WTF?This user ALWAYS TRIES to leave an edit summary

A brief introductionEdit

Welcome to my userpage. I'm User:ChamithN and I started editing Wikipedia in 2014. I mainly edit articles related to computer science and entertainment; however, I'd be glad to help if someone needs my assistance for articles outside of my comfort zone. I tend to make a lot of typos over the course of editing. So, if you come across any (even in my talk page comments), feel free to revert/fix them, and/or ask me for clarification. I believe in WP:BRD cycle; ergo, I'm always up for civil and meaningful discussions. If you have any questions regarding editing Wikipedia, feel free to ask at the Teahouse or my talk page.

Reconstructed skeleton

Irritator was a spinosaurid dinosaur that lived in what is now Brazil about 110 million years ago, during the Early Cretaceous. It is known from a nearly complete skull found in the Romualdo Formation of the Araripe Basin. The genus name reflects the irritation of paleontologists who found that the skull had been heavily damaged and altered by collectors. Estimated at between 6 and 8 meters (20 and 26 ft) in length, Irritator weighed around 1 tonne (1.1 short tons), making it one of the smallest spinosaurids known. Its long, shallow and slender snout was lined with straight and unserrated conical teeth. Lengthwise atop the head ran a thin sagittal crest, to which powerful neck muscles were likely anchored. A generalist diet—like that of today's crocodilians—has been suggested. Irritator inhabited the tropical environment of a coastal lagoon surrounded by dry regions. It coexisted with other carnivorous theropods as well as turtles, crocodyliforms, and a large number of pterosaur and fish species. (Full article...)

Picture of the dayEdit

Denial of Peter
The Denial of Peter refers to three denials of Jesus by the Apostle Peter, as described in the Bible. All four Gospels of the New Testament state that during Jesus' Last Supper with his disciples, he predicted that Peter would deny knowledge of him before the rooster crowed the next morning. According to the narrative the prediction came true when, following the arrest of Jesus, Peter denied knowing him three times. After the third denial, Peter heard the rooster crow and recalled the prediction, causing him to cry bitterly.

This picture is an oil-on-canvas painting by Gerard Seghers, depicting the Denial of Peter. If dates to around 1620–1625 and is now held by the North Carolina Museum of Art.Painting: Gerard Seghers
