Trump gets second term.

Sorry, I don't like it any more than most here, but that is what will happen.

My 2020 prediction is that the Trump Income Tax Records for the last several years will finally become available to the public. These records will clearly show that Trump is not nearly as rich as he likes to claim and that much of the money that he did get, actually came from a number of unsavory sources.

All of which will result in a substantial loss of his supporters which will cause him to loose the upcoming election and his Republican toadies to run for cover.

At the stroke of midnight, December 31st, 2019.

- Donald J. Trump will still hold the office of President of the United States and will have been elected to a second term.
- Great Britain will not have fully "Brexited" yet.
- Either Queen Elizabeth or Jimmy Carter will be dead, but not both.

Wow, a snap election! Only got about eight days to call and hold it!

Yes, I know you meant 2020.

The first part of your prediction is possible, but unlikely. Not the less wealthy or unsavory sources aspects, but that they will become available.

The second part is pure fantasy. His dedicated supporters really wouldn't abandon him if he shot someone on Fifth Avenue.

- "The Irishman" wins Best Picture, finally causing the "Are films released through non-traditional means really cinema" argument to boil over. Note since it is all meaningless semantic and pedantic categorization the debate won't actually get resolved since it is meaningless, but it will boil over.

Red: Most expensive noodles ever!

Trump won't be impeached. He will continue to try to out the whistle blower and punish them.

He will lose the election and spend the lame duck doing everything he can to steal money and get even with everyone.

I just checked: Neptune's orbit shows no sign of any changes. I'll keep updating this thread throughout the entire current Neptunian year and the next one, too.

Tomorrow you mean?

Let's see here's my predictions about your predictions:
First one: only half true. He will still be the president at midnight tomorrow, but the election won't have happened yet.
Second one: true. Won't happen till at least the end of 2020.
Third one: They'll both still be alive at midnight tomorrow.

The production company will be run by Lorraine Williams, and the company will eventually go bankrupt after she lines her pockets with royalty payments. Insiders will describe her not allowing any testing of technology before creating the final film, since they're getting paid to make movies, not play with computer software on company time.


I'm not bitter.


(Lorraine Williams took over TSR Hobbies in 1985 and presided over it running into the ground until 1997. It's reported that she hated role-playing games and wouldn't allow new products to be playtested before release, since that would require employees playing games on company time. TSR released a series of board games, RPGs, computer games, novels, and comics using the Buck Rogers IP, the rights to which are owned by Williams.)

Financial markets will collapse and world panic will occur due to persistent rumors that Neptune has veered out of its orbit and will collide with Earth. The cause of the rumors will be an excess of suspiciously reassuring updates on "Neptune's unchanged orbital status" leading the public to conclude "they must be covering something up."

Nonsense! There is no cover-up! Because there is nothing to cover up! Neptune was nowhere near the scene of the crime when those murders were committed! It was sedately and innocently orbiting in its usual place in the usual fashion! Also: what murders? Neptune hasn't heard of any murders and neither have I.

Betelgeuse will not go supernova. I know because Scott Manley said so.

But I hope it does.

I predict that this city is headed for a disaster of biblical proportions. I'm talking Old Testament, real wrath of God type stuff. Fire and brimstone coming down from the skies! Rivers and seas boiling! Forty years of darkness! Earthquakes, volcanoes...The dead rising from the grave! Human sacrifice, dogs and cats living together... mass hysteria!
