Okay, this is an in&out based on...

David Letterman's nightly Top Ten List*Cool*

It's a rolling list of top ten countdowns on various topics or items selected by you*Smile*

Each time you count down the "Top Ten" (usually "reasons" but not necessarily), until number 1 is reached

Once you've reached the number 1 item for each topic, the next visitor posts the next topic and the countdown begins at 10 once again!

The idea is to have fun, be inventive, vent if you need to (fun!) and try to top that last numbered item. Examples of topics you might use:
*Bullet*The Top Ten reasons reality shows are so popular
*Bullet*The Top Ten reasons George Bush took us into Iraq
*Bullet*The top ten names Marilyn Manson considered before choosing Marilyn Manson

(Please, please, its non-political and just for fun...)

Got the idea?
What do you have to lose?

Follow the format below.

Start new topics with:
Top Ten ...
Start new countdowns with:
Number 10: ...
