Not surprising, my school frowned upon information taken from Wikipedia.  I myself only use it for tv/movie plots and info.

Early on, I found I could not trust it even for that! I don't recall which film it was, but I remember reading a description and thinking "…that's not what happened. . . "

Just took a look at the entry for Arthur C Clarke's novel 2001. The site notes that one nation launches nuclear weapons at another in the book's finale, when, in fact, the missles were launched at the Star Child.

Yeesh.

Recently I took a glance at the page allegedly presenting facts about me. Once again, most of the information is incorrect, sometimes subtly, sometimes wildly. Even things I corrected have been "edited" back to their former inaccuracies. (Someone, somewhere seems determined that my American citizenship will never be listed accurately, for instance.)
