Ranking the Numbers 1-10: Counterpoints

About a month ago, the Earn This staff and a few of our friends put together our most ridiculous list ever: a ranking of the numbers 1-10. The criteria was intentionally unspecified, and the results were wonderfully disparate. It made for a fun article and some fun arguments. We had so much fun with it…

The Top 15 Advertising Jingles

  Ah, the jingle. Brainwashing at its most palatable. Like all aspects of advertising, jingles are carefully crafted to instill a need in you, the consumer. Without the company’s product, your life lacks meaning, and you are an inefficient, unsuccessful organism. You loser, you. Better do something about it right quick. The most insidious (and…

Ranking the Numbers 1-10

  Here at Earn This, we love ridiculous arguments. Perhaps the most ridiculous argument we’ve ever had is: What numbers are best? (This was a particularly amusing outtake from our “Top 5” podcast.) In the spirit of our Year of 100 Lists, we decided to create a definitive ranking of the numbers from 1 to…

Ranking the Seasons of The Office

I have repeatedly proclaimed my love for the American version of The Office. It’s surely one of my favorite TV shows of all time. But — as with virtually any long-running sitcom — it does have high points and low points. One thing I’ve been meaning to do since the show ended in 2013 is to…

Ranking Potential 2016 Super Bowl Halftime Performers

Billboard.com currently has a poll running for readers to vote on who they want to play at the next Super Bowl. They’ve selected fifteen potential artists, most of whom would be semi-reasonable selections. I’ve decided to rank them in terms of which ones I think would be the most sensible choices, with the second factor being which ones would put…
