I too was asking myself this question, and had to go back and watch the movie over again. Here's how I see the movie turning out without Indiana Jones' presence. Regardless of whether Indiana led the Nazi's to Marion, they would have found her anyways. They already knew that Abner Ravenwood had the amulet, like the U.S. Army Intelligence officers told ...

Tod Browning's controversial cult horror film Freaks from 1932. The central story is of this conniving trapeze artist Cleopatra, who seduces and marries sideshow midget Hans after learning of his large inheritance. At their wedding reception, the other "freaks" announce that they accept Cleopatra in spite of her being a "normal" outsider; they hold an ...

It is never explained that I know of. But Pasadena is in the middle of an area with several top notch universities (A couple of UCs, USC, loads of CSUs and of course CalTech) so there must've been loads of graduate students and perhaps not that many appropriate lab jobs.

Well, we do have at least one clue for Sheldon Cooper and Leonard Hofstadter, in that in episode 1.9 "The Cooper-Hofstadter Polarization", they were invited to co-present a paper on super solids, which comes from the quantum field. Leonard was also awarded dissertation of the year for his doctoral thesis on experimental particle physics. Sheldon concentrates ...

Aside from the Would the Nazis have found Marion without Indy? issue mentioned in the other answers, there also the matter of getting the Ark to Germany: After the Ark of the Covenant was recovered, Dietrich planned to transport the treasure back to Germany in a plane, ...         [IndyGear.com] Indy's plan was to "hijack" the ...

In addition to the other answers, it's also worth pointing out that she only worked at the Cheesecake Factory until the Season 4 finale. Per the Wikipedia: Bernadette worked at the Cheesecake Factory with Penny to pay off her debts in graduate school, studying to become a microbiologist. She met Howard at work as Penny introduced the couple. In the ...

It's distinctly reminiscent of a turn of the century morse code tapper (AKA a telex), something like the one below;

I don't believe Amy is correct, and it relates to a scene that isn't in the movie. We know that the nazis had the wrong length staff because they only had one side of the head piece. Other posters have argued whether or not the nazis obtain the head piece from Marion without him...let's assume they do... I don't remember where I heard this but there's a ...

The main question to answer this question is: Did Indy lead Belloq to Marion? If he did, then Belloq would never have found the headpiece of the staff and thus the rest would not have transpired, thus Indy was quintessential to them finding the Arc. Indy did inadvertently lead Belloq and Dietrich there. Belloq knew Indy would know where to find the headpiece ...

An alternative interpretation of your question "Is Amy's assertion correct, did Indiana Jones play no role in the outcome of the story? Answer: It really depends on what you refer to as the "story". If what you call as the story is "the ultimate fate of the ark", then one can make an argument one way or another. However, if the true story of the movie ...

Here's something funny to think about...the very beginning of Raiders. When Indy hunts down the golden Idol within the cave of just about every obstacle imaginable. Belloq is fresh on his heels which leads me to believe that if Indy never got to the Idol first, navigating the treacherous landscape, then Belloq and his spear wielding minions would have tried ...

Unlike Sheldon and Leonard, she doesn't have student loan debts. She doesn't go out much and when she does it's mostly to her job (where she gets a discount). Her car isn't new and need repairs, so she's most likely not paying off a car loan. In comparison, Leonard's crew go to comic cons, buy movie trinkets, stay up with the latest electronics, have nice ...

Later in the "Closet" episode, Howard is seen looking through pictures of him (one with cornrows) and his father under the label "Photos of Wolowitz family before father left forever." It is plausible that there was a picture included with the letter and Sheldon chose to organize the picture and letter separately. Regardless of that possibility, the ...

If you look at this factually.... well... I mean actually LOOK at this whole thing. Words don't do it justice. Ringed by footprints, sitting in the moondust, lies a 2-foot wide panel studded with 100 mirrors pointing at Earth: the "lunar laser ranging retroreflector array." Apollo 11 astronauts Buzz Aldrin and Neil Armstrong put it there on July 21, ...

Well the writers needed Bernadette to meet Howard somehow. If Penny was to set them up, Penny and Bernadette needed to know each other. Hence, she works at the Cheesecake Factory.

Unfortunately it has never been mentioned on the show but I too have wondered what the others IQ's are. I believe that based on how Sheldon believed that Raj knew what the anthropic principle was and believed Leonard did not could mean that Raj may be possibly smarter than Leonard. I am a big fan of the show and think that the order of IQ is... Sheldon ...
