There’s a certain pleasure we all get in getting to tell someone, “I told you so” and, hopefully, that pleasure only comes from saying it about good things.

It doesn’t make me happy to tell my son, “I told you so” after he smashes his head against our ottoman tray, even though I warned him a bunch of times about the dangers of jumping off the couch and onto surrounding furniture with reckless abandon.

And if ghosts are a thing, I’d like to think that the people mentioned in this AskReddit post are saying, “I told you so!” from beyond the grave. These historical figures were either ignored or blasted as being straight-up crazy for their views, but ultimately had their theories/ideas legitimized after the fact.
