The Business Insider (I believe it was the BI) had an article recently about the best hamburgers in the world. The best one according to them was in Israel. The article got me wondering why humans are so obssessed with chartacterizing what is "the best" of any particular item?
There certainly is a massive demand for these best of lists. This is evidenced by the fact that there are so many blog posts including in the "best" blogs such as the Huffington Post - that are titled the 100 Best of "this or that" in the world.

Life is a funny thing. There are times when a person feels great about themselves; their self-esteem is at its all-time high, everything in the world looks and feels as beautiful as a cool, crisp fall day…nothing can be better.
