Would You Rather: Questions 141-150

141. Would you rather Have a dog with a cat’s personality or a cat with a dog’s personality?

I think I would have to go with a Cat with a dog's personality. It surely would freak people out, but there is a reason people are specifically cat-people or dog-people. I think I'm closer to a dog person. Give me the Cat that is quick, nimble, and is friendly. 

142. If you were reborn in a new life, would you rather be alive in the past or future?

The future. That is super easy. For people of color, it only gets better. Why would I want to go back in time? 

143. Would you rather eat no candy at Halloween or no turkey at Thanksgiving?

No candy on Halloween is perfectly fine for me. I've never big huge on Halloween, and really, I'm not a big Candy fan. So yeah, I'll save the candy on October (like I usually do, anyway) and give me a big juicy Turkey on Thanksgiving. 

144. Would you rather be the funniest person in the room or the most intelligent? 

I prefer being the most intelligent. I've never been big on being the center of attention nor have I ever been one to want that kind of attention. Give me the smarts every day. I'll make all types of smart jokes that will only entertain me. Muahaha! But seriously, I would...

145. Would you rather lose the ability to lie or believe everything you’re told?

Lose the ability to lie. Believing everything I'm told would just make me a pawn. 

146. Would you rather be free or be totally safe?

I would rather be free. There is a thrill to life that is an essential component of freedom. Being completely safe in life is no way to live. No risks? Are you even living? 

147. Would you rather eat shit that tasted like chocolate, or eat chocolate that tasted like crap?

This is one of the funniest questions to have come about. It's so twisted. With that said, give me the shit that tastes like chocolate. Because at least I can say it tastes good. I would definitely shovel that in my mouth in private though. Eating shit in person and having to convince people it tastes like chocolate is going to be super difficult. 

148. Would you rather look 10 years older from the neck up, or the neck down?

Another odd one. Considering that I've always been told I look and appear much old that I am, I would say from the neck up. Although, this question, regardless of the answer, will surely mess with onlookers at a beach. 

149. Would you rather be extremely underweight or extremely overweight?

Overweight. There is always a cool redemption story there. Being underweight typically is connected to more serious health and lifestyle concerns. 

150. Would you rather experience the beginning of planet earth or the end of planet earth?

The beginning. That would be really cool. 

The end sounds like something I rather not be present for.

2024 NBA All-Star Weekend Thoughts

There's something wrong with the All-Star Game.  Yeah, we've definitely had this conversation before. Expect to pick up this very discussion (again) in July when Major League Baseball has their version in the "Mid-Summer Classic" when it is the ONLY current topic to bounce around in the stratosphere of sports discourse.  What's wrong with the All-Star Game?!  I'm not dismissing the obvious - yes, the NBA All-Star Game is very much at an alarming point of necessary refinement and change - evaluation is needed. What we saw on Sunday night was not disappointing, but outright embarrassing. Also yes, gone are the days when the game flooded your television screen at a respectable 6:30pm on NBC, and you were wowed by the athleticism and star power of the first half of the game, and treated to what felt like the world's best players playing pickup basketball on the grandest stage.  Now? Not so much. So yeah, we got the message. The outrage - and shock TV and hot t

Dome Pondering Movie Review: Hustle (2022)

What is it about? A long-time scout, Stanley Sugarman, grinds out the life of an NBA scout and the politics of the NBA by taking a chance on a prospect he believes in to change both of their lives.  Who is in it? Adam Sandler - Stanley Sugarman Juancho Hernangomez - Bo Cruz Queen Latifah - Teresa Sugarman Favorite Scene:   Kermit and Bo line up at center court and Kermit begins the trash talk to get inside of Bo's head, eventually taking him off his game.  Favorite Quote:   "I'll say one last inspirational thing to you: they can't kill you if you're already dead." Review:  Hustle sat on "My List" on my Netflix account for quite a long time. Parked on the couch in the middle of the night with a newborn, and jonesing for some hoops, I dove in on what I read (and heard from others) was a "really good film". I'll give away the suspense, I thought Hustle was decent. It felt too cliche and had little depth, but still, a really good film.  The
