Sheldon does say it, but he uses the initialism when introducing himself at the start of the lecture they are presenting: Good morning and welcome to Science and Society. I’m Dr. Sheldon Cooper, BS, MS, MA, PhD, and ScD. OMG, right? Perhaps that joke was a little too hippie-dippy for this crowd. All right then, we’ll begin with opening remarks. Miss ...

This is one of those ways in which the research on the show utterly fails to reflect how real science is done. Of the examples you listed which were presented as failures: His antarctic research is based on faked measurements This is serious scientific fraud, assuming it made it to publication, and in reality would cost the entire group their ...

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, ...

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 ...

Sheldon obviously considers Raj to be more intelligent than Leonard. It's demeonstrated numerous times. What's more Raj is arguably the most successful scientist of the 3. Certainly more successful than Leonard. Raj is very close to Sheldon in IQ. Probably around 178-180. Kripke is Sheldon's intellectual superior. He regularly surpasses Sheldon's work in ...

There is also the anything-can-happen Thursday, though I'm not sure how long that went on for and when it was swapped for pizza night. It might also possibly be mentioned at some point that they visit the Cheesecake Factory on Wednesdays, but I'm not entirely sure. I don't think any of the other weekly day-specific activities are mentioned by which night ...

It was in the end of season 6, after Leonard leaves for his sea expedition with Stephen Hawking. AFAIR, it was after they return from the airport(?) when Penny and Raj suddenly realize that Raj is able to talk with her despite not having drunk any alcohol for three days. Edit: Sorry, I saw the comment above too late, but to be complete here, it was The Bon ...

I don't actually see anything in the Wikipedia article about Bill 101 (or in a brief perusal of the actual document) that requires film/tv/book titles (or even the series itself) to be translated into French (if you can find a specific section that does, please post it). I'm guessing this falls under Canadian free speech. In fact, I can't even find a "view ...
