Hello there. This is my user page. Isn't this fun?

About Me[edit]

There's not much to say; I tend to one-stop edit in order to improve articles. There are a few I follow; mainly Barenaked Ladies and related articles. I am gradually increasing my purview. I take a passing interest in The Simpsons and related articles. I have interest in Star Trek related articles, though I don't really have the time right now to get into participating in any editing therein. If I am reading an article which is very poorly written, I may stop and try to restructure/regrammaticize it. Oh, and I also enjoy making up words (though I avoid doing this on wikipedia; don't worry).

Stuff that pisses me off[edit]

Things that piss me off include

  • Idiots
  • Idiots who edit articles with false information, and then continue to add it after being told the information is false
  • Idiots who vandalize articles
  • Idiots who don't realize they are idiots
  • Idiots who dun be using there's really poor grammars on wIKIPEDIA, and thems who dont care too learn!!! [Note: The preceeding is a mockery of idiots, and not idiocy in and of itself].
