It's almost 2020 y'all!!!! The end of the decade that gave us the iPad, the new Star Wars trilogy, and Lizzo, and the beginning of one that is bound to give us an abundance of positivity and happiness. But we will always remember some of the crazier things the past decade has brought us, including the ones you are about to read.

u/Yokeyoyo asked: People of Reddit, what's the craziest thing that's happened this decade?



Good sh*t.

The New Horizons spacecraft getting within a few thousand miles of Pluto and transmitting clear pictures of Pluto back to Earth.

DeathSpiral321

Scientists seeing the detailed picture for the first time.

ForbidReality

Insanity.

Giphy

The first photo of a black hole.

ice_slime

Right!? Growing up getting told this is something you can't see but it can destroy galaxies, then to end up being the first generation of people to actually see these things? Insanity.

Imaginary_Parsley

A true miracle.

Ozzy lived through it.

Figure8Ball

Or Keith Richards. Just further proof he harvests the souls of celebrities who have died this decade.

Get it together, Apple.

Evolution of the mobile phone.

In only a couple years the focus went from being small, to thin, to big, and now to a flat bar of soap CAN YOU STOP REMOVING ALL THE F*CKING PORTS, APPLE.

TheEnKrypt

Definitely.

Giphy

The explosion of Social Media.

Naweezy

Good answer. In Stockholm where I live pretty much all people my age had already had Facebook since around 2007-2008, and some also imported iPhones, but things really exploded around 2010 when suddenly over the course of a few months everyone got a smartphone.

So maybe smart phones had been an even better answer. Everyone having a computer in their pockets is pretty crazy when you think about it.

NowNowMyGoodMan

The sad truth.

If you had told anyone in either country that Donald Trump would be the president of the US and Boris Johnson would be the prime minister of the UK, they would have laughed at you.

How does this happen?

We lost a f*cking plane and still haven't found it!!!!

Amelia Earhart: "Am I a joke to you?"

TripleDigit

Now I gotta wash my mouth out with soap.

Giphy

Idk if you guys remember but people started f*cking eating soap for fame.

Trixieboi

The reality of it was that the "Tide Pod Challenge" was never a challenge and it was basically only very small kids who thought it was candy, and old people, who ate it.

But it didn't stop the media from blowing it out of proportion and making DAE STOOPID MILLUHNUHLZ??? xDDDD jokes.

MissingNoh_

D*cks out for Harambe.

We all got our genitals out for a deceased primate.

Pathstrider

Neither can I.

I just can't believe that planking happened this decade.

Some people like sweets, some people like alcohol, some people are willing to spend extra money a month just to have full access to all 14 seasons of their favorite obscure Canadian detective show.

Love or money?

An age old question.

Ideally, you wouldn't have to decide between the two.

In a perfect world, you would be able to find the true love of your life and be incredibly wealthy all at once.

But, as the saying goes, you can't have everything.

Though if faced with having to choose between the two, people might have a different idea of what the obvious answer would be.

Redditor lulinghayaw was curious how people would decide when faced with this decision, leading them to ask:

"Genuine, true love or 5 million dollars? Why?"

It's highly believed that it is important to learn history as a means to improve our future.

What is often overlooked is that what is taught in history class is going to be very different depending on where you went to school.

And this isn't just internationally, even different regions of the United states will likely have very different lessons on American history.

This frequently results in our learning fascinating, heartbreaking and horrifying historical facts which our middle or high school history teachers neglected to teach us.

Redditor Acherontia_atropos91 was curious to learn things people either wished they had learned, or believe they should have learned, in their school history class, leading them to ask:

What isn’t taught in history class but should be?

So apparently we are in the endemic phase of this nonsense.

We have light at the end of the tunnel.

So what now?

Where do we go from here?

Normal seems like an outdated word.

How do we get back to normal though?

Is it even possible?

What are reaching back to?

Life pre-Covid.

Those were the days.

If only we could bring them back.

Redditor hetravelingsong wanted to discuss our new normal in this hopeful "endemic" phase. So they asked:

"What’s something random you miss about pre-COVID times?"
