Fun with the internet

The Huffington Post has a fun new feature: a People Ranker.

Of course I decided to play with it for a while.

First off, an epic battle between celebrities. I chose perennial tabloid figures Brad Pitt, Tom Cruise, Ben Affleck, George Clooney, and Vince Vaughn.

And, the winner is:

Vince Vaughn!?!

Really, I would have thought what with everyone talking about the birth of Brad Pitt and Angelina Jolie's daughter, he would have kicked everyone else's ass.

Shows what I know.

The next battle, was religious deities, and in the interest of political correctness, I tried to be inclusive. God, Jesus, Xenu, Buddha, Krishna, and Zeus all represented.

Satan kicked all their asses, by a significant margin.

Maybe it had something to do with 06-06-06?

Of course, that leads to the ultimate battle. Good versus evil.

I guess what they said in Spaceballs is true -- "Evil will always triumph because good is dumb."

And, in another epic battle from a while back, the pirates seem to be beating the ninjas by a significant margin:

I'm sure the Home Improvement Ninja will remedy this situation very soon.

And finally, one more very important battle, at least to me.

Yay! My blog beats Justin's.

I'm sort of boycotting Huffpo till she brings back Crittenden's Presidential IMs or whatever it was called.

So is "God" the Jewish god, or some sort of generic god, or...?

I intended it as sort of a generic "God."

But mostly, this was a fun game of comparing random things, like Google Fight, but in bar graph form.

Is it based off anything or completely random?

Dara said...

Scarlet, my impression was that the rankings are based on some calculation of blog or website mentions. I'm not exactly sure what the measurement is.
