One thing is for certain—there was life before 2020 and life after 2020.

Between political polarization and the ongoing COVID-19 pandemic, it's safe to say that humanity is tired.

We're all tired. And you know what, reality just doesn't seem like it makes sense anymore.

So what could happen now?

It's 2022 and the world seems crazier than ever. There are so many possibilities.


People shared their thoughts with us after Redditor Novaresident asked the online community:

"With the 2020s going down the history as 'the roaring what the f*cks' what event wouldn't surprise you if it were to happen now?"

"Contact with aliens..."

"Contact with aliens, except it's not from above but from the oceans like a B-movie."

SatynMalaphany

Oh, that'll be the day. The ghost of Michael Crichton would be so pleased.

"That we are currently..."

"That we are currently in The Bad Place."

Jason figuted it out? JASON? That hurts.

"The Hunger Games..."

"The Hunger Games become reality."

monkeyworld_M

I volunteer you for tribute! You just appear so much braver than the rest of us, you know?

"Influencers..."

"Influencers going to Ukraine to film themselves on the battlefield. I don't know why but I see it coming."

CylverLOL

I'd be surprised if that isn't happening already. Humanity annoys me.

"Aliens apologizing..."

"Aliens apologizing for throwing rocks at earth."

CatzyCat

The dinosaurs weren't too happy about that one.

"Celebrities..."

"Celebrities could start giving their babies plastic surgery and I wouldn’t be surprised."

GothTwinkie

Funny... didn't we all just assume this is already happening?

"I'm not a conspiracy theorist..."

"I'm not a conspiracy theorist, but on multiple occasions I've thought that if I were trying to prepare humanity to accept intelligent alien life visiting us, I'd probably bombard the human race with every f*cking crazy BS scenario that exists so they that they'd be so exhausted they wouldn't care."

"6 years ago my brain would have melted seeing aliens, but at this point if aliens showed up I'd probably shrug and turn the news off."

Bosticles

Many people would probably switch the channel to see what else is on TV.

"The Winds of Winter..."

"The Winds of Winter actually being published."

jjc157

Hey, hey!

At least try to stay within the realm of theoretical possibility.

"Scientology collapses..."

"Scientology collapses and everyone in it goes to Scientology rehab to get over the trauma."

HenriDuPont

Leah Remini would have a field day.

"We all find out..

"We all find out that we are just some alien kid’s 7th grade science project."

Honestly, this sounds like the ending for Under the Dome, and Stephen King really pissed off everyone with that ending.

Hey, at least we can laugh at ourselves.

It's highly believed that it is important to learn history as a means to improve our future.

What is often overlooked is that what is taught in history class is going to be very different depending on where you went to school.

And this isn't just internationally, even different regions of the United states will likely have very different lessons on American history.

This frequently results in our learning fascinating, heartbreaking and horrifying historical facts which our middle or high school history teachers neglected to teach us.

Redditor Acherontia_atropos91 was curious to learn things people either wished they had learned, or believe they should have learned, in their school history class, leading them to ask:

What isn’t taught in history class but should be?

So apparently we are in the endemic phase of this nonsense.

We have light at the end of the tunnel.

So what now?

Where do we go from here?

Normal seems like an outdated word.

How do we get back to normal though?

Is it even possible?

What are reaching back to?

Life pre-Covid.

Those were the days.

If only we could bring them back.

Redditor hetravelingsong wanted to discuss our new normal in this hopeful "endemic" phase. So they asked:

"What’s something random you miss about pre-COVID times?"

What do you believe?

Is there a GOD in the sky?

Is he guiding us and helping us?

Life is really hard. Why is that is a big entity is up there loving us?

Atheists have taken a lot of heat for what feels like shunning GOD.

What if they've been right all along?

Maybe let's take a listen and see what they really think.

Redditor __Jacob______ wanted to hear from the people who don't really believe all that "God" stuff. They asked:

"Atheists, what do you believe in?"

The list of what irritates me is endless.

I mean... breathing too loud or dust can set me off.

I'm a bit unstable, yes.

But I'm not alone.

So let's discuss.

Redditor Aburntbagel6 wanted to hear about all the times many of us just couldn't control our disdain. They asked:

"What never fails to piss you off?"
