Full-fledged List Analysis: Worst Things that Happened in 2017NuMetalManiak 340 items, the year has drawn to a close. Here's a new kind of rewind.
1. Las Vegas Strip Shooting: Definitely the worst. So many innocent lives lost in a massacre that really shouldn't have happened. Not a terrorist attack, but still the deadliest mass shooting in the US. What was his motive?
2. Fort Lauderdale Airport Shooting: The perpetrator for this one acted alone, but it still made people paranoid about air travel.
3. Kyrgyzstan Plane Crash: Another air-related incident, happened to kill a number of villages. Ouch. It belongs here.
4. Cleveland Easter Shooting: This was Steve Stephens, the guy who had apparently been in the area of a few Toptenners. It was scary, to say the least.
5. Death of Chester Bennington: Celebrity deaths are big news, but not world-changing ones. I realize this is a controversial opinion, especially considering this was a suicide.
6. Bombing at Ariana Grande Concert in Manchester UK: I mean, this is a terror attack where a celebrity almost got killed (like with Jason Aldean), so it counts as a terrible thing.
7. New Orleans Tornado Outbreak: Must've happened during Hurricane Harvey.
8. Hurricane Irma: Surprised this is in front of Hurricane Harvey, considering the latter's total damage and rainfall. Then again, Irma did depopulate a whole island.
9. U.S. Soldier Killed by ISIS in Afghanistan: One US Soldier? I mean ISIS is bad but how did this end up at #9?
10. Jerusalem Truck Attack: The comments here are mentioning Nice, France, but there was a different attack in Jerusalem which hurt a bunch of soldiers. Compared to one, in the above item, this was certainly terrible.
11. Stephen Hillenburg Diagnosed with ALS: The creator of Spongebob is still working on the show though. And ultimately how many people actually care?
12. Hurricane Harvey: The worst hurricane ever now, worse than Katrina.
13. Orlando Police Shooting: Given that Orlando suffered the previous shooting last year, this one was a crime against people who fired him. What disproportionate retribution.
14. Akhnoor Attack: Militiants kill civilians, only three, but still...
15. 2017 San Bernardino Shooting: Should probably mention this was a school shooting. What's wrong with this city?
16. Bella Thorne Dating Sam Pepper: REALLY?
17. Cincinnati Ohio Shooting: Okay there are gonna be a ton of shooting incidents on this list. I know that. Not the worst though, especially when the perpetrator is dead too.
18. Death of Gene Cernan: So he was the last on the moon and took the last photo of Earth. He was the last hope against Flat-Earth society.
19. Syria Airstrikes: These really need to stop.
20. Taylor Swift's Ticketmaster Scam: Do not care too much for this celebrity stuff, seriously.
21. Donald Trump becomes president: Well, technically, he DID become president in January (was elected last year). Still, GET OVER IT ALREADY, WE MADE IT THROUGH AT LEAST ONE YEAR DIDN'T WE?
22. Hurricane Maria: Worst Puerto Rican hurricane in history.
23. Death of William Peter Blatty: This happened in January and most people don't know him.

340. San Francisco Bus Crash: Jeez, this happened recently. It's like if someone here is always on the lookout for current news items that quickly become forgotten later on.
341. Southern California Wildfires: Though this is certainly of major concern.
To sum this list up, a ton of overreactions about things. Deaths of celebrities are bad, but they really aren't all the collective worst thing about this year. The Disney-related items aren't even close to anything this list has to go for, and honestly makes some people look pathetic. The real worst things that happen in 2017 are the mass shootings, terror attacks, suicide bombings, and driving-through crowds because they murder the most amount of people.
And, unfortunately, this kind of thing will continue into 2018, and no matter what, people will look to that year as a worse year than the last, as it always ends up being. Please, learn to realize this is how life is. I know many of the things I said above were cruel, but seriously, you need to understand this.
