  •  you can write your own most important list (0+ / 0-)

    that maybe what Time is doing.  however, i doubt that considering their other entries in the top 10.

    •  So what nefarious thing IS Time doing? (0+ / 0-)

      OOOOOOhhhhh! Conspiracy theories, I love those!

      Guess what? No top ten list of ANYTHING EVER PUBLISHED is factual. All top ten lists are opinion, don't you understand that? Claiming that there is some objective, external measure for "top" anything without defining "top" is ridiculous. Your attempts to bring "facts" into a discussion that is by its very nature pure opinion simply makes you look arrogant, self centered and egotistical. It makes you look like the sort of person who can not honestly differentiate his own opinions from fact.

      •  top 10 biggest defaults (0+ / 0-)

        top 10 countries around the world by wealth
        healthcare
        income inequality

        numbers are everywhere if you're willing to use them.  plenty of data to definitively say one way or another what the top story of 2011 was.  it's not easy but can be done.

        and is.

        •  If you define top, then it is valid. (0+ / 0-)

          As I mentioned. It is only when you don't qualify "top" with things like "biggest defaults" or some other measurable, quantifiable function that "top" becomes pure opinion.

          You did no research. I know this because you refuse to provide it. "Do yer own research!" is the cry of those without fact to back up their opinion, and everyone knows it. You may as well write "I am completely without facts" because everyone knows that is what you mjan.
