    The House of Ideas. Talking Time's 50 Favorite Marvel Characters!

    Thanks to Johnny Unusual for suggesting this video to kick off the countdown. Including my own, there were 15 ballots submitted for this list, generating a list of exactly 150 classic and new Marvel characters, only a third of which gathered enough points to make the final cut. What struck me...

    Excelsior! The Top 50 Marvel Characters Nomination Thread

    Marvel is maybe the biggest entertainment franchise in the world right now, and they built the foundation for that success over the course of over 60 years (more if you count the early days before the current era), establishing hundreds if not thousands of compelling characters for fans to fall...

    The Top 50 Fictional Relationships Voting Thread - I'd Do Anything For Love (But I Won't Vote That)

    Since the earliest stages of civilization, after mankind stopped worrying about outrunning predators (but before they solved the problem of public plumbing), we have devoted a significant part of our collective mind-power to a very important topic: shipping.

    “Why, hello, my name is Lionel Hutz. I’m an attorney in the burgeoning city of Toontown and, well, after a recent *squints* play-jar-is-em case got overturned, well, it ended up opening up a wonderful floodgate that allows me to be gainfully employed.

    Talking Time's Top 50 Office Supplies

    I asked and you answered. Talking Time has opinions on paper products. The thing is -- top 50 lists are a lot of work, pretty stressful, you know? And there's a lot on my plate right now. I just don't think I can take on this project. If only there were a way to lighten the load... Oh hey...

    No One Can Stop Mr. Talking Time's Top 50 32 & 64-Bit Video Games!

    The 32 & 64-Bit era of gaming (also known as the 5th Console Generation) was a time of tremendous upheaval. For 25 years video games had had mostly two-dimensional graphics (and when graphics looked 3D it was almost always due to some clever tricks). Game music had evolved beyond beeps and...

    Capsize the Vote! The Popularity Contest General and Nomination Thread

    Hey, I just thought I'd make a thread for the popularity contest. Partially because I'm going to do the archive thread in the near future. I am mentioning it here because I plan on making it a locked thread as the first post will be the masterlist of contests and subsequent posts will contain...

    30 for 50: Celebrating Five Years of Listings

    In just over half a decade, Top 50 threads have become an integral part of Talking Time, and we've had exactly 30 of them! They were all excellent, too, and have encompassed a wide variety of topics, from games to comics to mythical critters (and surprisingly, only a third of them have been...
