What about ways to love your lever?

Top n ListsI have had a boss explain that one's annual review is not the time for honesty or career development plans.  No, you see, if you're doing well, it should sing your praises, so the manager looks successful.  If you're doing poorly, long before you get to review time, she'd have gotten you to leave (perhaps by finding you a position you're better suited for).  In any case, here are the top 50 ways to get your employees to leave.

SB Commercials

Top n ListsGee, I'd have thought a rainy Super Bowl would have favored Chicago.  But Addai/Rhodes made it happen on the ground, I guess.  All in all, a sloppy Super Bowl.  It was almost as sloppy as the claims of this fellow.  He says he was going to propose using a SB spot.  He says his girlfriend doesn't know.  He says (at register.com) his name is Bill Thomas.  If she doesn't know, son, are you sure she's the one?  (Actually, I suspect it's some sort of self-promotion or viral marketing, independent of the marriage thing.)

In any case, what's left, if the game's disappointing?  Commercials (that, and Prince's butt-kicking, if weird, Dylan/Hendrix/Foo Fighters halftime show.)  And how were the commercials?  Disappointing, as well.  In the past, my friends and I have found a couple of 8's and 9's (on a scale of 1-10).  This time?  Top Score: 6.5.  And, apparently, there's no correllation between the scores and when the commercial break occurs during the game.  See below for the gory detail, if you like.
(Oh, I guess you could call this the ranking of the "Top N 2007 Super Bowl Commercials".)
