    Wikipedia Game

    Has anyone ever heard of this?

    Step 1. Go to a Wikipedia article. Literally any of them will work.

    Step 2. Click on the first link (blue word) of the article that is not in parenthesis.

    Repeat Step 2 on the new article, and if you continue to do this on the new pages you will undoubtedly be brought to the Philosophy page.

    I've read the average number is about 23 clicks, I'm interested to see if that number is close (If I get anyone to play )

    I started on Copernicus, and it took me 16 clicks to get to Philosophy.

    Wonder how long it would take if we started out with David Hume or Ludwig Wittgenstein?

    I put in John Adams 2nd President. It kept gong on the 3rd or 4th click back and forth between the United States Constitution and Supremacy Law. Didn't work unless I did something wrong, which is a possibility.
