I love Treehouse...but they must employ either absent-minded interns to type up the transcripts...or use some kind of program that automates the process, but then not proofread the results. I painstakingly use the transcripts as the basis for my study notes and, every time, I have to do a certain degree of corrections, spelling checks and, like in this case, hunt down why "Truth E" and "False E" is popping up everywhere.

I'm glad you asked...I had just Googled it myself. </rant>
