Wikipedia, bitches!

Post by Bordo on Tue Jun 21, 2011 11:22 pm

Someone needs to update the Shock Totem entry in Wikipedia with the Issue #4 TOC.

Quite frankly, it's the only way I'm ever getting an entry on that site.

I mean, except for the page which credits me with inventing the orange. Full disclosure: I put that entry up myself. It's not true.

But don't tell anyone. Pinky swear?

Cool.

I didn't realize Wikipedia was quite so editable until a few months ago when my partner was looking up info about blisters. I was beside her and she was reading the info aloud. She soon said that the jelly formed under blisters tasted like strawberries and could be used as jam on toast. Because we assumed Wikipedia was totally legit, we believed this for about ten seconds, albeit frowning. Then we realized we were being fucked with and began laughing. Funny as it was, though, I don't trust Wikipedia quite as much as I used to. I mean, is Elvis REALLY dead?

I need to redo that whole page. The design isn't very good.

I use wiki as a starting place, especially for finding academic articles. Look at the sources and ignore the article itself.

@Kuro...I agree. It's a good jumping off point. That's about it.

@Ken...Not telling you how to handle your business but, when you re-do the page, if you wanted to simply reference me as "Dr. Awesome, PhD" that would be great. Thanks.

Sorry, but I'm already Dr. Awesome, although it's an honorary degree. We'll have to come up with something else for you. How about "Bordo the Super Funky Love Machine"?

Ooooh. Yeah. Uh, I'd be totally down but my mom kind of goes by that. Has for years, actually.

It'd just be awkward if we both showed up to church next Sunday with the same t-shirt and all, is what I'm saying.

I wrote something fake but true-sounding about Edgar Allan Poe on Wikipedia and now I can't remember in which article, so I can't go back and revert it. I do feel slightly bad about this.

I would have never thought that a site open to editing by the public would be viable. I'm constantly surprised that wikipedia isn't just thousands of pages of pictures of dicks.

On the other hand, I never would have guessed that there was a veritable army of obsessive/compulsive shut-ins with time on their hands to meticulously edit the thing, either.

Shiney,

I know, ten whole seconds to realize the Wiki entry was sabotaged. But there's more to the story. A demon, yes demon, was coming down our chimney head-first at the time. And when his head appeared, letting him see into our lounge, red flames came to life in our fireplace, blistering the demons scalp ... even more. So we looked up cures for blisters on Wikipedia ... only to encounter a Wiki entry less than encyclopedic. Sure, it took us 10 seconds to realize it contained a joke sentence, but hey, an upside-down demon head was looking at us, calling us shit-suckers and God's gift to nothing. So we were a bit distracted.

Updated: http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Shock_Totem

I still need to find a better design.

"...it all sounds intriguing..." remarks Jats drawn in by all those demons and things Shiney was swirling about "...though I can't see what you are on about, now that it's fixed, though I had seen you were on Facebook and Twitter before, though you can follow everyone on twitter now, tv programmes, coca cola, the baker, the candle stick maker but for the life of me can't think why people do...so what did it say then to those not in the know, and any clues..." Jats wonders before catching up on last nights East Enders

The design looks good. Clean, easy to navigate, has my name in it.
