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!

Campaign Slogan Of The Decade, Too!

A bunch of people will officially announce that they are running for president. Spring of 2019 will be the "sweet spot" for fundraising.

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.

There are few things more satisfying than a crisp $20 bill. Well, maybe a crisp $100 bill.

But twenty big ones can get you pretty far nonetheless.

Whether it's tucked firmly in a birthday card, passing from hand to hand after a knee-jerk sports bet, or going toward a useful tool, the old twenty dollar bill has been used for countless purposes.

I realize that school safety has been severely compromised and has been under dire scrutiny over the past decade and of course, it should be. And when I was a student, my safety was one of my greatest priorities but, some implemented rules under the guise of "safety" were and are... just plain ludicrous. Like who thinks up some of these ideas?

Redditor u/Animeking1108 wanted to discuss how the education system has ideas that sometimes are just more a pain in the butt than a daily enhancement... What was the dumbest rule your school enforced?

One of the golden rules of life? Doctors are merely human. They don't know everything and they make mistakes. That is why you always want to get another opinion. Things are constantly missed. That doesn't mean docs don't know what they're doing, they just aren't infallible. So make sure to ask questions, lots of them.

Redditor u/Gorgon_the_Dragon wanted to hear from doctors about why it is imperative we always get second and maybe third opinions by asking... Doctors of Reddit, what was the worse thing you've seen for a patient that another Doctor overlooked?

When we think about learning history, our first thought is usually sitting in our high school history class (or AP World History class if you're a nerd like me) being bored out of our minds. Unless again, you're a huge freaking nerd like me. But I think we all have the memory of the moment where we realized learning about history was kinda cool. And they usually start from one weird fact.

Here are a few examples of turning points in learning about history, straight from the keyboards of the people at AskReddit.

U/Tynoa2 asked: What's your favourite historical fact?
