I found this list of Wikipedia Categories on a blog. The blog itself uses a bit of language but definitely SFW. I ended up spending a pretty long time on Wikipedia checking some of this stuff out.  Links to stuff like the Dyatlov Pass Incident and man-eating catfish. Thought you guys might like it.

I'm new to this forum and think it's pretty awesome. Figured I should share though as its better to give than to recieve.

Not stupid at all. It's a great resource. You just have to know not to take anything at face value and be willing to dig a little deeper to make sure the references are accurate...

A friend of mine wrote about the Dyatlov Pass Incident for our blog and I think she found other proof of a reasonable explanation.

Nice one.

I just came across this Wiki article that I found interesting, It's nothing special but has a lot of other good links as well.
