My second class at Brock there was a guy in a wheelchair. Super bright guy too. I told everyone.

Went for Business, concentrated in Marketing, and in advertising.

I used to work in the manufacturing industry but was a victim of the economic collapse which wound up a bit a of a blessing in disguise. As a result I enrolled back in school and will be studying Economics @ UofT. I'm currently working at the head office of a large insurance company which is 5 minutes from home and will be try attempt to juggle school and work this year. In the period between my lay-off and enrollment back in school I did a bit of seasonal work for the Government (looks good on the resume) and worked a bit of retail (hated it!).

PS, really happy to see the "By the Numbers" sub-forum. With a little bit of background in Math over the next few years I plan on becoming an active member of that forum.

Not to sound insensitive or an ass, but this gave me a slightly ironic laugh.


As for me, Production manager for an experiential marketing company (events, concerts, promos, research the whole shbang). Great job, tons of perks and fun travel.

Don't forget the follow up of "If you can walk and talk faster you can go to MacMaster"

Something to do with the dye in red smarties I heard and instead of trying to deal with the problem, McDonalds is just going to abolish the smartie McFlurry's. Caramel + Golden Oreo was my favourite combo.

Simple. I have been playing since I was 3. I am about to turn 49. I played my whole life. I played semi pro in Germany for EHC Freibourg and that was from '89 to '92.

Was alive when we last won the cup. I was 4.

I still play multi sports to stay in shape. I play lots of soccer, badminton, football and basketball. I cycle also.

I have also coached at every level for 22 years. I am certified level "advanced".

Go check out my profile pics.

Not too weird. I have been around computers my whole life and even took a hiatus and worked for Microsoft for a short time.

I'm an old nerd now that used to be a jock. I download hundreds of movies monthly, (don't tell anyone), all my movies are put on hard drives and flash drives., I haven't burned a disk in 2 years. I have my big screen that I can watch anything right off my hard drives.

What I have a hard time getting my head around is how silicone chips work. I am used to moving parts and can figure it out.

23 years in the Armed Forces as a communicator/IT. Can retire at anytime but then again, why would I? Money's good and I still haven't seen the whole world yet. Besides, I'm on the 30/30 plan now. 30 Seconds to piss me off, 30 days to get out.
