This year has been a whirlwind so far, and it is not even close to over yet. There have been great movies, great albums, events that have been both heartbreaking and heartwarming, life-changing politics, and many topics you wouldn’t believe actually happened.
Starting with basically New Year’s Day, and coming right up to the end of June, this list covers some of the strangest things that have already happened this year. Most of these you have probably heard about already, as they were huge news stories, but some of them may have squeezed past you in the chaos of social media news.
This list covers some politics, although it is not an opinion piece on who is right or wrong. It also covers some pop culture news, with protests and making statements, as well as some civilian protests that did not make the impact they hoped. While most of these have to do with events in America or regarding America, there are a few foreign events thrown in. After all, we’re not the only odd country out there. In a world full of people, there are bound to be some weird and odd things that happen every day. We have simply picked some of the best. What do you think should have made the list? Let us know your opinion.

1 The UK Brexit Boat Battle
Before the UK actually voted to leave the EU, there were some very newsworthy items that happened with each side campaigning for votes. One of the highlights of the campaign? A boat fight. Yes, an actual boat fight. With water canons spraying and men on boats yelling and fighting. It started with the “Leave” side leading a flotilla down the Thames, protesting for fishing rights and their waters back. Then they were ambushed by a group of “In” supporters that were not to be outdone with this dramatic act. The citizens watched in amazement, with many Tweeting out pictures confused and astounded. With a lot of odd things going on in America at the time, citizens joked that London was trying to outdo the USA for weird acts of the day and were succeeding as a lone city. It amused some, and terrified others that a serious issue was being brought down to a deranged boat battle one could only laugh about.
