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.

4:44 - Jay-Z Pulls Me Back

I admit it. At one point, this Brooklyn-born-and-raised guy who narrated his growth to the tunes of one Jay-Z, believed that those days were gone. Over the last two or three albums, I sort of gave up on Jay-z being that voice that I can identify with. That voice that always speaks and holds truth to what I can relate to. Upon growing into a possible billionaire, and rapping about having money and whatever it was, I was one of those fans who decided, you know, will just listen to the hits. 
Partly, I was disappointed. He went from reaching in and representing the inner city heart of anyone who understood the words and sounds beyond just the catchy hooks and killer beats of what mainstream (and white) America heard.

Sunday Sundown Rundown - 7/23/17

3 Up
1. Boy w/Double Hand Transplant - This is an amazing story! Not only is the young man the first to receive a double hand transplant, but he has functioning mobility in both hands. Better yet - he can now swing a bat! How cool is that?! And even better, what does this mean for others in the future? So cool. 
2. Aaron Judge's Blast - Judge has been giving Yankee fans - and baseball fans - thrills all year long with the blasts he's been sending into orbit. His latest home run in Seattle, which broke STATCAST, was epic, and will surely be one that will have mythical proportions in the future. 
3. What is America To Me - I love the opinion section of the New York Times - naturally as a blogger, why wouldn't I, right? Regardless, give this one a read regarding immigration, and the real life results of an issue we think of in just politics.

Dope Sports Threads - 2017 MLB All-Star Break

You knew I had to post on everything aesthetic during the MLB All-Star Break festivities. I just had to! Yes, I am a nerd for this stuff - always have been, always will be. And unlike some baseball fans, the All-Star Break is still must-see for me. I enjoy the Home Run Derby. I enjoy the All-Star Game. I appreciate seeing the guys enjoy the game that I love as well.

I'll leave my continued feelings (and rants) for fans who continue to push back against the progression of the game of baseball. For now, I'll just leave it be. I'm sure the rest of this post may drive them nuts too. Oh well. Here are some things that caught my eye this week:

Turning Thirty-Two

Today, I turn thirty-two. There is just something odd about this age - like twenty-three was, or twenty-eight was, you know, the mile markers in between the rest stops - that just doesn't carry the super significance as 21 and 30 did. Although, at this stage of life, there are many mile markers, and those celebratory rest stops are much, much fewer in between. 
Though, it wasn't too long ago I passed a big one - thirty! And if you remember, I loved becoming AND being thirty. To be honest, I enjoyed being thirty-one, and really, thirty-two already seems kick-ass. Call me crazy, my thirties have been VERY enjoyable. 
But as I turn thirty-two, there isn't much significance in the number, but truly, it's about the changes in myself. Thirty was just two years away, and I am already better than that version of myself. This year marked ten years since I've graduated from college (Things I Would tell My college Self), and I am a much better version of myself compared to t…
