This is bob rulz. My real name is Jason; I'm a 24-year old living in South Salt Lake, Utah, United States. I have a wide variety of interests, including most notably geography, meteorology, urban development, architecture, astronomy and space exploration, history, American football, music, and TV. I am a proud critic (although not a cynic!). I am very socially liberal. I am an apatheist (also known as pragmatic atheism), although I did grow up as a member of the LDS Church. I am a Denver Broncos (NFL) and Utah Jazz (NBA) fan, although I am much more passionate about the NFL than anything. I am also an avid bowler and self-avowed Minecraft addict.

I don't really have the attention span to learn instruments but listening to music is a major part of my life - I did play the viola and piano in the past and I have experimented with some electronic music programs. I can appreciate some music from just about any genre, but most of my favorite music is alternative rock, indie rock, art rock, new wave, and electronic music of all varieties (particularly electronic dance music).

Check out my music page for more a more in-depth look at my music tastes.

My vote for adminship, from September 20 to September 27, 2005, failed with a vote of 7 for, 11 against, and 1 neutral. I don't plan to apply for adminship again. That was a long-ass time ago!

Current Wiki-statusEdit

  • I have been quite dormant for a long time (41 edits in all of 2013, yikes; that used to be a good DAY for me!), but I've been getting that itch to contribute again (seeing how much work that some articles could still use has really inspired me). I plan on becoming much more active.

- July 2, 2014

What I contributeEdit

I have been editing Wikipedia since I was 14 (!) years old. I am good with prose and in providing general descriptions of certain subjects, but I am still getting the hang of the referencing on this website. It was something that has nearly driven me away on occasion but I just love this website too much. I am great at general copy-editing, cleanup, and grammar edits, but I have also been known to vigorously rewrite bad or stubby articles.

When I began I was a Star Wars geek and avidly contributed to the Star Wars-related articles, as well as anything relating to Utah, but I have moved beyond the Star Wars Expanded Universe. I now focus on Utah-related articles, and try my best to contribute to meteorology, video game, television, and music articles as well (and soon perhaps architecture and urban planning-related articles?). I was a huge contributor to tropical cyclone articles during the 2005 and 2006 hurricane seasons, but the quality of WikiProject Tropical cyclones is so high that I don't have much to contribute anymore.

For tons of useless info on me, check out my personal subpage.
