After careful consideration, we have decided that it is no longer in the best interest of everyone involved to proceed with 2020.

While we recognize that a lot of hard work has gone into preparing for 2020, if we're honest it has turned into a bit of a sh*tshow and we feel it is best to just call it off.

We understand that some of you were looking forward to seeing what cruel and peculiar clustercluck of a disaster that 2020 would throw up next but on balance we believe it is probably best not to find out.

We will instead provide ticket-holders with a full refund or an exchange, and start afresh with 2021 on Monday.

Our plan is to deliver a more enjoyable year, similar say to 2016, which everyone thought was the absolute worst year of all time, but in retrospect was a fecking walk in the park.

See you next year.

But .... November elections! We need to chose someone who will replace that guy.

And don't forget about the zero year curse.  Whoever is elected in 2020 will die (or come close) while in office.  So it has to be either someone you don't like or someone who can take a bullet.

 

If we start 2021 on Monday that means the elections will have been held and hopefully anyone not that guy is in office.

We all need a bunker. Just go in the bunker for twelve months, with enough food and computers. Come out to a brave new world.

Start digging tomorrow.

Oh and electricity, cheese and wine

And daylight bulbs, if they still do them.

You want to skip all the excitement and head straight to the depression?

Bush Jr. broke the curse.  Technically Reagan broke it first, so enjoy 4 more years of

The US still has a plague of insufferable "prepper's" shouting "I told you so... You didn't listen...HAHAHAHAHA!" to come yet!  

My neighbor is a prepper.  Has his own well, lots of guns and ammo, claims a year supply of food, and several solar generators and a satellite phone.

Darn shame his well is so easy to foul with arsenic...

At any rate, his taste in emergency rations isn't too bad.

There was that grenade that was launched at the podium in Tbilisi Geogia.  The guy was probably looking to assassinate the Georgian President and Bush just happened to be there.  They both got lucky that the grenade didn't go off.  So Bush didn't really come close to dying, but there was that slim chance.

Y'know, we've faced all this before. The village of Eyam in Derbyshire is our plague village.

At the end of the current pandemic, we'll either be dead, or thinking it wasn't so bad. But it's insanely worrying.

https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Eyam

The history of the plague in the village began in 1665 when a flea-infested bundle of cloth arrived from London for the local tailor. Within a week his assistant George Vicars was dead and more began dying in the household soon after.

As the disease spread, the villagers turned for leadership to their rector, the Reverend William Mompesson, and the ejected Puritan minister Thomas Stanley. They introduced a number of precautions to slow the spread of the illness from May 1666. The measures included the arrangement that families were to bury their own dead and relocation of church services to the natural amphitheatre of Cucklett Delph, allowing villagers to separate themselves and so reducing the risk of infection. Perhaps the best-known decision was to quarantine the entire village to prevent further spread of the disease.

The plague ran its course over 14 months and one account states that it killed at least 260 villagers, with only 83 surviving out of a population of 350. That figure has been challenged on a number of occasions, with alternative figures of 430 survivors from a population of around 800 being given. The church in Eyam has a record of 273 individuals who were victims of the plague.

Survival among those affected appeared random, as many who remained alive had had close contact with those who died but never caught the disease. For example, Elizabeth Hancock was uninfected despite burying six children and her husband in eight days. The graves are known as the Riley graves after the farm where they lived. The unofficial village gravedigger, Marshall Howe, also survived, despite handling many infected bodies.

The village's actions prevented the disease from moving into surrounding areas.
