This Is a Harbinger of Things to Come
I have become convinced that we're in a parallel universe that split off from our main universe right around the conclusion of the Republican primaries. In this new bizarro universe, Donald Trump has a decent chance of becoming President of the United States and the Chicago Cubs just won the World Series. What else is possible in this strange new world? Pointless Venture would like to speculate.
Within the next year, Disney will decide to remake the original Star Wars trilogy using former Mouseketeers.
Soon, we'll get hoverboards and flying cars like Back to the Future promised us.
Anytime now, aliens will visit the earth. They will demand to see the Ancient Aliens Guy, and Giorgio A. Tsoukalos (the dumbass with the crazy hair) will become the High Counselor to the United Federation of Planets.
Global warming will be revealed to have been a Chinese scam, in that the Chinese are responsible for most of the world's pollution.
Vladimir Putin will say "Fuck it," and open up a moonbase complete with sharks that have laserbeams attached to their heads.
They will remake Frank Herbert's Dune and it will be awesome.
Cold fusion will be mastered and we'll get all that cool future-tech we always wanted.
Hitler will be resurrected as a cyborg by a joint project headed by Russian scientists and Trump supporters. The world will be united in taking down the new Nazi/Russian/Trump menace.
Scientists will discover that we are living in a supercomputer generated simulation, and no one will stop looking at their mobile phones long enough to give a shit.
Half-Life 3 will just show up on Steam unannounced and it will be the greatest game of all time.
The Cleveland Browns will win the Superbowl next year.
The earth's magnetic polls will switch places, resulting in all sorts of zany highjinks.
How I Met Your Mother will be erased from the collective memory of the human race, and we will all be better for it.
Poop will stop smelling so bad, and we'll know what dogs see it in.
