Anyone else like to browse wikipedia and find something remotely interesting when they're bored?

You could maybe browse the spelling of "they're", and how it differs from "there"...?

But yes, and it can lead you on all sorts of informational journeys!

I do enjoy hopping along links in wikipedia. Sometimes I can't remember where I started. :D

I like Wikipedia surfing. Pick 2 totally unrelated topics. Start with one topic and try and get to the other by just clicking links. No cheating.

I'll pick something from the frontpage and start reading till I come across something else interesting.

I'm doing it as well. Usually I start by clicking one of the links featured on the Wikipedia front page, only to end up reading about something entirely unrelated to the first article I had read.

Yeah I'll open one page, then end up opening a dozen tabs on linked articles, then work my way through and repeat. Favourite topics seem to be sciencey stuff (especially physics) and recent history. It's amazing how much there is to know :p

I actually read at least 2 or 3 Random articles a day just as part of my day.

Me to. I thought maybe I was the only one but I guess not. I find it fun to think of odd names for towns and see if they really are such places. Amazingly they are.
