  1. Sadly, I can relate to Raj's lonliness more than I can anyone or anything else on the show. Not his mutism, his lonliness. It's the only real thing on the show. Most nerds aren't doctors at the top of their field who are chosen to be an astronaut or picked to be in magazines. Raj's awkwardness around women, while exaggerated, is quite relatable.

    All I ask is that if they do somehow fix his mutism, he doesn't just turn into some smooth talking stud who suddenly has a gf. I'd like them to make it so he can talk, but still struggles through the awkwardness of trying to be with a girl.

  2. Still say the 'cheater' in the group is Raj. Howard would be wise to keep a careful watch on his friend.

    You think Raj still has the hots for Bernie?

    Raj has the hots for any girl that gives him the time of day. I wouldn't trust Raj for one second.

  3. Yeah, but they had a few inconsistencies in the Star Wars gaming episode. Most notable, all 5 were in a party together, yet SW:TOR only lets you have a party size of 4 people. Also, they were just starting their characters. It takes a while in the game before you get your first light saber, they seemed to have them from the get go. Also, the way partying works in that game, at the beginning they would all be out doing their intro story missions and would only slightly actually be able to team up and help each other, as they'd all have differing quests to do based on their class. And even when partying, in certain story missions that will let you bring help, you can only have one of a certain class. If you're a Sith Assassin, when doing your story missions, no other Sith Assassins can be in your party. Seeing as how they chose Rebels, and there are only 3 classes to choose from at the start, there would be some overlap and they all wouldn't be able to play together at first.

  4. Monday (oatmeal day)

    Complete the line: Sheldon: I’m sorry. Ooh, Penny, it’s as if the Cheesecake Factory is run by ...........

    Witches...

    What is Raj's favorite mixed drink?

  5. Don't think He will cheat but as far as Bernie being "Hot" enough if the wedding dress didn't make your heart skip a beat then I say we burn the wardrobe dept. at the stake :icon_lol:

    Bernie, IMO, is the hottest girl on the show. Way hotter than Penny. But, I think if Bernie had Penny's IQ/Personality, then I would change that diagnosis.

  6. I think the Howard's mom thing is way different, Howard's mom is used as comic relief..seeing her might change that. Knowing Penny's last name doesn't change any of that, its just a curious thing.

    I agree... I actually didn't like the brief glimpse we see of her on the roof after the wedding. Now, the concept of how fat she really is has been answered. And I must say, while she was a large woman, she isn't the grotesque Jabba-sized beast the other characters made her out to be. It actually makes some of the comments made about her by some of the characters on the show to be quite quite cruel.

    I wish they didn't show her up there...

    You could see her that clearly? I couldn't, not even in the still someone posted. It just seemed like a small red blur.

    It was enough to see how large a woman she was.

    We've heard many comments about her size: It would be easier to pick up a car, I took our love and threw it under his bus sized mother, you'd fall through the roof before you fall off it.

    But, she wasn't *that* big. It goes from funny to making them all sound kinda douchey.

  7. I doubt it. Sheldon probably washes his hand 1,000 times per day. That activity does not translate to good tv however.

    Come to think of it, we haven't seen Sheldon compulsively rush off to wash his hands even once? We did see him use Purell once, but that was after handling a snake. I would do the same. :) He's also used baby-wipe sometimes.

    He does run off after drinking Leonard's water and using Leonard's napkin. He is super anal about his hands when he is at the hospital with Howard's mom.

  8. I think the Howard's mom thing is way different, Howard's mom is used as comic relief..seeing her might change that. Knowing Penny's last name doesn't change any of that, its just a curious thing.

  9. Also, Priya isn't around, so Raj isn't being forced to choose between the two. He can hang with Leonard, and still Skype with his sister the way he would have before she was introduced into the show.

  10. Well put and very much agree on various points stated now the question would be how does one go about stating thier p.o.v. without the smell of "torches" burning or the clanking of "pitch forks".Is it really so hard to stay "On Topic" and keep comments to the show and not bring one's personal life into a thread which here lately seems to be a few peoples idea of how to prove a point about a "fictional" tv show with "fictional" characters in it.I believe the topic was "Penny should go out with Sheldon" or was there a "Type-O"???

    Yes it is. Our opinions on anything are based off of personal experience and investigation. It is very easy to fill in the blanks with assumptions that a person doesn't understand is an assumption. So, from time to time, it is needed to point out to someone that a particular thought or action is not universal, but local to the poster, and not something that "everyone" does or everyone will see the same way. It does sometimes need to be personal, but doesn't always have to be negative. I grew up on a tourist beach. There are many things in life I probably don't even question that I should, because not everyone has my life's experiences. Things I think are automatic simply aren't.

  11. Lol! Hmm. I'm Indian. I'll think about it. :D

    Forgive me your highness for I am but a monkey and it is in my nature to climb. I did not mean to gaze upon you as you comb your hair.

    You're practising picking up Indian chicks? :p

    I need all the practice I can get... Indian or not... =)

    Good to meet a fellow nerd.

    People signed my high school year book mentioning about how much I knew about Star Wars... =P

  12. I agree with the Penny and Leonard dynamic. As it stands now, Penny could say or do anything and Leonard would still want to be with her. Penny has made it clear several times that as far as she is concerned there is absolutely no chance of Leonard ever being interested in someone else or wanting to leave her regardless of what she does. It's great to have absolute trust in someone you are seeing but not to the point that you feel that you can do whatever you want as far as they are concerned. Penny needs to be shook up and if it is even for just a minute, worry about Leonard leaving her for someone else. You should never take someone else in a relationship with you for granted.

    But didn't that already happen, to some extent, when Leonard got into a relationship with Priya? I thought that was when Penny realized that (as Amy had commented in truth or dare) she couldn't take for granted that Leonard would hang around waiting for her. And that made her understand that she regretted leaving him.

    I think Leonard is better than before, now, in standing up to Penny, though he still has a long way to go. And Penny's comment to Amy that Leonard can never do anything to hurt her, did make me wonder if she's still taking him for granted.

    But Penny and Leonard weren't together then, and Penny took great lengths to hide her feelings from Leonard. Yes did Penny realized it then, but when they got back together, it's like everything she learned was tossed out the window. The way she keeps him waiting on the sidelines until everything can happen and progress on her terms. Granted, Leonard is JUST as guilty for letting her get away with it. Both of them are handling their new venture together immaturely.

  15. He said he was a senior theoretical particle physicist, if I recall. Does that denote a particular seat or position at Caltech? Most of the senior faculties at my institute would call themselves that, for example.

    Not sure if that is a "seat", but he is definitely the top dog at the university in the realm of particle physics. He would so easily be allowed to go the LHC anytime he wanted. Unless... there's a restraining order from someone in charge of the LHC against him. But, then he wouldn't have been able to go with Leonard anyway...

  16. Maybe he thinks aliens kidnapped his dad... or, just as a fan of space, he likes aliens... I do like his pins though... I kept looking like crazy at the scenes of him in the Soyuz capsule to see if he had an alien pin somewhere. I didn't see one, but will look again.
