23 Times 'The Simpsons' Accurately Predicted The Future

By Mustafa Gatollari

If you've been a longtime viewer of The Simpsons, then you know that the writers they pick for the show are basically clairvoyant.

Now maybe you can just chalk it up to humanity being predictably ridiculous, or the fact that the show's been around forever, so the writers are bound to cover everything that's going to happen in the scope of past, present, and future history, but there are some seriously impressive social phenomenons that the show's got right on the nose. 

Here are some of the craziest ones. 

1. The USA Men's Curling team winning Gold.

S21E12: "Boy Meets Curl" depicted Homer and co. taking home the Gold medal in curling during the Winter Olympics. 8 years later, the US Olympic men's curling team would do just that in Pyeongchang. But what's really crazy is that they accurately predicted the Silver medalists from the 2018 games as well.
