    Wikipedia Owns

    Wikipedia owns. Its not as cool as tuppaware, but still pretty cool. I strongly recommend you get stoned as you possible can then get on the wikipedia website and research teodora indepth whilst listening to heavy metal in the background.

    Great For Most Things

    but from time to time you'll search for something and not find any realinfo on it, or find info, but in the form of opinion stated as fact. Still a great site and concept, just make sure not too use it when researching a paper or writing a speech, etc

    Triumph

    The other day, my husband was talking about turbinado, the raw sugar that lots of people put in coffee. I said it sounded like a fish. He refused to believe that any fish had a name similar to that, but I looked it up on Wikipedia, and there it was, shining like a beacon in the...

    Great Resource

    I sometimes find myself playing the wikipedia endless link game. I'll look up something, see something related in the article, think "that's interesting", and click on that. The pattern continues until I suddenly realize I spend an hour reading about stuff I wasn't intending...

    Surfin!

    I love to follow links on Wikipedia.  If I am reading a topic and I see a subject that I know little about    CLICK    and then I continue to educate myself.  People claim that wikipedia isn't the best source of info, but it works for me...

    Random Article Button

    I am obsessed with it! Ok so a lot of the random articles are pointless crap that I don't care about, but every once in awhile I find something worth reading that I normally wouldn't even think to look up otherwise. ^.^

    Love It!

    When I got Internet Explorer 8, they let me put wikipedia as an option for my search bar, so no matter where I am, I can just type in my search box and directly search Wikipedia...it's a beautiful thing.

    I Donated One Us Dollar to Wikipedia

    Useful

    I find it a useful tool. While it may not be everything, it certainly helps if you're researching a topic. I have even made my own updates where I can verify it from other valid sources or through local knowledge.

    Useful

    I like Wikipedia and use it for looking for random stuff - ie meanings for certain words or to find out information about people. It certainly comes in handy although I did notice previously that some of the article were out of date.

    I get a kick out of clicking on linked articles

    or even clicking on the "Random Article" link. Were it not for Wikipedia, I'd have never known what a "glottal stop" was. :-)

    Why I Love Wikipedia

    I just love how anything you want, almost anything you want to know, is just a click of a button away... If it weren't for Wikipedia, then it would be a lot harder trying to find information - I know anyone can edit it; but that makes it better so there's always someone who knows...

    You Can Find Anything !

    I often wondered how it'd be if wikipedia didn't exist. My school homework'd last much longer to do. You can find almost everything there- and I love that it's open and everybody can participate. Even when it can be abused. Just- thank you Wikipedia for everything !

    Most of the Time

    I love searching through all the articles and finding out things I didn't know. The one thing I don't like though is that wikipedia can't give a straight answer. I wanted to know how protein is good for you, but, no, wikipedia didn't mention that, just went on about amino acids...

    I Can Read Stuff For Hours.

    I can read stuff on Wikipedia for hours. Often I'll search one thing, and I'll find so many other things through the words that go to another link. And then I'll have ten different tabs open and will try to check them out. Of course, I also check out the links on the tabs I...
