Deep Thoughts with Drek the Uninteresting
An encyclopedia is a really stupid idea. I mean, seriously? A book that contains an entry on everything? What the hell?
As a side note, I should probably add that I agree that Wikipedia is not as stupid a notion as a traditional encyclopedia and, likewise, that in a bygone year encyclopedias made more sense. Even so, however, a book that fails at breadth and depth simultaneously leaves something to be desired.
