right, I’m ready for my next question.
Amy: In a
world where rhinoceroses are domesticated pets, who wins the Second World War?
Kenya rises to power on the export of rhinoceroses. A Central African power
block is formed, colonizing North Africa and Europe. When war breaks out, no
one can afford the luxury of a rhino. Kenya withers, Uganda triumphs.
Correct. My turn.
a world where a piano is a weapon, not a musical instrument, on what does Scott
Joplin play The Maple Leaf Rag?
You’re right. My apologies.
What the hell are you guys playing?
It’s a game we invented. It’s called Counterfactuals.
postulate an alternate world that differs from ours in one key aspect and then
pose questions to each other.
It’s fun for ages eight to eighty. Join us.
All right. I like a good brainteaser. Give it a whirl.
You’re in luck, this is an easy one. In a world where mankind is ruled by a
giant intelligent beaver, what food is no longer consumed?
Uh, a BLT where the B stands for beaver? I don’t know.
Leonard, be serious. We’re playing a game here.
can figure this out, let’s see. Um, well, beavers eat tree bark. The only tree
bark I know that humans consume is cinnamon. So, I’ll say cinnamon.
Incorrect. Obviously, the answer is cheese Danish.
Amy: In a
world ruled by a giant beaver, mankind builds many dams to please the beaver
overlord. The low-lying city of Copenhagen is flooded. Thousands die.
Devastated, the Danes never invent their namesake pastry. How does one miss
This is ridiculous. You’re just making stuff up.
Amy: Is he
always like this when he loses?
Oh, yes. You should’ve been here for the great Jenga tantrum of 2008.
You bumped the table and you know it.
Perhaps it would be kinder to play a game more suited to his abilities. We’ll
close our eyes and count to ten while you hide.
I’m going to my room.
Very good, Leonard. But next time, don’t tell us where you’re hiding.
So a few things I loved about this scene: 1. Pretty girlfriend. 2. His woman. 3. Moving his head to touch her hair? 4. Knows every erogenous part of Amy’s body and has them meticulously categorized. 5. I realize this is open to interpretation but… There’s no way Sheldon isn’t making these innuendos on purpose. He’s talking about her erogenous zones and acting way too flirty.
1. Sheldon referring to coitus as ‘making love’ for the first time. 2. Making sure Amy knew they weren’t having sex for the wrong reasons. 3. Being all adorable and shy as he talks about what they’re about to do. 4. Leading Amy on as they walk to their bedroom. YUP, I’m dead. Bye world.
