Things I'm Obsessed With: Wikipedia

So I decided in the spirit of personal exploration to open up the pandora's box that is my browser history and find out just how much time I spend on Wikipedia. At first I thought "This will make an amusing post... I'll just list the topics that I happened to visit for a week and maybe elaborate on the more interesting ones." Sweet jebus, it was 377 entries in seven days. I know no one's going to read all that and I sure as hell wasn't going to do the links for that many entries. So I decided to just list the entries from just the weekend, when I have a bit more of a life. And for those of you who would chastise me about the "illegitimacy" of information found on Wikipedia I point you here, wikiality is real and Stephen Colbert says so. It's right there on the Wikipedia page for The Colbert Report. 

Without further ado... the 45 topics I simply had to research this weekend, feel free to click on them and join me in expanding your understanding of the universe: 


Richard Roeper








What did I learn you might ask? 

Kevin Eubanks, of the Tonight Show band, counts Ernest Goes to Jail as his favorite movie.

Firefly vodka isn't available in Manhattan, no matter how much I wish it was. Seriously it's the best thing in the south after Chik-fil-a, Zaxby's, and Beacon Tea. Oooh. I bet it'd taste great in Beacon Tea. 

Tom Bombadil wasn't included in the movies because he doesn't further the plot of the books and his existence really negates the need for a big quest in the first place since he's pretty much immune to the ring.

Also I learned that my thirst for easily-accessible, possibly-true information is endless.
