    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

    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. ^.^

    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...

    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...

    The World's Greatest Online Encyclopedia

    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 Do I Forget The Obvious?

      Why do I forget the obvious? Wikipedia, The Peoples' Encyclopedia So often the answer is there - one click away! We have to remember it is written by 'us' (can be edited by anyone!) and so can sometimes include errors - however that being said it is a quick way...

    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 !

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 It certainly comes in handy although I did notice previously that some of the article were out of date.

    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.

    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...

    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...

    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...
