2013 Year In Review

Or is it Year-End Review? Either way, we generally don't like these last minute look-backs. They're mostly good at making people go "ugh, shut up about that already" on the topics that were over-saturated in the media or "that was this year?" about most of the things that happened in the first half of the year.

Well, let's jump right in. Let's start off on a low note and list all of the notable people that died this year. As it turns out, quite a bit of people made this list. Since The New York Post has already done all of the heavy lifting, I'll just link to their article about all of the 2013 deaths.

Okay, that's out of the way, what else happened this year?

Footballer Manti Te'o had a fake girlfriend.
Edward Snowden. And...
We found out that the NSA spys on everything we do at all times.
China landed on the moon.
The legless Olympian Oscar Pistorious murdered his wife.
A crazy man pretended to do sign language 3 feet from USA President Obama.
Kim Jong Un is BFFs with Dennis "The Worm" Rodman
Some meteors came close to earth, one landed in Chelyabinsk.
The pope resigned.
The new pope is pretty progressive, for a pope.
Toronto Mayor Rob Ford is a habitual crack user and is still mayor.
Some jerks bombed a race in Boston.
There was snow in Egypt.
A handful of school/mall/place shootings.
Duck Dynasty.
A crazy man kept 3 women prisoner in his house for a decade.
Kanye West.
What does the fox say?
Marriage equality.
Government shutdown (US).
iPhone 5s.
Twitter IPO
Mars rover.

You guys, just so many things happened. Can't we forget about them all already, and try again next year? Have a safe and happy black-out-drunk tonight and best of luck in 2014!
