NOTE: Be Nice Or Be Ignored

My name is Rando Calrissian. It is a reference to Lando Calrissian, not to Ayn Rand and her thugs. On an only slightly unrelated note, I am saddened by the increasing rate by which America is becoming a police state.

I am a part of RationalWiki:Mathematics project, which I am (hopefully part of, rather than solely) reviving. Please feel free to join me! (Note: I am not an expert on math in the slightest. I just really like it.)

sciencs means skepticism
I REALLY like science, but I keep my ability for skepticism even for what scientists tell me.

Articles I am going to create soon


Join the club I've started.

My favorite wikis

My thoughts on conservapedia

It's entertainingly hilarious. I sometimes visit just to laugh at the morons who edit it. I am not at RW to worry about or 'expose' CP. I am here too focus on the mass media and the other liars who are, for one reason or another, accepted by society at-large.

My thoughts on RationalWiki

It needs less cowbell! A lot less! Also, we have an anglophone bias and de facto condition for membership, which is very unfortunate. Otherwise, ♥♥♥♥♥♥♥♥♥♥♥♥♥♥♥♥♥♥♥♥♥♥♥♥♥♥♥♥♥!

RW editors are so great and do an excellent job keeping RW true to its mission because they understand a) nuance, b) the power of nuance, c) the limits of nuance d) that the world is complex, e) that some stuff just isn't complex, and, most importantly of all, f) that they do not know everything, which is far more than can be said of the CP crowd, I'm sure.

We are a diverse group of people from all walks of life, multiple political perspectives, various 'spiritual' beliefs(within which, I include none at all), all races, ages, classes, genders, sexual orientations, ability statuses, ethnicities, etc. This makes us baller! We do have that anglophone-centric problem, however.

Other stuff I am into, in no particular order

Programming languages I am learning

  • Ruby - about to start learning how to make classes
  • C++ - halfway through the chapter on pointers
  • Javascript - working on objects
  • SQL - will start in the next few days

Things I really don't like, a.k.a: I hope this does not make me seem like a self-righteous jerk
