About List 5

Everyday* for a year I will ask a question, it is up to you, dear reader, to provide the answer. It’s not a quiz. It’s more like a highly personalized poll but the answers are often insightful, humorous, honest, and refreshing. The key to the project is to list 5 answers with the best ones being compiled into a book. Don’t be fooled, coming up with five answers for some questions is harder than it seems. It’s an open project so anyone who wants to comment can.

Read the subject and leave a comment.
If you don’t want to comment, then wait until you see a question you want and comment on it.

If you like the idea, then send the link to people you like.

If you don’t like the idea, then send the link to people you don’t like.

Send it to that friend who sends you 384 forwarded emails per day.

Send it to the friend that is constantly filling out surveys online.


Hell, I don’t care who you send it to, just so long as I get enough answers to compile a book.

If you want weekly updates sent to your email address send an email with the subject WEEKLY to list5things@gmail.com.

If you want to make an anonymous comment send an email titled ANONYMOUS to list5things@gmail.com and it will be archived or posted anonymously.

You get the idea at this point.

This is a totally interactive site so you are allowed to answer however you want, including simply listing 5 items; however, what will truly differentiate your answer from others is the personal stories behind them. Why do you feel that way? What made you choose that certain thing? Obviously, my entries will be a little longer than most, and not everyone will feel the need to open up quite as much. It doesn’t matter. Make your list however you are compelled to, since it is yours not mine. You owe it to yourself and society to contribute. Thanks in advance for your help, and if you have any questions what’s wrong with you? This is a pretty simple concept.

*Everyday = during the week and spotty on weekends.
