Hey pit, found something today that I kinda blew my mind...being quite bored helped.

If you go to ANY wiki page, and click the first link in the description that isn't italicized or in parenthesis, you will end up on the philosophy page.

EX)Football -> team sports -> sport -> organized -> corporations -> state -> social sciences -> umbrella term -> superset -> mathematics -> quantity -> property -> modern philosophy -> philosophy.

Try it! Post yours!

It's not quite true, it's possible to get caught in loops where the first link on one page takes you to the last and so on, but yes it does work a whole lot.

It doesn't always work, you can get stuck in loops.

Loops like a catch-22...
Wikipedia says it is a branch of logic...
logic is a branch of philosophy...

Holy crap...

Van Halen -> Hard rock -> Rock Music -> Popular music -> Music genre -> Genre -> Literature -> Fiction -> Narrative -> Latin -> Italic languages -> Indo-European languages -> Language family -> Language -> Human -> Taxonomy -> Science -> Knowledge -> Fact -> Information -> Sequence -> Mathematics -> Quantity -> Property -> Modern Philosophy -> Philosophy

Got there but took a while..

If you guys are able to find a loop let me know, cause literally everything I've tried is no loop-able.

Obviously this doesn't count if by loop you mean getting to the philosophy page then leaving it and arriving back...
#10
i tried it thrice, and each led me to a loop between "Greeks" and "Greek language."
There's no such thing; there never was. Where I am going you cannot follow me now.

Similar to the anal sex game. Basically, you give someone a start point and they have to go to anal sex. It can generally be done within 10 clicks. Person who gets there the least clicks wins and sets the next one
#13
i've tried several more things, and they all lead to "Greeks" and "Greek language."

i think you lose TS.

Holy shit. I can't believe it.

Bel Air, Los Angeles -> Westside (Los Angeles County) -> Los Angeles County, California -> County (United States) -> U.S. state -> Federated state -> Constitution -> State (polity) -> Social sciences -> List of academic disciplines -> Academia -> Community -> Interaction -> Causality -> Result -> Sequence -> Mathematics -> Quantity -> Property (philosophy) -> Modern philosophy -> Philosophy

You two aren't doing it right, I just tried it and when at Greeks the map goes

Greeks-Nation-Sovereign state-State-Social Sciences-Fields-Academic-Community-Interacting-Casual-Events-Adventure-Middle English-History of English-West Germanic Languages-Germanic-Indo European-Family-Language-Human-Taxonomy-Science-Knowledge-Facts-Information-Sequence-Mathematics-Quantity-Property-Modern Philosophy-Philosophy.

Done and done.

From the same angle, I can argue all articles lead to the mind.

Philosophy ->Existence -> Sense -> Perception -> Awareness -> Consciousness -> Mind

It all depends on where you draw the line. Not particularly impressive to be honest. Nifty, but not some sort of "holy shit" moment.

Nope.

Philosophy, Existence, Senses, Perception, Awareness, Consciousness, Mind, Panpsychism, Philosophy.

This is the final loop for from all articles that aren't in loops already.

but "Nation" isn't the first non-italicized link. "Greek" is, which goes to "Greek language"

That's the dumbest reason to be upset about a "game."

"I'd like to put hotels on the Yellows."
"But you only have 2/3 of the properties..."
"well that's just silly. you make too many rules."


Yeah, kinda dumb.

Well, it's official. Oprah Winfrey leads to Philosophy. God damn.

What, you mean at being called out saying that I was wrong?
Or talking to someone who has trouble reading directions?
Or having someone say the "rules" for a game are stupid simply cause they think so?

Nah, I'm not mad.

If you get to Education, it loops.

At least, that's what I've found.
