    42 of those "people" did nothing to make the world a better place in 2011. This list has nothing to do with influence and everything to do with current celebrity status.

    why they are influential???
    What did they do for us???
  5. orendadude
    Well, Warren Buffet is the biggest stealer of working peoples money in the world. He makes Goldman /Sacks look like petty criminals. The major impact Stevey J had was with all the other rich bitches on this list. I mean Kayne West? Boy I really want my kids to grow up and act like him. He's a train wreck. What this list says is "if you are not rich and famous, you are nothing. Actually this is a pretty good photo list of some of the "influencial" 1%

    Well the number one has no influence at all. This is just a random list of faces seen all over the media.
    I agree with the above comments - who made this "list" ?

    Great to see fellow dane, Rene Redzepi. Nr. 1 restaurant in the world, Noma, located in Copenhagen. Denmark is the cultural capital of Scandinavia by far.

    where the fuck is anders behring breivik?
  12. Enter your name
    Breivik is a sick, evil man. If you have sympathy for a fella like that, you are most likely yourself sick and evil in your fucking head! He killed i-dont-know how many innocent people. Parents lost their child, A child lost a parent or both. Life was just taken away. And for what?????
  13. lolzz
