If you end up on the page for "human", you get trapped in a circle.

@Lanz No you don't. The first link would be living.

http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Human
The first link is "taxonomically", which will bring you on a loop along the pages: human, taxonomy, Ancient Greek, Greek language, Latin, IPA for English (it's a pronunciation page), English language, West Germanic language, Germanic languages, Indo-European languages, language family, language, human.

@Lanz Taxonomically is in parenthesis. Living is the first link.

...somehow, I think that was meant to relate to the pronunciations (which means my list above was technically incorrect, but it will bring you back to "human" either way), but using "living" as the first word will get you to philosophy, yes.

"Academic" forms a loop! I'm just glad I'm not the only one who has been wasting their time desparately trying to prove this post false.

@ThatOneNut No it doesn't.... http://ctrlv.in/26620

Crap, you're right. My mistake. Am I correct in assuming we're not using those 'this article needs citations' boxes? 'Synonym' redirects to the German word 'synonym' and back again in the 'Wiktionary' it directed me to, and the first link on the 'Christian' page is a sound file. If those don't count, I concede.

And then you reach the cycle of doom:
Reason, Rationality, Philosophy, repeat.

i used Harry Potter and Glee and it worked for both.... i think it's because you come across knowlege or information eventually and its all the same from there!
but still very cool!!! =D

I tried scrolling through the comments to see if anyone had posted this and i didn't see it, so here goes. I'm not sure if its because wikipedia changed, but most of the searches that were commnted all went from"Mathematics" "Quanitiy" "Property" "Modern Philosophy" and then "Philosophy". But now, on every search I do tht leads to "Property", the article starts out,
"In logic, modern philosophy..." where logic is linked before modern philosphy, sending me into an endless loop. Am I doing something wrong, or did these two words ruin a big chunk of all the searches that could have worked?

I know this is very late, but this post in conjunction with the xkcd comic led some people to change the wording to mess it up and in turn made others try to change it back. It started a wikipedia wording war, making the effects from the post only work at certain times.
