For the second consecutive year and at great expense, the Big Empire has convened a panel of world-class experts in the fields of rocket scientry, brain surgeonery, pre-historical history and armithmathematics to determine the best stuff of the Millennium, 1001 to 2001. These lists are in addition to the First Best of the Millennium List developed last year, and do not usurp or replace them. Where the lists conflict each other is where someone's trying to blow your mind, man.
The lists have been developed using the most advanced computers and selection algorithms. Our scientists are made perfectly aware of all objects, events, people and places that have ever existed (known from historical record and just assumed to have existed). The scientists then scrutinize all possible options before ranking the Best (most defining, worst tasting and most troll-like) of the preceding millennium.
This year's lists were comprised by an elite crew of the 364 most accomplished and intelligent scientists in the world. The study cost the Big Empire $17,000,000 for administration, office supplies and overhead. In order to ensure impartiality, nobody received a salary or monetary compensation for their participation. However, the Big Empire did give everyone foreign white sports cars and paid for TGIF parties at Bennigan's. Scientists love to party at Bennigan's.
Without further ado, here is the 16 Best Lists of the Millennium:
