1. A Baby Elephant
These babies aren’t exactly baby-sized, that’s for sure. These 200-pound tots take up to two years to develop before they’re born.
2. The Sagrada Família to Get Finished
This insanely ornate and ambitious work of architectural art has been a work in progress since 1882 and is projected to be finished by 2026. By then, those hundreds of years of prayers inside the cathedral should surely be answered!
3. Season Tickets for Your Favorite Football Team
The Gridiron Greats in Green Bay have a waiting list that’s 30 years long, and over 80,000 cheeseheads still choose to patiently stand by for that portion of their precious lifetime.
4. A Total Solar Eclipse
Even rarer and more opposite than once in a blue moon, the sun won’t spend an astronomical totality (seven minutes) in the shade until the year 2150.
5. A Perfect 10
No gymnast has achieved flawless perfection in an international event since 1992. Maybe someone would hit it after all this time if there were bonus points for flexibility.
6. Another Line of Perfectly Unified Date and Time
Set your superstition alarm for 2/2/2022!
7. True Pi Day
Sure, the mathematical wonder is commemorated every year, but 3/14/2015 will be the one day in our history when its initial digits will coincide in perfect succession.
8. The Most Delicious of Cheddar Cheeses
Salty good, and only a 15-year wait to taste the absolute best there could possibly be.
9. Driving in the Sky
Legitimate vehicles that fly and drive are being developed and showcased as we speak, but don’t count on actually getting behind the wheel anytime soon.
10. Your Favorite Legendary Band to Reunite
Ever heard of the term “indefinite hiatus”? Even in this age of “surprise” reunion tours, there’s a crazy amount of talented holdouts that haven’t played or recorded together in decades.
