The Counter-Intuitive Comparison of All Things

The Big Chart, created by The Counter-Intuitive Comparison Institute of North America (CICINA), attempts to find the single best thing in the world using a tournament-style bracketing system to compare 16,384 things in 8 categories (ideas, art, people, fuels, words, other animals, places and other things).

Is the Bilbao Guggenheim better than McDonald’s French fries? Are penguins better than Miracle Grow? Can anything beat heated seats on a cold November day?
