Top 10 Awesome Things of 2008

This wouldn't be a proper blog without at least one top ten list. So here is the top ten awesome things that happened this year:

10.
Dr. Horrible's Sing-Along Blog released. Three-act musical webshow makes the world laugh and sing.

9.
I get a helix piercing. It is pretty awesome.

8.
Several cool people announce video projects. Tucker Max is making a movie, I Hope They Serve Beer in Hell (based on his hilarious book of the same name), and blogging the whole production process. Maddox is making a show, and so is Dresden Codak.

7.
World of Goo released. Physics-based game from indie developer 2D Boy takes the world by storm, rockets to #2 place on Amazon after World of Warcraft. I formulate plans to make a game called World of [something].

6.
SGU announce Australia trip. In episeode 175, the cast of my favourite podcast, The Skeptics Guide to the Universe, announce that they are coming to Australia in 2010.

5.
I reach halfway point for my degree. Two years of uni down, two to go.

4.
Phoenix lands on Mars. On May 25, NASA's Phoenix craft successfully lands on the red planet where it confirms the presence of ice and entertains us all with Twitter.

3.
Large Hadron Collider completed. On September 10, the first beam is circulated through the biggest particle accelerator ever made. On October 21 the LHC is officially inaugurated.

2.
Barack Obama elected US president. An intelligent, savvy and uncorrupt guy is chosen by a landslide to take the reigns from a bumbling idiot. Unfortunately for Isaac Asimov, he is not selected by a computer.

1.
Petrol prices drop to five year low. Motorists everywhere rejoice.
