Wiki articles[edit]

For it's comprehensive brilliance, it's well worth visiting Charles Darwin. 2009 commemorated the 200th aniversary of his birth. I'm also fond of the former featured article 2004 Indian Ocean Earthquake—a graphical tour de force, if ever there was one.

Another article to check out is Woody Allen. Whether you love or hate the man and his movies, his quotes and philosophical musings are nothing short of pure genius. Just click the Wikiquote link in Woody's 'External links' section.
