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 - 5/22/22

3 Up 1. NY Times Investigative Series on Haiti - The history of Haiti is such a complex (and unfortunate) one. Really, it's a story that goes untold, specifically for the context of how the country is viewed. From being forced to pay operations to enslavers (yeah, you read that right), to so many other historical setbacks - including American interventions - the nation's history is so well laid out in this latest NY Times piece. I urge you to give it a read.  2. Equal Pay for US Women's Soccer Team - Kudos to US Soccer on coming around to giving the USWNT their due - equal pay for prize money from the World Cup. It's a start, and more importantly, it's a push forward for women's sports that do in fact push the needle in comparison, or more so, to their male counterparts.  3. Kate McKinnon - Random "UP" here, but I'm doing it anyway...A few SNL usuals are rumored to be walking away, including Kate McKinnon. The show obviously doesn't carry the

Sunday Sundown Rundown - 5/8/22

3 Up 1. Mother's Day - It's a day for mothers everywhere, and really, since becoming a dad, I've advocated that it should be an entire weekend. But ah well - Happy Mother's Day to all of the moms out there - past, present, and subbing in. And of course, Thank You!  2. NHL Playoffs - I've really gotten into hockey over the past two weeks, especially, the Rangers/Penguins series. Honestly, in my opinion, the Turner deal might just be the best thing the NHL has ever done. From the production to the in-studio crew, the product is immensely better - and easier to locate.  3. Pusha T - After over 20 years in the industry, rapper Pusha T finally landed a number 1 album with It's Almost Dry . Following a well-publicized battle with Drake, one in which he outed the mega-star for hiding his son (or you know, it was Drake just hiding the world from his son, yada yada), Pusha follows it up with a solid album, one that is a favorite of mine thus far in 2022. Kudos to Pusha. 

Sunday Sundown Rundown - 5/15/22

3 Up 1. California Church Heroes - It's soooooooo weird that the top spot is a result of something so horrific as our ongoing domestic terrorism problem of mass shootings. Still, the courage shown by the five members who stopped the shooter deserves it. Those individuals tackled the shooter and tied him up with an electric cord, while wounded.  It's so tough to fathom that those possibilities are within the realm of your Sunday worship, within the sanctity of your church.  But such is America... 2. Olivia Rodrigo & Drake - Rodrigo continues to reap rewards on an excellent album in 2021 as she topped the Billboard Music Awards with seven awards. There was also Drake who I'm beginning to sense we won't really appreciate his body of work until he's near the end of his career. But yeah, Drake poured in a few more for the legacy debates and discussions.
