He includes the classics (The Dewey Decimal System; Richard Nixon’s “Enemies List”), the ever-changing (Maxim’s “Hot 100″; Crains’s40 Under 40“); the essential (Shit List; Craigslist), and the quirky (The World Rock Paper Scissors player’s responsibility code; Fibonacci Sequence).

100. Generations of Adam (Genesis) (An Old Testament classic)

83. Maimonides’s “13 Principles of Faith (83? Come on!)

13. Schindler’s list (He said it, not me)
