* A flashback in ''Literature/{{Holes}}'' reveals that Camp Green Lake, the juvenile detention center the protagonist is sent to, actually used to be a beautiful lake that served as the life blood of a thriving town. But when the locals lynched a black onion farmer for kissing the white {{Schoolmarm}}, a drought gripped the area, causing the lake to dry up and the town to go down with it.

* Sochi, the host city of the 2014 Winter Olympics, was very noisy and full of life during the international competitions and festivities. It has since returned to a previous state of silent obscurity. As a result, many businesses that started up during the events have failed shortly after. Also, many projects to expand Sochi's infrastructure, complete and incomplete, have become abandoned or indefinitely suspended.
