“Wow. What an awful year 2016 has been," says everyone always. Everyone except the celebrities, YouTube Stars, and living memes of YouTube’s 2016 Rewind.
This is a packed event filled with references to everything that happened this year, except the really, really bad stuff. Well, there's a reference to Bowie passing, but that's it. It's all good times from here on out. Let’s see what we’ve got here:
The guy water bottle flipping guy
Something called “I Has Cupquake”
The dude that does magic but covers his mouth electrical tape
The starts of this thing that has over 2 million views
Daniel from Damn, Daniel
The Slow Mo Guys
MUCH, MUCH MORE
Look if your video went viral last year and you’re not in this thing, it’s time to get a new agent. Yeah, I’m talking to you, Misha. Where you at? 45-million views. WHERE YOU AT?
Like everything on YouTube, it’s a real mix of things that are annoying, entertaining, ridiculously cheery, and downright confusing. But that’s what the internet is about, and honestly, it’s better than the other half of the internet, which is startlingly depressing.
The world is filled with questions, so many questions that’s hard to tell which one to answer first.
And then some questions are just unanswerable, even if you’re asking the smart people at MineCon ’16, the annual Minecraft Convention.
One little boy asked said question, and it has left us stunned.

They’re leaving what weather and how you golf up to chance, using a weather wheel and a wheel to determine where they would be hitting from. They spin the wheels and do what it says. Then, the other dudes make it happen, which mostly means pelting their friend with garbage.
The Elf on the Shelf is a horrific Christmas tradition.
Designed to scare children into good behavior, the Elf is a cheery-eyed Santa crony. He monitors children for the big man, reports back, and ultimately decides whether you end up on the naughty list or not.
New Yorkers are a rare breed. They’re the type to not take something sitting down. If there’s a problem, they like to get in there and get their hands dirty, and one thing they have no tolerance for is traffic.
Enter YouTuber Coby Persin, a young man who decided to stage a photoshoot at a busy New York intersection, blocking traffic.
Enter a man with a bat, who — well, you know the rest.

Wired has taken umbrage with the idea that the tryptophan-heavy turkey is what causes the Thanksgiving tiredness. In fact, as they point out in this bite-sized video, it’s the whole meal that makes you tired.
From soup to nuts, or whatever Thanksgiving metaphor that works better for this article, the whole meal delivers a hardy mixture of tryptophan and carbs. Ugh, not them again.

Check it out the video and be the smartest person at the table.
