I am now actively participating in a project which could, someday, destroy all modern thought as we know it.
Fakepedia is basically Wikipedia, but for lies. Hoaxes, frauds, rumors, anything which you could ever make up about a person. For example, George Washington ripped a cherry tree in half with his own teeth for what it said about his mother. Of course it’s completely inaccurate, that’s not the point. The point is, history would be better if it were true. Fakepedia embodies the best of Stephen Colbert’s idea of Truthiness – that how we feel about a subject is much more important than the facts of the matter. Kate Beaton aside, allegorical history is so much more fun than regular history. The myth about Lincoln being born in a log cabin is just as much a part of his story as his depression or the stove pipe hat.
