The Romance Resonance - S7-E6

Corrected entry: When Sheldon realises his mistake in reading sq centimeters as sq meters he says "I am off by a factor of 10,000" when in actuality such a mistake would be by a factor of 100.

Correction: No, he's right - 2cm x 2cm (for example) would be 4 sq cm. 2m x 2m (200cm x 200cm) would be 40,000 sq cm - off by a factor of 10,000.

The Raiders Minimization - S7-E4

Corrected entry: When Leonard and Penny are doing the 'business' at the university and Howard knocks on the door, Leonard opens and says "hey Si" (Howard's real name - Simon Helberg).

Correction: He says "Hey, sorry," while panting - he's apologising for taking so long to answer the door.

The Hesitation Ramification - S7-E12

Corrected entry: When Sheldon comes to tell Leonard and Penny his perfect joke he is wearing a plain green T-shirt, but when Penny leaves and he begins to tell Leanord about it, his shirt now has a black symbol on it.

Correction: The symbol is there the entire time. It's just very difficult to see.

The Thanksgiving Decoupling - S7-E9

Corrected entry: Penny states that she did not know that a Vegas wedding is an actual wedding, however in season 5 episode 24, The Countdown Reflection, she states that she knew tons of people who got married in Vegas. (00:02:55 - 00:03:40)

Correction: Just because she knows people who got married in Vegas doesn't mean she didn't know the weddings were real.

The Locomotive Manipulation - S7-E15

Corrected entry: Sheldon asks whether the train carriage has "link-and-pin" type couplers, when he would know that such couplers were outlawed by the Safety Appliance Act of 1893.

Correction: It would easy for Sheldon to ignore this fact when he is aboard a train that has been restored to its original design; internally and externally. He has been building toy models since he was a kid. He just wanted to know to what level this train has been restored.

The Countdown Reflection - S5-E24

Factual error: There is not a snowball's chance of Howard becoming an astronaut. He suffers from cardiac arrhythmia, something about which he is completely open. "Transient" or not this is easily detectable by a simple electrocardiogram, which is a fundamental part of the many medical examinations a potential astronaut will have to pass. He wouldn't even be allowed to start basic training. Note also that during his basic training he shows signs of severe stress and trauma which would inevitably trigger a cardiac episode. Even if it didn't the fact that he was falling apart at the seams would have him removed from the programme for his own good.

Stephen Hawking: Do you like brain teasers?
