Seems like every time you turn around, there's a top list for something. Billboard has for years put out weekly lists of the top songs in the world. Magazines put out lists of the most influential or beautiful people of the year. Sports writers vote on top athletic teams in the nation. Even David Letterman has a top ten list on his nightly show for the most mundane reasons.
So it only seems appropriate that I put together some sort of list to celebrate the end of the first decade of the new millennium. I've tried to think of things that I find fascinating and rank them. I'm sure you'll disagree with many of my choices, but every list is subjective.
