The IF Factor: Questions Answered #331-340

331. If you had to pick the worst movie in history, which one would get the dubious honor?

There are so many. Seriously, sometimes I wonder how some films receive funds to be made, and further, who gives it the green light to be placed on DVD to be documented forever? Off the top of my head right now, I'll go with Click or That's My Boy. Yes, safe to say I'm not a huge Adam Sandler guy.

332. If you could have discovered one medical cure in history, which one would you choose?

Penicillin. Seema pretty practical now, and really cures a lot of illnesses that are now minor, but not so much before this beauty of a discovery.

333. If you could have been a jury member in any court case in history, which trial would you choose?

None. Too much pressure. Although, I've never had to serve (yet), I guess I would choose a trial not so controversial or public. Although it didn't include a jury, I would have loved to sit in on the A-Rod/ML:B suspension arbitration hearings. That would have been gold. 

334. If you could add one sentence to the U.S. Constitution, what would it say?

"The right of life, liberty, and the pursuit of happiness does not include lifetime or extensive government assistance" Controversial? Sure, but that's just how I feel. 

335. If you could be the author of any quotation from history, what words would you like to have uttered?

“Live as if you were to die tomorrow. Learn as if you were to live forever.”― Mahatma Gandhi

Such a great quote that truly embodies many of the qualities I strongly hold - faith, education, imagination, and the appreciation of life. 

336. If you could choose, from what you own right now, what clothes to be buried in when you die, what would you wear?

Ohhhhh, I don't know. I could careless about what I look like when I'm buried as long as I spend eternity with Jesus. But to answer the question, a simple suit and tie would suffice.

337. If you had to describe the worst job interview in your life, what job would it have been for?

My personal worst job interview would either be for a position to be a farmer (I don't think you apply for that anyway) and to work in the fast food industry. Why? Both jobs are the antithesis of me, and my heart wouldn't be in the interview at all. 

338. If you could have hit any homerun in baseball history, which one would you choose?

Easy - Joe Carter's World Series winning home run. It's the dream every baseball-loving kid has when growing up. Other home runs may have gone further, maybe even more dramatic, but none has meant as much as that one. 

339. If you could give anonymous advice to any one person about their appearance, who would it be, and what would you say?

To young black males: You - we - are behind the stereotypical eight ball in various matters, don't compound the issue with an idiotic appearance. Do better.

Sunday Sundown Rundown - 11/6/22

3 Up 1. NYC Marathon Winners - I am ALWAYS in awe of marathon runners, especially, marathon winners. Congratulations to Evans Chebet and Sharon Lokedi on winning the Men's and Women's races.  2. Taylor Swift - Only Taylor Swift can reach the heights of breaking records from the likes of The Beatles. And well, she's done just that. Also, she's taken over the entire Top 10 by becoming the first artist - ever! - to do just that. Amazing.  3. World Series No-Hitter (and Championship) - It pains me to give the Houston Astros some love in this space, but it is deserved. Especially, for that combined no-hitter in Game 4 of the World Series. Kudos.  3 Down 1. Antisemitic Rhetoric - There is so much that can be said here. I'll just repeat a sentence from an Asian student in our office as others discussed Kyrie Irving, Kanye West, and all of the antisemitic rhetoric currently out there - why would you say any of this? 2. Takeoff Killed - Such a tragic occurrence. We just do

62 is Amazing...So was the Mental Competitiveness

It's very easy to fall into the low-hanging fruit that surrounds what Aaron Judge pulled off in hitting 62 - SIXTY-TWO!! - home runs. What's the real home run record? What is your opinion? Who's the real home run king? You know, all of the hot-takes and forced debates that always seem flood to the surface and strangle the moments, accomplishments, and specialness in sports.  The conversation is valid, and it is definitely the fault of no one else besides Major League Baseball that we are currently in this position of deciphering records from *records. We've done the steroids discussion in every shape, form, arena, and angle thus far - nothing is going to change. We all have had time to plant our flag and get comfortable with steroids, the steroid era, and its place in the game of baseball's history.  Even the "American League Record" moniker, while fact, still had the feeling of reaching for legitimacy to combat the steroid gorilla in the 62 in '22 roo

WWE Extreme Rules 2022 Review: "Keep Doing That Thing...Whatever it is. It's Working"

Never in my wildest dreams did I ever think as a young, teenage wrestling fanatic that the WWE would be better off without Vince McMahon. But in the year 2022, this very much rings true. Ever since the Chairman of the Board swayed his arms in that classic McMahon strut right out of the WWE, leaving Triple H, Stephanie McMahon, and Nick Kahn with the brass ring (how about that ode to Vince?), the product of the WWE has actually pulled me back in.  Heck, I watched RAW live, for an hour. Not the whole three hours, because, really, I still have no idea how some fans do that. Even if the show is good.  Nonetheless, much like all things that get a fresh coat of paint in pro wrestling, it becomes a hot commodity. Sustaining it is the challenge (see AEW for proof). We'll see how long this lasts, but for now, the WWE is once again entertaining, and that doesn't bode well for the rest of the wrestling industry.  I tuned into Extreme Rules, WWE's long-time nod to ECW with a night fu

Sunday Sundown Rundown - 10/17/22

3 Up 1. Four Astronauts Return Home - I can't imagine being in space for six months. I've had my experiences of living out of a suitcase on earth for as long as two weeks on the road, and that's difficult. Space? For 6 months. Kudos to all four astronauts. And of course, I'm glad that they're home safe.  2. Bruce Sutter - The Hall of Fame unfortunately passed away this week. And while I never saw Sutter pitch, I too threw a split-fingered fastball when I didn't have much else in my development as a pitcher in college. I've got much respect for the inventor of the pitch. RIP.  3. Floating City - Give this article a read. A floating city? The whole entire idea sounds crazy, but at the same time, super cool. Rising sea levels has everyone thinking differently, and this is certainly that.  3 Down 1. Sandy Hook Families - The families were awarded a huge settlement this week in a case against Alex Jones. While that should be an "Up", I couldn't he
