things that make you go hmmm


Match book: Why is the striker on the back? The striker was on the front until 1973.

Cigarette pack: It appears to be sealed, but there is a butt in the ash tray.

Joe's gun: He left it at Karl's before going to the vault, yet he has it when he visits Eddie.

Foot Powder: Dr. Scholl's Bromidrosis brand 1970 vintage, 2oz. I thought the event happened in 1961

Excellent observations.

We have already discovered countless anachronisms, but the discontinuity of Joe’s gun has me stumped. I am surprised it has not come up before.

Do you have a source for the foot powder? If you do, I would like to add that to the catalogue.

We strongly suspect that there are at least two packs of cigarettes.

You have to realize that Wikipedia is always behind and usually dependent on our own forum. All the cutting edge research on objects comes from us.

I find this discussion page from Wikipedia interesting. It shows exactly how all resistance to us being the authority on objects subsided with the addition of information from Jess. January 2, 2009 is the day we went from being a fan forum to being TLR central.

exyooper, do you have a source for the exact date that the match strikers were moved to the back of matchbooks? I need it for the catalogue.

That is actually better than I had hoped for. I will get it into the catalogue some time tomorrow.

Re: things that make you go hmmm


Excellent, I added the information and footnotes for both.

If you come up with anything else, feel free to post it directly to the pertinent article. Be sure to immediately save and post your sources.
