Justin Bieber is a common target of mockery on the Internet, but in all seriousness, we kind of respect the guy. Sure, his music sucks but, since we’ve finished puberty, we’re not his target market. What’s important is that he’s handling his fame as well as any teenager could reasonably be expected to (the occasional [...]
Let’s get one thing clear before we begin: at the risk of sounding controversial, TopTenz does not endorse drug abuse. It will ruin your life, and you should be doing more productive things with your time anyway, like reading TopTenz lists. That being said, animals that do drugs are hilarious. Some animals do them for [...]
Hi! I’m TopTenz’s token Canadian, and I’m here to explain why you apple pie eating, baseball playing, llama-molesting Americans should be more like your northern neighbors (llama molesting is a stereotype about Americans, right?) Whatever, the point is that Canada is awesome, and you could be too. So throw on your hockey jersey, pour yourself [...]

If anybody gives you one of these as a present, Santa and Jesus agree that it’s alright for you to temporarily forego the Christmas spirit, and give them the gift of a backhanded slap. [...]
Halloween is one of the greatest days of the year. When you’re a kid, there’s nothing better than being encouraged to go out and stuff your face with as much candy as you can get your hands on. Halloween is fun for adults too, as handing out candy is a nostalgic reminder of our youth. [...]
Kickstarter is a website where people beg for money to help them complete a project. Many of these people are crazy and, while most of their mad dreams die well-deserved deaths, every once and awhile a baffling project somehow manages to succeed. Projects like… 10. World’s Largest Jockstrap Artist Michael Barrett had a dream: to set [...]
Great art takes time. Da Vinci worked on the Mona Lisa for four years. Each list here at TopTenz is handcrafted over a period of months by elite list writing artisans deep in the Swiss Alps. And while the following works aren’t as illustrious, they all required at least 1000 hours of labour from their [...]
If you’ve played a video game lately, you’re probably familiar with achievements. For those of you with social lives, achievements are little objectives in games that, when completed, reward you with points. You can then show off how many points you have to all your friends, because why play video games if you can’t brag [...]
It’s 2012. Our cell phones are more intelligent than us, we can download more hours of pornography than there are hours in our lives, and flying cars are right around the corner (maybe). And yet video games still have the same flaws they’ve had for years. Flaws that should have been fixed long ago, like… [...]
