Things that don't appear in the Encyclopedia Britannica, but Wikipedia covers in depth

by Dom Glennie

Number 1

Wikipedia has a substantial article on a chap called Rainz. He is a human player in an online game called Ultima Online, and is responsible for a famous incident where he assassinated another, supposedly invulnerable, player called Lord British. He has also made a nuisance of himself by morphing into a chicken and killing off 'Games Masters', and organising an invasion where none of his army wore any pants.

The Encyclopedia Britannica has nothing.
