My concessions to userboxes
My userpage looks less boring with a protein on it. So here's a DNA clamp. This is now a featured picture!

Proud product of the Cambrian explosion.

Articles I've worked on[edit]

This is as much a watchlist as anything else, so the probability that an article gets on here is directly proportional to how much I edited it and also to how likely it is to be vandalized/subject to edit creep, multiplied by a random value that serves as the laziness correction factor.
