No one takes Time magazine seriously, go through the list and 90% of the people you've never heard of and if you see why they're famous it's for something no one cares about. For instance the president of the Philippines is featured on the list. That begs the question though, who's the president of the Philippines? I don't know and neither do you because who gives a **** about the head of state of a small third world country? Want another? How about the president of Somalia whose claim to fame is just that he happens to be the new president of an unstable African ****hole. With that criteria one would think the entire list would be made up African presidents, after all they go through so damn many of them. They've got a few more presidents of third would countries on the list from what I saw.
