Are you an expert? In *anything*? Answered

Are you an expert in something? Absolutely anything?

Peter Shankman ("CEO, Entrepreneur, Adventurist") has started a website that aims to bring together journalists who need an expert, and experts who don't mind being exposed to journalists.

Each day, you'll receive up to three emails, each with anywhere from 2-10 queries per email. They'll all be labeled with [shankman.com] in the subject line, for easy filtering. If you see a query you can answer, go for it! HelpAReporter.com really is that simple.

I've been doing it for a few days now, and it's rather interesting what reporters are looking for (today I've had "are you a vegan with a heartwarming story about animal companions?", "how do you prevent sports injuries in 14-18 year olds?" and "Do you have experience of the H-1B visa programme?"). The only request I've responded to was one about alien evolution.

You pay nothing to join in, and receive only karma (apparently), but, if nothing else, it's a bit of a laugh.

You should do a collaboration with my kids; "Homework, Methods of Evasion and Distraction" or "Homework, The Last Resort".

Hah! Actually, I'm looking for the loan of a pair of wheel-ramps to get at it better.

Well, if you lived closer, you could HAVE mine. The only thing more dangerous then these ramps (they are sturdy, but getting a car up on them is quite the trick), would be a pair of scissor jacks :-)

I am a licesned expert at sitting. I have studied sitting methodology and physics.

I am currently finishing a book, titled: The History of Sitting

I have studied the matter for over 17 years and have pioneered some of the most important advances, such as the Colorado incident of '87

My current ambitions are the solution to Einstein's unsolved Weight Reduction Operations, by which the body weight is proportioned in such a way, that a "second center of gravity' is created, therefore lowering the body's strain.
