100 Years of Greatness/Awfulness

In honour of LWOT's 100th year of publishing greatness, the editors compiled a list of the 100 greatest and 100 worst things the human race witnessed during the periodical's tenure as the world's greatest fiction magazine. 

For suspensful purposes and due to our eccentric nature, the list will be drawn out as a 10-20 part series. 

And now, indulge your primal urges on:

The 100 Greatest Things

94. The metric system: School children no longer have memorize a complex set of conversion numbers. After decades of widespread use old people still haven't figured out temperatures in Celcius, much to the delight of anyone under the age of 40.

93. The Toronto Blue Jays: They're the team that brought us two World Series wins and the one with McCain punch. 

91. Pinball machines

90. Effective birth control methods: You know why.

The 100 Worst Things

94. John Connor teaching the Terminator to smile: There were so many great things about Terminator 2: Judgement Day and James Cameron almost ruined them all with his hokie attempt to humanize an unstoppable killing machine. 

93. Arthur Meighen: He was voted both the least effective and squintiest eyed prime minister.

92. Madonna: We're not saying she ruined Guy Ritchie's career, but it went downhill once they got married and picked up again during their impending divorce. 

91. SARS masks

90. Shredded wheat
