- Endocannabinoid system#Potential_functions, endogenous cannabis functions: erasing of memories, appetite, immunity, analgesia, sleep.
- Lystrosaurus, 95% of all terrestrial lifeforms at one point. Yet wasn't part of the mammal lineage. Evolution is not a numbers game. Instead minor branch of therapsids became dominant.

- Bone wars, Cope and Marsh's severe rivalry over dinosaur bones wasn't over money. In fact it drove them broke. Good example of competition principle. Also see: competition for marketshare in Japan (Princes of Yen) where firms drove themselves to ruin even.

- Innate immune system is an older evolutionary defense strategy, relatively speaking, and is the dominant immune system response found in plants, fungi, insects, and primitive multicellular organisms.
- Battle_of_Ramree_Island#Crocodile_attack, The scattered rifle shots in the pitch black swamp punctured by the screams of wounded men crushed in the jaws of huge reptiles ... Of about one thousand Japanese soldiers that entered the swamps of Ramree, only about twenty were found alive.
