One thing i will remember from 2014

How Tony Abbott coined the term Team Australia when he wanted to fight against terrorists, especially people who were from Australia who went to other countries like Iraq and Syria

It evoked feelings of this->

Team Australia? F Yeah! O<>

Just a slight nitpick ... he said "I am not straight" ;)

I actually had a heated online discussion with someone because they took back their congratulations on his coming out because he did not actually say "I am gay" this despite him saying later in the interview 'As a gay man'.

Some people wanted him to stand on a mountaintop and say "I am gay and always have been"

And another thing that 2014 will be remembered for is the number of celebrities that have departed this mortal coil:

Joan Rivers
Robin Williams
Lauren Bacall
Richard Attenborough
Paul Seymour Hoffman
James Garner
Ann B Davis
Shirley Temple
Bob Hoskins
Sir Tom Finney

to name but a few

Dont forget senator george brandis's attempt to not sound like an octogenarian at parliament with that classic gaffe of saying 'the facebook' like it was 'the bakery around the corner from my house where hugo and I smoked opium in the back alley in my day' :lol:
