Happy birthday, Wikipedia 🎉

Wikipedia turned 20 years old on January 15, 2021!

Wikipedia has contributed to free and widely available knowledge like probably no other platform. Showing the world the true power of collaboration on the open internet and what a great cooperating community is capable of. ❤️

ICU beds in 5 Malaysian states are at least 70% occupied. The Kuala Lumpur Hospital is at 100% due to the virus…

TIL older school Chinese food restaurants in Korea deliver food with actual plastic plates meant to be returned. They also hire their own staff to do the delivery and retrieval. After eating you set the plates outside your door in a bag and they come pick it up. This was already normal way before most other delivery food got popular, so it's ingrained to the point where modern delivery apps (like Baedal Minjok) accommodate it and let restaurants elect to use their own staff and do this

Of course when you tried to record a website on Firefox's private browsing mode (Android), it's just simply pitch black… 🤣
