About Me

Hello and welcome to my user-page! My username comes from Stax Records (if you're wondering) and my real name is James. I have lived in Hamden, Connecticut, New Haven, Connecticut, Storrs, Connecticut, Hartford, Connecticut, and Wallingford, Connecticut. Stop me if you see a pattern. I joined Wikipedia as a senior at Hopkins School and became an admin in early June 2006. I am and have been interested in baseball, fencing, Magic: The Gathering, computers, Stargate SG-1, anime, and other things that long prevented me from speaking to a conscious human female. I love Ulysses S. Grant and Wesley Clark. I graduated with a BA in Political Science from the University of Connecticut in 2010 and I earned a JD from University of Connecticut School of Law in 2013. I am a member of the Connecticut bar association.

As far as Wikipedia goes, I'm particularly proud of my work on various baseball and television related pages. I also enjoyed working a bit on the pages for Presidents of the Senate pro tem, especially this quirky bit of history. I'm also rather proud of finding, cropping, and uploading a proper free image of Ted Williams. For some humor enjoy the three best edit summaries ever. Here's a solid edit by an unbiased user. I am also fervently convinced that the television show Firefly had roots in the anime Outlaw Star. I'm trying to remain an active Wikipedian, though sometimes the pressures of the real world make that less likely. Given my editing tendancies I would consider myself a WikiOgre, though I feel I've collected quite a healthy edit count. Somebody even called me a champion once.

Picture of the day
Scorpions Pass

An aerial view of Ma'aleh Akrabim (Scorpions Pass), part of Israel's Route 227. This steep, twisted road is considered dangerous owing to its poor physical condition. Below the pass there is a dropoff of hundreds of metres, yet the road has no guard rails.
