2018, or "The Year That Refuses To Die," is surprisingly almost over. October is coming and with it the downhill rush towards the new year. People are hoping for 2018 to end and take with it all the craziness that's happened around the world. Though, the realist in all of us knows 2019 isn't going to be that different. Right?


Reddit user, u/Almost_lucky, wanted to know what 2019 has in store for us when they asked:

What are your predictions for the year 2019?

We're Almost There!

People will start getting everyone psyched up for the new "Roaring Twenties", at which point flapper dresses and speak easies will become common party themes.

Good guys win: Not realistic or within the theme of the show.

Bad guys win: Hey the good guys didn't win! That's way too bleak for 8 seasons!

They will all have campaign slogans that have something to do with 2020 vision.

Unfortunately this is probably the most accurate prediction so far.

The More Things Change...

Astronomer here! One that doesn't get enough attention IMO is New Horizons, the probe that visited Pluto, is going to do a flyby of a Kuiper Belt Object in New Years Day! They just released the flight plan a few days ago, and it's going to go three times closer to the Kuiper Belt Object than New Horizons did to Pluto, so that's gonna be cool!

Even cooler, and to make a prediction here, early results indicate the object is likely either a binary pair of two rocks, or two that are in contact (peanut shaped). My money is on binary, for no real reason beyond I think that's cooler! But I guess we will all find out together on New Years 2019!

...The More They Stay The Same

It will begin in early January. Celebrities will die. Natural disasters will occur. At least one cancerous trend will take the world by storm. There'll be some kind of ridiculous political shenanigans which makes the world collectively even more frustrated.

Euthanasia and physician-assisted suicide refer to, as defined by Medical News Today, as the "deliberate action taken with the intention of ending a life, in order to relieve persistent suffering." It's a controversial topic. As of 2021, active human euthanasia is legal in the Netherlands, Belgium, Colombia, Luxembourg, Canada, and Spain. Assisted suicide is legal in Switzerland, Germany, the Australian states of Victoria Northern Territory, and Western Australia.

But this issue has many passionate supporters who often know what it's like to care for someone who would have benefited from the practice. They told their stories after Redditor Random2328 asked the online community,

"What are your thoughts on medically assisted death?"

Privilege is discussed quite a bit these days, and for good reason. So many people are able to live life longer, more peacefully, and freely than others thanks to factors they had no control over.

The law is a fickle mistress, and it varies from state to state and county to county sometimes. And then there is the blatant hypocrisy of it all.

There are some things that feel like they should be allowed to pass but you get scolded for, like jaywalking, and then there are things like actual robbery in broad daylight, like telemarketers and nothing happens to them.

Make it make sense. It's like taxes, the wealthy know loopholes and the poor go to jail. Shameful.

Redditor u/Xanduh wanted everyone to chat about legal life fails by asking:

What do you wish was illegal?

While the world is a dark and scary place, there would not be a world, or a human race, without inherent kindness.

Kindness always gives you a little thump to your heart that nothing else can truly provide. A rush of knowing you've made someone's day better. And you may change the trajectory of that person's life because of it.
