Plenty of great things happened during 2014. There were tons of funny moments in pop culture, a lot of cute new celebrity couples, some truly amazing movies, and loads of people who tried to do things to change the world.
That being said, a lot of really annoying things happened too. Of course, a lot of really terrible things happened as well, but that’s something to talk about at another time. For now, let’s focus on the truly frustrating things that happened on the Internet and in the world in general that need to stop happening in the new year. Here are 15 annoying things about 2014 that need to go away in 2015, according to Reddit users:
Clickbait Headlinesecommy: "This will break the internet" "A young boy petted a dog, what happens next will amaze you!" IF I SEE ONE MORE OF THESE ON MY FACEBOOK.... I don't know what I'm going to do. There is nothing worse than this kind of clickbait.
Crazy Extravagant Engagement VideosOffthepoint: The plethora of "getting engaged" videos, where the guy has to do it in front of 3,000 people, and the girl cups her hands over her mouth in surprise. I'm not trying to be a grouch. But since when do engagements have to be huge and elaborate and totally public? Sometimes it ends up feeling more like people are just trying to get a lot of YouTube views and their 15 minutes of fame rather than proposing to someone they love.
Social Experiment VideosFelstavatt: So called "social experiments". insert_a_funny_name: "Stealing peoples phones in the ghetto (social experiment)" When someone gets pissed start yelling its a prank and I dont know if they know but a regular street where 4 black people are walking is not "the ghetto". Yeah, these are really stupid. Some of them have a point, but most of them really don't.
'I Can't...'EggrollsForever: The phrase "literally can't even." But, like, really, I literally can't even. I mean, I CAN'T.
Fake FeminismBadaBing-BadaBoom: Pop culture feminism. Not feminism itself or women's rights. Just the SJW, idiotic tweets and statements from some deranged people, and celeberties trying to boost their popularity by saying they're feminists. Feminism itself is great and worth fighting for. It's something we should all accept and we should all work together on a better, equal future. But some of these discussions are just idiotic and unnecessary. Totally agree. A year ago, many celebrities were hesitant to say they were feminists. Now a lot of those celebrities that put the word down are embracing it. Sure, it could be because they've had a change of heart - or it could be because they know it's a hot topic right now.
Prank Videosimaprettykitty6: "Pranks" on Vine and Youtube. The kids that do those things sicken me. Once in a while, a really funny prank video comes out. Or a good one does, like Prank It Forward. Most of the time, they're mean and pointless. Why do them?
The Word THOTMyAnonSourceIsACat: I don't wanna see "THOTS" anymore anywhere on the internet. Just. Stop. Now.
Calling Everyone and Everything Baenaughtymuffins: Bae Foudroyant: But then who else will catch you slippin 2014 slang was on a whole other level. Can't wait to see what 2015 brings?
Treating People The Wrong Waywtf_hell: The terrible way people treat each other. If we all helped each other out with no strings attached nor an agenda, the world would be a better place. Can we make 2015 the year everyone stops being a huge jerk? Source: ShutterStock
The Frozen ManiaAutobot248: People singing every time they hear something similar to "let it go" Everyone chill. No pun intended.
People Talking About How They Want To Go Back In Timemelting_snowman: People wanting the world to go back to the 50s because it was a simpler time. Yea have fun with a load of racism and even more police brutality, as well as sexism. Sure does sound swell! The grass is always greener, you know? Older decades may seem magical and wonderful, but there HAS been progress and you shouldn't take that for granted. Source: ShutterStock
Butts Everywhereevil_snow_queen: Songs about asses, raps about asses, 'performances' about asses (twerking), anything and everything else to do with asses or any male or female genitalia outside of porn. I. Have. Had. Enough. Express yourself however you want, and I'm all for female sexuality. But, let's relax with the butts a little bit?
Keep Calm And...Boogie_Boof: "Keep Calm and..." Just please stop. Why is this still a thing that's happening?
The Sense Of Entitlement A Lot Of People Feelcommencedownvotes: The growing trend of social justice warriors, double standards, hypocrisy and self-righteousness. Yep. Source: ShutterStock
