Would You Rather: Questions 41-50


41. Would you rather have free Starbucks for a year or free iTunes for a year? 

Call me crazy, but I am going with free Starbucks for a year. Free ITunes sounds great, but I already have a Spotify account that I already enjoy tremendously. Plus, I live in NYC, and there is a Starbucks like every ten feet. 

42. Would you rather be a ninja or a wizard? 

Ninja! Way cooler, and way more fun. I've seen my wife watch Harry Potter. No offense, not really moved by being a wizard, unless, it's the opportunity to play pro basketball in Washington. 

43. Would you rather go deaf in one ear or only be allowed to use the internet one hour per day?

This is tough, but I am going to go with going deaf in one ear. The internet is so essential in today's world, especially in how I consume information and of course, explore one of my favorite hobbies in contributing to this little blog.

44. Would you rather only wear 80's clothes or only 80's hairstyles? 

80's hairstyles. Bad ass and eccentric. 80's clothes all of the time makes you look weird and a little off the rocker to others who see you daily. 

45. Would you rather be able to listen to any song with your mind, or be able to watch your dreams on your television?

I prefer to listen to any song in my mind. A weird mental Spotify would be fantastic. Watching my dreams on television really doesn't move me. Blah. Eh. 

46. Would you rather live in a five star prison, or the poorest country in the world? 

Give me freedom over everything. Any prison, no matter how nice, is just that, prison. 

47. Would you rather always know when someone is lying, or always get away with lying? 

Always knowing when someone is lying would be absolutely fantastic. Just utterly fantastic! Think about all of the ways you can mess with people and catch them in their lies. Or how about the opportunity to make life decisions based on knowing the truth in a situation? So yeah, guess which one I am going with? 

48. Would you rather be always overdressed or always underdressed? 

Underdressed. Wayyyyyy more comfortable, and produces and atmosphere to conform more often that being formal. 

49. Would you rather be the opposite gender for a day, or be a kid again for a day? 

Be a kid again. I'm not sure I have any desire to be a woman for a day, plus, I would love to have the responsibilities and free mindset of a kid for one day. 

50. Would you rather have the opportunity to explore all of earth, or have the opportunity to go to space? 

This is a really, really good one. I would go with exploring earth. While space is an extremely rare opportunity, exploring the entire world is something I truly enjoy, and would produce multiple experiences within that option.

Sunday Sundown Rundown - 5/22/22

3 Up 1. NY Times Investigative Series on Haiti - The history of Haiti is such a complex (and unfortunate) one. Really, it's a story that goes untold, specifically for the context of how the country is viewed. From being forced to pay operations to enslavers (yeah, you read that right), to so many other historical setbacks - including American interventions - the nation's history is so well laid out in this latest NY Times piece. I urge you to give it a read.  2. Equal Pay for US Women's Soccer Team - Kudos to US Soccer on coming around to giving the USWNT their due - equal pay for prize money from the World Cup. It's a start, and more importantly, it's a push forward for women's sports that do in fact push the needle in comparison, or more so, to their male counterparts.  3. Kate McKinnon - Random "UP" here, but I'm doing it anyway...A few SNL usuals are rumored to be walking away, including Kate McKinnon. The show obviously doesn't carry the

Sunday Sundown Rundown - 5/15/22

3 Up 1. California Church Heroes - It's soooooooo weird that the top spot is a result of something so horrific as our ongoing domestic terrorism problem of mass shootings. Still, the courage shown by the five members who stopped the shooter deserves it. Those individuals tackled the shooter and tied him up with an electric cord, while wounded.  It's so tough to fathom that those possibilities are within the realm of your Sunday worship, within the sanctity of your church.  But such is America... 2. Olivia Rodrigo & Drake - Rodrigo continues to reap rewards on an excellent album in 2021 as she topped the Billboard Music Awards with seven awards. There was also Drake who I'm beginning to sense we won't really appreciate his body of work until he's near the end of his career. But yeah, Drake poured in a few more for the legacy debates and discussions.

Celebrating 37 with Gratitude

I sit here quite unsure how to celebrate a birthday this year - though, it's not something I've always done. I leave that to my wife and now, my son, to create that spectacle that I'm unable to drum up. However, I've always had some reflection on each year, and each new "age" or trip around the sun completed. Thirty-seven successful trips, and on this day, today, my birthday, I just can't seem to find the words that resonate with how I feel, or simply, to feel.  For starters, there is the idea that forever, my birthday, May 25th, will always be linked with the death of George Floyd. That's heavy enough. And then there is this year, just yesterday, the horrific events of the school shooting in Uvalde, Texas. That is the only thing really at the center of my thoughts, emotions, and concerns. It's challenging to pull myself out to be a focus under the current climate.  But if I tried to mesh the feelings of the current times as well as look inward,
