5. Alex Jones and David Icke: Truth is so much stranger than fiction in these brave new times; Bohemian Grove and the oddness surrounding it can be found at infowars.com. Even odder yet, David Icke articulately leads one to believe in reptoids. Get Illuminized!

4. George Noory — Coast to Coast AM: A late-night program that sometimes offers goofy UFO stuff, but lately has been focusing more on the tyrannical misdoings of the current administration, as well as the documented proof of Big Brother well on his way.

3.

2. A League of Gentlemen (Series 1) DVD: Although the above remarks might indicate otherwise, this keeps me sane.

1. Milan Kundera — The Book of Laughter and Forgetting. This encompasses every emotion every person should ever feel.
