Somehow, in some way, the animated series always manages to predict real life, just as it did during the now-concluded 2018 Winter Olympics. It happened twice. The first was when Team USA won the gold medal in curling, an unlikely victory that's sure to be a movie one day. The second happened when a rogue squirrel ran onto the snowboarding slope and only narrowly escaped death. References from two very separate moments in the show popping up during the same live event?

Apple hasn't announced an iPhone X Plus yet, but this might be its glass

Will 2018 bring Apple fans a follow-up to the company's $1,000 flagship, the iPhone X, from last year? A newly glimpsed chunk of glass suggests it's possible.
