Would You Rather: Questions 41-50

41. Would you rather have free Starbucks for a year or free iTunes for a year? 

Call me crazy, but I am going with free Starbucks for a year. Free ITunes sounds great, but I already have a Spotify account that I already enjoy tremendously. Plus, I live in NYC, and there is a Starbucks like every ten feet. 

42. Would you rather be a ninja or a wizard? 

Ninja! Way cooler, and way more fun. I've seen my wife watch Harry Potter. No offense, not really moved by being a wizard, unless, it's the opportunity to play pro basketball in Washington. 

43. Would you rather go deaf in one ear or only be allowed to use the internet one hour per day?

This is tough, but I am going to go with going deaf in one ear. The internet is so essential in today's world, especially in how I consume information and of course, explore one of my favorite hobbies in contributing to this little blog.

44. Would you rather only wear 80's clothes or only 80's hairstyles? 

80's hairstyles. Bad ass and eccentric. 80's clothes all of the time makes you look weird and a little off the rocker to others who see you daily. 

45. Would you rather be able to listen to any song with your mind, or be able to watch your dreams on your television?

I prefer to listen to any song in my mind. A weird mental Spotify would be fantastic. Watching my dreams on television really doesn't move me. Blah. Eh. 

46. Would you rather live in a five star prison, or the poorest country in the world? 

Give me freedom over everything. Any prison, no matter how nice, is just that, prison. 

47. Would you rather always know when someone is lying, or always get away with lying? 

Always knowing when someone is lying would be absolutely fantastic. Just utterly fantastic! Think about all of the ways you can mess with people and catch them in their lies. Or how about the opportunity to make life decisions based on knowing the truth in a situation? So yeah, guess which one I am going with? 

48. Would you rather be always overdressed or always underdressed? 

Underdressed. Wayyyyyy more comfortable, and produces and atmosphere to conform more often that being formal. 

49. Would you rather be the opposite gender for a day, or be a kid again for a day? 

Be a kid again. I'm not sure I have any desire to be a woman for a day, plus, I would love to have the responsibilities and free mindset of a kid for one day. 

50. Would you rather have the opportunity to explore all of earth, or have the opportunity to go to space? 

This is a really, really good one. I would go with exploring earth. While space is an extremely rare opportunity, exploring the entire world is something I truly enjoy, and would produce multiple experiences within that option.

Sunday Sundown Rundown - 7/23/17

3 Up
1. Boy w/Double Hand Transplant - This is an amazing story! Not only is the young man the first to receive a double hand transplant, but he has functioning mobility in both hands. Better yet - he can now swing a bat! How cool is that?! And even better, what does this mean for others in the future? So cool. 
2. Aaron Judge's Blast - Judge has been giving Yankee fans - and baseball fans - thrills all year long with the blasts he's been sending into orbit. His latest home run in Seattle, which broke STATCAST, was epic, and will surely be one that will have mythical proportions in the future. 
3. What is America To Me - I love the opinion section of the New York Times - naturally as a blogger, why wouldn't I, right? Regardless, give this one a read regarding immigration, and the real life results of an issue we think of in just politics.

Turning Thirty-Two

Today, I turn thirty-two. There is just something odd about this age - like twenty-three was, or twenty-eight was, you know, the mile markers in between the rest stops - that just doesn't carry the super significance as 21 and 30 did. Although, at this stage of life, there are many mile markers, and those celebratory rest stops are much, much fewer in between. 
Though, it wasn't too long ago I passed a big one - thirty! And if you remember, I loved becoming AND being thirty. To be honest, I enjoyed being thirty-one, and really, thirty-two already seems kick-ass. Call me crazy, my thirties have been VERY enjoyable. 
But as I turn thirty-two, there isn't much significance in the number, but truly, it's about the changes in myself. Thirty was just two years away, and I am already better than that version of myself. This year marked ten years since I've graduated from college (Things I Would tell My college Self), and I am a much better version of myself compared to t…

Page of Fame Class 2017 - New York Knicks

They're not even my favorite thing in sports (obviously, the New York Yankees and the game of baseball is), but there is no denying the impact my fandom of the New York Knicks has had me over the years, and overall, throughout the lifespan of this blog. You can search through out my tiny slice of the internet that is called Dome Pondering, and here you will find countless rants and reactions to whatever mess this team was currently in.
A franchise always in peril, with the recources to be something truly great if it had competent management (see: 2015 Page of Famer, James L. Dolan), the Knicks have always been a fascinating project to follow, an inspiration to punch the keys on, and for this basketball fan, a nightmare to have given his fandom to as a little boy. 
1973 remains the year this franchise last won an NBA Championship. And I really, really really, really, really, really believe if it were to happen, a June parade down the Canyon of Heroes for the city's game would …

Page of Fame Class 2017 - Mariano Rivera

Finally getting his call to the DP Page of Fame is the greatest closer of all-time, and yes, my favorite athlete of all-time - Mariano Rivera. 
We all choose our favorite athletes and have reasons for them. Mine are very simple. Rivera was dominant, likable,  never got in trouble, carried a talent that was indescribable. Also adding to the connection is that Rivera is a man of God, with strong ties to his faith and to humanity. For me, that made his so special in this world of sports. 
I always think about the day when I will have to pass on this appreciation for Mo to my future children and the fairy-tale-like description that may sound like I am making things up, the way elder folks are always accused of, or romanticize about. 
Rivera was a closer for our New York Yankees (of course, have to raise the kids as Yankees fans), and for much of his career, he through one-pitch. That one pitch was so strong, so dominant, all the hitters in the league could not hit it, even when they knew…
