Well this year could have been better. I really do have a feeling 2022 will be better. Most even numbered years tend to be.

And I have a feeling the Washington Generals are overdue for a win.
 
2021-12-30 10:20:04 AM  
Worst year ever... Well, yeah no.
 
2021-12-30 10:37:07 AM  
Social media fight. We've got terrorists still walking the streets, a global pandemic, and Firefly still hasn't been renewed for a second season, and we're supposed to give a shiat about DoYouKnowWhoMyFatherWas versus IAmTheWorstTake saying mean things about each other?
 
2021-12-30 10:53:09 AM  
Only way to settle this feud is to see who can swallow the most prescription sleeping pills and vodka at the same time.
 
2021-12-30 10:53:49 AM  
Can we permanently remove both McCain and Cillizza from their platforms? That'd be a big upgrade for the year.
 
2021-12-30 10:54:43 AM  
Meghan and Cillizza had a fight? And Daily Beast thought that was the capper? Not 400k COVID deaths or Joe Biden signing more oil drilling permits than Trump?!

SuperSonics are coming back to Seattle, and the Mariners are going to the Series.  And the Huskies are going to win another Natty under the generalship of Don James' reanimated corpse.

I'd say 1941 qualifies as the worst year ever.  Maybe.  There are a lot of candidates though.  A lot.
 
2021-12-30 10:56:59 AM  
Naw.  I got a bunch of worser years.   Including the one when I supposed-like flunked English.  Unpossible.
Every year, I'd say "This will be the year for Harry" and every time, the year says "Harry, let's be friends.  But not close friends.  Or, you know, friends that talk a lot."

TofuTheAlmighty: Can we permanently remove both McCain and Cillizza from their platforms? That'd be a big upgrade for the year.


Well, you can solve the McCain problem by abducting her to the Brooklyn bridge and tossing a few hot dogs over the side.

Cillizza would probably take a bit more work...maybe an invitation to a tire fire from Putin?

Lo, thus it has come to pass as it was written in the Elder days. Soon the great Worm will awaken and begin to sing the song of the ending of all things.

This. Unfortunately, life is struggle and conflict and we never catch a break.
 
2021-12-30 11:03:20 AM  
it's been a long December and there's reason to believe
maybe this year will be better than the last.
 
2021-12-30 11:04:43 AM  
At least if you lived in Europe, the worst year ever was probably 536 AD.  Not only had the Roman Empire completely gone down the crapper and civilization as you knew it had collapsed, something happened that basically blocked the sun for almost a year, leading to massive crop failures and famine.

Nothing's blocked the sun...yet.  There's time.
 
2021-12-30 11:06:33 AM  
shiat shows and existential nightmares transcend time. They have no clue a new year is about to start. It's gonna be all suck every year from here on out.
 
2021-12-30 11:07:13 AM  
2020/2021 just seemed like one really long year of more of the same.

A douche-off.

But damn, is Megan McCain not the perfect example of what is wrong with a lot of the right wing in this country.  Entitled brat with no self awareness that thinks for some reason she has earned her way completely on her own.    She would be less than a nobody if she fell out of different vagina.  Fark her.
 
2021-12-30 11:10:59 AM  
I'd say we have a good running start on worst decade since the 1940s.

Remember when people around here thought she wasn't that bad because she had big tits and said something liberal once? Farkeridge Farm remembers.

But in my own defense, all I can recall is the tits.

She's awful and would have no career of she looked like Amy Carter who is a good person.  Chris Cillizza is a total magoo that wants everyone to like him and his terrible terrible takes.  I hope they kill each other.

In the world these people live in, they don't know any of the covid dead so they aren't real, and they think climate change is something that happens to other people.

So to them, yes: a social media slap fight is one of the worst things that could happen.

I think I'd rather subject myself to a ten-hour Jason Friedberg/Aaron Seltzer marathon than follow that shiat.

Well, it was pretty tone deaf to post a picture of what appears to be a big box of test kits. Subby doesn't remember 2020 either because if it did he would know how people hoarding was shiat on.

Holy crap.  If I could force one family to pay their medical bill, it would be this one.  I mean, pick them up by their ankles and shake the money out of them.   Hook up the house to a truck and drive it away.  When they get a check in the mail, a hand comes in from another envelope, grabs the check and takes it away.

The last day of 2020, after all the shiat that TFG did to this country, my wife slipped on our 3sq ft. Brick stair landing outside our kitchen door, which was covered with the sheerest black ice glazeI ve ever seen, and cracked her knee cap in half.

2020 well and truly sucked, but 2021 sucked epically on three or four fronts simultaneously.

Just that board alone with nothing written on it is a good example of why nurses are leaving the field.

Not that it's a problem to fill that board out... But while you're trying to do it for this patient an 4 others while bed 3 is paging you for a coke and bed 5 is off telemetry again and you had a CNA at the start of the shift, but they got sent home due to staffing issues so now the entire unit is sharing one CNA and she is burned out and just running her ass off to get vitals done because they're more important than bed 3's coke oh and you're getting an admission - we didn't tell you about the admission, sorry but they're already here do nurse to nurse after you get an IV in ... Wait where are you going? Oh you haven't been to the bathroom in 6 hours we'll do that on your break if you ever get one...

Literally any year in 14th century Europe wants to know what the fark a "twitter dispute" is and what it has to do with the plague, endless war, and rampant theft and murder.

This year sucks but until you can look across the horizon and for years see where every other town is due to the black clouds of them burning their dead this little twitter fight can calmly eat my entire ass.

I don't think 2021 was all that bad.

1. D2S got impeachment #2
2. Biden came in and got the infrastructure bill passed
3. Many morons who didn't get teh vaxx and teh Free Refill ended up taking a dirt nap
4. Unemployment was low
5. Sportsball returned
6. 100% Working From Home became a pretty standard thing
7. USA got back in the Paris Accords
8. More cars are switching to electricity rather than fossil fuels
9. Netanyahu is out of office
10. Alex Jones got his balls sued off, Rush Limbaugh is dead (may have been 2020, IDGAF)

So, yeah, it wasn't all rainbows and teddy bears, but still a lot better than 2020.
