Sometimes what’s been deemed “verified” on Wikipedia seems too strange to be true. In Wikipedia for the Weird, the Daily Dot tracks down the most bizarre and entertaining entries on the Web’s crowdsourced encyclopedia, sending you down the rabbit hole even further.

The Internet loves lists. That is a fact! We love putting things in order, determining their value, and shrinking all the important information down to digestible bullet points.

Even Wikipedia, home to some of the most unnecessary and superfluous details, is obsessed with lists. They are even obsessed with lists of lists of lists. And to please the Wikipedia gods, I am now going to attempt what no person has before: a list of lists of lists of lists.

From all my years of Internet experience, this should literally be the most viral article of all time.
