I periodically post places to find resources that are supposedly the “most popular” of something or other. I might or might not agree with the criteria used to determine that popularity, but I nevertheless find some useful pieces of information.

Top Pet Names in the USA
Top Baby Names in NYC
Most Pirated Movie
