Not Always Right: 15th Anniversary Month! – 2012 Retrospective

, | Right | October 10, 2022

Dear readers,

We’re diving back into our anniversary celebrations with a trip back to 2012! Many people believed that the world would end this year as suggested by the end of the Mayan Calendar, but it was not to be so! We’re still kicking!

Queen Elizabeth II celebrated her Diamond Jubilee in 2012, and the Mars Science Laboratory’s Curiosity Rover successfully landed on Mars. London, England played host to the Summer Olympics, where US swimmer Michael Phelps became the most decorated Olympian of all time with an astonishing twenty-two lifetime medals!

Marvel’s The Avengers smashed onto the scene in 2012, Gangnam Style went viral and became permanently lodged in our brains, and The Twilight Saga: Breaking Dawn – Part 2 brought an end to a strangely delightful era of sparkly vampires and absurdly attractive werewolves.

Meanwhile, back at the ranch (Not Always Right), we launched the Working category and published nearly 5,000 stories lovingly submitted by our readers! Let’s take a look at some of the best!
