The IF Factor: Questions Answered #131-140

131. If you were going to initiate a new charity, what would be its mission and who would it benefit?

A new charity would go towards helping children of immigrant parents and giving them opportunities they may not already have open to them, or simply keeping them on the right track towards making a better life for themselves in this great country. 

132. If you could have been vice-president to any America president, which president would you choose?

Hmmm, I'd go with President Clinton. No, not for those reasons he's become a punch line for, but for the solid reason that the nation was in a much better place during the 90's when he was president. Growing dot com industry, very little international affairs to worry about, and booming economy.

133. If you could “unknown” one thing you know, what would it be?

Honestly, the first thing that came to my mind was a former student-athlete at work telling me that he worked as a male stripper after school to make immediate cash and pointed to a man who had just walked in, and said that guy often visited the establishment where he worked. The guy he pointed to ended up being the official for the wrestling contest. 

Only because that happened recently...yeah, didn't need to know that. Any of it. And all of it. He was a nice guy upon introducing myself, but with that floating around in your head, makes it hard to be too friendly with the official. 

134. If you could have one entire country “depopulated” as your private property, which country would you take as your own?

My parent's homeland of St. Vincent and the Grenadines. Fact: Cleanest beach water in the world. Umm yeah, that would be soooo mine! 

135. If you were to be the personal valet of any one man or woman from history, who would you want to work for? 

Reverend Dr. Martin Luther King Jr. I'm sure it would be tough, especially during what he went through, but I think it would be highly beneficial to have first hand experience of how he carried himself through such adversity. Plus, as I currently go through his autobiography as I write this, the man is so intelligent. His thoughts and words really blow your mind.

136. If you could hire any architect alive or from history to design your dream house, who would you pick, and where would you build it? 

Oh jees, I haven't the faintest idea of architects. The tag team partner works with them, and she's fans of certain ones. I try to remember just to be a good spouse and show interest, but it's not like I stand outside of buildings marveling at them and screaming with signs of my fandom. Little extreme? Okay, maybe. 

I'll go with Charles Luckman Associates, because they designed the current Madison Square Garden. And yes, I totally wikipedia'ed that. 

137. If you could have invented anything from history, what would you pick?

A cup-o-tea maker. What?! It's a machine that makes you tea just the way you want it. I find it amazing there are coffee makers everywhere, even in hotel rooms, and yet, in 2013, we are still making tea by hand. And yes, I'd call it the Cup-o-Tea maker. I just know it'll revolutionize morning drinks like George Foreman grills did for easy cooking. 

138. If you could invent something that currently does not exist, what would it be? 

Air buses for big cities. Something like what you saw in the Jetsons. They pick you up in one spot, and glide on over and softly land at the next. helping with transportation. And of course, highly energy efficient. 

139. If you could have been the first person to discover any part of the world, what place would you want to have found?

I'm biased, but it would be the Caribbean. I can only imagine how the British felt when they came across those islands. 

140. If you could have any music group alive play at your birthday party, which group would you hire? 

The Spice Girls. I'm kidding. Well, their pretty attractive, so maybe half-kidding. 

I'd probably go with No Doubt. Nothing too crazy, as you can jam out to them, and they can take it down and mellow out if the mood calls for it.

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. 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. 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
