# Is it always possible to arrive at a desired item on Wikipedia starting from a random item?

On Wikipedia, I tried a number of times to find the item I needed, starting from a random page and clicking on various (non-random) hyperlinks. Every time I succeeded in finding my desired item. Is this always possible?

• It is possible if and only if the graph has exactly one strongly connected component. Whether or not that is the case with Wikipedia I have no idea. – quicksort Jan 21 '17 at 11:55
• Wikipedia sometimes has dead-end pages that contain no hyperlinks. If you get there, you are stuck. – Ran G. Jan 21 '17 at 17:33
