Bart vs. Australia - S6-E16

Corrected entry: When Homer check the bills, he finds out Bart called Burkina Faso. He was trying to call countries in the Southern Hempisphere, when Burkina Faso is actually in the Northern Hemisphere.

Correction: Character mistake by Bart.

Bart vs. Australia - S6-E16

Corrected entry: Homer looks at the phone bill of places Bart has phoned and says "Birkina Faso? Disputed zone?" but Birkina Faso is in the northern hemisphere. And it isn't stupidity because Bart was looking for countries on his globe.

Correction: When Lisa is explaining about the water, Bart shows that he doesn't even know what a hemisphere is. He could have easily forgotten where the line was that Lisa had pointed out to him and was just calling random places. In addition, he could have called other Northern countries to verify the statements.

Bart vs. Australia - S6-E16

Corrected entry: In this episode Marge flies to Australia in a plane. Doesn't she have a fear of flying?

Correction: Yes, but in the episode where her phobia was first introduced, she was also seen to overcome her fear through therapy. Lots of people have fear of flying and still manage to keep it in check when they have to.

Bart vs. Australia - S6-E16

Corrected entry: Both the Australian boy's father and Marge say that the call cost $900. However America and Australia have their own dollars and hence different currencies. Because of the exchange rates, surely one of the values would have been different.

Correction: At the time they are told about what they owe they are being notified the amount is $900 AUSTRALIAN dollars. Because of exchange rates changing every day, the currency difference will only be made an issue when the amount is actually bought. The Simpsons as well weren't likely going to be able to afford the expensive call so I don't think how much it would be in US dollars was going to be much of a concern.

Bart vs. Australia - S6-E16

Corrected entry: When Bart makes a phone call to the Australian boy, it is daytime in both Springfield and Australia. However when the Australian boy's father phones Bart, it is again daytime in Australia but night-time in Springfield. But due to the Earth's rotation, surely it would have to be night-time in Australia or possibly very early in the morning. It seems to remain daytime there.

Correction: The phone calls are made at different times from each other so judging the time zone differences is tricky. However it is possible for the scenes to have daylight in both regions and daylight/night as in the show. If you use New York as reference point, a phone call at 4:30 pm, the call would be receieved at 6:30 am in Australia when it is plenty of time to have sunlight. When the Australian father calls it would be the afternoon and early morning in Springfield. If a call at 4:30 pm from Austrlia, it would be 2:30 am in New York.
