->''If you're a normal kid, reading this because you think it's fiction, great. Read on. I envy you for being able to believe that none of this ever happened. But if you recognize yourself in these pages-if you feel something stirring inside- stop reading immediately. You might be one of us. And once you know that, it's only a matter of time before they sense it too, and they'll come for you.''

** In the Appollo Trails series, Appollo mentions that that the Aztec god of the sun can help keep the sun spining in this absence.



** ''The Lightning Thief'' has a scene where Percy jumps from the top of the Gateway Arch straight into the Mississippi River. Considering that the Arch is a hundred yards or more from the river under ordinary circumstances, with some wide concrete walkways, a huge 64-step grand staircase, and a road in between, he'd need a hang glider to achieve this. (See [[http://www.palmbeachbiketours.com/wp-content/uploads/2010/05/St-Louis-Riverfront-and-Arch-10-17-2004_5604.jpg this photo]] for reference.) Even during flood season, the closest the river has ever been to the Arch is halfway up the staircase

** In the first book, Percy's stepfather, "Smelly" Gabe, treats both Percy and his mom like dirt. Thankfully, [[spoiler: Sally Jackson uses the Medusa head from Percy on Gabe, sells the statue, and gains enough money from it to go into writing]].

* EmbarrassingLastName: Gabe ''Ugliano''? Keeping a rebellious streak aside, there's absolutely no way Percy's mom would have sacrificed her maiden name for that surname. Good thing he gets what's coming to him at the end.
