I took it more along the lines of there is nothing Sheldon believe he cannot do. The man probably thinks that, given enough time, he would figure out a way for the man to become pregnant. Sheldon believes that he would of course be able to drive - after all, there are many who are less intelligent than him who are able to drive - he just chooses not to learn.

Still kind of waiting for this season to "get going..." A wee bit tired of Penny's issues and do hope she evolves somewhat. Even Sheldon seems to be evolving. My favorite episode is the Benefactor Factor, where Leonard takes one for the team for the sake of science and has an affair with Mrs. Latham! Hilarious! "There are a lot more rich old ladies out there, and Daddy needs a new linear accelerator."

In Sheldon's mind he can. Well actually he can he has a driver's permit. He needs another full driver in the car. He did drive Penny to the hospital the time she dislocated her shoulder in the shower due to a lack of ducks with umbrellas. lol

He also received a ticket for said driving adventure!

Given his facial expressions, I took that to mean he was lying. Though the interpretation that he simply believes he can but chooses not to learn is equally plausible.

I thought it was whimsical ducks with umbrellas. They are whimsical because ducks have neither the need for, nor the ability to hold umbrellas.

This is my problem, I always miss those little teeny details that totally are the Sheldonisms of the show.

He got a license in the first episode because he drove the instructor crazy, but he never learned how to drive. In the second, he's being Sheldon, and putting the best light on his situation. It's more a self deception than a lie.
