Welcome to my disgustingly fabulous user page!
For those who haven't been stalking me, I've been around for a while. I kinda drift in and out, some days editing rather a lot, while sometimes going days between edits. But no matter if you can see me or not, I'm usually lurking in the corner, because that's what Redbacks do.
Sit back, and enjoy reading my pre-obituary.
Who is this wonderful Redback fellow I keep hearing about?
Well, I'm somewhere in my early to mid twenties; I live by myself, which is great whenever I decide to bring a "friend" home with me. I'm currently a full-time student, studying for a Diploma of Logistics.
From a young age, I've had an interest in computing. From age eleven, I could program in C, shortly after I was making silly games in C++. When I was around fourteen, I was introduced to BASIC, which is (for obvious reasons) the programming language I enjoy most. I have a Certificate III in Information Technology, Certificate I in Business, I have obtained the module Ride a Courier Motorcycle and I also have a forklift license.
Religion, what about it?
I can still remember when I first came to doubt religion. You see, I was raised as a Roman Catholic up until age six or so, when my family stopped attending church. During the first or second grade, while I was still attending scripture lessons at school, I spotted an abnormality in my learnings. My scripture teacher, Sister Monica had told us that Adam and Eve were the first people, able to talk and everything; My school teacher told us we descended from cavemen, who couldn't talk.
While we were in the car, heading into town to do some grocery shopping, I asked my parents which situation was correct. My mother's reply was something along the lines of "It's whichever you believe, the scientists or the bible". I made my choice then and there, and I have never looked back. Even though I never believed in the whole God thing myself, I was always respectful to those who disagreed, so long as they didn't hassle me. This was made very easy by the fact that where I grew up, it was considered socially acceptable to be an open atheist, more so than openly admitting to being religious.
Now that I'm older and have hair on my chest, and a few other places, I've come to realize that not all religious folk are as tolerant as the ones I grew up around. Years of observation have shown me that some people are so intent on believing in their religion that it can warp their minds, cause them to reject logic, and attempt to destroy the lives of those who don't agree with them. Because of this I have been forced to conclude that religion, or more specifically organised religion, is about as close as we can come to true evil. I still have acceptance for those individuals who harbor a belief in a higher power, but I have a strong hatred those who would turn that belief into a cause to reject or harm others.
Well, I'm not sure what it is you want to know about me. So allow me to present my list of "Things I Like vs Things I Don't Like".
|Things I Like||Things I Dislike|
|Common sense||Nonsense, unless it's humorous|
|Barack Obama||Compulsory Voting|
|The Labor Party||The Liberal Party|
I was first enlightened to the existence of CP while doing some random browsing in search of lulz. Well, didn't I hit the jackpot? To begin with, I attempted to improve their articles. I requested a few citations for the crazier assertions, and made an effort to debate some of he arguable ones. Of course, Mr. Schlafly would have none of that. It wasn't long, not even a day before I was blocked under the 90/10 rule. Not exactly a warm welcome. However, thanks to a dynamic-IP, I was back before long.
Numerous blocks (but no substantial rebuttals) later, I turned to the dark side. Numerous pages filled with "Moar Hitler" and a few parodies later, I decided to sit back and just watch them destroy themselves - which we can all agree, they're doing a marvelous job at. I still sock up now and then, made no more difficult by my infinite range block, to call them on their crazier antics but for the most part I enjoy sitting around here laughing at them.
I originally would only pop in from time to time in order to read WIGO whenever I needed a hearty laugh. However, after spending some time contributing to Conservapedia, I felt it was proper to sign up over here as well, so I could join in pointing and laughing at them.
No! Those are my articles, my articles
Not a very exciting list, I know. But still, may as well brag for bragging's sake.
