Wiki Deep Dives

We've all been there. First, you couldn't remember Kel from Kenan and Kel's name. Not his real name, Kel Mitchell, but his show name, Kel…something, which you have to look up on Wikipedia, and was the guy from Good Burger who worked at Mondo Burger actually the lead singer of Sum 41? Hey, has Sum 41 released any albums since 2005? Whoah, Kelly Clarkson's “Since U Been Gone” came out in 2005, is that when American Idol came out? Come to think of it, what is Simon Cowell actually famous for…ah geez, now it's 3 in the morning and we know nothing about Kel Mitchell's character name on Kenan and Kel. Kel Kimble. Finally! Thank you!

Such are the perils of a good, long-winded Wikipedia deep dive. Yep, that site will take you anywhere, and you can trust people have at least put time into the entries. You certainly know every detail has been argued over. And, at the barest of minimum, visiting Wikipedia makes you better in bed.
