* In ''Theatre/MyFairLady'', Henry's wife advises him [[BanOnPolitics not to talk politics]] and to "stick to two subjects: the weather and your health". These days, with increased political polarization, not even the weather (climate change) and health (the anti-vaxxer movement) are immune from heated debate.

* Though it's basically a footnote in American history now, there was actually a brief period during the WarOf1812 when a radical faction within the United States' Federalist Party [[http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Hartford_Convention#Secession seriously advocated]] ''New England'' [[OlderThanTheyThink seceding from the Union]] and becoming an independent nation. So, yes, [[UsefulNotes/TheAmericanCivilWar "the Yankees" actually tried to secede from the Union about half a century before anyone else did]].

* [[http://claudeelkhal.blogspot.fr/2015/03/jacques-chirac-lookalike-is-eighteen_3.html A French museum harbours a 18th century Japanese mask which looks uncannily like former French president Jacques Chirac]] (or rather like his puppet in ''Series/LesGuignolsDeLInfo'')... it's actually the mask of a powerful evil demon called Ôbeshimi. For more hilarity, Jacques Chirac is well known for having fondness for Japanese culture and art.

* The Leader of the Nazi [[Ghostapo Ahnenerbe]] Organization, Herman Wirth, was fired by Heinrich Himmler (among other reasons) for stating the idea that in the future, germany will be ruled by a woman which would be called the "great mother". Angela Merkel, who is the german chancellor since 2005, got the nickname "Mommy" or "Mother". Thus, in a certain way, Wirths prediction turned true.

* ''VideoGame/GuiltyGear Xrd -sign-'' was famous for a visual style that many felt was impossible for the Unreal Engine. That was before Unreal Engine 4, famous for it's versatility in both visual aesthetics possibilities and platform useability (showcased by [[https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=6KOZJLOx0bo Epic Games releasing a mobile app in the form of a Flappy Bird clone]]), was released to the public.

* UsefulNotes/WaltDisney saw ''Literature/{{Pollyanna}}'' make less money than expected, and [[http://query.nytimes.com/gst/fullpage.html?res=9B0DE6DD123DF936A15753C1A961948260&sec=&spon= commented]], "I think the picture would have done better with a different title. Girls and women went to it, but men tended to stay away because it sounded sweet and sticky." Decades later, Disney executives would use ''the exact same'' logic to justify the retitling of [[Disney/{{Tangled}} one of the CGI films]], which came off the heels of [[Disney/ThePrincessAndTheFrog another underperforming film with a "girly" title]].
