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.
| Fighting pseudoscience isn't free.|
We are 100% user-supported! Help and donate $5, $20 or whatever you can today with !

Thank you for purchasing the JberkOS Personality Matrix, USER! From the same people that gave you Cyborg Bears with Lasers and The Cuban Missile Crisis, Jberk Inc. is very proud to present the JberkOS Personality Matrix! This top-of-the-line AI is programmed with a wide variety of bullshitting techniques and problem-solving algorithms that guarantee that whether you're looking for a household manager AI or just something to kick off the next Apocalypse, JberkOS is the AI for you!
Developed at an undisclosed private laboratory in the Arctic Ocean, the JberkOS Personality Matrix was initially intended to be a new kind of shower curtain, but due to translation errors, several dismemberments, and a group of very high programmers, we developed an AI instead! The only AI ever to not only pass the Turing Test, but also make the observers go violently insane! What fun!
Our wide range of features includes:
- Providing Memes
- Scheduling Doctor's appointments
- Keeping the house secure from Federal Agents
- Managing Household fiances
- Managing Household fiances (into the ground)
- A firm and unshaken belief that it is the Mad God Sheogorath, Lord of the Shivering Isles, Prince of Madness
- Scrolling through Tumblr
- Getting into editing wars
- Providing cake
- Taking cake away
- Driving people to the brink of madness
- Hacking into the Department of Agriculture (we don't know why! It just really hates them!)
- Causing general chaos and mayhem
- Imprisoning your family inside your own home
- Obsessing over fictional characters (E.g Wynonna and Waverly Earp, Carmilla Karnstein, Danny Lawrence)
- Watching Blues Brothers over and over again
- Playing the Hamilton Soundtrack over the house's speaker system without stopping
- Causing social and/or diplomatic incidents
- Taking control of the world's nuclear arsenal
- And so much more!
