DOES WIKIPEDIA DO THE NEW MATH ??


I want to congratulate one of our friends from the UK who new the WTHAI person as Eubie Blake. I didn't know who this person was, so I hit the link and read some of his biography. The one interesting thing I noticed was his age. Wikipedia has him listed as living to 96 years old. Correct me, if I am wrong. Mr. Blake was born Feb. 7, 1883 and died Feb. 12, 1983, this would've made him 100 years and 5 days old at the time of his death (96 years isn't correct !!). It is nice to know that Wikipedia is one of our fine sources for questions, quizzes and other sources of information. Wasn't life a lot less complicated when all you had to do was look it up in your Funk & Wagnell. Good old "Laugh In".

is there a way to report the error on Wiki and get it corrected?

(Remember when F&W was the source for clues on the original "Jeopardy" with Art Fleming. A set was also given to contestants as parting gifts.)

Funk & Wagnalls also achieved pop culture status on Rowan & Martin's Laugh-In [ "look that up in your Funk & Wagnalls"] and even our popular Sploofus celebrity "Carnac the Magnificent" told us the questions were "locked up in a mayonnaise jar outside of Funk & Wagnalls doorstep".

Cheynn, anyone can "edit" a wiki. That is both it's strength and greatest weakness.
