TIME magazine came out with the top ten lists for 2007. I've always been a sucker for such lists. It seems like a good way to go over the year, thinking 'Oh, yeah, that was cool stuff' and occasionally, 'How did I ever miss that?'
This year's lists ranged from top ten breakups ( Britney and her mom) to top ten buzzwords (cougar, anyone?), including quite a few things I had no clue about (videogames? ) and web videos ( more Britney). Some of the top ten books were familiar ( including A Thousand Splendid Suns), and none of the TV shows were. At the end, I was left feeling that my General Knowledge Quotient had just dropped twenty points.
We live in interesting times.
