Why you all say me until like dat?
I was at a party last night. The conversation eventually turned to the popular story currently circulating on the Internet. That Mahathir is worth more than USD40 billion!
Ha! Who said one?
Wikipedia! My friend told me one. He read it in Wikipedia.
Why are Malaysians so eager to believe the story that Mahathir Mohd. is worth more than USD40billion because they read it or was told by somebody who read it in Wikipedia?
There is a list of heads of state (current and past) and their net worth on Wikipedia. But Mahathir's name is not on it. Unless there is another list that I didn't find.
Wikipedia is an online, open encyclopedia. Anyone can invent, update and post stuff on it.
Ya! If you want you can go there and update the entry on anyone and say they are worth billions or that they had sex with a menstruating camel while on a lawat sambil belajar trip.
While writing this I received another email from a friend telling me the 'sensational' story or Mahathir's USD40 billion. This time the email tells me that the story is spread by this website but when I went there I couldn't find the Mahathir billions story. How come ah?
