    . . . you win a free trip to Vegas and the rules say you have to travel with someone.

    Here is your only list of options:

    The Cooler
    Cousin Eddie
    Sheldon Cooper
    Debbie Downer

    Who's coming with you?!! :cry:

    Ok, I'll play...

    I'm taking Cousin Eddie, though Sheldon is a close second.

    Here's why...

    We know with The Cooler we are just going to lose tons of cash. Yes, we have all had those kind of trips before, but The Cooler never seemed to be a very happy or fun guy to play with, even if not gambling. So he's out.

    Debbie Downer? Who needs that? The point of vacation is to relax and have fun. Unless you can take joy at other people's complaining (some folks do!), I wouldn't hang around Debbie. I don't spend much time with people like that on a daily basis, so why hang with them on vacation.

    Sheldon... hmm... Socially inept doesn't bother me much, I often don't like other people either. I'm an engineer, so clearly not the Theoretical Physicist our friend Shelly is, but math based nonetheless. Sheldon should be able to calculate probabilities fairly well, hopefully along the lines of how many 10s left in the deck, when to double, take insurance, etc. Maybe even calculating positive EV for progressive based slot machines. Might have some fairly interesting discussions on the power grid and its consumption in Vegas, the light at the Luxor, etc. So not a bad #2 choice...

    Cousin Eddie, no problem. Man likes to drink, probably doesn't have much coin, but if I know that going into it I can plan to cover. Wouldn't plan dinner at too high end of a place, stick to buffets (gimme some of the yellah). Problem with Eddie is even his mother told him he was bad luck, but "I guess if your body's covered in third degree burns, and your foot's caught in a bear trap, you tend to start talkin' crazy". Still, I'd take Eddie!

    I would go with Sheldon Cooper in a second! With his OCD and overly-logical thinking. :faint: He would have me rolling on the floor laughing all the time!!!

    Cousin Eddie wins easily. However, if I were allowed to do some slightly un-ethical and probably illegal things, I could make all the contestants behave themselves just fine.

    Sheldon easily. I understand where he's coming from, and he probably wouldn't stop me from doing something risky, rather just explaining it afterwards.
    I'd actually bring the cooler second, i'll bet dark side if i have to, see how it goes. I think he'd be interesting, but i always thought William H Macy would be cool to talk to, even as this sad character.
    Cousin Eddie would be 3rd. i think my first trip would be fun, but my tastes have evolved in a lot of areas, making him a highly annoying person to travel with. I can't do as many buffets as I used to.

    The Cooler - No idea who this is.
    Cousin Eddie - Vegas Vacation right?
    Sheldon Cooper - No idea who this is.
    Debbie Downer - SNL right?

    I'd stay home... Thanks but no thanks.

    Half my staff IS Sheldon! Occasionally I'll take two or three of them with me, since I already know what I'm getting into it can be highly amusing.
    Sometimes the things they say could be part of the BBT scripts.

    Cousin Eddie in a heartbeat.

    I think he'd be fun to party with. I'd make him call me Clark and we'd drive around in his RV from Christmas Vacation.

    Cousin Eddie would be a riot to go to Vegas with! Hopefully he'd take me to that buffet where you can choose food by the color and the casino where you can bet on what number the dealer is thinking. That would be awesome as hell.

    Cousin Eddie would actually be fun.
    Hell, give him $20 for the penny slots and he would be very happy and it would probably last all night.

    Sheldon. No contest. I could find way of keeping him occupied so he didn't interfere with my fun, and some of the stuff he'd like I'd like as well.

    Cousin Eddie. White shoes, plaid pants, metal plate in his head... I'd buy him a drink every hour if he agreed to say "Merry Christmas, shitter was full."

    Cousin Eddie FTW.

    Take him downtown and he would be in paradise. Count his coins out of his money jar and El Cortez is his for the taking.

    The Cooler - Nope. No thank you. I want to win money, not donate money.

    Cousin Eddie - Well, he would be amusing to watch... maybe for 5 minutes then he'll probably drive you nuts. No thank you.

    Sheldon Cooper - This over analyst on everything and anything would make me want to push him in front of the bus.... No thank you.

    Debbie Downer - Okay. If I have to I'll go with her. When she whines, grumbles, and complains I'll just say "Fine, I'm going alone." Gonna work out great. I love going solo anyway. It's like she's never was there! Win!!
