2014 was a tough year, particularly after the world lost Robin Williams, someone whose incomparable comedic mind helped teach us that sometimes laughter is the only way to see through all of the tears. Inhabitat saw our share of humorous stories this year, and we would like to dedicate this poll to Mr. Williams’s selfless pursuit of other people’s smiles. Thank you, Robin.
