Lists are fun to read when you’ve been reading your smart magazines all day. Here are three lists-like pieces I read recently that were entertaining:
Five Gadgets That Will Make You a Superhero on Wired.com. ‘Nuff said.
The Hater’s Guide to Summer Fun on The Onion’s AV Club. The Hater is generally good for lists. I like the dress but does it come in black?
Inconvenient Truths: Get Ready to Rethink What It Means to be Green on Wired.com. An OK list, but seriously has some holes. Like take number 2: “A/C is OK”. Yeah, if you’re living in the 1800’s and talking about heating your home with OIL or COAL. Very non-progressive. It’s called HYDRO, dufus. Come to Quebec. Check it out. Number 9 (Used Cars – Not Hybrids) was interesting, too, since Murray told me the story of Paul McCartney ordering a hydrogen car and then finding out it took like a billion gallons of oil to fly it over for him (McCartney was pissed). And number 10 gets a nod: just because it’s my mantra: Expect the Worst.
