Do Meta examples belong in Real Life or under whatever folder the discovery was related to?

For example, if a strange bug in a video game can be triggered using an incredibly easy command, but nobody realized it for years, is that under Video Games or Real Life?

About the real life example about helmets blocking peripheral vision and causing soldiers to get shot.

Most modern helmets don't actually block peripheral vision, but do distort and block sound, which does reduce situational awareness. Wearing tactical goggles, night vision goggles or gas masks however does indeed block peripheral vision.

Type the word in the image. This goes away if you get known.

The next one might be easier to see.

How well does it match the trope?
