Quick tip No. 11

Wikipedia is really all about philosophy.

I just found this out from; specifically, this comic's alt tag text.
"Wikipedia trivia: if you take any article, click on the first link in the article text not in parenthesis or italics  and then repeat, you will eventually end up at Philosophy."
I tried it twice. With the speed of light (took 8 clicks), and Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles (took 15 clicks), and it totally happened. (As a side note, what does it say about me that those were the first two articles I searched for when testing this hypothesis? Your comments are appreciated.)

Tuna sandwiches takes 21 clicks. What does it say about me that that was what I chose to try it with? Possibly that I am hungry. What is the philosophy in that??

It takes 23 from watermelon. It's my go to word, that and fishfood which that one took 29. Super interesting! And really, why wouldn't you search TMNT?? :)
