no, this is neither “interesting”, “curious” or “odd enough”

To everyone who has ever added anything to the “trivia” section of a wiki, or inserted a largely unrelated fact because they think it’s interesting, here’s a useful trick to greatly improve the quality! Just ask yourself this question:

– Would this comment/factoid look awkward and out of place if written simply and directly, ie not couched in cringing pseudoacademic handwringing and/or limp superlatives insecurely attributing it some relevance and notability?

If yes: Then don’t pollute our screens with your pointless esoterica, you cruft-spewing cockroach.
If no: Good, but don’t pollute our screens with your weasel-word horseshit, you miserable speck of trash.

Also, stop using the word “clip”, you’re almost always wrong.
