This motherfucking year. I mean, we were already on the express train to Fuckedsville even before COVID reared its spiky head and turbocharged this shit, this 2020, these 12 months that felt like a generation burnt up and was gone. Think about it: Even without coronavirus and the economic collapse that accompanied it, we’d have had the Black Lives Matter uprising, the climate-driven conflagrations out West, the friggin’ impeachment of our goddamn president (yeah, that was this year), the election, and the deaths of both Ruth Bader Ginsburg and Chadwick Boseman (I know, but that one hurt particularly badly). Jesus fuck, I’m nauseous writing all that out, and that’s just in the United States. You wanna talk Australian fires? Brexit? Other weather shit in Pakistan, India, and elsewhere?
