I don’t mean to be a huge downer, but you have to admit that the world is kind of a HUGE dumpster fire right now.
Not only are we going through a once-in-a-lifetime health crisis, but we have killer hornets to deal with, incompetent politicians, and all kinds of other bad news on a daily basis.
But did you know that in the past, people and even some pop culture icons predicted what would happen in 2020?
You don’t believe me?
Here are some examples that we think you will find very surprising.
1. Didn’t see this one coming…
By the way, don’t drink the bleach.

I hope the FBI is watching this guy.
