The IF Factor: Questions Answered #151-160

151. If you could choose any three songs to compile on a disc to wake up (slowly) to every morning, what would they be, and in what order? 

Since I'm a terrible morning person, I'd go with:

1. "Break Stuff" by Limp Bizkit

2. "The Hey Song Part 2 (Instrumental)" - Gary Glitter

3. "I Get the Job Done" by Big Daddy Kane

152. If you could have witnessed the childhood of someone famous, whose would it be?

I would probably choose Simon Cowell. I can just imagine how much of a jerk he was to little kids as he insulted them with that snarky British accent of his. Would make for some entertaining times.

153. If you could keep only keep one book you currently own, which would you choose?

The Bible.

154. If you could have known someone as a child that you now know, who would it be?

There are a couple of friends and former co-workers who would be interesting to know, but I'd have to go with my wife. 

155. If one aspect of your life functioned perfectly forevermore, what would you pick?

My dedication and/or obedience to my faith. If that was perfect, wouldn't everything else in my life simply fall in line? 

156. If you could eliminate one thing other people’s children do, what would it be?

Public display of rudeness, showing no manners, or complete lack of respect for others. We've all dealt with it, nothing worse than a child who is not disciplined at home, who takes his/her antics on the road as well. 

157. If you could give hair back to any balding person you know, who would you pick?

Ha! Myself! 

158. If you had to name the one thing that really makes your day, what would it be? 

My wife's smile, if I'm lucky, her laugh. 

159. If you could change one thing about your country’s history, what would you alter?

Slavery/Racism. Imagine if that never happened, how different things would be in this nation. We've spent the last 100 years trying to mend fences, and there is still plenty of work to be done. 

160. If you had to eliminate one emotion from your life, which would it be?

Frustration. What's that phrase? Keep calm, and carry on. I like that a lot.

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 …

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:

1. Heroes in Las Vegas - Among the heartbreak in Las Vegas are the many heroes who helped shield and save lives during the gun fire, as well as the many in hospitals who did some serious work in aiding the hundreds who flooded the hospitals in the area. Please, please, please be sure to read a story or two of the many who saved so many lives on that horrific night. 
2. Jimmy Kimmel - Kudos to the Kimmel on his opening monologue following the Las Vegas terrorist attack (let's call it what it is). In fact, many of the late show hosts delivered rhetoric that the talking heads on 24 hour networks couldn't, and in many ways, were the words reflective of so many. 
3. MLB Playoffs - Man oh man. How great have the MLB Playoffs been? I've been a nervous wreck with every moment of my New York Yankees. I still stand by it - best playoffs in sports.

1. Las Vegas Shooting Terrorist Attack - Shake. My. Head. Just unbelievable. 
2. Cam Newton - The comment was so unnecessary.…
