The IF Factor: Questions Answered #191-200

191. If you had to name one advantage daughters have over sons, what would you say it is?

Easy. Emotion and sympathy. No one feels bad for a son struggling or going through a rough time. However, all a daughter has to do is tear up a bit, and the world is theirs. 

192. If you were to confess to how many people you have honestly been in love with, what would you say?

1 person. My wife. 

However, I'd place my Playstation 2 there to. Lots of hours of my life has been logged on it, especially for MVP Baseball 2005.

193. If you had to give the same gift to everyone you know next Christmas, what would it be?

Tough one. I hate doing the whole Christmas gift giving thing, because I'm a simple guy who doesn't need much, and I absolutely hate shopping. So I'll go with the gift of a good book. Maybe one of my favorites such as Friday Night Lights, Black Boy, or the Autobiography of Reverend Dr. Martin Luther King Jr. 

194. If you could stop overusing one word in your vocabulary, which word would it be?

The word "garbage" to describe a situation, result, or occurrence I do not agree with. I've done this since middle school. In fact, several classmates referenced it in my yearbook. I should stop, but I just can't. This habit is such garbage. 

195. If you had to name the one personality trait that you have tried the hardest to change in yourself, what would you say?

I'm too laid back. There are times I need to be more aggressive. I recently finished the Reverend Dr. Martin Luther King's autobiography, and one thing he stated is that "there comes a time when you understand that you will have to stand up for yourself, because no one else can." Sometimes I need to be aggressive and take charge according to my own convictions.

196. If you could go back for one minute to the Garden of Eden and give Adam some advice, what would you say?

"Be a man. Stand up and say no to Eve. The perfection of humanity rides on it!"

Just imagine what joy the earth would be if not for that. Ugh...

196. If you could have said one thing to Harry Truman the day before he decided to drop the atomic bomb, what would you have said?

"I hope you are able to sleep at night after this."

197. If you had the opportunity to change one thing about the life of your mother and father, what would it be?

That they would have been able to go to college. Because of the circumstances of migration, taking care of younger siblings, and slight poverty, my parents weren't able to go to college and further their education. Nonetheless, they've done pretty awesome for themselves.

198. If you had to describe the silliest thing people do in general, what would you say?

A person who calls someone else using a cell phone, asks them where they are, and then replies by telling them where they are to conclude the opener to a pointless call. It goes as such:

Person A: Hey! It's me, person B! Where are you?

Person B: Here, chillin, watching the game. What are you up to?

Person A: Just got on the bus and heading home.

Person B: Ahhhh

At this point, Person A will attempt to fine something to keep the conversation going and from making it obvious that this call was utterly pointless. 

What did we do before cell phones? 

199. If you could guarantee one thing about your next trip, what would it be?

There is a beach. What's a vacation without a beach?

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.…
