Occasional online observance...

From Britain Loves Wikipedia
Did anyone ever go to the library every day of the week? They do now and today it's such a 'quick' library: January 15th is the 15th birthday of that library, started in 2001.

Interestingly - well, it surprised me - only just over 13% of the articles are in English, "The English edition of Wikipedia has grown to 5,056,487 articles...Wikipedia has over 38 million articles". I always assumed most would be in English but didn't expect that percentage to be so low! Care to guess what the language with the 2nd highest amount of articles is? I bet you can't guess it right without cheating; and I'd also bet £1000 that you couldn't guess the Top 10 languages with the most articles: there's one or two surprises
