The IF Factor: Questions Answered #21-30

21. If you had to select the one thing in life you feel the most guilty about, what would it be? 

I think it would be the standard of living we have all become used to enjoying here in the United States. We enjoy running water at the whim of a faucet, indoor plumbing with our toilets, plenty of options for food, and technology that is the essence of luxury. It's a rather guilty feeling I have when I think about other countries and the problems and hardships others have within their lives when it comes to these basic essentials we take for granted. How can you not feel guilty when you see children with no shoes or clothes struggling to simply survive, and we complain about things such as dropped calls or having no service on our cell phones? 

22. If you could rid the earth of one thing, what would it be? 

Selfishness. The world could use some more people that care about more things other than themselves.

23. If you were to close down any charity, which one would you pick? 

There are too many charities out there to really pick one. Especially after the last question of hoping more people would be selfless. However, if I had to pick one, I would go with one of those save the world or whales charities that really does nothing but wastes money.

24. If you could have overheard any specific conversation between any two people, which would it be? 

The conversation between President Obama and the leader of Navy Seals Six in the mission to capture/kill Osama Bin Laden. That would make for an interesting listen.

25. If you could have the hair of any Hollywood celebrity, whose would you want? 

Well, honestly, I simply wish I had hair! Why not go with the hair of David Beckham who is known for his many hairstyles, and the ladies loving all of them. Hey, why not?

26. If you had to describe the most memorable night of your life, what would you say?

My wedding reception.

27. If you would have the power to hypnotize anyone for the day, who would you pick and what would you have them do? 

I would pick OJ Simpson, and have him tell the truth on national television. Even though, you know, we all already know...

28. If you had to name the best album cover ever, which would it be? 

I would have to go with Pink Floyd's, The Dark Side of the Moon. The light, prism, and rainbow is one of the most iconic album covers to the point where it is synonymous with the band. Heck, there are shirts with the same graphic which have been become quite the fashionable look.

29. If you had to choose the one thing that gives you the most comfort, what would you say?

Faith. No doubt or question about it. What else really is there to have comfort in? This world is crazy and too unpredictable.

30. If you could have witnessed one event from your family's history, what would you want to see?

When my parents found each other again here in the States after losing touch for several years.

What is it about?

Adam Sandler - Stanley Sugarman Juancho Hernangomez - Bo Cruz Queen Latifah - Teresa Sugarman Favorite Scene:   Kermit and Bo line up at center court and Kermit begins the trash talk to get inside of Bo's head, eventually taking him off his game.  Favorite Quote:   "I'll say one last inspirational thing to you: they can't kill you if you're already dead." Review:  Hustle sat on "My List" on my Netflix account for quite a long time. Parked on the couch in the middle of the night with a newborn, and jonesing for some hoops, I dove in on what I read (and heard from others) was a "really good film". I'll give away the suspense, I thought Hustle was decent. It felt too cliche and had little depth, but still, a really good film.  The
