In the 1960s, few jobs seemed as glamorous as being a Playboy Bunny. These waitresses, who worked in the very exclusive and secretive Playboy Bars, were stylish and beautiful and earned wages big enough to buy their own homes in a time when women still lacked financial autonomy. But beneath the visage, this gig wasn’t as glamorous as it looked. It was hard to get and even harder to keep; Bunnies had to follow some very strict rules. Each was even given a pamphlet that detailed all these rules... and we’ve managed to get a closer look at that fascinating document.

But none of us can really ever predict what’s going to happen years from now... or can we? There have been many attempts over the years, some more outlandish than others. Sometimes, though, it’s the craziest prophecies that turn out to be true. Let’s look at the times humans have made predictions about the future than turned out to be eerily accurate.

In reality, though, the real world isn’t fiction, and there was a lot more to their harrowing experience than the authorities and media initially wanted people to believe.
