Psychedelic mathematician and RealityCarnival blogger Cliff Pickover has launched a fun new blog, WikiDumper: The Official Appreciation Page for the Best of the Wikipedia Rejects. Cliff combs the submissions that the Wikipedians have flagged as inappropriate and preserves the best of them for posterity. The site's slogan is "Knowledge's Last Chance." I'm hooked. The first week's collection of Wikipedia rejects include such masterful entries as a list of songs about hair, drunk blogging, the Bonkum brand of sexual position furniture, and a list of celebrity laser eye patients.
