* People with Sickle-Cell Disease possess a greater resistance to Malaria, as the ''Plasmodium'' needs red blood cells to propagate their numbers. [[CaptainObvious Of course, that still means you have Sickle-Cell Disease]] and all the painful and debilitating symptoms that comes with it. However, having one allele of Sickle-Cell Disease and one healthy one means you're healthy ''and'' you get a certain immunity against Malaria. The only downside is that you may pass on the Sickle-Cell allele to your offspring and if the other parent also has one, your child might get Sickle-Cell Disease. There's a reason the Sickle-Cell allele is rather common in Africa but rare in Europe.

* [[OlderThanTheyLook Looking young for one's age]] is often seen as a mark of beauty and great physical shape, and something that warrants a compliment. Unfortunately, that same physical youthfulness may also lead to people [[JustAKid not taking the person seriously because youthfulness also implies naivete and lack of wisdom in the eyes of many]].

* The gay male dating app Scruff has a "Global Men" feature that shows off handsome guys from all over the world. And if a moderator likes your picture, you too can be a Global Man, and you'll receive profile visits and messages from countless beautiful men...who live thousands of miles away, so it's impossible to actually meet any of them, much less maintain a relationship. So instead of making you feel sexy, it just becomes annoying. In fact, one feature of Premium membership is to ''remove'' yourself from the global listings.

* Solar panels have been getting better and cheaper at an enormous rate in at recent years. Its a wonder why people aren't buying more of them. Well turns out a big reason consumers won't invest in them is that they because solar panels become obsolete so quickly. Sure you could buy a solar panel or you could save and wait five years and get a much better one.

* There was a study in Russia of a man (left unnamed, referred to as Mr. X in the study) who had [[http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Hyperthymesia hyperthymesia]], meaning he was born [[PhotographicMemory without the ability to forget anything.]] Phone numbers, bank accounts, scripts and books, snippets of conversation, emotions both good and bad, sensations both good and bad... well, you get the picture. He was almost normal until his mid-20s, when the information overload started getting to him. He committed suicide at the age of 32.
** Jill Price is famous for having the same ability as the man above. Initially, the ability to remember everything in your life sounds tremendously useful. Teacher gives a lecture? Hey, no problem, you remember it! Unfortunately, it doesn't work that way. Jill's ability, as with most people who have this, is ''autobiographical memory only''. She can remember that on X date thirty years before she was sitting in a high-school class at 10:15 AM listening to a lecture on history. But she can't remember the lecture itself, she only remembers where she was, what she was doing, what she was wearing, etc. -- autobiographical information. Actual ''useful'' information? No.

** Same goes for the SpearCounterpart. Having a [[GagPenis long schlong]] is pretty desirable, if you can get past the discomfort of keeping it in your pants, having to deal with the occasional unwanted RagingStiffie and the common difficulty of lying down on your stomach, and that is '''if''' a large penis is even properly functional, because since the body can only provide so much blood, beyond a certain size the penis can no longer get erect in a way that it's meant to... thus making sex very difficult, if not downright impossible (as fitting into a partner can also become an issue). And yet, male enhancement is still going strong.

* Having high-end headphones may seem like an obvious blessing, but sound issues such as [[LoudnessWar dynamic compression]] and the inherent drawbacks of lossy sound file formats such as [=MP3=] and OGG become more apparent when you use such headphones, particularly if you also have music with better dynamic range or in lossless formats such as WAV and FLAC. You'll still have better audio experienced than with $10 drugstore headphones using the same sources, but the variations in quality will stand out more.

** Geniuses are ''three times more likely'' to commit suicide than people of average intelligence.

to:

** Geniuses are ''three times more likely'' to commit suicide than people of average intelligence. They are also likely to have death wish, to have dangerous interests or hobbies and take unnecessary (albeit calculated) risks. Most practitioners of extreme sports are extremely intelligent.
** Jesus Christ's IQ has been estimated to have been over 200. After all, he was ready to intellectually wrestle with rabbis and scholars (who are ''not'' stupid) already in his bar mitzva age, and the Gospels give a picture of a highly talented man. He was more or less schlemiel, he has been described to have been single (which is a tragedy in Jewish context), and having been surrounded by nincompoops and outcasts of the society. His apostles had no idea on what he said and preached. The only ones who really could understand him were his enemies. It has been debated whether his execution was a result of an intentional death wish and [[SuicideByCop a suicide by state]].
