Why are there no Real Life examples allowed but there are real life examples of tropes like Every Car Is a Pinto? That makes absolutely no sense.

Because nobody mentioned that in the RL cleanup thread.

I find the picture from Dr. McNinja to be amusingly ironic. The page is Reality Ensues, and it shows a panel with a bunch of bullets missing someone, followed by a panel of him falling to the ground dead as though they had hit.

I don't know about the No Real Life Examples. I'd think it would be appropriate if someone went to do something, expecting a special result, and failed.

I was the one who added the first example under Web Original (I spork those sorts of stories for an LJ community.) Do I really need to add a link?

A link is always beneficial with web-works. At the very least we'll need a name of the work (and screen-name of author) otherwise how do we know it is an actual work instead of something that would be better on the Darth Wiki and Unpublished Works? It may not have to be notable, but it does have to be verifiable.

Here you go. Very MATURE CONTENT warning, but probably not NSFW, unless one habitually browses the Internet from work in large-text mode, or on the office projector.

I certainly don't hope this comes back to bite me when I'm looking for a job. Of course, anyone who happens across my TV Tropes history is either going to avoid it because they're familiar with the site, or more likely get sucked in and forget why they came, long before they see this post. :)

Cut this:
* A Game of Thrones transitions into this suddenly with the successful execution of Ned Stark. That is, if it hadn't done that with Littlefinger paying off the guards for Cersei prior.
Because these moments were not more realistic. There would have been nothing unrealistic about sparing Eddard; incidentally, it would have been to their political advantage. Likewise, it would not have been more realistic for Littlefinger to bribe the guards for Ned. Reality Ensues would be the total collapse of civilization the first time there's a decade-long winter.

What's the Alt Text for that Dr. McNinja image? I go to the site, but I get nothing.

From the lead: "No Real Life examples, please. Well, obviously..." Why wouldn't the winners and at-risk survivors of Darwin Awards be an example?

Too dumb to live and Reality is unrealistic should be enough.

On the Subject of Batman Vs. Wonder Woman

"she has a Kryptonite Factor: bullets. but it's the one thing that batman can't use."

Can't Wonder Woman parry bullets with her bracelets? Is this a good example?
