Wikipedia for Dunces – Simple WikiPedia

February 22nd, 2007 · No Comments

I came across simple.wikipedia.org. Just like en.wikipedia.org and de.wikipedia.org, the “simple” wikipedia aims to explain things in a “simple” language. But saying you want to explain something using simple English doesn’t create a new language called “simple”, folks!

Also, maybe due to it’s immaturity, you can now find gems like, “Electricity is the flow of positive electricity in a metal.” D’oh. That is real simple. If I don’t know what electricity means, I sure can understand that electricity is the flow of positive electricity.

There is a point after which simplifying science degenerates into into insulting the reader’s intelligence. Some people have way too much time on their hands.
