The IF Factor: Questions Answered #111-120

111. If you had to donate everything you own to a charity that you have never given to previously, which charity would you give to?

I would donate my belonging to a charity that shelter for families, especially those in loss. I would want my possessions to go towards giving a family a leg up in life, or a second shot at a normal one. 

112. If you could work for any person in the world, who would it be, and what job would you want? 

If I couldn't be a Hotel Resort critic (Pondering 10 - Jobs I Would Love to Have), is it weird to say that I would choose the job I currently have? I love what I do, and thoroughly enjoy it.
113. If you could discover one item that belonged to someone in history, whose would it be, and what would it be? 

I would discover part of Noah's boat from the flood. I think that would be really awesome to come across. 

114. If you could “uninvent” one thing in the world so that it would no longer exist, what would you choose? 

Reality television.

115. If you were to be executed tomorrow but could decide the method, how would you prefer to go?

What an awful question, right? I guess I would choose lethal injection. Electrocution and hanging just seem like too much suffering.  

116. If you could play any position on your favorite sports team, what would it be? 

Easy - closer for the New York Yankees. 

117. If you could have a year any place in the world, all expenses paid, where would you go? 

Sydney, Australia. 

118. If you could see only one movie ever again, what film would you choose?

I'm sure DP devotees know the answer to this - Friday Night Lights. 

119. If you had to choose the title of your autobiography, what would  it be?

How about "Dome Pondering, The Autobiography?" Too generic? Fine. How about, "Life Long Ponderer: The Autobiography of..." 

120. If you could have only one piece of furniture in your house, what would you want it to be?

A desk. Everything else - TV watching, relaxing, sleeping - can be done on the floor. However, sometimes, a desk is needed to simply write, eat, and think.

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

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. 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

3 Up  1. Rail Workers Agreement - The nation avoiding a major - major! - supply chain issue when the Rail Workers union settled their dispute. In the process we learned that these workers had one - one! - sick day per year. That's absolutely insane. How could you not root for the union here to win? And they did.  2. Protecting Same-Sex/Interracial Marriage - It's amazing that we have to politicize and advocate as people for these kid of things, but here we are.  3. World Cup - Sports biggest event continues on with some thrilling games and upsets. Selfishly giving some love to the US Men's National Team who survived Group Play and made it to the Knockout stages.  3 Down 1. "Terminating the Constitution" - Look, I'm so over bashing Donald Trump. That's my neutral take on it all. My political take is this, how did we get here? Candidates are calling for ripping up the document that we base everything off of? Again, how did we get here?  2. Hate Speech on Twi
