Eight Things You Didn’t Know About John Chow

I received this blog tag from Zac Johnson asking me to list eight things about me that most people wouldn’t know. I stop doing blog tags a while ago because I got tagged too many times. However, since I’ve already posted five things you don’t know about me, I only need to add three more.

From The Original Five Things

1 – When I was in high school, one of my best friends was Terry Driver. He grew up to become the Abbotsford Killer and is now serving life in prison without any chance of parole. Rumor has it that I provoked Terry into becoming a serial killer when I beamed him, point blank, in the head with a tennis ball. While I did indeed shot him in the head, I assure you, that did not turned him into a serial killer. At least I hope not.

2 – I started a rock fight in China. What began as a friendly game of who can throw rocks the furthest over a fence of trees turn into a full scale battle as people on the other side of the trees started throwing rocks back at us. As far as I know, no one got hurt by the barrage of flying rocks but the rumor is I killed a family of pandas. This is not true. I am fairly sure no pandas were harmed in the great rock fight of China.

3 – I have worked a grand total of eight months at a total of three jobs. My shortest job was four hours and the longest was about seven month. I have never worked at a job since.

4 – I used to steal student’s lunch money by suckering them into a game of Three-Card Monte.

5 – While doing the Grouse Grind, I pissed off a bunch of hikers by passing them backwards.

Three New Things You Didn’t Know About John Chow

6 – I hold the record for the 100 meter dash in my high school. However, I’m sure someone must have broke that by now.

7 – During my bar hopping days, I used to bet girls $1 that I could kiss them without touching any part of their body. When they say go ahead, I would kiss them and then say, “Damn! I lost!” and give them the dollar.

8 – One time at a house party, I was talking to this girl. We were hitting it off really well but the party ran out of drinks. I decided to head to the store to get more and asked if she would like to come with me. She agreed and we went to my car. I open the car door for her but before she could get in, I grab her and kissed her full on the mouth. She gave me a startle look and I said, “The first kiss is always the most troublesome. I figure we should get it out of the way.” She slapped me and went back to the party. I went to the store alone.

    Well… that’s definitely…interesting 😀

    1. Mubin says:

      DOing half of those things would get you sent to jail nowadays.

      1. cooliojones says:

        Yeah, but they are so much fun though! And besides, the experiences last a lifetime.

        1. these things can only happen to john

          great list of 8 things

      2. Only John Chow can get away with those things. 😈

  2. John Chow… dah P.I.M.P.


    1. blogcrowds says:

      I know eh, never would have thought of it, nice line man. lol

      1. So John, this is how you got your wife to marry you? You used these pick-up lines on her, too, did you? 😆

  3. Mike says:

    Well that’s certainly amusing… mmm thats a good trick, betting a $1…. Maybe, even a trick that I could afford!

    1. like the trick

      if i were a man, i’d certainly use it, it’s so much better than the chatup lines i come across nowadays

    2. So how much you spent in total 🙂

      1. I’d guess that it took a lot of 1 dollar bills — but who could even count when you’ve just kissed and conned all those women?! 😆

  4. MK says:

    7 – During my bar hopping days, I used to bet girls $1 that I could kiss them without touching any part of their body. When they say go ahead, I would kiss them and then say, “Damn! I lost!” and give them the dollar.

    Lol, that is pretty clever XD

    John apparently has a pimp side I didn’t know about. With all the money you make these days, imaging all the kisses you could give…

    1. Goob says:

      I’m so using that when I go out this week. Hahaha, John needs to start another blog showing people all the moves he knows.

      1. Geek Domain says:

        Haha..for sure! Hilarious. :mrgreen:

      2. Just make sure the girl you end up kissing doesn’t read John’s blog LOL. She might just raise the stakes for a kiss you can get at a cheaper price with someone else!

    2. cooliojones says:

      I think at this point, the girls are paying John for the kisses! 😀

      1. …and John respectfully declines every time by waving his hand with his wedding ring. 😉

  5. awflasher says:

    baby , you kissed the girls !!!
    omg !!! haha orz~~

  6. SeanS says:

    I like number 7 :mrgreen:

  7. JoshNash says:

    No7 was good 😆

  8. Michael says:

    I love #7, but in today’s money that would probably have to be a $5.

    Funny Stuff John.


    1. Today they would pay him.

      1. If people are willing to pay John $400 for a review, I’m pretty sure they would pay more than $1 to get a kiss from the dot com mogul. 😎

  9. Ed Lau says:

    Lies. John is haunted by the ghosts of the panda family he brutally murdered with rocks to the face. Every so often, he can hear the sound of bamboo gnawing and sneezes.

    1. Lewis Empire says:

      Did anyone tell John about the warrant from the Chinese government? Pandacide is a serious offense.

      1. pandacide? a new additional to my voc

      2. Haha very cool word — I’m sure it’ll catch up in the John Chow community soon.

  10. Subramanyam says:

    No 7 is a ripoff…

  11. Sly says:

    Man, that was really interesting. Like everyone else said, #7 was nice. 😎

    1. webd360 says:

      It seems like everyone liked that one, including me

  12. Debo Hobo says:

    Nowaday…The Girls should be paying you. John, I have a bet for you…. 😈

  13. Goob says:

    Remind me never to be in the same room with you and a tennis ball 🙂

    1. Lewis Empire says:

      Or his other High School buddies…

    2. …or with an inflatable hammer — he’s supposed to be deadly with those, too.

  14. D&D Nerd.com says:

    #7 A cute way to sneak in a kiss. ^_^

    #8 Not a good way to start a relationship at all. With how you went about that one, I think the slap was well deserved.

    Though, despite #8, it seems you’ve cleaned up your act. 🙂

    1. Lewis Empire says:

      It looked like the night was going pretty well if she agreed to take the drive with you. Talk about rushing to the finish line!

      1. that’s pretty good, lewis

      2. If she went with John after that stolen, intrusive kiss, that makes the girl a you-know-what. I say good for her that she gave John a remembrance of her own and stormed off. 😈

  15. Sagar says:

    good to know so much about my blogging guru 😉 lol


  16. Mjuboy says:

    Haha, #7 ftw!!

  17. Don Wilson says:

    Wow, the first one is shocking. Could you find a picture of him? I searched all over Google for it but couldn’t find one.

    1. John Chow says:

      I don’t think there are any pics of him on the Net. The only pic I have of him is from my high school yearbook. There was no such thing as a digital camera back then.

    2. I actually grew up in Abbotsford and remember that like it was yesterday, what a terrible tragedy. There are no pictures but won’t ever forget what he looked like..

    3. That’s pretty freaky. 😯

  18. Number 7 is way too overused these days.

    And I’m actually surprised the influence of your evil hasn’t sparked more serial killers. Way to go.

    1. hahahah 😆 😆 😆 😆 😆 😆

    2. None that we know of — they’re out there, I tell you. 😕

  19. Nick says:

    Coming soon from John Chow:

    Dating and relationship advice and/or what not to do

    I dunno if he’ll make it another category on this blog or start a new one for that, but I’ll definitely be sure to check it out when it comes. It seems all that experience must have paid off as he’s married now 😀

  20. 1916home.net says:

    I did something similar to your #8 but ended up going to her place. It turned out to be a 3 month relationship.

    1. cooliojones says:

      Now you’re gonna have a bunch of copycats trying this because you and John did it. You know they don’t have the same skills as you!

  21. I shall try the $1 trick soon.

  22. Lewis Empire says:

    Hey John, This post is about 8 things we didn’t know about you. Anyone who read your original post on Dec 22 already know the first 5. I only see three new ones and will patiently wait for the other 5!

    1. cooliojones says:

      He got you!! Now you will continue to come back looking for the other five, giving him more traffic. He’s an evil genius!

  23. la bloga says:

    how much was the $1 ?

  24. simon says:

    #7 is a great trick! :mrgreen:

  25. Ha, my favorite as I’m sure others was your slap in the face. I love it.

    1. I would’ve paid money to see John’s face after that slap alright. Priceless!

  26. Lance says:

    That was interesting, some of that remind me of myself :mrgreen:

  27. Victor says:

    Wow, a serial killer best friend !!
    Pay for hot action (only one dollar, ugly babe)
    Probably a panda lost a claw from that rock fight
    With this curriculum, how else can make more money online than John Chow ??

  28. Hey josh wow these are very interesting facts about yourself. The killer fact is pretty scary actually 😆


    1. webd360 says:

      Yea, I can’t even imagine one of my friend’s turning out to be a serial killer and I’m guessing you didn’t expect it either before it happened

  29. MrGPT says:

    John! I never knew you were such a pimp!

    1. Only from pimps become successful people 😈

    2. It’s a skill he’s mastered through the years. 😆

  30. Cg Ciro says:

    Have you ever seen the movie DERAILED, with Clive Owen and Jennifer Aniston? well… Clive copied you!! 😈


    7 – During my bar hopping days, I used to bet girls $1 that I could kiss them without touching any part of their body. When they say go ahead, I would kiss them and then say, “Damn! I lost!” and give them the dollar.

    1. Right! I knew I seen that slick move somewhere.

  31. John isn’t all milk-and-cookies. He happens to be human. That’s a good thing, I think. He hasn’t killed anyone yet, and, so far, that’s a good sign.

    1. He CLAIMS he hasn’t killed anything yet, but according to Ed he has so… LOL gotta love the dot com mogul’s human side.

  32. zool says:

    nice story…
    Is it all true???

  33. Zac Johnson says:

    Haha, great list JC. I didn’t know most of them! Thanks for taking the time to make the list/post.

  34. CatherineL says:

    John, your business could be suffering from your bad relationship practices in the past. I just blogged about this in, If you’re Bad in Bed, You’re Probably Bad in Business. Maybe you need to check it out.

    1. Hmmm…but John is so not bad in business. So he must be great in the bed then!

  35. DerrickFung says:

    Love the article. Good job…

  36. Yumcha Girl says:

    I’m not sure I actually have any comments!

  37. Brian says:

  38. Rob says:

    No.7 is quiet a nice idea
    i have to collect some $1 coins 😈

      1. webd360 says:

        Ok, I hit submit too quick, without thinking of the possibility that you may be from another country which was $1 coins 😳

  39. Wong says:

    haha, That is great!I’m not sure i actually have any comments!

  40. Indyank says:

    Hmm…it is this guy

  41. John – You were good at kisses huh.. thats why you said in your recent post regarding mails.. KISS – Keep It Short and Simple.. 😀

  42. I’m going to spain soon, and will definitely use a few of them lines on the ladies.

    This post definitely deserves a beer, but sadly my paypal account got limited 🙁

  43. kaiwah says:

    Hilarious and naughty evil John 😛

  44. Marc says:

    I’m just curious how you managed with only 3 jobs with only 8 months logged… Were you living with family while you built your online empire?

  45. Jason says:

    I remember having a rock battle with my friends back in middle school. It was indeed fun, but someone will always end up getting hit in the back with a rock…

  46. pearl says:

    first time i had a laughter here…

    nice to know a little more of you! 😀

  47. Hey John, I noticed in your comments you went to High School in Abbotsford. I grew up in Abby and went to Yale. Did you go to one of the hated rivals or were you a Lion as well.

    1. John Chow says:

      I went to high school in Van Tech.

  48. I like 7 but Pandas are also good.

  49. ttgapers says:

    that number 8 things i did not know was quite funny….


  50. Hip Hop says:

    lol funny stuff

  51. I was just wondering…where did you learn all these from, John? Did you have a guru who taught you the evil ways of the world? 😈

  52. Andy says:

    John Chow the lady killa!! 😎

    The car kiss was a smooth move…her reaction sounds a bit wacko to me!

  53. sandossu says:

    That’s very funny 🙂

  54. I lived around the corner from Terry during the entire ‘Abbotsford Killer’ hunt.

    Hell of a shock to discover the killer taunting cops for months was someone I’d say hi to on my way to school.

  55. ouchs says:

    wow that was an interesting read!!

  56. So are you still a runner?
