The IF Factor: Questions Answered #121-130

121. If you were on trial and someone you know (who is not a lawyer) had to act as your legal representative, who would you want to defend you?

Shockingly, one of my closest friends is a lawyer. However, since I cannot pick him, I will go with another friend who has the type of personality that can acquire anything and really has an act for being charming and persuasive. 

122. If you could change one of your personality traits, what would it be?

Not being very welcoming in the morning. I'd like to change this trait, and I am working on doing so.

123. If you could adopt one personality trait from someone you know, what would you take, and from whom?

I have a few family members and friends who have the type of personality that is free-spirited. They are able to simply pick up and go. They are adventurous and willing to take these adventures on the whim. Unfortunately, I am too much of an analyzer that takes finances, repercussions, consequences, and any other backlash into consideration. It has it's downfalls as well, but being more spontaneous would be welcomed. 

124. If you could have a romance with any fictional character, who would it be?

This is super weird. After all, wouldn't I be selecting based on the real life woman playing the character? Nah uh. Nope. No way. A married man knows better. Especially one whose wife reads this blog. I'll go with Princess Jasmine from Aladdin. No loop holes there to get me in trouble.

125. If you could have avoided living one year from your past, which year would you like to have eliminated?

I really don't like to erase anything as every moment helps make you the person you currently are. However, if I could have avoided 2004, that would have been great. Yes, not having to experience that Boston Red Sox comeback on my beloved New York Yankees would have been nice to miss.

126. If you could commit one crime without being caught, what crime would you commit?

Another weird question. I wouldn't want to do anything really crazy like murder or assault. That's just insane. I'd go with Grand Theft Auto of a police car. Just to see what it's like to put sirens on and get through traffic.

127. If you could be the parent of one famous person, who would you want it to be?

It would be nice to be the parent of Derek Jeter. Imagine how proud Mr. and Mrs. Jeter must be. But I'll go with being the parent of Mark Zuckerberg. Can you say early retirement?

128. If you could ensure that your children never have one experience that you have had, what would it be?

My high school experience. In going to one of the most dangerous high schools in New York State during my time there, I would hope to have my child have a more enjoyable, rewarding, and safer high school experience than I did.

129. If you could eat one food in any quantity for the rest of your life with no ill effects whatsoever, what food would you choose?

Tacos or chicken wings. I could eat both in high volumes. And with no ill effects, would probably do so.

130. If you had to eliminate one season permanently (spring, summer, autumn, or winter), which would go?

Easy, winter. I hate the winter, the cold weather, and especially snow.

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

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. 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
