** Coconuts. The brown, furry part we're used to seeing is actually the "stone" of a mature coconut. Coconuts themselves are [[http://img.alibaba.com/photo/104498637/Young_Green_Coconut.jpg very different-looking]]. They are green, though they also come in yellow or orange. \\

** Ducati motorcycles often used dry clutches instead of wet clutches, and many people would often modify their clutch cover to have openings. This gives the motorcycles the characteristic clacking sound to which owners joke it "sounds broken." Unfortunately due to noise regulations, Ducati switched over to a wet clutch design in their later motorcycles.

*** People would joke when transferring files on Windows that the estimated time would jump up and down, as if Windows is too incompetent to figure out that a 1 gigabyte transfer with 100 MB/s capable disks should take about 10 seconds to transfer. The problem is that for every file, there's file system processing and storage drive seek time that add overhead time. The more files you are transferring, the more the transfer slows down because of this overhead. And so the number jumping around means the OS isn't making predictions based on this fact.


Added DiffLines:

*** Similarly Wi-Fi signal bars don't have much to do with signal strength or even network ''quality''. You can have full bars because the Wi-Fi receiver picked up the beacon packets (the packets Wi-Fi routers broadcast so devices know how to connect to it), but the actual network packets are garbage.

** Apple created a linear actuator system called the Taptic Engine that simulates the "click" feel of a button when pressing down on something that appears to be a button or button like, such as the Macbook Pro's trackpad, the [=iPhone's=] home button, and the face of the Apple Watch. The feeling is very convincing that you're pressing a button. More bizarre, if you cover your finger with a cloth and try pushing the "button," it won't "click."

* Similarly, ratchet wrenches in fiction tend to make their ratchet sound when the user is applying force, which is precisely when they shouldn't: they should be clicking when the user "re-arms" for another push. This mistake is egregiously visible in [[https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=aMCbwi_Mw-M Lily Shen's introduction cutscene]] in ''VideoGame/{{XCOM2}}''.

** To be fair, Batman only comes out at night, where black makes more sense.
*** Actually, navy blue is preferable for camouflage at night.

* When video playback fails, YouTube displays a window with static and a rolling bar of brightness. This is entirely simulated; neither of these naturally appear as a result of a failure in digital streaming. (Actual digital video failures tend to resemble the image falling apart into square fragments as the decompressor fails to recieve new blocks.)
