Before the Sun sets on the first day of 2020 Trump will have said or done something that will greatly upset an extraordinary number of people. This will likely happen repeatedly throughout the following 365 days as well.

Violent assaults on Jews in the US will continue to rise for a time, before leveling off and then dropping again.

Monkeys, who have been plotting for years now, will finally attempt to take over the world. Much poo will be flung.

Trump will be re-elected.

Edited to make clear I think this would be a terrible thing, but I really do think it will happen.

Trump will lose the popular vote and the electoral college, file many lawsuits, and the Supremes will rule in his favor and declare him President for Life. Democrats will be rounded up and shot.

Just keep them away from a multitude of typewriters and we'll be fine. Otherwise it'd be Tragic.

Alrighty folks, long time no see. Let's begin:
  • Playstation 5 will be commercially available by November 2020
  • Donald Trump will be arrested, but not for the crime he's being impeached for
  • California will be on fire a lot
  • Scott Morrison is going to be removed from office
  • I will secure gainful employment in time to purchase a PlayStation 5
  • Jacinda Ardern will hold on to being Prime Minister, barely
  • There's gonna be another mass shooting in the USA. Barely counts as a prediction at this point.
  • There's going to be an attempted mass shooting in New Zealand or Australia
  • Air-conditioning will be involved in an attempted 'act of terror'
  • Cyberpunk 2077 will receive critical acclaim, followed by backlash from the alt-right for 'propaganda'
  • Some nationalist group or other will protest the release of Watchogs Legion
  • Some crappy reboot will be destroyed in cinemas
  • The first "Internet Streaming Cable Packages" will start hitting the mainstream

The rapture will occur on February 13th, 8:11. All the sinners (gamblers, fornicators, drug takers) will be condemned to Hell, and all the innocents (the sober, the chaste, those with utmost humility) will be taken off to Heaven where they can live a joyful eternity of praising the LORD.

I bet you a million dollars it happens!

Sorry, you have condemned yourself to hell. You have expressed a willingness to gamble where you cannot win. If the rapture happens then you cannot collect. If it does not happen then you lose.

How about a rank outsider? There has been 6 PMs since John Howard lost his seat in 2004. None faced more than one election as PM. The longest was Julia Gillard who lasted 3 years 3 days. The main people will not want the job, as they will lose the 2021 election.

I just heard from Neptune Orbitwatch! They agree with the other top Neptune orbit monitoring agencies like Neptuniac, Neptune's Orbit, Fly In Circles Ol' Neppy, and the other fifty leaders in the industry that Neptune's orbit is, at this very instant, exactly where we'd expect it to be. Thousands of dedicated Neptune orbiteers are carefully observing the situation and will spring into instant action should any deviation be detected.

But consider giving these hardworking organizations some help. A small donation from each of us can help fight the good fight and keep the watch steady! Contact your local government's Office of Neptune's Orbit to request a list of verified Neptune's orbit monitoring charities. With over 35,000 registered nonprofits worldwide dedicated solely to this vital task it has never been easier to give. And further---wait! Wait! OMG, they just detected a massive---

Nevermind, false alarm. Neptune's orbit continues as it was. There was a bug on the lens.

If anyone's found Neptune's orbit, please return it to Neptune immediately. It was last seen in a McDonald's, ordering a 20-pack McNuggets but requesting no dipping sauces. This is alarming on many levels. Wheels within wheels, something sinister is afoot.

Russia will hack the 2020 election in such an obvious manner that it will make it necessary to annul and repeat it, after election security can be established - which will take months.

2,020 predictions seems like a lot of predictions to make. I can maybe give you 5% of that number.

1. The swelling will go down soon.
2. You won’t believe your eyes.
3. Rain's on the way.
4. Soon, all the kids will be doing it.
5. You'll shoot your eye out.
6. You're not going out dressed like that.
7. That's going to sting tomorrow.
8. If you don't bother it, it won't bother you.
9. It sure ain't gonna happen on my watch.
10. You'll save some money now, but it'll cost you more in the long run.
11. You're doomed.
12. That kind of glue won’t work on those materials.
13. If you cook it on high, it'll come out tough.
14. Stop that, or you'll break it.
15. It'll get worse before it gets better.
16. You're going to regret this.
17. You'll find it in the last place you look.
18. If you keep scratching it, it won't get better.
19. It'll cost more to fix it than to buy a new one.
20. Time will tell.
21. Your luck's got to change sometime.
22. Those batteries have been in the drawer so long, they're probably dead.
23. Tickets are sure to sell out fast.
24. We're not getting out of here alive.
25. There's never one around when you need one.
26. That dog won't hunt.
27. We're in for a spell o' weather.
28. You'll be sorry.
29. The pendulum will swing back the other way sooner or later.
30. You'll thank me later.
