The aliens who stumble across these nine Wikipedia pages in space may be too shocked to make contact

Star Wars

If aliens do stumble across Wikipedia as a result of scientists beaming the website into space, they may come across these bizarre and interesting facts.

Experts at California’s The Search for Extraterrestrial Intelligence Institute will apparently use radio telescopes to make contact but after viewing these pages, the aliens may not reply.

9. The Star Wars Jedi Knight census phenomenon

If real Jedis discover Wikipedia they’ll be pleased to know there’s a lot them already on Earth.

That’s according to several censuses, which were filled out by people who put down the order as their religion.

8. Spite houses

People build homes just to spite each other when they have disputes.

When Joseph Richardson wasn’t happy with an offer he received on his land in 1895 he built one such home to annoy the bidder.

5. Bullet proof vests

When you’re a convicted criminal like late rapper Ol’ Dirty Bastard (ODB) (which means people may want to kill you) you’re not allowed to wear a bullet proof vest.

PS: He wasn’t killed by a gunshot.

3. Small penis rule

Saying someone has a small penis can save you from a libel lawsuit as no-one wants to admit they have a small penis.

The crafty rule was thought up by some authors in America when writing about people in books.

2. List of unusual deaths

People die in very silly ways as shown in this Wikipedia entry. They include dying by laughter and having a horn pushed up your anus.

1. Dancing Plague of 1518

Dancing uncontrollably for days is also one of the silly ways in which they die.
