Went out with a bang...
A tough old cowboy with grizzled hair, chiseled featured, and hands tougher than the sharpest barbs on new wire told his grandson that the secret to living a long life was to sprinkle a pinch of gun powder on his oatmeal every morning.
With absolute faith, the grandson did as Grandpap instructed. Every morning for the rest of his life, he added a pinch of gun powder to his oatmeal.
He grew up, lived happily, enjoyed perfect health, and died at the ripe old age of 107.
According to the story in the newspaper, he left behind 14 children, 30 grandchildren, 45 great-grandchildren, 25 great-great-grandchildren, and a 15-foot crater where the crematorium used to be.

As every fan of the show knows, Leonard was smitten with Penny from the very first moment he met her. From there, the relationship between the two was a Ross and Rachel-esque roller-coaster that eventually culminated in their marriage and the revelation (in the very last episode) that they are expecting.
Before that, of course, Leonard had hulking ex-boyfriends of Penny’s to be envious of. One of these men was Kurt, who the gang meet at Penny’s Halloween party in “The Middle-Earth Paradigm.” Completely intimidated by the man at first, Leonard makes a clever-yet-understandable science joke about his size (behind his back, of course).
