The IF Factor: Questions Answered #241-250

241. If you could have your spouse say one thing about you to friends, what would you want him or her to say?

"He's just awesome."

242. If you spoke English with a foreign accent, which would you want it to be?

Oh this might be the easiest question of them all...a British accent.

243. If you could guarantee the happiness of any single person in the world because they most deserve it, who would it be?

I have way too many friends who are single, it could be any one of them.

244. If you could learn the total number of hours you have spent in your life doing one thing, what would it be?

Playing MVP Baseball 2005 for the Playstation 2. I literally had to disconnect my PS2 so I would not play it anymore. Still the best video game I've ever played. Just never gets old. And of course, is insanely addicting. 

245. If you had to name the person you know with the best attitude regarding money, who would it be?

My wife. I always thought I was either frugal, or just a simple person when it came to spending habits. My wife takes saving to another step with her coupons, sales, deals, and of course, the occasional e-mail to management when she is unhappy with a service or a product. She always gets her money's worth. 

246. If you could have only one magazine subscription for life, which would you pick?

Men's Health Magazine. 

247. If you had to choose the most necessary thing you do each day, what would say it was?

The five minute period between checking my clock and eventually getting up for the day. Gathering myself with a quick thought process and prayer is always necessary. 

248. If you were to decide on a new punishment for convicted murderers, aside from life imprisonment or the death penalty, what would it be?

The ability for the victim's immediate family and loved ones to cane the suspect in public. Sadistic and harsh? Sure. But so was the crime. Some folks aren't afraid of death and jail. But embarrassment and suffering just might do the trick. 

249. If you could have one extra hour each day to do only one thing, what would you do in that hour?

Blog. Or...maybe sleep because everything else eats up the hours in my day. 

250. If the laziest person you know had to do one thing each day for the rest of their life, what would they do?

Volunteer at after-school programs, YMCAs, or other youth based programs. If you're not going to work, at least help give back to the communities or enrich the lives of others. Just don't be a total waste of a mind.

Dear Son, Prior Generation

--22 Days Old---

Dear Son,

It's been three weeks since you entered this world, and ever since then, you've given us joy, smiles, love, countless Google searches, plenty of shoulder shrug I-give-up moments, countless "spit-up" shower/laundry drills (we have this down now - it's such a tight operation), a lifetime subscription to sleep deficiency and an immediate annoyance to parenting advice from those who wish to give it unsolicited.

But you know what, between all the unknowns, the shrugs, and the fatigue, you flash a moments smile, and we're back in the game. And if we capture it on our phones, it's like a bases loaded, 3 RBI, triple.

Yet, as the days peel off the calendar board, and sunrises and sunsets aren't exactly lining up mentally in our place in comparison to earth's time continuum, this third week of your existence brought you visitors - your first! - in the likes of your grandparents.

By now, you probably know you are lucky and that yo…

The IF Factor: Questions Answered #81-90

81. If you could enact one law in your country that does not currently exist, what would it be?

There would actually be quite a few. However, I would go with gun control. Nothing too elaborate, but the type of control that requires screening and effective security of allowing firearm usage in this country. 
82. If you could own only one thing for the rest of your life, what would you choose?
I would probably choose a good pair of pants. Weird? Yes, most definitely. But a good pair of pants sets the tone, and for a big and tall guy like myself, dictates the comfort for the day. As hard as pants are to find for us big guys, I'd like to own one pair, thus renting or borrowing everything else. If you happen to be one of those folks that has your perfect pants size in every store, you most likely won't understand this.

Sunday Sundown Rundown - 7/8/18

3 Up

1. Independence Day - So, it wasn't on a weekend. And it yes, if you look passed the shady propaganda of immense filtered propaganda, there is some real ish there. However, despite it's imperfection, oppression, and disregard for truth, America is great. Happy Birthday to a special nation!

2. Boys Rescue in Thailand - As of this post, only four of the thirteen boys have been saved. However, the rescue missions have captured the world in the lengthy and tremendously daring attempts to save these boys. The quest will continue well into next week.

3. Golden State Warriors - I wrote about it this past week (Applaud the Golden State Warriors), but these dudes just added another - ANOTHER - all-star! As mentioned, what the Warriors are doing in the modern era of sports, and salary caps, and of course, egos, is absolutely tremendous.

Sunday Sundown Rundown - 7/15/18

3 Up

1. Thailand Boys Rescued - This story was captivating, and even becomes downright addictively intriguing when you really get into the research methods used to save these boys and their coaches. And let us not forget some of the fatalities that occurred to get this done as well.

2. World Cup - How absolutely phenomenal was this event? I'm already sad to see it go. With a newborn in tow for myself, I watched so much of it, and it all, was so, so, so good. Best in my lifetime, for sure. Congratulations to France - albeit via immigrants of African nations. But that's a different message for another post on immigration hypocrisy.

3. Isner vs. Anderson - 6 Hours and 36 Minutes. Just as great as the World Cup has been, Wimbledon was just as fantastic. Isner and Anderson provided an absolute classic.

1. Papa John - This dude is an absolute clown. This story is such a reminder of how these scenarios only result in action due to public backlash. And of course, how recording, …
