Would You Rather: Questions 181-190


It's been a while since I've done one of these - three years in fact. Yes, three years! Jumping back into the wacky world of these questions, and stimulating some ponders along the way...

181. Would you rather the aliens that make first contact be robotic or organic? 

Well, this is a weird one. I'll go organic as it feels there would be more of an opportunity to connect as living beings. Robots just sound evil at the core - showing no compassion or empathy one what would likely be an awkward initial encounter. 

182. Would you rather lose the ability to read or lose the ability to speak?

Easily lose the ability to speak. I'm not sure I even want to talk to people all that much anymore - I'm kidding, sort of. Losing the ability to read gives up too much of yourself, and the ability to function independently. 

183. Would you rather have a golden voice or a silver tongue?

Golden voice. Give me the ability to sing, perform, and be a rock star. A silver tongue is nice, and likely practical, but I'm dreaming big. 

184. Would you rather be covered in fur or covered in scales?

Ahhhh, covered in fur? Yeah, fur. Scales are for reptiles, and while it's cool, those are definitely not my thing. 

185. Would you rather be in jail for a year or lose a year off your life?

Take a year off my life. Just take it...

186. Would you rather always be 10 minutes late or always be 20 minutes early?

20 minutes early. Because I typically find myself running right on time, or likely, ten minutes late. 

Being on time in a big way is fine. No big deal. 

187. Would you rather have one real get-out-of-jail-free card or a key that opens any door?

Now this is going to sound really bad, but the get-out-of-jail-free card sounds useful. I'm not sure I would care to open doors...or that it sounds all that useful. 

188. Would you rather know the history of every object you touch or be able to talk to animals?

Wikipedia exists. I rather go down a rabbit hole of research with my extra twenty minutes of showing up early. 

Talking to animals? That'll be cool. 

189. Would you rather have all traffic lights you approach be green or never have to stand in line again?

Give me green lights all the way. Anyone who understands driving in the NYC Metro area would appreciate that. I'm cool with standing in line. 

But green lights all the way - that's just a miracle. 

190. Would you rather spend the rest of your life with a sailboat as your home or an RV as your home?

Life on a sailboat won't be my thing. At sea, forever? Nope. 

Life on the road in a badass RV - that's just not only an easy decision on this question, but sounds like a really cool life to live.

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!"

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
