Interesting that...

52 is 100 base sqrt(52) = 7.2111025... and 64 base 8 64 is 100 base 8 and 64 base 10 100 is 100 base 10 and 64 base 16 256 is 100 base 16 and 64 base 42 (!) 1,764 is 100 base 42 and 64 base 293.333...

OK, so this has gone on too long...

Book / Play / Movie translations that totally changed the plot but left the intent and feel intact:

- Hair: play -> movie
- Howl's Moving Castle: book -> movie
- The Hunt for Red October: book -> movie
- Ocean's Eleven: movie (1960) -> movie (2001)
- War of the Worlds: book -> movie (1953)
- When Worlds Collide: book -> movie

Word pairs where the negative and positive forms mean the same:

- flammable / inflammable
- ravel / unravel
- regardless / irregardless (non-standard)

Lost contrapositive (i.e., the base form was a word, the negative was created, and the base form is no longer a word.
