Undated

These are the three events that where on everyone's mind in 2016:

  • Event: The United Kingdom shockingly voted (via public referendum) in favor of Brexit from the European Union, starting a long painful process.
  • Event: A repeatedly-shocking and often downright nasty political season in the United States. Hillary Clinton vs Donald Trump.
  • Event: Pokemon Go starts rolling out by region in July. Surprisingly large groups of strangers gather in public spaces to stare at their phones together for hours. This happens around the clock over the next few months.
