How do you spend your time? I spend mine every day trying to remember what I cam into this room for. How else would I spend my time?

Wikipedia is without a doubt one of the most addictive websites I've been too. What is wikipedia you say? Its an online conglomeration of articles about everything you'd ever want to know. You know the saying, the world is full of books? Yeah, wikipedia completely proves that.

"But why did he say its addictive," you're saying out loud right now. No? Can you say it out loud right now to make that last quote right? Right.

So here's the long and short of it. I like reading. Unlike most people I enjoy it. I'll read before I watch TV. That's right, I said it. So having a sight that answers a good deal of my scientific (and sometimes stupid) questions is great. Couple that with my increasingly short memory, and I can literally read the same stuff over and over again and enjoy hour after hour, day after day. Ignorance really is bliss

I also enjoy Wikipedia's random article link. For instance, Asdhoo is one of the uninhabited islands of Kaafu Atoll. And ponton is the German word for pontoon. Chandra West? She's just one of few Canadian females to have made the successful screen transition from television to film. You get my drift, I guess. The best part are the links within the article which take you to yet other articles which have links in them which. . .yeah. So you can waste a lot of time (waist a lot of thyme) on Wikipedia. So there's the link up there. Get to it.

I don't know if I could be trapped in a world where everything I did was erased at the end of the day, only with me having to start over and do the same thing again. I'd go crazy Oh wait, I just described getting up and going to work everyday. That explains a lot.

I was reading about Myanmar on Wikipedia the other day. No idea why. It just makes you want to learn. I also noticed the JMZ article on there has been updated by people who aren't me, which is just creepy.
