Sheldon realizes he won’t live long enough to download his consciousness into a robot body, and attempts to extend his lifespan. His first attempts involve eating Brussels sprouts instead of pizza and starting to jog. Each of these efforts fails, so he instead starts to use a robotic "virtual presence device" to hang out with the rest of the gang, go to work, go to restaurants, and so on. The episode ends without his dilemma being resolved.

Notes and Trivia
Still to come
This episode most likely starts on a Thursday morning. Towards the end we see the guys in the Cheesecake Factory, where they usually go on Tuesdays (see Schedule). The final scene either plays on the same night or the following day.
Cruciferous vegetables include cabbage, broccoli, brussels sprouts, horseradish, radishes, and cauliflower. The name comes from the shape of the flower, (Cruciferae, New Latin for "cross-bearing"), whose four petals resemble a cross. Cruciferous vegetables tend to cause gas and therefore flatulence, as Sheldon found out the hard way.
