What is Wikipedia?


WQUlrich sounds like a real name, but it's actually a reference to a novel: The Man Without Qualities.


"I am not only convinced that what I say is false, but also that what one might say against it is false. Despite this, one must begin to talk about it. In such a case the truth lies not in the middle, but rather all around, like a sack, which,
with each new opinion one stuffs into it, changes its form,
and becomes more and more firm."



"What this country needs is a good 5¢ philosopher".

There is an old story about Socrates. One day, a student of his was at the Agora and saw him browsing through the stalls. In utter amazement, he approached Socrates and said:

"Master, you are always telling us to lead a simple life with few possessions, yet here you are in the world's biggest marketplace. I'm puzzled. What can be the explanation?!"

Socrates replied:

"Like you, I often become sad and depressed. When that happens, I always come here because it cheers me up to see how many things there are that I don't need."

When I'm feeling stupid or ignorant, I come to Wikipedia because it cheers me up to see how many things there are that I don't need to know.

Was reviewing an article that I ended up reverting back to your last edit, and I decided to take a look at your profile. Low and behold, it's hilarious. Thanks for your good humor, dedication to Wikipedia, and apparent lack of need/desire for barnstars (but I'm giving you one anyway). Jackson Peebles (talk) 17:06, 28 March 2013 (UTC)
