** In his Disneycember review of ''Disney/SnowWhiteAndTheSevenDwarfs'' Doug mentioned it's "typical 1940s animation." In reality "Snow White" was released in 1937. Maybe it was just ahead of its time.

Maybe it What's particularly glaring about this is that ''Snow White'' was just ahead of its time.the first feature length cel animated movie ever made. It kick started an entire genre. So saying it's animation was typical ignores how innovative the work put into it was.

** In his review of ''Film/EventHorizon'', he repeatedly complains about the actions of the Lewis & Clarke's "scientific" crew, except they weren't scientists to begin with, they are instead the space equivalent of a Coast Guard rescue crew focused purely on emergency response with roles explicitly stated. The only scientist was their passenger!

*** Can't believe I'm doing this, but... While Meyer obviously made the mistake, this is more of a Critical Editing Failure. I'm ''totally positive'' my proofreader would have caught those, and Meyer's editor should have too. Actually, any half-decent copy editor could have caught several of the things on this page. I don't even ''pay'' for that level of checking and mine would have called me out on the 'west coast of Brazil' one, because she has a ''brain''.

* The reason why the 8th gen ''PaperMario'' [[VideoGame/PaperMarioStickerStar ga]][[VideoGame/PaperMarioColorSplash mes]] only have Toads as a recurring friendly species is because producer Kensuke Tanabe thinks they're the only allies Mario has in the main series, and has encouraged his fellow staff to think likewise. Even a quick glance towards early gameplay of several main series games quickly demonstrate the utter falsehood of this belief, with species such as [[VideoGame/SuperMarioSunshine Piantas, Nokis]], [[VideoGame/SuperMarioGalaxy2 Jibberjays and Whittles]], among [[Main/LoadsAndLoadsOfCharacters many]] others.

* In the ''WesternAnimation/KingOfTheHill'' episode "Bobby Goes Nuts', when trying to punish Bobby for kicking Hank in the groin, Peggy gets kicked in the groin by Bobby and just smirks at him when in reality it should have hurt just as much despite her lack of testicles.

** Dan freaks out when he unthinkingly drinks a milkshake, thinking he will die. In actuality intolerance to lactose isn't fatal (worst case scenario, he'll have a bit of gas and possibly [[BringMyBrownPants need a change of underwear]]--plus, a couple of swallows of dairy might not even do anything if one's lactose intolerance is fairly mild. Of course, Dan tends to be a drama queen).

* In one episode of ''WesternAnimation/Ben10Omniverse'', [[AnimalWrongsGroup Pax]] unleashes a tiny alien called the Screegit around Bellwood. The Screegit turns into a rampaging monster when exposed to nitrogen, but Pax thinks it'll be okay, since humans breathe oxygen. Ben angrily points out that Earth's atmosphere has nitrogen in it as well.[[note]]In fact as shown by NoGameNoLife, a pure oxygen atmopshere would be to dense and heavy for us to properly breathe.[[/note]]

** A double example, both InUniverse and out-of-universe: at one point, Cartman establishes a plan to ambush Wendy by kicking her in the balls. This, naturally, fails, as she's a girl and therefore doesn't have balls, something Cartman didn't know. However, what the ''writers'' failed to realise is that, despite lack of testicles, getting kicked in the crotch hurts just as much for a girl as it does for a guy.
