I created my account on January 16, 2012, but didn't actually make any edits until July 16. My first vandalism revert was on October 19, but I haven't reverted any vandalism since then.
I'm Catholic. I have PDD-NOS, ADD, dysmetria, and self-diagnosed dysgraphia, and am proud of them all. My major interests are developmental psychology and articulatory phonetics, but since I'm not an expert on either of them, most of my major edits are on pages relating to fiction.
I'm a moderate eventualist, a moderate anti-statusquoist, a communalist, and a semi-factionalist. See meta:Conflicting Wikipedia philosophies.

Have you ever visited that portion of Erin's plot that offers its sympathetic soil for the minute survey and scrutinous examination of those in political power, whose decision has wisely been the means before now of converting the stern and prejudiced, and reaching the hand of slight aid to share its strength in augmenting its agricultural richness?
- Delina Delaney, by Amanda McKittrick Ros
Some who have read the book, or at any rate have reviewed it, have found it boring, absurd, or contemptible; and I have no cause to complain, since I have similar opinions of their works, or of the kinds of writing that they evidently prefer.
Calvin: A painting. Moving. Spiritually enriching. Sublime...."High" art. The comic strip. Vapid. Juvenile. Commercial hack work...."Low" art. A painting of a comic strip panel. Sophisticated irony. Philosophically challenging...."High" art.
Hobbes: Suppose I draw a cartoon of a painting of a comic strip?
Calvin: Sophomoric. Intellectually sterile. "Low" art.
Tragedy is when I cut my finger. Comedy is when you walk into an open sewer and die.
The problem with Wikipedia is that it only works in practice. In theory, it's a total disaster.
Go on, get out! Last words are for fools who haven't said enough!
