Top 10 Reasons I Hate Top 10 Lists

| Saturday, January 3rd, 2009 | 2 Comments »

Top Ten Lists are horrible ways to communicate and here’s how I really feel about them.

10.  They’re a cheap attempt at attracting quick attention.  Most people like to number, align and categorize everything, so a Top Whatever list always fits the eye nicely…but they’re usually worthless drivel.  Kind of like this top 10 list.

9.  The avearge human brain can’t stay focused on a piece of information for more than several seconds.  Ten items in a list are more than most people can handle.  They’ve already forgotten what you said in item number 10 by the time they’re on #8.

8.  Top 10 lists are old and tired.  They’ve been done to death and should die a slow, painful one!

7.  Just because you think that “Dumb & Dumber” is the number one movie of all time doesn’t mean I should.  Your opinionated top 10 list doesn’t do crap for me, and I’d generally rather not read it unless it has something of value to offer.

6.  I just can’t go any farther with this top 10 list.  I’m already sick to my stomach with just 6 items.  This will be the last “Top” list you will see on Mass Kask…That much I promise.
