The Simpsons predicted Bitcoin


At this point, who can doubt that the Simpsons really predict the future? The evidence is there. There are not one, two, three or five events that the Simpsons have successfully predicted. But there are dozens of them, all with millimeter precision that make us think of Matt Groening more as a fortune teller than as a screenwriter. And the Simpsons even predicted Bitcoin, and now the murderous hornets.

Did they really predict cryptocurrencies?

Of course, I understand that as soon as you read the last sentence, my dear reader, you raised your eyebrows suspiciously, without believing that the yellow family really has such advanced predictive powers. “Come on – you say without believing me yet – it could be that they did a couple of things, but Bitcoin? Impossible”.

Although your skepticism about reality is understandable, I am sorry to tell you that you are wrong: The Simpsons did indeed predict Bitcoin. And they didn’t do it a couple of years before Satoshi Nakamoto released the Bitcoin white paper in 2008. No, no, no, that would be too easy for the Simpsons.

It was in 1997 (that is, 11 years before Nakamoto), when the Simpsons announced the arrival of the crypto world. So, in a scene from the dean American television program, we could see Homer and Marge strolling in front of shops of … you guessed it, crypto.

Eleven years before Blockchain technology appeared on the public’s radar and twenty years before Bitcoin achieved the success it has today.

Coronavirus and Killer Hornets: The Simpsons Do It Again

Impressive isn’t it? But this is just a small taste of the Simpsons’ predictive power. Well, from Donald Trump’s victory in the US presidential election, to the German triumph at the 2014 World Cup, the purchase of 20th Century Fox by Disney, and even the iPod, everything was predicted by the Simpsons.

“Well, I am not impressed – you are still skeptical – after all, with so many episodes behind him, it is logical that from time to time they hit something. And this is, my dear reader, the main argument of those still do not finish believing in the powers of the Simpsons.

However, if you think the abilities of the yellow family are no better than those of a fairground tarot reader, perhaps you should think about the Simpsons’ big prediction in 2020: the Coronavirus.

That’s right, when even the scientists in China still did not dream about the possibility of the Coronavirus being born, and a disease like COVID-19, born in Asia, but arrived in the West, it was the subject of an episode of the Simpsons … of 1993 .

What did they predict?

It was on May 3, 1993 when this episode of the Simpsons was first released. In it, Homer places an order with an Asian factory and, when it arrives in the United States, surprise: it came with a virus. It spread rapidly throughout Springfield, affecting inhabitants without any defense against it.

But okay, let’s admit that at the end of the day this is an easy plot, that maybe any Simpsons writer came up with while ate a hamburger Made exercise. However, what follows cannot be a coincidence.

And, as soon as the Asian flu spreads through Springfield, the inhabitants rush to the hospital. Where Dr. Hibbert not only tells them that there is no cure, but recommends the only possible solution to stay home and rest.

Immediately, frightened villagers did the only sensible thing in that situation: riots. Pulling down a truck that had a shipment of murderous hornets that, and now if you can not deny the powers of the Simpsons, is just the situation that has occurred this week in the United States.

Check and kill, dear reader. Not even with all your skepticism can you deny that the fact that in 1996 an American television program predicted the arrival of an Asian virus, followed by an invasion of murderous hornets, is at least suspicious.

So, it is time to assume reality: The Simpsons predicted the Coronavirus, Bitcoin, and we had better pay attention to them if we want to know what the future holds for us.
