The IF Factor: Questions Answered #81-90

81. If you could enact one law in your country that does not currently exist, what would it be?

There would actually be quite a few. However, I would go with gun control. Nothing too elaborate, but the type of control that requires screening and effective security of allowing firearm usage in this country. 

82. If you could own only one thing for the rest of your life, what would you choose?

I would probably choose a good pair of pants. Weird? Yes, most definitely. But a good pair of pants sets the tone, and for a big and tall guy like myself, dictates the comfort for the day. As hard as pants are to find for us big guys, I'd like to own one pair, thus renting or borrowing everything else. If you happen to be one of those folks that has your perfect pants size in every store, you most likely won't understand this.

83. If you could be the current world champion in any one sport, which sport would it be?

Baseball, no doubt. It would be awesome to be part of a group that spent 8 months together towards one goal. And can you imagine catching the last out? 

84. If you could spend a weekend in any hotel in the world with all expenses paid, which hotel would you choose?

I'm not very up on my hotel knowledge, so I did what every other person does in 2012, I Googled "Best hotels in the world" and came across the Travel and Lesiure magazine website, and their yearly top 50 hotels in the world. #1 was a place in Tanzania. No interest. #2 was a hotel ranch in Montana, U.S. Even less interest. #3 was Southern Ocean Lounge on Kangaroo Island, Australia. Bingo. There is my answer. 

85. If you could cast an actor now alive to play you in a new film, what kind of film would it be and who would you choose?

Well, since Denzel and I are mere images of one another, obviously it would be him. 

No?

Seriously, I would select Kal Penn to probably play a younger D-Robo going through the college years. I think a movie about my senior year in college, and my senior year of baseball would be make for a decent thought provoking indie film. 

86. If you could have your portrait painted by any painter in history, to whom would you give the commission?

Michelangelo? Why not? He's a pretty good artist, and made for a key member of the Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles. 

87. If you were given one hour to spend and unlimited amount of money in any store in the world, where would it be?

My first option would be a supermarket, but it really doesn't maximize the "unlimited" part of this deal.I would probably spend one hour in Best Buy purchasing all types of electronics. You know, the usual, televisions, tablets, sounds systems, video games and home appliances. 

88. If you could say one sentence to the leader of the country you are presently in, what would you say?

"These four years, not the first four, will define your legacy."

89. If you had to choose the best advertising campaign ever created, which one would it be?

Whatever campaign advertises bottled water. Even though I'm guilty of purchasing it, I still find it fascinating who ever came up with the idea of selling a product that is free to the buying public. The logic really defies any and all business plans and models. 

90. If you could have a song written about you, what musician would you want to compose it, who would perform it, and what would it be called?

It would be called "Ponderer", by Tina Turner.

Sunday Sundown Rundown - 11/6/22

3 Up 1. NYC Marathon Winners - I am ALWAYS in awe of marathon runners, especially, marathon winners. Congratulations to Evans Chebet and Sharon Lokedi on winning the Men's and Women's races.  2. Taylor Swift - Only Taylor Swift can reach the heights of breaking records from the likes of The Beatles. And well, she's done just that. Also, she's taken over the entire Top 10 by becoming the first artist - ever! - to do just that. Amazing.  3. World Series No-Hitter (and Championship) - It pains me to give the Houston Astros some love in this space, but it is deserved. Especially, for that combined no-hitter in Game 4 of the World Series. Kudos.  3 Down 1. Antisemitic Rhetoric - There is so much that can be said here. I'll just repeat a sentence from an Asian student in our office as others discussed Kyrie Irving, Kanye West, and all of the antisemitic rhetoric currently out there - why would you say any of this? 2. Takeoff Killed - Such a tragic occurrence. We just do

62 is Amazing...So was the Mental Competitiveness

It's very easy to fall into the low-hanging fruit that surrounds what Aaron Judge pulled off in hitting 62 - SIXTY-TWO!! - home runs. What's the real home run record? What is your opinion? Who's the real home run king? You know, all of the hot-takes and forced debates that always seem flood to the surface and strangle the moments, accomplishments, and specialness in sports.  The conversation is valid, and it is definitely the fault of no one else besides Major League Baseball that we are currently in this position of deciphering records from *records. We've done the steroids discussion in every shape, form, arena, and angle thus far - nothing is going to change. We all have had time to plant our flag and get comfortable with steroids, the steroid era, and its place in the game of baseball's history.  Even the "American League Record" moniker, while fact, still had the feeling of reaching for legitimacy to combat the steroid gorilla in the 62 in '22 roo

WWE Extreme Rules 2022 Review: "Keep Doing That Thing...Whatever it is. It's Working"

Never in my wildest dreams did I ever think as a young, teenage wrestling fanatic that the WWE would be better off without Vince McMahon. But in the year 2022, this very much rings true. Ever since the Chairman of the Board swayed his arms in that classic McMahon strut right out of the WWE, leaving Triple H, Stephanie McMahon, and Nick Kahn with the brass ring (how about that ode to Vince?), the product of the WWE has actually pulled me back in.  Heck, I watched RAW live, for an hour. Not the whole three hours, because, really, I still have no idea how some fans do that. Even if the show is good.  Nonetheless, much like all things that get a fresh coat of paint in pro wrestling, it becomes a hot commodity. Sustaining it is the challenge (see AEW for proof). We'll see how long this lasts, but for now, the WWE is once again entertaining, and that doesn't bode well for the rest of the wrestling industry.  I tuned into Extreme Rules, WWE's long-time nod to ECW with a night fu

Sunday Sundown Rundown - 10/17/22

3 Up 1. Four Astronauts Return Home - I can't imagine being in space for six months. I've had my experiences of living out of a suitcase on earth for as long as two weeks on the road, and that's difficult. Space? For 6 months. Kudos to all four astronauts. And of course, I'm glad that they're home safe.  2. Bruce Sutter - The Hall of Fame unfortunately passed away this week. And while I never saw Sutter pitch, I too threw a split-fingered fastball when I didn't have much else in my development as a pitcher in college. I've got much respect for the inventor of the pitch. RIP.  3. Floating City - Give this article a read. A floating city? The whole entire idea sounds crazy, but at the same time, super cool. Rising sea levels has everyone thinking differently, and this is certainly that.  3 Down 1. Sandy Hook Families - The families were awarded a huge settlement this week in a case against Alex Jones. While that should be an "Up", I couldn't he
