The IF Factor: Questions Answered #251-260

251. If you were to invent an award to give to one commercial company, which one would you award, and for what? 

As of this moment, I would give an "Employee Empowerment" award to Google. No not because they host this very blog, but because of how they treat and take care of their employees. I've had the opportunity in my career to work with those who are employed by Google and all of the rumors and hearsay is true - they do have fun and are super productive! Kudos to Google on finding the balance of employee happiness, innovation, and productivity.

252. If you could resolve any single dispute, anywhere in the world, what would you solve?

I would solve race relations here in America. Since the slave trade, our country has been struggling to see one another beyond the color of our skin and the different ways we look.


 253. If you could be a contestant on any game show, which would you like to be on?

Easy. Jeopardy. DP devotees would know, I've been a huge Jeopardy fan since I was eight. Yeah, I know, it's the nerd in me. 
254. If you could read the mind of anyone you know, who would it be?

My wife. It would make things a lot easier. I'm sure all married men echo my answer as well. 
255. If you could read the mind of someone famous, who would it be?

Lady Gaga. Amanda Bynes. Dennis Rodman. Kanye West. Pick any one of the four. I would just love to know what runs through their minds before they do the things that, you know, that only they do.
256. If you could dance any one dance perfectly, which dance would you choose?

Could someone teach me to Dougie? Just kidding. Break dancing. Just because its cool. Plus, you either seem like the "cool" guy at the party, or simply just the random guy break dancing to slow music. Either way, it's a win. 
257. If you could be the editor of any single magazine, what publication would you pick?

Men's Health Magazine. 
258. If you were elected leader of the United States tomorrow, what would be your first act?

Reform Education. Isn't it funny how this topic is always on the lips of every politician come election season, yet you never hear it in the years between. 
259. If you could eliminate one thing you do each day in the bathroom so that you never had to do it again, what would it be?

Clean the bathtub/shower is my immediate answer. However, because I don't do that everyday, I'll have to find something else. And if you do, then you're just sick.

I would go with flossing. It's annoying to stand there and go through every tooth, but it has to get done. Would be nice to simply have my teeth magically flossed before bed. 
260. If you could only hear one voice that you are familiar with for the rest of your life from the mouth of all people, whose would it be? 

 Either Bob Sheppard or Bruce Buffer. DP devotees knew the second was coming. I'll go with Sheppard, for the sole reason that Buffer's constant energy would tire me out.

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!"

Imagine, if we can see the dents and scratches, the smashes and chaos,  on the daily armor, each of us put on. Just imagine.
