Yeah, Wikipedia is TOTALLY inaccurate because "anyone can edit it". Yes, anyone can edit it, but unless it's backed up by a credible source, it won't be allowed by administrators. And, if it is, there is a note that says "This is not information from a credible source" ir "Citation needed". People who hate on Wikipedia for that reason are ignorant.

While rumor has it that the "rule of thumb" refers to an old law regarding wife-beating, that theory has been discredited. Wikipedia states it more likely refers to using your thumb to measure out an approximate inch. You could beat your wife with whatever you liked.

Micci1979 Are you aware of the fact that wikipedia can be edited by anyone? I could write that Elvis was alive and living in my basement. Please don't cite it as a credible source...

Wikipedia is pretty credible. Sure, using it as a source for reasearch papers and such will net you an F, but Wikipedia is great if you need general information. Every time someone edits a page, it is checked over by patrollers. Vandalism is usually fixed in less than an hour. Unfortunately, that particular article on Wikipedia needs additional sources and stuff. So use that information at your own risk.

I always thought "rule of thumb" referred to direction of magnetic lines in relation to the direction of electric current and... err... something or other, from physics class. It would always amazed me how something like that would make it into colloquial speech.

Women need to be trained like dogs. It's all their simple minds can understand.

What you said was mean and sexist. This isn't the olden days where women were treated like dogs. This is the 21st century. Women are equal of men and if you can't get that into your brain. Then your gonna have a hard time coping in life seeing all these free women
