My name is Ben. I like video games. Cheers!
When it comes to Wikipedia articles, my edits are mainly concerned with adding missing information and improving clarification. Articles should be written professionally, but also be easy to understand.
I have interests in a wide variety of things. I am always open to acquiring more knowledge and learning more.
I spend lots of time playing MMORPGs, FPS, Strategy, and Simulator games. Some of my favorite games and game series include Runescape, Call of Duty, Battlefield, Advance Wars, SimCity, Railroad Tycoon II, and Microsoft Flight Simulator.
Aside from video games, I spend lots of time reading books and articles on a wide variety of topics. I most commonly read about vehicles, structures, and technical information, politics/politicians, international relations, and government, scientific concepts, laws, and theories, and history.
Some of my favorite aircraft include:
- Boeing 377 Stratocruiser
- Boeing 777
- Boeing B-52 Stratofortress
- Cessna 182 Skylane
- Fairchild Republic A-10 Thunderbolt II
- Lockheed SR-71 Blackbird
- LZ 129 Hindenburg
- McDonnell Douglas DC-10
- Messerschmitt Bf 109
- North American XB-70 Valkyrie
- Piper PA-42 Cheyenne
These are some interesting facts I came across while reading various articles on Wikipedia. Most of them are of little significance, however I have an affinity for memorizing random facts.
