Wikipedia is pretty cool. I like to edit pages and just change a single word but which will in fact change the whole meaning.

I worry for the reliability of facts in my papers, if that's the case.

Internets = not reliable.

Wikipedia is full of lies, there are quite a few pages there that are some made up bs.

And for the completely unreliable yet good parody... http://uncyclopedia.org/wiki/Main_Page

Wikipedia itself is useful, but you just have to be cautious about using it.

Indeed. Every time I see one, I'm adding it so people know how annoying they are. It needs to at least have SOMETHING like one of my traits though, so it's taking a while. Userboxes suck.

Me too.

Wikipedia is a good site but I have no interest whatsoever in being an editor.

The only one I edit on Wikipedia is the one about Farenheit

Towards the bottom it says:

# 40s Cold. Heavy clothing needed.
# 50s Very cool. Moderate Clothing required.
# 60s Cool. Light clothing.
# 70s Comfortable. Summer clothing.
# 80s Warm. Bearable. Minimal clothing.
# 90s Hot.

I can't help but change it to:

# 40s Cold. Heavy clothing needed.
# 50s Very cool. Moderate Clothing required.
# 60s Cool. Light clothing.
# 70s Comfortable. Summer clothing.
# 80s Warm. Bearable. Minimal clothing.
# 90s Hot. No clothing.

They keep changing it back though Sad
