So MarcM1098 is now in the limelight... greet him one and all and ask away!
As this is the new year and we survived the Mayan 'end of the world', have fun!!!


Guidelines for interviewing:

Only five questions per post - and you aren't able to ask more questions until your five have been answered. This is to avoid huge lists of questions being put to the interviewee making answering them a daunting task. It should also improve the quality of the questions and the answers.

1) How does it feel to be in the limelight?
I've always been somewhat shy, so I'm a little nervous, but also excited; you'll have to pry information out of me.

2) Married? If so how Long?
Happily married for 14 years.

3) Based on #2 any children & how many?
Two boys, both full of energy, which keeps me busy.

4) What brought you to Braingle?
I was looking through my Yahoo! page, and choosing which news headlines I wanted to see. Under one of the sections I found a brain teaser site, Braingle. I started doing the teasers, but actually became hooked on Beanstalk.

5) Any Hobbies?
Origami, stamp/coin collecting, and playing with Lego. I kept all my Lego from when I was a child, and now both my boys are into it, so I get a chance to play again.

Hi Harry,

1. What's your ethnicity?
I am a mix of mostly Irish and German.

2. Coolest part about being Canadian?
It's hard to pick any one thing, just being Canadian is cool
I love our sense of humour (and our spelling), our standard of living and health care, and the great outdoors in every season: beaches in summer, amazing fall colours, snow in winter, flowers in spring.


3. Which political party do you tend to support?
I lean to the Conservative right.

4. What would be the title of your autobiography?
Trying to Focus

5. What would be the first sentence of your autobiography?
One day I was given a tremendous gift, the gift of life; we all have this gift, but what are we to do with it; what is worth spending a life on?

1. If the moon were a chocolate chip cookie, would you eat it?
I've always wanted to travel in space, and chocolate chip cookies are my favourite; assuming the cookie was moon-sized, I would travel there and eat some of it, but still leave enough for others to enjoy too.

2. What's your favorite currently running TV show?
Murdoch Mysteries - it's a Canadian drama set in the 1890s. Murdoch invents many technologies we use today, such as a metal detector, fingerprinting, sonar, ... and meets many historic characters such as Arthur Conan Doyle, Winston Churchill, Nikola Tesla, ...

3. If you had to choose between fighting a shark or fighting a dinosaur, which would you pick?
I would choose a dinosaur; I have enough trouble keeping myself afloat that I couldn't fight and swim at the same time.

4. What's the next movie coming out that you are most excited for?
Star Trek Into Darkness - I am a big fan of Star Trek TOS and TNG.

5. What is your favorite color?
My favourite colour is purple.

Hi Mark.

1: Whats your favourite braingle memory.

2: Have you ever/would you consider playing werewolf or who's the boss games.

3: What would you consider to be your dream job.

4: Whats your favourite animal and why.

5: what's your favourite movie


Did you know: that the ocean holds nearly 20 million tons of gold but most of it is diluted. Each liter of seawater contains about 13 billionths of a gram. So there is enough gold on the sea floor to put 9 pounds in every pocket on Earth.

1: Whats your favourite braingle memory.
My favourite memories are being creative - at first it was making Beanstalk levels that look like something:
school bus, hare, apple logo, dollar sign, board games series - backgammon, arcade games series - tetris, flag series - UK, ...
but my favourite memory was writing my Confusion Abounded riddle.


2: Have you ever/would you consider playing werewolf or who's the boss games.
I have played them both more than 20 times (I have the award for both), but don't have the time anymore to be active enough for those games.

3: What would you consider to be your dream job.
Being an astronaut sounds fun, especially with Chris Hadfield up there right now, but I think it would be too lonely. So I would have to say someone who designs Lego sets, then you can play and work at the same time.

4: Whats your favourite animal and why.
I would have to say a rabbit, they are just so cute and make great pets.

5: what's your favourite movie
I enjoyed the entire Star Trek series. I think The Wrath of Khan was my favourite. I'm really looking forward to Into Darkness coming out next month.
