    I went to this article to see where in the list I appeared this year, and instead I found this to be quite a strange list.

    Bono? What did he do this year. That ridiculous Product Red stuff?
    Brad Pitt? Is this just a popularity contest?
    J.K. Rowling? Isn't that the Harry Potter chick? That's influential?
    "Rain"? I had to wiki this one. It's a Korean pop singer.
    Jimmy Whales? The founder of perhaps the most important website on the planet, which contains such information as who the hell "rain" is? Below George Clooney?
    Kate Moss? She's #201 in the top 200. Huh? Oh, and what did she do? influence people to marry Tom Cruise?

    AND, it looks like I got bumped off the list this year entirely by Paris Hilton, which I hope, HOPE, is influencing no one at all.

    Surprised that Crosby is in the top 5, then again, the Penguins are out of the playoffs :)
