[color=#000000ost_uid0]Personally, I don't see the problem. If we get two lists, let's get two lists! They're bound to be mostly different, and the similarities are even funnier. Let's just say the first one to post a list decides the next topic.[/colorost_uid0]

[color=#000000ost_uid0]Top Ten Reasons Worf Can't Hit Anything With A Hand Phaser

10. He's actually near sighted, but Klingons do not wear glasses.
9. He never bothered to read the instruction manual.
8. It looks cool to shoot from the hip, even though you always miss.
7. To play a joke on him, Q bends the beams away from the target.
6. Phase practice is not honorable.
5. He's trying to send them with the force, so he closes his eyes before firing.
4. He's trying to show off his pacifist side.
3. He thinks it'll impress women to not take the "wimpy" way out.
2. Phasers set on kill are changed by the computer to prevent death. No one has bothered to tell Worf this.
1.If he hit them... well... he wouldn't get to beat them up!

Since there are three topics pick one of the above.[/colorost_uid0]

[color=#000000ost_uid0]Top 10 Creative Misinterpretations of Forum Game Rules

10. RespondingintheOneWordAtATimeStorylikethis
2. In a "Top Ten Lists" thread, realizing that you can't think of an entire ten items for a particular list and therefore inconspicuously converting the word "ten" in the title to the number "10" and then pretending that you really were thinking in base 3 all the time. Not that [bost_uid0]I[/bost_uid0] would ever do that...
1. By doing a headstand, you get to use the [iost_uid0]bottom[/iost_uid0] 10 items instead of the top 10, because the bottom ones are funnier anyway
0. After converting the 10 to base 3, you think of another item, tack it on the end, and act like you're giving your readers a special "extra bonus" item in the list[/colorost_uid0]

[color=#000000ost_uid0]If we did this in binary, it would all go so much more quickly... :lol:

Regarding list rewrites - as Zeke says, the more the merrier. Myself, I tend to just click on "Preview Post" every now and then, which also updates the previous posts below.

Next list up, to those too lazy to look up, is:

[color=#000000ost_uid0]Top Ten Places Star Trek Characters Want to Visit on Vacation

10. Kira: The Mirror Universe (she's out of milk again)
9. Picard: Tenegra (to visit the Darmok and Jalad Memorial Museum and Gift Shop, where they supposedly have very good pie)
8. Wesley: The holodeck (to start checking out all the weird-ass slash fiction where he makes out with Riker (er, Troi))
7. Uhura: Center of the Galaxy (since that's evidently what it takes for her to get a man around here)
6. Spock: Vulcanis (so much nicer than Vulcan, and hardly anyone knows it's there)
5. Worf: Planet Bat'lethia (the world made entirely of bat'leths; unfortunately the PainStick Alpha has been overrun with American tourists)
4. Tucker: Pecan Pie. Oh yeah, it's a place.
3. Lwaxana: The Edo world (boy, could she use a rub-down, if you know what I mean)
2. Porthos: Anyplace where he can finally get some decent walkies instead of being locked up all day in a ready room with no cheese for chrissake

And the Number One Place Star Trek Characters Want to Visit on Vacation:

1. Odo: Daliwood

I'm sure you'll find WAY too many stories talking about what you describe. Ew, anyone?

Top Ten Things That Would Be Different If The Federation Were Run By Klingons


10. Picard would still be on the Watchers planet, lording it over his worshippers ("Bring me my Earl Grey, slaves!")
9. Troi would have the same sense of fashion as the Duras sisters
8. Come to think of it, Troi would be an actual warrior
7. Wesley would have killed himself over his dishonorable Academy deeds, assuming no one else beat him to it
6. Data would have a pet targ named Killer
5. [iost_uid0]Battlecruiser Vengeance[/iost_uid0] would be the hit TV show
4. Worf [iost_uid0]would[/iost_uid0] have killed Picard where he stood
3. The Romulans would quickly go bankrupt as the Klingons built houses and hotels on the two pro...no, wait, that's Monopoly...
2. Irving Berlin would be outlawed
1. Janeway: "Prune juice, black"

[color=#000000ost_uid0]Top Ten Ways to Tell Someone is Really an Infiltrating Shapeshifter

10. The real Troi would never wear something that revealing.
9. The real Worf always growls menacingly *before* slicing your head off.
8. The real Picard's head is shinier than that and generally contains fewer Chia plants.
7. The real Wesley would think of a better line to feed his Mom after dropping out of Starfleet Academy than something about living on other planes of existence.
6. The real Spock would never raise his voice like that.
5. The real McCoy, when checking to make sure the redshirt is dead, usually refrains from using an axe.
4. The real Odo... wait...
3. The real O'Brien orders his coffee "double sweet," not "double explosive."
2. The real Sisko ignores his job for weeks on end, yes, but only for something important like building solar-sail yachts for quick joy rides to Cardassia. Not just for no reason.

And the Number One Way to Tell Someone is Really an Infiltrating Shapeshifter:

1. The real Porthos is allergic to cheese.

(Hey, my turn to double up! Yay!)[/colorost_uid0]

[color=#000000ost_uid0]It bothers me that only a week or so ago, my wife thought it would be great to see an episode where every single non-main character was played by Jeffery Combs. All the background crewmen, all the villains, all the allies, etc. And now you have this idea.

Actually, an episode like that might be interesting. It would probably be [iost_uid0]Being John Malkovich[/iost_uid0]-ish.[/colorost_uid0]

Top Ten Reasons Why Archer Is Illogical

10. He watches water polo. Enough said already
9. He went into the Expanse despite the inability of superior beings (we Vulcans) to survive entering it
8. He's had the nerve to prove us wrong by surviving this long. Doubtless he's doing this out of "spite". That's just so incredibly petty of him, don't you think?
7. Because he's a human, silly. What else did you expect?
6. Several noted Vulcan periodicals devoted to logic make regular use of his utterances as examples to readers of how [iost_uid0]not[/iost_uid0] to reason
5. He wears white after Labor Day
4. He couldn't even recite T'Pok's Fundamental Theorem of Hyperdimensional Non-Binary Logic if his life depended on it
3. Continues to allow Reed within arms-length of weaponry
2. He named his dog "Porthos". Case closed
1. He has travelled through time, which is logically impossible. Therefore he is an element of the set of things that are illogical, and incidentally, since said set is a subset of the set of things which we Vulcans refuse to acknowledge exist, Archer does not even exist. (Psst, that's your cue for a mutiny, T'Pol)
