Re: The Big Bang Theory
As a TV character, Sheldon is funny as hell, but in real life he would be EXTREMELY annoying trying to deal with. I could not work, live with, or hang out with Sheldon for any length of time without wanting to throttle him. And I daresay most people would have that same problem..
That's why Howard was making a crossbow while they were at the North Pole.
I really think that they tolerate Sheldon more for Leonard's sake. I'd love to hang with Leonard, Howard, and Raj. Sheldon? Not so much.
