In case you are counting down the hours until works ends (hmm…who could that be?), training for Jeopardy (also sounds familiar), or just want to kick your spouse’s/friend’s/lover’s butt at Trivial Pursuit (bingo!) here’s a great list of interesting articles on Wikipedia to keep yourself entertained. The list is from the Copybot blog and kept me entertained for a while. As a librarian, I’m all for vetted, published, researched and cited sources but I don’t think the “Seattle Windshield Pitting Epidemic”, “Globster”, or the “Harrowing of Hell” can be found in the Encyclopedia Britannica, or at least not in such detail. Have fun with this one!
