As of January 21, 2016, I have 75k edits (everything included; I've forgotten where to find the edit counter breaking it down into article edits, user page edits, etc.). This is not a brag but a cautionary statement. Wikipedia is one of the all-time great concepts in history, but it is REPLETE with gag.

(1 Aug 2013, updated 24 Jan 2014, 30 Jan 2015, 21 October 2015) And that was then! It has now been estimated that there is enough gag within these cyber pages to choke every man, woman, child, and frog on the face of the earth twice over four times over eight times over sixteen times over (it's growing geometrically as we speak). I'm sure this is truer than ever, but I've stopped letting it bother me.


Edit count[edit]

Jan 18, 2016: Buckboard 24788 (February 4, 2006); Reedmalloy 50498 and counting (April 11, 2008); logged out: ? Combined this would place me 605th among addicted wikipedians world-wide

Who I am[edit]

Police career
Department Whoville PD (1970-1985)

Years of service 1970-2004
Rank Patrolman: 8-10-1970

I picked three musical user boxes, but there are more than two dozen I could rotate, Debussy, Chopin and AC/DC foremost. Without music, we are drones.

I am not an expert on anything. But I once learned to read, and to think, and to correct my many mistakes.

I recently found this (slightly pretentious) infobox and making one for myself seems the best use of it, and that questionable, but just the same you'll still have to decipher for yourself where these places are.

Quotes to live by[edit]

Martin Brody: "I can do anything. I'm the chief of police."


Good works should never be forgotten[edit]
