* [[http://warnewsupdates.blogspot.ca/2012/07/heavily-armed-and-bikini-clad-female.html This photograph]]. A bikini-clad Israeli soldier is at the beach with an assault rifle slung across her back and no one else at the beach seems to be paying attention to her. Soldiers carrying assault rifles in public is noteworthy in many countries, but is so common in Israel that most people ignore it. It's been said that Israel is the only country in the world where people will walk into a bank with machine guns and get in line.
* In UsefulNotes/SanFrancisco and other earthquake-prone cities, a mild quake (III or less on [[https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Mercalli_intensity_scale the Mercalli scale]])often gets no notice at all apart from the local news. Slightly stronger ones (IV-V) might garner a glance at the ceiling and some speculation as to the likely magnitude or epicenter, but soon afterwards it's business as usual.

** Note, however, that many people do take notice if you walk around with a rifle on your back, and you will most likely be talked to by the police about it, unless you do it regularly. Or have other hunting gear equipped.

Or have other hunting gear equipped. In many cases the policemen are going to ask the guy to keep the rifle in its sheath and carefully ''closed'', even if guns are supposed to be carried ''openly''.

* DonaldTrump infamously claimed on 9/11 he saw thousands of Muslims in New Jersey cheering as the towers fell. [[IdiotPlot and apparently not one person present bothered to to take a picture or record anything]]

** A blog entry of a german exchange student once mentioned how he stayed on the fifth floor of a hostel in Tokyo when a earthquake happened simultaneously with a typhoon. The owner apparently calmly secured the windows with a wooden plan behind them, turned off the electricity and then everyone waited it out despite the building violently shaking.

* As Homosexuality becomes more and more common in the recent years, people are starting to treat gay couples like they're something completely natural and common (at least in North America, that is).
** In a similar vein, certain areas regularly have people in drag walk around (such as Germany's Hamburg) to the point where a 2m man with blonde wig, ping miniskirt and high heels isn't even worth a second glance.

** Some tourist guides have the added note under weather conditions that you should always orient yourself on the natives. As long as they are calm, chances are that the earthquake, typhoon or tsunami will not harm you.

** When Creator/ImprovEverywhere staged their "No Pants" event, the videos usually showed a lot of confused people staring at the pantless passengers. When the video from the Tube came, at least 90% of the people maybe looked up for a second before minding their own business again.
