Examples in the world

There are not many examples in the world since Blivet does not actually exist. However, the word "Blivet" has been used as a code name for many things: "...the US army used the world blivet as slang in World War II to refer to "ten pounds of manure inside a five pound bag." In practical terms, it referred to an untenable situation, a crucial but substandard or damaged tool, or a self-important person. In the air force, a blivet refers to a special weapon whose existence cannot be officially confirmed or denied. Among computer programmers, a blivet refers to any embarrassing glitch that pops up during a customer demonstration." So even though blivet does not exist and can never exist, it is referred to in very different areas.
