  1. Season 5 -The Monster Isolation. In the opening of this episode, Raj states, when Lucy uses the bathroom, 'I should have brought condoms. Yet in the same season, episode 1 -The Skank Reflex Analysis, Penny asked 'You did have protection?', and Raj told Penny 'He is always packing'. Listen to Raj. Even if there is not a cloud in the sky, think stormy weather, and bring a rain coat, and wrap that rascal. or as Kripki would say 'Wap that Wascal'. Never leave them out of your sight. Needle pin holes can defeat the purpose. A girlfriend had her recent boy friend use pin holes to try to keep her. She still dumped him, and got an abortion.
  2. Season 5-The Shiny Trinket Maneuver. Fun Fact Sheldon states he still has a mexican peso in his nose. Why would Sheldon allow this to continue? Perhaps it is a silver or gold peso. Metals are antibacterial, such as silver and gold. Even before the germ theory humans coveted silver and gold eating utensils. They are bactericidal.
  3. Season 5-The Friendship Contraction. Bernie states that Howard is going to learn how to poop in space, yet Howard built and repaired the space toilet In Season 2(?). He literally wrote the book on space pooping. I would think the manual rests in the rest room for use. Howard is a Grand Poopbah, and a certified Scatologist. in the field, or space station.
  4. Season 5: the Wekend Vortex. This is the most simplistic and egregious episodic error to date. Mrs Wolowitz calls from behind Leonard and Sheldon's door for Howard, and calls out his name Howard Joe Wolowitz. Check out the subtitles confirming this. How does Mrs Wolowitz forget her own son's name? She was there at the birth, and bris, and had at least input as to his name. Hey Mrs Wolowitz, your son's middle name is Joel,not Joe. Fun fact about a bris. Attention all antisemites. If you had a delayed healing wound on your body, and were aided by a cultured skin substitute, you likely have to thank a Jew. Skin equivalent culture tissue can be made from a culture line of donated foreskin (as in a bris). The donated tissue is sometimes used for years. Further, Mr antisemite might be carrying around Jewish tissue in them for the rest of their lives. So, if you have a sudden desire to have a knish, or bagel, this could be why. Also, Mazel Tov! Discrimination in any form is wrong. Season-4 The Agreement Di section. Amy is sitting on a sofa with Sheldon and says 'Dirty, Dirty, Dirty', while twirling her hair, crossing her legs, and gyrating that 'dang' pelvis of hers. (That dang pelvis always seems to get her in trouble). Another example of Amy stress relief techniques.
  5. Waste your own time to your heart's content. There is none so blind, as those who will not see. Your 3rd article states diseases, not pathogens. It includes white blood cell cancer. Just way off topic. I tried to teach you, but you do not understand. Have the forensic pathologist explain it to you. I have better and more important things to do. Bye.
  6. I am not wasting any more time with this.
  7. **SPOILER ALERT*** ATTENTION FELLOW NERDS I believe I know the main secrete in the next Star Wars Movie. Fair Warning*** I believe the next Star Wars movie will reveal that Rey and Kylo Wren are twins. The same way Luke and Leia are twins, separated at birth for their safety, so were Rey and Kylo. There fore Rey's parents were Han Solo, and Princess Leai. Therefore Luke is Uncle Luke. Darth Vader is Grandpa. Perhaps Unkar Plute is a Jedi, because as Obi one looked after Luke, some one on Jakar must have been looking after Rey. Also that would make Rey, Princess Rey. We knkow how much Disney Likes Princesses.
  8. Season 5-The Flaming Spittoon Acquisition. Sheldon states that Amy did surgery on her webbed toes using only nitrous oxide from whipped cream cans. This is impossible. Webbed fingers, or toes can be surgically separated, but tissue expanders, or skin grafts are needed. Just severing the webs leaves voids. Further without x-rays there maybe boney attachments between the webbed digits, requiring at least a osteotome (bone chisel), or bone saw. Further ntrous oxide from whipped cream cans, can kill. This is also called laughing gas. Under laughing gas, you become incompasitated. You could not perform surgery. Whip-its are dangerous. In, for example, a dental office, the nitrous oxide is mixed with oxygen. If pure nitrous oxcide is consumed, you starve your body of oxygen, and die, or at least cause brain tissue death. It is the same as being choked to death. Like wise, even though Elton/ John and Bernie Taupin have a song lyric stating 'I get high in the evening sniffing pots of glue' (The B**ch Is Back). Glues are sometimes solvents and will dissolve the brain fatty (lipid) material. The brain is 60% fat. You will disolve your brain. Not fun.
  9. A fun activity with an Amy and Penny portrait would be to knock on a wooden surface 3 times, and, pointing at Penny, saying Penny, three times.
  10. Have your forensic Pathologist explain it to you. They likely were infected with tainted food, not viruses. I am not going to research established facts. Your request is like asking me to cite a publication proving that 2 + 2 = 4. It is basic facts in the field. Different seasons have bad and uneventful flu infections. Viruses, like AIDS, mutate constantly. The common cold virus is constantly evolving, so that our previous immunity is moot, and it is seen as different to our immune systems. How can you infer Leonard had a subclinical flu attack. When and how was this implied? Read a book on the subject. Take a course in the subject. What degrees do you have? What classes, beside biology have you taken? Your articles are review articles. Get a tutor.
  11. First, I read the abstracts of the 2 articles. I am not computer literate, and did not realize I had to click on 'this study' to get to the articles. Secondly, the 2 articles deal with various viruses, including the flu virus (in general). Viruses mutate. Look at AIDS,the common cold, the flu, warts, etc. Different viruses have different time periods of transmission and time for symptoms to manifest. The 2 articles you reference are review articles concerning different viruses at different times in history. Did you know AIDS was found in a dead sailor's blood sample from 1965? The reason we need a 'new' flu shot is because the flu viruses are differenet. The flu vaccine is the best guess of the current flu viruses in Asia, ATT. The viruses discussed in the 2 articles should vary because they are different. One of the 2 articles reviewed viruses from 1965 to 2005. Yes, viruses vary on transmission and symptom onset over the course of 4 decades of different viruses. Why didn't your Forensic Pathologist point out this simple fact to you? Also, the flu is not likely involved. Why did Leonard not get the pathogen? The pathogen that Sheldon and Penny got simultaneously showed symptoms at the same time because they both got the same pathogen at the same time. If Penny gave the pathogen to Sheldon, she would have symptoms before Sheldon. Since they got symptomatic at the same time, they were exposed tot he same pathogen at the same time. All your 2 articles prove is that different (evolved) pathogens vary in transmission and symptom onset. at different times in history. They vary in time of onset because the are different genotypes. Are you sure your real name is not Stephen Hawking? Do you have any education in the sciences? Read the articles you cite. Again, the 2 articles you reference have nothing to do with this topic. Now, apologize to yourself and me for wasting our time. Get it.
  12. Why so Tense Tensor? I can't teach you. You do not understand Articles. You do not understand Pathogenesis and immunology. Have a friend, physician, explain it to you. This show makes mistakes in different areas. Hence 'Episodic Errors'. The point is this is another error. Seeing computer graphics showing visually invisible particles traveling through space is not proof. They also showed Sheldon as the Flash running to the Grand Canyon and back. I am done. This entire salvo reminds me of the Monty Python skit concerning an argument.
  13. Just let someone educate you on the subject. I could say the sky is blue, but it is not relevant to this topic. I am not here to lecture. I have tried, but you just do not get it. Let's try it this way. Leonard sleeps with Penny. Penny gets sick. Leonard does not get sick. Sheldon gets sick. Penny did not pass her germs to Leonard, because Leonard did not get sick. Leonard should have been sick before Sheldon, by your theory, but Sheldon had the least contact with Penny. Leonard should have been sick before Sheldon. Therefore, Penny and Sheldon got the pathogen simultaneously, and it could not be by contact, because Leonard had all kinds of contact with Penny (the lucky Bas***d). Perhaps, it was foodborne. Perhaps the food had lactose. By your theory, why did Leonard not get sick? Do you get it, now? If not, I am done. Now I understand Sheldon trying to teach Penny physics. Just remember Fig Newton is named for the town, not the scientist. Let me give you an example of a diagnostic challenge. An entire wing of a facility had all women wearing dresses coming down with cellulitis. Women wearing pants, and men did not get cellulitis. Only one wing, not others. The reason I discovered was that one woman horded her dirty clothes. Maggots and flies took off and, filthy with germs, the flies carried the bacteria to all exposed surfaces, while they slept. They all got infected at the same time, because they were all exposed simultaneously. Get It.
  14. I have repeatedly tried to explain to you . Let a friend try to explain it to you. What you repeated state are true facts, but they have no relevance to the topic. I have run QC/QA for a major food maker. I have also diagnosed and treated bacterial, viral, and fungal infections for decades. Also, noone takes Tamflu prior to symptoms. Granted I am honored with your 'male bovine exhaust' comment. It elevates me to the lofty rarefied air of 'Sheldon Cooper is a Smelly Pooper'. Thank you for that I am in good, yet smelly company. Mr Methane would be so proud. I feel like I am floating on air.
  15. FUN FACT: There is an episode of the court room show of Judge Mablean Ephriam where someone is suing her friend, because the friend revengefully advised a tattoo that the plaintive thought was the Chinese symbols for 'courage under fire', but was actually the symbols for 'Chicken Noodle Soup'. The plaintive slept with the defendant's boy friend. It was revenge. Was it Big Bang Theory inspired?
  16. Again, in general, if Sheldon was symptomatic first, and then Penny , then Sheldon probably transmitted the germ to Penny. If Penny showed symptoms first, and then Sheldon, then Penny probably infected Sheldon. If Sheldon and Penny both were symptomatic at about the same moment, then they probably were exposed simultaneously. It is unlikely to be the flu, because Sheldon would have had the flu shot, and /or Tamaflu (or similar med). As another example. Kids get infected at school, and then infect the family. The kid gets sick, and then the parent. What is really strange is that Leonard did not get infected, and spent the time with Raj. Perhaps it was a germ they picked up at the Cheesecake Factory. Maybe even something with lactose. That way Leonard never got exposed. Coliform Bacteria are prevalent in dairy products. This brings to mind Louie Pasteur, and small pox vs cow pox.
  17. What papers to which are you referring? Are you citing peer reviewed published journal articles? Please inform me. Transmission of a pathogen occurs before the immune system is fully in play. If the immune system was in play no pathogen would be passed, because the immune system would stop the germ before transmission would be possible. Let's take your argument that the germ was the flu. Wouldn't Sheldon the Germophobe have gotten the flu shot, and have Tamaflu ( or other antiviral pills) on hand? Sheldon takes a course of antibiotics when Dr Plimpton was about to visit. He has a plethora of topicals to 'ditch that itch'.These are all speculations . We have no facts to even postulate a differential diagnosis. In general, it is most likely the common cold contracted simultaneously.
  18. We do not have enough information to be able to diagnose. A common cold, in general, might be more likely, than the flu. Penny had sym[tom onset at almost the exact same time as Sheldon. They likely had simultaneous exposure to the pathogen. Probably, sadly, the only simultaneous experience Sheldon and Penny will ever share together! N ugh, n ugh. Wink, wink. Say no more.
  19. We can debate fictitious germs. I have had 2 years of pathogenic and diagnostic microbiology, a year of microbiology, and a semester of cytology, I think we can all agree that it is more likely than not, that Penny and Sheldon were exposed to a pathogen, in common, at the same time, and therefore began symptoms at the same time. Season4 Episode 2. Sheldon states that Amy will not dress up as Wonder Woman, because Amy is not the free spirit he is, yet in later seasons dresses in various costumes.
  20. Yes, Amy kissed Penny, but Penny is quite able to stop an unwanted, sudden kiss. Just ask Howard's Face. i think we all can agree that lips have various uses ( not just lips to lips (be they facial, minora, or majora)). Sheldon mathematically thought Penny a 'slut' and inquired about the 31 estimated Penny Partners, and Sheldon is a genius. Is a labial ménage à trois with Amy less slutty? These are fictional characters played by actors. Please do not be offended, and I apologize. It still seems Sheldon thinks Penny is a slut, and asked her. Penny's reply of defiance waned as she repeated the response out loud. I suppose there are varying degrees of general sluttiness, and promiscuity, just ask Leslie Winkle. Penny is great (sans the alcohol addiction), that is why I added the bunny. I was being Dickensian.
  21. The cast should be Grand Marshalls at the Rose Parade.
  22. Penny is pretty free with her lips (that slut bunny). She's kissed Sheldon (with Amy, while holding him down), Raj (when everything became beautiful, Amy (give me some sugar besty), but none for Howard. Penny maybe free with the lips, but she still has standards. To Penny, kissing Howard would be like dragging her tongue across the city dump (and not after the rose parade)..
  23. Okay, here goes. Penny , and Sheldon had symptoms appear simultaneously, there fore they were exposed to the virus/bacteria, at the same time. If Penny was the culprit, then she would have been symptomatic before Sheldon. The virus/bacteria incubate in the human host (as in a petri dish),at a constant speed, usually within 24 hours of culturing, but a 24 hour 'no growth 'dish is saved for 24 more hours to see if any growth occurs after 24 more hours for a total of 48 hours. Also, a person's immune system takes days to detect the foreign virus/bacteria, and then start making antibodies, and begin replicating the antibody producing white blood cells. Aperson's immune system efficiency does not come into play in germ transmission, because the immune system has not begun. Prior exposure would help. It is the reason for vaccines. A disabled virus is given to a patient. The patient does not get the full blown disease, but is protected. When Sheldon and Penny get symptoms simultaneously, they had to be exposed simultaneously, as well. Whether a person has AIDS or a normal immune system, the germs populate at the same speed in each person. Granted genetics come in play. There are people with innate immunity to AIDS. If Penny and Sheldon have normal immune systems, then they could not get simultaneous symptoms, unless they were exposed simultaneously.
  24. Season 3, when the guys have a peeing contest while trying to resolve ownership of the Lord of The Rings ring, Sheldon states his mother 'has a mild addiction to Dr Pepper, but in a later episode Mary Cooper offers Howard a Coke. Did a mild Dr Pepper addiction lead to harder stuff, liike Coke, or was Mary Cooper hording all her Dr Pepper for herself, or does she want to reserve Dr Pepper for Dr Sheldon Lee Cooper, instead of Mr Howard Joel Walowitz??
