Amusingly Weird Gems Found in the Depths of Wikipedia

We don't have to tell anyone that Wikipedia is an invaluable wealth of interesting information and historical facts. But have you ever gone down a deep Wiki k-hole? It's like diving down to the ocean floor and discovering creatures of the unknown. For example, did you know 'Buffalo buffalo Buffalo buffalo buffalo buffalo Buffalo buffalo' is a grammatically correct sentence? 

Maybe you're already well-versed in all the bizarre factoids Wikipedia has to offer, but it's impossible to notice all the funny little idiosyncrasies and details that make the site special. It's fun to imagine future humans studying Wikipedia and finding the entry for 'Naruto run.' You're in for a treat because we've collected a bunch of strange findings from one of our favorite internet archivists, @depthsofwiki. Eat your heart out, Britannica.

Strange, Mundane And Charming Excerpts From The Treasure That Is Wikipedia

Wikipedia is an institution. It knows almost anything about everything, to the extent that if it doesn't show up on the first page of most Google results it feels like it's a problem. Every teacher who ever disapproved of it for being 'unreliable'? They were bewildered by its gift for cutting homework time in half.

However, the site doesn't just distinguish itself by being useful — it's also a fantastic time waster. Depths of Wikipedia documents some of the most interesting, bizarre and humorous things that grace the pages of this hallowed website, like the ones below. Ancient society may have had the Library of Alexandria, but we in the internet age have the ability to go down several hour trivia rabbit hole any time we want. And in a way, perhaps that's equally as great.
