* WeirdHistoricalWar: "Crazy UsefulNotes/WorldWarII Weapons" showcases some of the RealLife attempts by the Allied to create wonder weapons. RealityEnsues as even the ones that actually worked when tested were too AwesomeButImpractical.

* TheCoconutEffect: ''PC Load Letter''. Printers since a few years ago have acquired large color LCD screens that displays more meaningful error messages and even step-by-step illustrated instructions on how to clear the error. However, this error message continued to be quoted since ''Office Space'' is such a cult film that it has been burned into many minds that printers display cryptic error messages on their screens when they malfunction.

However, this error message continued to be quoted since ''Office Space'' is such a cult film that it has been burned into many minds that printers display cryptic error messages on their screens when they malfunction.[[note]]For what it's worth, "PC Load Letter" means that the printer believes that standard 8 1/2 x 11" paper, or "letter" paper needs to be loaded, either because the machine's paper tray is empty, a different size is loaded, or a broken/misaligned sensor ''thinks'' that a different size paper is loaded.[[/note]]

* JustPlaneWrong: In the "Crazy WorldWarII Weapons" episode, Tory says the proposed bat bombs were to be dropped by B-52s, which were only conceived after the war's end, and wouldn't see service until 1955. The plan actually called for B-24s.

Added DiffLines:

Added DiffLines:

** In "Invented Before It's Time?", Tori is not only able to teleport back and forth between modern day and the 1970s for the cell phone bit, but also uses a modern smartphone to take a picture while in the 1970s.

Added DiffLines:

* CatchPhrase:
** "On this episode of White Rabbit Project, [[MadLibsCatchPhrase we'll go down the rabbit hole and ____"]].
** Grant also has a minor, probably unintentional one: "There are a hundred/thousand little things that need to go right, but only one thing needs to go wrong."


* WhiteBunny: Not in the show, but the title itself proper (which is an allusion to Alice in Wonderland).

* TechnologyMarchesOn: "Built Before Its Time?" showcases that various devices we use nowadays had their concepts applied many years ago, but modern technology has made them much more practical (such as on-board car navigation), while "Crazy WorldWarII Weapons" mentions that some of the devices the Allies tried to use as wonder weapons are being used today (such as helping deliver probes to Mars) or are still being researched (using stink bombs for riot use), but the tech base of the era made them utterly impractical. At the same time, "Where's My Hoverboard?" and "Superpower Tech" shows that devices exist that were totally in the realm of science fiction many years ago, but are still AwesomeButImpractical because of details like price range.
