The Robotic Manipulation - S4-E1

Character mistake: While driving towards the restaurant, Amy mentions she uses dandruff shampoo for her "dry" scalp. Dandruff and dry scalp have the same main symptoms, which are falling flakes and an itchy scalp, but they are two different conditions. In dry scalp, the skin gets irritated and flakes off. With dandruff, the cause is too much oil on the scalp. That excess oil causes skin cells to build up and then shed. Therefore dandruff shampoo should be used for an oily scalp, not a dry scalp.

Suggested correction: Except there are dandruff shampoos that specifically treat dry scalp. In addition, dry scalp is commonly caused by dandruff.

Stephen Hawking: Do you like brain teasers?

Stephen Hawking: What do Sheldon Cooper and a black hole have in common? They both suck. Neener, neener.

The Euclid Alternative - S2-E5

Question: Though it comes up in other episodes as well, this one is focused on Sheldon needing a ride everywhere he goes because he can't drive, not to mention his not being welcome on the bus. Of course, this story element would be nonexistent if there was a simple answer, but it does beg the question: Does Pasadena not have taxicabs?

MFWills

Chosen answer: It does. The variable cleanliness of the cab and the habit of taxi drivers to engage customers in small talk would be too much for Sheldon to handle, and not an option for him.

Captain Defenestrator

Answer: Sheldon DID finally use a taxi when going to the airport to see and propose to Amy in New Jersey.
