Hi! Leave me a message!

I mostly enjoy spending time adding information to and editing scientific articles, such as:

Also, I like to add (much needed, IMHO) images to articles of a scientific nature. eg. [1]

I am strongly scientifically skeptical and as such I have little patience for pseudoscience or mysticism being inserted into legitimate rational articles on Wikipedia. It seems that this is a common occurrence on Wiki and I do my best to keep NPOV in articles where this is an issue. Though sometimes it is rather difficult!! :o)

Check out my images of light source spectra, they're oh so exciting![edit]

Reaper is a series of three oil-on-canvas paintings by the Dutch artist Vincent van Gogh of a man reaping a wheat field under a bright early-morning sun. This is the second painting in the series, which Van Gogh appears to have completed in a single day in Saint-Rémy-de-Provence, France, while taking breaks to write a letter on 4–5 September 1889. In a later part of the letter, he announced: "Phew – the reaper is finished, I think it will be one that you'll place in your home". Van Gogh initially preferred this version over the earlier study, describing it as "an image of death as the great Book of Nature speaks to us about it – but what I sought is the 'almost smiling'. It's all yellow except for a line of violet hills – a pale, blond yellow. I myself find that funny, that I saw it like that through the iron bars of a cell." The painting is now in the collection of the Van Gogh Museum in Amsterdam.Painting credit: Vincent van Gogh
