Here's my brief take on some of the top around-the-world events in 2010. Needless to say the complete list is much bigger, but these are ones that float to the surface in my mind first:
The Haiti earthquake....so heartbreaking.
The BP oil spill....insanely painful to watch and jaw dropping in it's length!
The Chilean miners rescue....the entire world watched this like the moon landing in 1969; emotional and uplifting.
Lindsay Lohan goes to jail in July....no wait, don't let her out after two weeks! KEEP HER ASS IN THERE UNTIL SHE BREAKS!!!
Volcanic ash from one of several eruptions beneath Eyjafjallajökull causes weeks of flight delays in Europe....Mother Earth decided to poot on us because she doesn't like all the global warming that's going on! I think someone saw Al Gore having lunch with her the day before everything went to hell.
The war in Iraq ends!....yay, Obama, fuck you, Bush!!!
WikiLeaks releases a gi-normous collection of confidental US documents....oh what's the matter, US Government? Don't like when you're viewed COMPLETELY NAKED like when the TSA scans you at the airport?
Kim Jong-il in North Korea shells Yeonpyeong Island....I think he's just ronery.
A faction of true morons in this country claiming that 'Barack Obama is the worst President ever'....WTMotherF???!!! SERIOUSLY???!!! Oh but wait, I think they made a typo. I believe that guy's name is spelled B - U - S - H.
The childish mud slinging that went on during the California governor's election....made me feel like voting for someone in any kind of election is just plain pointless. Will anything ever really change depending on whose in office? Probably not.
In my next post, on to something that DOES change each year....My favorite, not so favorite, disappointing, and confusing in their positive reception movies of 2010!
