As you may know, Illogicopedia is a useful tool for academic research. But did you know that this very site is used for other purposes? A team of experts from Liverpool John Moores University (well, a team of one self-proclaimed expert) have conducted studies into Illogicopedia usage and have found that Illogicopedia is utilised for a wide range of reasons.

Ego boost[edit]

Scientists have concluded that observing other people in a, shall we say, 'lesser mental state' provides a welcome and addictive ego boost to the reader. The plethora of insane individuals within the four walls of Illogia makes it easy to spot the ramblings of a madman from hitting the Randumb page link. When reading such articles, endorphins are released and the individual reverts to an elevated mental state, rendering them unable to leave the site for hours.

Social/political experimentation[edit]

Illogicopedia's House of Commons by day, populated only by rats and the odd fnurdle.

Illogicopedia, being a "community" (in the words of W*kia), has a devoted following ranging from you to me. Illogicopedia's House of Commons provides opportunities for users to blurt out random words and see how everyone reacts. A bloke with a clipboard stands back and notes the results, which are usually scant as there are usually only two or three people present, having a picnic or something.

Television/news reports[edit]

Journalists and news reporters frequently visit Illogicopedia, in particular IllogiNews to keep in touch with the latest news from the land of the mentally unstable. On 21st November 2008, CNN reported on the outbreak of fnurdles across Outer Bangolia as a result of finding an IllogiNews article on a news syndication website. Public reaction was... limited.
