Since the other 2019 thread got locked...

There will be no progress on connecting I-70 to the PA Turnpike in Breezewood in 2019.

A certain poster whose name I will not state won't stop ignoring forum rules about political content and won't stop being an incorrigible boor.

(I suppose, since the thread is "things that WON'T happen, I should say this individual WILL start obeying the rules and WILL learn some manners, right? That way, I'm naming things that won't happen.)

Things I can say for certain won't happen in 2019:

A US federal election of any kind (President, House, Senate).
A leap year.
The Summer and/or Winter Olympics.

Only if you don't play.

I wouldn't argue with someone who says that not playing isn't the only to not win the lottery.

(Whew!  I think I got all those negatives to balance out correctly.)

It can be like playing Global Thermonuclear War at times.  Sometimes the best move is not to play.

....

Is it certain there won't be any special elections this year to fill vacancies in the House or Senate?

I believe it's possible there could be a special election for a House or Senate seat under the right set of circumstances.

It's the only way to be 100% sure you won't win.

Whenever people at work pitch in on a big jackpot, there are always a couple of people in my department who say they would split their winnings with everyone else in the department (there are only a few of us).  So, even not playing, I'm still not 100% sure to not win.  However, by not playing, I am 100% sure to not be out any money.

I wonder how many of those arrangements actually end in a substantial jackpot being split amicably.

Also, I hope no one thinks buying, say, 20 tickets improves your odds significantly over buying one.  Or even 100 tickets.

True. Trump also will not get impeached. Have to wait till 2020 to get rid of him barring some unforeseen consequence.

Things I can say for certain won't happen in 2019:

A US federal election of any kind (President, House, Senate).
A leap year.
The Summer and/or Winter Olympics.

This year there should be Spring Olympics :bigass:.
