Flashback: 10 of the most mind-blowing things that happened in this decade

I can’t believe that the decade is ending.

It feels like the 2000s just started but in reality, those who were born at the turn of the millennia are already turning 20.

The Malaysia Airlines flight went missing in March 2014 and there haven’t been any conclusive findings of it yet.
