Hello! My name is Rob and I have been a volunteer here on WikiAnswers for over 6 years now. It is a great place to be and loaded with great people too.
I am a Senior Supervisor & a Senior Mentor on the site and if you have a question regarding the site or any of it's functions or groups, feel free to ask me at any time. I can also be reached at Hooweestik @ Wikianswers.com (no spaces).
I have always been fascinated with science and was elated when I was allowed to supervise the science category. I love to learn new things, research existing ones and debate about what may (or may not) be. I believe that life is not a destination but the journey.
I don't know a whole lot about a little, but I know a little about a whole lot. I've been told I know more useless BS than I should. Actually, I'm dumber than a box of Blondes. I'm a former paramedic and Sub-contractor for a telecommunications engineering company. I am currently disabled from a back injury in February, 2008 which left me unable to walk except for extremely short distances. I am getting better and now walk with a cane.
I believe in God and I think He believes in me as well. I have learned to appreciate all the little things in life, because they are free.
I feel that a person has the choice to have a good day or a bad day. I've had bad days and I prefer to have good ones. Life is 10% what happens to you and 90% how you react to it.
I also collect sayings that reflect on life. These are listed below:
"My religion consists of a humble admiration of the illimitable superior spirit who reveals himself in the slight details we are able to perceive with our frail and feeble mind." ~Albert Einstein~

Life is a coin, you can spend it anyway you wish, but you can only spend it once.
It is the soldier who salutes the flag, who serves beneath the flag, and whose coffin is draped by the flag, who allows the protester to burn the flag.

"Until one has loved an animal, part of their soul remains unawakened" ~Unknown
"You can't eat gold but you can't eat without it."~(Chinese proverb)

"All that is necessary for the triumph of evil is that good men do nothing."~Edmond Burke
You know that white stuff around dried bird crap? That's bird crap too.

There are three types of people in the world. There are those that can count and then theres those that cant.
