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]

Rhinogobius flumineus
Rhinogobius flumineus, also known as the lizard goby, is a species of goby in the family Oxudercidae endemic to Japan, seen here in Hamamatsu, Shizuoka Prefecture. A small freshwater fish found in fast-flowing streams, it maintains its position against the current by gripping a rock with a sucker formed from two of its fins. The fish's mouth is slightly asymmetric; dextral (right-sided) fish tend to curve their bodies to the right as they rest, while sinistral (left-sided) fish tend to adopt a left-curving posture. The fish are omnivorous, picking edible items off the stream bed with the side of the mouth, but dextral and sinistral fish show no preference for which side of the mouth they use for this purpose.Photograph credit: Seotaro
