The Simpson’s Predict the Future Over and Over

The Simpson's Predict the Future Over and Over

Cameron Sivadon, Staff Writer


The Simpsons is a long-running animated comedy focused on the eponymous family in the town of Springfield in an unknown U.S state. The head of the Simpsons family, Homer, is not a typical family man. A nuclear- plant employee, who is also a part time alcoholic. In many episodes there are hints about real-life future events long before they have actually happened. Trumps presidency, the discovery of the Higgs-Boson particle (which is a “god particle” that explains how stars, planets, and the sun have developed mass), and 9/11. The producer of the Simpsons, Al Jean, says that the future is not that hard to predict.
