A quick thought about Wikipedia

If I went to wikipedia.com, and did a search for "wikipedia", would that start a chain reaction of never ending self opening links that would quickly crash the internet?

Nope. You just get this: Wikipedia - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia

Off topic a bit...

But try doing a Google search for "recursion" and see what happens.
Have a look at the "Did you mean:" bit :P

Probably you'd get a lot of links like "
Get your Wikipedia for less at annoying.keywordfarm.biz!"

That's pretty funny. Wasn't sure what you were talking about at first, then I thought I misspelled it. I guess it's a little programmers humor.

Yay, I'm glad someone got it
Someone at work showed it to me... Yes probably someone at Google's sense of humour.

It's about as funny as algorithmic design III in college. Recursion, polymorphism, basic binary tree design and writing recursive functions to traverse the trees - it was the weeding out class. About half the class changed to web design because of it.
