Probably on my laptop
I want to express my firm opinion that the ZB method will transform cubing.
In 2020 many people will have switched to ZB, and start to have consistent sub 9 averages.

But then again, some people thought this back in 2003, as evidenced in the yahoo speedsolving group, but enthusiasm quickly died down.

So, there's a good chance I'm completely wrong.
Remember when Chris said this back in 2010

Interesting, but none of these will ever happen except for 4BLD

2x2 is possible, 4x4 single is do-able but would be really hard.
The others I do think are unrealistic, at least for 2020. They could be beaten in the far future at least.
Nah 4x4 is also very unrealistic, there currently hasn't even been a sub-19 single. Also 2x2 single sub-0.35 is nearly humanly impossible.
