Worst Years In History

The Top Ten
1 1939

For me: (I had trouble behaving as a kid)
2005: I was first born. I was an extremely loud and crazy baby that would constantly scream and cry!
2006: Like 2005, but somewhat better.
2007: Good year. I was well behaved and I was happy.
2008: I became miserable this year and my behavior started to get bad.
2009-2013: My behavior was out of control. I became even more miserable. I was happy a lot of times throughout these years though. Rough years.
2014: My behavior improved a lot and it was a good year overall.
2015: Not much special happened this year, but still good.
2016: Some cool stuff happened. Better than the previous year. This year had my Halloween and Thanksgiving.
2017: Best year in my life so far. My behavior significantly improved, I graduated elementary school, and had a fun summer.
2018: Fun year where I did a lot of awesome things and I turned 13. What sucked about this year was that my Dad broke up with his girlfriend and my Uncle Tom passed ...more

I do not understand why people think 2013 and 2014 are the worst years in history because music, movies, and video games sucked when there were years with World Wars that killed millions of people. In reality, 1939 and 1941 were the worst years in history because they involved the deaths of millions of people killed from violence, wars, and camps. I do not remember hearing about millions of people killed in World Wars or concentration camps in 2013 or 2014.

And also, I like songs like Happy, Blurred Lines, and Counting Stars. Years like 2013 or 2014 may have sucked pop culture wise (although I have found some songs from those years to be good), but 1939 and 1941 were indeed the worst with many innocent lives taken away from wars. - anonygirl

So 2016 was the world year ever because celebrities died and democracy took course? nonsense... 1939 signified the beginning of a brutal war that took millions of lives and led course to even more divisions, deaths and tortures in the long term aka a divided Berlin. If you can even compare 2016 to a year that spawned the genocide and mass murdering of millions of innocent men, women and children, you really need to grow up and maybe pick up a book rather than forming your opinion on the basis of a buzzfeed article

For me:

1999: That was the year that I was born

2000-2005: Great!

2006-2008: Best yearz of my life (Nothing Happened)

2009: Sucks

2010: Was Bad too

2011: It was okay! (nothing special)

2012: Again, it was okay! (Nothing special for me)

2013: HORRIBLE, Horrible, horrible year for me! Where do I begin? I was forced to get braces, I had a very crappy school year, The teachers were very mean back then, Frozen was released then, my life got completely screwed up, I was introuced to violent behaviors, PLUS, CRINGEWORTHY FANBASES! I was glad that I left the GoAnimate community to move on to Flash Animation.

2014: Very bad, but improved later on

2015: Meh, it was okay!

2016-present: Awful!

2 1350

It's ridiculous that all these horrible years with almost everything terrible about them, plagues and death and wars and other bad things, are below 2020 and 2016. Okay, 2020 was when Covid got really bad. But still, worse than most of the other years on here? No, actually. If we had been alive for all these years, we would probably have 2020 in the low forties. But since we modern folks have been around for 2020, and it was not very enjoyable, 2nd place, here we come! And 2016? Okay, people. 2016 was actually one of the best years of all time. Life in the 21st century is the best of all time, because people live longer, happier, healthier, and safer. Oh, Zika and "youtube declining" is the reason 2016 deserves to be the THIRD WORST YEAR IN HISTORY. Here, let me put it into perspective for you. Zika has killed 20 people. The Bubonic plague killed 200 million people. Yessir, Zika is much worse, because 20 deaths is much worse than 200 000 000! For every death from zika, ten million ...more

This year was certainly the worst year in history, it was the height of the most deadly disease in history, the Black Death. By the start of 1350 tens of millions of people had already died in just three years from the Black Death but the Black Death continued and didn't start slowing down in it's killing rates until 1351. Overall between 1939-1945 in a population stagnating world about 1% (21 million a year) of the world's population died a single year during the Second World War. The Black Death in the period from 1347-1351 which is less than the 6 years of the World War II, killed half of Europe's population, over a quarter of the world's population that was alive in 1346 died during the years 1347-1351, greatly reduced the world population which the Second World War failed to do. It took 200 years for world population levels to get back to pre-Black Death levels. So not only was the Black Death far more deadly than the Second World War or any wars in history but it was also the ...more

How is this below 2016? In 1350, the Black Death peaked to its highest and wiped out tens of millions of people. How are the deaths of celebs and a US election worse than the the peak of the worst pandemic in history? In my personal opinion, 2016 was a better year than 1350, even though I didn't live in 1350.

This is way above 2016 and 2020 on the list. Even though 2020 had the coronavirus, 1350 had the bubonic plague. Oh, and the bubonic plague happened between 1346 until 1353.

3 2020 2020 (MMXX) was a leap year starting on Wednesday of the Gregorian calendar, the 20th year of the third millennium, the 20th year of the 21st century, and the 1st year of the 2020s.

2005: born
2006 - 2009: can't remember
2010: Pretty bad. 3/10
2011: Horrible. I can't even explain why I hate this year. 1.6/10
2012: A little more decent. 5.7/10
2013: Great year. Lots of good stuff happened. 9/10
2014: Same as 2013. 9/10
2015: Same as 2013 and 2014. 9/10
2016: Bad. YouTube got bad, CN got bad, Nick got WORSE, Trump got elected, etc. 2/10
2017: Pretty good. 8/10
2018: Best year ever! I had lots of fun this year and not one bad little thing affected it. 10/10
2019: Same as 2013, 2014, and 2018. 9.9/10
2020: Horrible. Bad things happened here. 1.3/10
2021: WORST YEAR! I thought 2020 was bad but god, this takes the cake. My sister died from COVID, my grandma died from a earthquake, Flash stopped being supported, Myanmar had a military coup, and more horrible things are happening. Not one good thing happened this year. -10/10

December 21, 2020: The House and Senate pass a $900 billion Covid-19 relief bill.
NFL linebacker and defensive end Kevin Greene died at 58 years old.
December 22, 2020: President Trump says that he might not sign the $900 billion relief bill, which was passed by both the House and Senate. He also calls for Congress to amend the bill and increase stimulus checks to Americans earning under $75,000 per year from $600 to $2,000. House Speaker Pelosi agrees to work with Congress to increase the payout amount.
December 23, 2020: Three police officers are killed and a fourth wounded after they responded to a domestic violence incident in Saint-Just, France. The gunman, who set his house on fire, is later found dead. The gunman's partner was rescued.
December 24, 2020: Worldwide Covid-19 surpasses 79.1 million cases and 1.73 million deaths!

2020 has been the second worst year of my life, 2007 was absolute hell for me. The obvious reason why this year has been so bleak for everybody is because of the Novel Coronavirus Pandemic which swept the world at unprecedented speed, causing 71 million infections and 1 million deaths. This year started out wonderful because I found a job at a retirement home but in March, I had to quit my job at the retirement home due to pandemic concerns. Its not easy for me to find a job because I have mild autism, I hope you can be understanding. I agree with Prime Minister Justin Trudeau's opinion: "We are living in an unprecedented global pandemic, that really sucks! Nobody wanted 2020 to turn out this way". All of the other terrible news that circulated airwaves such as the deaths of Kobe Bryant and George Floyd, Australian Bush Fires, American-Iran rivalries, Lebanon explosions made 2020 unbearable. Also, on the family side, problems related to health, stress, broken hardwood flooring, makes ...more

I know, that 2020 is not to compare with yeas like 1939-45 or the Black Death phase. Even considering the actual Corona pandemic, the hurricane season, the actual wave of terrorist attacks in Mid-Europe, the US Election...
BUT for my family and me, this year has been an absolute plague and nightmare so far, even with the "Big C" put aside. Since February we go through, like, everything UNLUCKY and BAD that could happen to us: Expensive House/Car accidents and repairs, illnesses (especially Corona in te past few weeks, yes), relatives' deaths, I could extend the list even far further. I thought 2019 was bad, but last year had a stunning difference to 2020: there were breaks in between to take a breath for a week or two.
2020 gives my fam and me bad news like every other day and it is stressful to no end. And the worst thing: There are still almost 2 months to go. I really want to skip them actually...


4 2016 2016 (MMXVI) was a leap year starting on Friday of the Gregorian calendar, the 2016th year of the Common Era (CE) and Anno Domini (AD) designations, the 16th year of the 3rd millennium, the 16th year of the 21st century, and the 7th year of the 2010s decade.

Awful year. The worst year of my life until 2020 showed up. Let’s see, had to say goodbye to my friends and went to a terrible middle school. Got bullied, classes were boring. And the election the destroyed the entire year for me. Just not enjoyable. Last few days of 2016 were good since I moved out of my old neighborhood.

All these comments talking about how "people who are voting for years because of terrible music/media" are probably way before my time, as this and 2020 are the only recent years in the top 10. And while I agree years where war broke out should definitely be above them, 2016 was pretty terrible in its own right.

The outbreak of Zika Virus & microcephaly plagued Brazil and many other countries, ISIS & Middle-Eastern terrorism were at an all-time high, tons of bombings and shootings in the U.S. and Europe, politicial tensions in the U.S. were UNBEARABLE (especially since Trump got elected, which caused an uproar that's still ongoing 4 YEARS LATER!), a lot of great people died (Prince, David Bowie, Muhammad Ali, Carrie Fisher, to name a few), the opioid crisis was at its worst, the refugee crisis was at its worst, and a lot of other things that I haven't mentioned. And to top it all off...

The music was really bad, and YouTube started declining HARD (aka my two biggest ...more

In 2016, my father died, Donald Trump (which many people call a modern-day Hitler) got elected as president, the Zika Virus spread like wildfire and causing severe birth defects and even deaths in infants, so many celebrities died (David Bowie, Prince, Christina Grimmie, Muhammad Ali, Gene Wilder, Patty Duke, Alan Rickman, etc.), an alligator killed an innocent 2-year-old, anti-Trump protests damaged other people's property and even killed innocent people who could have been Clinton supporters themselves, someone shot and killed 49 people at a night club in Orlando, a truck plowed into a party in Nice, France, and killed 84 people (a lot of them children), 32 people died in an airport in Brussels, Belgium, DisneyAnime1234 died, and too many innocent police officers got killed in the line of duty. I'd rather live in 2009 than 2016, and that is saying something because 2009 sucked. That is how I feel about 2016.

Oh man, where do I begin?

Well lets start with the Zika Virus. It spread all over the place in South America and some parts of the world. I feel bad for everyone who suffered through that. Whats scary is that it's still spreading, and it affected Florida and parts of Mexico. Hopefully it won't get TOO bad.

Next, lets talk about the attacks that occurred in a couple cities in Europe, starting with Brussels. On March 22 during the year, a couple places in the city were brutally bombed. 35 people were killed, and more than 300 were injured. That's pretty sad. A few months later, in Nice, France, a truck drove into a crowd celebrating Bastille Day. 86 people were killed, and 434 were hurt. Both of those we're terrorist attacks.

Then there's Hurricane Matthew, which did a ton of damage to Haiti, Jamaica, the Dominican Republic, Cuba, The Bahamas, and the Southeastern coast of the United States. Almost 900 people lost their lives, and many people's houses and hometowns ...more

5 1914

That year 1914 was when Archduke Franz Ferdinand and his wife was shot dead. It triggered the event of WWI. Tragically, millions of soldiers from both Allied Powers and Central Powers killed each other. The Great War ended in 1918.

Fast forward to the year 2020, over 2 million people died from the infectious Covid 19 disease. The pandemic ruined everything else. That was a terrible year.

The First Scariest Logo Came Out. It's Called OZ Film Company. And World War Started. If you don't Know What that Logo Is, I Will Explain. Basically It's A Woman With A Floating Head Just Looking Around And Looking Creepy. She Has A Oz Crown. It Has Creepy Violin Music In The Color Version. They Have Colors Like Red, Yellow, Green, Blue, Purple etc. I Am 12, Not 106+
I Wouldn't Say This is the Worst but This Scarier Than 666. Or Scary As 666. If You Are Curious About This Logo I Recommend Not Checking It out unless You're Brave.
Have A Nice Day 3/17/21

People hate the new years because of Bad music/shows like GROW UP. This year started one of the worst wars in history other then WW2.

World War 1 and the Spanish Flu outbreak occurred and those are the worst things headlining this year. There are bad things around the world that were happening in this time. People are saying 2020 is the worst year ever. I think and hope that 1914 still holds the title of the worst year in history by the end of 2020.

6 1941

Despite 1939 (the start of the Phony War) currently ranking #1, 1941 marks the beginning of the Jew Genocide, with the nazis ordering children shot, rapidly escalating executions and using Zyklon B for the first time.

Pearl Harbour happened too, which led America to join on both fronts, and Operation Barbarossa got the USSR into the Allies' side until the nazis were gone. This was a year when most of continental Europe was in the hand of fascists and/or literal nazis.

This year reminds us why we must vigorously oppose those who sow hatred and division, for the good of all Humankind!

World War II raging, attack on Pearl Harbour and probably the worst year of the war. How is 2016 higher than this? Please vote for 1941 so it exceeds 2016

Is this a horrible joke? World War ll is number 6 due to terrible pop music and celebrities? God, people have no idea how fortunate mordern day people are! I don't care if kids nowadays are reckoned as immature and selfish, I'm not in a camp! Vote this up, because 2014 doesn't cut it as the worst year in history!

Why isn't this #1? Hello? The Holocaust happened. Which was a brutal event. 6 million innocent Jews life's where gone. How could this compare with 2013 - present?

7 2001

"Have you forgotten,
how it felt that day,
to see your whole land under fire, and her people blown away,
Have you forgotten,
when those towers fell,
with people still inside,
going through a living hell".

For those who don't know, look up the song.
Disclaimer: I might have a different word in above. Please correct me if I'm wrong.

Good things: Spirited Away, Daft Punk's Discovery, Tenacious D's first album, Sonic Adventure 2, Monsters Inc, the golden age of SpongeBob.
Bad things: 9/11, the end of the 90s, Freddy Got Fingered, George Bush gets sworn in as president, the downfall of The Simpsons.

I might have been born this year, which is a bad thing to everyone I know (everyone hates me), but I do know a lot about the year:
Michelle Branch (perosnally)
Anime takeover
Nickelodeon starts to get bad (though they've gotten worse over the years)
Freddy got Fingered
Glitter (the film, in case you're confused. )
The 90's end. I never saw the 90's, but from what I've heard, they're awesome, even though I would much rather be stuck in the present forever than in the 90's forever.

I was 15 years old back then. Let me tell you I was having so much fun that year. I was on the honor roll in school that year and got a great school award, I went to my aunt's wedding, me and my family went on vacation to Hawaii, me and my 10 friends went to the city's summer carnival, and my dad took me to his auto mechanical place that he owns. I even got to fix some of the cars a little! It was a lot of fun until 9/11 came... Everything in my life collapsed. My grandma was involved in the 9/11 attacks she was lucky she survived but she was very scared and almost fainted. My dad got killed in his car by getting smashed by a drunk truck driver, my German shepherd who was with me since preschool got put down, my 18 year old brother who was doing gang violence with his friends got sent to jail and thrown out of my house, my mom was struggling to keep her diner opened, one of my closest friends since Kindergarten betrayed me, I was all alone on Halloween none of my friends wanted to ...more

8 536

How is this worse than 2020 and 2016? Don't get me wrong, 2020 was a terrible year but now come it's worse than 536? The year in which millions starved to death because of a volcanic eruption in Iceland causing sub zero temperatures the and bubonic plague(the deadliest pandemic on Earth) spreading like a wildfire. This needs to be in the Top 3 asap.

To all the spoiled brats in the comments saying 2016 is the worst years of all time just because of getting detention or something, you have no right to say it’s the worst year of all time. Don’t get me wrong, 2020 was awful, and you could say it was the worst year in YOUR LIFE, but not of all time, unless you know what it’s like to lay in bed with the plague killing you slowly and painfully, not having summer and having the sun covered up by ash for 18 months, dying in a huge volcanic eruption, having a seemingly everlasting famine with no food or water whatsoever, and going outside to find out it’s -78 degrees outside, then you can’t say ANY of the years in the 70’s-2010’s are the worst years of all time.

This year was the year that many scientists and historians proved to be the worst year in recorded history. A volcano in Iceland erupted, which blocked the sun for 18 months. This caused crops to fail, creating mass starvation.

The term ‘worst year ever’ is thrown around quite a bit these days, usually online for reasons like: “I was disappointed in the latest Total Drama episode.” However, scientists and historians prove that this year, 536 A.D., is the worst year ever. After a volcanic eruption in Iceland erupted, blocking the sun for a year and a half, causing famine. The Yersinia plague was also there, making it even worse, which is some of the reasons why historians think it’s the worst. Plus, just look at the picture.

9 1929

Lol, why is it so high? There were much worse economic crises. For example, compared to the fall of the Soviet Union, this depression was just a joke.

Unless you guys know what it's like to live on the streets with your family and all your friends, flat broke, cold, starving, suffering from anemia, pneumonia, and a whole assortment of other ailments, and with absolutely NO chance of seeing a paycheck for at least another few years, you have no right to say that ANY year in modern history is worse than 1929. It's called the "Great Depression" for a reason. Enough said.

This should be #2 due to the Great Depression, which caused people to suffer terribly. I cannot imagine how people would deal with this calamity today, and we came awfully close in 2008. Luckily the economy recovered once it got very bad. Seriously, I mean people don;t know what it was like for the people back in this year, endless human suffering.

The depression began, some people might say it's decent due to the rise in popularity of Mickey Mouse and the foundation of the Looney Tunes, but it's a depression alright.

10 1347

If I travelled here don’t expect to see me again. The plague was deadly many died on the same day they fell ill, about 20% of the population died because of the Black Death

This was when the Black Death spread like wildfire throughout Europe. It was very horrid. Bodies were piling up in the streets, and all people thought about was death.

Plague. No real medicine, no sanitation, no help for survivors except for some handouts from monasteries.

The world's most devastating pandemic happened lasting only 4 years, killing a third of Europe's population.

11 2014

People are being so rude to others who are being serious about their personal life on this list! I am sick of it! So rude! What if their personal lives were serious?!

This year was the worst of my personal life. Early on I had a depression for three weeks because I felt like none of my friends liked me anymore. Even after I recovered it felt like my friendships had fizzled out, and I was often being left out. It was miserable. Also, I was still in secondary school and I got underwhelming grades, mainly C's, D's and E's. The only above C I got was an A in Maths.

Things did get better towards the end when I actually managed to get into college, and a fresh start helped me feel less lonely, but the year was just not good overall. 2013 wasn't much better either, but the depression I went through in 2014 makes it the worst year of my life. The best year would be 2012.

You've got to be kidding me! How is this year considered to be the worst year history!? "Oh it was because of terrible music and the celebrities like Robin Williams died, and Frozen was so popular during this year, and T.V. shows were terrible, and.." Grow up! Entertainment and celebrities passing away doesn't make this year the worst year ever. There are much worse years in history. There's 1939, where the Holocaust began, there's 65 million because where the Dinosaurs got extinct, there's 2001 where 9/11 took place, the list goes on. The 21st century as a whole doesn't really stand out as extreme. The exception being 9/11, but that was about it. Stop claiming that entertainment is the most precious thing in the world, because it's not! The only thing that stood out this year was Ebola, but even with that, it wasn't a disaster that affected the entire world. All you care about is the Als Ice Bucket challenge, T.V. shows, music, etc. that doesn't matter.

This was easily the worst year of my life - and probably a lot of others too. The ISIS attacks started off, Russia tried to take Crimea and lots of famous people died. The music was dire and sport, other than the world cup, was boring! Personally, it gets even worse because I was getting bullied at school, I had an awful teacher and there was an extension on my family's house, meaning we were living in a building site with two rooms to go in. Also, in late December, my Nan had a heart attack and my mum a car crash (she wasn't hurt). This really was an awful year, looking back at it. But all we can do now is enjoy 2016! :-)

12 1933

Seriously this list is awful. All the spoiled kids are voting for newer years just because of their personal life. Yet the holocaust beginning is only 14

That was during the great depression. 4 years after the stock market crash of '29, America faced poverty.

The Nazis rose to power and started attacking Austrians. The holocaust began it was horrible all the memoirs about it.

Oh damn! This year the Holocaust started. I should have voted for this instead!

2018: good, I enjoyed that year except for February and the summer 6/10
2019: fine, it's has been a good and bad year 5/10

We have seen many events happen in 2013, some good moments, some embarrassing moments, some that are controversial and more, movies are not so different these days, there are the ones that are often praised for it to be forever remembered and there are the ones that people raged over just for it's existence, but when it comes to animated films however, people might remember 2013 as one of the WORST YEARS FOR ANIMATION! Seriously! There were only 2 great animated films that year while the other good ones were just OK and the bad ones ended up being REALLY BAD!

2013: Why This Year Sucks

It is not a surprise to see that The Sony PlayStation Defined the 5th Gen of Games. But how Bout The Ps2? It's Story is Even BIGGER. It was The Best invention That The World ever got.

But then, 2012 was the fate of the Ps2 in JPN. And then, Guess What Happened?

It got Discontinued in 2013 Worldwide. That made it kinda sad. The Ps2 Is the Gaming Triton. However I thought it could get better. But guess WHAT?

It Didn't get better. I saw annoying songs, Repeating Their Stupid Chorus On 96.1 and 99.7, And Then I wanted to find a pillow and slap myself 100 Times With it. Sure, There Were Good things on the radio like Counting Stars And Sail, But otherwise I was in radio hell 100.7.

And Then Guess What...
THEY SHUT DOWN TOONTOWN ONLINE! The best MMORPG Of All Time, Got Recently Shuttered By Disney. Disney, If you Guys Don't Start Acting Like the old Disney, Then I Will Scream Bloody Murder!

And Then It Got Worse YET ...more

14 1945

All these retarded people who put 2013 and 14 higher than this need to get punched in the face a couple times until they realize what actually happened in history and not in media.

Still the worst because people had to recover from the ending of the war and the damage left behind. Plus the Cold War started afterwards, the Holocaust prisoners contracted horrible diseases before liberation, and everything was in ruin. So while the war ended, the world was in huge disarray.

It was actually good. WWII Ended. Japan Surrendered To the United States after getting bombed.

Not as bad as 1914, 1941, and 1939 because the war ended, but it was till pretty tough that Japan got bombed.

15 1918

The year that the Spanish flu occurred.

The World War ended then though.

16 2015

I will never stop calling it a bad year. Nothing good happened at all and we are still suffering from what this year has caused. It is truly one of the worst things ever, and is a true contender for an objectively bad year. It should have never happened!

I’m calling it, had that year never existed, the world would be in a far, FAR better state. This monstrosity of a year never should have had happened. It just enrages me thinking about it. So much bad happened in the world, interenet and people that year, but NOTHING good happened. The only good that happened were a few personal small things. Looking at it, it seems almost everyone in my country also thinks it’s a beyond atrociously dismal year and that’s a good thing. I consider this to be one of the worst things ever, let alone years.

Both personal and political, 2015 takes everything that was good about the years prior and craps all over it. My family has fallen into shambles since early in the year, and the stress was only exacerbated by all the political tension, mass shootings, and racial/gender divide that has been happening in the months after that, not to mention people being overly offended even in the wake of NON-issues. There is no real way at this point that 2016 can just be a reset button because the damage that's been done will be hard to undo. Most of the damage that 2015 has done will take a long time to be remedied.

This year was just incredibly bad, forgettable, and there is nothing good whatsoever about it. I will bet you all that by 2022 everyone is going to forget that year ever happened and treat it as just another year that happened. Well that’s how I see that year anyway.

I’m also very glad I deleted that loathsome comment I made several years back that was somehow my most popular comment ever. I apologise to anybody who had to see that offenseivw comment.

But back on topic, that year was simply embarassing. Not just to me but to pretty much everyone with common sense.

17 2018 2018 (MMXVIII) is a common year starting on Monday of the Gregorian calendar, the 2018th year of the Common Era (CE), the 9th year of the 2010s decade, the 18th year of the 21st century, and the 18th year of the 3rd millennium.

An unforgivable year for me. Where do I start, second half of 7th grade, first half of 8th grade sucked. I didn’t enjoy it at all. Was so boring. Fornite took over the world and it was everywhere and there was a lack of variety. Also we lost a lot of people in 2018. Not to mention one of the most cringe videos YouTube has ever made.

Worst year in my whole life. It all started when the penguins got eliminated by the Capitals. Then they would make the cup. My friend died on June 4th. My friend was one of the best people you could ever meet. So fun to be around and a really good person. I grieved for 3 weeks about it. A few days later, The capitals and the EVIL 8 won the cup and took over the world. My dog died in September. November 6th was one of my friend's birthdays. It was literal HELL from the start. The WORST day in my life and my friend had the worst birthday ever. Me and my friend were demoralized, degraded, and torn apart that day leaving us sad and depressed. Steelers eliminated from the playoffs and ravens get in. Overall, 2018 has been a living HELL for me and everyone that I care about. Can't wait for the year to end and have a fresh start.

I had to move 3 times that year. We had move into my grandmothers house because the bill was wack, then my drunk uncle was antagonizing us so we moved into a apartment but the apartment was awful because it only had 1 bathroom and it’s was super small. Then my mom got her money raised up and bought us a house back in our hometown and we moved back there to a house from 1985 and moved in there and the worst part. We moved into that house in December. In June we had to move out of our house into my grandmas. Then we moved out in July. Then we moved into our new house in December. Which means I lives in 4 places in one year.

People are already whining that this year is horrible. I mean, we had the shooting at Stoneman Douglas High School, the mudslides in Southern California, and now the death of Stephen Hawking.
But if you focus on every bad thing, then EVERY year is the worst year ever. No offense, but Hawking's death was just one guy. The same is true of any celebrity death. America's gun problem is actually so bad that one shooting doesn't cut it as the worst year ever (there were actually worse shootings, just think of Las Vegas or Orlando). There will always be natural disasters until the world ends. And, there were years with PLAGUES and WORLD WARS, so please stop.

18 2009

The years I that I hated the most (other than earlier years with wars like 1939 and 1941) were 2001, 2009, 2012 (only for my personal life), and 2016. I was only 10 at the time, but I still remember it like it happened yesterday. That year sucked because of the swine flu epidemic, Justin Bieber's music was at his worst, lots of beloved celebrities died (in 2016 as well), terrible economy, I moved that year and had to say goodbye to my friends and family, Oscar Grant getting killed by police, I was frequently sent to the principal's office for no reason, Nickelodeon got rid of its orange slime, analog T.V. was no longer available to use (which is especially bad for low income families who could not afford to pay cable bills), Noggin went away, I was bullied, SpongeBob was at his worst, and many other reasons.

This is the year EVERYTHING went to hell. The credit crunch, stock market crash, the recession, more and more celebrities dying, the swine flu scare, the Daily Mail on the rise with it's "health" addicts, the music industry destroyed - nowadays they only care about looks and money, not heart and soul! Hollywood falling on it's knees just EVERYTHING about this year,was CRAP! Today we are still suffering from what happened in 2009! If I had a time machine, I would erase everything about 2009-2016 and go back to the 80s and 90s, even the early 00s, because the only really bad thing I remember about 2001 was 9/11. 2009-now can go buried in a gavr and never seen again!

2009 was awful. For me, it was the worst year of my life. I was in the hospital for nearly a month, I got sick a lot, it was cloudy and gloomy just about every day, and songs got stuck in my head for hours and hours every single day, I had literally no friends, my teachers sucked, my Phillies lost the world series, and so much more! I was only 7 years old, but it was definitely the most depressing time of my life. I WAS SO HAPPY WHEN 2010 CAME!

I hope the 2020s would bring back all the 1980s, 1990s, and 2000s nostalligic things, but I don't know yet. The final good year for me was 2012, January and February of 2013 was okay, but everything started to suck in March 2013, because I got braces that month and it sucked.
The 1970s, 1980s, 1990s, and the 2000s were awesome! Although a lot of people hated (2005-2009), especially 2006, 2007, and 2008. It didn't bother me very much, but 2006 and 2007 were AMAZING! 2008 was okay, but The Diabeities diagnosis sucked badly, other than that, 2008 was a trillion thousand times better than 2009, 2009 was terrible though.

19 65,000,000 B.C.

To be honest, this era was the second worst year in non-human history, next to 252,000,000 BCE which that era the extinction of EVERYTHING. These two are probably million times worse than 1939 (deadliest war) and 1347 (Black Death)

A comet hit Earth, and released ejecta beyond the atmosphere and triggered the strongest earthquakes and biggest tsunami ever, miles tall, and the Earth burned shortly after from fires and sulfuric acid rain.
Plus, Most of the ozone layer was destroyed, causing UV radiation to bathe our planet, and give animals cancer.
Mega volcanic eruptions happened on the opposite side of the Earth from the impact zone, and poisoned the planet.
Dust was released from the impact and covered the whole Earth and blocked out all sunlight, putting the world in total darkness.
Then it cooled down way below freezing and caused nuclear winter, putting plants and many lifeforms, including the Dinosaurs to extinction.

I'm a 69 million year old Megalosaurus this was the worst years of the life dinosaurs went extinct and my pet dirt died :( however me and my family including 35 brothers and 12 sisters and 200 cousins managed to survive including my Dad and his 17 girlfriends worst part I was stuck with my dad and his 17 girlfriends under a boulder in a 1234 metre cave and at the very bottom yep it was awkward..

Think about though. The dinosaurs had died because it was their time. I agree it is sad but without the extinction I would not be typing this and no one would be here.

20 2017 2017 (MMXVII) was a common year starting on Sunday of the Gregorian calendar, the 2017th year of the Common Era (CE) and Anno Domini (AD) designations, the 17th year of the 3rd millennium, the 17th year of the 21st century, and the 8th year of the 2010s decade.

Even though 2020 was the most abysmal year with the Covid-19 pandemic, 2017 is a bad year. 2017 had a few reasons why. Here's the list:

Ariana Grande bombing
Tom Petty death
Jeremy Christian stabs 2 guys dead
Stephen Paddock shot dozens of people dead in Las Vegas, Nevada

Now let's get this out of the way. There is NO WAY that the 2010's are worse than years during WWII and the Black Plague. That said, I can't deny 2017 is no better than 2016. There continues to be celebrity deaths, political tensions are as heated and controversial as ever, protests continue to retain a violent streak, the hurricane season this year had probably some of the worst hurricanes like Harvey, Irma, and Jose since Katrina to the point that Irma was confirmed to have actually been more powerful than Katrina, burglars around Florida looted many victims' belongings during the aftermath of Irma, and as of now, the 2017 Las Vegas Strip shooting is now officially the deadliest mass shooting carried out by a single gunman in U.S. history since the 2016 Orlando nightclub shooting. I probably missed a lot more disastrous events, but this is just a few events that show how much of how 2017 is already a bad year.

I think why some consider modern years like 2017 and 2016 even close to being as bad as the 40s is not because of movies and pop culture, but because we've come to the depressing realization that we are in THE FUTURE. Which means deforestation and cutting down every tree, global warming making the world hotter by the minute, frightening technology like the htc vive, the broken down economy and terrorists who are worse than ever spreading there victims to big cities like London, you can't go anywhere like a concert or a theme park without having to go through metal detectors and heavy surveillance, that's not how it used to be. We're in the future and that means we are closer to the world pretty much collapsing over itself.

2017 was the worst year of my life! Reasons why..

1. My dog died (The Worst Part of 2017)

2. I had to switch buses

3. Hurricane Harvey

4. My sister sprang her knee

5. There were WAY too many shootings ALL OVER THE WORLD!

6. So many good celebrities died (like Don Rickles)

7. Paramount Pictures' dumb decisions about the box office bombs

8. My family members got into a fight

9. Trump being president

10. My cat had surgery

11. The Emoji Movie

12. My bus drivers were late during May and June, so I got to school late during these times

I'm SO GLAD 2017 is over! I never want a year like this again! Let's not forget Paramount has been making constant box office bombs in 2017 also!

So far.. 2018 is much better

21 2008

2008 marked the worst year for the global economy due to the Financial Crisis that destroyed the prosperity of every country in the world. Businesses were affected, closed down which was the impact whereas Federal Banks struggled to cooperate with the scarce resources. The Bush Administration still had something up with their sleeves and they were the reason why it happened. I believe Soros was also partially responsible.

The year when both my uncle on my mom's side and my grandmother on my dad's side died. And the financial crisis happened. But at least Obama was elected. I was 4 years old then.

Good things: Sonic Unleashed, Beijing Olympics, Kung Fu Panda, Madagascar 2: Escape To Africa, Pokemon Platinum.
Bad things: The music (Some good, Lady Gaga, and some bad, The Pussycat Dolls), rumors of ghosts in upstate New York, Indiana Jones and the Kingdom of the Crystal Skull, Wall St collapses.

The financial crisis. The writer's strike. The release of Indiana Jones and the Kingdom of the Crystal Skull. Need I say more?

22 2012

I hope the 2020s decade (2021-2029) will have to bring back the 1980s, 1990s and 2000s nostalgic things. I hope this happens, but if not... I highly doubt it. Because I possibly think everything started to suck in 2016. The last good year was 2012. 2013, 2014, and 2015 were okay, but everything went downhill in 2016 possibly because Donald Trump was... voted as president on November 8, 2016.

The Mayans predicted the apocalypse on December 21, 2012. Nothing happened. Jeane Dixon predicted armageddon will be happening in 2020. Guess what? 2020 was when the Covid-19 pandemic ruined everything else! I hope 2021 will fix everything thing else.

In 2012, my personal life sucked. It was dangerously hot that year, I got put into a frustrating class (and no one bothered to help me), one of my teachers thought that I had tons of missing assignments even though I turned them in, when a couple of students misbehaved in my class I got blamed, I got sent to detention even though I never had before, I had a sinus infection that I never had before, a man shot over 20 children younger than 8 at Sandy Hook Elementary School for no reason, and many others.

My Actual Timeline:

Born on December 30, 1999

2000-2002: I was still a baby

2003-2006: I was a very little kid back then, and these years were still good for the most part and 2005 could have been better and I went to the Comphensive Learning Center School (a non profit private school for autism) and I was put to timeout a couple times and it sucked.

2007: Great year! My little sister was born

2008: Not good starting with my diabetes diagnosis and T.V. shows and networks and brands going downhill like SpongeBob, The Simpsons, Nickelodeon, DC Comics, Disney, Viacom, Paramount and other brands going downhill and they were lots of mediocre ass T.V. shows back then

2009: Pretty bad too, Not only the fate of Michael Jackson, my parents had a very small car and school for me was torture, though 2016 was also terrible because of celebrity deaths, mass shootings, and losing interest to logos

2010: Good for most of it, except for my sisters ...more
