Most Shocking Moments in 2018

2018 has had a shocking start, so here are some things that shocked the world.

The Top Ten

Stoneman Douglas High School Shooting

My heart goes out to all of those in Florida right now. 17 people were shot dead in this attack, making it just barely worse than Columbine. What makes this worse was that the perpetrator was a rabid white supremacist and extremist who was suspended from roughly seven schools previously, but no one cared about his behaviour despite the tip-offs until he actually performed the act. While gun-control does come into play here, it's more of the fact that no one payed attention to this guy's behaviour before-hand despite the fact that this was a disaster waiting to happen.

I live close to this school (not in Parkland, but close), and the past few days have been scary. With tightened security and a friend of mine threatening to bring a weapon in self defense and getting suspended for three weeks, it's hard. My condolences go out to the families who suffered from this shooting.

I also live within 15 miles of Parkland, and I was really scared the day of the shooting.

I'm honestly at a loss of words right now for this event. Not to mention that this is only one of many tragic events to take place in Florida in recent years of this late decade. I give my condolences to all affected by this high school shooting and I wish the best of peace to those whose lives were taken in this massacre.

Absolutely horrible. It has to be the worst school shooting since Columbine.17 people lost their lives. Praying for the families and friends of the victims who unfortunately lost their lives way too soon

The Sandy Hook Shooting was worse (27 victims, excluding the perpetrator), and that's only the fourth worst modern mass shooting in the modern United States.

Donald Trump Said "Why Do We Want All These People From 'S***hole Countries' Coming Here?"

As an American, I am officially ashamed..

And people say Trump isn't racist. Don't go using the "mainstream media" excuse here now. The fact that Donald Trump let this slip out of his mouth only finally proves how racist and horrible of a person he is. And I thought him cutting funding for historically black colleges and attempting to ban transgenders from the army already made him as prejudiced and discriminatory as he already was.

Yeah. The sad part is that I'm not even making this stuff up. Just Google it and you'll see that what I say is verifiable by various sources.

I just saw this today (on this list only) and now I'm thinking "Why is Donald Trump our president?! "

This was a very offensive thing for him to say. Does he think that they want to be from war-torn countries? As Americans, I believe we should shelter the immigrants and refugees in their time of need. No hate to anyone, but I think he at least should have been nicer, even if he was turning people away.

2018 Flu Outbreak

Apparently a bad comment made by Donald Trump and a school shooting that only killed 17 people is worse than a flu outbreak that had 80,000 people die

Flu shots don't work so don't say that we should get them, my grandpa got his flu shots and two weeks later got the flu. I didn't get my flu shots after that because my dad says they don't work and they don't.

Why everyone should get Flu shots

I got the flu and a cough that lasted a whole month. But it is gone now. Everywhere, there is people with the flu.

Logan Paul's Dead Body Video

The worst part is people forgave him.

He deserved to be dishonored in an excruciating way even I haven't watched the video but I sense disturbance

It's not just that he showed a dead body on video for the public to see, it's much more than that. Him and his friends were told not to take any film or photo of dead bodies they came across, but they did and disrespected that poor victim and his family. They mocked the suicide victim, and made him some kind of side show for them to use for views, which is inhumane.

Imagine being one of the families of the victim. You came across the video that you see of your spouse, sibling, parent, or friend who hanged himself and is in a video of punks laughing their ass off about him.It would crush you to see that someone you were once close to ended up killing himself, and was just treated as a joke.

Also Logan's followers are young kids who watch his videos. They either become terrified from what they've been exposed to, or think that it's okay to do what Logan did. Having a irresponsible role model who doesn't have compassion for the victim is not someone that we want to have ...more

The man is a legitimate psychopath. There is no empathy in him. As he and his waste-of-oxygen friends laugh over the body of a man who took his own life, his raving fanbase ignores common decency.

This video actually came out on the last day of 2017

False Alarm of Hawaiian Ballistic Missile Threat

I went to Hawaii not long after this happened and I was scared as hell that they were going to set off the alert so again but only this time, for real.

Incompetent & negligent government employee makes worst possible mistake; won't be punished. Tell me again why we want more government employees in charge of more facets of our lives.

I'm Sure That Was Scary As Hell

I live in Hawaii, when I got this, I said:
"What? , this is false! "

Tide Pod Challenge

I can't wait for the Loose Wire in a Bathtub Challenge.

First, the cinnamon challenge. And then, the burning and/or eraser challenge. And now, the Tide Pod challenge? What's next? The Stick a Pencil Down Your Throat as Far as You Can Challenge? At this point, I wouldn't be surprised if that challenge did exist.

Yeah you're right because a this point most teens will die of poisoning but hey, I ain't the idiot who created this challenge.

What's next? Killing your friend challenge? Hitting yourself with a brick challenge? Prank calling the president challenge? Burning your middle school challenge? -Nerd2019

I can't tell you how STUPID AND BRAINLESS people who do this challenge are! People who do this challenge are going to get themselves KILLED! WHY do people do this, to not be a wuss, to be popular? Well that is just major stupidity and DO NOT EAT TOXIC LAUNDRY DETERGENT!

Death of Stephen Hawking

So sad... He was an amazing man. He had a disability/disorder but he was still amazing. R.I.P.

I laughed when I saw this. It wasn't surprising. We're all gonna die. He had it coming.

He was a mastermind. Rip Stephen Hawking you will be missed

Even though I'm not agree with him about his beliefs about god and the creator I loved him as great scientist who never gave up and always tried hard and fought his illness god bless his eternal soul

12 People, Including 5 Children, are Held Captive and Discovered Chained to Their Beds in California

Those parents should go to hell

This is sad. I hope the parents are put in prison for life.

Their parents deserved to die a slow, and painful death by cannibals (okay maybe I went too extreme, but don't care they still deserve a harsh punishment).

Absolutely horrid.

Toys R Us Announced the Closing of 180 Stores

That's where I got all my birthday presents and stuff like that when I was 8,7,6, 5 etc.

Toys R us goodbye I enjoyed going to your stores when I was a small boy R.I.P

That was my favorite store when I was younger.

It's 1/3 due to Amazon because everyone buys online now. 1/3 due to Epic Games because lots of money was spent on skins, gliders, pickaxes, and emotes in Fortnite. And 1/3 due to Apple because spoiled toddlers are getting iPads and iPhone Xs.

Donald Trump Refusing to Apologize for S***hole Comment

And this isn't considered as bad as a YouTuber making insensitive jokes. At least Logan Paul isn't the face of a country.

It's not like any Trump hater will forgive him if he apologizes.

What a monster.

Donald trump is the most horrible president in history.

The Contenders

2018 Doomsday Clock

Thanks a lot kim jong un

Hopefully all goes well at the meeting.

I just looked that up and I noticed it had an Iron Maiden song title in it (the song itself is awesome).

Welp. I hope ww3 doesn't breakout before gen 8 of pokemon. This is a little too close.

Baghdad Suicide Bombings

2 suicide bombings occurred, killing at least 38 people and injuring 105.

I love liberalism. Voting a trump quote over these innocents crying.
Edit: I meant dying. Oopsie whoopsie, I did a poopsie.

Slayer Disbands

Not yet they're doing one last tour. But it might end by 2019. Well the slayer fans will be raining tears when it happens.

Now that is just being butthurt

I can understand, they've been together for over thirty years, nearly forty. But still, it's sad.

Okay now this is just unfair!

California Wildfires

Wildfires that affected an entire state: 14
Trump saying something mildly offensive: 2

I know many people who have been affected by these fores, including some people who lived in Paradise. My family lives all over California, so I check the news every day to make sure that the fires aren't too close to them.

Not shocking happens every year here

Trump: not important
Trump After: Oh

Death of Stephen Hillenburg

It was a national holiday. There was no school.
I was watching videos till I stumbled upon a video saying that Mr. Hillenburg is dead.
At first I didn't believe it but a few days later, I found out that it was true.
Rest in peace, the second founding father of my childhood!

This must be the saddest day for the entire Nickelodeon community. We lost the true star on Nickelodeon. RIP 1961-2018 - Nick81

This made me CRY. the man who made my childhood real.

rest in peace, Stephen hillenburg.

Why does everyone I like dies?

Santa Fe High School Shooting

Considering this shooting took place so close to a week or two before high school graduation, as a high school senior awaiting graduation, I have to say absolutely no senior, let alone any school student from any grade level, should have to experience a tragedy like this near the end of the school year. As always, I can only say I give my condolences to those who were affected by yet another school shooting this year.

That must have been terrifying for the students. I was watching videos on how to survive an active shooter situation after I found out about this because I was scared it was goona happen to my school!

Trump will just pray and do absolutely nothing about it but run his mouth.

This school was three hours away from my school.

Texas High School Shooting

Who cares for shootings

People who care about human lives & the fact that many victims are underage.

Get this above slayer disbanding, how is a band disbanding above a high school shooting? - BlazingParasol

So Sad

I’m just so sick of these shootings!

We should just stop shootings, and help the families, yet we should make it through mental health problems, think twice, and stand up against our choice of them.

Aziz Ansari’s Sexual Misconduct Allegations

This one was ridiculous and the accuser was so incredibly hard to believe. It sounded more like an awkward date that ended in awkward sex

I'm so sick of these sexual harassment accusations

Anyone with a brain could already tell how creepy this guy is just by watching a single episode of Parks & Rec. His mannerisms are so gross.

She was mad that he did not want to have a relationship with her, and got even.

Alabama School Shooting
Harrisburg Shooting

So many shootings, so little time

Death of DJ Avicii

Mainly shocking because he was only 28 years old.

Here's the worst part... he committed suicide due to thoughts of depression.

Not that I'm big into conspiracies or anything, but some believe that he was just about to expose elite pedophilia before he was killed

And it seems like everyone forgot the next day outside of Sweden

Southern California Mudslides

It's mayhem here in SoCal, there has been fires and mudslides left and right. I remember my school became a shelter for people that lived in the outskirts of my city because there house was so close to the danger

So far 17 people have died and 43 went missing.
Pray for SoCal.

Marvel Creator Stan Lee Died

RIP. He was 96 and had a good life. He was probably ready for it, he was so old.

He never got to see Endgame!

I was crying!

I'll miss the Stan Lee cameos in future Marvel movies. :(

The Philadelphia Eagles Won the Super Bowl 52

Finally, a good shocking moment on the list

I thought this list was made by Patriots fans because I even forgot this was shocking moments. I thought this was "worst" moments. But yeah this was really shocking and was good

I thought that the Minnesota Miracle was a shocking moment, but whatever.

Yay! Go eagles!

YouTube Moral Drama

My goodness, is there anything right about our society?!

Yes one thing Marilyn Manson.
When he's retires humanity will be screwed.

Ever since Logan Paul’s corpse video, the YouTube Community is starting major drama over Logan Paul’s video.
The drama also revolves around Shane Dawson’s video about pedophilia.
