When flame tanks target dictionaries

Sometimes writing article on Wiki is like planting a seed and watching it grow with amazing speed. Just few days ago - on 2nd Nov - I created a stub for flame tank. Over past 4 days it increased in size well over 10-times...

Wikipedia goal is to collect all human knowledge. Looking at examples like that I belive that it can do it in less then one decade.

And if that happens, who will want to use printed encyclopedias or dictonaries? When the ex-CEO of Britannica predicts that they are as doomed as dinosaurs...I am not the one to argue.

Onward, to the new world. One more tradition bites the dust.
