Would You Rather: Questions 81-90


81. Would you rather be 4'5" or 7'7"?

I would prefer to be 7'7". On this weird spectrum, I'm already used to being taller than the average person. I can deal with the extreme height. It'll be nice to play some pick up basketball. 

82. Would you rather be tall and fat, or short and well built?

Tall and fat. I can always lose the weight. Plus, short and jacked dudes often have to fight the stigma of being jerks on first appearance. 

83. Would you rather be poor and work at a job you love, or rich and a job you hate?

Poor and work at a job you love. Take it from someone who has their dream job, the sense of purpose and peace of mind is indeed worth much. 

84. Would you rather go through life unable to answer any questions, or unable to ask any questions?

I would hate to not be able to ask any questions. After all, that is literally what I do everyday. Life doesn't always give us the answers, and sometimes, there are no answers. But for me, pondering these mysteries are what make this race called life so wonderful. Sounds cheesy, but eh, sue me. 

85. Would you rather be only able to whisper or shout everything you speak?

Whisper. I really don't like attention. And honestly, we all know that one person who doesn't have volume control over their voice. No one likes that person. Especially, in public places. 

86. Would you rather go without the internet or without your car for a month?

I live in New York City. While I love my car. I can get by without a car for a month. Now the internet, probably not. Can anyone in today's world? 

Weird, though - this question now has me thinking - is the internet more valuable to us that having access to a car? Holy crap. Times sure have changed. 

87. Would you rather sit all day or stand all day?

Stand all day. I despise sitting all day. Again, It's why I love my job. I don't like office days though - blah. 

88. Would you rather go to jail for one year, or live in your car for one year?

I've read way too many books on prison, and memoirs of prisoners. NO THANK YOU on any prison option. I'll live in my car. 

89. Would you rather be stuck in a state-of-the-art facility with someone you hate, or stuck in your own house alone?

Stuck in my house alone. No facility is worth the annoyance to come with that situation. 

90. Would you rather be a genius in a world of morons, or a moron in a world of geniuses?

Wow. This is a REALLY good question. I'm seriously torn. Talk about a philosophical tug-of-war here. I am going to go with a genius in a world of morons. They won't know you're a genius though, that's the tragedy.

Sunday Sundown Rundown - 10/10/21

3 Up 1. Moderna Vaccine to Low Income Nations - In a world where the idea of "pandemic" now feels like a state of mind or the privilege of belief, Moderna has decided to aim its efforts in getting at least 1 billion doses to low-income countries the COVID vaccine. I'll save the "vaccine" chat for another time - but this is pretty awesome by Moderna. And oh yeah, highly needed.  2. Candace Parker and Diana Taurasi - Two absolute legends of the WNBA had some legacy-cementing moments this week. Parker lead her hometown Chicago Sky into the WNBA finals, and Taurasi, was named the GOAT of the WNBA by fans. Because well, she is. Congrats to both.  3. Netlfix's On My Block - For the second week in a row I'm putting a personal - and admittedly, biased - selection in the "Up" section. One of my favorite shows by Netflix, On My Block , released its fourth and final season, and yes, I binged it on my daily commute home. Gonna miss the crew from Freeridge.

CM Punk's Return - Perfect Timing for the Symbol of Anti-WWE

Looooooooook in my eyes, what do you see?! The lyrics to Cult of Personality, especially that first bar,  never felt so fitting for CM Punk as it did last night.  For the most part, everything that is CM Punk's return to wrestling last night at AEW Rampage ties directly into my latest thoughts on pro wrestling - the company is making it must-see destination television, an element desperately needed from pro wrestling.  Last night was incredible as again, it was another moment that made wrestling feel alive - with a wild and energetic pulse. It was one of the coolest moments in pro wrestling that you knew was coming, expected, anticipated, and it was everything and more. Again, MUST-SEE television. That's hard to do.  For me, it wasn't just Punk's return to pro wrestling, but the mere presence and voice of his inclusion in today's space. We know that Punk can deliver on the microphone - probably his best and most signature attribute. We also know that yes, he can

The Pondering 10 - Yankees Fandom Annoyance

I'm a New York Yankees fan. If you haven't gotten that already from this blog, then the surprise declaration gives you a small set up for this latest Pondering 10 post. Yes, the Yankees are having a challenging year, and there are so many discussions and breakdowns that can be had that are productive, beneficial, and enlightening to why this season is unfolding the way it is.  You know what is not helpful? Yankee fans antics. Ironic, huh? I've long since realized that I'm associated with this fan base than can be overbearing and at times, super annoying. However, none more so than this year. Listening to sports radio, Yankees Twitter, and talking-head television has made that more clear than ever before.  With that said, here is my Pondering 10 on my Yankees Fandom Annoyance:

Shoulda, Woulda - Ehhh: Thoughts on the Ending to the 2021 Yankees Season

I've waited to write this post. After all, it's been a tremendously emotional season...well, for the fan base that is.  For me, everything about this year's Yankees playoff run - or exit - was expected. This team, was as complex and complicated of a team as we've seen in a long time. Bad? No, I wouldn't say that. And I know that may trigger some in the fan base - but bad teams just don't make the playoffs in baseball. However, this team was incredibly flawed - to a glaring fault. Rooted deep, deep, deep in a philosophy that currently drives the organization and has now proven to be fruitless - and even more so year after year.  So no, I never expected this team to do much other than possibly surprise me with a deep playoff run. We've seen glimpses of this team's conflicting identity by running the bases, moving runners, getting timely hits, and looking somewhat threatening to the rest of the league. And yet, we've seen this team play terrible defense
