Things You Can't Trust

Wednesday, June 1, 2005

Recent discussion has focused on the trustworthiness of blogs. I was quite dismayed to think I may not be able to take everything I read in my aggregator at face value. The problem is that I keep a list of only 10 things I can’t trust. Currently this list looks like the following:

  1. Rental car agents
  2. Object references returned from a web service 
  3. Naked mannequins
  4. The television
  5. The newspaper
  6. The guy reading a magazine in a non-descript van across the street
  7. Financial planners
  8. Mayonnaise
  9. The Sith
  10. Tinky-Winky the Teletubby

My question is, do blogs break into the top 10 list of things I can’t trust? If so, where?

Clearly blogs are less trustworthy than Mayo. I'd also move Tinky-Winky up above the Sith and Mayo.

Scott- you are becomming the HL Mencken of our time as far wonderful and witty social commentary goes. This was classic.

I think you could drop the Sith off. They are acting in accordance with their nature. They are the "dark side" of the force after all.

Good point. You can actually trust the Sith - to do evil!
