15 Craziest Conspiracy Theories from TV & Movies

The Simpsons Predicts...Everything

The Simpsons is one of the longest-running TV series that’s still running. The show debuted December 17th, 1989 and is still going strong.

Conspiracy theorists claim that they’ve been predicting the future rather than just guessing what could happen. Some of the scariest, most accurate predictions include Trump running for president (aired in 2000), Bengt Holmström winning a Nobel Prize (aired in 2010 and happened in 2016), and the 2014 Ebola outbreak (aired in 1997). All of those were right on the money, but we’re not ready to say they’re psychics yet.
