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.























http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Islam_in_Bangladesh (2013): 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.

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.

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".
