Why doesn't Sheldon drive?

Did he miss out on the opportunity to learn when he was a Ph.D. student at age 16 or is it another reason?

Watch the "Euclid Alternative", season 2, episode 5. It's all explained there :)

To make things easier: I not sure but for what I understood I guess that driving it's the only thing that Sheldon suck at it (I mean, besides humam relations) xD In the end of the episode he says that he's too evolved to drive.

Spot on. Sheldon can never be wrong. His whole existence revolves around self belief. So he simply ignores anything which contradicts this. Or berates subjects he has no experience in, like Biology, Geology and sex.

I love the episode where Raj and Sheldon are working together. S3 E4 - The Pirate Solution. The argument is classic! When Raj blows a raspberry, I just die.

Maybe he should use the "scientific curiosity" and explore those domains too....:icon_lol:

Oh yeah that episode is hilarious. They just can't get along.

It's my favourite episode between Raj and Sheldon. He respects him, rather reluctantly and accepts Raj was right but won't admit he was wrong. A contradiction if ever there was one.

I don't think it will be science to lead Sheldon out of his repression. I have a theory he has an 'archives heel' of some sort.

well since he's always thinking and driving is react that wouldn't be a good mix and so that's why he doesn't, plus he is too evolved

LOL! urm, i dunno ... :shy:.

An innocent comment or touch. A weakness, like his ears or something that triggers the right moment. It would have to take him by surprise or he would think his way out of it. To be fair, I have no idea if they will even go there with Sheldon. But if they do I have a feeling it won't be ordinary.

You know what, I thought about this too. He MUST have some sort of weak point, he's only human. Maybe it's Penny :icon_cheesygrin:...the weak point i mean. There's incredible chemistry between these two, they'll make a great couple, much better than with Leonard.

They do have great chemistry but not sure what that has to do with him driving.

That's his weak spot together with the "not being able to drive" thing. Maybe some people just aren't meant to drive.
