Computer, Define "Down the Rabbit Hole" - The Thread of Interesting Wiki Articles

Bulgakov

Yes, that Russian author.

Here's a place for the interesting Wiki articles you stumble across when you're researching random things late at night. Feel free to post anything from Wikipedia, TVTropes, The Snorks fandom wiki. Wherever, so long as it's something you want to share from a collection of articles!
 

Bulgakov

Ever wonder why nations have the right to, y'know, be nations? As far as international law is concerned, it's all based on the principle of Westphalian Sovereignty, which comes from the peace agreements that ended the 30 Years War in the mid-1600s.

How come more people aren't making all the movies, comics, etc about Vidocq. He's got one of the most perfectly fictionalish life stories and the best we get is a movie by the guy who did Catwoman?

When "Years of Wandering and Prison" is one of your Wikipedia subheadings, and it includes descriptions of the man's repeated prison escapes with the help of his ex-girlfriend, I feel like there's at least some room for a dramatization there.

I can't decide what I like more. The idea of "let's use neutral fake bridges to make everyone feel good about our currency," or a Dutch city planning department looking at them and thinking "Yeah, it's worth the resource costs to troll the entire EU on this one."

I was recently reminded of an old Wikipedia joke, where apparently people were going around writing overly detailed and verbose synopsises for hip-hop songs. Sadly, most of them have been edited since, but looking through history, I found this gem, for instance.

My main takeaway is that the Egyptians perfected the mod floral design pattern and color palettes, long before the 1960s.

It was a better time.
