***In that episode they state that Dee made them create the panic room for Y2K, because she was terrified of machines uprising, and then immediately raided it after it passed. If Mac was 28 in 2005, that'd make him 22 in 1999. Dennis and Dee never state what level degrees they were pursuing in college, only that Dee dropped out and was briefly institutionalized. It's possible that during a summer break from college in 1995-1998 that Dennis, Charlie, and Mac happened upon a run down bar, and got Dennis' parents to bankroll them owning it, since Frank was still Dennis' real dad at that point and his mother spoiled him. Frank could've twisted some arms to let them work underage until 1998, Charlie and Mac could've been running it while Dennis was away at school, and Dee would presumably be in the mix at that point.

** I don't know. But if I had to guess, it's probably due to RuleOfFunny, especially since it's kind of a SadistShow. Or he could have saw how Charlie treated everyone when he thought he was smarter than them and thought he needed to be taken down a peg. I mean, the dude did rag on him a bit for thinking he was suddenly too good for a woman he spent years pining for. It's debatable whether Charlie really deserved that (especially since he's the one who caused it), but it's possible.

** In "Wolf Cola: A Public Relations Nightmare," it appears that Frank has been producing soft drinks under his company Frank's Fluids, seemingly for a good profit. Of course, it requires a combination of less-than-upstanding buyers and people buying it for "alternative purposes."

** They're all dangerous people (Dee admitted to outright plotting to killing off Dennis and Frank for the inheritance money. Charlie seemingly might have murdered the "leprechaun" in "Charlie Catches A Leprechaun" if the gang hadn't stopped him. Frank carries a gun on him constantly and is reckless with it). They're also extremely ignorant, stubborn people who refuse to change their long-set ways, learn new things, or admit to their flaws. It seems like they're willing to let themselves kill each other than admit that any of them need help. They're also all severe alcoholics, drug-users, and people who just generally put themselves in bad positions (they do run a dive bar that they've described as the kind of place where people get stabbed). It doesn't seem like they put much thought into health or safety in any real way. They must know that all of these things they do are serious dangers to them but it's as the gang says in "The Gang Gets Quarantined" after they realize they'll have terrible withdrawals if they stop drinking:

* Did Bruce Mathis completely lose interest in his kids? As far as I know, they're only crime was not wanting to be in an air-conditioned room with a bunch of terminally ill kids that they had little or no instructions on as for how to help. Also how good could Bruce Mathis have been if he had sex with a married woman. I presume he might have known about it all this time if he independently messaged Sweet Dee anyway.

* Why hasn't Charlie been arrested? I mean I know he's supposed to be a downplayed TokenGoodTeammate who's not really good per-say, but the least immoral one in the group. But he's been stalking the waitress for a long time & she hates him for being so obsessed with her. Why doesn't she call the police or try to get a restraining order? I know it's probably hard to get a stalker arrested in certain situations. Though he obviously knows where she lives and makes no secret of the fact that he's stalking her and I'm pretty sure the lawyer (which they used to see) would love to help her out.
** In the episode the D.E.N.N.I.S. System, she begins to call the police when she finds Charlie in her apartment destroying her sink (or "fixing it" as he claims), citing numerous restraining orders against him. Unfortunately, he mentions Dennis, and she gets DistractedByTheSexy.
*** Totally forgot about that, thanks.
** Also throw in the waitress' behaviour during her frequent falls off the wagon.

* In "Flowers for Charlie" most of Charlie’s behavior can be explained as simple effects of the placebo. However he actually does some clever stuff: He quotes Shakespeare, he gives an informed opinion of Stephen Hawking’s role in the scientific community, he identifies Frank’s intentions and describes them in an eloquent way and he explains the etymology of placebo. How did he do that? Those are not exactly super genius level observations, but is definitely way beyond Charlie “I can’t actually read” Kelly’s capacities.
** Charlie has produced grammy-grade songs, manipulated a girl just to get The Waitress jealous, & got Paddy's a passing health inspection. He really is a genius...who just happens to be illiterate.

* Rickey Cricket can join the priesthood any time he wants, right? If he quits because he's in love with a girl and doesn't do anything about it or consumate that relationship, I'm pretty sure he's not in trouble. The priesthood even takes people who had sex before taking a vow of celibacy.

* In "The Gang Gives Back" why would the A.A. meeting not understand that Charlie doesn't want to admit that he's an alcoholic? It's clear that the court sends people with alcohol-related violations to the group so shouldn't the group be prepared to deal with people who have committed alcohol violations and aren't self-diagnosed alcoholics?
