* LordPeterWimsey's mother is famous for constantly going off on a tangent, whenever she speaks - and then on a tangent to the tangent, and so on. Back when the books were written, it was probably great fun to read, [[ViewersAreGeniuses if you were reasonably educated and followed the news.]] These days, it's mostly confusing.

** The ''TabletopGame/DiscworldRolePlayingGame'' supplement has a special character advantage to reflect this sort of thing: every time you try to create something original, there's a chance you might actually come up with something revolutionary but unrelated.

* ''WebVideo/ExtraCredits'' suggested invoking this as a method to get students to link ideas together in their "Gamifying Education" episode. Of course, they also suggested making sure the students explain why each leap in the walk was valid.

* Creator/BruceCoville's ''MyTeacherIsAnAlien'' series perfectly describes the Wikipelunking phenomenon, [[OlderThanTheyThink many years before wikis existed]]. In it, aliens have developed an integrated virtual reality that is perfectly realistic, and used entirely for research purposes, showing the user whatever they want (basically, Wikipedia meets a LotusEaterMachine). The aliens have learned to [[AntiPoopSocking put time limits on the technology so that no one ''starves to death'']].
