A useful thing to consider:

Most people don’t know English.

Another useful thing to consider:

“Ask him to point to where he thinks the monkey is going to go.”

They don’t point,” Everett said. Nor, he added, do they have words for right and left. Instead, they give directions in absolute terms, telling others to head “upriver” or “downriver,” or “to the forest” or “away from the forest.” Everett told the man to say whether the monkey was going upriver or downriver. The man said something in reply.

“What did he say?” Fitch asked.

“He said, ‘Monkeys go to the jungle.’ ”


The most important technical change that is needed in the software that runs Wikipedia and other Wikimedia projects:

One more useful thing to consider:

善行無轍跡
善言無瑕謫
善計不用籌策
善閉無關鍵而不可開
善結無繩約而不可解
是以聖人常善救人
故無棄人
善救物
故無棄物
是謂襲明
故善人不善人之師
不善人善人之資
不貴其師
不愛其資
雖智大迷
是謂要妙

Also this:

I am a contractor in the Wikimedia Foundation, improving MediaWiki's support for different languages. In that capacity, my username is Aaharoni-WMF. As a volunteer, I am also a member of Wikimedia Israel and of the Language committee. Unless otherwise stated, my actions from this user name are actions of a private volunteer Wikipedia editor that have nothing to do with the above organizations.


And maybe this:

I added these things to Wikipedia articles, but people removed them without a good reason. I have better things to do than to argue with them. Very few people will read them here, but it's better to have them somewhere rather than nowhere.

In the article Vitalogy:

In the video for the song Pay for Me by the Swedish rock band Whale a vinyl record labeled "Vitalogy" is seen.

In the article The Division Bell:

On some pages in the CD booklet the page number was written in different languages:

In the article International Phonetic Alphabet:

Some language study programs use the IPA to teach pronunciation. For example, in Russia (and earlier in the Soviet Union), textbooks for children[IPA-Russia 1] and adults[IPA-Russia 2] for studying English and French consistently use the IPA.

  1. ^ For example, the English school textbooks by I. N. Vereshagina, K. A. Bondarenko and T. A. Pritykina.
  2. ^ For example, "Le Français à la portée de tous" by K. K. Parchevsky and E. B. Roisenblit (1995) and "English Through Eye and Ear" by L.V. Bankevich (1975).

And this:

In sociology, Habitus comprises socially ingrained habits, skills and dispositions. It is the way that individuals perceive the social world around them and react to it. These dispositions are usually shared by people with similar backgrounds (such as social class, religion, nationality, ethnicity, education and profession). The habitus is acquired through imitation (mimesis) and is the reality in which individuals are socialized, which includes their individual experience and opportunities. Thus, the habitus represents the way group culture and personal history shape the body and the mind; as a result, it shapes present social actions of an individual. For example, this is the way in which the most important skills that are supposed to be necessary for writing in Wikipedia are reading and comprehending relevant reliable sources about a topic and writing about it clearly based on these sources, but the most important skills that are actually necessary for writing in Wikipedia are correctly using template parameters and citing the numbers of speedy deletion criteria.


Final useful thing to consider:

ਸਹੀ ਰਸਤਾ ਵਖਰੇ ਲੋਕਾਂ ਲਈ ਵਖਰਾ ਹੈ।
ਆਪਾਂ ਏਕਤਾ ਵਿਚ ਰਹਿਏ,
ਜੈ ਜੈ।
