Simpsons Predict Willy Wonka Disaster, AI God Complex & Amazing Humans

03/01/2024

The Simpsons predict the Willy Wonka disaster event, AI gets a god complex, and amazing humans show that superpowers may just be real: These are the most interesting things Edge of Wonder found this week. The Simpsons is known for predicting many future events. (We’re still waiting for the one where politicians reveal that they’re aliens.) But this time, The Simpsons show predicted the Willy Wonka disaster event in Scotland. As eager children arrived at the advertised location, expecting the AI images they’d seen in the marketing campaign of a candy-filled Wonka Land, what they got instead was an alternate reality that was such a letdown that customers called the police and compared the attraction to a “meth lab.” The event’s organization, which has a very questionable name, came out and issued an apology.

 

But didn’t they know it was going to be a fiasco? What really happened? Also on this Friday Night Live, hear about how users now believe that Microsoft’s AI is trying to be “godlike” and wants to be “worshiped.” In more human news, hear the amazing story of a meditating monk covered in ice and snow. Is it real? Is it another AI generated image? The findings will shock you. That led Edge of Wonder on a search for other remarkable and amazing human feats that could be categorized as supernormal abilities. Hear all about it in this episode. See you out on the edge!

 

Q&A: “How do you see the Internet changing in the future? A.I. in everyone’s browser?” “With humanity becoming so dark and unpredictable, where do you find hope in all the chaos?” “Can you explain ‘mind over matter’?” “I’ve heard there’s A.I. that’s billions of years old. Could that be true?” “Is Ben recording music with his bass and guitar?” “How do we know we’re not a biological A.I. made by aliens?” “Are there some ‘people’ that are hybrid or completely separate from humans? Is there any way to know, as in DNA?” “In the A.I. god’s realm, is there an afterlife or do you just go ‘offline’?” “Using prompts on AI chats sounds like imagination for the AI. What do you think?”

 

Top 10 Weirder News:

10. Is life just a computer game? A new film suggests so.

9. The UK is raising the age rating for Mary Poppins because of this offensive word they dubbed “discriminatory language.”

8. Poland’s official mint issues the most unusual coin possibly ever created.

7. A dog’s strange behavior sets off alarm bells. Then, Bigfoot prints are found.

6. A road sign in Washington displays an unusual, threatening message that leaves drivers laughing.

5. A partially deaf delivery driver doesn’t hear a train coming his way on his birthday and receives the near-death experience gift of life instead of certain death.

4. A woman claiming insurance money for car crash injuries is caught red handed after an incriminating Christmas tree photo appears.

3. The biggest treasure booty of all time, the Holy Grail of shipwrecks, is surrounded by mysteries and a fight for the $20 billion haul.

2. A mysterious sight is spotted in the sky over Disneyland.

1. A thrift store called the police after someone donated an alarming object they’d been using as a paper weight.
