At the end of 2015, I posted a short list of some plot-twist thread entries created over the year, and suggested doing the same next year. Well now it's time to do so for 2016. As with last time, I only chose 15, which are listed oldest to newest. Thanks to all those involved, and lets do the same thing next year.

Tom placed a thumbtack on his teacher's chair.
Meanwhile, Tom's teacher was placing a thumbtack on Tom's.
Sarah wiped the make-up from her face.

He only had one to raise.
The space shuttle pilot turned.
At that exact moment, the co-pilot belched right in his face.

Pierce began to wonder if his computer was stolen.
He stared at his empty computer desk, broken window, and ransacked room, as he pondered this.
Harry Potter gave the elf a sock.
Now all the elf needed was the other sock, and a pair of shoes.
Stan gave Roger an ultimatum.
After Roger learned what ultimatums were, he was very upset.
Barry fried his new headphones.
They made a great side dish for his toasted stereo.
Igor lost his train of thought.
Fortunately, he still had his stream of consciousness.
Santa looked to see if Timmy was on the naughty list.
He was unable to tell, as he had not written down any last names, and the world has an abundance of Timmys.
