It's difficult to tell what is being asked here. This question is ambiguous, vague, incomplete, overly broad, or rhetorical and cannot be reasonably answered in its current form. For help clarifying this question so that it can be reopened, visit the help center.If this question can be reworded to fit the rules in the help center, please edit the question.

What is your intent? Who will be your audience? It sounds like you are making midrashim which require a high level of expertise to interpret accessible to the novice! That doesn't sound helpful. – YDK Jun 5 '12 at 13:46
It seems to me that such a list would be extremely long - book-length. If you're working on such a list, I wish you success with your project, and suggest that perhaps you could reformulate your question here to ask for help with methods for tracking examples down, making sure they fit, etc., rather than ambiguously asking for help, which could be interpreted as asking for a book-length answer, here. – Isaac Moses Jun 5 '12 at 14:04
I agree with closing this question because it cannot be reasonably answered in its current form, but the phrase "not a real question" is unhelpful. It is real; someone asked it. There it is for everyone to see. It exists. Can the moderators please change that "real" phrase to something, uh, real? – Shemmy Jun 5 '12 at 21:18
