The Best of Wikipedia is a Tumblr blog with a very simple mission: discover the most bizarre, unusual but interesting articles that exist on the digital encyclopaedia.

For example, did you know that there is an actual uncombable hair syndrome, complete with medical references? Or how about phantom rings?

Phantom rings are the sensation and false belief that one can hear his or her mobile phone ringing or feel it vibrating, when in fact the telephone is not doing so. Other terms for this concept include ringxiety and fauxcellarm.
