Flip to ’17

Face PlantGiven how 2016 ended up being the most nonsensical year in a couple of decades, we’ve decided to let the year’s stupidity hang around for a bit longer than years prior. As 2016 basks in all its morbid glory, 2017 has been working behind the scenes and tallying similar counts to its older sibling. While all bad things must come to an end, we’ll look to retire 2016 and start rolling out the new stats and charts over the weekend.

UPDATE: For those of you looking for the Weekend’s Stupidity, as of 12:00a the tally stands at 5 killed, 12 wounded. We’ll post the usual rundown after we’re finished rolling over to 2017.

UPDATE 2: Flip complete. As always, we’ll be posting additional stats and graphics over the coming weeks and months as the stupidity accumulates.

Thanks for your patience and continued support.
