What will 2018 be remembered for? Perhaps it will be the global creep of authoritarianism or the inspiration of young gun control activists. Maybe we will look back at the historic number of women voted into Congress or the constant reminders of how far we still have to go. Or possibly, 2018 will go down as the year of Black Panther, a royal wedding, and Kanye West losing his mind.

This much is for certain: It's been another wild, wacky year on planet Earth. Here is how people tried to sum up 2018.
