Howard was hypocritical, complaining about Raj going on about dating two women.

Howard did exactly the same thing, about going into space.

I guess, though I think Raj's bragging comes across as far more obnoxious and pathetic than Howard's space bragging. He was going on about not remembering at times which bed he was in Emily or Claire's or how tired he was that he had to service his harem. I mean seriously...

Just goes to show how the storylines can change so much from week to week. It was vintage Raj in Big Bear displaying all the qualities that I like about his character and the next week it's back to douchebag mode.

Can someone explain to me, please, what Sheldon was doing here ?
"♪ Meeting, meeting, bo-beeting ♪

♪ Banana-fana, fo-feeting ♪

♪ Fee-fi mo-meeting... ♪ "

I brought
my famous spinach dip.

Yo, Amy, just one second.

"♪ Meeting. ♪ "

He's not done it ( whatever it is ) with other words so far as I recall.

It a song called "The Name Game" from at least 20 years ago--you say a word or name, then drop the first letter and say it with "bo" in place of that letter, then "banana fana, fo"  before the word, and finally "fee-fi-mo" and the word.  You end with the original word.  You repeat this for several words.  Its a great party game--people get really mixed up doing it.  It's very unusual for Sheldon to sing it.

Thank you.

Heheheheheh, you were right, I Miss Dan, about the "at least".  It's from 1964.    

I wonder how I missed it ? I was very much into pop music in 1964. I lost interest around 1967.

If I catch a cloak in anything I get half strangled and have to stop.

The piece of the spindle that Stuart caught his cloak on, is the bit that sticks out past the wheel nut, and it doesn't turn.

He and the bike are travelling as one, so he isn't being strangled.

It's like getting into a car, and accidentally closing the door on your coat tail.

Thanks. I'm going to take a closer look at that. He must have hit an object in his way on the cycle path.

I've just noticed something.

Amy uses the British "I couldn't care less", rather than the American "I could care less".

No, "I couldn't care less" is not BE it's the correct phrase everywhere. "I could care less" is simply a sort of slang variant that cropped up in the US but as far as I'm aware by no means seen as the proper idiom. An academic like Amy would of course use the proper phrase.

Well I noticed something about Amy/Mayim in the last episode....Amy was eating with a fork using her left hand. I've seen pics of Amy on Instagram writing with her right hand......

I think we've recently discussed this recently elsewhere: Mayim is right handed but due to her accident a few years ago she seems to have taken up the habit of using her left hand more and some of these seem to have stuck, like the way she eats.

I never thought otherwise, but I've actually just spent several minutes wondering what the first sentence meant. I finally grasped that BE were the initials of British English. Blame my education. I was taught my BE plus a little BW over 60 years ago in a Welsh primary school.

At the very moment he caught his cape on the axle stub?

What else could it be ? Were it otherwise, the physicists would have noticed.

Oh yeah, sorry about that. When I learned English back in school we used BE and AE for British and American English respectively and it stuck with me.
