    Chandler multiple times manipulates girls, pretends to be someone else (Remember his Bob impression?) so that he can pity fuck girls. And never actually tells them. Also, Rachel totally gangs up on her ex-husband with her BFF, ignoring the fact that THEY BOTH HAD SEX WITH EACH OTHERS HUSBAND. SHE DID IT TWICE. You just as bad as he is!

    Ron Harry and Hermione's Relationship VS Hermione and Harry's Relationship. Although Ron sucks a LOT, I think JK rowling was wrong, they are meant together. (Yes, she regrets that. Then who would Ron and Ginny date? Each other?)

    Book 1: Ron mercilessly bullies Hermione because she decides to help him with schoolwork, continuing to do it in her earshot on purpose. Dumbledore ships Harry and Hermione.
    Book 2: Ron tries to impress the others by, for no reason, riding on the horse so that he can "sacrifice himself," although theres no reason he would have to do this. Hermione basically proffesses her love for the kid she met that year, and how brave and kind he is.
    Book 3: Ron does jack-shit.
    Book 4: Ron acts like a total ass and tries to guilt trip Hermione for not choosing him, bringing her to tears. She later hugs Harry, and Reeter Skeeter ships them AF. He also states to Hermione that he will have the "prettiest girl that will have him" therefore giving him absolutely zilch reason to be jealous. And no support for SPEW, although Harry doesn't help a lot either.
    Book 5: Won Won and Lavender get friskier than Hermione and Ron in the entire series. Hermione sends a bunch of birds on Ron, after she decides she likes him for some reason. Hermione wants to barf at the fact that Won Won and Lavender love each other
    Book 6: Ron sort-of murmers Hermione's name in the hospital wing, thus ending his relationship with Lavender, Hermione casts a spell so Ron becomes seeker (cheater) Ron secretly compliments Hermy's skin. Hermione wants to ask Ron out.
    Book 7: Ron abandons his girlfriend/best friend. You can argue that he was under the horcrux, but nobody else was that much of an ass. Hermione and Harry get romantic and waltz, and Ron is super jealous, the hipocrite. Ron's big moment was him deciding to not betray his friends because of a giant hallucination in the sky. Hermione and Ron get together after he shows at least a little bit of compassion to a house elf. Also, when Ron came back, Hermione was pissed AF. Regardless, she calls ron brilliant twice. Kisses, giggles, hand holds, and children.

    Pheobe decides to donate to an Orphan Charity, then takes the money back. She tries to give it back again, but the charity doesnt take it.

    *The worst thing about this is that the charity has so much pride they can't accept a donation, regardless of who it's from, for the sake of the kids.*

    Ummm basketball season starts in October. Those tickets weren’t given to Joey and Chandler at the END of the season but the BEGINNING. And if Phoebe got pregnant in January/February and she gave birth in November (one month and two weeks after The One with all the Haste) that is a full pregnancy cycle. Sooooo not to brag, but I just bunked you guys 😝

    for those who don't know, on his own channel, Michael has said that the cracked videos where he has a beard were during the worst of his struggle with alcoholism. So naturally i had to come back to the episode where they talk about Norm's drinking. Michael's face at 6:16, as DOB says "Why isnt anyone helping Norm!" looks way too sincere

    Well the one with friends is because Lisa was actually pregnant with her own child so they wrote it into the show. Thinking about it doesn't ruin the show it makes it even better. When everyone went to London she actually couldn't because she was actually pregnant. It makes the show even cuter.

    No you can't ruin friends .... even if so ....wouldn't she look pregnant when he asked her ? 5 month pregnant would show a belly and she was straight up flat and also they wouldn't have been the procedure if she was pregnant they can't stick up so many infant and they are doctors so probably they would check .... however she was the strangest out of all of them so many she did travel through time which allowed her to do that

    _Head of the Class_ ran 5 years. According to the producers it was 4 years of school, with the final two seasons being 1st semeter & 2nd semester respectively. But that doesn't add up because (a) both seasons had Christmas episodes and (b) the students even in the very first episode had obviously been at that school, in that class, for a while. Even taking into account that people who play teens on TV are rarely teens themselves, they look way too old to be freshmen. More likely they were juniors.

    To everyone talking about the beers, remember what they said: He's drinking at more than one bar. The 486 beers are the ones we know from Cheers in 2 years. Then we know he drinks from at least one more bar. So yes, 243 beers from one bar is less than one a night, but we see him drinking 2-4 per episode, and we know he goes to at least 1 other bar, not unreasonable to think he's going to at least 2 more, so he could be drinking himself into a stupor every night of the year with thousands of 1980's dollars in debt. That's tens of thousands of dollars in today's money.

    I didn’t like any of those series. “Friends” was one I thought was exceptionally dumb, and unfunny. But I realize the shows I did like and watch are also vulnerable to math attacks. M*A*S*H was supposed to be set during the Korean war, which lasted from 1950 to 1953. Yet the TV series ran for nearly 11 years, from 1972 to 1983. The odd fact that it was taking 11 years for 3 years to pass was never mentioned in the show.

    Hi, I'm over a year late but I wanted to say that they should've researched the Frasier dog because they were completely wrong.
    Moose, the original Eddie, lived until 2006. One of his pups, Enzo, did his stunts in later years died in 2010. Both made it past the end of the show. You might as well use John Mahoney's death to ruin the show. It's very possible they used other dogs that aren't publicized as much that died, but either way they got the facts wrong, which is annoying in a show that's supposed to be about fact-checking essentially. Still fun tho!

    but if norm drank every day thats 365 over a period of years. so........then he drinks more than one beer a night at Cheers, don't forget the playoffs where he snagged four beers and sought another when the game came on and Sam ran out of beers to pass down the shuffle line. Hi. This might work with people way young, like yall, but not us who actually watched the show. And she's wrong too. Let us not forget the many mentions of Frasier going to Boston and obviously he would see Freddy when he did so. Also, the length of the visits, not to mention the phone calls we never heard about.

I'm not one to blame capitalism as it has lifted millions out of poverty rather than killing millions like communism, but clearly there are market failures, and it needs some nudging.

    How I Met Your Mother: In season 4 episode 22, Barney supposedly sleeps with his 200th woman. Throughout the episode characters constantly say that 200 is too many but 200 is actually too low of a number.
    Barney is 32 in this episode and we know he lost his virginity when he was 23.He meets Ted when he is 25, and he is already living this lifestyle at that time. If we only look at the time he has known Ted, we are looking at 7 years of sexual activity.
    Based on his character's behavior up to this point in the show, he is likely sleeping with more than one new woman each week, but let's pretend it's just one in a week. If it's one a week, then it would take less than 4 years to reach 200 women (as there are 52 weeks in a year).
    If we look at it the other way, (supposing that 200 women is correct, still only considering the 7 years he has know Ted) then Barney has slept with 28 or 29 new women each year (28.57 women, rounded to whole numbers, as he can’t sleep with .57 of a woman). This comes out to approximately one new woman just shy of every two weeks (12.74 days, rounded to the nearest whole day is 13 days).

One time I went to a restaurant with friends and we all decided to go halves on the tip. They all had the money they were gonna give the waitress. Meanwhile my bad at math struggling self was going into a black hole. One of my friends had to help me with how much I needed to put on the table. To this day, I still don’t understand math. Including college math that shit is so complex.
