New Wikipedia Game, Brought to you by XKCD

“If you take any article, click on the first link in the article not in parenthesis or italics, and then repeat, you will eventually end up at "Philosophy”.“ – xkcd

The game, then, must be played thusly:

1. Click Random Article from the Wikipedia sidebar. 

2. Click the first link in the article not in parenthisis or italics. 

3. Track how many clicks it takes to get to the article on ”Philosophy“. The fewer clicks the better.

First round:

From the random article on Kaga, Ishikawa, I got to "Philosophy” in 18 clicks. For added fun, track the path you took to get there:

This game proves that all things begin with Philosophy. (I once made up a variation of this game using the article on “Baby Got Back”. That proved nothing.)


Dear Tina Fey

In your book (which is wonderful, by the way), towards the end (SPOILER ALERT), you mention a theory:

I have a suspicion—and hear me out, ’cause this is a rough one—I have a suspicion that the definition of “crazy” in show business is a woman who keeps talking even after no one wants to fuck her anymore. … This is the infuriating thing that dawns on you one day: Even if you would never sleep with or even flirt with anyone to get ahead, you are being sexually adjudicated by these LA creeps. Network executives really do say things like “I don’t know. I don’t want to fuck anybody on this show.” … (To any exec who has ever said that about me, I would hope you would at least have the intelligence and self-awareness to know that the feeling is extremely mutual.)

There is also a point in your book where you address some ass-hats on the Internet who’ve written you ill-guided, semi-illiterate missives. So in the hope of becoming one of those ass-hats, I just wanted to say:

Every smart, funny, attractive boy I know between the ages of 18 and 60 wants to fuck you. Literally every boy. 

I just thought you should know.

Good luck with all your future endeavours, and thank you for being super-great.
