The Simpsons Predicted the Rise of Greta Thunberg – The Simpsons are known as the show that predicts the future

The Simpsons are known as the show that predicts the future. They knew that Donald Trump will become President and … Active, they also expected the rise of Greta Thunberg. 10 years ago. In the seventeenth episode of the twentieth season, “The Good, the Sad and Drugly,” Lisa was assigned to write a report on what Springfield will look like the year 2059. When she discovered online reports on soap used in the drink instead of water, a world war on a small drop of oil, lots of parking still fill for ever, and the last polar bear suicide, she was filled with anxiety and depression and terrified classmates with dark visions of sea level rise of global warming, transforming humanity and plains in a desert and darkness falls on Nineveh. Sounds familiar?

After the speech of the UN Thunberg, people started comparing the tone for the presentation of Lisa, and you can not really blame them for that. Some have even taken further, saying that Greta is the version of the real life of Lisa. And it is not far-fetched, too. Think about it, Lisa is a thinking intelligent young, outspoken girl who is not afraid to important subjects, no matter how many adults try to silence. It is the most important activist of the entire show. Kinda the same way that Greta is now ours.

Why Are American School Buses Yellow?

The American yellow school bus is an institution in the world. Those outside the United States who do not see the view on the street certainly on television, with characters like Otto in The Simpsons.

Colors not only add to the aesthetic appeal of things, but they also make our life much easier in many ways. Take traffic lights, for example; how do you, if instead of the red-yellow-green light system, they flashed messages written on a screen telling you to stop or leave? It may be good for some people, but for the majority of citizens, color coding does a better job. This is just one of many cases where colors make things more convenient for us.

School buses, as we all know, have a big responsibility riding on their shoulders yellow; carrying millions of students in school and on a daily basis … that is a huge responsibility. Think about it, they transport future presidents, technology assistants, innovators, sports … they are essentially an entire generation of humanity inside. Needless to say, they must be very careful wherever they go.

Therefore, these buses are not only designed to protect passengers in an accident, but also present a remarkable appearance to make it difficult for anyone to miss, with their characteristic yellow color.
School buses are not pure yellow!

Many of you might be surprised to learn that the color of school buses in the United States are not in reality pure yellow; it’s a whole different shade! It is a blend of orange and lemon yellow, as the color of a mango … very mature.

Why is it so recognizable? Because of the bright yellow color, a standard for school transport across the country. The man who put the idea in people’s minds was Frank W. Cyr, educator and author of Nebraska. Call a meeting at the University of Columbia in 1939, Cyr aims to reinvent the art of getting to school. He took the road itself, traveling through 10 states to assess the situation. The results are random concern.

A Russian television channel is reportedly producing a series to challenge HBO’s Chernobyl

Moscow Times, writer Ilya Shepelin states director Aleksei Muradov is working with Russian network NTV on its own Chernobyl programme.

There is a theory that the Americans had infiltrated the Chernobyl nuclear power plant and many historians do not deny that on the day of the explosion an agent of the enemy’s intelligence services was present at the station.

Shepelin states the competing series will not present the same conclusions as Craig Mazin‘s drama: that a combination of reckless individual actions and the unchecked pride of the Soviet political system led to the explosion of a faulty nuclear reactor in the former Soviet Ukraine. Craig Mazin, the creator of the HBO series, famously obsessed over minor details such as shoelaces and telephones, and adopted first-hand accounts of survivors to authentically recreate the Soviet Union of the 1980s.

NTV’s Chernobyl, filmed in Belarus, takes far more liberties. A description of the show says that the plot revolves around a CIA agent dispatched to Pripyat to gather intelligence on the Chernobyl nuclear power plant and the Russian counterintelligence agent sent to track him down. If it sounds like fiction, that’s because it is. But the director, Alexey Muradov, said the show “will tell viewers about what really happened back then”.

Sky Original’s Chernobyl was dismissed as a “caricature” in Russia by pro-Kremlin media who said “only we have the right to talk about our history”, according to the Moscow Times. There’s no air date for the series but it’ll be broadcast on state-funded station NTV, known for its pro-Kremlin programming. It received 30 million ($460,000) in funding from the culture ministry, the outlet said.

The Simpsons made a bunch of great predictions

    • In 1997, The Simpsons had an episode where Lisa showed a magazine with what looked like a terrible event that would happen 4 years later.
    • One bully was texting another in The Simpsons to “Beat up Martin” on their Newton, a person assistant made by Apple in the 90s. Instead, it messes up and sent “Eat up Martha”. This was a prediction of the autocorrect problem Apple would later have.
    • An episode in 1995 had Lisa talking to Marge through a video chat on her phone. FaceTime was created 15 years later.

Bart Simpson

  • In “Treehouse of Horror XIX” (2008), Homer tries voting for presidential candidate Barack Obama, but the machine switches to John McCain. 4 years later, a machine had been reported to switch the vote from Obama to Mitt Romney.
  • After Homer and his family escaped Springfield in “The Simpsons Movie” (which came out in 2007), the NSA started listening in on their conversations. This is eerily close to what Edward Snowden discovered in 2013.
  • Marge once read the most depressing book ever to Bart: “Curious George and the Ebola Virus”. All the way back in 1997. Wow.

Old Simpsons vs New Simpsons-Thing that’s happened to Simpsons in last 10 years

Mostly everyone can see that the older episodes were funnier, but the Simpsons are still funny.

"Simpsons Did It"

The Simpsons Then and Now

Basically, earlier season’s Simpsons episodes were story-driven. Generally, they were “smarter”. Newer episodes definately are more bizarre, focus less on the story, and are filled with more gags. Still, both the new and old episodes, equally, give us memorable things we can laugh at.

Simpsons Then and Now

New and Old Simpsons

The older shows had heart and morals. The story always had a point. Homer was portrayed as a genuinely decent man who deep down truly cared for his family. He was simple and pretty dumb, but only in an average American kind of way. The Simpsons was a sitcom that just happened to be animated
