Childhood Misconceptions That I Still Can’t Get Over With

” Where did you read that?” asked Dr. A. “What is the source of this information?”

“Ma’am….I read it somewhere on Wikipedia,” answered my classmate.

Dr. A looked pretty annoyed and said, “I think you are old enough to quote proper sources. Wikipedia is for kids. You are grown ups.”

Wait what. Wikipedia is for kids!! When did that happen??

Before starting BS, I thought very highly of wikipedia. I used to love it. I used to trust it. But then I was told that wikipedia sometimes imparts unauthentic information. This happens because anyone can edit the information on it. So, I was told not to quote and use the name ‘wikipedia’ in the ‘References’ section. If we have to use wikipedia, then the resource of the required piece of information must be checked.

It’s so heartbreaking 😦

I Love Wikipedia. It is the most authentic website.

Internet knows everything. The biggest misconception ever.

Well, if you do know everything, then why don’t you know what I need to make my assignment and projects. At that time, you start acting dumb.

Trust me I know how to search. It’s just that the information available is not enough.


Do you have any such childhood misconception which you still can’t get over?
