Factual error: "Kemo" is in the kitchen preparing food while everyone is studying. We see him putting raw meat (brains) in a pan, and then in real time we see him having a discussion with Pancho, and Pancho walks out. Kemo then says the food is done and asks if anyone wants some - but there's been no more than 60 seconds since he put it in.
