Well guys, it’s all happening…by “it” of course we mean another plane has gone missing and 2014 is almost guaranteed to be the last year in which vanishing planes were still surprising and not a daily occurrence, a sacrifice to our alien overlords, The Eaters of Planes Over Asia. To remember this magical year of innocence, we’ve collected our best posts of the year, as decided by a top secret algorithm involving both favorite on the part of the editors and most popular in terms of page views. Enjoy but please enjoy on Earth. If you’re in the sky, we recommend you stay alert and text us if you feel your plane is starting to vanish.
“Camren Is Real: Teenage Girls’ Quiet Sexual Revolution” By Lauren O’Neal

“Everyone / Eventually: Seven Circles of Hell in the East Bay” By Nate Waggoner

So, there you have it. The magic and wonder of 2014. See you when the date arbitrarily changes to 2015! Happy New Year!
