Just some random Wikipedia mistakes
Please read my essay here: Wikipedia as Force for Evil
and DON'T correct these mistakes: there are millions more mistakes on Wikipedia and every time you correct one you help people believe that there are no mistakes. You literally cause the problem.
Date of Klee's painting is wrong (2014).
Clear inconsistency because written by multiple people
No, the document doesn't use the expression "crimes against humanity".
This statement references a 1993 paper. Congratulations: the whole world is still looking for room-temperature superconductors but according to Wikipedia it's been around since 1993.
Apparently Bangladesh was not conquered by the bloody military campaigns of Bakhtiar Khilji and Muhammad Bakhtiyar Khalji but peacefully converted by a saint, Hazrat Shah Jalal.
This has long been proven to be a giant ball of gas.
In 2011 the same article began the history of sightings with this sentence:
"In the nineteenth century Baha'u'llah, the prophet-founder of the Baha'i Faith, who spent much of his life in prison or exile for his teachings, stated "Every fixed star hath its own planets, and every planet its own creatures, whose number no man can compute."
Domm's book is titled "Michigan Yesterday & Today".
Too bad that in 1901 the Olds Motor Vehicle Company produced a grand total of... 1.5 vehicles per day! What an amazing "mass-producing" assembly line.
"The Tale of Igor's Campaign is an anonymous epic poem":
it is neither rhymed nor organized in verses. The reason people think
this is a poem is that the first English translator called it "a poetic
masterpiece" but it was meant as a compliment, not as a description of the
Hmmm i wonder which major corporation based in Seattle "influenced" this article...
Too bad that 1. It was not an internet browser (Microsoft was famously late in
understanding the Internet) and 2. WEB never shipped (nor did Cairo, just bits
and pieces of it, but Cairo was mostly considered an embarrassing failure,
so much so that you probably never heard of it). The only thing that is true
is that it was called "browser" (by sheer accident) but it had nothing to do
with what was later called "browser".
My 2011 article on Wikipedia's inaccuracies also quoted:
- "Thirty-Two Tales Of The Throne Of Vikramaditya written by famous author Simhasana Dvatrimsika": Simhasana Dvatrimsika is simply the original title of the novel. (If i had to guess, they simply looked at Amazon that lists the book as "Simhasana Dvatrimsika: Thirty-Two Tales of the Throne of Vikramaditya" and understood the first part to be the name of the author instead of simply the original title in Sanskrit, and then they added "famous")
- "During Kadar's rule, Hungary was stabilized and liberalized to an extent never before seen in any Eastern Bloc country"
(Let me guess who wrote that sentence: family members of Hungarian dictator
"It later emerged that the Communists had only won both of these votes through massive fraud"
(Well, there was fraud on all sides in those Polish elections. There was certainly intimidation and many members of the other big party were jailed, but the reason the communists won is much more complex - see for example Grenville: "A history of the 21st century" page 340)
- According to this Wiki-article instead (drum roll) Ford had already installed assembly lines in France and Britain in 1911. I'll let you check how many cars Ford sold in 1910, 1911 and 1912 in the whole of Europe (absolutely no change and it's a very tiny number).
