Brian Clark is indeed an effective copywriter as he knew just how to hook me into participating in this “chain blog” of “five things you didn’t know” about me:

  1. For five years after college I wrote fiction and payed the bills by teaching test prep courses until I discovered that I wasn’t very good at fiction writing — I’m a bit of a slow learner. But I can get a perfect score on the LSAT even though I never for a moment considered going to law school.

  2. I nearly broke my neck falling down a flight of stairs last year — I did manage to break my both my 5th metatarsal and my lateral malleolus — something my orthopedist said was nearly impossible to do.

  3. The highlight of my sporting career was playing on the little league all-star team in 5th grade — my hand-eye coordination has steadily declined since then.

  4. If I had any musical talent I would have been a guitar player. I do play the guitar but badly. (It’s that coordination thing again.)

  5. People I’ve never met often tell me that I look like someone they know.

Now I’m supposed to peer pressure five other people into participating: Mathew Ingram, Rex Hammock, Max Kalehoff, Stowe Boyd, Noah Brier
