** "Baldy. Your head it bald. It is hairless. It is shiny. It is reflective, like a mirror. M. Your name is Mark."
*** Well, a common technique for remembering names is to associate the name with a prominent physical characteristic. And for some names, that takes considerable mental gymnastics.

A Wiki Walk is a train of thought that left the track and is RidingIntoTheSunset. When going for a Wiki Walk you know where you begin, but no one knows [[HilarityEnsues where you'll end]]. Are you a MadScientist building an [[KillSat orbital death ray]]? Well, too bad, inspiration struck and now it's [[NinjaPirateZombieRobot the world's biggest dancing dish washer with a fully adjustable cup holder]]. You want to have a {{serious|Business}} talk about the Middle East? Within ten minutes you'll be arguing whether [[Franchise/StarWars Darth Vader]] [[UltimateShowdownOfUltimateDestiny could take]] [[Literature/TheLordOfTheRings Gandalf]] [[UltimateShowdownOfUltimateDestiny in a fight]]. Just want to check the RuleOfCool page? Before you know it you're adding examples to BunglingInventor. You, my friend, have just had a Wiki Walk.

Back when the books were written, it was probably great fun to read, [[ViewersAreGeniuses if you were reasonably educated and followed the news.]] These days, it's mostly confusing.

** The man sketched instructions for a nuclear weapon in the margins of a sketch of a flower. He thought it might make a good mining tool, but had no military application because no-one would be willing to use it (a ShoutOut to Nobel and dynamite).
