Top 10 Simpsons Predictions that Haven’t Happened Yet but Could Become a RealityIf you watch the Simpsons and pay close attention you’ll know that The Simpsons are strangely good at predicting future events in society.Knowing they can predict our future Here’s the top 10 predictions that could happen next.
The Top Ten
Maybe it will happen. Oh wait there's no air there so it's not possible
Colonization of Mars is abominable. It should never happened!
In fact, I believe SpaceX is planning to send someone to Mars in between 2019-2025. This could very well be our future. - PackFan2005
This would give me nightmares!
(Lisa Simpson was President of the United States in Bart to the Future, although Lisa would be better off as a doctor or a researcher). A female president with the likes of Hillary Clinton is outrageous and sickening.
Hillary is probably the only woman I don't want to see become president - westofohio
I'd be happy!
It'll happen one day the question is when. - ParasN2000
The Simpsons Movie talked about a lot of really strange things, and some of them might be predictions of future events. One of those things that really stands out is the central theme of the movie: a large scale environmental disaster that forces the country to quarantine Springfield by placing a giant bubble on the town,the bubble thing is a little outrageous and will never happen, but the part about the environmental disaster might just be a major warning to us in the future. Companies are getting more and more careless in the way they do business, and this is having a major effect on our lives, as well as the environment we live in. At this point we all know that global warming is a real thing and a huge issue caused by humans.The Simpsons could be predicting a huge environmental disaster on a scale we've never seen before. - Randomator
This is becoming more and more likely by the day. - PositronWildhawk
I'd be scared if that happened in real life.
I think this might already be happening. I wouldn't be surprised if there we're studies on how certain sounds affect. Those results might be used nowadays in the music industry to get people to either consume more of this type of music or to get them to do other things. - RogerMcBaloney
Some people have said that the episode that featured mind control through music was one of the scariest they have ever seen. It definitely gives you the shivers. What I'm talking about is the episode called "New Kids On The Blecch" which aired in 2001. The plot involved Bart, Milhouse, Nelson, and Ralph becoming members of an all-new boy band called The Party Posse. However the band is actually a psy-ops project by the US Navy to bombard children with subliminal messages. Their hit song, "Drop Da Bomb," features the chorus "Yvan Eht Nioj," which is of course "Join The Navy" spelled backwards. This was meant to be a joke, but how far from the truth is it? Could this be a prediction of the way the music industry is heading? Songs are getting more and more reliant on strange frequencies and bizarre auto-tuning effects. In a society where music has a huge effect Could we be heading towards a world where mainstream music affects our brains, making us do things subconsciously? Who knows? - Randomator
Just because you don't like the music doesn't mean its autotune. You always call music you hate autotune.
This is flipping with nature! We have to tell big companies not to flip with nature!
This prediction involves solar-powered vehicles. In the recent episode "Paths To Glory," Lisa Simpson, being the stalwart inventor she is, invents a solar-powered vehicle. She enters it in a roller-derby, and she is inches away from winning when a Duff blimp blocks out the sun, reducing her speed to zero just before she crosses the finish line. The townspeople gather around the disappointed girl, pointing and laughing at her utter failure. But is there a darker, more complex theme at play here? What we are seeing is the success of an alternate, green and renewable form of energy being sabotaged by a blimp belonging to a large corporate entity: Duff Beer. Could this symbolize the continued suppression of green energy by corporate interests in the past, and continuing into the future in our world? could there one day be a functional solar-powered vehicle that is suppressed by big (oil) business? - Randomator
Another prediction made by The Simpsons involving technology and robots, and although it is similar to the prediction about mass automation, it is much more sinister. This prediction was made in the episode "Itchy and Scratchy Land," which aired all the way back in 1994. The family visits Itchy and Scratchy Land, which is basically a theme park heavily based on Disney Land. The theme park is filled with Itchy and Scratchy robots who are peaceful at first but eventually go berserk, killing everyone in sight. What this episode is alluding to is the eventual "Singularity" of artificial intelligence. For those who don't know, Singularity is the exponential growth of artificial intelligence, up to and beyond the point where it becomes on par with human intelligence. There are many theories about what would happen when machines become smarter than us, but one of the darkest is the prediction that the machines will exterminate humans because they see us as a threat. Although you may think ...more - Randomator
I don't want that prediction to come true. In fact, we need to used articial intelligence to predict when a robot uprising is coming.
To be fair, having a screen so close to your face and having electronics so close to your brain probably isn't good for you in the long term. - RogerMcBaloney
One of the most eerie episodes of The Simpsons tackled the issue of virtual reality. Now, I'm not saying that The Simpsons predicted the rise of virtual reality, as the episode in which the technology was featured came out quite recently, well after virtual reality headsets had come into existence. The thing that The Simpsons has predicted is the dangers of overusing virtual reality technology. The episode was in one of the newer seasons of the show, airing on October 2, 2016, and entitled "Friends and Family." In this episode, the entire town gets all hyped up on the new virtual reality headsets. Bad things start to happen as a result of this, including people being hit by cars because they're walking around wearing their headsets on the street. Eventually the people become so enamored by the fake reality that they lose touch with the real world, becoming totally disconnected from what's around them. Could this happen in real life one day? Could the use of VR become so widespread ...more - Randomator
UHOH I don't use virtual reality and I hate it. - I'm a Millennial.
Another prediction that involves technology is something that TONS of people, especially factory workers, are already extremely worried about: mass automation. For those of you who don't know what this refers to, it basically means creating robots to do the jobs that humans once did. Everyone who works in the fast food industry, the auto industry, and many other lines of work would find themselves completely out of a job. And the experts today say it's only a matter of time before this happens. The Simpsons predicted this way back in 2012, and it featured the ever-scheming Mr. Burns creating a workforce of robots to replace his less competent human employees. The only person left in the entire power plant is Homer Simpson. Could this actually happen? You may be ordering your Big Mac from a robot sooner than you think... Already people in certain industries are beginning to fear replacement by robots. - Randomator
While The Simpsons has proven time and time again that it can predict major world events, the election of certain presidents, and even the deaths of celebrities, perhaps one of the things it predicts most accurately is the advent of new technology. In the past, they have already predicted the rise of devices like smart watches, and many other gadgets. But one of the things they predicted many years ago which is just now starting to gain momentum is 3D projection technology. The prediction was featured in the episode, "Bart To The Future," which aired in the year 2000. In the episode, we see a vision of Bart watching Itchy and Scratchy through a new form of media: a holographic projection which actually interacts with its surroundings, spraying holographic blood all over Bart's walls. We are just now beginning to see the rise of this technology,this technology is nowhere near the levels that were shown on this episode. But Will it get there? Probably. - Randomator
That would be great
All throughout the series there are strange messages that pop up for a second, and then disappear. These almost subliminal messages carry a huge range of different themes. You have to watch The Simpsons very carefully to find them, but rest assured they do exist. And they are anything but meaningless. One message in particular really got people scratching their heads. This was a message that popped up for only a few seconds, and featured Bart spray painting, "I love the breakdown of society" on the wall. Matt Groening himself is an admitted Anarchist - could he possibly know something about a massive upcoming depression or society ending cataclysm? - Randomator
This prediction have already occurred numerous times in history, albeit differently. The Romans, the Ancient Greeks, the Ancient Egyptians, the Mayans, the Aztecs, the Incas, the Ottoman, the British Empire, and so on. Total breakdown of society is part of a cycle. A cycle that revolves in terms of balance. Sooner or later, the current society may breakdown and rose again like a Phoenix.
Corporations, technology, or any other powerful entity enslaving the entire system.
How are things from other planets going to reach earth?
What if they don't want to come to earth?
What if things from other planets prefer to live on their own planet like us and just have their own rockets to visit things in their own galaxy.
Are we just going to forget the aliens? I mean they were also people that had a lot of power.
When no one actually knows what aliens are like.
Besides The Simpsons, The Jetsons predicted it too.
The movie Cars says that too
