I want to ride my bicycle, I want to ride my bike... In the beginning of a season 10 episode, when Bert wins the Mc Arthur Award, Sheldon walks by the broken elevator with the gang, and sees a bicycle. He comments that if he could ride a bike, he would steal it. Yet, in a recent Young Sheldon episode, Young Sheldon learned to ride a bike without training wheels. Now, it is commonly said you never forget how to ride a bike. Plus, Sheldon does not forget. I seem to recall there are 2 types of memory, declarative (memory expressed vocally, or written), and procedural   (memory expressed as learned tasks). We may loose the former, but the latter is stored in deeper brain areas, and are more difficult to forget. So, fear not, old tasks. Pick up that old instrument, play that game, wield that light saber, ride that bike. ((but be carful)) However, Sheldon never told Leonard that Amy taught him to drive a car. Perhaps, he can also fly a helicopter, or plane. He likely cashed in his Leonard gift card for train driving training. Woo woo, or, as Amy might say, Woo Hoo.

Besides getting a drivers license he also got a fishermans license!

I don't think Amy actually said Woo Hoo. I believe it was just Who or Hoo.

Two things he will never use. Especially since he surrendered his Driver's License to the Officer who ticketed him for speeding and maybe reckless driving.

Amy's 'Woo Hoo' is the Beverly Hofstadter 'Yikes!' equivalency. Amy day dreamed about Choo Choo Sheldon. Amy remarked 'Woo Hoo' while being spanked by Sheldon. (She was very bad.) Also, Sheldon dreamed that Penny was paddling Leonard in his converted bedroom. Also, Dr Beverly ping ponged Dr Alfred Hofstadter, while Leonard hoped he dreamt. The only other ping pong paddle use was Amy, Raj, Penny, in a game.

Sorry, I never saw that. Must have been something I fast forwarded as I have a habit of doing to Shamy episodes.

More than likely she took the shower then went to her apartment to change,. Not every thing is an error. I watch to enjoy the show, not to look for errors. The so called errors don't bother me. I consider them meaningless.

In season 2, Penny asks Sheldon if Leonard ever dated anyone that was not a brainiac. Sheldon tells that Leonard had dated a French LIterature Doctorate, replying she was not a brainiac, because for one she was French, and second, it was literature. Yet later in season 2, when Leonard recaps his past girlfriends (in front of Sheldon), Leonard tells of Joyce Kim, and Leslie Winkle, but forgot, pardon my French, his trip to Paris, without a passport. 

Yeah I always thought it was weird Leonard never mentionned her , it's not like he had been that many women at this point! Maybe she was just really forgettable . Also, I'm French and  i was actually  annoyed the first time i heard Sheldon's comment " Well, for one thing she was French" 😑  I'm very easily annoyed , mind you 😆 but i just though it was a stupid thing to say. Or maybe it's an American stereotype of French people that I wasn't aware of ? I understand it was just a silly throwaway line so no big deal really ( and we've heard far worse on the show).

EpisoDIC Error, or was it? FUn Fact:: In season 1, and I think other seasons, Raj would use a 'thumbs up' gesture to signal 'okay', but in many cultures around the world, especially the middle east, it is a 'FU Fact'. So, in season 1 Raj signals to Penny with 2 'thumbs up' with a big smile on his face. Maybe he knew that he would, sometime in the future, get to 'partly' fulfill that fantasy predDICtion. Notice how I left out the ''kensian', and 'tator'. An even bigger 'finger 'pointing moment was later in season 2, when Raj comes to apologize to Penny for his behavior at his People Party (30 at 30), and Leonard only sees Penny hugging Raj early in the morning, at her doorway. Raj turns to Leonard and broadly smiles at Leonard while giving two enthusiastic 'thumbs up'.  That moment can now have an entirely additional meaning. That was all he and I wrote.

The thumbs up in the hallway was to mess with Leonard to think more happened than did happen. Penny dispelled that nonsense by chasing his sorry ass away. There was no error in the episode. Everyone knew what the thumbs up meant.

You are right. I took that line to mean a PhD  in a student's own presumed native language is an easier study, than a nonnative language. Rightfully stated by you. Sometimes it takes each of us being educated as to something hurtful, and letting it propagate to others, as you just did. C'est bon.

Personally, I don't see anything any different than all the other condescending, cruel, insulting remarks he made about everyone, thing or place during the 12 year run of the show. It was just Sheldon being Sheldon.

I don't think he said it, as an insult to French people.

I think he said it, to point out how easy studying French would be, to someone who is French.

I think I remember a Mike and Molly episode, sister Victoria, says she is still fearful whenever she sees a chimp, or a little old Greek lady. Equating an old woman as chimp like is sad.

Don't know if this counts as an episodic error but: In season 9  ep. 2  "Separation Oscillation"  when the guys are in the cafeteria and Mandy Chao walks in Howard says "why are Marine Biologists always so hot"  which made me think if she is a Marine Biologist how can she work every day with Leonard who is an experimental physicist, really I think two different fields of study

On the expedition, I'm sure there were several different fields of study on the ship. I don't think she worked with Leonard. She probably did her own experiments.

Let me give you the finger (facts). In the episode where Leonard is telling Penny about, when Leonard met Sheldon (When Harry met Sally). . Leonard ended up trying to tame, and paint her man feet. Later in the series Leonard, once again, was treating her man hands. Penny enthusiastically remarks she had no idea how well he did this. Now, Penny might forget, but I doubt Leonard would. I never did anything like that for a girlfriend, but I would remember, if I did. Fun Finger Facts: fingernails and toenails are different. If you look closely at each, you will see nail ridges. In fingernails the ridges are tip to back (vertical), and toenails run side to side (horizontal). It is thought this is due to the varying stresses on the hand and foot nail plates. It is like adaptive exoskeletal structural supports. I wonder if those that had a great toe (hallux), transplanted to replace a damaged thumb, might eventually have different ridges, because of the different stresses?  Error within an error. Zak once stated to Sheldon that all thumbs are fingers, but not all fingers are thumbs. Sheldon agreed, but in the transplanted thumb amputee, some thumbs can possibly be toes. So, all thumbs are not fingers, and not all fingers are thumbs. All mammals have the same structures in each hand or foot, they are just altered through evolution. For example, a horse has hooves, which are two fingernails and two toenails, on two fingers or toes. A horse shoe goes under one nail. So, whether the horse is My Little Pony, Trigger, Silver or Scout, or even Mr Ed; whether the horse is trotting, or galloping, and especially up on its hind legs; they are all just trying to give the finger.  I have just fingered this. I have just fingered you about fingers, and I figured how to finger, about fingers, myself.  Won't someone give me a hand, or at least a finger? Is  it thumbs up, or down? 

Remarkable! 😁

Episodic Error: In Dr Beverly's book, 'Needy Baby, Greedy Baby', per Penny, and confirmed by Leonard, he favored one breast vs the other, making Dr Beverly lopsided. Yet Leonard is lactose intolerant, and could not go left, or right.  He is like a puppy eating chocolate, no matter how much wanted, it is ultimately unhealthy. Let's hope Penny and Leonard's baby is lactose tolerant. Cheers! Fart!  

Fun Facts about Fun Bags (as Howard might say). Mammalian breasts are evolutionary variations of sweat glands. Varying breasts occur in various presentations in various mammals along bilateral  potential milk lines. They vary based on the potential number of offspring, and needed mammalian breast structural access by the offspring. Variations occur within each species. In humans, 2 are typical, more or less. Also, there are superfluous nipples: underdeveloped supernumerary breasts.   Since mammalian breasts are modified sweat glands, mammalian milk is modified sweat. Females typically produce milk, but rarely males can also. For example, male cocaine addiction can cause male lactation. Per  Penny,  Leonard once said, his breast friends. They may be his breast friends, but, be they left or right, he can't ultimately  tolerate either. As Leonard might sing: 'Soft _itty, Warm _itty, Little bowl of milk. Happy _itty, Sleepy  _itty, Burp, Burp, Burp'.


Lactose is milk sugar. Lactose intolerance means those people lack the enzyme to break the disaccharide into monosaccharides (Glucose and Galactose(Gala is Greek for milk)). Its 1 dividing into 2. Once this division occurs, the digestion is safely possible. 

 

It's like termites. Termites chew wood and swallow, but need the paramecia in its digestive tract to break down the wood into digestible nourishment. Without the paramecia the termite wood die. Symbiosis. Chew on that for a while, just not too roughly, and digest. 

 

From what I have read, children normally are not lactose intolerant at birth as they need lactose to survive. They usually develop the lactose intolerance later in childhood. So this is not an error.

Similac, et al.  Lactose is just two different simple sugars for energy, carbohydrates. Lactose is never needed for survival. Many sugars ,and even proteins can replenish ATP from ADP, such as: glucose, fructose (fruit sugar), maltose (malt sugar). 

Similac is not needed since babies, as a rule, aren't lactose intolerant at birth. Similac  is used for babies that aren't lactose intolerant as well.

Was watching a rerun the other day a caught Sheldon misinforming the public due to a writer's error. Sheldon said a Van Dyke was a goatee with no mustache. When in fact a Van Dyke is mustache with hair on the chin, mistakenly referred to as a goatee. While a goatee is in fact a Van Dyke with no mustache. Just hair on the chin like a billy goat's gruff hence the name goatee.

Molecules, chucky, Several posts have been hidden.   Negative or dismissive comments about or toward other members are not allowed.  If you feel a post is outside of our rules, report, it, don't respond with similar comments.   

That said, please remember that "I read it on Google" and/or  a litany of claimed experience provide the same amount of support for your claims or refutations:  NONE.   You either provide a link for your claims and refutations, or understand your claims and refutations are just so much male bovine exhaust.  

BTW, I went and did some research about this mess, and found you are both partially right, and both partially wrong.  This discussion is over.

Too bad we can't ask Mandy Chao, or Leonard  about that. I'm sure one of them might be able to lay a finger on the subject matter, or, at least, point us in the right direction. 

Personally, I don't care. To me, that boat kiss was something stupid the writers threw in for no good reason other than to take the sting off of Shamy breaking up.
