Wikipedia saves lives.

Or at least according to the note the above anonymous person left with his donation to the online encyclopedia: "I came here to find out about cyanide to kill myself…which led to other articles making me forget about suicide."

Just think: If he had looked up "cyanide" in the Encyclopedia Britannica, he'd be dead by now.

Which supports my long-standing theory: The Encyclopedia Britannica has led to countless deaths.
