Nit-picking

Is it possible to pay too much attention to detail? I think, when it comes to pop culture, the answer is yes. I don't normally watch the TV show "How I Met Your Mother," but the other night I happened to watch because "Antiques Roadshow" was pre-empted. The whole premise of this episode was based on the fact that Lilly would always bring her husband Marshall (and formerly boyfriend) a six pack of local micro-brew home for him when she returned from an airplane trip.  A six pack of beer, in bottles, that she CARRIED ON TO THE PLANE. I don't know if the airlines ever would have let you carry on your own six pack of beer. And certainly not in this post 9-11 world where all liquids must be two ounces or less! And the glass bottle, I'm thinking, could be used as a weapon. So I wasn't able to enjoy one minute of the show. I kept saying to myself "they don't let you carry 6 packs onto the plane." When Mike would walk into the room (he actually found other things to do rather than watch TV), I'd ask "don't you think they have some kind of fact checkers?  Don't you think they have writers who have ever flown on a plane???" I think he said something to me like "Who cares?" But he's the same way when it comes to guitars and other musical gear featured in movies. For example, "The Buddy Holly Story" is a great movie but the band is playing guitars that weren't even invented yet before Holly died. (Not to mention they left out an entire Cricket and Norman Petty.) I remember reading an article in Oprah's magazine where the author said she grew up drinking Diet Coke in the 1970's. I  don't think so. Maybe Tab, but not Diet Coke. I guess I should just try to notice those sorts of errors..and then let them go. If Oprah can't afford fact-checkers, who can?
