not really a Headscratcher... but. A question from Britain. The UsefulNotes/AmericanAccents page says there is such a thing as a distinct Pasadena accent. does that come out anywhere on this show? Thanks!

** Actually, he did some selfless things. He borrowed Penny money, drove Penny to the hospital, even saved Leonard's life once. In newer episodes, he comforted Howard after Emily had made fun of him and comforted him [*spoilers after his mother's death*]. Although the North Pole Incident was mostly his fault, the statement above is factually incorrect.

* In ''The Launch Acceleration'', Leonard demonstrates the potential of a gas used in lasers that has the opposite effect to helium if breathed in. Problem: sulphur hexafluoride weighs six times heavier than air (explaining why after Penny breathes it in she starts to talk like Barry White). When Leonard fills a balloon with the stuff and lets go, it should fall like a brick in normal air. Instead it is seen to zoom UP, as if it were helium.... the effect of gas under pressure leaving a balloon should not have done that in this case. also the gas is a suffocant and [[DoNotTryThisAtHome carries a warning that it should ''not'' be breathed in]]. (no such advisory on the show?) Maybe they played safe and used something else, dubbing the Barry White voices on in post-production?

** They are mentioned as watching anime in several episodes, as well as both Leonard and Howard as having animated porn which is likely anime as well. As for manga, some just don't like the genre. Of my own geek circle, quite a few are comic book fans but don't read manga, including myself.

*** Even Sheldon's enjoyment of correcting mistakes could probably be overridden by a strong dislike of Aquaman.
