The IF Factor: Questions Answered: #181-190

181. If you could change one thing about your typical day, what would it be?

The commute home. It's usually longer on the train because of the rush hour traffic, and of course, the packed subways. I would pick a private car service with no traffic. That would really help the events of my typical day. 

182. If you discovered a Shakespeare manuscript that no one else had ever seen, what would you do with it?

Get it appraised, valued, and sell it off to the highest bidder. I wouldn't know where to even begin if I tried to produce a theater attraction.

183. If you could be right behind any single person in line at the Gates of Heaven, who would you choose?

My wife. 

184. If you could enact one law related to royal marriages, what would it say?

The existing member of the royal family must live in the borough of Queens, New York for three months similar to "Akeem" and "Semi" from Coming to America. A little bit of living like normal people would give them some real perspective on life. 

185. If you were to name the most clear proof that evil exists in the world, what would you say?

Just pull up the site of your favorite news source, or turn on the nightly news. You don't have to look very far to find evil.

186. If you could drink only one type of alcoholic drink for the rest of your life, what would you choose?

Beer. Blue Moon to be exact. 

187. If you had to fight a duel tomorrow at dawn, and you could determine the type of weapons you both would use, what would they be?

Tables. All my duels would be table matches. 

188. If you could have the vocabulary of any one person, who would you pick?

Walt "Clyde" Frazier. How cool would it be to use words no one has ever heard off, and rhyme them with other rarely used words to describe a common action. Clyde is the best. 

189. If you had to leave everything you own to your alma mater, but you could specify what it would be used for, what would you request?

Well for me, at Cazenovia, I would like a full building dedicated to computers and work spaces. I guess a new library of some sorts that is open 24 hours for the students on campus. 

190. If you were to pick the one thing that always makes you smile, what would it be?

My wife's quirky smile.

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.…
