The Interesting Button

Wikipedia has had a “random” button for years now, but this button is different.

Instead of a generating just any article, I’ve narrowed the list down to the 1,700 or so most interesting ones. The page that comes up could be anything—but I guarantee it’ll be good reading for at least a few minutes.

Know something I should include? Send me an email at, and I’ll take a look.

There are 1,712 pages as of January 19, 2022.
