If you didn’t do the bottle cap challenge, the bird box challenge, the floor is lava challenge, the water bottle challenge, the ice bucket challenge, the mannequin challenge, the Harlem shake, floss, dab or plank, then were you even a part of the twenty-tens?

This decade also saw the world population hit 7 billion and the rescue 33 Chilean miners, the London Olympics and Felix Baumgartner’s mind-blowing leap from space!
