Throughout the year I collect images that define the zeitgeist. Here are images, memories, and memes from 2016, a year that many people I know would rather forget. But it happened, and we must remember…
We found a large number of planets almost like Earth.
In 1993 George Bush wrote a polite note to his successor, Bill Clinton.
Not sure what Aruthur’s angry fist was a bout, but I’m told it was a meme.
The nightly show got cancelled.
I gave a summer series of neuroscience lectures.
Darth found the rebel bass. Also, Carrie Fisher died, and her mother Debbie Reynolds died a few days later. It was a sad day for the rebellion.
2016… it’s all about authoritative sounding but factually incorrect information.
If the fart killed everyone, how could there be a sequel?
After being surrounded by despair, I decided I would try and write 100 reasons to be grateful for our world. I truly believe we are luckily to be alive now – when there is more potential to do Good than any prior generation – and it is just a matter of seeing things in a different light. No, the world isn’t magically erasing all its ills, but that’s why we are here – to accomplish things and steer the world in the right direction. I am grateful for that chance.
