I found this absolutely amazing thing this morning courtesy of Miss Cellania - Dapperstache's Periodic Table of Awesoments. You can follow the link to see it in its natural state, or view it below (click on the image to blow it up to a readable size) so you can follow my rambling commentary...
Like the Periodic Table of the Elements, which I studied in high school and then again in college before crashing on the rocks of calculus and switching to Linguistics, Dapperstache's table seeks to establish ranges of characteristics and relationships among the "118 fundamental awesoments that compose all good things."
Now, I might have noted some of the things he either included in (William Shatner, awesoment #55) or omitted from (Feminine Arm Hair) the table, but that's just quibbling over a major contribution to our understanding of the world around us. It explains the reason that such forces of nature as Chuck Norris (awesoment #11), Giant Squids (awesoment #60), and Boobs (awesoment #13) exist and relate to each other. I think I might have ended up a chemist instead of a useless, droning blogger if the periodic table I had to study had been as interesting and useful as this one.
So, anyhow, check out Dapperstache's table and draw your own conclusions about what makes the world an awesome place.
It surely isn't the Olympics, the election season, or Bud Light, after all.
Congratulations to Dapperstache on a great idea, well executed.
Have a good day. More thoughts tomorrow.
