The IF Factor: Questions Answered #221-230

221. If you could be buried anywhere, where would it be?

A really, really creepy question. Most don't even think as far ahead as death, and now I'm supposed to look past death? I guess I'll go with somewhere around the tri-state area, close enough where friends and family could visit if needed. 

222. If you could ensure one single personality trait in your children, what would you want it to be?

Easily, the ability to accept people in a diverse way. It's a hard truth to swallow, but whether because of belief, the way they were raised, or just blind ignorance, there are a lot of people who are not open to others who are unlike them. Fortunately, growing up in NYC, I was forced to realize what my mother told me since I was a child - people are people. I hope that trait of acceptance and understanding is passed on to my child.
 

223. If you could run any single company, institution, or organization in the world, which would you choose?

At this point in my career,I'd be honest and say that I am not prepared to run any single company, institution, or organization. At least I don't feel like I am. Either way, for the sake of answering the question, I will go with the NYC Parks and Recreation Department. Boy would I love to overhaul that mess.

224. If you had to select any single man-made object that best represents your personality, what would it be?

I'm not sure if man-made includes electronics or just handcrafted items. But I guess I'll go with a simple (and sort of boring answer) in saying a chair. It's reliable, loyal, supportive, rarely changes, carries a load when required, is decorative, comfortable, and is a flexible item that can be used for multiple tasks. 

225. If you could gain total memory of one year of your life so far, which year would you pick?

Senior year of college. Only because I would love to have blogged more about the various experiences, life lessons, and overall thoughts that I had. Would have been nice as well to look back on those words from that time. 

226. If you could overthrow any government in the world, which one would you replace?

Easily, North Korea. What believer in freedom, democracy, and the right to life, liberty, and the pursuit of happiness wouldn't? 

227. If you could choose any historic figure to read your eulogy, who would you want to do it?

 I guess for DP devotees, you know my first answer would obviously be the DP Page of Famer, Reverend Dr. Martin Luther King Jr. However, I'll be a little unpredictable and fun, and go with "Macho Man" Randy Savage. Not exactly overly historical in the original comprehension, but historical nonetheless. I'm sure I'd be smiling and laughing hysterically from heaven as he hits a "Ooooooh yeah! Dig it!" at the end of everymajor point in the eulogy.

228. If you could put any person in prison, who would you lock up?

I guess I'll stay with the North Korea theme - can I say Kim Jong-Un? I guess I just did.

229. If you had to name your single worst fear, what would it be?

Easily, failure. I hate to admit it, but I'm so afraid of failing, some times I take the easiest road in life and limit my risks. I know, I know...I'm working on it. 

230. If you had to describe the single worst thing a friend could do to you, what would it be?

Friends fight. Friends have disagreements. Friends have their moments of doing the other wrong. But a friend that uses you for their gain is no friend.

WWE Wrestlemania XL Review: "I absolutely loved this Wrestlemania"

It's easy to get caught up and become a prisoner of the moment. Especially in today's world where the latest moment is ostracized, super-analyzed, and hyperbolized - it's very much the clickbait, social media, microwave society we live in.  Yet, even after acknowledging that (as well as my Tribal Chief, of course), I still come to this feeling that Wrestlemania XL is one of the best Wrestlemania's, ever.  Yes, ever!  I don't need Triple H's metrics and benchmarks to influence me. No, no, no! In terms of hype, storylines, payoffs, match quality, and just overall fun - this entire weekend was amazing.  I'm slightly skewed in my preference as well. This was my son's first Wrestlemania as a pro wrestling fan. Having him at my side cheering on his favorites, getting caught up in the drama, and even crying at the end of the night because his Tribal Chief lost to "that no good Cody" added to the overall appreciation of the event.  So yeah, I have some

DP Review of the Alternate Knicks Orange Jersey

One of the good aspects about having a blog and being truthful and honest about it, is the hindsight thought process it provides. DP devotees already know how much I love my New York Knicks, and how excited I was about their new jerseys last year. It was a new look that was desperately needed ( DP Review On Knicks New Uniforms ).  In reviewing those jerseys last year, I had the following comments in regards to then-rumors regarding the addition of an alternative orange jersey for the Knicks and overall NBA changes to the Christmas Day special jerseys:  "As long as we do not add an "alternative jersey" (I read rumors of an orange one - woof!) (and the league-wide Spanish jerseys are fine). And please, please - PLEASE - let's finally do away with the awful green jerseys we feel the need to wear on Christmas and St. Patrick's day! Pretty please!"
