Death from overdose among women has increased 4 fold in the US over the last 10 years. Synthetic opioids (increase of 1643%), heroin (915%), benzodiazepines (830%), prescription opioids (485%), cocaine (280%), and antidepressants (176%)... Crazy.

I remember riding a bike with a large catheter down my noise in university for 200 CAD.

We also ship miniature computers that distribute Wikipedia in an offline environment for the cost of the underlying hardware. And tell people how to make them themselves if they so chose.

This is crazy. Facebook has paid to become undeletable on peoples phones.

English Wikipedia's medical content received about 2.2 Billion pageviews in 2018 (that means the average English speaker read two medical articles last year). Now I need to figure out readership for the other ~300 languages of WP.

You can develop tolerance. Will need to see if I can find a reference for that and add it to the article.

The number of new people coming on line is dropping per the guardian. Appears the future of offline may be greater than one would have previously thought.

New on the blog, my ninth installment of The Top Ten Wikipedia Stories of the year. I hope you enjoy it at least as much as you enjoyed 2018 :)

We try our best. Still important to use common sense though.

Just because I go to another country does not mean that I automatically speak the local language. Please STOP switching my language every time I move IPs.

Should be able to move it into or maybe. You just need to make it under an open license.

This is another amazing read. Big content players trying to have it both ways. Members of the EU parliament need to consider this more closely.
