Like a particularly unsatisfying ending to a long-running TV show, 2013 is coming to a close. And like that particularly unsatisfying ending to a long-running TV show, everyone in your social media circle has an opinion about it, and they’ve shared it with you until you can no longer think about that long-running TV show without a feeling of nausea overtaking you. It’s ruined. For now and evermore.

With that in mind, here are the top 52 things that were ruined in 2013, and although they’re numbered, the items in this list are in no apparent order. Well, except for No. 1.
