...Number 8: Earth (scene of broken ground in a dry field).
Earth, also known as dirt, or "ground", is the material that
covers every dead person after buried. When becoming wet it
turns into mud, which could be ruinous to your child's new
holiday suit, and is definitely the horror of any
just finished washing the floor. This is especially true for
families with pets.
(Scene of picnic at beach) Earth can be found in various shapes
and forms, such as sand on the seashore. If you pack a picnic
and bring it to the beach, sand can get into your sandwich
(which is why it is called a sandwich). Sand gets into your
shoes and onto your clothes and whatever you do to shake it
off, it will still come home with you. At extremely high
temperatures, sand can be turned into glass, which breaks
when dropped and is the cause of numerous cut fingers and
toes. Glasses are the cause for temporary blindness when
people loose their glasses after having relied on them for some
time. Glass can easily become a life-threatening hazard in
middle eastern areas where stones are hurled at people driving
their cars just a stone throw away from home, and we should
be reminded that stones, as well as glass windows, are
essentially hardened earth.
Number 9: Air. (Scene of airplane)
Air is the number one cause of fires in the world. The oxygen
in the air connects to carbon and other elements and along
with suffocation, poisoning (with carbon monoxide), and plain
old pollution, the air feeds the flames, bringing in its wake
pain and death, burning down our forests, killing livestock and
ruining nature, and just causing devastation everywhere
around the world.
Number 10: Water. (Scene of the sea)
Besides drowning people, breeding mosquitos and serving as
the basis for "soft drinks" like Pepsi and Coka-Cola, water is
also the foundation for youtube hoaxes like HHO motors and
the inspiration for the largest man-made hydroelectric
environmental disasters like the Aswan dam or the Ural sea dry
up. Water is also the environment and natural habitat of the
giant squids, the sharks, and the Loch Ness scare, constantly
threatening civilization as it is known today.

||Well, at least it's not in other: general ...
||// Vacuum, that being the thing that encompasses the rest. //
||Vacuum isn't a "thing", it's the absence of anything - an empty region devoid of any physical object (electromagnetic radiation, electric and magnetic fields don't count). Like socialism, but with substantially more potential for development into something useful.

||Of course, there's always "zero point energy" to be harvested ...
||Sounds like web page that takes forever to load, and
is mostly ads when it does.
||I suspect sites that start out with: 10 most, 10 worst,
20 best, (number and extreme descriptor). A new
Google feature that can find these web sites and
ignore them or shove them a few thousand down in
the results would be great.
||Time is one of the worst. I'm ok today, but I might not be as good
