    Seemed to focus on the negatives (protests, disasters, deaths etc). Why not all the amazing things?

      Like the St Louis Cardinals

      protests are not negative when the lead to a revolution that increases freedom of a society

    This is the first time I've seen the video of the son coming out to his dad and it made me tear up quite a bit.

    No revolution, no matter how big or small,will ever be easy,it is always controversial,it is always painful and at that moment it seems like a disaster, but it is written down in history as a step forward, toward the right direction, toward freedom!!! That's why people unite and endure all the negatives.Let's keep up the struggle for a better 2012
    ChiveON everybody, it's been a tough year, but as the video says "We made it".

      "that's probably because you are a cocksucker"

    Bunch of feel good bullshit.

      The word you're looking for is "glurge".

  • so_catatonic

    pretty awesome

  • Adrian

    and again dennis ritchie was ignored

  • michaeler

    Great video, only suggestion is that when its running through famous people that died in 2011 it should include the men and women who've lost their lives fighting for this country

    • Craigery

      What about those who lost their lives fighting for OTHER countries, like our troops in Iraq and Afghanistan? Or cops and firefighters who lost their lives in the line of duty? I don't think anyone wants to watch an hour-long video showing a list of names of people they don't know.

    Cheers for remembering New Zealand. I.e Christchurch earth quakes and winning the rugby world cup.

    Shame it was just a plug for google wrapped up a warm fuzzy sentiment

  • Commando00

    I'm thinking 2012 will be the year of "TheChive"……….

    • Commando01

      I'm thinking if the Chive ever comes to a complete stop, your face is going to go half-way up its ass.
