* In 2012, Russian writer Mikhail Belozerov wrote ''Ukrainian gambit: the war of 2015'' (Russian: ''[[http://www.litres.ru/mihail-belozerov/ukrainskiy-gambit-voyna-2015/ Украинский гамбит. Война 2015]]'') as a speculative novel set TwentyMinutesIntoTheFuture. The story was centered around a squad of Russian volunteers from the Donbass region, who fight against Ukrainians, Tatars and the NATO response force. Short of NATO involvement, everything else later turned out to be TruthInTelevision.

* No less than ''fourteen'' drummers have taken the stage with space-rockers ''{{Hawkwind}}'' at one time or another. This may well have been the origin of the "disposable drummer" gag in ''Film/ThisIsSpinalTap''.
