    Depends on when you asked me, I guess. In 1984 I thought we were going to have a nuclear war before I was twenty. That’s a pretty morbid thought for a newly minted teenager.

    I still can’t believe that real estate prices are what they are. They don’t make any goddamn sense. I don’t even think I can figure out who to blame or thank for that, really.Report

    I was convinced for the longest time that Britney Spears would fall into one or more very messy public sex scandals, and shortly afterwards become Born Again in a very public sort of way, disavowing the sex-kitten-like ways of her past.

    I thought Gitmo would be closed and some tamping-down on the US government’s security obsession and indiscriminate spying on its citizens. I thought the US would have pulled out of Afghanistan within 1-2 years of killing bin Laden. I though I’d be able to stop being frightened of the leviathan south of the border.
