* The long pre-final boss cutscene in ''VideoGame/MetalGearSolid2'' discusses the antagonist's plot of using AIs to control and censor information in the digital age in order to manipulate events of the populace. Presumably for the greater good. Cue 15 years later after the game's release and machine learning has been the hot tech topic of the year. And while some of the results are promising, it has led to issues like social media using algorithms to effectively tailor content so news feeds show selective information. While not exactly censoring and controlling it like in ''[=MGS2=]'', it has had similar impact of manipulating people.

* In 2014, U.S. national soccer team's coach [[https://web-beta.archive.org/web/20171013140854/http://ftw.usatoday.com/2017/10/jurgen-klinsmann-2018-world-cup-usmnt-us-soccer-semifinals-bruce-arena-quotes Jurgen Klinsmann]] said that his goal was to get his team to the semifinals of the 2018 FIFA World Cup. He repeated this claim in 2016, but was fired later that year after losing two games in a row. In the end, the U.S. did not even qualify for the 2018 FIFA World Cup after losing their final qualifier 2-1 to Trinidad and Tobago, making it the first World Cup for which the U.S. had failed to qualify since 1986.

* In November 2007, HeathLedger spoke about his sleeping problems, saying: "Last week I probably slept an average of two hours a night. I couldn't stop thinking. My body was exhausted, and my mind was still going.". Two months later, Ledger was found dead in his apartment, and his death was determined to be caused by an accidental overdose of sleeping pills. Due to various accounts from the set and his own room, it's been theorized that the addiction was caused by nightmares caused by trying to get into the Joker's head. Jack Nicholson, who played The Joker in the Burton film, when told of Heath's dead, even said, "Well, [[IWarnedYou I warned him]]."

* Former [[{{UsefulNotes/HerbertHoover}} President Herbert Hoover]] said in a radioed speech on June 29, 1941, one week into [[{{UsefulNotes/WorldWarTwo}} Operation Barbarossa]]: "If we go further and join the war and we win, then we have won for Stalin the grip of communism on Russia... Again I say, if we join the war and Stalin wins, we have aided him to impose more communism on Europe and the world. War alongside Stalin to impose freedom is more than a travesty. It is a tragedy". By 1944-1945, [[SarcasmMode people could say he had seen the future into a]] CrystalBall.
