Top 10 Biggest Events of 2023

The biggest and most important things to happen in 2023. Feel free to contribute. There will be much more to add as the year progresses.
The Top Ten
1 Twitter Changes to X
2 The Super Mario Bros. Movie Gets Released
3 The "Barbenheimer" Phenomenon
4 Turkey-Syria Earthquake

This was an absolutely devastating wake-up call for Turkey and Syria. Countless lives were lost in a magnitude 7.8 earthquake. It was deadlier than any other worldwide since Haiti in 2010, as well as Turkey's deadliest since 526, and Syria's deadliest since 1822.

What's worse is that it occurred in freezing conditions, and people are likely to get hypothermia due to the lack of homes and shelter, as many were destroyed. This should definitely be above everything else on here at this point. Rest in peace to all the lives lost and prayers for their families, Turkey, and Syria.

5 The Ukraine War Drags On

It's been going on for two years now. The good news is, it looks like Ukraine is winning, but very slowly.

Where this war of aggression by Russia ends is anyone's guess.

Ukraine is still in crisis due to Russia. These are dark times.

6 Titan Submersible Incident

This was a huge tragedy for sea exploration and tourism. The Titan submersible, created by the OceanGate company, was attempting to locate the Titanic but went missing. It took over 4.5 days for the debris to be found. There were five affluent individuals on board, including one aged 19 or above. They are confirmed dead after the submersible imploded from the extreme underwater pressure. Rest in peace to them.

If this disrespectful, futile "tourism" is brought to an end, their deaths will not have been in vain.

7 The U.S. Speaker of the House Election Fiasco
8 Pope Benedict XVI's Funeral
9 Hawaiian Wildfires

This is Hawaii's most severe natural disaster in recorded history. One of its islands was in flames, and the city of Maui was affected. The loss of life was unprecedented for Hawaii. Rest in peace to all the lives lost there and prayers for their families.

10 All Quiet on the Western Front Wins 7 BAFTAs Including Best Film

It's a shame the Academy Awards embraced wokeness because this movie was superior to the Michelle Yeoh project that won there. At least this Felix Kammerer vehicle received its due at BAFTA.

The Contenders
11 Coronation of King Charles III

On May 6, King Charles III and Camilla, Queen Consort, will be crowned at Westminster Abbey.

We always remember everything having to do with the royals, even if we're not British.

12 The Death of Lisa Marie Presley

This was such shocking news for the world and especially for her family. The only child of Elvis Presley passed away from cardiac arrest on January 12th, just three weeks before her birthday. She would have turned 55, which is way too young anyway. Rest in peace (1968-2023).

13 The Brazilian Congress is Stormed by Jair Bolsonaro Supporters
14 The Death of Steve Harwell
15 Some Countries Bring Back COVID-19 Restrictions
16 Canada Wildfires

As if California's wildfires weren't bad enough, these are on a whole new level of worse. Canada can't seem to allow fires to be controlled. They sent smoke to New York, making New York's air quality the worst it has been since the 1980s - even worse than after 9/11.

17 Damar Hamlin is Hospitalized

He experienced cardiac arrest, which led to his hospitalization. Thankfully, he was given CPR right on time. Lately, most people with cardiac arrest have passed away. It was a miracle for him, his family, and sports.

This caused the first cancellation of an NFL game since the 1980s.

18 Revealed Texts from Fox News Hosts Including Tucker Carlson and Sean Hannity Prove They Knew the Big Lie Was a Hoax

Fox News admitted that they knew they were peddling lies to boost ratings. While they were openly promoting The Big Lie that the election had been stolen, behind the scenes, they made it clear they knew Joe Biden was the rightfully, legally, and democratically elected President of the United States.

"Sidney Powell is lying by the way. I caught her. It's insane." "It's unbelievably offensive to me. Our viewers are good people and they believe it." - Tucker Carlson

"Sidney is a complete nut. No one will work with her. Ditto with Rudy" - Laura Ingraham

"that whole narrative that Sidney was pushing, I did not believe it for one second" - Sean Hannity

"Please get her fired. Seriously... What the f***? I'm actually shocked... It needs to stop immediately, like tonight. It's measurably hurting the company. The stock price is down. Not a joke." - Tucker Carlson after fellow Fox News correspondent accurately fact checked a tweet from Trump about the Big Lie

"it's remarkable how weak ratings make good journalists do bad things." - Bill Sammon, Fox News senior vice president.

19 Mitch McConnell Becomes the Longest-Serving Leader of the U.S. Senate

22 Mitch McConnell Joins Joe Biden to Tout Bipartisan Infrastructure Law
23 The Death of Sinead O'Connor

This was such a huge loss for rock 'n' roll. Its best Irish legend left this world on July 26th. She was known for covering Nothing Compares 2 U by Prince and was known as a rebel. Rest in peace (1966-2023).
