The Junior Professor Solution - S8-E2

Character mistake: When Howard is asking Sheldon engineering questions, the first question is "How do you quantify the strength of materials?" Sheldon answers "Young's Modulus," and Howard admits that is correct. But it's not correct - Young's Modulus quantifies a material's elasticity, not strength. (00:17:10)

The Septum Deviation - S8-E9

Continuity mistake: In this episode Leonard has a snoring problem (a result of a deviated septum, which in all probability he was born with, plus Amy says Sheldon has always complained about Leonard's snoring, and Sheldon says after 5 or 6 years he's gotten use to Leonard's snoring), but in episode 14 of season 3 when Sheldon brings up snoring Penny says, "Leonard doesn't snore." And in episode 8 of season 6, Sheldon lists not snoring as one of Leonard's positive traits.

The Troll Manifestation - S8-E14

Continuity mistake: When the gang and Stephen Hawking are video chatting, the Android mascot is lying down when the camera is facing the gang, but when the camera is facing Stephen Hawking, the Android mascot is standing up.

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."
