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.

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 - 4/10/22

3 Up 1. Ketanji Brown Jackson - The new Supreme Court Justice is a win for black and brown girls everywhere. Representation matters.  2. Women's College Basketball Ratings - I'm giving the women's tournament its due as it garnered the highest television ratings ever for the national championship game in eighteen years. And that was head-to-head with the Grammys! Spare me the "women's sports don't draw" tired narrative. Invest in women's sports, period.  3. Baseball Returns - Sure, the sport bothered fans over the winter with its ugly and insulting labor spat. However, it's back, and that's cool.  3 Down 1. Ukraine Images - Unfortunately, I had to put the ongoing acts in Ukraine back in the tops spot. Have you seen some of the images coming out of the country? For me, it was the image of parents writing children's information (i.e. names, details of eating habits, etc...) on their backs - on their backs! - in anticipation of being separated

Dome Pondering Movie Review: Amateur (2018)

What is it about? The recruiting and exploitation of a teenage basketball phenom expose the immoral undercurrent world of amateur sports and business.  Who is in it?  Michael Rainey Jr. - Terron Forte Jr.  Brian White - Vince Josh Charles - Coach Gaines

Sunday Sundown Rundown - 3/20/22

3 Up 1. Bismack Biyombo - I admit it, it's one week too late from when it really happened (and I forgot it last week), but the news somehow made the rounds this week as well, so I'm making it work. Nonetheless, Biyombo donated his entire $1.3M salary toward rebuilding a hospital in his hometown in Congo. That's the kind of action that is more than lip service - love it.  2. The Batman - I haven't seen it yet. Nonetheless, the new film on the favorite caped-crusader past $300M at the box office. That's pretty awesome.
