    this episode gets SO MUCH darker when you realise that a LOT of the analysis of Norm also applies to Micheal Swaim. Was this the After Hours version of an intervention?

    So is anyone else realizing that the friends thing would imply somewhat insect since phibe? is given an egg which is fertilized by her brothers sperm, and she is giving birth to her brothers son?
    Also if that was just Cracked's theory and doesn't stand up truly, disregard what I just typed

    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!

    norms drinking is hardly excessive, including the other bar he apparently frequents and beers not counted on his tab he drinks maybe a 6 pack a night wich is *FAR* from excessive
    hell when I was Norm's age I drank close to 4 times that a night, and still got up and went to work the next day

    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.

    What I worry about most (well, not much, because, well, entertainment is low-down in my world-concerns), buI worry that this obvious advice is being ignored. 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).

    Oh man, Soren is me with math especially when you need to tip at a restaurant. I never know the exact amount to give. 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.

    Are you suggesting that leaving an emotionally abusive relationship, transferring for work and not carrying out wacky sitcom-esque hijinks with his son makes Fraiser a bad father? It's made very clear that he loves spending what time he can with him, and it's never suggested that the episodes are representaive of his normal life.
