4 Times Rick and Morty Predicted the Future



If you’ve never seen the adventures of mad scientist Rick and his sidekick/grandson Morty before, be aware that there be spoilers. Rick and Morty is a chaotic mess of sci-fi, fantasy, drama, and comedy tropes that have captured the hearts of different generations.

In fact, its producer Adult Swim has had no trouble adapting games for the show, such as Virtual Ricka-lity, Rick and Morty’s Rush Licensed Adventure, and Pocket Mortys. Even online games have cashed in on the show’s versatile themes and tropes as well. On gaming site Gala Bingo, online slots like Wubba Lubba Dub Dub and Rick and Morty Megaways show just how far the show’s influence has come. And these games continue to attract different players today, further widening the show’s already huge influence on pop culture.
Created by Dan Harmon, the show is like a cross between the dramedy of Community, the movie Back to the Future, and the long-time animated series The Simpsons. It even comes with its own eerie predictions for the future. As the show comes up on its 5th season, let’s take a look at the times in which elements from Rick and Morty made their way into real life.

Biohybrid Battery

In an old episode called “The Ricks Must Be Crazy,” Rick’s ‘car’ (spaceship) breaks down in a parking lot. To fix the problem, Rick transports himself and his grandson Morty into the car’s battery, which turns out to be an entire micro-universe. Inside what Rick calls the microverse, it is revealed that his car battery is actually a small universe powered by microscopic organisms. Today, biological batteries are a real thing. Spearheaded by researchers at Karlsruhe Institute of Technology, our own cars and gadgets could soon be powered by a biohybrid battery that utilizes electricity-generating bacteria.

Virtual Reality in Prisons

Aliens capture Rick in the episode “M. Night Shaym-Aliens!” When he later ‘escapes,’ he finds out that his experience of escaping was all part of the alien prison’s simulation. Nowadays, actual prisons in states like Alaska and Pennsylvania are experimenting with virtual reality for rehabilitation and re-entry training. And the results of using simulations on prisoners have been promising.

Penis Transplant

After accidentally eating a deadly alien microbe out of a tub of ice cream, Morty’s dad and Rick’s son-in-law Jerry are taken to an advanced alien hospital in “Interdimensional Cable 2: Tempting Fate.” Here, we get a glimpse of the future of surgery, as an alien doctor approaches Jerry with a shocking request. They want to cut off his penis and use it to replace the dying heart of an alien hero-politician. It sounds insane until you realize that both organs are involved in blood circulation. No such procedures have been performed in real life. But after the episode aired, there have been a handful of successful penis transplants both in the U.S. and South Africa. And Massachusetts General Hospital could soon do the first penis transplant for sex-reassignment surgery.

Consumerism and the Pandemic

In “Never Ricking Morty,” our heroes are stuck on a ‘story train,’ a meta-universe of literary tropes. When they get out, it’s revealed that it was a toy train that Morty purchased for Rick, prompting the sidekick to apologize. But Rick is not having it. Instead, he praises Morty’s act by eloquently ranting a satirical ode to consumerism, adding that Morty did a patriotic service as “nobody’s out there buying anything because of this virus!” It’s just a short bit at the end of the episode. But it was a spot-on take on how some experts would later insist on keeping the economy thriving at the expense of people’s lives.
Given how accurate and strange some of these predictions are, we can’t help but look forward to the next season of Rick and Morty. For more strange facts and theories about the future, follow Planet Today.

Private Jets Headed To Global Warming Conference “Literally Frozen On Runway”




world leaders spoke at a ‘global warming’ conference in Dubai, located
in the heart of the Arabian Desert, discussing the usual: banning gas
stoves, cow farts, and petrol-powered vehicles, a powerful snowstorm
grounded all flights at Munich Airport in Germany. 

“Private jets
in Munich on the way to Dubai global warming conference are literally
frozen on the runway, which has turned into a glacier,” said Ryan Maue, a
meteorologist and former NOAA chief scientist.

All flights have been canceled at Munich Airport. 

Munich Airport traffic usually looks like on a Saturday afternoon
compared to today as the airport has closed due to heavy snowfall. MUC
is expected to reopen tomorrow at 0500 UTC.

Nearly 600 flights at MUC canceled today.

If not in years, Munich might have received the most significant snowfall on record. 

With 44 cm left on the ground this morning, Munich, Germany has officially experienced its biggest December snowstorm on record.

Another inconvenient truth… 

Europe hasn’t seen a snow cover like this since 2010—60% is blanketed in white! ❄️

world leaders actually believed in global warming, they would’ve not
flown private jets to the desert. Furthermore,  having a global warming
conference in an area where it snows is just bad optics for these
virtue-signaling elites.

Gaza war worsening climate change threats, says Jordan’s king




Jordan’s king said Friday that war was making the threats from climate change even worse in the Gaza Strip, as hostilities resumed between Israel and Hamas after a week-long truce.

King Abdullah II told the UN’s COP28 climate talks in Dubai that “we
cannot talk about climate change in isolation from the humanitarian
tragedies unfolding around us”.

“In Gaza, over 1.7 million Palestinians have been displaced from
their homes. Tens of thousands have been injured or killed in a region
already on the front lines of climate change,” he told a gathering of
world leaders.

“The massive destruction of war makes the environmental threats of water scarcity and food insecurity even more severe.

“In Gaza our people are living with little clean water and the bare
minimum of food supplies, as climate threats magnify the devastation of

The Gaza war has been a major talking point at COP28, where
delegations from around the world will try to hammer out a fresh
agreement to tackle the climate crisis.

The conflict flared after Palestinian Hamas militants killed about
1,200 people, mostly civilians, and kidnapped about 240, according to
Israeli authorities, in an unprecedented attack on October 7.

In response, Israel vowed to eliminate Hamas and unleashed an air and
ground military campaign in Gaza that the Hamas government says killed
around 15,000 people, also mostly civilians.

Iran’s delegation walked out of the COP28 talks on Friday in protest
at Israel’s presence, which delegation chief Ali Akbar Mehrabian said
was “contrary to the goals and guidelines of the conference”, according
to the official IRNA news agency.

Israeli President Isaac Herzog is conducting talks on hostage
releases on the sidelines of the conference, while his Palestinian
counterpart Mahmoud Abbas cancelled a planned visit.

Agence France-Presse (AFP) is a French international news agency
headquartered in Paris, France. Founded in 1835 as Havas, it is the
world’s oldest news agency.
