    From Redditor throw_havingdoubts:

    Penny deserved credit for the comet. Raj thought it was an eyelash. Without her drawing it to his attention he wouldn’t have encouraged her to take a picture and the comet would’ve gone undetected/discovered.

    From a former Redditor:

    He's an engineer, not a scientist, which means he builds things instead of finding out why things happen. It's a totally different skill set that his scientist friends can't relate to. Also, while most scientists have PhDs, most engineers have MSs.

    From Redditor u/misscopypasta:

    Just realized Sheldon has seen the whole main cast naked except Bernadette. How crazy is that? In addition to being married to Amy, Sheldon had seen the guys naked at the North Pole when they slept together to stay warm. He saw Penny naked when she had an accident in the shower.

    From Redditor u/mack12356:

    In season 3, episode 9, Barry pranked Sheldon with helium which should of killed Sheldon. But the way Sheldon got revenge was worse, he used elephant toothpaste which when it's a small amount its just really warm but that amount would cause burns or death.
