Wikipedia Celebrates 750 Years Of American Independence

July 27, 2006

From The Onion (link via Arts & Letters Daily):

"At 750 years, the U.S. is by far the world’s oldest surviving
democracy, and is certainly deserving of our recognition," Wales said.
"According to our database, that’s 212 years older than the Eiffel
Tower, 347 years older than the earliest-known woolly-mammoth fossil,
and a full 493 years older than the microwave oven."
