Top 10 game shows

Top 10 Game Shows

Game shows are as American as homemade apple pie.   They are a testament of time, in the televised broadcasting world, where the first such shows appeared in the thirties.  With the overall components that are compiled to make a game show function, the finished product is always great to watch.  Everything from the hosts, contestants, props, and prizes, these shows have something for all.  Game shows have evolved during the times – they have deeper competition ideas and higher prize money to obtain.  Since the nineties, GSN, a game show channel, has had a number of personally created game shows, such as Catch 21 and Bingo America, and have also aired some classic game shows like Family Feud and The $100,000 Pyramid.  Here is a top ten list of the best game shows that have come across our screens over the years.

10.  Wheel…of…FORTUNE!

9.  Is That Your Final Answer?  Who Wants to Be A Millionaire?

8.  The Secret Password Is…

7.  Let’s Make a Deal!

4.  Two Families Enter.  One Family Stays.  Family Fued

3.  Come on Down!  The Price is Right

2.  Pyramid

Well their is the list for the top 10 game shows. My favorite is Deal or No Deal.

Presidents can be musically inclined but only 10

Well as you guys can see I like top 10’s because top 10’s give you what you need to know and want to know with 10 facts that are important. So here once again is another top 10.

United States Presidents are people like you and me, who lead daily lives and have everyday likes and dislikes, but rarely do we picture them as such. To many, the President is the executor of national laws, the Commander-in-Chief, a diplomat, the key legislator, and various other roles that require plenty of other hats. But, how often do you see the President fitting into the role of an athlete? An author? What about a musician? With President Obama’s recent musical performances that didn’t have any vetoes coming from the audience, have you thought about just how many Commanders-In-Chief also have worn the Musician-In-Chief hat?

10. Warren Harding

9. John Quincy Adams

8. Thomas Jefferson

7. John Tyler

6. Chester A. Arthur

5. Woodrow Wilson

4. Harry Truman

3. Richard Nixon

2. Barack Obama

1. Bill Clinton

So who do you think is the most musically inclined president, let me know what you think. And by the way I don’t know if you noticed but Bush. Sr and Bush. Jr did not make the list, just thought you should know.

Know what you do and do what you know.

Top 10 Obscure Forms of Government

We’ve all heard of a democracy, a republic, and probably a monarch-type government. In the past, there have been monarchs ruling society, tyrants, enlightened despots, and so many other types of leaders. In the end, it’s safe to say that the world has seen several different types of governments over the centuries

Even in today’s world, different governments rule different countries. Despite the idea of Westernization of the world and the thought of “spreading democracy,” there are plenty of countries and areas in the world that aren’t ruled by the widely-known democracy, or even a republic. In the end there are plenty of different governments that exist in the world today. Here’s a list of the top 10 forms of government you’ve probably never heard of

10. Meritocracy

A meritocracy is a type of government that appointments people to work but they are given certain responsibilities based on their ability and talent, instead of focusing on family connections, wealth, or popularity. In a meritocracy, those who are able to show their talent are the ones rewarded.

9. Diarchy

A diarchy is a government in which two diarchs are made heads of the state. Many times, these diarchs are rulers until their death, or until the power is passed on to a family member or child.

8. Kleptocracy

Kleptocracy is a government similar to a plutocracy where a few people rule, but only rule because of their wealth. However, with a kleptocracy, those who are already rich generally start to embezzle money from those beneath them, making themselves even richer.

7. Exilarchy

An exilarchy is a government that is usually monarchic or theocratic that has rule over a certain religious sect of ethnic group rather than being in control of the entire society. The ruler, called an exilarch, is usually one that is honored and is powerful in a certain religion or ethnic group.

6. Plutocracy

A plutocracy is a government where the wealthiest people in society have the most power. This means that economic inequality is generally at a high, while social mobility is extremely low
 

5. Ochlocracy

First used in Polybius’ Histories, an ochlocracy is a government that consists of a mass of people, or a mob. Today, this type of government is generally called a mobocracy. An ochlocracy has no clear authority at all. This means that only dispute or questions that arise are usually contended and then closed of shut off generally by brute force, commonly seen as “might makes right.”

4. Minarchism

Minarchism basically states that the government should have minimal function, especially when playing into the lives of individuals. The government theory states that the only legitimate function that the state has is to protect each individual from aggression. Those who believe in monarchism see government as a necessary evil, but agree that a state does need to exist in order to protect the life, liberty, and property of those they are ruling.

3. Technocracy

Definitely an odd government, a technocracy is a government in which scientists and technical experts rule. A technocracy does not depend on political capital; instead those in charge are selected based upon how much knowledge they know about certain technical aspects. The most knowledgeable are put into power of their own specialized section to provide for efficient and effective administrative functions. For example, a few medical experts would be in charge of the entire health care system, or public education experts would control the public education system

2. Ethnocracy

Said to be non-democratic by nature, an ethnocracy is a government where the top officials of a certain ethnic group hold all of the power. This generally means one religious sect, race, or language is said to dominate every other option politically. This ethnic group is generally the minority in the location, meaning that minorities are generally discriminated against by the state itself and may be subject to human rights violations and repression.

1. Timocracy

Timocracy is definitely a government that many haven’t heard of or seen. A timocracy is a government based on the ideas that only property owners may participate in government, but those who are elected to rule are generally those who have a strong love and need for honor.

1. The Internet

Now you are wondering about this top 10, right. Well remember that blog post that said quote “Kids are said to fill our lives with poignancy and inexplicable joy, yet it appears many parents would rather be tossing back some bourbon and rolling around in their skivvies than taking care of their beloved offspring. A new study by Carsten Grimm from the University of Canterbury in New Zealand has found people rate sex as the top activity that brings them happiness, followed by drinking alcohol or “partying.” Caring for kids (yawn) fell down the list at number five. God also got the cold shoulder, with people rating meditating and religion at number four.” Well this top 10 is the top 10 things that are better than sex.

What do you think about this. Do you agree or disagree, Leave me a comment.

Another Top 10

As the new year is only one month away I thought it would be nice to look at the top 10 New Year’s Traditions and Superstitions. Check this out.

From the ones you already know to the truly bizarre ones you’ve never heard of, here are the Top 10 New Year’s Traditions and Superstitions in the United States.

10. Fireworks

fireworks

Fireworks, cheering, singing and noisemakers on New Year’s Eve are believed to scare away evil spirits. Do we really need an excuse to set off fireworks? Probably not. But we’ll take this opportunity to light the sky (and maybe the grass in our neighbor’s yard). Music and singing are a part of most celebrations and I’m pretty sure the 20 people doing a poor job of singing “Don’t Stop Believing” at 1AM aren’t concerned with keeping evil away in the new year.

9. Making Resolutions

resolutions

Many believe the first day of the New Year should be spent thinking about the past year and resolving to improve oneself in the coming year. And while the media recycles old stories about quitting smoking or getting out of debt and your parents use new year’s resolutions as a guilt-inducing tactic to get you to move out of their basement or pay back what you owe them not all resolutions have to be a life-altering ordeal. Resolve small in the New Year and you’ll feel good that you got something accomplished.

8. Paying Off Your Debt

credit

It sounds like a resolution but you’re supposed to do this before January 1. This way you’re even when the new year arrives and you start with a fresh slate. On New Year’s Day you shouldn’t pay out anything or make loans because this signals money leaving you. So buy your lottery tickets on New Year’s Eve.

7. Kissing at Midnight

kissing

New Year’s Eve ranks second behind Valentine’s Day as the worst day to be single because when that clock strikes midnight everybody’s smooching but you. Granted, this is only painful for about 60 seconds (unlike Valentine’s Day which serves up a full 24 hours of candy hearts, barely clothed cupids and ridiculous romantic gestures). The New Year’s Eve kiss is a symbol that your affection and closeness will last all year. So don’t grab some weirdo and kiss them, find a friend and give ‘em a hug.

6. Singing “Auld Lang Syne”

auld-lang-syne

A Scottish poem from the 1700′s; it literally means “old long since” or, in American, terms “days of long ago” or “the good old days.”
The song goes as such:

Should old acquaintance be forgot,
and never brought to mind?
Should old acquaintance be forgot,
and days of auld lang syne?

CHORUS:
For auld lang syne, my dear,
for auld lang syne,
we’ll take a cup o’ kindness yet,
for auld lang syne.

5. First Footer

no-bert

The first person to visit your home on New Year’s Day has significance. It is considered good luck for a man to be the first person to cross your threshold (you have to let him in; he shouldn’t use a key to let himself in). It’s even better luck if he’s tall and good looking with dark hair. I’ve read specifically that the first footer should not have flat feet, crossed-eyes or a unibrow. So Frida Kahlo and Bert from Sesame Street should not be let in. Best of all, the first footer should bring along gifts like bread, fresh fruit, salt, and wine. If you’re a handsome man delivering wine on New Year’s Day, I’m guessing not many people are going to turn you away.

4. Nothing Should Leave the House

Here’s one that had to be thought up by someone who didn’t want to run errands. Nothing should be taken out of the house on New Year’s Day. If you’ve got things to give to others, return to stores, etc. put them in your car on New Year’s Eve because they shouldn’t leave the house on New Year’s Day. Some people allow items to leave the house after something has been brought in. The idea here is that something should be added to your house before anything is taken away. So if you’re a First Footer with a goodie basket, you best buy that stuff on your way over.

3. Lay Low & Do (Pretty Much) Nothing

couch-potato

A lot of info out there said not to do laundry or dishes (since you “wash away” luck and these can cause a death in the family in the coming year), not to take anything out of the house (including trash) and not to wash your hair. Sounds like the hang-over crowd was looking for a little justification to lie on the couch all day.

2. Eat, Eat!

black-eyed-peas

While you are lazing about on the couch, make sure you are eating luck foods:
• Grapes – 12 of them, one for every month of the year
• Pork – because pigs root forward when they eat while chickens scratch backward (and bacon is delicious)
• Black eyed peas – here’s a good luck recipe that’s quite tasty and gets you your black-eyed peas and pork all in one meal
• Lentils – which resemble coins
• Greens such as collard greens, chard, cabbage and kale – the folds of the greens resemble money
Many of the foods that are “good” to eat resemble money or have to do with moving forward.

1. What You Do at New Years, You Will Do All Year

While most of these superstitions and traditions are meant to usher in good luck while keeping bad luck at bay, what you do can reflect how you’ll live in the coming year. Recovering from a big party the night before? Your year will likely include being surrounded by friends and good times. Motivating to work out on New Year’s Day? Well look who might just drop 10lbs in the new year. Cleaning and organizing around the house? Sounds like a year full of getting things done. Sleeping the day away? Maybe you won’t be getting too much done in the new year. Reading Top 10 lists? Sounds good to us. Happy New Year.

So what do you do on new years eve? leave me a comment.

Know what you do and o what you know.
