The Interesting Button

I’ve been a collector of cool facts for my whole life, and I’m always eager to share them. So for the past six or eight years, I’ve been saving the URLs of encyclopedia articles that are, for lack of a better word, “interesting.” I wrote a program that opens one at random in a new tab; I call it The Interesting Button.

The button below will open a random Wikipedia page that will be good reading. The article that comes up might be funny, sad, scary, weird, offensive, or even NSFW—but I guarantee it’ll be interesting.

There are 1,328 pages as of December 17, 2020.
