    isolated

    There comes a time when the sciences and history merge to form this amalgamated field of sheer discovery. Well, there were several times during the course of 2013–now in its twilight days—that the historical and scientific fusion of pure epicness re-wrote humankinds understanding of Earth, and its planetary peers that occupy the heavens. Standing at the edge of 2013, RSVLTS is counting down several interesting tidbits of information that were unearthed during the current 365 day span of time—making humankind just slightly more learned as 2014 comes roaring into the present. 10. Spears, And Possibly Other Tools, May Have Predated Humans One of human’s ancestors—named Homo heidelbergens—may be more technologically advanced than previously examined. Discovered in Africa, the spear tip in question predates the first Homo sapiens by roughly 80,000 years. According to sources, this could cause modern paleontologists to rethink human origins and the intellects of our fossilized ancestors. 9. We Don’t Know A Whole Lot About Human Origin Surely one of the less scenic sights in the nation of Spain, the Sima de los Huesos—translating to pit of bones in English—bears pretty appropriate nomenclature. Recovering a bone that dates back to 400,000 years ago, scientists assumed that they more »

    “Fifteen minutes of fame” is a Warholian quote that expresses everyone’s shot at brief stardom—whether that state of being widely known is fame or infamy is something that is entirely unknown in 2013. With the Internet growing to unprecedented levels, it has given plenty of people opportunities to engage in hooligan-like antics in order for people to take notice.

    With the perpetuation of depressing stories on 24-hour news stations, it is difficult to have faith in humanity’s seemingly dwindling sense thereof.

Metal Gear Rising: Revengeance Initially hated for stealing the spotlight from Solid Snake in 2001’s Metal Gear Solid 2: Sons of Liberty, Raiden underwent a yet-to-be-chronicled transformation into a cyborg between the events of the aforementioned game and 2008’s Metal Gear Solid 4: Guns of The Patriots. Hence, the biggest gaffe of the Metal Gear series turned into the character that many fans demanded to see again. Well, in 2013, Metal Gear Rising: Revengeance was released.

  • The 11 Most Captivating Games of the 2013 Sports Year

    Best Games of 2013

    A multi-billion dollar industry, the world of mass spectator sports is truly an integral part of American society—inspiring fans to rabidly cheer, disapprovingly jeer, and become collectively energized. What fuels this phenomenon are the games that become etched into the lore of their respective sport; when the mental torment of watching a team struggle through a difficult season culminates in a fatigue-awash victory. The best games of 2013 fit such a criteria. And, with so many team-wide moments that prove to viewers the value of hard work, RSVLTS has gathered a Top 11 list to give 2013 a Norse Funeral-like send off. 11. 2013 NFL Season Week 8: Detroit Lions vs. Dallas Cowboys Date: October 27, 2013 The NFL has an affinity for last second finishes—an occasion that is of heightened levels of scarcity in football. But, when they do occur on the gridiron, then it merits acknowledgement—regardless of which portion of the season it occurs. In this case, the Lions had their offense marching down the field when a sneak by Matthew Stafford into the end zone sealed a victory for the felines from the Motor City. 10.

In the latest installment of Yearbook13, RSVLTS has compiled a list of the most shocking stories of 2013—tales that require a more serious look back on what transpired during the year. 10.

This transpired before Dorner took his own life. 8. Chelsea Manning Trial PrivateManning.org This story came to a conclusion in 2013, a trial for leaking classified information to the Internet.

Called memes, these trendy images have generated some of the most modern and beloved ways to mindlessly pass idle time. However, there are some memes that just stand out more than others—the parodic images that engross the viewer and surreptitiously execute tree hours of the person’s time; those are the memes that RSVLTS is counting down in this installment of Yearbook13. 10. Grumpy Cats Stereotypically, cats are seen as the more independent, mellow counterpart to dogs. Hence, that extreme was taken and a whole trend of showing grimacing cats was born. 9. Actresses Without Teeth It’s shocking to realize how much of a part teeth play in making people seem attractive. And, if that is removed from the equation, unflattering it can look. 8. Hernandezing For those unfamiliar with sports, Aaron Hernandez was arrested earlier in 2013 on alleged murder charges.

And, while it may not compete with the opinion of the Associated Press, it still is a part of the Yearbook13 event—where there is a chronicling of all the most notable, memorable, and otherwise monumental aspects of the fleeting year. 10. Yasiel Puig While he didn’t win the 2013 National League Rookie of the Year Award—this young phenom unexpectedly catalyzed a trend of winning in the Dodgers Clubhouse that was expected to be—at best—sparse during the previous MLB season. 9.

Kiko Alonso The 46th overall pick in an NFL Draft that was largely considered to be underwhelming—especially when compared to recent years—Kiko Alonso entered the NFL with mixed expectations. Labelled as a “reach” by ESPN Draft Analyst Mel Kiper Jr, the foresight-lacking pundit has since undergone a drastic paradigm shift—one that came about as a result of Alonso’ stellar play.

  • Top 10 Overhyped Sports Stories of 2013 (That Didn’t Actually Matter)

    manziel

    With ESPN running nearly 24-hour sports news and banter-laden segments, they need to maintain a constant flow of material. Unfortunately, this means that many of the stories that they cover are tabloid-esque sensationalist time-fillers that further invoke the interest of a population who catalyze meaningless brouhaha. A year full of soap opera-worthy drama that ESPN beat until the end of its ninth life, 2013 had no shortage of meaningless locker room tales. And, in true End of the Year fashion, RSVLTS has the best—and least meaningful—of the sporting news abyss. 10. Mark Sanchez’s Headband Does anybody remember that guy who was the New York Jets’ starting quarterback? Well, the biggest splash he made in 2013 was via his choice of headwear. And, as the media gravitated towards it, it spiraled into a story much larger than necessary. Seriously, the MLB is on during the summer, can’t tabloid NFL stories fall to the wayside during the offseason? 9. The Alex Rodriguez Saga While controversial, the Alex Rodriguez debacle in New York City hardly has the same impact as it once did.
