So... what did you do in 2013?

Photographer Kent Frost attended some weddings… suffered through an ice storm in May… watched the Boston Marathon bombing… and welcomed his first child into the world.

The latter event took place on November 14 and it became the centerpiece for the back half of this amazing video, which is comprised of one second of each day of last year.

It's a very cool idea for a video and it proves that a newborn takes over all aspects of one's life. Sit back and relive Frost's 2013 now:

There was a lot to wonder about on New Year's Eve this week.

For example: What the heck was Miley Cyrus wearing?!?

But a few folks on the other side of the country were more concerned about what they saw in the sky Wednesday night… and we aren't talking about fireworks.

Simply put, Marc McCabe and an unnamed friend videotaped the following sighting and are convinced it's a UFO:

Moreover, ABC News says there were a "flurry of reports by civilians" of unidentified flying objects, with one individual telling the station he saw "six bright orange colored lights in a diamond or triangle shape."

He added: "It was weird."

Sounds that way!

Study the above footage now and decide: UFO? Or UF... NO!

North Korean leader Kim Jong Un reportedly executed his uncle and a handful of the man’s aides by feeding them to a horde of 120 starving dogs.

Jang Song Thaek, the former #2 official in the regime, is believed to have been stripped naked and tossed into a cage along with five others.

According to the Straits Times of Singapore:

“Then 120 hounds, starved for three days, were allowed to prey on them until they were completely eaten up. This is also called ‘quan jue’, or execution by dogs."

It's called insanity if that's true.

The news of the execution first surfaced in description a Hong Kong newspaper that serves as the official mouthpiece of China’s government there.

However, more established outlets in mainland China have not repeated the account, for whatever that's worth. The account continues as such:

A raid on a home in the San Carlos Park neighborhood in Fort Myers, Fla., let to the arrest of Carroll, who was taken into custody on felony charges.

He got popped for possession of synthetic narcotics and a misdemeanor charge of allegedly keeping a shop or vehicle for dangerous drugs, CNN reports.

Not small-time quantities, either. As the warrant was served, neighbors described a swarm of police cars and dozens of officers descending on the neighborhood.

Sounds like a certain TV show Ryan is a fan of. He won a national contest to meet the stars of Breaking Bad in L.A. prior to the AMC hit's series finale.

"It's just so addicting," Carroll said at the time he won the big prize. "It's such a good show. I think it's addicting because people can relate to the main character."

A Seattle mom completed her self-imposed challenge of eating only Starbucks and other stores owned by the coffee giant, like Teavana, for a year.

Yes ... 2013 was The Year of Starbucks for her after she subsisted only on foods and drinks from Starbucks cafes for breakfast, lunch and dinner.

Beautiful Existence, which appears to be her real name and not just a social media handle, says she’d often thought about taking on such a  task.

She challenged herself to shop only at Goodwill for the entire year of 2011, so this is sort of a thing she does. As for why she went with the Bucks?

B.E.'s sister, a Starbucks employee, had only good things to say, and she liked CEO Howard Schultz’s efforts to foster political and social change.

So when Starbucks launched its Evolution line of juices, soups and salads, "I was convinced that I could do this for an entire year,” said Beautiful, 40.

Former Minnesota Vikings punter Chris Kluwe is putting the team on blast for his release, saying his vocal support of pro-gay causes is why he was cut.

Ever since he was let go after the 2012 season, he's been asked if he feels his outspokenness on marriage equality was the reason, or one of them.

He said he wasn't sure, as he wasn't present in those management meetings, but said he'd write about his experiences with the Vikings someday.

Thursday was that day. Kluwe wrote for Deadspin a piece titled "I Was An NFL Player Until I Was Fired By Two Cowards And A Bigot," and it's compelling.

Kluwe, 32 is straight, and married. No active NFL player has come out, as we know from the recent Aaron Rodgers gay rumors (which Rodgers denied).

But Kluwe believes strongly in gay rights, and says it cost him his career.

"I honestly don't know if my activism was the reason I got fired," Kluwe writes, looking back at the events. "However, I'm pretty confident it was."

He blames a trio of "cowards, former coach Leslie Frazier, general manager Rick Spielman and special teams coach Mike Priefer, for the dismissal.

Kluwe also writes that he wants to make sure Priefer never gets another coaching job again. Here are some of the accusations made by Kluwe:
