On a lighter note

Continuing the theme of "how not to edit wikipedia" I bring you

Anouncement [sic] of damnation of wiki: That because in conspiracy of a group of Darwinists the encycopledia in practical effect surpresses [sic] freedom of expression, I hereby damn the encyclopedia.

from User:Syamsu [1]. Amusingly, that's in an unblock request; I don't think it will be successful. Its all about some argument at [[Free Will]]: people always have silly opinions about such things.

Assuming foolishness is indeed normally distributed, someone among us is the most sensible individual to ever walk the earth; they know exactly what to do to solve any problems humanity may have, and if they became the leader of the entire world there would be boundless peace and prosperity for all. Unfortunately they're probably far too sensible to speak up ;)
