  1. Nerd Alert; Ingenuity the Mars Helicopter flew carrying a piece of the Wright Brother's plane aboard. Blades rotating at about 2500 rpm. Someone tell Sheldon, Amy Howard, and Raj.
  2. We know of at least one male where there is nothing but apparent mutual admiration: Cookie Monster. She want cookie. If there was any misogyny, he would not be displayed on her right buttock. Also, we learn that they both have a yen for soup. The true test would be to see if Cookie Monster has a Penny tattoo on his right buttock. Leonard even tried to sound like Cookie Monster to woo Penny. Leonard laments. Ernie empathizes. Cookie Monster munches cookies.
  3. Fair warning: put your fingers in your ears for this one. Are you hearing me? Listen, Penny sounds awful rehearsing for Rent, yet can purr a Soft Kitty ditty, even in a round with Sheldon, and can sing til she comes, til she comes with much gusto, with Sheldon, no less, during the Penny Blossom episode. I wonder if Mayim enjoyed the blossom reference? It just doesn't sound right. You can't fix tone deaf. To paraphrase A great singer, 'You either got, or you haven't got 'tone''. I think there was something wrong with her throat.
  4. Great points, well written. Concerning acting, it seems like acting requires talent and luck: a big break. In the series we were shown Penny's acting talents: A Street Car Named Desire, Penny acting like she would not resist Leonard if he moved in (but he was already there from the pilot episode-Our babies will be smart and beautiful). You don't have to push hard, if they were 'already gone'. I like to think Penny's acting skills aided her success in Pharm sales. Penny should stay earshot from any musical, but wouldn't it be interesting if Broadway put on a musical-comedy where all singers w
  5. Penny should have been revealed to have a higher I.Q. than Sheldon. Think it over. Penny played chess for the first time and beat Leonard. Many things bore Penny: a true characteristic of geniuses. Also, some self-medicate, perhaps as Penny does with alcohol. as recently displayed in the Hemmingway PBS 6 hour series. There are a multitude of examples in many episodes of Penny quickly coming up with problem solutions faster and better than any other cast member. Penny even inspired Sheldon and all the cast members to evolve, improve, reach goals. Q.E.D. Discuss.
  6. Whether you're funny, or horny, or just think you are, you'd like this. In the episode where Howard, Bernadette, and Amy were having a dinner at a diner , and they debated whether Bernadette could fake a laugh over Howard's jokes, and then began to prove it, and abruptly stopped. The writers should have then recreated the diner scene from when. "When Harry met Sally", where Sally faked an orgasm, and abruptly stopped. Rob Reiner had his mother turn to a waitress, and say, "I'll have what she's having." The writing staff should have offered the role to Rob Reiner's mother. If not, then someon
  7. Everything is ducky with this one. I hope it quacks you up. In the season 3 episode where Sheldon 'gallantly?' (as Sheldon said -'the hero always peeks') assists Penny. when she falls in the tub due to lack of whimsical adhesive ducks holding umbrellas, Sheldon explains his use of adhesive foul impersonating Gene Kelly (Singing in The Rain). The error is that in the first episode Penny uses the bathroom to shower. She would have seen the duckies beneath her feet, and seen their value first hand (or first foot). Fun Fact: a group of adhesive ducks are also called (or duck called), a raft,
  8. First, it saddens me that your friends have such horrible problems. Historic inbreeding is passed on to unsuspecting ;generations. I was waiting for an e-mail from your source, but it has not occurred. So, I will comment on each passage to hopefully clarify. What is the chance of having a child with severe abnormalities? Unrelated parents have a risk of about 2 in 100 (2%) of having a child with an abnormality from birth, which can be severe/lethal. Parents who are first cousins have an extra risk of about 3 in 100 (3%), giving them a total risk of about 5 in 100 (5%). ((A 60% in
  9. An apple away keeps the doctor at bay. In the 1st season episode where Leonard presents a paper concerning a 4th state of mater, a super solid, Sheldon argues Sir Isaac Newton's anecdote of an apple falling on his head inspiring him to discover gravity's laws was not just an anecdote. Current thought argues Newton's apple concussion never occurred. Not only was the statement not an anecdote, but also a falsehood. Though the apple noggin is 'intoxicating', there are easier ways of trying to possibly discover apple sauce. Cross my heart and hope to die, 'stick a needle in my eye', as, in the nam
  10. This entry kick's *ss. This is not an episodic error, but something Raj might have mentioned, and commented. In 2029 a comet named Apophis, in 2004, was thought to have a 2.7% chance of hitting Earth (currently not a threat) Next year Didymos (meaning twin) is a twin set of comets (the smaller orbiting around the larger) that will be passing near Earth. Because of its proximity to Earth, it will be part of the DART mission. The DART mission is to learn how to divert threatening comets in the future. from collision with Earth. In other words, they will learn to kick Didymos in the Epididymis.
  11. I'll be cheeky about this one. This is a Cross Connection (as in the 'Young Sheldon' Topic), not an Episodic Error. In the episode where Amy feigns illness to continue getting Sheldon's attention under false pretenses, Sheldon administers corporal punishment to Amy's bottom line. In the great Thanksgiving episode where Zak and Penny sign an annulment, Sheldon got all hands on. Sheldon swats Amy's keister in appreciation, again, pubic ly . Sheldon is an equal opportunity swatter. We all know Sheldon loves symmetry, and order. Even when forced to be asymmetrical, Sheldon can not rest until min
  12. With respect, I only am allowed to currently play in your sand box at your whim. At any moment you may decide to ban me, or censor me (once again), or give me a warning (once again), or ban me forever. Your logic is flawed. The issues only concern 2nd cousins or closer, not the general population. You don't seem like yourself in your logic and writing skills. You seem more like someone else. Get me the full article you cited, and I will look it over. I refuse to register on the quoted site to simply read the full article. Don't add your own commentary to your posted numbers, just quote the s
  13. This is truly 'breaking it down individually'. More relevant to this argument are recessive gene disorders, than dominant gene disorders, not all genetic defects. In dominant genotypic disorders, only one parent need carry the gene for phenotypic expression. In recessive disorders, both parents must possess the defective gene for expression. In a recessive gene disorder, if both parents possess the recessive gene (like Tay-Sachs), the chance of Tay-Sachs disease, and death by age 5 is 25%. No one wants that risk of their child dying needlessly. Further, if the 25% chance of brutal death is st
  14. Respectfully, you already showed us a peer reviewed paper to refute your own contention. It is not just my contention, but also your provided fact. If you only read your referenced article past the 2nd paragraph, you too would have conceded your erroneous point without this 'back and forth' banter. Granted, this is your sandbox, as you previously pointed out to me, and you but permit me to play in it, for the moment, but your argument contradicts your own point. More relevant to this argument are recessive gene disorders, than dominant gene disorders, not all genetic defects. In dom
  15. Again, the 2nd paragraph of your quoted article states twice the frequency of genetic disorders in 2nd cousins (or closer) vs non-related parents. Doubling anything negative is very bad, and unnecessary for their children, and future familial generations. The risks are a personal decision, but the couple is also choosing for all future generations, as well. I can't find your referenced numbers with your posted web site. Your quoted stats do not provide context. For example, are the stats for recessive genes. I can't obtain more information from your quoted article link without joining some ser
  16. "One billion people worldwide live in countries where marriage among relatives is common. Of this billion, one in three is married to a second cousin or closer relative or is the progeny of such a marriage.12 The frequency of genetic disorders among such children is around twice that in children of non-related parents.12".
  17. I just posted a quote from your referenced article. It is the second paragraph contradicting your passage. With respect, it is your own opined reference.
  18. With all respect, if your position was true, then genetic testing and counseling for diseases like Tay-Sachs would not be offered preconception to more highly suspect inbred groups like Ashkenazi Jews, French-Canadians of Quebec, Pennsylvania Dutch Amish, Cajun Louisianans, and not to others. Further, I went to your above referenced site. a footnote backed quote states. "One billion people worldwide live in countries where marriage among relatives is common. Of this billion, one in three is married to a second cousin or closer relative or is the progeny of such a marriage.12 The fre
  19. The saddest truism is, if not for cultural inbreeding, recessive genetic diseases, like Tay-Sachs, would not as prevalently exist. Evolution has greatly hidden the probability of 2 parents having the same rare chromosomal abnormality producing sickened offspring. The odds increase with inbreeding. There are enough deadly diseases, humans need not add to the numbers, when they can simply be avoided. Avoiding planned inbreeding is an easy cure. Especially compared to the resultant potential horrors. Further, if intellect was so genetic, then the great minds of history would be replaced by their
  20. Putting morality, and cultural preferences aside, there exist the pure genetic diseases. In pets, inbred pure breeds result in greater chance of recessive genetic disorders to be phenotypically presented. Genetic variety quells genetic expression of recessive genetic disorders. In humans, extremely sadly, genetically inbred groups lead to increased risk of autosomal recessive genetic disorders, such as dreaded Tay-Sachs Disease. I always thought it was potentially found in Ashkenazi Jews, but also more closed genetic human groups like French-Canadians from the Louisiana bayou, and Pennsylvan
  21. This is not a true episodic error, but more a true cross connection involving the original series. Meaning, this should make one cross (upset), and is cross (because it crosses barriers), and is definitely a connection that should not be crossed. We all have the fact branded in our brains that Howard Wolowitz had sex with his cousin, Jeanie. and Howard would defend by immediately retorting, "She was my 'second' cousin". Yeah, that makes it all better. Apparently, ex-mayor Rudolph Giuliani, was once involved with his second cousin, and married her. It is hard to outpace Howard Wolow
  22. Let me churn this one out. In the most recent episode, Young Sheldon allegorically demonstrated the philosophical principle of Traditionalism, by shaking a container of cream to make butter. Older Sheldon churned butter to make Amy a traditional meal for her birthday. Sheldon must really love Amy because he commented, as a child, how hard and painful it was (and still is) to produce his first batch. Fun Fact: while working at an ice cream plant, we would get multiple deliveries of heavy cream in approximately 50,000 gallon truck loads. The loads would typically come from neighboring states.
  23. This one is a bloody mess. In the 11th season episode where Leonard is writing a mystery who done it, he is shot, and Raj's character proclaims soda water will get that stain out. Yes, I guess many things might help, but the best is peroxide. Not soda water. Peroxide is H2O2 versus water H2O. Even 'bone' dry, peroxide will get out blood stains. Peroxide primarily attacks the ferrous hemoglobin molecule. It gives blood its red color, as opposed to blue (copper based) horseshoe crabs (or Andorians), or green Vulcans. When the peroxide is working, it causes a white foaming action, which is a bre
  24. This is a Sharp-ie one. Howard famously wore a declaration of his of Fruit Loops enjoyment on his face, while looping the Earth. In 2 and a Half Men ,senior Charlie Harper wore the moustache (as Raj would say). A Sharpie crisscrossing connection .Write on!
  25. Now, this is not an episodic error, but a nerd error. In an earlier episode, when Penny went out with Stuart to an art exhibit, Penny offered for Stuart to come in for coffee, and Stuart commented that it was a little late for coffee. Penny then said that Stuart thought coffee meant coffee. Penny said she thought she had decaf. In a later episode, Raj finished his first planetarium show, and an audience member suggested going for coffee. Raj said it was a little late for coffee. Penny walked between to tell Raj, 'decaf genius'. Penny was a a nerd whisperer. For clarity, I had much more writt
