* [[https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=jJ3rndjje30 This ad for MLB 12: The Show]] depicts the Chicago Cubs winning the World Series and all of Chicago celebrating, even the Pope himself, before eventually cutting to a sobbing Cubs fan in his room with a PS3 controller. In 2016, the Cubs finally made it to the World Series, only to choke against the Cleveland Indians in Game 7.

* After the Columbia space shuttle broke up during re-entry, one of the items recovered in the debris field was [[http://www.nasa.gov/columbia/media/Media_Resources_Archives.html the videotape that was being recorded in the cabin as they were re-entering]] (this was standard procedure on shuttle flights). The final critical minutes were missing (presumably because the outer layers of the tape on the take-up reel were damaged), but fifteen minutes into the recording, as the glow of the plasma caused by atmospheric re-entry becomes visible through the cabin windows and lights up the interior, Pilot Willie McCool says, "This is amazing, it's really getting fairly bright out there", and Commander Rick Husband jokes, "Yeah, you definitely don't want to be outside now"... A few minutes later they were.
