The Best Wikipedia Pages Of All Time

Wikipedia! At times, it’s an endless stable of useless knowledge. For example, no one seems to appreciate the wealth of information I retained from one late-night tumble down the Romani people entry rabbit hole during a My Big Fat Gypsy Wedding marathon. Whatever.
Wikipedia is a veritable treasure trove of fascinating, unbelievable, weird, and shocking factoids about basically everything under the sun. For every dud entry, there are a thousand others ready to amaze you with everything you'll never need to know about fictional duck compendiums, the "small penis rule" (an actual thing that exists), and cosmic lattes.
Read on for the most fascinating, intriguing, and sometimes just plain wacky Wiki pages of all time. One caveat: Please don’t blame us when you resurface in three days, your brain swirling with factoids that won’t come in handy at your next dinner party...or ever.
