The IF Factor: Questions Answered #91-100

91. If you could rid your family of one thing, what would it be?

With a family that is all over the world, it's really hard to put a finger on one thing since there is so many of them who I barely even know. I could wish to have has be closer in proximity, but it's what makes my family the United Nations feel it has. It's what makes me, me. 

However, I'd probably go with the issue that I feel is a universal one for all families, and that is the grudges many have with one another. With a family so spread out and so scarce in real contact, having grudges really makes it harder to maintain already strained relationships. 

92. If you had to name the all-time best song, which would you pick?

Probably the toughest question yet in the series so far. I know whatever answer I put here, I'll read it back a day later and kick myself for not answering with another song. Or a week later with another, or a year later with another. 

So for today, at this very moment, I will go with...

*drum roll* 

"Imagine" by John Lennon.

93. If you could have one thing made out of pure gold, what would you choose?

Anything other than jewelry made out of pure gold is odd, isn't it? With that said, I'd with a house, then sell it for all that it's worth. 

And if your looking for a non-cop out answer, I'll go with a ring for my wife. 

94. If you had to pick one experience or situation when you were the most decisive, which would it be?

Well seeing how I worked with the public, and now students, all in the logistical heavy, event industry,  I'm always decisive. Every day. 

As for one decision, I'd guess I'll go the route with saying "I do" to my wife. 

Yeah, go ahead...awwwwwwww! I know, I know...

95. If you could have only one part of your body massaged every day, what part would you choose?

Easy, my back. Nothing like a good back massage that can really help the extremities of your body. 

96. If you could be the character in any spy novel, who would you choose to be?

Another easy one, Jason Bourne. He's just took cool. 

97. If you could make anyone in the world do something each day, who would it be, and what would you have them do?

I would pick two people - my parents. Talk about two folks who are immigrants not only from the wonderful island of St. Vincent, but from the old generation as well. Stuck in their ways in doing everything - although I must admit some of it actually is still relevant and useful - my parents would highly benefit from trying something new each day. 

98. If you were to choose the breed you would be if you were a dog, which type would best suit you?

Ugh, this is by far the worst question of all-time. I am not a dog enthusiast. I'm sure all of you DP devotees know this. And to be honest, I've grown up with such lack of interest in dogs, my knowledge of breeds are really limited. 

I'll guess I'll go with one I do know, a pug. They are small enough to pampered by over-obsessive humans, and low energized enough to just want to chill all day. 

But I'll repeat, dumb question! 

99. If you had to name the one thing that repeatedly makes you angriest, what would it be?

Inconsiderate people. With a close second being bandwagon, or as I call them, fraudbag fans. 

100. If you could change one thing about the building you work in, what would you alter?

Air Conditioning. I love the athletic facility I work at. It's one of two on campus. I love its design and the multi-purpose facets it offers. However, it lacks central air throughout the building. The offices are air conditioned  but not the actual athletic and performance spaces.

Sunday Sundown Rundown - 12/11/22

3 Up 1. Protection of Same-Sex Marriage - Well, what do you know? Our elected officials CAN work together to get important policies completed that accurately and democratically represent the people. Cynicism aside, it's good to see this bill get passed. Imagine the huge step back that this would have been. 2. Britney Griner Home - I honestly don't care about the politics around this story. Griner needed to come home. And I'm glad she finally is.  3. Impact Wrestling Main Event - Everything that was "Speedball" Mike Bailey vs. "The Walking Weapon" Josh Alexander on this week's episode of Impact Wrestling was what makes pro wrestling so great. Both guys put on a classic that lasted almost an hour, and it was one of the best matches I've enjoyed in a long time. Kudos to both men.  3 Down 1. Grant Wahl - It's the kind of story that is super emotional for the following reasons: 1) Wahl was the premiere journalist in the soccer real; 2) Wahl was be

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

3 Up 1. Healthcare Debt Removed from Credit Score - This is a small win in a direction that just seems, well...reasonable. Healthcare is expensive and not exactly the fault of an individual's ability to handle their finances responsibly. The subtle change (with restrictions) is a nice addition that ought to help many battling health issues, yet not derail their entire personal life.  2. Alyssa Thompson - The teenage phenom comes off gaining some International play but becoming the first overall pick in the NWSL. Thompson's future is SO bright, and this should be part of that narrative when we marvel at her journey.  3. Ozone Layer Recovery - For years, as a kid, I remember hearing that "we were constantly damaging the Ozone layer". Many thanks to Captain Planet and the Planeteers for that insight. I'm glad to see there has been some progress there.  3 Down 1. Brazil Democracy - It's a shame to see politicians around the world pull from our history with senti

Dome Pondering - 2022 Year in Review

What a wildly, polarizing year that was 2022.  Sure, as we close the year, 2020 feels like a decade ago, and "pandemic life" seems like a time that is difficult to remember (or understand). Yet, no matter how much we attempt to pull away, the awfulness of 2020 and all of its impact has left us in 2022 unpacking from it, cleaning up after it, restoring ourselves after it, and/or learning to deal with lingering leftovers as we move forward.  2022 was the perfect bundle of reflection and renewal. For good, bad, excellent, and worse.  Before jumping into this year's Year in Review, I want to THANK YOU , the continued reader of this blog and this eighteenth edition (!) of the Dome Pondering - Year in Review. It is not lost on me that my contribution to this site has slowed down (as such is life), and of course, the world consumes content in a much different (and some would say easier, but not better) way. Yet, after all of these years, it's still pretty damn cool to see th
