What's to expose? People did what people do in Wikipedia all day long.

People are acting as if this is a big deal and somehow improper. It's just as proper as people putting information in that may be inaccurate or biased.

Wikipedia is a poorly controlled free for all and no one should be surprised or upset when stuff like this happens.

It's a great big So What?

1. Change a tire, fill the radiator, change the battery, change the oil (at least know how to check it).
2. Understand the plumbing system in your home.
3. Know how to cook without a microwave and prepackaged foods.
4. Basic navigation...at least know the difference between North South East West.
5. Basic understanding of firearms.
6. Read a map and get somewhere without GPS.
7. How to sharpen a knife.
8. Long division, multiplication, etc...with a pencil and paper.
9. How to swim.
10. Make fire.

Time to go home, so that's all you get.

The Force is what holds everything together. It has its dark side, and it has its light side. It's sort of like cosmic duct tape.
