The question was closed because it was in the opinion of the content being a "baiting-like" nature. Ultimately the Fun-Friday threads on StackOverflow were started because there really is no "Discussion Board" for StackOverflow. However, as Jorge Castro points out in the original Fun-thread-friday post - we do have a discussion board, the Ubuntu Forums.
The question - in question - is much better suited for a discussion board - because each post will most likely stir a torrent of comments of people discussing about each of the "strangest" and "most controversial" things, in addition the 2020 question just barely falls in the scope of this site ( a more straight forward "fun" question - with short, decisive answers - and on topic with this site ).
In the end - the goal and aims of this site should be to become THE authoritative place for Questions and Answers about Ubuntu. I know questions like this, and the 2020 question, help build the community in being able to cut-loose. Though with the addition of the Chat Room I imagine that would be the best place to loosely discuss things of this nature.
However, do not feel defeated - Enough people of this community thought it should be closed, that's not to say that even more people could want it opened. You - and most everyone else of this community - has the power to vote to reopen the topic. As it stands if it's reopened then the Community has helped to further define the scope of questions for this site. It's within your power - and the power of the community - to do that.
