I'm a big fan of fantasy and fiction, so I guess it's alright.

Absolutely. Running ads would introduce bias to the articles. We can't do that: "The Deepwater Horizon Disaster", sponsored by BP Energy. If you saw that you'd think that BP had paid for better press, even if they hadn't.

  1. I'm constantly using the site for everything. I actually edit the encyclopedia very rarely anymore, though, since I don't have much time. And I've edited many other wikis.
  2. I think they're both right and wrong. It's a great source for sources, and a great place to learn an overview. But you shouldn't write a paper directly off it.
  3. You're welcome!

That one's pretty good.

Image memes - I'm not entirely sure how they make me feel, to be honest. Some are pointlessly cruel but others are pretty funny.

I've decided only to care about the funny and good ones and let it ride.

Yes. Slayer, Sabbath, Metallica, Maiden, Melvins. Those are my go-to bands.

It's possibly an superstition but I was told that it prevents your hair from getting too much of the same chemicals bound up in it. I am not a chemist nor am I a beautician, but my girlfriend at the time was.

The going rate is one million USD. I've shaved it before - in 2000 - after a trip in Nepal.

When my mom got cancer I offered to shave my head in solidarity with her but she forbade me to do so.

I actually switch shampoos and conditioners about every 40 to 60 days. A trick an ex taught me, many years ago.
