The IF Factor: Questions Answered #221-230

221. If you could be buried anywhere, where would it be?

A really, really creepy question. Most don't even think as far ahead as death, and now I'm supposed to look past death? I guess I'll go with somewhere around the tri-state area, close enough where friends and family could visit if needed. 

222. If you could ensure one single personality trait in your children, what would you want it to be?

Easily, the ability to accept people in a diverse way. It's a hard truth to swallow, but whether because of belief, the way they were raised, or just blind ignorance, there are a lot of people who are not open to others who are unlike them. Fortunately, growing up in NYC, I was forced to realize what my mother told me since I was a child - people are people. I hope that trait of acceptance and understanding is passed on to my child.
 

223. If you could run any single company, institution, or organization in the world, which would you choose?

At this point in my career,I'd be honest and say that I am not prepared to run any single company, institution, or organization. At least I don't feel like I am. Either way, for the sake of answering the question, I will go with the NYC Parks and Recreation Department. Boy would I love to overhaul that mess.

224. If you had to select any single man-made object that best represents your personality, what would it be?

I'm not sure if man-made includes electronics or just handcrafted items. But I guess I'll go with a simple (and sort of boring answer) in saying a chair. It's reliable, loyal, supportive, rarely changes, carries a load when required, is decorative, comfortable, and is a flexible item that can be used for multiple tasks. 

225. If you could gain total memory of one year of your life so far, which year would you pick?

Senior year of college. Only because I would love to have blogged more about the various experiences, life lessons, and overall thoughts that I had. Would have been nice as well to look back on those words from that time. 

226. If you could overthrow any government in the world, which one would you replace?

Easily, North Korea. What believer in freedom, democracy, and the right to life, liberty, and the pursuit of happiness wouldn't? 

227. If you could choose any historic figure to read your eulogy, who would you want to do it?

 I guess for DP devotees, you know my first answer would obviously be the DP Page of Famer, Reverend Dr. Martin Luther King Jr. However, I'll be a little unpredictable and fun, and go with "Macho Man" Randy Savage. Not exactly overly historical in the original comprehension, but historical nonetheless. I'm sure I'd be smiling and laughing hysterically from heaven as he hits a "Ooooooh yeah! Dig it!" at the end of everymajor point in the eulogy.

228. If you could put any person in prison, who would you lock up?

I guess I'll stay with the North Korea theme - can I say Kim Jong-Un? I guess I just did.

229. If you had to name your single worst fear, what would it be?

Easily, failure. I hate to admit it, but I'm so afraid of failing, some times I take the easiest road in life and limit my risks. I know, I know...I'm working on it. 

230. If you had to describe the single worst thing a friend could do to you, what would it be?

Friends fight. Friends have disagreements. Friends have their moments of doing the other wrong. But a friend that uses you for their gain is no friend.

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.…
