Would You Rather: Questions 151-160

In this latest edition of Would You Rather, yours truly goes with a classic Harry Potter theme courtesy of those fine folks at Buzzfeed

151. Would you rather drink butter beer or pumpkin juice? 

The butter beer option is highly intriguing. But despite the fictional world, the rationale of it sounds highly concerning. Like, butter beer? I don't know. Yeah, pumpkin juice just sounds like a good, normal, go-to for muggles. However, I'm still highly intrigued by butter beer, but only in a fictional Harry Potter world, I guess.  

152. Would you rather learn to apparate or become an anigimus? 

This is easy. Give me the ability to apparate. That's cool. I really don't have any interest in being any type of animal. Not at all. I'll pass. 

153. Would you rather stay the summer with the Malfoys or Dursleys? 

Oooooh, this is a good one! Stay with me on this, but I would choose the Malfoys. I really believe they're misunderstood. There needs to be a 60-Minutes expose on the real Malfoys, and it likely will show they were held beyond their will in servitude to Voldemort. All of the Malfoys just felt fake in their devotion to the Death Eaters. So yeah, I'm going with the Malfoys. I'll be looking to get the real scoop on them. 

The Dursleys just felt like a fine family who were just a casualty of the muggle/wizard intersection. Nothing of interest there for me. 

155. Would you rather be one of the Hogwarts paintings or one of the Hogwarts ghosts?

The ghost thing would be weird. I can't imagine the countless explanations Myrtle the Ghost had to engage in. Especially, in the bathroom. Just weird. Being a painting would be cool - I see it as being trapped in a really good memory forever, while still have a window to the current world. 

156. Would you rather be a seeker or beater in Quidditch? 

Defense wins championships. Give me the beater spot. Especially in a sport where it seems so easy to score. 

157. Would you rather have the resurrection stone or the invisibility cloak? 

The Invisibility cloak for sure. There is just something really cool about it that I can't explain. 

158. Would you rather betray Dumbledore or become a Death Eater? 

Betray Dumbledore. I never trusted him to begin with, and well, he ends up betraying you, anyway. Might as well beat him to it. The Death Eater is a cool name...I'd probably hang with the Malfoys. 

160. Would you rather have Dolores Umbridge or Voldemort as your neighbor?

Give me Voldemort as my neighbor. Delores Umbridge just seems like the kind of lady who will ring my doorbell because some of the leaves from a tree rooted on my property fell in her yard. 

Sure, Voldemort would be up to shady shit, but you know, it's Voldemort. I see myself waiving to Voldemort and his group from my backyard thinking, oh, it's just Voldemort and the Death Eaters plotting to get Harry. I'd probably invite him over to the BBQ - mellow out that anger a bit with a burger - maybe a Volde-burger. We'll make a few Death Eater jokes while chowing on some macaroni salad - you know, the usual of living next door to a Wizard Terrorist. 

I just realized from these questions how much sympathy I have for the Death Eaters. 

161. Would you rather wizards be real and never find out because you were a muggle, or that everything about Harry Potter was fiction? 

The thought of Harry Potter being real, and a real person being that bad of a friend to those who are helping him not get killed has to remain fiction. It just has to. I couldn't take that person being true.

WWE Wrestlemania XL Review: "I absolutely loved this Wrestlemania"

It's easy to get caught up and become a prisoner of the moment. Especially in today's world where the latest moment is ostracized, super-analyzed, and hyperbolized - it's very much the clickbait, social media, microwave society we live in.  Yet, even after acknowledging that (as well as my Tribal Chief, of course), I still come to this feeling that Wrestlemania XL is one of the best Wrestlemania's, ever.  Yes, ever!  I don't need Triple H's metrics and benchmarks to influence me. No, no, no! In terms of hype, storylines, payoffs, match quality, and just overall fun - this entire weekend was amazing.  I'm slightly skewed in my preference as well. This was my son's first Wrestlemania as a pro wrestling fan. Having him at my side cheering on his favorites, getting caught up in the drama, and even crying at the end of the night because his Tribal Chief lost to "that no good Cody" added to the overall appreciation of the event.  So yeah, I have some

DP Review of the Alternate Knicks Orange Jersey

One of the good aspects about having a blog and being truthful and honest about it, is the hindsight thought process it provides. DP devotees already know how much I love my New York Knicks, and how excited I was about their new jerseys last year. It was a new look that was desperately needed ( DP Review On Knicks New Uniforms ).  In reviewing those jerseys last year, I had the following comments in regards to then-rumors regarding the addition of an alternative orange jersey for the Knicks and overall NBA changes to the Christmas Day special jerseys:  "As long as we do not add an "alternative jersey" (I read rumors of an orange one - woof!) (and the league-wide Spanish jerseys are fine). And please, please - PLEASE - let's finally do away with the awful green jerseys we feel the need to wear on Christmas and St. Patrick's day! Pretty please!"
