Default Wikipedia

Does anyone have some interesting topics for me to check out? What are your favourite?

Tonight I have been checking out these:

Betty Grable - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia
Atomic bombings of Hiroshima and Nagasaki - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia

Interesting thread, yay for Wikipedia fans!

I like, besides broadening my knowledge of music, gathering information about languages and specific countries:

Etymology - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia
Ethiopia - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia

That's pretty cool, it sent me to some wiki page about 'Umpolung'
Which in organic chemistry is the chemical modification of a functional group with the aim of the reversal of polarity of that group.

But im so stupid i just thought of Oompa-loompas.

*Oompa song*

"What do you do when you ain't very smart?
Looking in wiki what is 'Umpolung'
But when you get there you don't understand
could it be possible you're-f*ckin-dumb?

It's-a-possibility."

I used to have a similar homepage, but it was for random Jack Handey "Deep Thoughts":

The More You Know.™


Draught beer - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia
Hmm, I always assumed 'draft beer' (oh sorry, I mean draught :/) was always the same thing, but apparently some are better than others. Also never realized how complicated it is; but 21st century improvements sure do make it easier!
Now I know why it so damn expensive, (always worth it though).
