I don’t mean to be a huge downer, but you have to admit that the world is kind of a HUGE dumpster fire right now.

Not only are we going through a once-in-a-lifetime health crisis, but we have killer hornets to deal with, incompetent politicians, and all kinds of other bad news on a daily basis.

But did you know that in the past, people and even some pop culture icons predicted what would happen in 2020?

You don’t believe me?

Here are some examples that we think you will find very surprising.

1. Didn’t see this one coming…

By the way, don’t drink the bleach.

2. How weird is this?

I hope the FBI is watching this guy.

3. A virus AND killer bees.

As usual, The Simpsons knows all.


4. Might have to rewatch this movie soon…

Very prescient, don’t you think?


5. Great, more killer bees.

Run for it!


6. One of the greatest films ever made.

Okay, not really, but still…

7. Chandler Bing, man of the future.

This is getting weird…

8. What to do with the kids?

Now there’s no escape…


9. This person saw that we wouldn’t be able to congregate in groups.

Let’s hope that this changes very quickly.


10. The big quarantine.

Predicted by the Ed Boys.

11. I remember this movie well.

Another Stallone classic.

12. That’s just odd.

Don’t Touch!

Those are pretty crazy, aren’t they?

Have you seen any other examples of people or pop culture accurately predicting what 2020 would be like?
