* Bart Sibrel is a conspiracy theorist who, among other things, claims that the moon landings were faked. Most people outside of the conspiracy theorist community only know that name via an incident in 2002, where he confronted Buzz Aldrin (a member of the Apollo 11 mission and the second man to walk on The Moon) outside of a conference in Hollywood, California. After going as far as physically poking Aldrin with a Bible he was carrying (asking to swear on it that he actually went to the moon), the then-72 year-old Aldrin punched Sibrel in the face. Police declined to pursue charges after several witnesses swore to Sibrel's harassment.

*** So was the Conquest (they were better at supporting someone else's colony), and the Prussian. Also Algeria and the Suez crisis after World War 2. France had a really bad streak.

* General Motors officially called their 1973 Chevrolet trucks "Rounded Line" as a reference to the body style, which had their profile and almost every corner rounded for better aerodynamics. However, the front end was still flat and rectangular unlike the rest of the truck. And so, to this day, people everywhere identify these trucks as "square bodies".

* Aaron Burr is best-known for shooting and killing UsefulNotes/AlexanderHamilton, in spite of being a former Vice-President who was charged with treason for his alleged plan to secede from the Union with a rebel army. No evidence was actually produced, so he was acquitted.

* Bobby Leach, the second man to go over Niagara Falls in a barrel, is less known for that accomplishment than the fact that he died by slipping on an orange peel.

** On a lighter note, Elton played a free concert in 1980 in [[BigApplesauce Central Park]] in front of a record-breaking crowd of 400,000 fans (this at a low point in Elton's popularity). While a certain amount of his then-trademark flamboyant wardrobe choices were on display, in the last few numbers, Elton performed in a Bob Mackie-designed Donald Duck suit. Photos taken of him in the suit seem to be go-to StockFootage for late-night talk shows and sketch comedy shows when parodying Elton.

* [[TurnOfTheMillennium The first decade of the 2000s]] is commonly associated with things like the WarOnTerror and unrest with the [[TheFundamentalist Religious Right]] in the United States, but it's also commonly associated with being a decade known for continuing the DarkerAndEdgier attitude of the 1990s what with musical genres like NuMetal and Music/{{Emo}} becoming mainstream, and some of the media of the era is also associated with portraying a more cynical attitude compared to previous decades, even though most of this attitude started in the 1990s.
