    Always enjoy your writing Karl. Good list and with your name ( I know every one takes a hit at it) you could have featured yourself as a bonus. Funny and nice list!!!

    Great list. I’d like to add Max Schreck, the actor who played Nosferatu in the original 1922 film. “Schreck” means “scary” in German.

    I love Karl’s lists too. They always get LOL and great writing. Mine always tend to get ‘What kind of idiot wrote that?’ In my next life, I will be more like Karl :)

      You should quit writing about important issue that people are passionate about, such as Star Wars. ;-)
      You and Lee Standberry should talk, he gets picked on a lot for his lists too: http://www.toptenz.net/author/leestandberry

    There is another artist with the last name Rock. His name is Rob Rock http://www.robrock.com and he is an amazing singer of melodic power metal. Bob Rock, however, was the ruination of Metallica.
