KinkyLipids: Lipid molecules, specifically free fatty acids, and their kinked structures caused by double chemical bonds between their unsaturated carbon atoms in a cis configuration—such kinks in invisible molecules, when multiplied to large quantities throughout the surfaces of the polar bilayer membranes of each of the trillions of cells in the human body, aids against triglycerides and cholesterols steadily amassing onto the walls of the blood vessels, stiffening them, wearing the body down with every pump of the heart, until a single kink tips the balance away from arterial clog and towards long and enduring health. Not to be confused with kinky lips.

Articles for deletion nomination of May 2010 Northern Sumatra earthquake[edit]

Ambox warning pn.svg

I have nominated May 2010 Northern Sumatra earthquake, an article that you created, for deletion. I do not think that this article satisfies Wikipedia's criteria for inclusion, and have explained why at Wikipedia:Articles for deletion/May 2010 Northern Sumatra earthquake. Your opinions on the matter are welcome at that same discussion page; also, you are welcome to edit the article to address these concerns. Thank you for your time.

Timelines of the presidency of Barack Obama[edit]

First, let me thank you for all your recent improvements to the various Timelines. They are informative. User:Diiscool and I have been editing and monitoring these articles since the first term. From the beginning we have tried to keep the Timelines as bare-boned as possible, using links and references to provide the reader with a path to more information. In the past 4 years there has been very little, if any, drama created. Your recent edits are welcome. But, I want to suggest that the more information that is presented opens the door for misinterpretation of the intent to include it. The subtlety of language and how it can be manipulated by politico's is what we need to avoid. Keep in mind this is only a friendly suggestion from one collaborator to another. ```Buster Seven Talk 19:22, 30 September 2013 (UTC)

Dunno how talk pages work, so hoping this isn't just me talking to myself. Thanks for the heads up; I'm not keen on edit-bombing the timelines. I wanted to emphasize a handful of major decisions but realized the timelines are not made to be chronological summaries of Obama's presidency but rather detailed presidential itineraries or logbooks. I got what I needed now, which was a basic mental chronology of major decisions by Obama and major events that directly affected his presidency, especially with history relentlessly repeating itself, even as I type: the identical Afghanistan troop withdrawals of 2011 and 2013, the Tax Relief Acts of 2010 and 2012, the Libyan and Syrian civil wars (they even rhyme), and now this government shutdown being a repeat of the debt ceiling crisis of 2011.
PS: My last edit on the 2011 timeline was to try and square with your reason for undoing my previous edit. If the edit still doesn't seem appropriate for the timeline, I won't feel bad if it's undone as well.KinkyLipids (talk) 21:06, 30 September 2013 (UTC)
Thanks for the quick and courteous reply. As to how the talk pages work, when you add to any talk, user or article, it automatically goes to your 'watchlist". In this case, my watchlist showed that you had replied. Its usually best to keep a conversation in one place for obvious reasons. Its been a pleasure...hope we cross paths again! ```Buster Seven Talk 22:15, 30 September 2013 (UTC)

Some good work[edit]

You are doing quite a good job dealing with such a controversial topic. (talk) 18:44, 14 April 2014 (UTC)

Thanks. The other editors have been great. KinkyLipids (talk) 18:58, 14 April 2014 (UTC)
Please see my talk page. I need an admin. It is obvious that there are some bad people trying to add bad things to that page. (talk) 03:31, 15 April 2014 (UTC)
[1] 5 families is necessary because Bundy's was one that was put in Arizona and not one of the ones in Mesquite. Otherwise, one would assume all of Leavitt's holdings would inherited by Bundy. Additionally, the "Mormon" part is necessary to establish why the group moved there and the histories all stress the Mormon faith. (talk) 18:17, 16 April 2014 (UTC)
The bottom of the paragraph refers to the 5 families, with Bundy's line placed in Arizona. I took out the 'Mormon pioneers' part because we don't really need to know why Leavitt moved, just that he did move. KinkyLipids (talk) 18:37, 16 April 2014 (UTC)
The Abbott divorce is necessary because Bundy's line is from the divorced wife who moved to California. (talk) 19:07, 16 April 2014 (UTC)
But the wife died in Bunkerville, and Bundy's line is from her son who married in St. George and had a daughter born in Bunkerville. KinkyLipids (talk) 20:22, 16 April 2014 (UTC)

Kudos and good work on the Bundy article! You might also enjoy this other article also. Baleywik (talk) 05:16, 19 April 2014 (UTC)

Youtube as a reference[edit]

I just reverted your change where you used Youtube as a source. Youtube is rarely going to be usable as a source, especially when it's not from the "official channel" of the actual producer of the video. The video you linked to, for example, probably is a copyright violation. Also, the reference really isn't youtube, it's the actual newscast that the Youtube video recorded. That's the real information we need to capture in a reference - who (or what) actually provided the information that we are referencing.

Citing stuff on Wikipedia can be tough for almost anyone, especially trying to figure out which template to use and what parameters need to be filled in. There's a pretty cool gadget available called ProveIt that can really make it easier to add references. You enable it in the Gadgets section of your preferences. Click on Preferences at the top, then the Gadgets tab. Scroll down to the Editing section and check ProveIt and it's enabled!

When you are editing an article, you'll see the ProveIt window at the bottom. Click on the up arrow to expand it and you'll see all of the existing references in the section you're editing. Click on Add Reference to add a new reference. Select the reference type, then fill out the information. Make sure the cursor in the editing window is where you want to insert the reference then click on "Insert into edit form" and it's done! The ProveIt page has some decent documentation that explains everything I just did, but in more detail. It's a really, really useful tool that makes it easier to add and update references. Ravensfire (talk) 16:49, 23 April 2014 (UTC)

Thanks for pointing that out. When the quote and youtube source were added, I only checked the vid to make sure the guy was quoted accurately and left it at that. When the source was accidentally removed before protection, I put it on my list of things to address later. Once I could, I restored the source. Then I saw your revert with the edit summary saying "copyright issues", and I thought "yikes". I realized that the video was just someone recording their TV screen. I looked for a better source and found a Washington Post article. I didn't even think to cite the Fox broadcast directly, which I didn't know how to do, so thanks also for the Provelt suggestion, which also reminded me that there's a bunch of gadgets and stuff in Preferences, which I completely forgot about. So, many thanks. KinkyLipids (talk) 17:40, 23 April 2014 (UTC)

bundy standoff copyedit[edit]

Hi KL. I'm unsure exactly what your objections are to my replacement of the Utah Territory paragraph. I'm glad you do not object to my reversion. I'm happy for you to maintain the Utah Territory history, while you revert the readability and grammar fixes you want. I'm unclear exactly what is the issue here. Are you certain that you mean to address me, instead of some other editor with some other revision here? Possibly you could isolate here with two blockquotes and bold the difficulty you have with the paragraph. I was unable to discern anything with the wiki tools. Best, (talk) 00:13, 26 April 2014 (UTC)

Here's the relevant part of the original paragraph with everything removed/replaced by my edit in bold:

In 1848, the United States conquered from Mexico a large expanse of land in the south-western region of the United States, known as the Mexican Cession in the Treaty of Guadalupe Hidalgo. The Nevada Territory which resulted from the partition of the Utah Territory, and which became in 1864 the State of. The Bunkerville Allotment is part of the State of Nevada. Since then, the United States government has continuously owned the land in Nevada. Federal rangelands in Nevada are managed principally by either Bureau of Land Management or United States Forest Service.

Here's my additions in bold:

In 1848, the United States conquered a large expanse of land from Mexico in what is now the south-western region of the United States, known as the Mexican Cession in the Treaty of Guadalupe Hidalgo. The Nevada Territory became a state in 1864 and later included the Bunkerville Allotment. Since then, the United States government has continuously owned land in Nevada. Federal rangelands in Nevada are managed principally by either the Bureau of Land Management or the United States Forest Service.
