Isn't it a few months early?

So I was looking at that annoying-but-helpful little news thing that comes up when your instant messengers load, and this comes up:

"Officials probe bizarre ailment - victims report bugs crawling on skin."

I hope you all know where I'm going with this. More and more, things have begun to break the fourth wall and lift the veil or whatever you might see it as. If you're not sure what I mean, remember back in late 2006 with the hospitalization of one Suzumiya Haruhi? And the storm in the Indian Ocean just after Pichi Pichi Pitch ended? Not to sound like the old hobo by the bus depot carrying a shopping bag from a shoe store and preaching about the end of the world, but it's impossible not to notice weird things like that. So, why not notice them?

You know what that means: Discussion time! What are some weird real-life unintentional references you've come across? An overactive imagination is the best sort.

Speaking of Higurashi, I'm developing an addiction to Daybreak. I'm only good with Keiichi, though - I can't get past the second stage of story mode playing as anyone else, even Rena and Satoko, who have similar controls. Time to practice!
