    How the hell do I always end up at the top of page 2?
    I have a device that can access the total knowledge of man. I use it to look at pictures of cats and argue with strangers.

    At least you can convince the Americans that it's true.

    Fame:

    • I was interviewed on the local news in elementary school, talking about the new playground they built. The anchors had a fun time when I said it was "Rad".

    • I was on the Disney Channel, interviewed when Al Gore was talking about the environment (back in the Clinton/Gore era). Never got the meet the VP, though

    • I was a news anchor for a local highschool news thing called "High School Beat" Junior year in highschool.

    • I am on 0:16 on the music video for Smashmouth "Then the Morning Comes".

    • When I was bodybuilding, I won "Mr. Santa Cruz".

    • I have two US design patents for a Karaoke Machine and microphone, that won numerous design awards, and was featured as giveaways on shows like the Rosie O'Donnell Show and other daytime shows.

    • I was featured in my local paper (Santa Cruz Sentinel) for my design success.

    • I produced, directed and wrote an animated cartoon show (that never got picked up - but I shopped it around for years)

    • I started a local SuperMoto MC that was featured in a motorcycle rag. It went viral, and "chapters" went as far as Indonesia.

    Shame:

    My 30's have been full-of-fail, missed opportunities and "almost made it" type scenarios. With all the fun and interesting stuff that's happened to me before, I'm a little disappointed with what has become of me. Decisions have been made out of necessity rather than love passion - except getting married. The repercussions of taking the creative risks I took before are too great to attempt.

    I'm hoping my 40's will be better, but I doubt it. I was looking forward to raising a family - but that's gone.

    Adopt? You seem to be pretty passionate about family and having your own to raise.

    My 40s have been my "missed opportunity" years. I was kickin' it in the ass in my 30s. My 50s have to get better or I'll be living in my car down by the river by the time I'm 60.

    I watched those saturn V rockets take off as a kid. They would make the water in the intracostal waterway ripple about 10 miles from the pad.

    Me too! I grew up in Orlando. I remember as a little kid, we could see them pretty good on the clear nights when they did night launches.

    We drove over to the coast to watch a night shuttle launch once. I'm glad we did, cool memory.

    Hummm... Let's see if I can remember shjt I did those past 20 years...

    -Been a spokesperson for Montreal's scholar board to a national congress.

    -Won 2008 MD state Rockfish fishing tournament.

    -Bulleye on my first shot ever at 100 yards with a 30-06.

    -Never broke any bones or had serious medical issues due to accidents or non-natural causes.

    -I can rock a bike that weight 3/8 of my own weight. And climb it up 1000ft high.

    -I can do 10+ squats with someone heavier than me on my back.

    -I can eat as many as 5 full sized meals in a day when I get a good ride and still be hungry. And of course never put weight on, no matter what.

    -If I keep only my right eye open, I can see triple. It's called monocular diplopia and it's very rare to happen when you're young and have a 20/20 vision. I might get an entry in the medical books a some point for this.

    -I can pick almost any locks.

    -After a potentially deadly crash OTB where I landed on top of my head, the only injury was a scar on my right elbow in the shape of a music note. No neck or head pain at all.

    -A few years ago, I was one of the most known and top player of FPS online, and had many gaming clans offering me high position in their ranks. I think I'm like #2 in two of them and I had my own tactical squad that was very controversial because I recruited many high players from different clans and we were just kickin' ass everywhere

    -Many persons have qualified me as being one of the most handsome guy they ever met, and a few of them were actually my bosses and teachers. Others simply say I'm one of the most interesting man out there. At least I'm not the one who claim it

    -I did 50km as a mechanic volunteer for a cycling event on a big 40lbs DH bike with all the tools, food and supplies last June, and managed to start from the end of the peleton and finish about 45 minutes ahead of other riders who left before me, even with many stops for repairs and help. My ass was in a world of pain, but I was smiling every single feet of the 30 miles.

    -I can chop down huge logs with a hatchet just for the fun of it.

    And btw there is not a single state in Canada, it's all provinces and territories

    Oh, and like SlowerJoe, I can also pick up pretty much anything with my toes, from a screwdriver to a sheet of paper.

    Shame: ex-banker

    Fame: stole some of the best talent for my clients as a renowned headhunter in Euro-zone.

    Grew up in Qatar & was on a TV quizz show.

    Met Charles & Diana visiting my school eons ago

    Saw Charles again visiting my university

    Saw Diana once more passing by in her car during traffic, I waved her a kiss! She smiled

    Did a PostGrad averaging A's without a undergrad as I persuaded the school I would excel. Always been precocious.
