Where WSPD and WWJD meet

Oh My




History Hoax




Hoax article detailing fake war stayed up on Wikipedia for five years

For the last five years, those who spend their time procrastinating on Wikipedia could read up on a 17th century war between colonial Portugal and India’s Maratham Empire known as the “Bicholim Conflict.”

The problem is that Bicholim Conflict never happened, and that the entire 4,500-word article on the war was nothing more than an elaborate joke. ... the writer of the article still hasn’t been identified. [Full]




HOWARD ZINN DID STUFF LIKE THAT!!
Rollover Answer!

Yup, the Zinnmeister speacialized in making shit up.
