* An almost-literal version of being nailed to the wheel: when the British Army abolished flogging in 1881, the draconian Field Punishment Number One was substituted. This was in use until after the end of WW1 and only abolished in 1923. ujsed for offences justr short of court-martial, including and often imposed for habitual drunken-ness, the punishment involved tying the offender by wrists and ankle to a wheel. Whether or not this wheel belonged to a vehickle in motion was at the whim of the officer. The punishment was explicitly referred to as "crucifixion" and was probably the last survival of the mediaeval punishment of "breaking on the wheel". [[note]] The British Army probably did away with it for practical reasons - in the 12920's it moved from horse-drawn wagons with spoked wheels to motorised transport - with far smaller wheels that lacked spokes and which would have been impossible to tie offenders to.[[/note]]

-->"One fine evening two military policemen appeared with a handcuffed prisoner, and, in full view of the crowd and villagers, tied him to the wheel of a limber, cruciform fashion. The poor devil, a British Tommy, was undergoing Field Punishment Number One, and this public exposure was part of the punishment. There was a dramatic silence as every eye watched the man being fastened to the wheel, and some jeering started. Lashing men to a wheel in public was one of the most disgraceful things in the war."

* Gamzee Makara from ''Webcomic/{{Homestuck}}'' gets nailed to the wagon when he runs out of sopor slime to make pies from, which the slime is known to have degenerative effects on troll's brains. To say "shit hits the fan" is putting it lightly, considering that [[spoiler:He murders Equius, Nepeta, and attempts to off Terezi.]]

* One episode of ''{{Frasier}}'' has him attempt to counsel his agent Bibi into quitting smoking. He ends up holing her up in his apartment for three days, but in the end all the encouragement she needs is to be reminded that her "84 year-old and on his third pacemaker" fiancé won't marry her unless she quits.

* Many visitors to Muslim countries find that getting booze can be quite difficult, expensive, or both, resulting in severe cutbacks to consumption or even total sobriety. The reaction to this varies, but Central Asia, North Africa, and the Middle East are not considered great destinations for boozehounds.

* As apparent revenge against Maladict ([[AddictionDisplacement a vampire]]), a soldier in ''Discworld/MonstrousRegiment'' steals Maladict's coffee machine and beans, resulting in a vampire getting more and more insane and willing to revert to drinking blood as the book goes on. It turns out Strappi's just a [[TheNeidermeyer bastard]], and it helps that he [[VanHelsingHateCrimes hates Mal]]. Though attempted [[TeamKiller murder]]-by-proxy was [[KickTheDog maybe]] [[CreateYourOwnVillain not the]] [[BullyingADragon best way]] [[WhatAnIdiot to show it]].
