Here’s a link to something you probably don’t know

I’ve always liked this particular link. I can pretty much guarantee that there will be at least something on the other end of it that you don’t know.

How do I know that?

Well, that link takes you to a random page on Wikipedia. Since the English version of Wikipedia has over 5 million pages, the chance of you hitting one on a subject about which you have any reasonably complete knowledge is really quite small. (At least, it would be for me!)

So, go ahead, click it and learn something new!

(If, by any chance, you hit a page where you find the subject matter somewhat uninteresting, then you can instead marvel at the fact that somebody found it interesting enough to create a page about it!)

…Spins the wheel…

I get:

Michał Szyba, Polish handball player
Natural regional park of Serre
Rupert William Hanley, former South African first class cricketer.
Clothar the Frank, Canadian historical fiction
St. John’s Catholic Church (Fryburg, Ohio)

That’s 0/5 interesting to me, unfortunately. This isn’t particularly surprising actually, since according to Wikipedia’s statistics, 92% of articles are ‘Start’ quality or worse.

Got Something To Say:

Your email address will not be published. Required fields are marked *

To create code blocks or other preformatted text, indent by four spaces:

    This will be displayed in a monospaced font. The first four 
    spaces will be stripped off, but all other whitespace

    Markdown is turned off in code blocks:

To create not a block, but an inline code span, use backticks:

Here is some inline `code`.
