True, in Arizona I've seen both folks in scarves and boots in the mid 70's (Phoenix), and shorts in blizzard conditions (Flagstaff).
I have not seen anyone who wears four layers of clothing every day, year round.

They're not wearing four layers. They might wear two at the most.

When my mom and I went to stay with her friend in Lompoc, which is in Central California, the temperature dipped into the low to mid-50s every night we were there. Mom's friend complained it was cold, but we were quite comfortable wearing just jeans and t-shirts, even during the day when the highs only got up into the mid to upper-60s.

I honestly thought it was more of an exaggeration myself, but
Spoiler:
Sheldon usually has a t-shirt over a long sleeved shirt, and occasionally puts on a jacket to go outside, that's 3.
There's some weird running gag with Howard having just the collar of a turtle neck on under his button up shirt. I don't get it.

Leonard's usual look:

1. t-shirt
2. hoodie
3. outer jacket thing

Then Raj

four layers.


It's just a weird quirk of the show that my dad yells at the t.v. about.

I thought that was one of those double-lined jackets, that may be supplied with a hoodie. The inner layer is usually fitted with snap buttons to snap up, then the outer layer would be zippered up. I have a large coat in that fashion I usually wear when it's pissing cold outside. That's the kind of cold where when you first step outside, or within five minutes of going outside, you feel like you have to piss.

I've missed a few episodes this season, but I never noticed any sort of gag with that. The things that are just a collar (or turtleneck) and the front of a shirt are called "dickies." They were popular a few decades ago for the purpose of getting a layered look without the bulk. Since Howard's clothing seems like it comes from a few decades ago, the dickie could just be part of his style.

I thought that too, but then I realized the hoodie actually changes colors/design, so it must be a seperate jacket and hoodie.

Someone please tell me that what Sheldon is saying here isn't supposed to make sense. Sure, it's funny, but I'm sick of everyone acting like what he said was a valid argument or smth. I don't actually watch the show but I keep seeing that pic everywhere.

It makes sense if you accept that Sheldon is too socially stumped to hear the implicit "and that makes me sad" after "Because I'm stupid". I don't know much about Asperger's Syndrome, or whatever Sheldon is supposed to have, but I find it hard to believe that someone whose job it is to piece together theories is unable to make that leap.

It's just horrible writing.

It's not that he's unable to make the leap - it's that he doesn't care enough to do so.

It's also coherent with his assumptions of superiority. He tends to not look for depth in other people's words much, especially those he sees as unintelligent. As a generic human trait, it's pretty common...it's just dialed up to 11 for humor in Sheldon's case.

This is more it I think. If she had answered "because I'm sad" a response of "Oh ok" followed by nothing else would probably be expected. Its pretty common that he'll either accept a statement or make an argument as to why your statement is wrong even if its only a small technicality on why its wrong. Which is pretty consistent in this scene.

Sheldon Cooper's behavior is actually a perfect portrait of obsessive compulsive disorder but I don't care because he makes me piss my pants laughing.

So, apparently
Spoiler:
Sheldon might be going to Mars. Possibly Amy too. This would be an interesting way to end the series, I suppose...
