Girls Just Want to Have Sums - S17-E19

Corrected entry: When Lisa crosses over to the boys side of the school, she looks in the window of the math class where the teacher asks the class the volume of a three circled snowman with a carrot nose. Lisa corrects Martin's answer by saying, "He forgot the volume of the carrot nose. One-third base times height!" This is incorrect, the volume of a cone (the shape of a carrot) is one-third pi radius squared times height. Or if she was going for the area instead, that is one-half the base time height. Lisa always prides herself on being incredibly smart, so she should not have made this mistake, especially when she was so confident.

Correction: Hence why she's still in school. because she *doesn't* know everything. Not a mistake, just a child's cocky confidence.

Tree House of Horror V - S6-E6

Question: Homer travels back in time and causes changes by what he does in the past, like stepping on a bug. I once saw a movie with the same basic plot: some people travel back in time and are told to be careful not to disturb anything, but when they return to their time everything has changed. In the end they discover it was because they stepped on a butterfly. Does anyone know the name of this movie?

Answer: I'm not sure if this is the one you're thinking of, but an episode of "Ray Bradbury Theatre," called "A Sound of Thunder," dealt with a similar matter: a group of hunters travel back in time to hunt dinosaurs, only to find things have changed when they get back because someone stepped on a butterfly.
