Ten reasons why I don't like lists

1) They are highly subjective

2) They are inevitably incomplete

3) They give a false impression of order of importance

4) Little great literature takes the form of lists

5) Despite their importance, the Ten Commandments are just a small part of the Bible

6) You almost always forget something

7) You sometimes repeat yourself (see 2 and 6)

8) They're adolescent (see Nick Hornby)

9) They are pretentious - "Ten greatest albums of all time" - yeah, right!!!

10) I can never think of the right number of things to fill the list.
