We don’t know how, but writers for The Simpsons seem to be scary accurate when it comes to predicting the future. Maybe the plant seeds in our minds or put things out into the universe… and they come to fruition? From Lady Gaga’s Super Bowl halftime show to Donald Trump becoming president, The Simpsons write in scenes that seem to come true.
The latest example is Disney reaching a deal to acquire 21st Century Fox… which was previously predicted by an episode of The Simpsons back in 1998.

Being on the air for over 27 years, the chances of things coming true increase… but the show’s predictions are creepily close.
Any other predictions from The Simpsons you can think of?
