    Aaah, Wiki...

    It's such a handy tool for whiling away the hours. I love how I can start by looking up an article about something mundane, and then three clicks later I'm reading about some hideous disease, torture method or fetish. ...Which probably gives all sorts of wrong impressions about...

    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. ^.^

    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...

    Used On A Frequent Daily Basis.!

    If I can't get an encyclopedia, book version, I love to use Wikipedia as a resource. I find it informative. Most people keep saying its not a reliable resource. But for me I used it for my college essays and book reports and I've got an A- average. So it must be a great source. I...

    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 It certainly comes in handy although I did notice previously that some of the article were out of date.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 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...

    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.

    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 !

    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

    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...

    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.
