The IF Factor: Questions Answered #381-390

381. If you could have anyone in the world stop by for a visit, who would you want it to be?

Wow, anyone in the world, huh? How about if I go with Anderson Cooper. Wouldn't mind having dinner with a guy who probably has tons of stories to share, but doesn't seem like someone who would be completely into himself. 

382. If the world were to turn to one single source of energy tomorrow, what would you want it to be?

Positive. 

383. If you had to pick the teacher you've had who would be the most disappointed with how your life turned out, who would it be?

My eighth grade Spanish teacher. She once told a group of us that "we wouldn't amount to anything". I'm not sure if that was the secret to her madness or if it was how she really felt. She was indeed a pretty mean lady. Regardless, I like to believe I've proved her wrong. 

384. If you have to name the world's most pressing environmental concern, what would it be?

I'll be honest, I'm not totally sold on the issue of global warming. But I will say that a huge environmental issue is indeed clean emissions. I think the world can do a much better job in providing cleaner, safer, and more efficient energy. 

For example, what if solar panels were mandatory and built on top of buildings and other infrastructure? 

385. If you could have one television sitcom set as your real home, which show would it be from?

Obviously, I love The Cosby Show, but who wouldn't want the mansion from Fresh Prince of Bel-Air. Regardless, if we've never seen all of the rooms and the full layout, it's Bel-Air, it's a mansion, and it's going to be nice. 

386. If you could rename any sports team, which would you pick, and what would you rename it?

The obvious is the Washington Redskins. However, that's currently in the process. Personally, the name Memphis Grizzlies bothers me. After moving from Vancouver, the name never really fit. Though, yes, we could say the same about the Los Angeles Lakers and the Utah Jazz. Whatever. I'm sticking with the Memphis Grizzlies and renaming them the Memphis Blues. 

387. If you could add one required course to the present school system, what would it be?

I would add a course called "Professional Economics" which will be the second course of what else, Home Economics. Instead of focusing on necessities to help children provide for themselves in a home environment, "Pro Ec" would focus on preparing students for college, interviews, professional dress concepts, proper networking, and building a foundation for their life AFTER high school. 

388. If you could have the personality of any TV character, whose would you adopt?

For me, it's easy - Coach Eric Taylor from Friday Night Lights. Who wouldn't want to be Coach Taylor? Family man. "Kingmaker". Leader. And just outright filled with integrity and sheer guts. 

389. If you could retake one course you took in high school or college, which would it be?

High School: AP English
Undergrad: Power of Communications
Graduate: (Tie) Physiology and Performance and Wellness Training Concepts

390. If you could set your country's immigration policy, what would it be?

Obviously, in a perfect world it would easily be executed. But my immigration policy is this: All individuals looking to enter the country must apply. Illegals who have been caught will be deported, and the businesses or companies caught employing them without taxes will be fined heavily, with possible jail time. 

Educational visas and pardons will require students receiving federal funding must remain in the country and working within the nation for four years, similar to other countries. 

I'm very pro-immigration as it is the core of our country's well-being and will ultimately help us compete on several levels, but I'm also not in favor of making it easy for immigrants to use our system at the expense of natural born Americans.

Impact Wrestling Emergence 2022 Review: "...Just Solid - So Freakin' Solid."

It probably won't come as a shock to anyone who follows this blog that I will say the following statement: Impact Wrestling may just be the most consistently entertaining and fresh - very important adjective here! - wrestling product that I've engaged with over the past two years. It's just always there, as solid as it can be. No real highs, or lows that push me away as a fan - just good, consistent, thorough, solid pro wrestling enjoyment.  Now, make no mistake about it, over the past summer, I found myself a whopping thirteen weeks behind this solid product in favor of the still new (and intriguing) AEW product and my on-again-off-again hope in the WWE due to nostalgia. However, trusty-work-from-home days have allowed me to binge watch (and work, of course) and it certainly opened my eyes to a new experience when it came to wrestling. Removal from the episodic style habit, and the feel of episodes bridging together seamlessly.  Also, remove from the internet culture of we

Sunday Sundown Rundown - 5/7/17

3 Up 1. Captured Girls Return - The evil that is the gross, disgusting, group that is Boko Haram released 82 of the 300-plus they kidnapped over a year ago. Many are still missing, but giving these girls a chance at life away from the clutches of this group deserves the plus this week.  2. Dear White People - I got around to checking out this show on Netflix and boy was I happy to do so. DWP is VERY thought provoking, truthful, honest, authentic, and yes, very funny. And it's a great show, visually. Can't wait for season two.  3. LeBron James - Because most of us are just waiting for the eventual Cavs/Warriors NBA Finals, we're losing sight of really how awesome LeBron James is. The dude really is the difference maker in this league. It's quite astonishing to think about. The Cavs are rolling, and he's just toying with opponents.  3 Down 1. Trumpcare - Look, I'm not going into this full on. But it just seems to me that this administration is

Bound For Glory 2020 Review - If A Tree Falls And No One Hears It...

Television in 2020 has been weird. Check that. It's super weird.  In a year marred by pandemics, death, catastrophe, and overwhelming heartbreak, the viewing habits of everything in entertainment has changed - wrestling included. Ratings are down. No one respects appointment television - and heck, there is even less need for the idea of watching content through said television. Where am I going with this on a Wrestling pay-per-view review? Come on, get to the point, bro!  I haven't been shy in communicating my severe disappointment in professional wrestling (namely WWE) during this pandemic ( Pro Wrestling in COVID Times ). When many entertainment options were off the table, most notably that of sports, pro wrestling had an extreme opportunity to give fans something different, and even capture casual fans.  Unfortunately, they didn't. And a large part of my growing disinterest with pro wrestling has been because of the WWE, and to a much lesser extent, AEW.
