*** Though maximum heights can be justified in areas where disease-carrying pests are common, as they can hide and breed in tall grass.

*** Though maximum heights can be justified in areas where disease-carrying pests are common, as they can hide and breed in tall grass. Similarly, cutting your grass too short can effectively starve/dry out the plant since there's no longer enough chlorophyll to sustain it and its already-established roots, making a minimum height understandable.

** Is it worth to underline the point that Germany didn´t ''start'' WorldWarI? The Austrians did. The Germans, however, were the first to actually ''declare'' it, and thus, got the but of every punishment after the whole thing was over. Just to underline the sheer hilarity of this mess.

** As of ''3DS \ WiiU'', patches. Every {{Nerf}} applied to every character will turn into a massive tug-of-war between fans who think it was necessary and those who think it wasn't. The patches often remove what the developers and casual players call "exploits" and what the professional scene calls "high-level techniques." Passionate and lengthy accusations of watering down the game and ruining mains will ensue every time a patch comes along.

** This is normally a very fringe fan as most fans of either Franchise see the other as just as good as the other, given cultural differences between the two intended audiences (on both sides of the Pacific, the opposite number series is seen as more mature for different reasons). It helps that a bad season of PowerRangers might find a very well received season in SuperSentai and vice versa. Among this crowd, the debate follows the line that of should PowerRangers remain faithful to the SuperSentai counterpart or should they tell their own story. There are plenty of examples of PowerRangers to support one side over the other. As of UchuuSentaiKyuranger, writers for both series are working closer to create elements that can be marketed in both markets.

** Also, toilet paper is considered to be so vital in the modern world that in the United Kingdom, men employed in the manufacture of toilet paper are exempt from conscription in the event of a war.

** Oddly, most coffee drinkers will not get on your case for not not drinking coffee in any form. You may get surprised looks from people who can't get through the day without a cup or three, but many will actually compliment you for staying away from the stuff.

** Experience at driving is even more serious business. If you're not that experienced in driving, you won't get any love from other drivers since being a bad driver is like an cardinal sin. Even if you never intend to cause any harm, that will never stop drivers from giving you crap.

** In the UsefulNotes/LosAngeles area, traffic is serious business on top of driving, to the point that, despite some saying that the local news reporting on James Comey's convoy causing a traffic mess on the 405 over him being fired by Donald Trump being a case of WorstNewsJudgmentEver, locals didn't even bat an eye, because they were concerned about how long it would be before they and their loved ones would be home.

* Across Europe, Central and South America, Africa and much of Asia, UsefulNotes/AssociationFootball is SeriousBusiness. Let us count the ways:
** When there was a corruption scandal potentially affecting the election for the presidency of FIFA (the international football federation) in May 2011, it made headline news in the UK and elsewhere, partly because the huge sums earned by FIFA for the television rights to the World Cup have made the organisation serious business in a very literal sense.
** Winning or failing to win major international competitions is often treated as a huge deal by fans in the successful or unsuccessful countries. In 1996 and again in 1998, England's campaigns for the European Championship and World Cup respectively were heralded by a song referring to "thirty years of hurt" since England's last World Cup success in 1966, as if the whole country had been in floods of tears ever since. For the record, it's now forty-five years of hurt and counting. Oh, and ''winning'' the World Cup means a national holiday.
** In parts of Scotland, there's historically been a link between football and sectarian rivalries (Protestant v. Catholic) which has sometimes turned nasty. Neil Lennon, the Northern Irish and Catholic manager of Celtic FC was sent a parcel bomb and later, bullets, through the post. Although it's unclear whether football fans were involved at all this was widely condemned as anti-Catholic terrorism.
** Spain has also seen football and politics intertwine in the rivalry between Barcelona and Real Madrid, regarded by some of their more fervent supporters as representing Catalan and Castilian nationalism respectively.
** Italians care more of football than politics. And when referee Byron Moreno made several controversial calls in a 2002 World Cup match between South Korea and Italy, Korean players playing in Italy got fired to ''save them from being lynched'' if they returned in Italy, and, at the moment of this writing in 2013, the referee is ''still'' getting death threats from Italians.
