I really do love the way that Wikipedia pages can boil everything down into cold, hard CAPTAIN SENSIBLE factoids. I think its probably due to every page being edited over and over by the sort of people who know a lot about canals[1]. Today has been slow at work, so…

House Parties often nearly always feature food (e.g. buffet) and drink (often alcohol), sometimes music, dancing, as well as general conversation or social interaction (including that of a sexual nature). Consumption of illegal drugs occurs at some parties.

At my last house party I ended up so drunk that I forced several of my friends to play Mega CD Sensible Soccer with me. Which part covers that?

Pads may also be the sites of wild parties.[citation needed]

How exactly do you exactly cite references for that?

Conclusion: Wikipedia is aces.
