Okay, it's a term which actually means "owned", but someone's fat finger hit the 'p' instead of 'o' key, on the keyboard, and it became a word, if you can believe that internet legend-lore stuff. Anyway, the US Congress is so totally-corrupted by the criminal filth within it, with some notable exceptions; the DBM (Drive-By Media) are so invested in helping the hate-Ameica, hate-US Military, socialists and liberal-demokkkRATs (who need summary execution, IMO) subvert/defeat/destroy America, in everything and anything related to Liberty and Freedom, by any lying means they can. America's leftist, treasonous, seditious, Red Diaper Doper Baby® saboteur universities — Columbia, Harvard, MIT, Princeton etc — and other shitholes of "lower living", IMO, are actively-inviting the murderous, subhuman-filth enemies of America, to "speak" at their corrupted, commie-laden, socialist-fomenting campuses. The Enemy Within® is pervasive and relentless in their undermining of America. The long-embedded socialists, commies, pedophiles, homo-sodomite-faggots in the NEA and US Dept of Education, need to be identified, rooted-out, duly-charged, arrested, tried, convicted, sentenced and executed/hung, as traitors, seditionists and saboteurs, IMO. Cleaning-out, aka "killing the head of the snake", would go a long way toward cleaning-up America's cesspool of thousands of institutions of "lower learning" - all public schools, colleges and universities. Make me "King For A Day", and I'll get it done, in 15-20 minutes. Count on it.

Around The Garden Center™.
Summer 'subtly returned' (as a thrown brick), last mid-week with low-80s and high humidity. After 5-6 days of daytime 60s and nighttime 40s, the 80s sucked. I'm sick of the drought and heat/humidity, and really-welcomed the Fall temps, though I've had the heat on in my condo in the mornings at 6am, while feeding the cats and making coffee. Giant combines are taking-down tens-of-thousands of acres of browned-off feed corn, and the same acreage of yellowed soybeans, for sale overseas. The long-range forecast calls for 5-7°F temps, above normal, for the next 2-3mos, and appreciably-lower-than-normal rainfall, over the same period. True, peaches, apples, pears, grapes and most other stonefruit are smaller, but hugely-sweeter, due to the drought. Ahhhhhh, "The Drought of '07". Like the droughts of '02 — '06, too?
My condo's Net connection's email went south on Thursday morning, as ComCast/AT&T's fiber-toptic backbone went south. My numerous browsers — Netscape v9.03b, IEv7.0, Opera v9.2, Firefox v2.0 — worked just fine-and-dandy, and my ISP then verified the nationwide problem: ComCast/AT&T's billion-dollar, fiber-optic backbone went "missing". Repairs were underway, re-routing of Net traffic was being done, and within an hour, all was 'back to normal', by the time I'd gotten into work. By the time I got home, around 5:30pm, Comcast was back up and running. Such is life in the IT world, I guess.
The "Drought From Hell" continues and is getting worse, and despite my once-a-year 25% Off Fall Sale is closing-in on the end of September, I'll most likely extend it into October, with the hopes that the Fall rains soon get here and relieve the dustbowl we're living in. There is no significant rainfall in the 14-day forecast, and I'm concerned that the casualties will be many in the Spring, as stressed-out plants just won't survive the Winter months, without a modicum of moisture at their root levels. The 2007-2008 Farmer's Almanac predicts we have a "bad Winter coming", out here in the Mid-Atlantic Region. FYI.
On Saturday, a customer from nearby Crossroads (PA) came in, and said he's been invaded by 1" long, European Hornets, which I'd never heard of. But after some research, I found that they can do considerable damage to trees in August and September. I'll keep you updated on the "European Hornets" scenario, as I check the nursery fields for damage to the thousands of trees.
Sunday was The First Day of AutumnHappy Fall, BTW! — and yet we're still in the nasty throes of The Drought From Hell, IMO. The cooler, drier air came back briefly, with the passage of a cold-front on Friday and I'm enjoying not having to run my AC at work or at home, for a couple of days. But we need ***RAIN*** in the worst way, as all moisture has been long 'cooked-out of the soils', and everything is suffering, terribly. Despite the JSGC&N-mandated Drip Irrigation Systems for every LSCP installation, plants are suffering under heat stress, as ground and air temps are unduly-high and destructive, and they're either going dormant or many are dying. Sad commentary, to be sure. It's much worse this year, than in any previous year which I can remember or document.
I closed down the GC&N's 5'x12' tomato garden, on Tuesday, pulled all the declining vines and undeveloped, green fruits for the compost pile, turned-over the soil and enjoyed the season's last hybrid 4-5" 'Beefsteak' tomato of the season, with mayo, salt & pepper, on rye. Mmmmm, good.
I've talked to a few of my GC&N's neighbors this week, about how their water supplies are holding-up, during the ongoing Drought From Hell, and the unanimous replay was: not good. Their properties' creeks/streams and springs have dried-up — first time in their memory of the past 25yrs — and their well(s) are running-down frequently, and are taking much longer to "re-charge" before re-use. Although I have 8 wells — with 6 in constant usage and 2 in reserve — I've had to cut my drip irrigation zone (12 zones on 20ac) times by 35%, to avoid running-down the system, and waiting 20-30mins for the re-charge to happen. Local spring-fed ponds are down 2-3ft, and Lake Redman, York County's main water reservoir, is down 12-15ft. It's grim, folks.
Several months ago, I commissioned a "Real Estate Appraisal" to be done, by a local Commercial-Industrial Appraiser (York, PA) for the GC&N's 20-acres; 13.6ac of which I'd bought at $5,000/acre in 1990, and another adjoining 6.4ac which I'd purchased, under contract for the same $5,000/ac, in 1996. Total original investment: $100,000 for ag-zoned property. The value today: $780,000. Not bad, IMO, for 17yrs. I'm also expecting a "Business Valuation", by a local CPA firm (Hanover, PA), which will give me the total overall value of the business, including the real estate, which I've never had done, and which I have no idea of the bottom-line, net worth of my 17yr effort. My guess: $10,000,000. Eh, who knows? I will today, at 2pm. More on that report, next week.

Things Which Make Your Head Explode™.
Mentally-ill, GOP/Republican "presidential candidate" John McCain (NUTCASE-AZ), who has long identified himself as an Episcopalian, said this weekend that he is a Baptist and has been for years. Campaigning in this conservative, predominantly Baptist state, McCain called himself a Baptist when speaking to reporters Sunday and noted that he and his family have been members of the North Phoenix Baptist Church in his home state of Arizona, for more than 15 years. Lock the scumbag-up in an asylum, IMO.
Yeah, I'd headshoot this murderous subhuman, commie spic filth, Cuban dictator, in a f*cking heartbeat. Likewise, I'd headshoot the piece of camel-shit, Iranian, muslim-islamist-arab nutjob dictator, too, in a f*cking heartbeat. Any questions, anyone?
America is admitting nearly 10,000 people from countries designated as sponsors of terrorism, and who've have entered the United States under an immigration diversity program, with relatively few restrictions. BULL-FUCKING-SHIT, MR BUSH! What are you thinking, Bush? Are you certifiably *nuts* to subject Americans to those murderous subhuman filth?
Finally, someone in the MSM/DBM admits that shit-for-brains Dan Rather, disgraced, fired, lowlife-lying dirtbag, liberal-demokkkRAT-turd-polishing 'CBS anchor' of 24yrs, is gravely, mentally-ill. And so is the washed-up, never-was, has-been, turd-polishing asshole, Teddy "I hate Jews!" Koppel, a secular, hate-America, hate-US Military, lowlife, scum-sucking, piece-of-shit, Jew. Get a heart attack/stroke, Teddy-boy, and DIE! BTW, bravo, Charles Lane, for telling the truth! You get my award for TRUTH, sir.
I've said it many time, for the past 10-11yrs: unions are obsolete, corrupt shitholes, run by criminal thugs (mafia liberal-demokkkATs etc), who need to be investigated/indicted/convicted/executed-imprisoned under The RICO Act. FACT: 98% of all unions are criminal/corrupt entities, totally and completely-beholden to corrupt and criminal liberal-demokkkRAT politicians, who also need conviction and execution, under the RICO Act, IMO. 73,000 liberal-demokkkRAT, robotic union assholes from GM struck the USA, and very probably Canada and Mexico, within mere days. Guarrantees of job security, GM workers? Don't f*cking bet on it, assholes! The corrupt, criminal US politicians, bought-and-paid-for by the unions,
Did you ever see the 9-11 video, "The Falling Man"? It's a compilation of pics and films of the 'WTC Jumpers' on 9-11, and should be watched by every American, every day, IMO. Got Kleenex?
Over two weeks after the corrupt, criminal US Congress criticized/defamed/lied about the Honorable US Gen David Petraeus, the lowlife dirtbags in the US Congress overwhelmingly approved a resolution condemning “in the strongest possible terms” the treasonous-seditious-saboteur MoveOn.org’s personal attacks on General David Petraeus, as well as honoring “all members of the Armed Forces,” and their families, for “serving in harm’s way.” Seventy-nine Democrats voted against it. IMO, 93% of the US House of Reps and 85% of the US Senate are traitors-seditionists-saboteurs, and richly-deserve summary trial and hanging.

Hang The Jena 6, IMO.
It's amazing to me, that the assholes/idiots/morons/cretins in the DBM/MSM/Talk Radio, including Mike Savage, can be such subuman garbage, as to believe that 6 niggers against 1 knocked-unconscious White Boy, is fair play. It was attempted murder, plain and simple. And the 6 racist, bigoted porch-monkey sambos, were charged that way, IIRC, by the legally-correct-DA.
But yet, when 4 subhuman nigger filth tortured, mutilated, raped and murdered 2 Whites, Channon Christian and Christopher Newsom, in Knoxville, TN, it was hushed-up natiowide, by the cowardly, PC-shit, MSM/DBM trash/filth/scum/white trash assholes.
And when simpleton, murderous idiot niggers attack a White Boy, and the Legal System charges, indicts, and jails them, the race-baiting, racist, scum-sucking garbage, like Jesse Jack-scum (RACIST-IL) and Al Sharp-scum (RACIST-NY), and attack the DA. IMO, round-up and kill the Jack-scums, Sharp-scums and all the nigger filth — whorebag-nigger-shitscum, Maxine Waters, (TRAITOR-CA), skank-filth-slut-garbage Sheila Jackson Lee, (TRAITOR-TX), and asshole-racist-criminal-bigot, William Jefferson (CRIMINAL-LA) — associated with those subhuman race-baiting, bigoted, dirtbag sambo, porch-monkeys. IMO.
Watch this tape of seven (7) Norfolk (VA) niggers beating-up a single (1) White Boy, for no reason except that he is White, and try to tell me that it isn't a "hate crime"? Go ahead: try to tell me that bullshit, liberal assholes! TRY TO TELL ME THAT SHIT! Did you read that story, anywhere? No f*cking way, did you ever read it anywhere in the corrupt MSM/DBM, dammit! Reason #1 why I carry concealed, BTW!
Hey, racist MSM/DBM pig-fuckers: let's don't forget the "Witchita Murders" — subhuman nigger filth, Reginald and Jonathan Carr, convicted of robbing and murdering four White People almost two years ago. The Carr nigger garbage are also linked to a fifth murder — and truly deserve killing, IMO. KILL THOSE SUBHUMANS!
No relation between the nooses hung by white students outside a Louisiana high school, and the alleged beating of a white student by black teens? So says Donald Washington, US attorney for the Western District of Louisiana. The events occurred three months apart last year in Jena, Louisiana. The White boy who was beaten unconscious wasn't even among the students 'suspended' for the nooses incident. "A lot of things happened between the noose hanging and the fight occurring, and we have arrived at the conclusion that the fight itself had no connection," he said. Agreed.
Reknowned racist, dirtbag, CNN bigot, Roland "Sambo" Martin, had 'tears streaming down his ugly, shit-for-brains, racist, bigoted porch monkey face', when he read the 'Jena 6 crap'? Grow-up, nigger boy! The OJ-nigger's about to "get his real due", though he should already be dead, executed for murdering his wife and Goldman, IMO.
If I had an M-64 "Vulcan Mini-Gun", firing at the rate of 6,000 RPMs, I'd "clean the streets" of Jena (LA), of those lowlife, subhuman, dirtbag, murderer-supporting, sambo porch-monkey filth agitators, bussed-in, "rent-a-demonstraters". IMO, they all need killig.
Asshole Talk Radio morons, like dirtbag Mikey "Shit-For-Brains" Savage, are on the side of the racist, nigger, subhuman garbage "Jena 6", who use the donations from around the USA, as "bling". Dumbasses, lowlifes, shitheads, scumbags, assholes! Wake-up, Savage/ Weiner, you lowlife! What's wrong with White people, giving money to NIGGERS, who don't have the brains to use it correctly? Like Katrina, when million of dollars poured-into thiose subhuman NOLA-niggers, and they used it for booze, dope, whores, TVs etc.
I carry (concealed PA-CCW Permit, since 1989) a Kimber 1911 "Eclipse Target II" .45cal ACP, with 2+ extra 8-round mags, loaded with 165gr HPs and 230gr FMJs, and would open fire on a crowd of niggers/white trash/punks/criminals etc potential murderers and subhuman filth, if they were out to hurt/kill me, my Family or friends. Count on each of them being dead, when I'm finished. It's called "self-protection" and is Constitutionally-protected by The Second Amendment. Any questions?
Now, the sambo scumbag's trial has been moved to juvenile court, Louisiana's corrupt, inept, incompetent, lowlife, fat, bloated dirtbag skank bitch, do-nothing, sterile, whorebag governor, Kathy "Crybaby" Blanco (CRIMINAL-LA), announced Wednesday. The court ruled that Mychal Bell, a black teenager accused of beating a white classmate, who was 16 at the time of the beating, should have been tried in juvenile court instead of having the case transferred to adult court. Blanco made the announcement with criminal dirtbag lowlife "civil rights leaders", dirtbag Martin Luther King III, and criminal, racist, fat, bloated bigot nigger®, Al Sharpton, who should have been tried and executed, years ago, for his many crimes against society. Where's James Earl Ray when America really needs him? Shap-scum is subhuman filth, IMO.

Lowlife, Subhuman Garbage Filth™.
Is that "middle finger of Kerry", his IQ or sperm count? Probably both, IMO. The treasonous, lowlife, lying dirtbag, disgraced, US Sen John Kerry (TRAITOR-MA) needs due charging, arrest, trial, sentencing and execution/hanging, IMO, as do Murtha and Kennedy. 87% of the US Congress are traitors, seditionists and saboteurs.
Pennsylvania's disgraced, corrupt, criminal, lying, fat, bloated governor, "Fat Eddie" Rendell (CRIMINAL-PA) is in fraudulent election compaign donation with the Hsu gook-slope-dink-garbage-dogshit, up to his fat belly, IMO. Rendell needs trial and execution, IMO. Rendell's criminal, corrupt filth, but said he does not see the need to hire a private investigator to probe one of his friends who failed to properly-register, before lobbying on behalf of a film company. Where's Lee Harvey Oswald or James Earl Ray, when America really needs them?
Yes, US Sen Hitlery Rotten Klintoon (CRIMINAL-NY) is a bull-dyke-lesbo, piece-of-shit filth, IMO. No male in his right mind would ever mount that fat, bloated, mentally-ill, socialist, commie filth, shit bag bitch, IMO. Execept Bubba Jeffy Klintoon, who'd f*ck a piece of rotting roadkill, if it was still semi-warm and bloody. Yuk. Bubba.
No, we're NOT Xenophobic, dammit; the criminal, illegal alien spics have broken the US Laws, and need to be deported from the USA. They're criminal, lowlife, dirtbag filth, IMO, and the cowardly US Congress is complicit in their criminality, IMO, and 87% of them richly-deserve to be impeached, tried and executed/hung, as traitors, seditionists and saboteurs, IMO. This lowlife, dirtbag, subhuman spic shitfilth, Evaristo Lenin Perez of Ciudad Acuna, a commie-socialist-leftist, piece-of-shit-crap-garbage, needs killing "permanent elimination", from the face of the earth, IMO.
An 8-year-old boy whose mother was deported to Mexico, led a chanting crowd of about 150 pro-immigration activists through the halls of Congress on Wednesday. Capitol Police arrested two demonstrators for disorderly conduct. Saul Arellano and other children carried a banner that read: "Born in the USA. Don't take our moms and dads away." The boy's mother, Elvira Arellano, was deported last month after taking refuge in a Chicago church for a year. IMO, shoot and kill them both. Problem solved.
Disgraced, run-out-of-office, subhuman, homo-sodomite-faggot filth, ex-NJ-gov, Jim McGreevey (FAGGOT-NJ), yesterday accused his soon-to-be-ex wife of "greedily" grabbing at the perks of being New Jersey's First Lady — and refusing to give them back. In legal papers packed with snide and catty comments, the openly gay faggot McGreevey told estranged wife Dina Matos McGreevey, she can expect to get nothing from him.
Fat, bloated, alcoholic, drug-addicted, intern-murderer, disgraced lowlife dirtbag, US Sen Teddie "The Swimmer" Kennedy (DRUNK-MA) has held preliminary discussions with publishers about writing a book on his career as a drunk, murderer, liar and scumbag, an adviser to the mentally-ill senator, told the commie-socialist AP shithead garbage assholes, on Saturday.
If it's not the vermin at the corrupt Ford Motor Co, illegally-giving hundreds-of-thousands of their trusting stockholders' dollars to subhuman, lowlife homo-sodomite-faggots's perverted activities, it's the vermin at the Miller Brewing Co, illegally-donating hundreds-of-thousands of their stockholders' dollars to The Folsom Street Fair, a gay filthy,subhuman, homo-sodomite-faggot 'parade', which has for years included full nudity and sex acts on public streets, and is set to take place again this year on September 30th, with the 'San-Fran-Sicko' city approval. I will never buy another FoMoCo product, either personally or for my GC&N, nor will I ever travel to SF and spend a dime there. It's a shithole, I truly wish my Sister Becky, would move back east to Penna, despite her uber-high-paying medical job, and I also truly wish the murderous muslim-islamist-arab terrorists would nuke the filthy shithole, and permanently erase it from the face of the Earth! It's the Sodom & Gomorrah, of America, IMO.

Global Warming Bullshit™.
Have you seen the BBC's "BBC: The Great Global Warming Swindle"? It was banned from Google.com's and YouTube.com's websites, by the mentally-ill dirtbag, subhuman, left-wing, global warming idiot wackos, but I've preserved it, for posterity, aka you, me and *ours*. Watch, be amazed and download it for others to see. It's on my corporate server, and will stay there, BTW.
Global warming is an entirely natural phenomenon and its effects can even be beneficial, according to two leading researchers.
This video easily refutes the obvious lies and pathetic bullshit in the extremist AlGoreBore's laughable, bullshit PowerPoint show, "An Inconvenient Truth". It's called "An Inconvenient Truth... or Convenient Fiction?", and you should watch it, very closely, after the BBC's "The Great Global Warming Swindle", just above.

The Religion Cult Political System of Perpetual Outrage™.
Have you seen "Obsession: Radical Islam"? Actually, it's all about the murderous system of islam, whose so-called "five pillars are actually, *Hate*, *Murder*, *Child Buggery*, Female Chattelling*, *Destuction*. Any questions? islam is shit/trash/junk/crap/garbage/filth. Any other questions?
The subhuman, murderous, meglomaniac, psychopath, subhuman piece-of-pigshit, mentally-ill, muslim-islamist-arab dictator of Iran, 'president' Mahmoud Ahmadinejad ("I'm A Dinner Jacket"), was allowed to speak at the leftist, hate-America, hate-US Military, hate-Freedom, hate-Liberty, wacko liberal-demokkkRAT shithole, Columbia University (NYC), on Monday. Columbia University president Lee Bollinger, who needs a real-man's haircut, was/is an idiot/asshole/moron/scumbag, for even allowing that subhuman, piece-of-muslim-islamist-shit to speak, but he at least tried to compensate for his obvious/abject stupidity, by trying to attack the homo-sodomite-faggot Mahmoud Ahmadinejad (Post #2), muslim-islamist-arab filth. IMO, he should have either been killed by a well-placed sniper's .50cal BMG, or immediately-arrested on the stage, summarily-tried and executed within 24hrs. IMO, Ahmadinejad ("I'm A Dinner Jacket") is the Anti-Christ and is here to start the "End Times". He is evil, a mass murderer, a psychopath and truly needs killing. If I had had "the shot", I would have killed him on the spot, legalities be f*cked! Columbia University should have all federal funding withdrawn, and be allowed to financially-collapse. Ahmadinejad ("I'm A Dinner Jacket") should never be allowed to even set foot on US Soil, regardless of his wanting to attend the commie shithole, UN (Useless Nations).
Subhuman, lowlife, dirtbag, murderous muslim-islamist-arab filth TSA garbage frisking a Catholic (No, I'm a Methodist) Nun, at an airport? Shoot the muslim-islamist PIG-FUCKING-BITCH, dump the pig-fucking muslim-islamist bitch filth into a pit full of pigshit, and pass the Nun through, untouched, dammit. IMO!

Some People Just Need Killing™.
A stupid, half-breed nigger®-White trash®-gook, from the MIT shithole, walks into an airport, with a 'fake bomb' on her flat chest, and is arrested for several felonies. She should have been immediately head-shot, with a double-tap .45cal, and killed, IMO. The filthy, subhuman pig, Star Simpson, 19, should have died on the spot, and the security guards were grossly-negligent in their duties to protect others, in that airline terminal, IMO. Fire the security guards, execute the half-breed, mentally-ill, pig-fucking bitch-filth, IMO.
A federal prosecutor from Florida — John D.R. Atchison, 53 — who authorities say flew to Michigan for a sexual encounter with a 5-year-old girl tried to hang himself in his jail cell Thursday but was stopped in time, used a sheet in an attempted hanging around 4 am. Dammit; let the subhuman, pedophile, homo-sodomite-faggot, piece-of-shit, KILL HIMSELF, and save the US Taxpayers'all those millions of dollars!
Subhuman spic filth dirtbag child rapist, Carlos Salustio, a Mexican immigrant criminal, who was living illegally in Warminster (PA), needs killing, IMO, pleaded guilty in April to rape of a child and related charges for as many as 25 sexual incidents with the girl over a two-year period, starting when the girl was 10. KILL THE SUBHUMAN SPIC!
Speaking of criminal, illegal alien spic filth, another drunk spic — Jose Balderas — murdered two motorists on a highway by crashing into two parked cars on Interstate 40/85 Sunday morning, in Guilford County, NC. Tens-of-thousands of Americans are killed and murdered each year, by criminal, illegal alien spic filth. KILL THE SPIC BASTARD, dammit! Got it, yet, America? When will you "get it" and cut-off all social/medical services to the murderous, illegal alien spic garbage, and deport them back to their turd-world hellholes? WHEN?
Like murderous commie filth, Cuban dictator Fidel Castro; murderous commie-socialist scum, Venezuelan dictator Hugo Chavez; murderous muslim-islamofascist garbage, psychopath Iranian dictator Mahmoud ("I'm A Dinner Jacket") Ahmadinejad; murderous commie-socialist Nicaraguan dictator Daniel Ortega, accused the US of imposing a worldwide dictatorship and defended the right of Iran and North Korea to pursue nuclear technology in a speech Tuesday, before the UN (Useless Nations) General Assembly meeting. All of them need killing, IMO.
Subhuman lowlife, dirtbag filth, sexual predator, Dennis Marth, 46, needs killing, IMO. A .45cal 165gr HP bullet, in his sick, perverted, deviant, degenerate head/body, will decrease 'recividism', by 100%, IMO. KILL HIM!
Suibhuman, murderous, lowlife nigger® filth, Van Roger Smith Jr, 16, Sherrod Nicholas Harrison, 19, and Michael Graham Currie, 18, all of Cameron (NC), have been charged with first-degree murder and breaking and entering in the death of Emily Elizabeth Haddock, 12, in her Moore County home, last week. Kill them all.
A paroled, subhuman, piece-of-lowlife-filth, dirtbag sex offender — Sal Inghilleri, 54 — linked to the notorious case of a girl who was hidden away in a dungeon more than a decade ago was arrested in North Carolina, after he filled out a credit application at a car dealership using his own name. IMO, if he'd been executed for the first heinous crime against an innocent, the subhuman White trash® filth wouldn't have committed any further crimes against society's innocents. Zero recividism. Kill him!
Thank you, Texas, for making my week! More than two decades after a mother of seven was killed in her Harris County home, the subhman convicted in her slaying — Michael Richard, 49 — was executed Tuesday; the 26th in Texas, this year. The lowlife piece-of-shit White trash®, had at least five felony convictions, and had been released from his second prison term just eight weeks before the 1986 murder of Marguerite Lucille Dixon. Rot in hell, scumbag!

The List Universe.
I can't get through a day without being confronted by a list, of some sort. The go-to shorthand of pop culture, lists make it easy for writers to dispense with pesky paragraphs. Designed to spark debate, they entice readers with the sizzling promise of a "Top 10!" or a "Top 20!" If you're still thrilled by the language of lists (and I am), this site is a pure delight. Smart cookie Jamie Frater has taken it upon himself to come up with a colossal compendium of ordered items. Thankfully, his unique lists don't cover the same well-trod ground walked on by many rank-happy types before him. Mr Frater offers a diverse mix of lists that blend whimsy with the out-and-out weird. I was drawn-in by the mesmerizing "Top 10 Incredible Recordings", laughed at the "Top 15 Quotes of Prince Philip", and got grossed-out by the "Top 10 Disgusting Foods". As long as you avoid the food list, this prodigious site is perfect for a list-based lunch break. Perhaps a list of "Top 10 Ways to Waste Company Time" is in order? No way, as I own a company and carefully check my employees' work habits, BTW. Ha!
