101 Most Shocking Moments of 2014

As always, remember these tidbits about the list:

A. For anonymity purposes I sometimes refer to a person simply as he or she. Thus, not all the he's or she's are the same person. As well as, some things are very, very vague. 

B. I tried to put each moment in its proper order, with the absolute most shocking moment as number one and so on ... But it gets really complicated ... and boring. So, top 10 are pretty concrete. The further back it goes, the less in order they are. 

C. I had a really difficult time not putting exclamation points at the end of all of these. :) Shocking moments deserve exclamation points, however, over-used exclamation points defeat the purpose of an exclamation point in the first place. :)

D. You should see how many YOU are in or apply to you and let me know!

And now, without further adieu ...
