** One possible explanation for the numerical discrepancies might be that some of the steps described involves processing the cocaine under discussion and stretching it with cutting agents.

-->We gotta flee to Panama, but wait it's half-and-half\ Keys is one and two-fifth, so how we flip\ Thirty-two grams raw, chop it in half, get sixteen, double it times three\ We got forty-eight, which mean a whole lot of cream\ Divide the profit by four, subtract it by eight\ We back to sixteen, now add the other two that 'Mega bringin' through\ So let's see, if we flip this other key\ Then that's more for me, mad coke and mad leak\ Plus a five hundred, cut in half is two-fifty\

** [[DontExplainTheJoke In case you don't get it]], the error is that he says nine posts for a closed figure. You would really need ten. To visualize this, imagine a fence laid out in a triangle, with three rails and three posts.

** The ''VideoGame/BaldursGate'' series is centered around the story of the mortal children of the god Bhaal, who foresaw his own death during the coming Time of Troubles and produced a number of mortal children to ensure his resurrection through them. In the last installment, ''Throne of Bhaal'', you learn that an important Bhaalspawn character, who is known to be about twenty-one at this time, was being held as a baby by a cult of Bhaal worshippers who intended to sacrifice Bhaalspawn children to raise Bhaal or something. This all makes perfect sense until you remember that the Time of Troubles was given as having been about a decade ago. This means that the cult was operating about ten years ''before'' Bhaal died, which makes its actions nonsensical or at least unexplained. ** Funnily enough, the first ''Baldur's Gate'' game acknowledged this trope exists, in your journal entry for completing the side quest "A Rogue Ogre".

* Two examples from ''Manga/RaveMaster''. The first is that Haru claims to have been fighting for the sake of the world for two years, when every bit of evidence to come before and after that says he's been at it for one. The second and far more unfortunate example, which Hiro Mashima freely confessed to, is that he miscounted the number of chapters he had left before he had to end the series. This meant that while several fights in the final arc involving the QuirkyMinibossSquad and more peripheral members of Haru's gang lasted a good long while, Haru's own fight with Lucia ended a chapter early, and another intended chapter where the two talked afterward was shortened to a single page.

* ''Literature/{{Discworld}}'' intentionally avoided a precise timeline for a long while, meaning that the course of events in the series looked occasionally like a horrible mess, and readers have gone to elaborate lengths to construct a [[http://www.co.uk.lspace.org/books/timeline/dw-timeline-intro.html working timeline]]. Creator/TerryPratchett eventually paid more attention to the timeline, and shrugged off inconsistencies as [[AlternateUniverse alternate pasts via the "Trousers of Time"]]. Eventually, he got right down to handwaving the inconsistencies in ''Discworld/ThiefOfTime'', which established that time has been "broken" before and fixing it all together [[TimeyWimeyBall didn't go as well as hoped]]. ** A more noticeable example occurs in the climax of ''Men At Arms'' where the Gonne fires seven times without a reload despite being established as only being able to hold six shots.
