os gajos da wikipédia voltaram a cravar-me

E eu voltei a pagar. Pouco. Apenas o suficiente para me sentir menos culpado de fazer uso episódico de uma extraordinária ferramenta que é oferecida sem qualquer encargo a todos os que possuem acesso à rede. E para poder dizer que todos os que o não fazem – podendo fazê-lo – não vão além de ser miseráveis ténias parasitas.

Desta vez, no ato de pagar, anexavam um questionário. Estava numa de generosidade e quando estou assim não há nada que me faça parar.

...

7. Is there anything we could do to make Wikipedia better for you?

You could ask my government (the portuguese government) to fund you; I pay all the taxes they ask me to pay, free education is a constitutional right, and you provide the most extraordinary and revolutionary mean to achieve it. To everybody. So, they should fund you with some of my taxes money. Symbolically, at least. That would establish a precedent for wich I would be very proud (of my government and my country). I've been thinking to write to my government precisely about this matter but  I'm a really lazy  person.
PLEASE, do it for me. 
You are formally authorized to quote me and use all my personal information! You can find all the addresses you need around here (oh god, I'm so lazy...). 
Try the president (Mr. Marcelo Rebelo de Sousa). He is a funny guy that tries to hug and kiss everybody and even offers money out of his own pocket to old ladies in order to pay their burial expenses.
PLEASE, DO IT FOR ME, PLEASE!

...

17. Please tell us how Wikipedia has affected your life. Please be specific. For example: "There was this one time when...."

I had a ton of encyclopedias and used to raise my ass whenever I needed to be sure of anything.
Not anymore.
I left them to my ex, so she could have some more dust to clean and be proud of her grandfather.
