As of today, December 4th, 2012, I have removed my administrator rights.
If you are bright, you will try to find out who I am and why I might find this to be the right decision. Otherwise, feel free to accept the official staff story.
I will not apologize for bruising egos.
See you folks around (unless someone's going to find an excuse, so that they can ban me, now that I'm vulnerable).Read more >

It has occured to me lately, as I've been writing my job applications, that my experience in administrating Wikia wikis could be translated into an entry on my CV. Question is, how would it be done?

This blog is dedicated to all those claiming that humanity can wipe itself out with nuclear weapons.
The Tsar Bomba, the most powerful nuclear weapon ever built, was a one-of-a-kind hydrogen bomb with a 50 megaton yield.
