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

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

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

Regained faith in humanity just now. - Not_A_Weeaboo

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 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

5 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

6 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

He deserved it - B1ueNew

7 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 give a crap! - B1ueNew

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.

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

9 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

10 Winter Olympics

The 2018 Winter Olympics were AWESOME! - PhoenixAura81

The Contenders

11 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


12 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

13 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


14 The page item limit goes from 20 to 50 on TheTopTens

Yes - EliHbk


Thank GOD - PhoenixAura81

15 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

16 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

17 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

26 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

29 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

30 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

31 Pepperoni Pizza Removed from Dominos India

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

Oh no, now they don’t have the best kind of pizza!

He did it all for charity. - Gregory

Actually, It Seasonally Operates

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

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

40 BTS World Tour: Love Yourself

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

BTS is worse than the Cold War - Kanyae90

41 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

42 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

43 Miraculous Ladybug Season 2
44 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

45 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

48 A Tennessee Couple Visited Every Disney Theme Park in the U.S. in Less Than 24 Hours

It took me about 8 years and 10 months to visit every Disney theme park in the US (excluding the water parks). I went to Disney World in August 2006 and Disneyland in June 2015.

On October 18, 2018, a couple from Tennessee visited every Disney them park in the U.S. in less than 24 hours.
Doing that's harder than running a marathon, which people have compared doing 4 parks at Disney World and doing all of Disneyland CA to. - Gregory
