Barnstar of Reversion Hires.png The Anti-Vandalism Barnstar
Don't you absolutely HATE those PESKY vandals? Such a pain in the ass. What's so fun about vandalizing a wiki when it's just going to be reverted sooner or later? Yet even as I scratch my head some people (even adults that should "know better") find pleasure in replacing entire articles with "poopyface" or "I wuz here" or "OMFG I'M ACTUALLY EDITING A WIKIPEDIA PAGE" or "Hey Duncan. See, I edited this page." or the one that really irritates me, "Stop using this damn website where I can go and change the content of the pages. You're so stupid for coming here." And yes, a teacher wrote that once. To prove these nimrods wrong, we fight them with even less effort than it takes to screw the wiki over. And if they still don't listen - we can bash them with this barnstar. Or you could, you know, block them, like usual. K6ka (talk | contribs) 03:25, 7 February 2014 (UTC)

Quotes[edit]

Why isn't "use common sense" an official policy? It doesn't need to be; as a fundamental principle, it is above any policy. (see WP:COMMONSENSE)


False facts are highly injurious to the progress of science, for they often long endure; but false views, if supported by some evidence, do little harm, as every one takes a salutary pleasure in proving their falseness; and when this is done, one path towards error is closed and the road to truth is often at the same time opened (Darwin, The descent of man, and selection in relation to sex, p. 385) .[1]


A model is a lie that helps you see the truth. --Howard Skipper quoted in [2]


...our truth is the intersection of independent lies. (p. 423)[3]


Time is the school in which we learn.
Time is the fire in which we burn.[4]


My mind is a raging torrent, flooded with rivulets of thought cascading into a waterfall of creative alternatives.[5]
