** When calling Sigint about the [=XM16E1=] rifle, Snake seems to think the addition of a three-round burst fire mode to the gun is a rather stupid idea. While his statement makes sense given the timeline (US military doctrine for firing weapons in combat at the time was, basically "you [[MoreDakka fire in full auto]] or you don't fire at all"), the M16 eventually shook off most of its infamy from UsefulNotes/TheVietnamWar with the A2 version, which replaced the full-auto fire with a three-round burst. [[TheyChangedItSoNowItSucks The return of a fully automatic fire mode is a much desired feature among US soldiers.]]

Added DiffLines:

* Happened a couple times on ''Series/RuPaulsDragRace RuPaul's Drag Race]]'' regarding some of the less conventional season winners:
** Season 4's Sharon Needles didn't get on with guest judge Max Mutchnick, who said of her, "I hate the name, I hate the style; nobody wants to go to a drag show to see the little girl from ''Film/TheRing''." Sharon not only went on to win that season, but is also one of the more popular queens from the show.
** When Season 5's Alyssa Edwards did poorly in a comedy challenge, she was okay with it because "America's Next Drag Superstar is not going to tour the country being a stand-up comedian." Not only did Season 5's Jinkx Monsoon become the first comedy queen to win the crown, but Season 6's Bianca Del Rio won the crown then ''toured the country being a stand-up comedian''.

** Barnes has a moment of this when the lift attendant tries to pitch him the idea for a drinking straw with little accordion-style ridges that allow it to bend and flex. Not only does he dismiss the invention, [[JerkassBall he fires the poor guy on the spot.]]

* The board members in ''Film/TheHudsuckerProxy'' think Norville Barnes' Hula Hoop invention is utterly worthless, but go ahead with mass production of the item for the sake of a massive stock scam. They are subsequently ruined [[SpringtimeForHitler when the product is a hit]].
