“Thanks for the advice about getting stuck on producing the ”ultimate” list. I could either create 30 different lists of ten or spend way too much time trying to make a perfect one–which takes some of the fun out of it. This is a great idea for a site The only difficulty was to not just create a list made up entirely of other people’s top ten.”
