top 5 reasons us Northern Girls are cuter when its 38 below (with the windchill)

1.When its this cold and slippery, we have to walk in tiny little shuffling steps. Nothing looks more vulnerable. and Vulnerable=adorable
2.Parka's, mucklucks. I suppose this is technically two things, but most of us know that its fashionably inappropriate to wear more than one of these at the same time. It's overkill
3.messy hair. On account of the toques or hoods of course noses and cheeks.
5.when we stick our arms out of the driver's side window with a long ice scraper to scrape of the windshield.

Of course, these things aren't exclusively girlish. Men are stuck with all these things too. But they just look cold. Us girls look like an old navy commercial.

Top 5 Things I miss about college that I never thought I would

1. Meals in the cafeteria, same time, same place, same people...

3. Studying for exams with the classic study gang (I know that not all of you will agree, but I must say, there were some good memories made there)
4. Being stuck on the hill with the same people day after day, after day, after day (sure we went stir-crazy, but we also had a lot of fun doing stupid things)

Top 5 Lines from Tobias in Arrested Development

2. "They steamrolled Gobias industries!"

Top5 Things Dan Didn't Do (But Wanted To) On His Birthday Yesterday

5. Take Tara to the Dutch Pancake House. It's a Dutch birthday tradition thing.
4. Take Rob to the Dutch Pancake House. Apparently if you're Dutch, you have to go there as many times in one day as years you have lived. The last time you go, the time that's also how old you are, you get your birthday number of pancakes free.
3. Have his mom bring him breakfast in bed. Dutch birthdays are very tiring, obviously, due to all the trips to the Pancake House, so a grown Dutch person really needs their strength on birthdays, and that starts with breakfast in bed.
2. Play Dutch Blitz with as many family members and other Dutch people as possible. At the Dutch Pancake House. He really likes the Pancake House.
1. Catch a connecting flight to Holland (or Deutschland as the Dutch people call it) after landing in Toronto, instead of going to his cousin's wedding, but not before stopping for a Dutchie at the Tim Hortons in the airport.

Happy Birthday, Dan!

Top 5 Bands I Listen to Right Now

Yeah, Holly pretty much nailed it for me. That was amazing HA.

1. Hip Hop Hope is pretty cool. They do a lot of original material, but they also do some of these really wicked covers where
2. they take secular rap songs and make them all Christian. They're pretty cool. Like, "I ain't saying you're a gold digger, but
3. you should build treasure in heaven pastor." It's kind of a scathing commentary on the whole money grabbing Christianity
4. thing. Very poignant. Oh, and they also take the swears and replace them with fun, safe words that anyone can enjoy. Like,
5. "Those mega-funky knickers are full of sugar." It's hilarious.

Top 5 Greatest Beards. Ever.

I spent the last month cultivating a beard with all the passive effort I could muster. Alas, a beard-trimming accident not three days ago resulted in the complete loss of my beautiful work of art. I am sad.

As an ode to five of the greatest beards ever to grace the planet, and as inspiration to myself as I begin the process all over again (not to mention for those gentlemen--and ladies, should they so choose--who are considering partaking in this most holy act of worship unto God), I present the following pictures:

Top 5 Poker Hands

1. Maverik's hand - Able to draw any card from a deck of cards. Entirely useful when on dire straits.
2. The Hot Chick's Hand - Seems to be able to distract even the best of card sharks, though also in drawing alot of attention, for hottness, it seems to tip others off of tells. Tapping teath, looking at nails stuff like that are its downfall.
3. The Cheater's Hand - Cheater's often prosper cause they have neat tricks. often a cheater needs sleaves to get this down, but yeah, cheater's are pretty cool, for their ingenious methods and devices. Their hand's are quicker than your eyes. That's awesome
4. Strait flush
5. The Right Hand - a good hand for when your cheating has gone bad or your winning has gone well.

10 dollar buy-ins at 7pm be there.

Top 5 Creepy things about creepy gym guy

1. You know that "putting out" vibe that people give when they're looking and think they're all that...need I say more.
2. This guy is close to 50 years old and he spends most of his time in the gym - I'm sure he's there every day for at least 2 hours.
3. He has more muscles than any 50 year old man should (and I'm usually all for healthy living)
4. He talks to me everytime I am there, but he never initiates conversation with Dan. And he always forgets that he's spoken to me before so it's always the same question: "So, have you been coming to this gym for a while?"
5. *With a bullet* He wears spandex outfits ALL THE TIME! And insists on stretching every way imaginable right in front of the treadmill I'm running on.
Guys, you may think this is just pure awesome, but let me tall you...IT'S NOT!!!! If you think it is, you are totally wrong and God help you in ever finding a nice girl!

Top 5 Things that Have Gotten too Cool for their Own Good

Top 5 Disguises to Use In Order To Gain Access To Someone’s Home To Rob It And Yet Not Technically Be ‘Breaking In’, As Defined By The Criminal Code

1. A Clown

Probably the most effective disguise, the clown suit allows a person to arrive unannounced and with little need for an excuse to enter one’s residence. They are universally known for being obnoxious and overbearing, which is a great tool in disorienting the owners of the home you are ripping off. You might also choose to use some of the Joker’s tactics, such as a flower that sprays sleeping gas, to knock out your victims. Also, you will have probably made a child very happy in the process of stealing his television. This could help the judge be more lenient in sentencing you, should you fail to escape.

2. A Long-Lost Cousin/Friend From College/Lover

People are easily embarrassed, and hate to admit they don’t recognize you. This works in your favour when they really don’t, in fact, know you. By pretending to be a special someone from their past, be it distant family or someone with whom they had a one-night stand (though a passionate night it was), they will accept you into their home for fear of looking insensitive and silly. When they lean in to give you a hug, knock them out. Proceed with your pillaging.

3. A Location/Talent Scout for a Movie

People are suckers for fame. Promise them a good cocktail party story (“Yeah, the house they used in that new movie is OUR house! We even got to meet (insert name of famous hot person)! So good!”) and they’ll practically be giving you their stuff. Feel free to video tape the entire thing for laughs later on. Also consider sending them a copy, so as to still give them a good cocktail party story (“Yeah, they told us they were scouts, when really they were just clever thieves! See this part coming up – yeah, that’s when they knocked me flat! So good!”).

4. A Prophet of Apocalyptic Proportions

This works most effectively in ultra-religious neighborhoods. Watch any number of televangelists/Armageddon-zealots and you’ll know that with the appropriate words and force you can scare anyone into doing whatever you want. Leave a bottle of holy water on the way out and you probably won’t have to worry about being reported to the police. Repeat this at the same home several times for maximum looting.

5. Jehovah Witness

Granted, most people avoid letting Jehovah Witnesses into their homes like they avoid drinking expired milk. Which is why this is number 5. Still, it allows a thief to present a meek and mild, even holy appearance, while secretly scheming to be anything but. It also allows for a dramatic entrance: “Hi, my name’s Bill. I’d like to share with you the good news of Jesus Christ…He says to give me all your money, sucka!” At which point it helps to trip them, throw a potato sack over their head, or perform the Vulcan death grip.

Top Five Ways I will make up not paying my dues! (As per others commenting I should but didn't)

5. I will refrain from sending Ryan fan mail addresed to Ben Kweller as the real Ben Kweller has a restraining order against me and by sending my fan mail to Ryan I feel somewhat still apart of the real Ben's life......sigh...
4. I will fly out to Ontario and give Kyle back his protractor I borrowed in our first year...
3. I will go over to Otto's and cheer for the Oilers while they play the Leafs...
2. I will paint a life size picture of Bryan for Dan to place in his office...(Bryan I may need you to pose nude for that one)
1. I will stop trying to steal Dan from Slynn (I can't promise that I won't stop staring at Dan from the tree though...)

Top 5 Reasons the Original Pre-Erasing Stop Five site has become Legendary

1. Its humble beginnings. A simple post, as I recall, on the value of Sean Aston to the film world.
2. Its legendary arguments. The first one of note, of course, involved the means of entering a land of fantastical possibilities.
3. Its traditions (some of which have been continued). Some that come to mind are the monthly "Top 5 Deathmatches," and "Top 5 moments in the life of . . ."
4. Its mysterious "missing posts."
5. Its potential to become a worlwide phenomenon, which I believe has only been increased in this new manifestation of Stop Five Records.

That's my first Stopfive historian post in a long time. My book should be released sometime in the new year.
