6. NSA Listening to Everyone:

In The Simpson Movie, which was released in 2007, Lisa says that the state secretly listens and observes them. Then we see the National Security Agency building, and we see many agents listening to ordinary people's daily conversations. If you remember, we learned that this was true when Edward Snowden unveiled the government's surveillance system in 2013.

4. Invention of Tomacco:

In Season 11 Episode 5, aired in 1999, Homer created the plant of the "tomacco" by hybridizing tomato and tobacco using nuclear energy. This must have impressed Simpsons fan Rob Baur so much that he decided to create his own plant. In 2003, he produced the first real tomaccos by grafting tomato branches into tobacco roots just like Homer.
