I don't use Wikipedia, though. Usually for small, ongoing things where the article cites the source within the article itself. Tends to be a bit more tidy, but doesn't make it a conclusive source.

Ever notice how certain idiots on this site make presumptions about others by faulty induction? I don't give the slightest fuck about your 'facts' regarding a highly uninteresting, yet beneficial event. I just find it amusing that you consider a quiz show a decent source when all it does is pick the amusing truth out of the hat. Accepting that as a truth is even worse.

Good thing you're defending Wikipedia, because apparently all the other experts call them hogwash. That's why we need brilliant men like you to breathe air into something that was purely invented to be simple, not comprehensive.

Better than none.

You can find it amusing all you want, it doesn't make it any more incorrect. If you don't care, are you just commenting for the attention?

If by experts you mean internet people who have lost debates, then sure. Professors will tell you not to use it because they want you to do your own research, which can be done quite easily just be reading Wikipedia's sources. That's the great thing about a website built around the spreading of knowledge, if you edit too many articles like an idiot, they ban you from doing it all-together. If you do not cite enough things, they tell you to do it more. If you do not have evidence, they do not put it in, and will even tell you when certain points are inconclusive or ambiguous. Isn't that grand?

But, surely, someone like you who knit-picks about sources and validity would have already known that. Right? So either you didn't and you're talking out of your ass to seem smarter than you are, or you're still here rightly for the attention. You can take your pick, I'm fine with either.

Teachers and professors generally don't like the usage of Wikipedia because they generally don't refer to their sources apart from source listing, hence it becomes a hassle to properly source them. Not because they want you to do your own research. Some of their sources are outdated and/or have been proven false, and since you along with the majority who use that site will only cite the Wikipedia article, not go into depths about the studies themselves. Wikipedia is nothing more than cut-and-paste from various articles. As far as editing goes, edits without citation will be marked by administrators, and thus be promptly removed. Provided you source them something, doesn't even have to be relevant, it stays up until someone reports it. Try it out for yourself if you want. That, combined with how very few bother using the proper sources listed, lead to misinformation. Research is done by citing studies, not citing the abridged secondary version of studies.

I'm afraid the truth of it is that you either have a fundamental misunderstanding of how sources work, or you're just awfully apathetic about it. Either one seems to be futile to change. Please, continue citing Wikipedia and QI as much as you wish. No serious researcher or individual with power would take either seriously, so it's not of my concern how you argue pointless things.

The same listing they do in every sentence or paragraph?

Care to provide evidence that Wikipedia uses false information? Examples?

That's exactly how it's supposed to be. A gathering of all information about a certain thing.

Except it does. What was that author again, who cited himself as a reference for the inspiration of one of his characters, and they refused saying he needed more?

You're saying a lot, but you're not proving any of it. You're making all these claims that Wikipedia's sources are somehow bad or second-hand when you have provided absolutely zero proof of it actually being so. Can you provide it or not?

Then lucky for me, you are neither

What is there to prove? That Wikipedia uses multiple sources and list one for the article?If Wikipedia was to involve all sides of a case, their articles wouldn't be abridged to a third the size of a single source listed. All this discussion, and you can't even classify what a secondary source is. I think that just about sums up this discussion. Good luck on your studies I guess.

Everything you've been saying. If you can't prove it, you're only saying "Wikipedia uses bad sources and citings because I think they do"

Golly gee, that sounds an awful lot like backing out the moment you're asked to provide evidence for a claim, kinda like how you didn't on your other comment either. How funny.

Let's just say a historian won't take a few sources for granted. Secondary sources and descriptive sources from an unfamiliar view don't make for great sources, thus why correctly retelling history is difficult. QI is not the least credible source out there, but using it as a baseline is pretty much like using Wikipedia. The sources are listed, but you don't go to the bone.

That's funny, considering if Wikipedia was strong for YOUR point, you wouldn't be badmouthing it.

Ever notice that? People only talk bad about Wikipedia when it supports statements and facts they dislike? Well that's completely fine because both their nice little website and Wikipedia site their multiple sources. Would you like me to get them for you?

That was because he was drawing upon anger as a source of his firebending, which is weaker than life and he had little true anger.

After he learned the truth, even then he was only just learning to use it along with Aang.

Blue spirit episode? Fukken took a bolt from his father and almost killed him? Survival expert? Hes good. Might not be the best but thats because the avatar kicks ass, Toph is fukken blindand has to compensate and Katara is Katara.

is that such a bad thing though? if anything it adds to realism in which the power levels of the main heroes is varied, rather than all of them just becoming infinitely stronger.

He beat his uncle, who was a high ranked professional, before the show even began.
During one episode he disguised himself and didn't use any of his bending but still infiltrated and basically single handely took down a base full of fire bender soldiers.
Plus there's that whole one on one against Azula rekage thing that happened.
User avatar
#18 - captainfuckitall (09/28/2015) [-]
He didn't beat his Uncle, he beat a Fire-Bending Admiral with advice from his uncle.
He took down the soldiers with his swords.
Azula was suffering a mental breakdown.

but the mental breakdown was causing her rage, augmenting her firebending

#72 - fjkabob (09/28/2015) [-]
well, actually, it would make her stronger but it made her way less calculating, hence getting rid of her firebending teachers
#68 - detroitshanker (09/28/2015) [-]
Even though Azula was suffering a breakdown, she was considered a fire bending prodigy, even among the rest of the royal family and was always see to be a much more powerful bender than any of the heroes, it was still a achievement for Zuko to beat her.
User avatar
#19 - strum (09/28/2015) [-]
Well than he beat a high ranking officer.
Still beat a base of benders without bending.
And Azula didn't have a breakdown until after she lost.

If I recall correctly, he says that as a reason why it's okay for him to go at her alone (meaning she's weaker than usual)

#14 - zenler (09/28/2015) [-]
maybe he was just a weaker fire bender compared to other 'heroes' in the show.

or he never really wanted to kill anyone with his fire

#19 - Stevethewizard (09/28/2015) [-]
But...
Doom was revealed by the Wakandan (probably fucked up the spelling on that) Panther God, who can see not only the future, but all possible futures (and probably can see why kids love the taste of Cinnamon Toast Crunch) to be the only possible savior of humanity. Not just "Oh, having Dr. Doom take over the world wold also be a solution to all issues humankind faces," it was "I've seen every possible future, and the only one where humankind doesn't suffer needlessly is the one where Doom rules supreme." I'm not making this shit up.

I know you're not, he's my favourite for a reason. That same god also judged him pure of heart.

By comic standards, though; he is a villain and his alignment is Neutral/Evil (bouncing back and fourth between them).

I wouldn't say he's "evil". He's just kind of a dick. Mostly to people he feels insulted him, like Reed Richards, but also in general.
He's done a lot of good (built a device that detects Skrulls so that he could stop the Secret Invasion... I'd list other things, but I'm tired and cant be bothered to look stuff up), but his ambition is to take over the world. He wants to turn the world into as close to a paradise as possible, but people don't believe his intentions are noble, so they fight against him. This causes people to be prejudiced against him, because he fights against guys like Thor, Spider-Man, and Squirrel Girl, and they're all on our side, so he must be bad.

Yeah, Doom may be a villain, but he has a much stronger ethical code than most heroes, as he never hurts civillians and rarely even kills, and he is for the most part reactive to what the current situation is, so he may wish to protect the human race as aliens and other threats attack, and in what better way than to unite us into a strong and focused force by taking control?
