So you can cite totally unrelated sources.

That's funny but.... That's an invalid reference. It implies shakespeare said you can't turn papers without references. It also implies you could form a complete sentence with a reference for each word and say: I(1) have (2) the biggest (4) dick (8)

as long as someone else wrote it down first, then it's ok for you to write things down

You can omit to cite a source to a piece of information which is widely known and confirmed multiple times. In most other cases if you don't cite you're either plagiarising (which in some legal systems is regarded as a penal infraction while in others a civil infraction) or you're just spitballing which is a no-no for a research / paper.

It's a lesson we all learn in school, but most people forgot about it once they read 'news' articles in Facebook.

Need to paraphrase as well. Just citing reference and using it verbatim is still Plagiarism!
