We recently asked members of the BuzzFeed Community to tell us which Wikipedia articles they love to waste time reading. Here are their recommendations…

1. Unit 731
Suggested by Lurker8.

Unit 731 was a unit of the Japanese Imperial Army that carried out brutal (and, in many cases, lethal) experimentation on human beings during World War II under the guise of chemical and biological research. For the majority of the time it was active, the unit acted under the command of General Shiro Ishii, and was responsible for the deaths of up to 250,000 people. The worst part? Instead of being put on trial for human experimentation, the people involved with the unit were granted immunity by the US government in exchange for the data they had gathered.

While I found the concept of a “Wikihole” fascinating, the first suggestion was shocking!

Once again the US Gooferment does the unthinkable and the unforgivable.

The blood of a ¼ million human beings is on that “data” and amnesty.

Argh!
