Based on the achievements accomplishment points awarded in the recent episode of CheckPoint, I've made this page to generate your own Checkpoints.

Inspired by today's xkcd and the discussions on the xkcd forum, I've made a graph of a random selection of Wikipedia articles, and where you go after clicking the first link on each page. Do you really end up on Philosophy every time? See the results to find out!

I just want it on record that I am personally against giving the government free reign on what is or is not appropriate, or what I can or cannot see. No two people draw the line between "appropriate" and "inappropriate" in the same place, so any government-prescribed line will miss the mark for many, if not nearly all, people. And the potential for systemic abuse is way too high.
