 Hello Maya's teachers,
 Maya will be drastically reducing the amount of homework she does this year. She's been very stressed and is starting to have
 physical symptoms such as chest pain and waking up at 4AM worrying about her school workload.
 She's not behind academically and very much enjoys school. We've consulted with a tutor and a therapist suggested we lighten
 her workload. Doing 2-3 hours of homework after getting home at 4:30 is leaving little time for her to just be a child and enjoy
 family time and we'd like to avoid her sinking into a depression over this.
 Thank you for understanding.

People should thank this man
Sorry Jennifer not everybody can look like Chris Evans while doing a huge service to the general public. 
Anyway this guy is amazing.


Did you see the video? He has such a glowing personality and his eagerness to share knowledge is infectious. 


some people will take any chance they can to dehumanize fat people  

theres also been a motion to write more articles about women because the gap in articles about men vs articles about women is astronomically huge, and he鈥檚 written hundreds or thousands of them and is a huge proponent of this. he鈥檚 done a lot of great work and he spends countless hours a day researching things so that we have access to that knowledge. he鈥檚 a hero. he doesnt do it for money either, tho apparently his regular job also involves research. but he does this purely because he believes in how important it is for information to be free. 

he鈥檚 done 600 articles on women as a part of this push for more

He looks like a nice guy and I know people like to sneer at it but Wikipedia is a good, ACCESSIBLE starting point for learning about things, so like, haters can fuck all the way off.

鈥淗ow much money do you make from this?鈥濃淣one.鈥
鈥淪o why do you do it?鈥
鈥淭he idea of it, making it all free, fascinates me. My mother grew up in the Soviet Union. So I鈥檓 very conscious of what it can mean to make knowledge free. To make information free.鈥澛
how can you hear that and think anything other than that this is a brilliant, kind, generous man
