As 2019 slowly, but surely, approaches its conclusion, and we get ever nearer to another new year, it's been noticed that next year - 2020 (twenty-twenty) - will contain the individual digits' lowest total since nine years ago, in 2011.

It will also have exactly the same numbers in it as the expression '20/20 vision'.

The year 2020 has astounded experts with the fact that the sum of its four digits will add up to the measly figure of 4, preposterously similar to that of 2011. The previous year, 2010, had gone 'one better', and totalled only 3, whilst, at the very beginning of the millennium, the year 2000 scored only 2!

The world record for this kind of nonsense came all the way back in the year 1000, when things were very different. There were no computers in those days, cars on the roads, or even roads - not roads with white lines, anyway.

They were more like dirt tracks.

20/20 vision is a term used to express normal visual acuity measured at a distance of 20 feet. One can be said to have 20/20 vision, if one can see clearly at 20 feet what one should normally be able to see at that distance, although it's worth considering just who decided what one should normally be able to see at a distance of 20 feet, and where he got his information from.

To conclude this report, it should be noted by people who like to keep track of this kind of thing, that the following year - 2021 - will sound like someone counting, upwards from twenty.

Happy New Year from all at
