* Likewise, the presence of black cowboys in recent westerns. Many cowboys in TheWildWest in the 1870s-90s were freedmen. It is their ''absence'' from the classic [[TheWestern Western]] format of the '30s through early '60s that is inaccurate. This omission is hinted at in ''The Cowboy Way'' through one of the two main characters' skepticism concerning the existence of famous black rodeo performer Bill Pickett. Then again, very few characters in Westerns are actually cowboys, i.e., they don't drive cattle to market to earn their living.

** The "dark web" is intentionally hidden from standard access methods (such as HTTP addressing), and often requires some specialty protocol to read. While not everything in the dark web is criminal in nature, a lot of it is either illegal or only marginally legal -- hacking toolkits, online gambling, counterfeiting and fraud, drugs, and, yes, porn. Supposedly there are sites out there that are basically eBay and Craig's List for drugs and mercenaries.

* Sleepy Hollow, from [[Literature/TheLegendOfSleepyHollow the Washington Irving tale]], is a [[https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Sleepy_Hollow,_New_York real village in upstate New York]] and it resembles the story version in most ways, except for the actual existence of a Headless Horseman. The town certainly celebrates the tale's lore though, especially around Halloween. The Van Tessel family, including Catriena, were real as well. Ichabod Crane was the name of an army captain that Irving met before writing the story.

* A major plot point in the first ''Franchise/AceAttorney'' game was the Statute of Limitations on an old murder case being almost up. Just another aspect of the series' ridiculous KangarooCourt, right? No, [[http://www.loc.gov/law/foreign-news/article/japan-statute-of-limitations-for-murder-abolished/ Japan really did have a Statute of Limitations on murder until 2010.]]

* In one of [[Creator/StuartAshen Ashens]]' 80's toy videos, he reviewed a toy that came with a story on cassette tape. He dragged out an actual tape deck to play it, and fast-forwarded through the tape in order to find the interesting bits. Several of his younger viewers were surprised to discover that cassette tapes actually ''do'' make a high-pitched, garbled noise when fast-forwarded, and that it wasn't just a sound effect invented by foley artists.
