"Wikipedia's articles are no place for strong views. Or rather, we feel about strong views the way that a natural history museum feels about tigers. We admire them and want our visitors to see how fierce and clever they are, so we stuff them and mount them for close inspection. We put up all sorts of carefully worded signs to get people to appreciate them as much as we do. But however much we adore tigers, a live tiger loose in the museum is seen as an urgent problem." --WP:TIGER

Wikipedia Celebrates 750 Years Of American IndependenceEdit

"The Revolution's main adversaries were the patriots and the people from Braveheart," said speaker Tim Capodice, who has edited hundreds of Wikipedia entries on subjects as diverse as Euclidian geometry and Ratfucking. "The patriots, being a rag-tag group of misfits, almost lost on several occasions. But after a string of military antics and a convoluted scheme involving chicken feathers and an inflatable woman, the British were eventually defeated despite a last-minute surge, by a score of 89–87."[1]

2019 redefinition of SI base unitsEdit

Hi Guy Macon, the subsection "Impact on reproducibility --> Uncertainty of fundamental physical constants" is marked as original research and has no inline citations, so unless it's fixed by the time I reach it, I probably won't copy-editing that subsec because there's no point working on text that's liable for removal.

I've done as much as I can with the article; you'll need to address the unreferenced nature of the text I mentioned. I haven't touched the mathematical markup, tables or formulae. Good luck with the article. Cheers, Baffle☿gab 00:16, 18 May 2019 (UTC)
