Top 10 Things to Know About Lee Standberry
10. My favorite Top Tenz list from another author is 'Top 10 Villains who should have gone legit'.
9. My favorite Top Tenz list that I wrote - kind of hard to choose, but I think I side with 'Top 10 Comic Super Heroes of Color', that was retitled 'Top 10 non-white comic super heroes.'
8. I'm the best EA Sports NBA Live player you've never met or heard of. If Live was as popular as Madden football, I would have been on TV and won tons of prize money by now. Unfortunately, I'm left to take my buddies beer money. But hey, it's a hustle.
7. I'm an avid comic book collector and reader, and an advocate of the medium. Screw the movie adaptions and read the original material. Nuff Said!
6. I firmly believe in the utility of polygamy, but my wife - for reasons that continue to elude me- is not open to the idea. At an impasse, I'm left to wallow in thoughts of what could have been...
5. There was a time when jumping out of helicopters and running around in the woods in camouflage fatigues was what I did for a living. Semper Fi!
4. I've never met anyone even remotely famous. In fact, I've never even been in close proximity to anyone famous. I can't even manage to get a concert seat close to the stage.
3. Besides being able to string words together into somewhat comprehensible sentences, I like to talk (probably a little too much), so I spend a considerable amount of my time teaching and lecturing to people who are interested in what I have to say.
2. I'm a social conservative (not the political variety) who happens to believe in social issues like government has a fundamental responsibility and obligation to assist its citizens in times of need.
1. I love dogs and until recent years, have always had one in my life. My wife, however, doesn’t care for canines and happens to prefer cats (again, for inexplicable reasons). At another impasse, we have a turtle. Yeah, because EVERYONE loves reptiles.

Powerful men have always captured the attention of the public, though power is not solely constricted to men. Women, despite many of the gender barriers that continue to exist, have risen to claim their place in the sun as well. These ten women have the ability to get people to do what they want, and [...]
In the wake of the 2012 Presidential Election, the people of America made a definitive leadership choice for the next 4 years. Not everyone however, was in agreement with this decision. In fact, many of the disheartened voices have declared impending doom as the nation, they assert, descends into the pit of socialism. So, with [...]
Recently, a fellow comic connoisseur and I were engaged in a friendly-ish debate, about which of our favorite team of heroes would win in a fight against one another. It’s a relevant discussion, with Marvel’s current series Avengers vs. X-Men making waves, though this wasn’t what sparked our dialog. No, this was simply me trying [...]
In all honesty, the sport of skydiving is relatively safe. According to most sources, skydiving fatalities (on average) amount to about 30 out of every 100,000 jumps. An individual is more likely to die in a car accident than face death as the result of skydiving. Or for a more comparative analogy: scuba diving averages [...]
Cemeteries are interesting. On the one hand, these grounds are the final resting place for the dead. Yet, while death may be the primary purpose of these areas, it is the living who find value and significance in them. Cemeteries have an allure for many, far more than I would have thought prior to doing [...]
With the War On Terror entering its second decade, the military forces of the United States continues to operate at a high tempo. A salient factor of U.S. military forces has always been the high level of training that its members receive. It is this training that is the focus of this list. Military personnel [...]
This list can be thought of as an addendum of sorts to a similar list that was done here at TopTenz, featuring American military schools. There was a bit of thought, both from myself, and from the readers of the original list, that there is something to be said about military institutions of higher learning [...]
The majority of us have insurance of one kind or another – auto insurance, life insurance, home insurance, etc. For the most part, having insurance gives us a bit of financial security in the event of something tragic occurring, like a car wreck, or a tornado destroying the roof of your house. However, some of [...]
When talking about food of the future, soylent green (the foodstuffs made out of people from the classic Sci-Fi movie of the same name) and grasshoppers leap to mind. Well, I don’t think most of today’s (or tomorrow’s) consumers are too interested in snacking on the remains of their neighbors. Nevertheless, the idea of what [...]
This list is the companion piece to the Top 10 Best Summer Olympic Moments article, and the third in a series of four Olympic-themed pieces here at TopTenz. Previously, we looked as some of the best moments that exemplified the Olympic spirit. By and large, the Olympics are exactly what they are supposed to be: a [...]
