COVID Got Me Adding False Facts On Wikipedia
I’ve been doing something mischievous that I’m here to confess! Ever since COVID-19 has emerged, we’re all spending our lives mostly in lockdown. It’s been all dull and boring. I’m a guy who’s all about fun and adventure and so, here I found myself, deprived of both..
One boring evening, I got this crazy idea of altering Wikipedia entries and this instantly ignited the long lost spark (of life basically) in me. It was such a great idea! I could mess with so many people just by sitting at home and doing almost nothing.
I opened my laptop and changed some facts here and there. Making up stories: some serious, some funny. I check these entries time to time but they remain the same. Good thing no ones changing it back to the truth haha.
I think it’s a really fun activity for me. Making a fool out of anyone who copy pastes these facts or even just read them off of Wikipedia. I don’t regret it at all. It’s people’s own mistake for getting their information off such an inauthentic source.
That was about me. What’re you all doing to keep yourself busy during lockdown?
