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?
