** Due to RicFlair's increasing abuse of power, ChrisBenoit and DeanMalenko left the Four Horsemen to join ShaneDouglas and PerrySaturn. ECW fans who watched WCW would remember that Benoit, Douglas, and Malenko were the original Triple Threat. Ironically, the event that caused Saturn to join forces with Benoit included another former member of the Triple Threat: Bam Bam Bigelow.

* When a television series ends, the channel that hosts it then proceeds to go though all of the episodes before the SeriesFinale airs. You could say that the show's life is flashing before its (and our) eyes before its death.

* An Oscar Meyer hot dog radio ad had a young boy who loves hotdogs, then we hear him undergo stages of puberty. At the end of the commercial he is a deep-voiced man who advertises their jumbo hot dogs now that he's grown up. [[DoubleEntendre So his wiener got bigger with age.]]

* In the ''Literature/LoneWolf'' series, it can seem puzzling at first when you find out that weapons forged by the Darklords, like Helshezag or the Dagger of Vashna, give not only combat bonus against Darklords, but can also kill them permanently, a feature that until then was solely associated with the [[InfinityPlusOneSword Sommerswerd]], the ultimate weapon for the forces of good. But then you realize: as a whole, the Darklords never feared much any hypothetical hero reaching them in their strongholds surrounded by their armies, especially since they are NighInvulnerable. The one enemy they are most likely to be confronted with -- taking in account their very strong ChronicBackstabbingDisorder, and that the only way for an Archlord to emerge were civil wars between their different factions -- are simply ''other Darklords''. Thus, it should be no surprise that they devised weapons specifically to defend themselves against their rivals, and that could put them down definitely.

* In antiquity and even up until the middle ages, pretty much everything was written in verse. Not just poetry, literature, or even drama: philosophy, scientific and medical texts were also written in verse, as were histories. This seems like a strange affectation at first, but remember that during these periods there wasn't such a thing as movable type. All manuscripts had to be copied BY HAND; as such most learned people never actually owned the books, but memorized them from copies they read in a library or school. What's one way to aid memorization? Put the information into the form of a poem or song, where the regularity of the meter and rhyme will help you memorize it!

* Microsoft's decision to give window borders a glass look in Windows Vista and 7 may seem like a rather random choice made only because it would look flashy, akin to Apple's infamous tendency to give its interfaces looks based on materials like chrome, leather, etc. But think about it for a second: programs are depicted as windows, and what are real life windows are made out of? '''Glass!''' Add to that the fact that the OS itself is named ''Windows'', and it makes sense for its interface to have a glass look in general.

* A 2016 commercial for that year's new Toyota Prius starts with a group of criminals exiting the bank they just robbed to discover their getaway car's been towed. One of the robbers quips "Told ya someone should have waited in the car." After they steal the Prius and make their getaway, this same robber repeatedly makes himself look like the least intelligent member of the crew and the one who least takes the situation seriously. (For example, they encounter a police roadblock. He instead points out the farmer's market behind the roadblock and suggests getting some flowers for the car.) Now, it makes sense why they didn't take a perfectly logical suggestion seriously.
