    Predictions for the Final Twist of 2020

    We may have only five weeks to go, but we shouldn’t breathe easy yet, because who knows what twists 2020 might throw at us in the remaining month-and-a-bit?

    Personally, I think it would be really crazy if on New Year's Eve, Betelgeuse went supernova after all, like "Ha, I bet you forgot about me!"
    The greatest journey of all time, for all to see
    Every mission makes our dreams reality
    And our destiny begins with you and me
    Through all space and time, the achievement of mankind
    As we sail the sea of discovery, on heroes’ wings we fly!

    How would that be an unexpected twist when that’s what we’ve been doing since February?

    It all has been a dream, while nightmare of political official who thought he was vetoed out, but in reality he hasn't.

    I dunno, I would say 2013 is when the world began to descend into chaos, the original date might have been right after all.

    I just saw a commercial for a Richard Simmons Chia pet. That tops anything I could make up.

    After 13 years, a space-time portal spits out a very bewildered Steve Fossett.

    The final twist of 2020 is that it slopped over into early 2021, and some people are still trying to hang onto it.
