These people put various things in a blender.  If that's not compelling, I don't know what is.

(Yeah, I know they're just doing this to sell their blenders.  If there's a better way to sell blenders, I don't know what that is, either.)
The 50 Worst Video Game Names of all time.  While that doesn't necessarily mean they're the worst games of all time, it's certainly hard to get excited about trying out "Rosco McQueen - Firefighter Extreme"

Much to the consternation of a British colleague, the US uses a slightly different standard paper size (8.5x11) than the rest of the world (A4).  How did this happen?

Obviously, the answer begins in 17th-Century Holland:

This article indicates that the field of physics is currently trying to make new data fit existing models in somewhat arbitrary ways--this would indicate an imminent paradigm shift a la Thomas Kuhn.
It is not that the landscape model is necessarily wrong, but rather that if a huge number of universes with different properties are possible and equally probable, the landscape can make no real contribution other than a philosophic one. That is metaphysics, not physics.
Also, it's interesting to consider an infinite number of universes, all with different properties--consider doing the same expiriment when vastly different natural laws apply.
