I can't think of a two and three off the top of my head. I'll edit and add them later if I come up with anything definitive.

Tastes change and I don't think I could list a top 3 ever, let alone one that would remain constant.

However, I don't think that anyone coudl complain legitimately about one such thread annually....

.... for those interested, check out what people were saying in equivalent threads during 2002 and 2003!

#3 can change depending on the mood I'm in. 1 and 2 have been pretty consistent for years now.
