Worst Things that Happened in 2018

2018 has started, and already bad things are happening!

The Top Ten

1 Stoneman Douglas School Shooting

We said never again, but we let Santa Fe, Annapolis, Pittsburgh, Thousand Oaks, Aurora, Highlands Ranch, Virginia Beach, El Paso, and Dayton become the victims of horrific shootings.

I feel very sorry for those victims when their lives are tragically taken in this very scary event.

The worst part is some of the students died. Things like this are why I hate going to school.

This is definitely the worst thing that has happened because I was in this when it happened.

2 Flu Outbreak

80,00 people over 17 people. The shooting was horrible but babies, children, parents died over the flu outbreak, 80 people, is anyone not realizing that's worse then the 17 people school shooting

The flu lowered my dads already unhealthy immune system, then he caught pneumonia. Which killed him.

Apparently a shooting that killed 17 people is worst than a flu outbreak that killed 80,000 people

This is just sad.

3 People Started Eating Tide Pods

At first when I saw this on oh shiitake mushrooms I thought it was just a skit that that lee, the dad of the channel was pretending to eat it the video was pretend, but they deleted that video an hour later, I thought they just did it as a skit, then relized it was a trend about a few days later, not sure why people thought it was a good idea to eat tide pods I wouldn't of done it

1,350 people died in Indonesia due to tsunami

The stench of ignorance is causing me to walk away from the list...

The guy who made this is smart because he killed all the stupid people

Sometimes people can be so stupid.

4 Xxxtentacion Shot to Death

He should of never died he was a great person, a great rapper, and someone was so jealous they had to shoot him,that's just terrible. His music just was what I needed and he was amazing and because of those people x can't make music anymore. You will always be remembered. I LOVE YOU XXX!

Never should have died, deserved to live and continue saving people, but he's still doing it regardless of what happened. Even with the media posting cut-up audio recordings to damage him and make money off someone who was brutally murdered, is still doing great. Man went from 11mil on YT to 14mil in 3 months. Beat BIG on the 200.. He has talent, even being gone. Thanks man. LLJ | RIPX

Bye X, We'll miss you! We hope that you had a good life, your singing was great as usual, nice voice. We hope that you're in heaven and the one who killed you will BE IN HELL!

Devastating moment we lost the front runner of this Gen and a passionate mind, FL will never feel the same.

5 Florida Bridge Collapse

I think they build the bridge too fast that it collapsed

May all those affected be prayed and helped.

6 Bomb Cyclone

I experienced two nor’easters in January I think. For the first one, I think it was a Friday, I was in the van that took me to school (when I lived in my grandmother’s house for a year). And the ride was about five hours long. We also had to ride with two mean kids. We left at about 4 after a long wait and arrived at about 9 something. I don’t remember the second one very well, but I’m not sure if it was about as bad as the first one.

Don't give supervillains ideas.

Wait I had no idea. I clicked it

An over dramatic term for a nor’easter that was the coldest in 4 years.

7 Death of Avicii

This was sad when this happened, I do have 3 favorite avicii songs, levels, wake me up, and hey brother, levels was the first avicii song I heard in april 2013 when my school did the avicii levels dance, at first I didn't like avicii levels, then 1 year later it became one of my favorite songs, first was levels, then wake me up about 2 weeks later, then hey brother about a year later

He died at 28 from suicide with a bottle.


Why did he have to commit suicide?

Not only did a great DJ die, but I also got in huge trouble for an assignment I didn’t complete. Sorry for being selfish. I also think I heard that Avicii’s suicide was accidental.

8 Alberta Spring Flooding

My town had some flooding in april because of too much snow

Hope everyone’s helped in this travesty.

I have family members in Alberta. :( (They’re okay though thankfully)

9 Death of Stephen Hawking

He isn’t suffering anymore from the ALS. And while I know he didn’t believe in god or heaven, I hope he found what it was he was truly looking for in the end.


And then Hawking's came out from Albert Einstein's birthday cake.

Stephen had a good life though he was handicapped.


This guy was a legendary scientist

10 People Discovered Chained to Their Beds in California

Kids. Kids were found malnourished and chained.

Who would do such a horrible thing to innocent people?

Wow the people who did it should be dead.

Torture. Torture is a horrible thing.

The Contenders

11 Death of Stephen Hillenburg

Stephen Hillenburg Died of ALS at 57. He was the creator of SpongeBob. He will never be forgotten and has made a huge impact in the world of television and entertainment. His legacy will be remembered. - R.I.P. - SpongeBobFan

The creator of SpongeBob SquarePants, Stephen Hillenburg, has died on November 27th at 57 from ALS.

We knew since his diagnosis he wouldn’t live much longer, but he died so suddenly.
He will never be forgotten.

SpongeBob was getting better after the 2nd movie since his return, but now that he’s dead, it’s going back downhill and is expected to end, putting Nickelodeon out of business.

The end of an era.

Never have I cried so much in my life. Forget Stephen Hawking, Aretha Franklin, John McCain, Burt Reynolds, and even Stan Lee. This is the real deal of deaths. R.I.P.

The darkest day for Nickelodeon. He was the king of Nickelodeon. The creator of SpongeBob SquarePants. Never forget. R.I.P. Stephen Hillenburg 1961-2018 - PowerRangerFan

12 12 Boys Trapped in Cave in Thailand

In Thailand, a soccer team including 12 boys and the coach were trapped in a cave 2 1/2 miles long.
They were inside it for 18 days and went without food or clean water for the 1st 10 days.
The coach gave them food, and so did the Navy Seals.

Fortunately, they were freed after 18 days from a grueling 3 day rescue, though unfortunately one of the divers died during the mission.

They were all found! That’s the good thing! The bad thing is a diver who drowned to save them. Rip diver.

That was scary as hell

13 Kabul Suicide Bombings

Suicide is a terrible thing. It should never happen again I should know because my dad did not die from suicide but, he did die from a heart attack.

Shamefully horrible.

14 2 Men Trapped in Flooding Elevator in Basement in Toronto

That's terrible

15 Southern California Mudslides

Our prayers go to these people affected by this disaster.

16 Death of Billy Graham

One of the few modern men to literally change the world peacefully

17 False Alarm of Hawaiian Missile Threat

A nightmare for our world.

I loved that day

This was scary

18 Alabama Mall Shooting

People were hurt in a shooting at a mall in Alabama, luckily only the gunman was killed.
It happened on Black Friday.

19 Mt. Kilauea Eruption

No deaths have been recorded, but still, today is May 22, 2018, and the volcano started erupting around May 2 or 3. And it shows no signs of stopping. Pretty bad

20 Toronto Shooting

I thought Canada was safe

21 6ix9ine Disses Ludacris
22 Marvel Creator Stan Lee Died

I am so disappointed that this has happened. I mean, he has created so many iconic heros. He is a great guy and sadly I’ve never met him. I wish I had. It would have been such an honor. But now he’s gone. I knew this day would come, but not this quickly. Lots of kids are happy today because of no school. But this happened? No way. I bet lots of people might have noticed this iconic persons death, but I have. And I felt really sad. RIP Stan Lee Dec. 28- Nov. 12, 2018

Though he was 95.
He created the Marvel franchise, including Spider-Man, the Incredible Hulk, Superman, and the Avengers.
And it all started with comic books.
He worked hard on everything, and that’s how he became who he became.
Though he got accused for sexual misconduct allegations, he will never be forgotten.

Although this was very sad. He was 95. So this would have happened this year or next year or some time soon either way.

I will never be able to watch another Marvel movie without remembering him.

23 Hurricane Florence

It was once a category 4 hurricane, then weakened into a 2, and now it's a 1.
It made landfall, and is causing widespread flooding and damage.
53 people have been killed.
Our prayers go to everyone there, the news reporters are putting their lives on the line for us to witness and get a clear idea of this storm.

Do I need to explain here?

24 Government Shutdown

Two in one year and one of them is lasting into 2019
