Corrected entry: At the end of the episode, Sheldon runs off to Texas. That would be impossible in the short time frame the episode was set in. Especially since they live in Pasadena, California. California is 18 hours away by car from Texas. It has also been stated previously that Sheldon dislikes cars and airplanes a lot.
Corrected entry: In the discussion between Raj and Howard about "shiksa goddess" plus Sheldon's later mispronunciation of the word and Howard's correction, it is never clarified that the term applies only to a Gentile girlfriend of a Jewish man. No other relationship qualifies.MFWills
Corrected entry: Sheldon claims the X-Men were named so after the X in Charles Xavier's' name. In The X-Men #1 (1963), Professor X states that mutants possess an extra power that humans do not have. Xavier then says "That is why I call my students... X-Men, for EX-tra power!"
Corrected entry: In the scene where Sheldon lists the things that were stolen from the apartment, he mentions several gaming platforms including PlayStation 2 and PlayStation 3. Other than that he lists games including Final Fantasy 1 to 9. You can't play those Final Fantasy games on any of the gaming platforms he lists though (Only some HD remakes are available for the PlayStation 3, but only as downloads, so you won't be able to steal the discs because they don't exist).

Corrected entry: Sheldon refers to the "Hillbilly Peace Prize" in connection with Penny. Sheldon would have corrected anyone else who said such a thing. He would point out that that word "hillbilly" refers to people who dwell in rural, mountainous areas in the US primarily in Appalachia, the Ozarks, and other less well-known mountain chains. Nebraska, where Penny is from, is rural, but being a Great Plains state, has no connection at all to the term, not to mention a lack of mountains.MFWills
Corrected entry: The "Hollermus" that Sheldon allegedly makes is not actually a Swiss breakfast dish. It is in fact simply a kind of jam made from elderberries which is quite common in most German-speaking countries. Also, judging by the ingredients on the table (eggs, milk, butter) and the food on the plate, the dish prepared by Sheldon seems most likely to be an omelette with a Vienna sausage, which is in no way traditionally Swiss.Tanngrisnir
Corrected entry: Professor Crawley states he discovered a new species of dung beetle (named after him) in a rain forest in Borneo. That is impossible - dung beetles do not live in damp climates as the fecal matter upon which they live degrades too quickly when moist. You can find dung beetles in Savannah grassland, semi-arid desert, some lightly wooded areas, but a rain forest? Never.
Corrected entry: When Sheldon tells Leonard about the time travel clause, he states "in precisely five seconds." Anybody who knows anything about time travel know that you need a definitive point in time, so without having that exact date and time written down somewhere, there's no way a future version of them could arrive at that unspecified time. Sheldon's too anal to ignore something like that.Knever
Corrected entry: When Penny and Sheldon get into the car to drive to the hospital, she makes the remark, "You do have a learner's permit, right?" He answers yes and explains he has logged several simulation hours which ended badly. She already knows he has a learner's permit and about the simulations, since in season 2, "The Euclid Alternative," she was with him at the DMV when he got the permit and stood beside him during the simulation, actually hitting him in the face with a pillow to mimic an airbag when he crashed.lizbeth1fl
Corrected entry: Wil Wheaton tells Sheldon that he missed the convention because his grandmother died. When Wheaton later refers to a living grandmother, Sheldon realizes he has been tricked. He shouldn't - presumably Wheaton, like everyone else, has two grandmothers (mother's and father's side) and thus Wheaton announcing he has a living grandmother in no way contradicts what he said before. This alone shouldn't tip Sheldon off that Wheaton was lying.Moose
Corrected entry: Penny got a red light camera ticket while Sheldon was driving her car. She says she gave up Sheldon as the driver to the court because she didn't want to get any more points on her license. You don't get points on your license for a camera issued violation. The registered owner just gets a straight fine. A police officer has to issue a ticket at the scene to get license points.terry s
Corrected entry: Kripke pumps helium into Sheldon's office to make his voice squeaky while conducting a phone interview. However, the helium is pumped in via a tube that is above the height of Sheldon's head, and helium floats in air; therefore, the helium would have accumulated near the ceiling and would not have affected Sheldon within a couple of minutes as shown.DavidK93
