First of all: I will go as hype as never before in this article and whenever you think it goes too far – it doesn’t. 2016 was the year of surprises. Most were unfortunate. BUT YOU LIKELY MISSED THE BIGGEST ONE. A positive one at that! The unlikeliest surprise of all (and by that I do mean unlikelier than Trump and all that other stuff): […]
