...but here goes anyways.

In "The Strike" when Kramer shows his business card from 10 years ago. It says "Cosmo Kramer - Bagel Technician." But surely at this point, Kramer wouldn't have included his first name, would he?

Also, in "The Wizard," when Jerry and his parents are eating, Morty says he'll tip 12.4%, which, according to Jerry, results in a tip of $4.3666666666666666 [etc.]. Simple arithmetic reveals that there is no possible dollar total that would result in a 12.4% tip of $4.3666666666:

Total Tip
$35.20 $4.3648
$35.21 $4.36604
$35.22 $4.36728

Oops, here are a couple corrections of my own post:

In "The Strike" we don't see the card until Elaine looks at it.

In "The Wizard" the tip is actually $4.366666, according to Jerry.

Hey Paul, wondering why no replies?

Well, I thought that the lack of replies might be because this stuff is old news for you folks. However, I didn't notice these bits mentioned in the episode guide, so I thought I'd bring them up to see if anyone else had noticed them too. But is it possible that I committed some sort of forum faux pas?

Pardon my ignorance, but why wouldn't the K-Man include his first name on a business card from 10 years earlier? If the answer is blatently obvious, then I'm sorry - I just haven't ever seen seasons 5,6 or 7, and if the answer is in one of those seasons...

Don't think you committed a faux pas, per se. But you clearly did get your calculator out and used it to prove a point. Which may well be breaking new ground and folks may need some time to bed that one in...

I hadn't heard these before. There are just so many bloopers. People come up with these type of things in almost every episode. It's become sort of ho-hum to me. Cool
