Had so much fun coming up with my list of Edward Thorpe’s Favorite Movies that I thought I’d make a list of lists.
A list of lists, is probably somewhat redundant, but I like the way it sounds.
So here we go:
A List About Nothing:
Let’s start our list of lists with a list about well, nothing in particular.
But, it is a list.
And, some of the list items are interesting.
- If Earth was the size of a grain of sand, the sun would be the size of an orange.
- There’re only about 100 people left who are fluent in Latin. (Speaking, mot reading)
- A cornflake shaped like Illinois, sold for $1,350.
- All Scandinavian countries have a cross on their national flags.

50 Questions With No Right Answer:
I’ve always enjoyed riddles and brain teasters.
The following list of questions kinda falls into those categories.
“How old would you be if you didn’t know how old you are?”
“If you knew that everyone you know was going to die tomorrow, who would you visit today?”
“When it’s all said and done, will you have said more than you’ve done?”

Bill Gates Music List:
I thought this list of deep-pocketed Bill Gates favorite music was interesting.
Mr. Gates was asked to pick the 8 records he’d take with him if he was going to be stuck on a desert island.
He was also asked to pick one book and one luxury item.
I’m not going to spoil your fun by revealing his picks.
But, his musical tastes run from the Beatles to Willie Nelson.

Sarah Thomson’s Story:
“In early 2012, 32-year-old Sarah Thomson got a blood clot on her brain and it ultimately led to her being in a coma for 10 days. When she awoke, she thought it was the year 1998. She thought that her favorite band, the Spice Girls, were still together…”
Sarah thought she was a teenager. She threw tantrums, listened to loud rock music and dyed her hair wild colors.

The World’s 100 Most Powerful Women:
Despite the fact that the aurthor didn’t include Mrs. Thorpe, this was an interesting list.
I was slightly surprised that Oprah Winfrey only ranked # 12. What’s up with that?
And, Queen Elizabeth II, was way down at # 41!

15 Types of Torture:
If your idea of torture is Woody Allen movies, wait’ll you hear about these brutal punishments.
For example: The Gridiron:
The gridiron was basically a grill. For roasting people. As one might expect, it looked like an iron grid, and was placed over a fire or burning coals.
Some people were even basted in oil first, to ensure proper broiling. But take heart, they weren’t eaten afterward. Probably…
Hannah And Her Sisters doesn’t sound so bad now, does it?

100 Jokes That Shaped Modern Comedy:
As rependance for the above list, let’s get funny…
Because we all have different triggers for our funny button, this list is more opinionated than factual.
Still worthwhile reading.
Here’s a couple of examples:
Dick Gregory on Segregated Restaurants:
I walked into a restaurant, which was the wrong restaurant, in Mississippi…I sit down,
the blonde waitress walked over to me and I said, “I’d like two cheeseburgers.”
She said, “We don’t serve colored people here,”
…and I said, “I don’t eat colored people nowhere!“
Bob Newhart: The Driving Instructor:
Instructor to student: “Turn right here”
“Well, now that was my fault again.
You see I meant the next street. Not this man’s lawn.”
Elayne Boosler: Male Sexual Hypocrisy:
Men want you to scream “You’re The Best!”
While swearing you’ve never done this with anyone before…
