Would You Rather: Questions #11-20


11. Would you rather spend three weeks cleaning the bathrooms at LAX or spend 48 hours under observation in a psychiatric ward?

I would probably prefer to spend the three weeks cleaning the bathrooms at LAX. 48 hours under observation really can be damaging, and quite frankly, if it's in isolation, that would be a nightmare. At least at LAX there is a silver lining experience that could come out of that work. 

12. Would you rather get married through an arranged marriage or spend the rest of your life being single and never dating anyone?

Arranged marriage. That may sound crazy, but there are at least some odds of liking the person you are set up with. Heck, it might even be a hit. Being single and never dating, really, never sharing life with anyone - that's absolutely zero odds. I'll take my chances with the arranged marriage.

13. Would you rather have the next year off at full pay or get paid double at your current job for the next year?

Paid double. I actually love my job, and to be paid double with the same vacation time would be fantastic. Plus, the extra money would give me so much more opportunities and financial support for options for my vacations. 

14. Would you rather eat three whole raw habanero peppers or perform CPR on a stranger?

CPR on stranger. At least I'm potentially saving a life, the worst, helping someone in dire need. What would be the point of eating raw habanero peppers? 

15. Would you rather live without TV for the rest of your life or give up coffee for good?

Give up coffee. I like coffee, but I also like tea. TV is essential for me in baseball season. Coffee is not worth that at all. Not even close. 

16. Would you rather give up your smartphone for two months or give up alcohol for a year?

Alcohol for a year. With my job, I survive on a smartphone. And personally, from my music, to blogs, to reading news, to whatever, my smartphone - much like everyone these days - is very essential. 

17. Would you rather give up Instagram forever or eat the same meal for the rest of your life?

Ummm, bye Instagram. I love ya, but I like food more. 

18. Would you rather not use email for a week or be hungover for four days?

Being hungover for four days sounds like hell. Really. I hate being hungover for a few minutes. I would give up e-mail for a week for sure. 

19. Would you rather win a free laptop or a trip to Hawaii?

Hahaha - hello Hawaii! I'll buy my own laptop, thanks. 

20. Would you rather eat roadkill for the rest of your life or have every person in the world sound like Gilbert Gottfried?

This is a rather weird one. Actually, seriously weird. I'll go with having everyone sound like Gilbert Gottfried. Sounds like a "them" problem. Give me something else to eat and enjoy rather than "roadkill"

Sunday Sundown Rundown - 9/18/22

3 Up 1.  Yvon Chouinard - Nothing says big baller like announcing you're donating your company's worth to the mission of fighting climate change. Sure, there are some tax benefits (let's not be silly), but that's still a pretty damn impressive thing to do. Wish we saw that more from billionaires.  2. Aaron Judge - Well, the big fella is on his way to breaking the record of 61 home runs (whether you think it's just the American League record or the in fact still the single-season home run record is up to you). I just hope he does it over the next two days at Yankee Stadium, on YES, with Michael Kay on the call. It'll be a damn shame if it happened on Apple TV where it happens in a vacuum and most fans will be unable to experience history. That would be awful for baseball.  3. How The Word is Passed - This is a selfish "Up" from me because I finally finished this book that has been on my list for a while - and it is a must-read for all. I'm a big

CM Punk's Press Conference Backlash - Hard to Root For

I've always found the pro wrestling press conference to be an interesting dichotomy of the essence of the art form. In an era where kayfabe is dead (or not what it used to be) and the lines are immensely blurred between real life and storyline, or at times, mixed in for engagement, interest, and controversy, the press conference schtick, and the pre-show round tables, sit in this odd space.   Does it live within the space of the pro wrestling world through the illustrious glory of kayfabe? Or is it a real, authentic, full-access medium to the real matters pertaining to the business of the product?  Maybe, I'm the only one being worked. Possibly.  As you can imagine, this is where my thoughts sit in regard to the now infamous CM Punk presser following AEW's Double or Nothing pay-per-view (or premium live event, if that's your vocabulary). I can't help but ask myself multiple times, "Why?" in response to the entire ordeal. And not in an intriguing way, but o

Durant Showed Us Who He Was

When people show you who they are, believe them.  That's what my thought process is reduced to regarding Kevin Durant, his trade request from the Brooklyn Nets, and well, everything else that surrounds the latest drama that has taken over the NBA (and in many ways, the sports world).  Kevin Durant is immensely talented. Superhuman in so many ways. If you see him in person (as I have many times at the Barclays Center as a Brooklyn Net, and once at the Staples Center as a young member of the Oklahoma City Thunder), you're simply in awe of his stature, his ability, and his grace on the court. It's the kind of aura that keeps you believing in the aura of pro sports, and the sheer exclusiveness of these human beings. It's in the same realm as LeBron James and Steph Curry, physical and ability marvels that go just beyond remarkable, existing in a realm of specialness that cannot be described other than comprehension with the eyes.  Kevin Durant is one of my favorite athletes

Sunday Sundown Rundown - 9/4/22

3 Up 1. Serena Williams - Well, the GOAT finally ran out of steam this weekend in her US Open loss to Ajila Tomljanovic. Williams made that last set all kinds of dramatic with her refusal to be put away. Not sure what else there is to say - she's one of the greatest athletes of all time. And if you've followed this blog, you know that she's been one of mine.  If this is it, thanks for the memories, Serena.  1A. Ajla Tomljanovic - I'm also giving Tomljanovic some MAJOR props as she handled being a part of this moment perfectly. From not giving into the moment and remaining competitive, to displaying amazing poise while being asked tough questions about Serena following a victory - her victory! How can you not be impressed by her? 2. Labor Day Weekend- While summer is unofficially over (why does summer have unofficial beginnings and end in Memorial Day?), I just felt like this Labor Day was needed for everyone. Summer, and the intense heat, provided a summer unlike any ot
