I authored and illustrated several children's books. I also invented and designed the Safer Grip which was a fancy glass suction cup device, along with a bunch of baby items.

As an industrial designer I've helped a lot of products get to market. The way it works, you have an idea for a product. You go to an ID and they make it pretty and easy to manufacture. You take the pretty drawings to a trade show and convince some company to manufacture your idea. It helps to have a beautiful woman by your side during the sales pitch.
 
In 6th grade, last day of school I pulled the school fire alarm. I have friends from back then who still bring it up.
 
I was 3rd place top drag racer in Canada in 2006.
 
Won a drag race (7 rounds) with the slowest car in the field.....but big deal. Did lots of cool stuff over the years but not going to pound my chest about it. The drag race was cool because the guy I beat in the final round worked at the plant that I did and the area he worked in was full of Mopar guys and he had a Chevy with a small block with a blower and screwed up in all kinds of ways and caught flack from the guys he worked with. Didn't really like the flack he got but it was kinda funny being beat by the slowest car out there that night.....
 
My claim to fame could be, I've never talked about most of my accomplishments (or struggles) on the internet....and I prefer to keep it that way.
Just for the sake of this thread though, I will share the fact that back in my rock n' roll days I had sƩx with four girls at the same time one night...and they weren't even ugly! Or...at least I wanted to? Oh the good ol' days.....

I had a couple fantastic ideas...only to find somebody else came up with them before I did.

When I was working the evening shift I stopped into a local cafeteria on my way to work several days of the week and before long was getting to know some of the wait staff and.....next thing I know I'm being past around to the friends of friends at that cafeteria. It ended up being 4 different women with most of them being quite crazy! Claim to fame.....not really lol
 
I won the all-City youth checkers tournament when I was about 8 or 9. It's been down hill ever since...
