Bogus Wikipedia High School pages!

Wikipedia has become the true dictatorship of idiots! No legitimate scientist would be caught dead publishing anything on Wikipedia, for fear that some naughty child would change their words!

Evidently it happens all the time.

I recently heard of a group of naughty 8 years olds who have undertook a contest to see who can publish the most incorrect information on Wikipedia within 30 days.

This is what happens when you let anonymous children, crazies and drug addicts have the same credibility as a college professor.

See my notes here on why Wikipedia has a credibility crisis!

I’m surprised that the search engines have not adjusted their algorithms to shove Wikipedia back to the tenth page of the search results.

IMHO, it;s irresponsible for a search engine to gived credibility to anonymous publications . . .

Bogus high school Wikipedia pages!

I noticed that my alma Mater (Highland High School in Albuquerque, NM) has its own Wikipedia page!


The page is full or errors, even suggesting a connection to Beavis & Butthead:

"Highland High School is the basis of the Highland High in Beavis and Butthead, as creator Mike Judge grew up in Albuquerque.”

Like most everything on Wikipedia, this is totally incorrect (Judge based in on a high school in Richland Texas), but what do you expect?

Curiously, it does not mention my 1974 classmate, billionaire Gavin Maloof who now owns the Palms casino in Las Vegas:

Gavin Maloof: The first billionaire of the High High School class of 1974

See my notes here how millionaires and even billionaires are becoming commonplace,so maybe having a billionaire graduate is not noteworthy.

One out of out of every 180 people is a millionaire and America boats nearly 400 billionaires.

Me, I want to know who was convicted of the most felonies, the most divorces, the juicy gossip.

It’s fun to look at old high school year book pictures, here’s mine:
