Man, I hate when I forget to do my own meme.

Time to learn something!

1. Go to Wikipedia.

2. Click on "Random article" in the left-hand sidebar box.

3. Post it!

It's hard to believe I went an extra 24 hours without knowing this:

Ísbjarnarblúswas the first solo record released by Icelandic songwriter Bubbi Morthens.The album was released on June 17, 1980 in co-operation with Bókaútgáfan Iðunn. Within three days, the record went to second place on DV best-sellers list and it was on Iceland's top 10 best-selling records list for 5 weeks.

Done and posted on my site!

I was very afraid this week when I clicked random and you know why....

Thankfully, the cosmos did not collide like it did last week:

http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Connected_space

Connected space

Connected and disconnected subspaces of R². The space A at top is connected; the shaded space B at bottom is not.In topology and related branches of mathematics, a connected space is a topological space which cannot be represented as the disjoint union of two or more nonempty open spaces. Connectedness is one of the principal topological properties that is used to distinguish topological spaces. A stronger notion is that of a path-connected space, which is a space where any two points can be joined by a path.

It is usually easy to think about what is not connected. A simple example would be a space consisting of two rectangles, each of which is a space and not adjoined to the other. The space is not connected since two rectangles are disjoint. Another good example is a space with an annulus removed. The space is not connected since you cannot connect two points, one inside the annulus and the other outside; hence the term "connect".

I don't understand.
