Random Collection of Information
« on: August 09, 2005, 07:36:45 AM »
Let's make each other smart. I think everybody should learn at
least one thing everyday. Something so important and profound
that it completely changes the way  in which they view life.

This thread is specifically for that purpose. Everyday someone
should post a page from Wikipedia. Something that will maybe
inspire them to do something important with their lives. If you
view the thread, you have to read the article. Force yourself if
necessary. Oh, and it has to be from Wikipedia, too; or else
the title of the thread won't make sense. :P

Only one article per day, and only one post/person per week.

C'mon. This idea rules. I'm trying to friggin' help society here!

edit: 7 February, 2007

Yeah. I changed the title to Random Collection of Information.
I saw a book like that at a house I stayed at. Thought about
making my own; something that I carry around with me and write
facts and things in. Various articles, etc. I don't know. The one
I was looking through at that house was just rad. So random.
Very interesting, though.
