This might be an already well known link. I saw it in a Bill Simmons colum and liked it. I was disappointed that 'Lord of the Rings' wasn't on there.

I saw it when they linked to it on deadspin. I thought it was funny, albeit misnamed. Most of that seems to be stuff that yuppies like. Poor white people (as far as I can tell) seem to love going to Wal-Mart, urban white kids listen to the same rap artists that urban black kids do, and I really doubt NASCAR fans are pretending to like soccer.

You haven't read enough - that's "the wrong kind of white people."

I made an honest appraisal and I'd say I'm only into 39 of the 84 things listed. (assists, traveling, multilingualism and coffee...of course! Whole Foods, Bad memories of High School, and Oscar Parties...not so much). Of course, there is a running debate in the comments section over whether or not Jews count as white people, so maybe that explains my sub 50% rating.

Not just yuppies but liberal types too. I'm pretty darn white and I only like 17 of these items. The list started off so promising with "The Wire" and t-shirts then it descended into crap like recycling, whole foods, and the Toyota Prius.

I think the word you all are looking for is "hipsters" as seen on last night's King of the Hill. Thankfully I'm pretty anti-hipster with only seven items on the list to my liking. (who DOESN'T like dogs?)

I prefer cats, though I will make an exception for little dogs like Lhasa Opsos or Shih Tzus.

I must be really anti-hipster then with a grand total of 4.5 things on the list that I like (I can't stand Whole Foods, but about the only thing I miss from Bloomington is Bloomingfoods (bloomingfoods.org) and their incredible selection of honey).

As for dogs, the scar on the inside of my right thigh from where a dog tried to either castrate me or kill me and only missed by about half an inch pretty much turned me off to most dogs forever. I don't hate them, but I certainly wouldn't have one as a pet and far prefer my cats to any dog.

7? 4.5? Come on - there's at least 10 things everyone likes on there. I think you must be counting them differently than I am. For instance, I like #7 diversity. When I read the entry, am I similar to the kind of white person who likes diversity in the entry? No. But I still count it.

Likewise #4, assists. Am I super into assists? No. Could I even name you the assists leader in the NBA this season? No (I assume it's Steve Nash, who should have his own entry in the blog). But if you ask me, "hey, do you like or not like assists" I would have to say "I like assists." So I count it.
