‘Depths Of Wikipedia’ on Twitter opens you to interesting (and sometimes absurd) trivia worth reading

Have you ever browsed the net, looking for some strange and unusual facts?

For curious minds out there, stay with me because this one’s for you.

Did you know that there’s an actual syndrome called “Student Syndrome,” which refers to a student’s procrastination, in which a student will only start to apply themselves to an assignment at the last possible moment before its deadline (if this isn’t relatable)? Or that some people actually celebrate National Moth Week? Or that there’s a polygon called “65537-gon” with 65,537 sides? Or that the computer mouse is actually named for its resemblance to the rodent?

“No” might be the answer from most of you, unless you’ve already discovered Annie Rauwerda’s Twitter account, “The depths of Wikipedia.” The young writer gathers the most bizarre (and at times hilarious) entries that you can find in the free online encyclopedia, Wikipedia.
