@EdwinAshworth on a narrow reading of the question, it is a factual question: are there cases where the distinction makes a difference? Your examples are an answer to that question. This being a question and answer website, it seems obvious what you should do...

There's no assumption that the set of fascinating things is finite: just that there is such a thing as a "most fascinating thing".
