. . . to break a copier. Remember folks: Do not drink and photocopy body parts at the office party. You might have to submit to small arms inspection.

I'm not sure you should trust this list too much, especially #6. I went to high school with the Jehle brothers, whose father used to play chamber music with Einstein in Princeton. Dietrich and Eberhardt never claimed he was concert level, but he played well enough that he—and his fellow musicians—enjoyed it.

These don't sound fantastic, but it's not like washing test-tubes is all that hunky-dory.

One of my favorites was left out. From Anthony Burgess' Earthly Powers: "It was the afternoon of my eighty-first birthday, and I was in bed with my catamite when Ali announced that the archbishop had come to see me."

Frankly, I think this site has more Ronald Reagan than it needs, but it does have Richard Nixon's farewell address (man, I never get tired of that one) and a ton of other winners—in both text and MP3. Obviously slanted towards stuff they have audio files for, but a goldmine for those of us who appreciate good oratory.

This is Mark Bittman's third collection of 101 no-hassle dishes. These aren't gimmicks—they're good food designed to be made in under 20 minutes (frequently much under), using foods you might have around the house. (Over the years, I've discovered that a little prep at the shopping stage guarantees that you'll have the ingredients to make good food fast.)

Just a reminder that there are only 11 days left until Talk Like a Pirate Day.

Some questionable calls here. "Daydream Believer?" Did Boyce and Hart ever write a wussy song? Also some good advice: "Waltz time is a direct, foolproof route to wussiness."

Business Week lauds 12 modern products that so perfectly encapsulated new manufacturing techniques or materials that they remain classics years later. It's a strange list.

Does the Western 12-tone scale represent every tone possibility? Oh, grasshopper, you have so much to learn.

I love lists like this. What are your candidates?
