Quality, not quantity.

Welcome! If you would like to know something about me, check out my biography. Otherwise, peruse my interests and contributions. If you would like to know what I think about various Wikipedia topics, please check out my rants and essays page.

You know its time for a Wikibreak when... you start having nightmares about unsourced statements, bad prose, and questionable licenses on images used in articles. I'll fix it, I swear.

Interesting info

Places with amusing names

Feel free to add any if you know of one for which an article exists.
