Just in case that awesome GIF was too difficult to understand, Wikipedia is NOT a 'source'
Britannica has issues too but at least they take responsibility for the content they publish, and you can (sorta*) cite Britannica in a university essay. Neither are true about Wikipedia.
*I say sorta because my professors considered encyclopedias to be poor sources in general when compared to hard research by historians, political scientists, academic research papers published in journals, etc.
