Yesterday, Wikipedia and a number of other websites went black to protest the Stop Online Piracy Act. But Twitter users helped out Wikipedia junkies by tweeting random “facts”.  They included: “The Plate was invented by Plato” and that “‘Star Wars’ is based on the lesser-known Shakespearean work, ‘Thy Force Be Stronge’”.  By the way… the Piracy Act now appears dead in Congress. 

- And to think I thought “Star Wars” was based on the Bard’s gay themed play, “Romeo & Hans Solo”.
