Via Deeply Trivial, this:
With the passing of midnight just a few moments ago in Samoa, the world has officially and completely moved into 2017.
2016 has officially ended here in Chicago.
About fucking time.
It's just past midnight in the island nation of Kiritimati (pronounced "Christmas"), which means 2016 has officially ended somewhere in the world. I am overjoyed. I just hope 2017 goes better for everyone, but with the least-qualified person in history about to become President, my hope has limits.
Happy new year, central Pacific island states!
