* [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=FCFlkBAr-xU&lc=4irJSUIJHEirtV39ZN_dhv4NVDCB0ASwzqpuYIrqDys&feature=inbox In 1979, the famous French humorist Coluche joked about the left-wing party rising to power in 2012]]. The man died in 1986. Come 2012, France elects left-wing President Francois Hollande after seventeen years under right-wing governments.
** What makes it even more hilarious is that French Presidents are now elected for a five-year term. In 1980, the presidential term was 7 years. ''There would not have been a Presidential election'' in 2012 by 1980 reckoning.

* In ''Wizard Magazine'' #112 (January 2001), there's a funny little comic about the employees discussing possible directors for the ''Film/SpiderMan1'' movie. Copy Editor Andy Serwin thinks Disney should make it believing Spider-Man is for kids. Eight years later, Disney owns Creator/MarvelComics, and there are plans for an animated Spider-Man movie (though it'll be released by Creator/SonyPictures).

* Loki from Myth/NorseMythology is a jotun, or troll. During the the age of the Internet, the term "{{troll}}" took on a whole new meaning: a person who sows chaos and discord (sometimes ForGreatJustice, sometimes ForTheLulz), which is Loki's raison d'être. But wait, it gets ''better:'' trolls are known for "flaming" others, and guess what color Loki's hair is? Here's a hint: one of his kennings is [[EvilRedhead "Flame-Hair."]] Bow before your god, all ye Internet trolls.
