Yes, this post is about that crazy left-wing genocidal socialist bastard, Adolf Hitler.
There is a new game going around the interwebs. You open the Wikipedia home page and on the left you will see a link to Random Article. Click that link and you will be taken to a random page. At this point, you now have to click no more than 5 links to get to the Adolf Hitler page.
Let me give you an example:
Tijuana Cultural Center (random page — you start here and don’t count this page)
4.) Nazi Germany
5.) Adolf Hitler
Arja Nuolioja (random page)
1.) Gold Medal
2.) Olympic Games
3.) National Socialism (Nazism)
4.) Adolf Hitler
Down in four!
It is actually quite addictive. The challenge is to choose the not-so-obvious links to get started. In the examples above, Religion and Olympic Games were the easy choices. The trick is to see if you can choose something obscure and still win.
My son told me (tongue in cheek) that because of this — the ability to get to Hitler in 5 clicks or less — Nazi Germany and Adolf Hitler are, in reality, the center of the world.
See if you can do it. I knew there was an actual real use for Wikipedia.
