Best Things Related to or that Happened in 2018


The Top Ten

1 Net Neutrality Repeal is Overruled

Forget Net Neutrality, talk about Article 13 instead. - MrCoolC

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

Well, not quite...

Well, many states are introducing their own laws, so the overruling process isn't happening YET.

2 90,000 Valentines Sent to the Cincinnati Children's Hospital

These are pedophiles sending Valentines to children. This is just creepy.

Way better than some overrated rehashed movie - B1ueNew

How is this under the Royal Wedding? This is heartfelt. The Royal Wedding is just a wedding - PackFan2005

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

3 Avengers: Infinity War

Best movie of the year

Amazing movie 10/10 would watch again

No. It has Hulk and Thranos.

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

4 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

You could say that for Avengers infinity war but except instead of a game it's a movie - B1ueNew

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

He deserved it - B1ueNew

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

Totally deserved. - iliekpiez

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

6 SpaceX Launched and Landed the Falcon Heavy

Today as of typing this comment is 2/6/19, a year after the launch. It was one of the only good things that came out of last year in my opinion. They are planning to use the rockets again most likely in March 2019, just a month away! - Gabriola

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

7 Winter Olympics

Ruined by a school shooting. NBC ruined the Olympics.

CL AND EXO performing at PyeongChang 2018 closing was amazing! I'm glad South Korea chosed these artists! Nation's PICK!

Just sports.. - iliekpiez

The 2018 Winter Olympics were AWESOME! - PhoenixAura81

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

Now I just need KSI and Ricegum to delete their channels or get permanently banned and I'm good with youtube - B1ueNew

Thank god - iliekpiez

9 Blue Moon Lunar Eclipse of January 31

Why it's only 8th, it's very seldom

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

10 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

I don't give a crap! - B1ueNew

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


The Contenders

11 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


12 Los Angeles Parking Meters Helped Homeless People

This is much better than sport. - iliekpiez

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

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

13 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

14 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

15 March for Our Lives Rally

These people want to take away your rights, keep that in mind. - railfan99

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

17 My Hero Academia Season 3
18 Trenton Lewis's 11 Mile Daily Walk to Work

19 Justin Timberlake's Halftime Performance on the 2018 Superbowl

Nice - PageEmperor

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

20 RiceGum quit Daily Youtube

26 Paul Ryan announces that he will resign
27 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

28 God of War (2018)

This game looks great, amazing graphics, Can't wait to play it, - B1ueNew

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

Why is this Steven Universe ripoff here?

So far, I like Season 3. - KalloFox34

Hate this show - B1ueNew

30 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

31 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

32 Pepperoni Pizza Removed from Dominos India

First we have to deal with sjws but now vegans? What has the world come to?

One of the best things to happen in 2018!

Lol @SpectralOwl, don't forget about them bot-voting Gurmeet Ram Rahim Singh on the top of every list as well.

That's what they get for bot-voting Dimash Kurdibergen to the top of every list - SpectralOwl

33 Uganda Knuckles Uganda Knuckles

It was good while it lasted. - Not_A_Weeaboo

This list does not know the way

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

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

34 Nintendo Announces Super Smash Bros for Switch

I love Super Smash Bros. Thank God it's coming to the Switch. - PhoenixAura81


35 2 Men Walked Across Antarctica Solo
36 No Justin Bieber

Oh just wait. - Not_A_Weeaboo

Didn't he just get married yesterday? , And plus Justin bieber is not that terrible now, compared to 6ix9ine, Camila cabello, Cardi B, Ricegum etc - B1ueNew

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

37 BTS World Tour: Love Yourself

BTS is worse than the Cold War - Kanyae90

BTS is awesome, but I've never seen any concerts by them. They did an awesome New Years rocking' Eve performance. - PhoenixAura81

38 Ed Pratt Became the 1st Person to Unicycle Around the World

In 3 years 175 days, Ed Pratt became the 1st person to unicycle around the world, at 21,000 km.
He did it all for charity. - Gregory

39 Great PlayStation 4 Exclusive Games Were Released

I don't get why fortnite and avengers are higher, I mean this is better (except for those who have a xbox one or switch or of, Rip), but we got God of War, Spiderman, Detroit become human and a Shadow of the Colossus remake and were getting last of us 2, great year Sony, keep it up Sony! - B1ueNew

40 Sherlock Gnomes

Gnomeo & Juliet, Sherlock Gnomes... If they ever give this gnome-related series another chapter they should pick a title that isn't a lawsuit waiting to happen!


41 Super Smash Bros Ultimate
42 Man Completed Walk Across Antarctica

This isn't the right name, 2 men walked across Antarctica solo. - Gregory

43 Stitch’s Great Escape closes

Actually, It Seasonally Operates
Ride Still Sucks - JPK

It closed on October 2018.
It's the worst Disney attraction of all time.
I heard about how bad it is.
So bad that it didn’t get any lines. - Gregory

44 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

45 Ending of the Thundermans

Let's hope that Henry Danger ends soon too.

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

46 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

47 Miraculous Ladybug Season 2
48 Thailand Cave Rescue

In Thailand, a soccer team with 12 boys and a coach was trapped in a cave 2 1/2 miles long.

The team was stuck in there for days, and they went 10 days without food or clean water, and they had to meditate to help endure the dark life down there.

A group of Navy Seals came in to rescue them, each swam in for 6 hours, then gave food to them, and swam 5 hours out.

2 1/2 miles might not look like a long distance to travel to the boys, but the cave was so dark, the currents were so strong, and going opposite directions, and the cave had such an intricate structure, that it made it so hard for the seals to get in and out rescuing the boys.
It had been compared to climbing Mt. Everest without a guide.

They started the rescue mission and got the 1st 4 boys out, though in the next go there was a flooding problem in the cave, and they had to clear it out, leading to a 20 hour hiatus, which involved drilling the whole time, and then continued the real mission, ...more - Gregory

49 Lewis Pugh Became the 1st to Swim the Length of the English Channel

He swims the coldest waters on Earth, 5 hours a day, and from July 15 to August 29, 2018, he swam 527 km (327 miles 774 meters 51 cm) and became the 2nd person ever to swim the full length of the English Channel and the 1st to swim eastward from Cornwall at Land’s End to Dover in 49 days 12 1/2 hours.
The 1st person ever to swim the English Channel’s length is Ross Edgley, and he did it in June westward as a part of him swimming around the U.K. and becoming the 1st person to do so.

He overcame mother nature’s obstacles.
He had hypothermia, he was stung by numerous jellyfish, he was severely sunburnt, he faced rough waves, his skin was over-exfoliated by long exposure to salt water and rough waves, and he faced storms and harsh winds.
In fact, on some days the weather was so bad that he called of his stages and later swam at night to make up for the flaws.

The 1st half of the swim was ok, but in the middle, everything changed.
He suffered tendinitis in ...more - Gregory

50 Athlete Justin Gallegos Became the 1st Runner with Cerebral Palsy to sign with NIKE
