** The term "[[http://pervocracy.blogspot.com/2012/06/missing-stair.html missing stair]]" has come to refer to abusers who get away with their actions because people would rather work around the problem than confront it. Some particularly JustForFun/{{egregious}} examples in recent memory include the Catholic Church's massive coverup of [[PedophilePriest child molestation]] and Creator/TheBBC's neglectful attitudes toward Creator/JimmySavile's horrific sexual offenses. Similarly, Corey Feldman of ''Film/TheGoonies'' fame has also [[http://articles.latimes.com/2012/jan/08/business/la-fi-ct-hollywood-molesters-20120109 talked]] [[http://abcnews.go.com/Entertainment/corey-feldman-pedophilia-problem-child-actors-contributed-demise/story?id=14256781 about]] this phenomenon in Hollywood, and he in turn faced criticism from his late costar Creator/CoreyHaim, who accused Feldman himself of letting an adult molest Haim.

* In ''Literature/TheSpiritThief'', there are three rules [[PhysicalGod the Shepherdess]] set down that all spirits must obey: don't look at the sky, don't ask about the stuff you see in the sky, and never, ever mention stars. By the fifth book, the elephant becomes so conspicuous, the Shaper Mountain goes "screw it" and explains everything to Slorn and Miranda.
