5 predictions in The SimpsonsBy Vika https://pictolic.com/en/article/5-predictions-in-the-simpsons
They are able to see the future and predict world events. We do not speak now about fortune-telling and astrology. We talk about one of the most popular cartoon series of all time - The Simpsons. The Simpsons are the longest-running American cartoon series. The first series was released on December 17, 1989. The series tells about the life of the Simpsons family and is based on humorous characters. Moreover, some jokes and episodes of the series became true.
1. Smartwatch (episode Lisa's Wedding, March 19, 1995).
When this episode aired, not all people had computers at home, and mobile phones were the size of a shoebox. However, Lisa's lover Hugh Parkfield wore a smartwatch with which he could call his family. You can watch The Simpsons online to see how similar this device is to the current Apple Watch. But this is not the only prediction. We continue the list.
2. Letter from the Beatles (Force of Art, April 11, 1991).
In the episode, Beatles drummer Ringo Starr responds to letters from fans who wrote him decades ago. In 2013, two fans of the Liverpool Four received a response from Paul McCartney to their taped message. The message was written down and sent 50 years ago.
3. Broken voting machine (Little Treehouse of Horrors 19, November 2, 2008).
In the episode, Homer tries to vote for Obama, but the machine counts the vote in favor of the opponent. In 2012 during the election, several people who voted through automatic machines for Obama said that the machine gave their vote to Mitt Romney.
4. Donald Trump is the president. (Bart in the future, March 19, 2000).
After the victory of Donald Trump in the elections, this picture circled the Internet. In the episode, Trump's victory was indeed predicted, but in the episode, Lisa was the president, but Donald Trump was her predecessor.
5. 911 (New York v. Homer Simpson).
Of course, this is more of a coincidence than a prediction. But you have to admit, it's a rather creepy coincidence. Everyone knows about the attacks on the World Trade Center on September 11, 2001. In the photo, Bart is holding a magazine that advertises a cheap bus ride to New York for as little as $9. And next to the nine is the silhouette of the World Trade Center, the silhouette of which can also be regarded as the number 11.
