Submarines -- Design and construction. Summary The history of submarines shows there were two significant advances in the performance of submarines, which occurred after full scientific studies were undertaken.
Also the story of how the dog died He died from eating all that horse meat after your barn caught on fire due to the candles from your mother's funeral after she died of a heart attack after catching your wife cheating with the farm hand and the death of a family of four The mom died after slipping on the stairs that were wet because she left the bathtub running which drowned the children; the husband died after trying to open the door which became electrified due to the water soaking the floor.
And then there's the piece of sheet metal that came loose, decapitating a biker, and the motorcycle rides past the driver's window with the headless corpse on it, giving the driver a fatal heart attack, causing his truck to plow right into a bus stop full of people.
Literature Anything written by Michael Crichton. Played straight in Bernard Werber's "The Thanatonauts", in which the angels use a rat to engineer a series of events, eventually leading to a plane crashing into the main characters' apartment building, killing them all.
Done with a series of mummified relics in Nation. The main characters flee the cloud of noxious dust that is quickly filling the cave, stopping halfway because there's a gap in the mummies and they think the chain will stop The Hunt for Red October introduces a Soviet submarine, with an overworked technician failing to notice that one gauge is a bit too high.
Ten pages later, a sphere of molten metal has destroyed the sub. The book then goes into detail about how, to save money, the Soviet Navy used steel instead of titanium for a small "flapper" valve which, when subjected to the hot radioactive water of the nuclear power plant cooling system, warped ever so slightly, causing small "waves" in the cooling pipe water.
These waves grew larger and larger over time until eventually the system, not designed to deal with the pressure variation, sprung a leak. This then results in the reactor going critical, melting down, and every single person on the submarine dying from either drowning or asphyxiation.
Because of a ten-cent savings in metal costs. As if that's not bad enough, the US then uses the sunken submarine to steal the Soviet Navy's highly advanced and extremely expensive new missile submarine. So really, because of a ten-cent savings in metal costs, the Soviet Navy loses the Red October.
Lelldorin's escape from Arendia starts with him getting into a fight with his cousin and ends with him instigating a minor war and having a price on his head. All because he fell for a Mimbrate girl and was forced to elope. On the plus side, he did get the girl.
This is implied to happen rather frequently in Arendia, always ending in war. Garion notes that this is tragically typical of Lelldorin.

In The Malloreon it's played very seriously when Garion learns he nearly caused a global environmental catastrophe after creating one little thunderstorm for special effects triggered off a series of natural disasters around the globe that were acting and reacting with each other trigger more and more that was eventually going to culminate in a full-blown globally-affecting ice age.
It's only then that he learns not to tamper with the weather. In David Eddings' The Sapphire RoseDisaster Dominoes is taken to hilarious and literal levels when Talen decides on a good way to deal with undead soldiers who guard a single flagstone: Written under the name Rosetta Stonethis story starts with a sneezing bug and ends with the people rescued from a sinking boat getting tangled up with a circus parade.
Nearly sending a whole town into chaos, and all done in a humorous manner. Horton and the Kwuggerbug and More Lost Stories: Officer Pat sees a gnat about to bite a drowsing cat, and thinks about the increasingly nasty consequences from this, which ends with the town being blown up.
To prevent this, he swats the gnat. Jimmy took his boa constrictor along during a class trip to the farm and the snake ate the farmer's wife's washing, then crawled into the hen-house, which frightened the hens, which caused one to lay an egg, which broke on a student's head and lead to an all-out egg fight amongst the students, which then resulted in them using up all the eggs and running to use the pigs' corn instead, which then caused the pigs to raid the bus to eat the kids' lunches, which distracted the farmer who crashed his tractor into a hay bale and pushed it on top of a cow, which quite understandably burst into tears.
Amusingly enough, the story is told Back to Front. The West African folk tale "Why Mosquitoes Buzz in People's Ears" which the page quote is from tells the tail of Mosquito, who tells a lie to an iguana and sets off a chain of events that results in one of Mother Owl's children being killed, and thus she refused to wake the sun so the day would come until she knew who was responsible.
Similarly, there's the Western "The Old Lady Who Swallowed a Fly", which couples this with Serial Escalation she ate a spider to catch the fly, a mouse to catch the spider, etc. This story from the British naval communications magazine. The captain of an aircraft carrier sailing into Hong Kong harbor orders a midshipman to "let go" of a signal flag.
The first officer overhears and "let's go" the starboard anchor. Through a comedy of errors, this inexorably leads to the loss of multiple ships, aircraft, seabirds, and the goodwill of the city of Hong Kong.
In the Revelation Space Seriesthe Glitter Belt, a vast ring of thousands of space stations over the planet Yellowstone is hit by the Melding Plague, a technological Grey Goo virus that corrupts higher technology.
The Plague initially only destroyed a few space stations, but the destruction of the stations spawned more debris which took out further stations, creating even more debris which took out more stations, recursively, creating Kessler Syndrome see Real Life. The Ten Plagues of Egypt are what happens when God decides to have a go with this trope.
After He turns the Nile river into blood, frogs and flies swarm in abundance, disease runs rampant, the weather takes a turn for the worst, livestock rapidly die off and grain stores become contaminated, and thousands drop dead more or less overnight.
In Wormthis is the Simurgh's most dangerous method of attacking humanity. As a Precog so powerful that she is effectively omniscient, and being the only telepath in the setting, she uses her powers to influence people that she knows will be in critical positions some time in the future, at which point they abruptly go insane and begin sabotaging whatever efforts to save humanity they are involved in.
This is made even worse by the fact that she's a city-destroying monstrosity who broadcasts a psychic scream across geographic distances whenever she attacks, creating potentially hundreds of thousands of sleeper agents.
People caught on after the first few attacks and began implementing countermeasures, but it's suggested that many of these countermeasures play directly into her hands.
In the CSI episode "Loco Motives", an ordinary man begins by dropping a bowl of Jell-O and ends up accidentally killing his wife and neighbor and is caught when he gets stuck in quick-set concrete trying to bury his wife's body.
After his crime, his pocket is picked and he loses a bet with Brass and confesses when his neighbor's daughter accidentally identifies him as he is being released.DSTO-TR Some Aspects of Submarine Design - Part 1 Hydrodynamics [Loose Leaf Edition] [P.
