With the year quickly coming to an end I thought that I would highlight some of the silliest, serious, and eye raising events that have happened during 2023.

1) The 2022 Russian invasion of Ukraine continued throughout 2023. Countries from around the world had pledged support to Ukraine so they could fend their homeland against foreign intrusion.

Update Sept. 7, 2023: data since January 24, 2022, and through July 31, 2023 

Over the summer, the EU has sent a clear signal by announcing a new €50 billion multi-year support package to be delivered through 2027, which doubles total EU commitments. The EU’s “Ukraine Facility” is showing a lasting commitment to support Ukraine.   

In addition, there have been important new multi-year commitments from individual European countries, in particular a 4-year military support package of Germany worth €10.5 billion (2024–2027) and Norway’s “Nansen Support Program” worth €6.6 billion over 5 years. Additional multi-year packages were committed by Denmark, UK, Switzerland, Sweden, Portugal, and Lithuania.  

Moreover, the Ukraine Support Tracker lists new, short-term commitment increases from Europe, in particular by Germany worth €619 million and by the United Kingdom worth €286 million. Total EU commitments are now almost double those of the US.

2) The women’s world cup happened this year, congratulations are in order to the winning team from Spain. Second place was England, and third went to Sweden.

3) This is the year we found out Dracula went vegan.

Count Dracula has been sucking blood for hundreds of years but had a big scare last month. He was immediately admitted for an emergency quadruple bypass surgery. “When he came in it was very ‘touch-and-go’. We immediately set up a blood-infused IV and turned off all the lights,” said Dr. Andrei Romanescu, Chief Surgeon of the University of Transylvania Medical Center. “He was in good spirits and was joking with the female nurses – making comments about their necklines”

NASA UFO report finds no evidence of 'extraterrestrial origin' for UAP sightings

"But we don't know what these UAP are," NASA chief says. The agency is appointing a new UAP research director.

NASA's UFO study team released its long-awaited first report today, and while its experts found no signs of extraterrestrial origins for reported sightings, the space agency is appointing a new chief to study the phenomenon.

New ‘sighting’ of Loch Ness monster captured in ‘most exciting’ photos ever

By Brooke Steinberg

 Updated Aug. 31, 2023, 4:44 p.m. 

A “sighting” of the Loch Ness Monster has resulted in photos being called the “most exciting ever” by those on the hunt for the fabled creature.

The photos — which show a “serpent”-like animal with its body on the surface of the loch — were actually taken in 2018, but photographer Chie Kelly, 51, kept them to herself in fear of public ridicule.

However, now that there’s a large ongoing search for the famed water beast — the largest Loch Ness hunt in 50 years — Kelly, a translator, was convinced to put the photos out into the world.

She and her husband, Scott, were having lunch at the Dores Inn on the banks of the loch in Inverness, Scotland, on Aug. 13, 2018, when she started to take photos.


I wonder what sort of interesting things that will happen in 2024. We shall see, but first I would like to thank everyone that tuned in and here’s to next year. Keep being weird UM members.
