The Tangerine Factor - S1-E17

Continuity mistake: When Penny is squirting chocolate syrup in the ice cream container, she drizzles some on the lip of the carton, causing it to run down the outside. The camera switches to Leonard and then back to Penny, at which point, the chocolate is gone. (00:04:50)

The Grasshopper Experiment - S1-E8

Continuity mistake: When Raj's parents tell him to put his laptop down and gather his friends, they all huddle around the one-seat sofa. Sheldon is crouched to the left of the seat with his hands on the sidearm, yet in shots angled at the left he has disappeared from his place (as to not obstruct these particular angled shots.) (00:02:00)

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.

Chosen answer: The song is called "Dark as a Dungeon" and was written and first performed by singer-songwriter Merle Travis in 1946. It has been performed by a wide array of artists, including Tennessee Ernie Ford, Harry Belafonte, Dolly Parton, Queens of the Stone Age, Kathy Mattea and Amy Grant. But it was made most famous when it was performed and recorded by Johnny Cash during his concert at Folsom Prison in 1968. According to Wikipedia: "It is a lament about the danger and drudgery of being a coal miner in an Appalachian shaft mine. It has become a rallying song among miners seeking improved working conditions."
