Perhaps a “your best year of the decade” poll

My god. Putting Dark Knight Rises is crazy but if you’re gonna do that you have to include Dark Knight, no?

DrCarpenter Ann Arbor
11/12/19 10:09 pm

It’s not crazy. It’s one of the most watched films of the decade. I went off the IMDb most watched rankings.

The Dark Knight was 2008, so it was the precious decade.

I think that the one thing that's really taken off in the last ten yrs is the meme.
Kermit
Black/Gold dress
Chuck Norris
The blond woman/cat right now
That fat cat from a few yrs ago
The guy and his girlfriend checking out another chick
Seems like everyone from the Matrix
Barack and Joe
Willie Wonka

There were memes before 2010, but they exploded during the last decade. I'd do a poll comparing them.
@drcarpenter can I'm sure come up some better ones!

I'm not sure I can describe them well enough in the character limit for answers...

DrCarpenter Ann Arbor
11/12/19 11:07 pm

I’d say the pictures could be summed up pretty easily. Grumpy cat, Futurama Fry, condescending Wonka, evil Kermit, most interesting man, etc.

Yes! Memes would be fun! There are some really great ones out there. 🤣

Also, something like @kermie ‘s news showdown for the entire decade would be interesting, if anyone’s willing to take on that task.

Walking Dead?

I’m thinking there are enough TV series that this could be a two or three poll showdown.

Gst- I specifically listed tv shows that started 2010 or later. Not ones that started 2001-2009 and went into this decade.

Krystina - I agree.

For added fun, the suggested showdown that I post that gets the most upvotes will win its author a modestly fabulous prize (that I haven't decided on yet). Game on!
