  • I've seen it on two front page stories. One was about what the government of AB could have spent surplus money on and they listed things like "10 hospitals, 2 bullet trains, etc, etc" and below the pictures had "source: wikipedia". I forget the other one.

  • Another was on the front of the business section, talking about peak oil. The graph from wikipedia predicted oil production would be zero by 2030.

  • Another was for a sidebar on Nancy Pelosi following her inaugration, which was also on the front page.

  • The metric thing drives me crazy. I do not think in feet or miles - the only thing I use is pounds, and thats only for people, and only on occasion. I can't visualize a mile, but I can a kilometre. Gawd...

    And seriously, are you that offended by "labour"...

    Grrrrrrr...
