The IF Factor: Questions Answered #431-440

431. If you had to spend one weekend alone in a single store but could remove or add nothing, which store would you pick?

The easy answer would be Walmart, right? But I'm sure everyone has been to Walmart at least once, and it isn't exactly a place you would want to stay at. I'll go with Target. Everything I need is there. I'll throw together a few futons, play some video games, and enjoy the snacks/food/produce there is. 

432. If you could referee or judge one sport as a permanent job, which would you choose?

Refereeing is not an easy gig. Not at all. But I wouldn't mind being an umpire in baseball.

433. If you could give a single piece of advice to the automobile industry, what would you tell them?

Keep it simple. Especially the American auto industry. Before the economic fallout of 2008, there was no wondering why the American auto industry was in the dumps - just look at the designs and makes of the products produced. Since then, it's been much better, especially in bringing back many of the classic muscle cars. 

434. If you had to sacrifice your own life for one thing, what would it be?

My faith - Jesus. 

435. If you could recover one thing you've lost in your lifetime, what would you wish to find?

I'm not sure I have any item per say, but there was a box containing many of my faimily's kitchen utensils marked very obviously, "Kitchen Utensils" which until this day, we have no idea where it disappeared to in a move between houses. For my parents, especially my mom, I wouldn't mind finding that box. 

436. If you could memorize one book from history in its entirety, which book would you want it to be?

The Bible. That would be quite the feat. And even if you aren't a believer, it's a big book, and even you have to admit that would be impressive. 

437. If you were given a yacht today, what would you name it?

Pondering Spirit. Ha! 

438. If you were given a racehorse, what would you name it?

Metro Tropical. Yeaaaah, I'll go with that. I've never been into horse racing so...whatever. 

439. If you had to name the best purchase you've ever made, which one would you choose?

As of right now, I would probably say car orrrrrrrr my college education, if you count that as a "purchase". 

440. If you could have been told one thing that you weren't told when you were a teenager, what would you like to have heard?

Be yourself and follow your heart. Let's be honest, the teenage years are tough years in many areas in life.

Sunday Sundown Rundown - 11/19/17

3 Up
1. Lt. Sayem Basad Pacha - No one will ever know what went through Pacha's head before he bear-hugged a suicide bomber the moment the vest was detonated. I can't even wrap my mind around the thought process. Whatever it is, this man is one thing - hero. And that's in the purest form. 
2. Kianoush Rostami - The earthquake that rocked the Iran/Iraq border was devastating. Yet, here is Rostami giving up his prized possession of an Olympic gold medal to raise money for the relief effort. Much respect. 
3. WWE War Games - In a more light-hearted "Up" this week (we need that from time-to-time, no?), the WWE's Survivor Series weekend was just fantastic. But man, so much props to everyone who put work into Saturday's NXT show, as well as the return of War Games. That match was so awesome. 
3 Down
1. Rob Moore - All I will say is this - it's bad when even something such as sexual assault is now becoming a topic and a driving force for identity politics. Re…
