football

Football: too much running on the neatly cut grass can lead to this rather ridiculous physiological disorder as one or both testicles detach from their natural location and slide into the patient's abdominal cavity, and then if the running continues they slide downwards ending up at his feet. If both testicles end up on one foot, this disorder is also known as the off-side.

cars

It has been said many times that the French car builders copy German cars, but in order to be less obvious they copy older models. That would certainly explain why a brand new French car sounds just like a twenty year old German car.

When an experiment is set up perfectly, frequently the results will not match the expectations; rendering the entire attempt useless.
