I like http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/List_of_film_noir_titles.

It's about to be ruined any moment though, so I keep making backup copies.

Dude.

Of 4,211,176 articles in English, I was on that very one only a few days ago.

I was looking for a list of cool names to use as regions on my map project in the foundry (I chose a list of traditional names of stars). Google sent me to the List of lists of lists.

I never believed and won't ever believe that the article on dinosaurs is correct in the species variety. This article HAS to have been raided, but nobody ever changed it... which is weird. I like to think most Wikipedia editors are also very fond of Jurassic Park and such.

from 2007:

Peace: The United States Air Force Wright Laboratory in Dayton, Ohio, for suggesting the research and development of a "gay bomb," which would cause enemy troops to become sexually attracted to each other.[106]
