    It's Wikipedia. Anyone can hack it


    I remember once I was on the Black Sabbath page then clicked on a link to Ozzy Osbourne. It said stuff like "he has a big dick" and "we had lots of fun in bed" and other weird shit. Another time I was on United States of America and it had "THE UK STILL OWNS AMERICA"

    funny how when I go to the history of that page, there's someone saying they know who YOU are, "Optimus Major".

    Showing off your handiwork?

    Pfft, Wiki lies again.

    The Zodiac died in the 90's.
    I know that for a fact.

    Also this reeks of suspicious fish.

    I've seen two amusing Wikipedia hacks.

    The first was during the E. coli scare at Taco Bell. All that it said was "Taco Bell makes yummy tacos. Yummy tacos don't get E. coli."

    The other was less than half an hour after last Sunday's Metalocalypse. Danbury, CT's page said nothing more than "It's more brutal than Norway".

    It amuses me that people hack Wikipedia.
    You could just edit your message in, in this case that Zodiac stuff.

    Even just doing it on every 25th random result or something, see how long it takes people to notice and remove it.

    Funniest hack I saw was of the Jurassic Park site, (I think that was the one) with the new logo and words Jurassic Pond.

    Definitely not the worst hack I've seen. When Heath Ledger died, someone edited his page to display a large, explicit picture. A guy I was working with told everyone in the office to go to that page... I was about the only one new enough not to know to avoid what he said. At the time, the office I was in was a large room with a bunch of desks (no cubicles), and right behind me was a solid wall of glass... I was so glad there wasn't a meeting going on in the room on the other side, there were often meetings with important clients there...

    No doubt. Someone had to be a really busy beaver to "hack" all 2,466,773 English articles on Wikipedia. I'm picturing some supercomputer built by a guy who's fried his nervous system with a ton of caffeine.

    I don't see how a song about llamas is really relevant to the topic at hand.

    Unless you are suggesting that llamas hacked wikipedia? :lolol 
    The llamas are coming for our internets! All of them!
