THE NILE[edit]

where does the nile river start? —Preceding unsigned comment added by 205.215.177.149 (talk) 18:36, 5 November 2009 (UTC) meadetranan sea!!!!!

Actually, it ends at the Mediterranean Sea. The River originates in the mountains in central Africa. But, the point of where it originates is an interesting one. The article claims that the Blue Nile begins in Lake Tana, in Ethopia. That is incorrect. If you look at any decent map of Africa, you'll find that the Blue Nile originates in Lake Albert and flows northward from there. The river that originates in Ethopia is more likely the White Nile River which flows westward toward Khartoum where it meets the Blue Nile that flows northward form Lake Albert. In any event, this entire article has a mix of correct and incorrect information that creates a great deal of confusion as to the origin, flow and geography of the Nile and needs to be re-written. — Preceding unsigned comment added by 69.126.66.236 (talk) 14:26, 3 August 2014 (UTC)

James May and the "geographically illiterate search for the source of the river Nile"[edit]

Quoting the The Independent[1]. This claim doesn't belong in the article - Top Gear is an entertainment program, not to be taken seriously for this. No reliable sources corroborate this claim. Dougweller (talk) 12:01, 26 September 2014 (UTC)

Hieroglyphs in lede[edit]

Would it be better to use WikiHiero markup to include the hieroglyph name of the Nile inline, rather than the currently clunky uncaptioned image referred to as an aside by the text? --McGeddon (talk) 12:18, 26 September 2014 (UTC)

If you read the article, and look at the map included, you will be able to find the answer to your question. IdreamofJeanie (talk)
