7 weird Wikipedia articles you’d probably miss

Wikipedia is the most popular informational website. As you probably know, the site consists of collaborations of people modifying content. Wikipedia was created by Jimmy Wales and Larry Sanger on January 15, 2001. Right now, in English, you can find 5.7 million articles, and 46 million pages, which have been edited 860 million times and looked at by 1,203 admins. It’s not surprising then, that there’s some weird stuff you can find on Wikipedia. And that’s what we’ll look at today.

In the case concerning Ms. Vincent, she lived in a flat, thus, would have had to pay rent. It states that "housing officials" investigated, so it sounds like some form of public housing. And it only took them 3 years to finally wander over to find out what was the problem? They were some real go-getters, I tell you! No grass growing under their feet!

I thought that “knocker uppers” (who walked the towns banging on windows to get people up for work) was the earliest.

I was SCUBA diving in a Quarry in the UK whilst an attempt of making a record of the numbers of divers ironing underwater was being made! Someone dropped their ironing board and it just missed my head whilst I was returning to the surface! Would have made an interesting Incident Report!

Love the clock setters, I hate ironing so much if I could do it on a Carrabean beach with a cocktail in a coconut shell I'd volunteer
