|These are what we call the 'YMMV items.' Things that some people find in this work. We call them 'your mileage might vary' because not everyone sees these things in the same way. This starts discussions in the trope lists, a thing we don't want. Please use the discussion page if you'd like to discuss any of these items.|
- Older Than They Think : Connections used the Hoe-Down suite from Aaron Copland's Rodeo as the background music in episode 8 when Burke was discussing the "great beef race" to deliver preserved beef to New Orleans. Most American viewers will recognize the music as the score to the extremely well-known "Beef: It's What's For Dinner" advertising campaign, but Connections tied the music to beef nearly 15 years before the ads appeared.
- Vindicated by History : Too many to name.
- Probably the biggest was at the end of The Day the Universe Changed when he shows a microchip and discussed how advances in computers and telecommunications could link the world together, something that you are using right this second.
