When I was younger, I read Wikipedia daily for several hours to acquire assorted knowledge and procure ideas for later, more detailed research. Although I’m not quite as good at making time for this anymore, I continue to get my routine tidbit of information by keeping http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Special:Random my home page. This link can be used to access a random article; understandably, every time you visit it, you should see something new.
This has really kept me grasping at interesting pieces of information. The idea, as could be expected, is Cyril’s.
