At this point, you're likely beginning to reflect on the year that has been 2010. While you do that, though, while you look back on the big events of the year, it may be worth going back for a quick check to see how things worked out after the fact. Or if the fact was actually, you know, factual.
Because as Cracked points out, there's a fair chance that events didn't unfold like you saw or remembered, or at the very least, there's a bit of a postscript to be written.
Blame TV news for a lot of it.
