What is your first name? My first name is Jack.
What is your occupation? I am a student.
How did you discover Answers.com?
My teacher gave me an assignment to do research on the characteristics of the crab. When I asked a question in Google for the assignment, the first search result was a link to Answers.com. I thank my teacher for ‘helping’ me to discover Answers.com.
What enticed you to join our community?
I love to help people and thought that Answers.com was a good way to do this by answering other people’s questions. WikiAnswers was so addicting that wherever I went, I was thinking about Answers.com all the time, thus I joined.
What is your favorite thing to do on Answers.com?
I like doing everything on the site and it’s a lot of fun. If I had to choose one thing, it would be categorising questions.
If you were inviting someone to join Answers.com, what reason would you give that person to become a part of our community?
Well, the people on the site are very nice and you also get to learn new things in areas that you may be interested in.
If you had three wishes, what would you wish for?
Firstly, I would wish for world peace because I feel that peace is very important and some places in the world are still in much chaos. Secondly, I would wish that I could have autographs from every famous person that I like because then I can show them off to all my friends! Finally, I wish that I could have tons of money! Even though money isn’t everything in the world, it can still get you (and me) some awesome stuff, don’t you agree?
Do you view the glass ‘half full’ or ‘half empty’?
I view it as both. It’s ‘half full’ because it shows that I have made progress and should be happy about that; it’s ‘half empty’ because it shows that I still have a long way to go before I achieve true success.
I’ll pick the butterfly since my mother and I both think that it is a fascinating creature.
What do you find most challenging as an Answers.com contributor?
I think making sure that my answers are accurate is the most challenging as an Answer.com contributor.
Who or what is your inspiration in life?
My inspiration is definitely my parents as they worked hard to raise me to be who I am now.
I would love to visit Japan as I have always thought that it is a very beautiful country with many different plants and animals.
What is one quirky or interesting random fact about you that most people may not know?
My short-term memory is bad, but my long-term memory is surprisingly good.
