21 Things You Didn’t Know You Realized In 2016

On January 20, 2016, Kylie Kristen Jenner–reality television persona, lip kit maven, and devout chemtrails meme enthusiast–put some content on the internet. Or, to be more exact, she put what would soon become the most important, revolutionary content of the upcoming year on the internet, a 30-second long YouTube video titled KYLIE UP CLOSE: My 2016 Resolutions. In it, she says that her resolution in the new year (which, technically, was not so new, considering that nearly a month had passed since the beginning of 2016, but never mind all that) is going to be to, like, realize stuff.

You can check out the full video here:

Oh, how we laughed.  Cruel “realizing things” memes ran rampant. Kind strangers on the internet urged Kylie to fire her PR team. Comments are disabled on the video because people ripped Kylie apart so badly. Is it that hard to see why?

But the joke, as it turns out, was on us. As you probably already know, 2016 really was the year of realizing things. In fact, there are some things you probably didn’t even know you realized this year. And it begs the question: is Kylie Jenner smarter than we all thought? Can she predict the future? Or do we spend too much time on the Internet? Regardless, check out these important, life-changing things you didn’t even know that you realized in 2016:

1. You realized that Ted Cruz is the Zodiac Killer, probably:
