Reminder that Wikipedia is not to be trusted. It is run by a small group of "elite" editors who use their powers and prestige on the site to stifle any dissenting opinions.

Every Breath You Take by The Police is such a fantastic song. It seems really romantic at a first glance, but then you realize that it's actually a really creepy song about a stalker. Marvelous.

Tip for essay writing: Block quotes are an excellent way to arbitrarily lengthen your essay. Use them whenever you have a minimum page requirement.
