* In Fiddler on the Roof, Tevye has acquiesced to his two oldest daughters' unconventional marriages during inner monologues that follow a pattern: Reason why not, on the other hand reason why, on the other hand reason why not, on the other hand--ok, you can get married. So when the third daughter shows up with a Christian husband and the same inner monologue starts again, we have hope. But instead, this happens:

** Cyrano has two in his hope for winning Roxane’s love.

** The [[https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Warsaw_Uprising Warsaw Uprising]], not to be confused with the [[https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Warsaw_Ghetto_Uprising Warsaw Ghetto Uprising]] of the previous year, saw this. By late-summer 1944, the Soviets had annihilated Army Group Center and pushed all the way to the gates of Warsaw. The Polish resistance believed that the liberation of their city was at hand and so began their long-await uprising to cast out their German occupiers. Unfortunately, they did not realize that by then, the Soviets had exhausted their offensive capabilities and had to replenish. On top of that, Stalin had no interest in seeing a free Poland which would have close ties to the Western Allies, and also deprived them of use of Soviet airfields to resupply the Poles, who held out for two months before finally surrendering to the Germans. By the time the Soviets entered the following year, Warsaw had been flattened.

* Before understandings of meteorology became more widespread, the eye of a Hurricane could be this for people who had endured the first onslaught of the storm. Furthermore, the wall of a Hurricane's eye has the most powerful wind speeds. Therefore the storm gets stronger and stronger as the eye approaches, becoming the beautiful calm and serenity once it arrives, but transforming back into the maximum strength winds from the '''opposite''' direction.
