The IF Factor: Questions Answered #251-260

251. If you were to invent an award to give to one commercial company, which one would you award, and for what? 

As of this moment, I would give an "Employee Empowerment" award to Google. No not because they host this very blog, but because of how they treat and take care of their employees. I've had the opportunity in my career to work with those who are employed by Google and all of the rumors and hearsay is true - they do have fun and are super productive! Kudos to Google on finding the balance of employee happiness, innovation, and productivity.

252. If you could resolve any single dispute, anywhere in the world, what would you solve?

I would solve race relations here in America. Since the slave trade, our country has been struggling to see one another beyond the color of our skin and the different ways we look.


 253. If you could be a contestant on any game show, which would you like to be on?

Easy. Jeopardy. DP devotees would know, I've been a huge Jeopardy fan since I was eight. Yeah, I know, it's the nerd in me. 
254. If you could read the mind of anyone you know, who would it be?

My wife. It would make things a lot easier. I'm sure all married men echo my answer as well. 
255. If you could read the mind of someone famous, who would it be?

Lady Gaga. Amanda Bynes. Dennis Rodman. Kanye West. Pick any one of the four. I would just love to know what runs through their minds before they do the things that, you know, that only they do.
256. If you could dance any one dance perfectly, which dance would you choose?

Could someone teach me to Dougie? Just kidding. Break dancing. Just because its cool. Plus, you either seem like the "cool" guy at the party, or simply just the random guy break dancing to slow music. Either way, it's a win. 
257. If you could be the editor of any single magazine, what publication would you pick?

Men's Health Magazine. 
258. If you were elected leader of the United States tomorrow, what would be your first act?

Reform Education. Isn't it funny how this topic is always on the lips of every politician come election season, yet you never hear it in the years between. 
259. If you could eliminate one thing you do each day in the bathroom so that you never had to do it again, what would it be?

Clean the bathtub/shower is my immediate answer. However, because I don't do that everyday, I'll have to find something else. And if you do, then you're just sick.

I would go with flossing. It's annoying to stand there and go through every tooth, but it has to get done. Would be nice to simply have my teeth magically flossed before bed. 
260. If you could only hear one voice that you are familiar with for the rest of your life from the mouth of all people, whose would it be? 

 Either Bob Sheppard or Bruce Buffer. DP devotees knew the second was coming. I'll go with Sheppard, for the sole reason that Buffer's constant energy would tire me out.

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:

Sunday Sundown Rundown - 10/15/17

3 Up
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 Movie Review: Wonder Woman (2017)

What is it about?

When a pilot crashes into her world, Diana, an Amazonian Warrior, leaves home to help fight a war and fulfill her true destiny. 
Who is in it? 

Gal Gadot - Diana
Chris Pine - Steve Trevor

Damn, I Love This Team

Damn. I love this team. 
I don't know what it is, or what spurred this immediate attachment in Spring Training, but I just do. Maybe it was the idea of hope and all of the wonders and excitement it brings. You know, when your squad finally ditches the old expensive brigade and gives the keys to the prospects we've been hearing about. 
Maybe that was it. 
Or, maybe it was the excitement produced by Gary Sanchez just the year before. And the near-miss of the playoffs the team teased the year prior. 
Or...maybe it was just the idea of dancing around the word "rebuilding" and having no (not low) expectations for the 2017 season. Quite frankly, we were playing with house cards, and that's a fun position to be in as a fan. 
Of course, Judge happened (Sooooooo much fun). And it happened 52 times - really 53 if we count that one home run that didn't get counted and was ruled a triple. But whose counting? 
And one of my favorites in David Robertson returned in pinstr…
