Apparently The Simpsons Predicted The Ebola Outbreak Too

With every devastating event comes the inevitable crackpot theory about who knew what and when, and today’s fun theory comes via the internet: The Simpsons predicted the Ebola outbreak. How do we know this?! Well, during one of the 554+ episodes ever written for the show, The Simpsons made a throwaway joke about Ebola (a children’s book called Curious George and the Ebola Virus ). And according to YouTube person Thecontroversy7, the 1997 episode foretold the Ebola outbreak thusly: “check out the date the episode aired October 19 that is 911 in reverse – this is a marvelous video – great research – great work – also 1997 that is “8” which is the Ebola virus 911 – 8. “no coincidence there baby!!!!” he added: Is there something we are not being told? Is it by pure chance & coincidence that the Simpsons would do predictive programming? There has been numerous predictions from The Simpsons which revealed futuristic events which came to pass. What of the Ebola recurrence in 2014? Is it planned or is it just by natural means? Ebola was not in the 90’s, but it happened long ago in the mid 70’s… But The Simpsons reveal in late 90’s Ebola virus… Interesting right? By that logic, Jesse Pinkman from Breaking Bad was in on the conspiracy, too : Jesse Pinkman: When you say it’s contamination. I mean, I’m thinking like… an ebola leak or something. Walter White: Ebola. Jesse Pinkman: Yeah, it’s a disease on the Discovery Channel where all your

ATLANTA (AP/CBS4) — A second American medical missionary stricken with the often deadly Ebola virus is expected to be flown Tuesday to the U.S. for treatment, following a colleague who was admitted over the weekend to Emory University Hospital’s infectious disease unit. Top American public health officials continue to emphasize that treating Nancy Writebol and Dr. Kent Brantly in the U.S. poses no risks to the public as West Africa grapples with its worst recorded Ebola outbreak in history. Writebol is an Evergreen High School graduate whose family now lives in North Carolina. Nancy Writebol (credit: sim.org) “The plain truth is that we can stop Ebola,” said Dr. Tom Frieden, director of the U.S. Centers for Disease Control and Prevention, speaking Sunday on ABC’s “This Week. “We know how to control it: hospital infection control and stopping it at the source in Africa.” Brantley and Writebol served on the same medical mission team that was treating Ebola patients in Liberia. Also spreading in Guinea and Sierra Leone, the outbreak has infected more than 1,300 people in West Africa, killing at least 729 of them. Liberian officials said a medical evacuation plane would transport Writebol to the United States early Tuesday. Information Minister Lewis Brown told The Associated Press that the flight was expected to leave West Africa between at 1 a.m. and 1.30 a.m. local time Tuesday. Brantly arrived Saturday under the same protocol, fl
