16 American Stouts, Ranked

Last Friday afternoon, I had the nerve to step away from my desk for as long as it takes to microwave a Hot Pocket and contemplate my sins, and Deadspin took advantage of those three unchaperoned minutes to damn near burn the place to the ground by running a piece with the title "Stouts Are The Best Beers." This was… » 3/17/15 12:59pm 3/17/15 12:59pm

Cat Wines, Ranked

Beer is the best drink. That has never been in doubt. But sometimes, you're forced to class it up for a date night or go on a health kick, and this is when wine is your friend. More specifically, this is when cat wine is your friend. » 3/03/15 12:21pm 3/03/15 12:21pm

Train Horns That Keep Me And My Wife Awake At Night, Ranked

My wife and I recently moved to a house in the Dunbar/Spring neighborhood of Tucson, Ariz. Because we had never visited the house in the middle of the night, we didn't realize quite how loud the freight-train horns were. We have adjusted, in part with the help of earplugs. (To spoil another potential list, let me… » 2/16/15 12:49pm 2/16/15 12:49pm

Kitten Bowl Player Names, Ranked

Cat puns are the highest form of humor. Now that Hallmark Channel has unveiled the roster for this year's Kitten Bowl, it's time to subjectively and correctly rank the competitors' names. » 1/16/15 11:34am 1/16/15 11:34am

46 Times Vox Totally Fucked Up A Story

If you work in the media, you're going to get things wrong. Accuracy and timeliness are in conflict, and when you're dealing with vast amounts of information, accuracy will sometimes suffer. No one is happy about this, but it's how it is, and this is the tradeoff you implicitly accept when reading news. If you are… » 12/30/14 2:52pm 12/30/14 2:52pm

DJ Drama's Gangsta Grillz Mixtapes, Ranked

DJ Drama is arguably the most prolific and important DJ of the Golden Mixtape Era, which started roughly a decade ago and is still going strong—among rap heavyweights, only DJ Khaled comes close. The Philadelphia native somehow made himself the face of underground Southern hip-hop, proving instrumental in the rise… » 11/12/14 10:23am 11/12/14 10:23am

Superheroes, Ranked

Earlier today, after Marvel announced plans to release about 837 new superhero movies over the next few years, heated debate broke out among Deadspin staffers over such questions as whether or not it matters that Batman is a crypto-fascist, whether anyone in the entire world will be rooting for Superman in the… » 10/28/14 5:59pm 10/28/14 5:59pm

Songs From The Last Waltz, Ranked

We're talking the film here, not the soundtrack or box set or whatnot. No poems, because the poems sucked. Thank you in advance for completely agreeing with this. » 10/21/14 11:03am 10/21/14 11:03am

The Worst Road Users, Ranked

The streets are not safe. Lurking around every corner there is an asshole cyclist or a maniacal UPS driver ready to plow into anyone in sight. In our parks, children and the elderly are routinely yelled at by runners, cyclists, and stoners on longboards (watch out, breh). And in our cities, uniformed officers are a… » 9/04/14 4:19pm 9/04/14 4:19pm

Sierra Nevada's Beer Camp 12-Pack, Ranked

Last week, I said that the current number of breweries in the United States—we're up to a bit more than 3,000—is unsustainable, and I was probably wrong. As long as these fledgling operations keep a modest focus on their home markets, there's no reason we can't have a German-style system that supports nano breweries… » 8/01/14 11:25am 8/01/14 11:25am

Taste Test: Milk And Honey Original Café Mix, The Alleged Best Cereal

Back in February, our Tim Marchman posted a list that purported to rank breakfast cereals in order of deliciousness. His selection of something called "Milk and Honey Original Café Mix" for the top spot—on what's a pretty comprehensive list of the breakfast cereals you can find in your typical supermarket, mind… » 7/31/14 5:02pm 7/31/14 5:02pm
