Time to be influenced.

TMT wants to congratulate Shigeru Miyamoto for being the reader's choice pick for Time Magazine's World's Most Influential People. The father of video game design, famous for creating such staples as Mario, Donkey Kong, The Legend of Zelda The Legend of Zelda, and future classics like Mario Galaxy for Wii, beat out #2 seat, Korean pop sensation, RAIN, by more than 300,000 votes.

(I don't know who RAIN is, which again shows my general lack of global information, something I am trying to work on. Note to self: pick up a RAIN smash single). But this is the stupid part of the list, the Fan Favorites, which includes such influential characters as Tyra Banks, the Cast of Highschool Musical, and Eliot Spitzer.

The real list chosen by Time Magazine includes much more appropriate characters, their profiles written by other VIPs/friends. Read Vladimir Putin by Madeleine Albright, Dalai Lama by Deepak Chopra. Or Hillary Clinton by Rob Reiner. Ok so I don't know why Mr. When Harry Met Sally gets a say, but still. It is a fun way to pass the time.
