Wikipedia Club #4
On this warm morning, Tiana, Marcel, Jake, and Helen gathered in the town square to share some of their Wikipedia findings.
Tiana - Dike Swarm
- Like Earth's wrinkles; makes her feel good about aging.
- Ancientness is fascinating, some dike swarms are billions of years old.
- Something once chaotic with built up pressure from magma, is now very calm.
- Tiana's favourite dike swarm
Jake - Dion McGregor
- American songwriter known for talking in his sleep.
- Sleep talking, walking, and sex are all very X-Files; nobody fully knows why these things happen.
- Jake sometimes sleep talks, especially upon waking up.
- Dion McGregor - The Dream World of Dion McGregor (Full Album)
Marcel - San Francisco fog
- Nostalgic; Marcel grew up in this area and remembers the fog fondly.
- Fog inspires creativity - for mediums like music and visual art.
- Nice to walk through, hard to drive through.
Helen - Snake wine
- Growing up in Shenzhen, China, Helen finds snake wine to be nostalgic, now that she lives in Canada.
- Snakes are widely believed to possess medicinal qualities and the wine is often advertised to cure everything from farsightedness to hair loss, as well as to increase sexual performance.
- The culture around snake wine prioritizes using an entire animal - not wasting anything. Snake wine is a good way to use a whole animal.
