The Wheaton Recurrence - S3-E19

Factual error: Sheldon and the team are league bowling and have a match with Will Wheaton's team. They are bowling on lanes 2 and 3. In league bowling, you have to bowl on lanes that start with an odd number because the ball return is shared between those lanes. In league bowling, you take turns with each lane so that any differences in the lanes evens out, and this lane layout wouldn't allow that.

Sheldon's mind is distracted by the problem he is trying to solve. He grabs other people's food, he allows Raj to touch his food, he handles dirty cutlery at the cheesecake factory, All characteristics that would be present if he was acting normally. The fact that he is in the ball pit is simply an extension.

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.

It has become a rallying song among miners seeking improved working conditions."
