The alt text of this xkcd comic is:
wikipedia trivia: if you take any article, click on the first link in the article text not in parentheses or italics, and then repeat, you will eventually end up at philosophy
Evan and I decided to test this.
Star Trek: 12 clicks
My Little Pony: 18 clicks
kettle: 15 clicks
Sapphire & Steel: 16 clicks
beer: 13 clicks
South Africa: 14 clicks
…. this would probably be less mindblowingly hilarious if it weren’t 4:30 in the morning, right?
No it is totally as mind-blowing as it sounds
which is to say VERY
This is my new version of the airport game. Best thing ever!
I actually managed to break this one time. I ended up on an article (I wanna say it was the one on aqueducts, but I don’t recall precisely?) where the first link went to another page and the first link on that page took me back to the previous one. So I basically ended up in a loop.
That wasn’t about philosophy.
But I haven’t found any other pages that this’ll happen on yet.
If the link takes you partway down the page, is it the first link from there or the first link from the top of the page? Because if it’s from there, I found a three-part loop first try: Solids –> States of matter#The three classical states –> Bonding of solids –> Solids.
Otherwise it’s 14. (From Hurricane John (2006), the page of the day.)

What does it say about me that my reaction to this was, not anything about pronouns or word usage, but rather “I wasn’t unbeatable at Turmac Roll, but I was pretty good. I haven’t played Turmac Roll in ages. I should go play some.”
