[[folder:Real Life]]
* Boxers, briefs, and boxer briefs.
* Counting in binary from zero upward.
** [[DontExplainTheJoke Zero, One, One-Zero]]
** Babylonian numerals probably count as well - while they used a base sixty system, their numerals were built from base ten and base twelve subglyphs.
** Really, ''all'' numerical systems are like this. Binary is just the most obvious example because it only uses two digits.
** In spoken French this is especially blatant. The teens past sixteen are ten-seven, etc. When you pass sixty-nine, suddenly there's no seventy, just sixty-ten, sixty-eleven... Then eighty becomes fourscore (lit: four-twenties), and then the nineties are fourscore-(and)-ten, fourscore-(and)-eleven... all the way up to fourscore-(and)-ten-(and)-nine (''quatre-vignt-dix-neuf'')!
*** Not counting Belgium and some areas in France, which use more reasonable numbering for 70s, 80s and 90s.
** China is similar; the numbers after ten are ten-one, ten-two, ten-three, etc.
*** Japanese also (likely because its number system was imported from China - it uses the same kanji for numbers as Chinese), and possibly a better example than French or English because there are no separate words for multiples of ten, like how French uses "vingt" and English uses "twenty"; in Japanese, ten is juu, one is ichi, so eleven is juuichi (ten-one) - two is ni, so twenty one is nijuuichi (two-ten-one) - hundred is hyaku, so two hundred and twenty one is nihyakunijuuichi (two-hundred-two-ten-one).
** Pashto is also like this. Eleven is one-ten, twelve is two-ten, and so on.
*** In some regards, English is like this as well -- 13 = "three-ten," 14 = "four-ten," 15 = "five-ten," etc. -- the pronunciation and spelling has just shifted somewhat over the years.
* Listing compass directions: north, east, northeast, north-northeast, north by east, northeast by north...
* The commonly combined Ninjas and Pirates into Ninjapirates. Or [[InsistentTerminology pirate-ninjas]].
* Venn diagrams.
* The last decades of military aircraft development have brought us things like [[http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Northrop_Grumman_B-2_Spirit stealth planes]], [[http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/MQ-1_Predator drones]], and now [[http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/BAE_Taranis stealth drones]].
* An old joke, boiled down to its essence: "Pretty or ugly?" "Pretty ugly." (Which works in [[LuckyTranslation multiple languages]], including Mandarin Chinese and German.)
** Interestingly, in Russian this joke [[RussianReversal would have to be inverted]], "awfully" ("uzhasno") denoting basically the same thing (superlative of some adjective) in Russian as "pretty" does in English.
** In Chinese, combining the word for "[[InfinityPlusOneSword Spear]]" with the word for "[[ArmorOfInvincibility Shield]]" makes the phrase for "[[UnstoppableForceMeetsImmovableObject Paradox]]" (as per the tale of the blacksmith who claimed to forge omni-penetrating spears and invincible shields). [[http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Irresistible_force_paradox See it for yourself]]. Due to cultural osmosis it works in Vietnamese too.
* There's an example in the description of [[KnightErrant this trope]] on ThisVeryWiki.
-->''"[K]nights have declined in popularity, but the Knight Errant is still around in full force — instead of knights, they are now often cowboys, samurai, or {{Samurai Cowboy}}s."''
** And the page for OscarBait suggests that making a movie set during the Holocaust is such a shoo-in for the awards that it's like printing money. Then the Academy Award for Best Foreign Language film was won by... [[Film/TheCounterfeiters a film about people in a concentration camp during The Holocaust printing money.]]
* In Creator/JonathanLethem's Pep Talk for [[UsefulNotes/NaNoWriMo NaNoWriMo 2011]], he mentions "the epiphanies and {{pratfall}}s. The epiphanic pratfalls," in stories.
* Wikipedia's list of morphine-like chemicals includes dextrorphan, methorphan, and dextromethorphan.
* Laws are written this way to prevent OffOnATechnicality.
* One of the orientation videos at Boston University, when listing rules for dorm life, states: "No smoking. No gambling. No waterbeds. No smoking on waterbeds while gambling."
* [[http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Bread Bread]]. [[http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Egg_(food) Eggs]]. [[http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Scotch_egg Breaded eggs.]] [[http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Egg_in_the_basket And more breaded eggs.]]
** [[http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/French_toast Egged bread.]] [[http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Challah Bread with eggs in it.]] [[http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Brioche More bread with eggs in it]]. [[http://www.foodandwine.com/recipes/challah-french-toast Egged bread with eggs in it]]. [[http://www.marthastewart.com/317657/balthazar-brioche-french-toast More egged bread with eggs in it]].

* Speaking of skiing, at some ski resorts (in particular a few in Colorado), there are blue trails (intermediate), black trails (advanced), and blue-black trails (advanced-intermediate, which is basically a spot in between the previous two designations).
* Human blood types: A, B, AB (also O, which inverts this trope, as it is the ABSENCE of both A and B).
* TabletopGame/{{Poker}}:
** A two of a kind? A three of a kind? How about a two of a kind ''and'' a three of a kind: a full house!
** There is a straight (5 cards in consecutive value), a flush (all cards of the same suit), as well as a straight flush (both)!
* A Japanese-German dictionary translates "Zaseki"[[note]]"Seat" in English[[/note]] as "Sitz, Platz, Sitzplatz."
* ''Series/WheelOfFortune'' hostess '''Vanna''' White was formerly married to '''Gio'''rgio San Pietro. One of their two children was named '''Giovanna''' (which, conveniently, is a relatively common Italian name roughly equivalent to "Joan" or "Jane").
* American professional basketball player Latoya Pringle had her name changed to Lara Sanders after she obtained Turkish citizenship. It was later changed to Latoya Sanders.
* Doritos and Mountain Dew are commonly seen as stereotypical gamer food and drink, respectively. The next logical step? [[http://www.huffingtonpost.com/2014/11/08/doritos-mountain-dew_n_6126102.html?utm_hp_ref=business&ncid=tweetlnkushpmg00000067 Doritos-flavored Mountain Dew]]. This is made possible thanks to [=PepsiCo=] (which produces Mountain Dew) owning the Frito-Lay company (which produces Doritos).

%% Weblinks are not examples.
* Some grammatical tenses work like this. "I will do it" is future tense. "I have done it" is perfect tense. "I will have done it" is future perfect tense.
* The 2015 Razzie awards included a nomination under "Worst Screen Couple" for "Any Two Robots, Actors, or Robotic Actors" going to ''Film/TransformersAgeOfExtinction''.
* There is chlorine, a dangerous, toxic, oxidizing gas. There is fluorine, an even more dangerous, toxic, oxidizing gas. And then there is [[https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Chlorine_trifluoride chlorine trifluoride]], which is extraordinarily toxic and will set just about anything on fire.
** Add together oxygen, a strong oxidizer, and the aforementioned fluorine, another strong oxidizer, and you get [[https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Dioxygen_difluoride dioxygen difluoride]], an oxidizer so powerful that mixing it with ice at subzero temperature causes explosive reaction.
* A rental classified, wherein rental price includes "heat, water, and heating of your water."
* Some couples name their children using a combination of a part, or if fitting, the whole given names of the parents. Sometimes, the names of either relatives, close friends, or famous people are added, thus resulting with the child having an OverlyLongName.
* Mike Myers, delivering the opening address at the AFI Lifetime Achievement for Actor/SeanConnery, said, "Women want to be with him, men want to be him. And there are those men who want to be him and be with him. I'll admit it, I have a man-crush."
* [[http://docs.scala-lang.org/tutorials/FAQ/finding-implicits.html This Scala tutorial]] consists of "implicit conversions", "implicit parameters" and "implicit conversions as implicit parameters".
