Other mistake: While Jerry is looking out the window, to his right, there is a Yankees baseball cap on top of his mini basketball hoop, above his computer monitor. Jerry in real life is a Mets fan, and he alluded to being a Mets fan on the show as well (taping a Mets game, wearing or showing Mets paraphernalia). In no universe would a Mets fan have a Yankees cap on display and vice versa. This was before George got the job at the Yankees so that can't explain it. Was it just bad set design and props?

Factual error: With the size of that red ball (approximately 2.5 foot diameter) and the density of oil (approximately 60 lb/ft^3), the giant ball of oil would weigh 491 pounds. This would be impossible for Kramer and Darren to lift out of the window and would definitely kill anyone it beaned.
