Have you seen what the Internet has become over the past 20 years?

Wikipedia is one of the last sane parts of this whole experiment.  Which needs a deep cleaning.

I donate once a year. I use them a few times a month, so I figure I should help support them.

My mom taught me to read at an early age.  By the time I was 3, I was reading the "Tree of Knowledge Encyclopedia" for entertainment.

My favorite volume was S, because it had the entry for Space.

But, unfortunately, it also had the entry for Snake, along with about 20 full color panels.  I skipped right past those pages, and was afraid to even touch them if I opened to one of them accidentally...

So, yea, I've spent an unusual amount of time browsing wikipedia... lots and lots of history, especially.

/history gets more interesting the older you get
