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.

Defending the NFL - I Just Don't Get It

Yes, I don't watch football. Well, not anymore. 
I've been completey sober for two years, not counting that one hiccup in watching the Super Bowl in February. 
So yeah, I'm not into football. I'm not particularly fond of the sport's connection to CTE issues, it's blatant obstruction or disregard for science expressing it's connection to football, nor its handling of various matters over the years. And that's even before Colin Kaepernick decided to shake the core of our nation's reality my simply dropping to a knee. 
I actually don't even care for the sport, really. The NFL is rather gross in all that it is, and has been for a long time. And for those touting college football and it's culture - excuse me. I was born, raised, and currently live in the North East. I have friends and colleagues in the South and across the country who revel in those sagas that exist only for and around Saturdays in the Fall. But, not even college football intere…

Sunday Sundown Rundown - 12/10/17

3 Up
1. Brian Cashman - Yes, I was one of those crazies that followed the breaking story of Stanton to the Yankees on Friday night into Saturday morning - until 4:00am to be exact. I still can't believe it's real. More so, can we give credit to Brian Cashman, who continues to prove doubters wrong in his wheeling and dealing? The rebuilding was one year, and well, that included being one win from the World Series. Just Crazy. 
2. Get Out - I finally got around to watching the Jordan Peele film, and it's absolutely amazing. So thought provoking in so many ways. A great film, and ironically, one that has me thinking about visiting the in-laws in a week or so. Just kidding...sort of. 
3. Supergirl - This girl is 16 and already can squat way more than I could. Such a crazy story, but an inspirational one. Definitely give it a read. 
3 Down
1. Roy Moore - "I think it was great at the time when families were united — even though we had slavery..." SMH. Yet, we still hear…

Dome Pondering Movie Review: Get Out (2017)

What is it about?
A Young black men spends the weekend at his white girlfriend's parent's house. What happens next gives way to a thriller, but more so, a microcosm of race relations in society. 
Who is in it?
Allison Williams - Rose Armitage
Daniel Kaluuya - Chris Washington

Pro Wrestling's Interesting Place in 2017

For me, pro wrestling is an interesting place. And it got here in 2017. 
For the pro wrestling fan, there are plenty of current options. We're not talking the kind of options that was once out there on a national level (ala WCW and ECW), but the kind we now have in various indie operations, the many regions that are currently on fire (UK Scene), and yes, those that you can simply log onto YouTube, or some other streaming service to find content of.
The pro wrestling fan doesn't have to have cable anymore. Actually, there isn't much of a need for cable as is. And quite frankly, the pro wrestling fan probably doesn't even need national wrestling companies as well.
Just like the pro wrestling fan, I too find myself in this peculiar area on the spectrum seeking and exploring various organizations, offerings, and presentations of the art form that is available. Much like I did in the past, I'm open to seeing what's out there, and more importantly, what is entertain…
