Do you ever just start looking up random shit on Wikipedia even if you know what it is already?

I was just talking to someone about freshwater, like, as opposed to seawater, and I decided to read about it on Wikipedia as if I didn't already know that it's just water with little to no salt concentration in it.

I end up in some weird places following Internet searches. I started yesterday reading about an English cricketer suspended fir Tweets he made 9 years ago, and ended up reading about the long snapper position in Americzn football.

There's a lot more to say about the differences between freshwater and seawater, apart form the obvious fact that the NaCl concentration is much higher in seawater.

[@6579,BlueMetalChick] Did you use freshwater or seawater to make the wonton soup?

[@6602,helenS] Fresh, of course, but I did add salt to the broth after it was done cooking.

Oh yeah, often, I can spend hours on Wikipedia reading random encyclopaedic entries.

I usually find out mundane things like that after going down a rabbit hole of something else entirely... So according to one of my coworkers, actual vanilla is taken from a beaver's ass.

Google maps is great for looking up random stuff. North Korea is just weird.
