The IF Factor: Questions Answered #101-110

101. If you were to prescribe a cure for grief, what would it entail?

The cure would be music, dancing, and the clinching ingredient of the cure, a smile. 

102. If someone were trying to woo your lover away from you, what methods would bring them the most success?

Haha, this one is going to get me in trouble. But here goes...

They'd have to be funny, a little bit crazy, and be pretty good at making meatballs and pancakes for starters. 

After that, I would say being a good listener and being very patient will help too. 

With that said...I love you, babe!

103. If you had to name the one thing you have witnessed in your life that best describes Goodness, what would you say?

I once saw a blind man on the subway drop a $100 bill as he was attempting to feel for it's worth in the midst of three other bills. A lady next to her picked it up and returned it to him.

Simple, but really that is all it takes to actually be good in this world. A little bit of effort. Unfortunately, even that, most of the time, is too much.  

104. If you could have modeled in one of Calvin Klein's advertising campaigns for either underwear or fragrance, which ad would you like to have been in?

Fragrance. I don't think anyone wants to see me model underwear. Especially, when I'm supposed to entice people to buy said underwear. 

105. If you had to name the best music album ever recorded, which would you select?

Thriller, by Michael Jackson. Most sold album of all-time. Nothing has sold more, and nothing ever will. 

106. If you had to name the one time in your life when you were the most angry, when was it?

It's hard to pin point one moment to be honest. There were personal instances such as fights as a kid or even world event moments such as 9/11 and mass shootings. 

This is one I really can't answer since no one really ranks their level of anger. At least I don't think they do. 

But to simply answer the question, I'd go with the moment after a fight I had gotten into in Junior High School. As one of the new kids in the neighborhood, a kid decided to throw my jacket and hat on the floor in homeroom. After ignoring him, and putting it back, he threw them back on the floor and stomped on my newly fitted Yankee hat. Now remember, this was before fitted hats were popular and were being sold as "official hats of baseball". Of course, I saved up $24 (insanely expensive at the time for a hat), and this kid flattened it in one stomp. Well, in a fury of such rage that I don't even remember much thereafter, I decked him straight in the face, tackled him, mounted him, and fired fist after fist upon his face. 

His friends eventually pulled us apart, as I thought they would then jump me. However, the teacher returned to the classroom and the ongoing ruckus, and was never able to get a word out of the class on what had just happened. Even though he had a bloodied lip and swollen face, and I looked disheveled and possibly still boiling with rage. 

Nonetheless, afterwards,  in typical fashion, we all became friends. 

Good answer? No? Tough, I tried. 

107. If you were to be killed by an animal, what kind would you want it to be?

What?! This is the most terrifying question so far.  I would settle for something quick and easy. I'll go with the most wimpiest way to go out in regards to this question. Being scratched by a cat, getting infected, and then passing away. 

108. If you could have any view in the world visible from your bed, what would it be?

Simply, a view of the beach. Preferably on the ocean. 

109. If you could have prevented any single fashion idea or trend from happening, which would you have stopped?

Sagging pants. I'll admit it started during my generation, but the fact that it is still popular combined with the fact that skinny jeans are as well makes for a terrible, terrible statement. 

It amazes me that kids still do it, especially when the gesture originated from jail when men would sag their pants to make other inmates aware that they were, ahem, available. 

110. If you were to have bells ring out loud automatically (for all to hear) every time you did a certain thing, what would it be? 

Every time I posted something new to the DP. How about that for advertisement? *ding*ding* Would be like a weird version of Pavlov's dog.

Sunday Sundown Rundown - 11/20/22

3 Up 1. Bad Bunny - Congratulations (and major breakthrough props) are in order for Bad Bunny who made history with the first Spanish-Language Album of the Year nomination. The dude has been crushing it with major cross-over appeal - and yes, he's a helluva wrestler.  2. Taylor Swift - This could be a down because of the entire Ticketmaster ordeal, but Swift gets the "Up" solely because only she can break Ticketmaster like this. The star power continues to be amazing.  3. FIFA World Cup - Sure, there is plenty of negatives to get into here, but the event itself is amazing. I'm ready to get caught up in it all.  3 Down 1. Iran Protestors - The nation is in political unrest and many protesters being caught are being sentenced to harsh penalties, or worse, death. Just more instability  2. U.S. Mass Shootings - We just continue to give access to individuals who shouldn't have guns. We've become so numb to this. What have we become?  Prayers, comfort, and positive

Reaction to Nike's Kaepernick Ad

So in shocking fashion, the juggernaut that is Nike has now backed Colin Kaepernick and all that is, was, and has become, in this on-going dilemma. And of course, has now added a new layer to it all. Interestingly enough, the company fully supports Kap, and has centered the 30th Anniversary of it's "Just Do It" campaign around him, continuing a clear divide of idealism and ridiculousness across the country. And shall I say, even more absurd rhetoric on defining patriotism in the good ol' United States of America. First things, first. If you're new to this blog, I'll catch you up to speed on my stance - I've been with Kap. And no, I'm not "anti-American". But I'm pretty sure you will jump to conclusions and tell me that I am.

Sunday Sundown Rundown - 12/13/20

  3 Up 1. Vaccines - Well, it's here. The FDA approved emergency use of multiple vaccines (with more to come) and it now feels like there is a significant light at the end of this dark, scary tunnel. We're not out of it yet as the virus continues to rage, shutdown are pending, and vaccines distribution is sure to be polarizing. But at the very least, there is an answer forthcoming. Continue to stay safe, ya'll.  2. Rashinda Jones at MSNBC - This is small, but it is super cool. Rashida Jones - no, not that Rashida Jones of Ann Perkins...or Karen Filepelli fame - became the first black President of a major news network, taking over at MSNBC. The country needs a new shift in cable news in the worst way, and hopefully Jones can be a part of it. At the very least, it's nice to see the industry having representation at all levels.
