Five Bad Things That Didn’t Happen in 2016 (That I Know Of)

So 2016 was a giant kick in the balls, but it probably could have been worse. Here’s my list of things that didn’t happen in 2016, but probably could have, based on the way things went. Perhaps you’d like to contribute to the list?

  1. The Big Rip.
  2. North Korean-initiated nuclear exchange.
  3. High-mortality airborne-vectored virus infects humanity.
  4. Distant, unseeable Oort cloud object nudged out of its orbit, now on long-term collision course with Earth.
