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.

Impact Wrestling Emergence 2022 Review: "...Just Solid - So Freakin' Solid."

It probably won't come as a shock to anyone who follows this blog that I will say the following statement: Impact Wrestling may just be the most consistently entertaining and fresh - very important adjective here! - wrestling product that I've engaged with over the past two years. It's just always there, as solid as it can be. No real highs, or lows that push me away as a fan - just good, consistent, thorough, solid pro wrestling enjoyment.  Now, make no mistake about it, over the past summer, I found myself a whopping thirteen weeks behind this solid product in favor of the still new (and intriguing) AEW product and my on-again-off-again hope in the WWE due to nostalgia. However, trusty-work-from-home days have allowed me to binge watch (and work, of course) and it certainly opened my eyes to a new experience when it came to wrestling. Removal from the episodic style habit, and the feel of episodes bridging together seamlessly.  Also, remove from the internet culture of we

5 Thoughts on Pujols Hitting 700

It almost feels like the negative vitriol that surrounded Major League Baseball and its labor issues have dissipated into an air of forgetfulness and forgiveness. A season that has brought us old-school lore with the chasing of historical numbers by way of Aaron Judge and Albert Pujols, and the likes of a modern-day Babe Ruth, in another dominant season by Shohei Ohtani, would ultimately do that. Sprinkle in some amazing rookies on the rise, and all of sudden it's, what did I say about baseball's treatment of fans? It's been some season... In this post, I want to focus on Albert Pujols...the "King", the "Machine", one of the greatest ever. After hitting a historic 700th Home Run ( by the way, I definitely predicted that back in March  - just humble-bragging a bit), I wanted to drop five (fitting, yeah?) thoughts on Albert Pujols:  GREATEST EVER?! - Pujols' career often feels like the Angels' years were some sort of nightmare or a bad edition in a

Sunday Sundown Rundown - 9/25/22

3  Up 1. Albert Pujols - 700 homeruns is insane. Even through a generation of steroids, the number is incredibly exclusive (sans, you know, Bonds). So much props to Pujols who literally puts himself in some rarified discussions among the game's greatest.  Here are some quick thoughts from yours truly on Pujols hitting 700 .  2. PATHFINDER - The fight against cancer just got a smidge better. GRAIL announced results from their PATHFINDER study that may have found ways to provide early detection screening to significantly enhance the discovery of cancer well before symptoms begin.  I accidentally ran into this story - why isn't this more headline news? SMH.  3. Pandemic Over? - The World Health Organization (remember them, before everyone suddenly became public health experts) described COVID as an "acute global emergency". Going even further, announced that 20M global deaths were avoided last year due to vaccines. Just outright amazing.  3 Down 1. Brett Favre - No resp

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.
