Goat Killer launches new website that plagarizes Wikipedia

by: Eric B.

Mon Jan 06, 2014 at 00:51:57 AM EST


Goat Killer launched a new website that is as hilarious as it is painful to look at. Among his many crimes against creativity is probably a thin act of copyright infringement of the film Top Gun, but also outright plagarism of Wikipedia. From the page called The Ready Room.

A ready room is a room on an aircraft carrier where on-duty pilots ”stand by” their aeroplanes. Each flight squadron has its own individual ready room. Large squadrons, such as torpedo and dive-bomber squadrons, can have more than one ready room. Most ready rooms are located between the flight and hangar decks, but some are located on the flight deck.[1][2]

It was the word "aeroplane" that caught my eye, mostly because no right-minded American would dare to use such European styling. Also, the notations at the end that lead nowhere. So, I done plopped those into the Google machine and it spit out ... that Goat Killer plagarized Wikipedia. Originally, I thought he'd maybe just outsourced the content writing for his website to India. No. It was much worse.

P.S. I have a screenshot. It is here.

 

By the way, you might be interested to know that the U.S. Navy no longer includes in its inventory aeroplanes that are dive bombers or torpedo planes.

Update! ... Cropped the photo file from the original screenshot, taken very late at night when I wanted to go to bed, to something more manageable on your screens. I still have the original picture in case anyone tries to dump this down Ye Olde Memory Hole. I also note that the logo he uses for the website looks like a pretty flagrant act of copyright infringement from one of the most watched American films from the 1980s. So there is also that.
