The problem with wikipedia

http://xkcd.com/214/

It's so true...

I can be reading some thing for a history test one day (e.g. stuff from the 1700-1800s) and end up reading about Ho Chi Minh and North Vietnam an hour later :/

Or worse I look up some Computer science term and I end up with 10-15 tabs open on related stuff ...

Oh why oh why did they invent the hyperlink !!

Actually, i just get some basic info from wikipedia. Just search it, and it gives me a list of articles that have to do with the topic. If you search on google or yahoo, wikipedia is usually the first site that the topic has anyways.

A while back, I looked up the article on the village I live in. It said that it "is widely believed to be the birthplace of Adolf Hitler."

I think that's the problem with Wikipedia.
