Best Things Related to or that Happened in 2018


The Top Ten

1 Net Neutrality Repeal is Overruled

Deserves top 3 the Senate are the true heroes for denying the FCC's dark plans to reverse the speed of internet by tampering as they please no longer a potentially sickening possibility, we can all sit comfortably now. With just the House all that's left we should be okay. - htoutlaws2012

It's not over yet. It needs to get past the House, and then Trump. - CloudInvasion

Seeing that the Senate voted with a big win, that gives me a great relief that the House will do the same because Trump signing the bill is almost in doubt. Two thirds away from victory! - htoutlaws2012

Well, not quite... - isaaonrtdmtr

Yes yes - iliekpiez

This year, people worldwide sent Valentine's Day cards to children at the Cincinnati Children's Hospital. - Gregory

3 Avengers: Infinity War

This movie has it ALL! Super awesome, extremely action-packed, very funny. One of Marvel's best movies. More of this please! - PhoenixAura81

One of the best experiences I had at the movies. It had everyone from Brolin to Johansson in it.

Ha, there's so many positive things happening yet people are voting for a predictable movie - B1ueNew

Loved the movie - iliekpiez

4 Prince Harry and Meghan Markle Got Married

I don't see the importance of this simple royal wedding and how it's number 1. There's much more significant events that happened throughout the world. But I can tell you that this list is pretty much US-biased. - Bolshoy_Brat

It's just a wedding. Two people are getting married. Yeah, they're royalty, but they're people. Nothing extraordinary about two people getting married. Congrats to them anyway though, I'm still happy for them. - SassyEquine

The reason this is #2 is because the bride was half African. I nearly cried once I saw that African blood is going to be in the British royal family. - TheRedstoneWiz

I don't care. - iliekpiez

5 SpaceX Launched and Landed the Falcon Heavy

I'm all for space exploration. - iliekpiez

It was such a historic mission when SpaceX launched the Falcon Heavy for the 1st time, and landed multiple boosters almost at once.
Although one of them crashed and a trajectory issue caused the Tesla to go the wrong way, making it a partial failure, the mission proved that we can launch something powerful, reuse, and land more than 1 rocket at the same time.
Someday, they’ll plan on launching and landing the same rocket twice within 24 hours. - Gregory

6 Eagles win their first Super Bowl in Franchise History

I'm a Patriots fan but good for the Eagles. They deserved a Superbowl. - Metarock

I'm from near Philly. When the Eagles won, it was CRAZY! There were hoards of screaming fans and just such overhype. - PhoenixAura81

And the patriots lost, for once. - Not_A_Weeaboo

Just a game - iliekpiez

7 Bill Cosby Found Guilty on All Counts of Indecent Sexual Assault in Retrial

It is very sad and tragic that he committed all of these crimes, but I am glad he got the punishment he deserved.

He was funny, but he deserved what he got. - Metarock

It's about time justice is served! - CloudInvasion

Totally deserved. - iliekpiez

8 Logan Paul Quit Daily Vlogs

Listen, Logan is a human. A flawed human, but a human. And he deserves to be treated like one. He can change, all people can change. If quitting vlogs is helping with that change, then good for him. But on another note, If he wasn't a famous YouTuber, people would be seeing how immature and reckless he really is. and lets be honest, if you knew nothing about Logan's fame and money or anything like that, just his personality and the way he acts, would you want to be friends with him? No. He's a jerk, he does stupid things on the internet because he wants attention, and he KNEW that he was posting an extremely graphic video on the internet for his young viewers to see and did it anyway. If he were treated like any other human, he could be fined and probably get into some legal trouble. But because he's famous, nobody bats an eye. And also, he took the video down and made an apology video, so that fixes everything. - SassyEquine

I never knew he did daily vlogs, but thank GOD he quit doing SOMETHING! I want him banned from the entire internet. - PhoenixAura81

Dumb move, but he was very much the victim of mob mentality.

Thank god - iliekpiez

9 Winter Olympics

The 2018 Winter Olympics were AWESOME! - PhoenixAura81

Just sports.. - iliekpiez

10 Los Angeles Parking Meters Helped Homeless People

Many people were homeless, until Los Angeles installed parking meters, which helped. - Gregory

And now, quite literally there are TWICE as many homeless in LA.

This is much better than sport. - iliekpiez

? King K. Rool's Smash Bros. Reveal Trailer

The Contenders

11 Blue Moon Lunar Eclipse of January 31

Saw it and it was beautiful. - BorisRule

That happened? - PhoenixAura81

I thought it will be a purple moon, I took the blue moon too literally.
At least I saw something rare

This was the 1st time in 152 years that a blue moon would coincide with both a supermoon and a lunar eclipse.
It won't happen again until 2037. - Gregory

12 Childhood Cancer STAR Act Passed


STAR is an acronym for Survivorship, Treatment, Access and Research.

Anyway, this looks to be a step up and a significant progress for a disease variant that only seems to get a very small 3.8% in overall Cancer funding. I sincerely hope this marks a significant history for Pediatric Cancer. - CrimsonShark

13 ISIS is contained

No! This is a bad thing

Not really. Sure they're losing a lot of territory to other factions but their ideology of Salafism would still live on. - Bolshoy_Brat

Is it? - Not_A_Weeaboo

14 North Korea & South Korea border meeting

One of the only notable things on this list. Now that both North and South aren't rubbing each other with their phallus for once, there would be a future ahead of us. - Bolshoy_Brat

Well, we have an extra 10 years to live! - Not_A_Weeaboo

Why is this one not the 1st? - aleksslatvia

15 March for Our Lives Rally

It seemed like a big deal, but ultimately, it's just going to get ignored over and over again. Not to offend anyone, but shootings are actually pretty uncommon in the US, and they're only brought to us as an important issue because of how overexposed they are on the news. It is good to stand up to the issue of shootings, but to dedicate all our time and energy on a not-so-big issue when there are much bigger problems to face is not a very bold idea. Once again, I don't wish to offend anyone. - CloudInvasion

This was now useless. Only a couple months later, the Santa fe High school in texas was shot up, proving that our Rally that emphasizedly said Never again to these mass shootings, were ultimately ignored - SpectralOwl

Ever since the Marjory Stoneman Douglas High School Shooting, the world was in fear, and people were too scared to go to schools.
With the March For Our Lives rally, it's spread awareness of us and how we deal with mental health problems and what we should do in the midst of anything hard.
Although gun violence still keeps persisting throughout our country especially. - Gregory


16 Trenton Lewis's 11 Mile Daily Walk to Work

Trenton Lewis's workers found out that since then, he walks 11 miles to work every day for his daughter, which is quite the feat. - Gregory

This Was Kinda Like A Love Letter To The Longtime Fans Of SpongeBob - JPK

22 Justin Timberlake's Halftime Performance on the 2018 Superbowl

Better than Lady Gaga.

Remember the selfie kid? - PackFan2005

Justin Timberlake is a good singer, and his performance at the 2018 Superbowl Halftime was flawless.
He nailed it. - Gregory

Justin's halftime was trash - The_Almighty_Loaf

23 White Hare - The Loud House White Hare - The Loud House

White hare? Why not BLACK HARE? RepOrtedD FOr raCiSM - Not_A_Weeaboo

24 Paul Ryan announces that he will resign
25 Conchita Wurst's emotional coming out as HIV positive that inspired the entire country to show solidarity

Still so many people have misconceptions about this virus, and it is great to have such a huge inspirational and iconic star to talk about it. I just wish the circumstances were different. She's currently in a state where it's not dangerous for her or her partners. - Martin_Canine

26 God of War (2018)
27 Fortnite: Battle Royale

God, ALMOST EVERYONE IN MY GRADE PLAYS THAT GAME! It got popular when Overwatch died about a year ago I think. I predict the game will die by next year. - PhoenixAura81

It's minecraft and overwatch put together - BoyGenius234

28 16th-Seed Umbc Trounces 1-seed Virginia

David vs. Goliath is the wrong pop-culture analogy for this 16-over-1: it's closer to Cinderella vs. Cinderella given that college basketball's All-Cupcake Conference is comprised of Duke and North Carolina and a bunch of potential Cinderella teams (including Virginia).

This was absolutely stunning to see a 16 actually beat a #1 was unheard of. - htoutlaws2012

29 Star vs the Forces of Evil's Season 3 and 4
30 Uganda Knuckles Uganda Knuckles

It was good while it lasted. - Not_A_Weeaboo

This list does not know the way

Ugandan Knuckles is just a messed up version of Knuckles the Echidna. - PhoenixAura81

More like one of the worst, this, fortnite and avengers don't deserve to be here there just either movies memes or games - B1ueNew

33 Stitch’s Great Escape closes

Actually, It Seasonally Operates
Ride Still Sucks - JPK

Actually, it's still open, but only operates seasonally now.
It's the worst Disney attraction of all time.
I heard about how bad it is.
So bad that it doesn’t get any lines. - Gregory

34 No Justin Bieber

Oh just wait. - Not_A_Weeaboo

He just announced he will be making an animated movie called Cupid, so he’s still around. - Gregory

35 Ending of the Thundermans

I liked that show.

Thank goodness Nickelodeon ended it.
It was a rip off of The Incredibles, and it revolved more on nonsense garbage than fighting crimes.
There was hardly any good comedy in it, and they overused the laugh track.
Thank goodness this disaster of a T.V. show is over.
It was overrated. - Gregory

36 PBS Kids Dot and Dash are Back

I was a long time PBS fanboy but I've never heard of this show. - Not_A_Weeaboo

40 Lars von Trier allowed back to Cannes

It was kinda ridiculous in the first place that such a masterful and intelligent storyteller was banned from the festival only for a tasteless joke. - Martin_Canine

41 Firepower - Judas Priest

I heard one song on the album through Google Play Music at school. I forget the name of it, but it was actually very good. Well done Judas Priest! - PhoenixAura81

42 Cinemas open in Saudi Arabia for the first time

The Crown Prince isn't what I would call a saint liberty-wise but his gradual reforms are surely going to help Saudi Arabia's society. - Bolshoy_Brat

Glad to see the country getting better, little by little, though I've never been there. - LemonComputer

43 A Quiet Place

47 Stoneman Douglas High School Shooting

I don't care if this was a joke I don't care if this was a troll I don't care who you are and I certainly don't care what anyone else thinks, this disgusts me. This is absolutely repulsive. Get off the internet and rethink your life, because this is not a joke, it is not a game, it is not something that you play around with and use in your little comedy routine. This is tragedy.This is death, this is murder. All those kids had parents and friends, all those teachers had kids or families, and they were brutally killed. You may think this is funny, you may think this is clever, but it is not. All this post is is sickening and nasty. please don't joke about this. Please. I'm sure it wouldn't be funny to you if you were there, if you were the one being shot at and the one that walked away with crippling PTSD. Maybe you would be the one that never walked away at all. This is not a joke. - SassyEquine

I completely agree with you people who put your opinions on here because seriously this is not a joke. You need to go do something better with your life if you think this is funny or a good thing. Imagine if you were in that.

Whoever submitted this, you are a sick human being who needs to leave the internet.

Well, It's number one on the list Most Shocking Moments in 2018
