rather go to jail for one year, or live in your car for one year?

I've read way too many books on prison, and memoirs of prisoners. NO THANK YOU on any prison option. I'll live in my car. 

89. Would you rather be stuck in a state-of-the-art facility with someone you hate, or stuck in your own house alone?

Stuck in my house alone. No facility is worth the annoyance to come with that situation. 

90. Would you rather be a genius in a world of morons, or a moron in a world of geniuses?

Wow. This is a REALLY good question. I'm seriously torn. Talk about a philosophical tug-of-war here. I am going to go with a genius in a world of morons. They won't know you're a genius though, that's the tragedy.

Sunday Sundown Rundown - 9/17/17

3 Up
1. JJ Wyatt - Not only has the man raised over $37M for Hurricane Harvey relief, but unlike many of the various charities we have become accustomed to, Wyatt is very transparent in how he will spend the money, and what he plans to do. Still in such awe of this. 
2. Tim Duncan - In the same spectrum as Wyatt is one of my favorite athletes, Tim Duncan. A native from the US Virgin Islands, Tim Duncan has been instrumental in Hurricane Irma relief by donating 20,000 pounds of food to the area. Such awesome stories in the midst of all these Natural disasters. The power of the human spirit is so great. 
3. Cleveland Indians - 22 Baseball games in a row. The Indians record winning-streak came to an end  this week, but it is damn impressive. Are they NOT the choice to make it back to the World Series from the American League? 
3 Down
1. London Attacks - SMH on these terrorists attacks. My heart goes out to those affected by more senselessness in the world. 
2. White House on Jemele Hill -…

Dope Sports Threads - Nike NBA Uniforms

When Nike was announced as the new provider of the NBA uniforms, formerly designed by Adidas, I was very intrigued on what the super creative company would do. The team of Adidas and the NBA always felt a little...well, off. Nothing wrong with either brand, they just don't seem like a good fit for one another. Hence, we got jerseys with sleeves and such under their term. 
Go back to soccer, Adidas. It's where you shine. 
Enter, Nike. And this is the perfect fit for the NBA. And thus far, the designs, names of uniforms, and feel for the upcoming aesthetics within the NBA is awesome. Again, Nike just doing Nike things. 
With the the new uniforms, as always, here are a few notes on the latest:

Goodbye Melo

I've wanted this for the Knicks, and today I got it.

Carmelo Anthony is no longer a New York Knick heading into the 17-18 NBA Season.

No, I don't dislike Melo. In fact, if you go through previous posts you'll know, I find Melo to be a very, very good player. However, I just thought it was time for the Knicks to move past this era, and truly - like, really - rebuild.

Most importantly, build around Kristaps Porzingis.

But, again, for me, I've always - ALWAYS - believed that Carmelo Anthony needed to be the #2 (or #3) guy on a team. Watching him night in and night out as a Knick, he just never seemed to be the type of guy who lifts those around him. Again, he's a tremendous player but the track record is there. I don't buy into the "he's never had much around him" argument.

Have you seen the Knicks roster in comparison to the rest of the Eastern Conference the last few years?

Dome Pondering - 2012 Year in Review

Mic check. One, two, three. Mic check. Okay, so we're on, and hey, we're still alive! Stupid Mayans. Welcome to the DP's signature post of the year, the Year in Review. Each year, as we did last (Dome Pondering Year in Review - 2011), we take a look back at the calendar year and prepare for the next one ahead. With a packed and eventful 2012, there is much to delve into and plenty to prepare for in 2013. 
Before we do, I'd like to simply thank all of the DP devotees out there for your continued support and interest in this little blog called Dome Pondering. While it seems I've come to say the same thing every time at this part of the year, it bears repeating that this site full of my thoughts and words has grown tremendously over the last three years because of you. It seems the older I become and the less time I have, the more I am able to punch the keys. I don't get it either, and I'm not even going to try to figure it out. Nonetheless, thank you once ag…
