The Simpsons (Simpsons Family) is one of the most classic animation series in the world, attracting millions of viewers thanks to its humorous and extremely creative script. Released for the first time in 1989, the series has aired a total of 31 seasons, with about 22-25 episodes per season, and the latest episode has just ended on May 17.
The Simpsons is one of the oldest television series in the world, and is especially famous for its ability to predict the future quite accurately.
Besides, The Simpsons is also known for its ability to predict the future quite accurately in many fields, with many events in the film that later became a reality. Some examples include Disney’s acquisition of 20th Century Fox, the discovery of three-eyed fish, the outbreak of the Ebola pandemic, the introduction of auto correct and smartwatch, or even spoil the scene of the dragon Drogo in Game of Thrones alone burning King’s Landing in episode 5 season 8.
This makes many viewers curious whether the series also contains other predictions that may come true or not? No one dared to assert with certainty, and the same could not explain why the production team possessed the ability to see through such a peak timeline. However, based on the development of the world today, here are 13 details that can happen in the future.
In a 2005 broadcast, Professor Frink created a strange machine that allowed Bart and Lisa to see their future in 2013, and it was not very beautiful: Marge decided to leave. his husband Homer just because he used all his savings to buy an underwater house and a flying car.
In fact, in 2017, Renault has launched a concept of a 4-wheel vehicle capable of moving in the sky, called “Float”. In addition, it can easily change direction without having to turn. The same technology is being used by Elon Musk’s Tesla company for the design of the Hyperloop bullet train.
And this is a futuristic “Float” concept vehicle.
Use music to manipulate the minds of others
In the 2001 episode of The Simpsons, The Simpsons shocked many parents with the idea of using music to control the minds of teenagers. In it, Bart and his friend were manipulated by a group with dark messages attached to their songs, especially the hit “Drop Da Bomb”. In fact, there have been many conspiracy theories that show that music, especially lyric music, is completely capable of brainwashing others.
Virtual reality food
In The Simpsons, time travel takes place like a meal and it’s not uncommon for longtime audiences. In an episode going to 2030, we saw Homer and Marge and their couple wearing virtual reality glasses and having dinner together, of course, the food was not real either.
In fact, Royal Caribbean restaurant is currently applying the form of serving customers with VR meals, with just one bite, you will enjoy a different kind of flavor. A food researcher at Cornell University once had the opportunity to participate in the experience and identified the flavor of the cheese as being more intense and delicious when enjoyed in virtual reality mode.
Man conquered Mars successfully
In one episode, Marge and her daughter Lisa signed up for a one-way trip to Mars, although she herself did not want it at all and even invited the whole family to join to persuade Lisa to stay. In the end, this trip could not start, but Marge and her mother still have the opportunity to set foot on Mars in 2051. At this time, Lisa “turned up the test” to move to Venus to live.
In fact, perhaps the most ambitious person to conquer Mars in the world, none other than billionaire Elon Musk. His SpaceX company is currently researching and producing vehicles that can carry essential goods and supplies onto the red planet, which is expected to succeed in 2022.
In one episode, Bart used a pager with the ability to create three-dimensional illusions to get his band’s booking schedule. In fact, hologram is a technology that has been pursued by many big companies for a long time, and can be applied widely to many different types of devices such as phones, computers, … They even created a 3-sided holographic display called HD3, which is currently being installed in over 500 different Best Buys stores for $ 2000 each.
It is unknown whether in the future, we can own these interesting hologram messaging devices. But if it is, its price will certainly not be “chestnut” at all.
The disappearance of clean energy
In episode 582, Lisa successfully built a solar powered vehicle to participate in the Alternative Energy Derby race. However, Duff Company “cheat the game” by covering the entire sun and causing Lisa’s vehicle to stall when preparing to finish. This can be seen as a hidden message about the problem that big companies (such as Duff) will ruin the process of applying natural energy for their own benefit.
Large-scale environmental disaster
The movie, “The Simpsons Movie”, released in 2007, revolves around an environmental problem on a large scale, and proposed a solution that seems unrealistic at all. In it, Homer dumped pig manure into Springfield Lake and caused serious pollution that led to a major natural crisis. To deal with this situation, the President ordered the construction of a giant glass dome covering the entire town of Springfield.
The first foreign president of the United States
The President who loved to build the domed house above was Arnold Schwarzenegger – The one-time destroyer of the world movie industry. Arnold was the 38th governor of California and possessed a lot of political knowledge. However, because he was born in Austria (although he still has American citizenship), it is difficult to participate in the Presidential election because the Constitution of this country stipulates: “Only US citizens who have been born in this country, or have lived here for at least 14 years, can run for president.”.
Donald Trump’s daughter will also become President of the United States
During the 2016 film season, The Simpsons also predicted that the eldest daughter of the incumbent President Donald Trump will also run for the position in the future, namely in 2028. Next to 2017 , they continued to put Ivanka in politics when she replaced Ruth Bader Ginsburg to become Assistant Justice Judge of the US Supreme Court.
ABC of America will merge with a series of major television channels
This is a small detail in The Simpsons that few people pay attention to. On Lisa’s wedding day, a TV broadcast showed that ABC had merged with a series of major television stations to become CNNBCBS (including at least 3 very prestigious news agencies, CNN, CBS and NBC). In fact, movie studios, media companies and many TV channels have been in the same house many times, so this is quite a possibility in the future.
The revolt of robots
During the 2012 film season, The Simpsons showed a world heavily dependent on automation, thereby enabling robots to replace humans in many jobs and start rebelling. Further in 1994, the Homer family even witnessed the ruthless robots killing people mercilessly when they went to an amusement park together to have fun. Jürgen Schmidhuber, known as the father of AI, has also expressed concern that the technology will soon surpass human intelligence and could cause a permanent change in human civilization within 30 more years.
Big Ben becomes a huge super electronic clock
In Lisa’s wedding episode, which aired in 1995, the audience once again traveled to 2010 with the destination of ancient England. In particular, there is one small detail that few people pay attention to, is the famous Big Ben clock tower has been equipped with electronic screens, no longer running mechanically as before. Currently, Big Ben is temporarily suspending operations to carry out repairs, maintenance and will only return in 2021.
Bigfoot really exists
Bigfoot, also known as Sasquatch, is a mysterious creature that no one has ever dared to confirm whether it is real or not (similar to the Loch Ness monster). It was described by “witnesses” to be similar to large apes with brown fur, 2 – 3m high with a weight of about 230 kg, big eyes, low forehead and very unpleasant body odor. Bigfoot is an omnivore and mostly active at night.
In an episode in 2002, Homer was mistaken as Bigfoot when he fell into a mud puddle causing his whole body to be covered with a hideous brown color that made everyone startled. However, the plot twist is that when people think that everything is okay, Bart, his son, has the opportunity to encounter this magical creature, made of flesh and bone.
