wikipedia has been a great source for queen facts. The other sites i have been around to get information on queen are very similar. So I believe that a lot of people use that site a source to get information to post sites with queen tributes and stuff

great! thanks for the confirmation! :)

i was kinda doubting it at first, coz some of their info on roald dahl contradicted with what was contained in his official site. (i had to do a paper on him for english. hehe. )

So, let me get this straight... Wikipedia isn't on the Internet?

I apologize, but I'm a primitive specimen, and these concepts need to be explained to me in full.

Correct. It's on the corner of 5th and Main street, right next to McGoogle's.

I knew it! I just wasn't sure, and didn't want to say it, in case I'd look like an idiot.

Phew. I'll sleep well tonight.

On a more serious note... while Wikipedia has a bad reputation for being "inaccurate", I will argue otherwise. Like any source, the recipient of new information can decide for themselves how credible it is.

School teachers and professors essentially can teach anything they want. There are good ones and poor ones. Authors of text books, which can be years out of date, can say anything they want to. In both cases, opinions can be fused with facts, or in some cases, fallacies.

Wikipedia, on the other hand, is updated daily. How many textbooks currently include the new definition of a planet, with a list of planets and dwarf planets?
