->'''Jake Tapper''': Judge Moore has also said that, uh, he doesn't think, uh, a Muslim member of Congress should be allowed to be in Congress. Why? Under what provision of the Constitution?\\
'''Ted Crockett''': Because you have to swear on the Bible, when you are before... [[AnecdotalFallacy I had to do it. I'm an elected official, three terms; I had to swear on a Bible.]] You have to swear on a Bible to be an elected official in the United States of America. He alleges that a Muslim cannot do that, ethically, swearing on the Bible.\\

->''One of the biggest and most central characters to any war story is the war itself. Real life historical wars often have numerous accounts written from many different perspectives. These varied records can make researching the setting easy, but they make even better drink coasters. It is far easier to skim a Wikipedia article before getting bored a third of the way through and instead watch Series/Mash. [[SarcasmMode Don't worry, I'm sure history nerds won't point out a story's historical inaccuracies]].''

->'''Doctor:''' ''Voyager'' wasn't a "warship"! We were explorers!\\
'''Quarren:''' Yes, I know. Trying to get home, to Mars.\\
'''Doctor:''' '''''EARTH!''''' You see, you couldn't even get ''that'' right!

->It gets rather childish at some points in the movie that I can pick apart these supposed '[[InformedAbility geniuses]]' with my high school science education. Take for instance when the astrophysicist hits the hull of the ship with a hammer and goes 'HA! Here is basic physics ladies and gentlemen! If this ship were so super strong then why does my hammer chip the paint. This proves something!' Um, no. [[ArtisticLicensePhysics Strength is not something that is always attributed to rigid inflexibility.]] It all depends on what you need the material to do. Many materials are incredibly pliable yet strong at the same time. Kevlar (for example) is strong to ballistic forces but not to others. You canít just lump in hard=good and hand me this crap as basic physics.

->'''Noah:''' (authoritative) Watch enough wrestling and you learn to recognize the setups: This'll be a powerslam...\\
'''Announcer:''' OH! What a bodyslam.\\
'''Noah:''' --'''''[[BigWhat WHAT!]]''''' ''That's'' not a bodyslam!\\
'''Announcer:''' Takes the punch! Kurt does a flying bodyslam...\\
'''Noah:''' Oh for christsake... That's a cross body block! Can we agree that a bodyslam involves, at minimum, ''picking up'' the other guy?\\
'''Announcer:''' Watch this flying body slam!\\
'''Noah:''' ''Cross body block!'' Is anything '''not''' a bodyslam in this game? ... I don't even know what a "powerslam" is anymore. But judging from the card it's the [[Wrestling/TedDiBiase "Million Dollar Man" Ted DiBiase]] throwing-- a CROSS BODY BLOCK! YOU '''NAMED THE GAME AFTER IT!!'''

->... Creator/HGWells is separated from almost all actual representation of his history. The list of historical howlers about Wells is huge -- his accent is wrong, his hair color is wrong, he goes by Herbert instead of George, heís inexplicably well off, he appears to believe in God... Indeed, about the only meaningful trait Herbert displays in terms of him being HG Wells is that heíll supposedly [[IShouldWriteABookAboutThis write several books based on these experiences.]] But, of course, the plots of his books donít really resemble Timelash either.

->What might have been a trenchant idea, that copyright law is outdated and does nothing but leash creativity, is undermined by Matt Yglesias [[UnwantedAssistance and his poo-filled head]]. His argument is based around the author who took over writing James Bond novels complaining that he has to please too many people, including Creator/IanFleming's estate, and it makes writing a James Bond book hard. Yglesias then points to Franchise/SherlockHolmes, a character no longer under copyright, and all the wonderful Sherlock Holmes stories not written by Arthur Conan Doyle. Because the ultimate creativity is writing fan fiction that never matches or surpasses the original work, and we need to get rid of copyright law [[ChewbaccaDefense so we can have more fan fiction]]. Thanks, bro. Really thought about that one.

->First off, we get some hooey about {{the Roaring Twenties}} being great for poor people (in reality, income inequality drastically increased) and how [[TheGreatDepression the 1929 crash]] was not really caused by speculation. Yes, the stupidity starts this early.

->In a way the Texas Board of Education is the very symbol of American lunacy... Leo is perhaps particularly famous for getting the childrenís book ''Brown Bear, Brown Bear, What Do You See?'' by Bill Martin expunged from the elementary school curriculum because a Google search revealed that Bill Martin had also written [[RedScare a book on Marxism]] -- never mind that this was a completely different Bill Martin.
