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 - 9/18/22

3 Up 1.  Yvon Chouinard - Nothing says big baller like announcing you're donating your company's worth to the mission of fighting climate change. Sure, there are some tax benefits (let's not be silly), but that's still a pretty damn impressive thing to do. Wish we saw that more from billionaires.  2. Aaron Judge - Well, the big fella is on his way to breaking the record of 61 home runs (whether you think it's just the American League record or the in fact still the single-season home run record is up to you). I just hope he does it over the next two days at Yankee Stadium, on YES, with Michael Kay on the call. It'll be a damn shame if it happened on Apple TV where it happens in a vacuum and most fans will be unable to experience history. That would be awful for baseball.  3. How The Word is Passed - This is a selfish "Up" from me because I finally finished this book that has been on my list for a while - and it is a must-read for all. I'm a big

CM Punk's Press Conference Backlash - Hard to Root For

I've always found the pro wrestling press conference to be an interesting dichotomy of the essence of the art form. In an era where kayfabe is dead (or not what it used to be) and the lines are immensely blurred between real life and storyline, or at times, mixed in for engagement, interest, and controversy, the press conference schtick, and the pre-show round tables, sit in this odd space.   Does it live within the space of the pro wrestling world through the illustrious glory of kayfabe? Or is it a real, authentic, full-access medium to the real matters pertaining to the business of the product?  Maybe, I'm the only one being worked. Possibly.  As you can imagine, this is where my thoughts sit in regard to the now infamous CM Punk presser following AEW's Double or Nothing pay-per-view (or premium live event, if that's your vocabulary). I can't help but ask myself multiple times, "Why?" in response to the entire ordeal. And not in an intriguing way, but o

Impact Wrestling Emergence 2022 Review: "...Just Solid - So Freakin' Solid."

It probably won't come as a shock to anyone who follows this blog that I will say the following statement: Impact Wrestling may just be the most consistently entertaining and fresh - very important adjective here! - wrestling product that I've engaged with over the past two years. It's just always there, as solid as it can be. No real highs, or lows that push me away as a fan - just good, consistent, thorough, solid pro wrestling enjoyment.  Now, make no mistake about it, over the past summer, I found myself a whopping thirteen weeks behind this solid product in favor of the still new (and intriguing) AEW product and my on-again-off-again hope in the WWE due to nostalgia. However, trusty-work-from-home days have allowed me to binge watch (and work, of course) and it certainly opened my eyes to a new experience when it came to wrestling. Removal from the episodic style habit, and the feel of episodes bridging together seamlessly.  Also, remove from the internet culture of we

Durant Showed Us Who He Was

When people show you who they are, believe them.  That's what my thought process is reduced to regarding Kevin Durant, his trade request from the Brooklyn Nets, and well, everything else that surrounds the latest drama that has taken over the NBA (and in many ways, the sports world).  Kevin Durant is immensely talented. Superhuman in so many ways. If you see him in person (as I have many times at the Barclays Center as a Brooklyn Net, and once at the Staples Center as a young member of the Oklahoma City Thunder), you're simply in awe of his stature, his ability, and his grace on the court. It's the kind of aura that keeps you believing in the aura of pro sports, and the sheer exclusiveness of these human beings. It's in the same realm as LeBron James and Steph Curry, physical and ability marvels that go just beyond remarkable, existing in a realm of specialness that cannot be described other than comprehension with the eyes.  Kevin Durant is one of my favorite athletes
