Extraordinary claims. Ordinary investigations.

Unusual articles on Wikipedia

Llanfairpwllgwyngyllgogerychwyrndrobwllllantysiliogogogoch

Wikipedia actually has a page listing “valuable contributions to the encyclopedia, but [that] are somewhat odd, whimsical, or something you wouldn’t expect to find in Encyclop√¶dia Britannica or similar”.

It’s worth hours and hours of lurking through fascinanting entries such as the village of Llanfairpwllgwyngyllgogerychwyrndrobwllllantysiliogogogoch (complete name sign above), Toynbee tiles, Project Mohole, the mythical Utah teapot, the Man-eating Tree

In short, Forteana on the Web 2.0.
