I really don't have much to talk about today so I figured I'd do a quick 2012 recap and 2013 kickoff type of thing.
2012 was an interesting year filled with lots of ups and downs.
On the bad side there were all kinds of fighting and turmoil popping up around the globe along with government overthrows and violence galore. There were multiple stories over the year of mass shootings here in the US in movie theaters, malls, schools, and other public places. Hurricane Sandy and other natural disasters rocked us here and across the globe.
On the good side many of the protests and fighting lead to much needed changes. We successfully landed the Curiosity rover on the surface of Mars and have been receiving tons of cool info ever since. Felix Baumgartner rode a weather balloon to the edge of outer space and did a one man free fall all the way back to Earth. The US kicked Olympic ass with 104 total medals in the London Summer Games. James Cameron dove to the deepest parts of the ocean to study life down below. The first person was cured of HIV.
Here's a really cool video Google put together that really covers a ton of 2012 in just a few minutes:
As for 2013, 13 has always been my lucky number so this year will hopefully live up to that potential. Here's to another 365 days of potential fun!
