    There's a spoiler picture from the finale in this week's Entertainment Weekly (Dark Shadows cover):

    It was most definitely faked. I could hear some artifacts of the artificial pitch changes in their voices. Plus, it went from full on deep, to normal in less than a breath a couple of times. You could hear a normal laugh from Penny before she even had time to breath again at one point. Had it been real gas, her laugh would have at least been somewhat affected. She couldn't have evacuated her lungs and refilled them with normal air that quickly.

    That solves on question I had. I was wondering if Mayim only wears skirts for religious reasons-because that's all you ever see her wear. I would guess not.

    She looks nice in pants. :)

    She's Jewish, but she's a very modest one.

    Oakland,...
    Because sulfur hexafluoride is six times heavier than air, I agree that the scene must have been faked. The times I've seen it used, the person inhaling it had to bend over to get it all out of his lungs.

    After this episode, I wonder if we'll hear about a rash of geeks passing out from trying this stuff.

    Yeah. I would say she's maybe Conservative (?) Which I want to say is the middle, a little modest but not Orthodox.

    She really is a pretty woman. I don't think they even did her justice on What Not To Wear.

    Oh no, she's WAY into "orthodox" territory. Have you read her blog?

    not just passing out, I was thinking of people possibly dying..

    I would have thought they'd at least have them sit upside down and breathe a few times.. (With the stupid people suing over Beavis & Butthead's "fire fire fire", this seems almost as sue-worthy, as in I mean unworthy.)

    When the guy did it on Letterman, I'm pretty sure he actually hung upside down on a swing and breathed heavily for a while to get it all out.

    Depends on how easy it is to get ahold of the stuff.

    Some. Remember, I'm not the most educated person on the Jewish faith. :eek:

    Maybe there's a level beyond Orthodox? Hasidim?



    (Completely off-topic-I gave the soil to my niece today. They were DELIGHTED-I forgot to tell them Delaware was coming too. :D)

    from the net:

    In North America there are 4: Orthodox, Conservative, Reform, and Reconstructionist.
    In the UK there are 4: Orthodox, Masorti, Reform, and Liberal/Progressive.
    In Ireland there are 2: Orthodox and Progressive.
    In Israel there is 1: Orthodox (although other denominiations are now starting to gain acceptance1).

    There are then several varieties of Orthodox. Hasidism is a Polish version, brought to the US by Polish immigrants.
