The internet: an unfathomably complex global tool that has allowed society to connect and advance faster than at any other time in human existence. Also: a playground for idiots.
With the dying of 2016's light, we thought we'd do a nice list (everyone likes a nice list) of the biggest morons to log onto the World Wide Web this year.
Everyone who googled "What is Brexit?" the day after Brexit
This exact search genuinely made it onto Google's top 10 most popular search terms for 2016. Guys, what the f**k.
The guy who posed for a selfie with a potential suicide bomber
Ben Innes was on a flight to Egypt when he noticed a man wearing what clearly looked like a suicide bomber's vest. So what did he do? Took a selfie with him, of course - because in 2016 nothing is more important than 'going viral' for five minutes. Luckily the vest turned out to be a fake used by the man to get the plane to emergency land. Innes, meanwhile, just looked like a d**k.

And this random snapchat user

Microsoft's AI Twitter bot that went a bit off the rails...
Microsoft introduced a bot called "Tay" back in March, which was designed to answer Twitter users' question in the casual speech patterns of a stereotypical millennial. Unfortunately it didn't take long for Tay to be hacked by racist trolls, leaving Microsoft with a fair amount of digital egg on its face.
Anthony Weiner and his errant weiner
A man who was caught not once, but twice sending 'sexy' pictures to women through Twitter . He also happened to be a former congressman and the husband (now ex) of Hilary Clinton's top aide. Oh Anthony, Anthony, Anthony.
Everyone who bought a Supreme-branded brick
It sold out online in minutes. It is also a brick.
This absolute legend
Speaks for itself, really.
Joleon Lescott after Aston Villa's 6-0 loss to Liverpool
The Villa centre back claimed he 'accidentally' posted this picture of a Mercedes S63 AMG Coupe after getting annihilated by Liverpool. Safe to say the fans were a bit upset.
This charming couple and their tipping 'trick'
We recommend not using this tipping method if you want your food to remain uncontaminated.
Donald Trump trying not to be racist
Big Don tried to backtrack on his multiple slurs against American Hispanics with this tweet. That's not really how it works.
Dani Mathers, the Snapchat body-shamer
A charming ex-Playboy model who decided it was a cool idea to Snapchat a picture of a 75-year-old woman having a shower at her local gym.
Sometimes words just fail you.
