There is no RationalWiki without you. We are a small non-profit with no staff – we are hundreds of volunteers who document pseudoscience and crankery around the world every day. We will never allow ads because we must remain independent. We cannot rely on big donors with corresponding big agendas. We are not the largest website around, but we believe we play an important role in defending truth and objectivity.
If everyone who saw this today donated $5, we would meet our goal for 2019.

We are 100% user-supported! Help and donate $5, $20 or whatever you can today with !

The details of my life are quite inconsequential. Very well. Where do I begin?
- Biology: A.S. in Molecular Biology. You read that right: Associates of Science. Yes, there are places that give out two-year degrees in that. I got offered a lab position after my first two years and quit school, hence the "A" instead of "B."
- Engineering: After working in the labs for a few years, I quit and went back to school to get my Bachelors and initially tried to double major in Biotech and Mechanical Engineering. In the end, I got a B.S. in Computer Science and Engineering degree (minor in Biochem). Now before you go off about how that's not an engineering degree, let me 'splain. No, there is too much. Let me sum up. Unlike a lot of universities, mine has a College of Engineering, which houses the C.S. program. I had to take the same math, statistics and physics that all of the other engineering degrees did. My diploma even says, "Computer Science and Engineering" not just "Computer Science." See, that's proof!
- Physics: Learn it, use it, love it.
- Stomping out bullshit: With big, steel toed boots. Spiked. Using a grinding motion and then jumping up and down while shouting, "The burning witch scene in Monty Python's Holy Grail movie was a parody of your logic, Dumbass!"
