Wikipedia

I know Wikipedia is not new by no means, but I do enjoy randomly looking stuff up.

I've found information on everything from video games to cars on wikipedia.

What kind of stuff do you look up on Wikipedia? Post a link, I would love to read about something I didn't know about.

I go for biographies of people I am curious about. For instance, when I was watching the television show, The Tudors, I became curious about Henry the 8th. I found out about his marriages, his life, and his children. I like that they have links in each page right in the information if something else catches you eye.

I saw a news article heading one day that included the phrase "Corpse Flower," but was unable to check it out. I went home and checked it on Wikipedia and was quite entertained!

Wikipedia can be a good source of information but be careful. If there is anything you really need to know the truth about, be sure to check other reputable sources. Unfortunately, the fact that anyone can edit Wikipedia makes it easy for misinformation to slide in.
