Well the "Bad Judgment" module you linked to claims:
This module provides an explicit dependency for modules whose usage requires bad judgement. Joke modules often require "bad judgement".
So I wouldn't take that version number too seriously.
From the core download page you linked to:
Placeholder for the Drupal 9.x release. Not intended for actual use by anyone except the issue queue version selector.
It's just a placeholder for the next version (forward-thinking and all that). It doesn't mean there's anything wrong with Drupal 8, and it doesn't mean Drupal 9 will be out any time soon.
