Pat, Hillary, and Bootsy
Posted by Sam at 3:44 PM | tags: ,

Today is a very special day in history. Let's see, according to the Wikipedia, October 26th is the birthday of Pat Sajak, Hillary Clinton, Bootsy Collins, and... WTF!? There is a glaring omission in that list of 10/26 birthdays. Lucky for me, this is the Wikipedia: an all encompassing online encyclopedia, for the people, by the people, where no knowledge, no matter how arcane or useless, is exempt! In fact, their main page even reads, "Welcome to Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia that anyone can edit." If you find an error in an entry, well, just log in and change it! It's the people's encyclopedia... no need to be an authority on a subject, just be a schmo with internet access and an opinion! And, being a schmo of similar classification, I'll just log in and correct this minor oversight. Gimme a sec...

[insert mind-numbing elevator muzak here]

"...that anyone can edit!?" Not likely. My edit of the October 26th page lasted just about .25 seconds. Screw you Wikipedia! I'm starting my own free encyclopedia... one that only I can edit. It will be the true source of all knowledge on the internet, because its authors will be reputable... a.k.a. they'll all be me! And my first entry will be the following:

2 years of mindless drivel and infrequent updating.

God bless Sam.

Sam Who!?
Sam is an amazing and humble guy. Once, he rushed into a burning building, up six flights of stairs to save a kitten from certain death. He speaks eight languages, has mastered three varieties of martial arts, is a wine expert, and is a pulitzer prize winning author. Sam is an international heart-throb who prefers a quiet evening at home knitting afghans for the homeless, to the go-go, glitz and glamor of the party scene. I think the day he won the silver medal for ballroom dancing at the 98 olympics was the happiest of his life. Pretty impressive for a guy who never finished the 8th grade. - Carrie, 04
