* In 1977, long before the book ''NightAtTheMuseum'' was ever published, a commemorative book from the Smithsonian opened with an essay titled "I Wonder What Happens At Midnight", about everything in the museums magically coming to life after closing time. In 2008, ''Night at the Museum 2'' came out, with that exact premise.

* One {{Nickelodeon}} special from January 2004, just after the Spirit and Opportunity rovers landed on Mars, featured two celebrities having five minutes to build any sort of contraption out of some random materials on a table. One guy made a very dumpy-looking car-like thing out of straws and gum, with waffles for wheels. When the host asked him what it was, he said "A Mars rover." "Do you think this thing could really go to Mars?" "This is the one that's been having problems." (Spirit had a computer problem at the time.) During this exchange, the thing starts to fall apart. Flash forward six years, and Spirit and Opportunity are still roving, despite being made to last only 3 months.

* At the 1998 Tony Awards, Gregory Hines preceded the presentation of the Best Featured Actress in a Musical award by discussing previous winners and how any of the nominees could go on to become legends as well. Doubly hilarious when you consider:
** The winner was Creator/AudraMcDonald for ''Theater/{{Ragtime}}'', who Hines might not have known had already won two Tonys and definitely didn't know that she'd go on to win another three, making her the first actress to win Tonys in every acting category. So, not only did she become a legend, she was kind of a legend already.
** One of the nominees was a young woman from the show ''High Society.'' While she hasn't won a Tony since, I'd say Creator/AnnaKendrick [[Franchise/{{Twilight}} has]] [[Film/PitchPerfect done]] [[Theater/IntoTheWoods alright]] [[Theater/TheLastFiveYears for]] [[Film/UpInTheAir herself]].

* Creator/ChrisRock starred in a movie called ''Film/HeadOfState'', in which his character runs for the (2004) Presidency as a long shot and wins. Fast forward to 2008.

** God only knows how many people joked about how he would ''[[TemptingFate never]]'' be President, including Barack Obama and Jon Oliver.
** In 2012, he [[https://twitter.com/realdonaldtrump/status/266038556504494082 tweeted]] "The electoral college is a disaster for a democracy." In the 2016 election, he lost the popular vote, but won the electoral college and the presidency -- retweets for that tweet surged following the annoucement. Whether that proves his original tweet right or wrong [[RuleOfCautiousEditingJudgment is a topic best left to other sites]].

* Creator/MitchHedberg joked about being a stubborn UsefulNotes/McDonalds owner that had restaurants that served spaghetti instead of hamburgers and cheeseburgers. In TheNewTens, [[http://www.weirdasianews.com/2010/03/23/blank-interesting-menu-items-mcdonalds-asia/ spaghetti]] was added to the menus of some [=McDonald's=] restaurants in the Philippines.

* The USAF revealed in January 2010 through Jane's that they are modding Sidewinders for air-to-ground usage. Funny how all those arcadey flight-action titles like ''AceCombat'', ''Afterburner'' etc. had us using [[AKA47 ersatz Sidewinders]] for multirole purposes well before this, eh?

* When Creator/DonaldTrump campaigned for President of the United States in 1996, he went under the Reform Party platform. He found it disturbing that the people that were running alongside him in the Reform Party included a Klansman and a Communist. 20 years later, Trump's Presidential campaign (as a Republican) found endorsements from both the Ku Klux Klan and North Korea.
* Speaking of Trump, God only knows how many people joked about how he would ''[[TemptingFate never]]'' be President, including Barrack Obama and Jon Oliver.
