Simpsons World Cup Goes Viral

So the Simpsons actually cannot predict everything

Simpsons World Cup Goes Viral

The 2018 FIFA World Cup in Russia has thrown everyone off guard more times than Neymar has thrown himself on the ground. Fans from around the world have been shocked to see many things such as watching 2014 World Cup Champion Germany lose their first game to Mexico, Messi who is considered the World's Best Player missed a penalty shot, and Russia gave a shocking performance in their first game after leaving the score against Saudi Arabia to be 5-0. Brackets everywhere are in the trash because their predictions are not adding up with all the surprises being given in each game.

However recently through social media, especially Twitter, a clip from Season 9, Episode 5 of the Simpsons has been trending. In the episode, the World Cup final is between Mexico and Portugal. No one knows what to expect the final to be, but the Simpsons have been good at predicting some life-changing moments. Such as in Season 11, Episode 17: Bart to the Future in 2000 when they predicted Trump winning the presidency and then sixteen years later it became real life. Bart had seen the future in which Lisa is president and it is mentioned that they have "inherited quite a budget crunch from President Trump." Or when in Season 10, Episode 5: When You Dish Upon A Star in 1998 when there is a scene in which the sign of 20th Century Fox has at the bottom "A Division of Walt Disney Co." Then nineteen years later Disney reached a deal to acquire $66.1 billion-worth of Fox. Coincidence? Maybe yes or maybe no, but it was enough proof to have people in their seats to believe that maybe they have predicted a World Cup Final.

Sadly the prediction is set wrong as of noon on June 27th in year twenty eighteen. Poor Mexico broke their winning streak after playing Sweden today. The final score was 0-3 with Sweden being the grand winner of the game and Group F of the World Cup. If Mexico had beaten Sweden the outcome would have been different since they would have been first in the group, therefore increasing the probability that the Simpsons can predict the future.

Do not lose hope though! Because the World Cup Final prediction could be set for 2026 which will be in North America. If you look more into the Simpson's episode the final game is set in Springfield which is an "any town" in the United States. There have already been rumors that the World Cup final will be in MetLife Stadium which is located in East Rutherford, New Jersey. Mexico will be one of the countries to host the World Cup so to see them at the final is not completely unrealistic and Portugal's player Cristiano Rolando will be 41 years old, so 2026 could possibly be his last World Cup. So this prediction still has a possibility of coming true, we will just have to check back on it in eight years. But for 2018, what country could possibly be the FIFA World Cup Champion?

For as long as I can remember, I have been listening to The Beatles. Every year, my mom would appropriately blast “Birthday” on anyone’s birthday. I knew all of the words to “Back In The U.S.S.R” by the time I was 5 (Even though I had no idea what or where the U.S.S.R was). I grew up with John, Paul, George, and Ringo instead Justin, JC, Joey, Chris and Lance (I had to google N*SYNC to remember their names). The highlight of my short life was Paul McCartney in concert twice. I’m not someone to “fangirl” but those days I fangirled hard. The music of The Beatles has gotten me through everything. Their songs have brought me more joy, peace, and comfort. I can listen to them in any situation and find what I need. Here are the best lyrics from The Beatles for every and any occasion.

Small towns certainly have their pros and cons. Many people who grow up in small towns find themselves counting the days until they get to escape their roots and plant new ones in bigger, "better" places. And that's fine. I'd be lying if I said I hadn't thought those same thoughts before too. We all have, but they say it's important to remember where you came from. When I think about where I come from, I can't help having an overwhelming feeling of gratitude for my roots. Being from a small town has taught me so many important lessons that I will carry with me for the rest of my life.

I can't say "thank you" enough to express how grateful I am for you coming into my life. You have made such a huge impact on my life. I would not be the person I am today without you and I know that you will keep inspiring me to become an even better version of myself.

Dealing with the inevitable realities of college life.

Course registration at college can be a big hassle and is almost never talked about. Classes you want to take fill up before you get a chance to register. You might change your mind about a class you want to take and must struggle to find another class to fit in the same time period. You also have to make sure no classes clash by time. Like I said, it's a big hassle.

This semester, I was waitlisted for two classes. Most people in this situation, especially first years, freak out because they don't know what to do. Here is what you should do when this happens.
