    The Simpsons didn’t predict the monorail? Technically true, but I would like to propose the following word for your consideration: Hyperloop

    But yeah I’m fairly sure the amazing predictive powers of the Simpsons is basically an internet meme, so people want in on that bandwagon for fun and thus aren’t going to be all that critical when looking for the meme fodder. A good question is how many and how deeply actually believe it – and a better question is if there’s Simpsons Augurs out there who genuinely try to tell the future using old Simpsons episodes.
