The Name Made Me Do It!

There's a funny anecdote coming from Tuesday night's game between the Rangers and the Yankees.
A nutty fan tried to attack Alex Rodriguez because of some to-do with Cameron Diaz. This story alone is pretty funny. But it gets better: the dude's name is Grim LeRogue*.
I mean, either his parents wanted to make sure he was a bratty troublemaker, or it's the name he assumed to perform evil.

*And, to complete the Harry Potter trifecta: Rogue is the French translation for Snape.

Walt Disney and You

I know that I've posted this before, but I simply think it's something that we should watch often to reconnect with our childhood.

Proving your point with the title

So I saw this paper recently. This is the title, I kid you not: Cannibis in the life's of many
I mean, talk about proving cannibis' negative effects in one fell swoop.

So far my favorite sentence is "In the end I chose an article that is looking for the effects that cannabis has in the body and mind."

I think I liked it so much because it reminded me of Star Trek 6 when Uhura and the crew are frantically trying to tell some Klingons over the comm that they're going to Rura Penthe and that they're really a Klingon ship from the home world. They totally botch the language, just like the paper title and the sentence copied above.

So, to translate what's in the video clip:
In Klingon we hear (What ship is that? Over...)
Uhura finally responds in Klingon with a stuttering: (We art thy freighter... URSVA six...weeks out of Kronos... Over...)
Then they hear: (Whither are you bound? Over...)
Finally they respond with: (We art delivering food... things ... to Rura Penthe... over...)

I think I like most things that remind me of Star Trek.
And who knew Klingon was so Shakespearean? I mean, "Whiter are you bound"?? Chancellor Gorkon knew, that's who. And doesn't Gorkon sound just like the Master Control Program from Tron? Well, he should.

Thought I'd share

There's been a whole lotta hullabaloo after conference, which I'm sure you all know about. I've got some strong opinions on some of the issues. Maybe I'll post about those later. I dunno yet.

But there is one thing that I'd like to share. You may have seen it posted already on facebook, but just in case you hadn't, here you go.

To solidify the notion, I present:

Welcome to the shirt that I just got from woot. If you couldn't stand as a witness of my nerdiness before...
Oh, how I love it and all it's uber nerdiness.
I mean, we've got FrankenVader, Ackbar's trap, Riker's resignation to Troi getting drunk, and a triumphant Picard sticking it to his torturer.
Hello, Halloween.

I should probably blog about _______, yet I post about ________

Hi. If you didn't hear my cousin, Brock, and me shouting with reckless abandon about the announcement of the temple for Lisbon, Portugal, I'm surprised. Yay! for temple announcements at conference.
There were some great, memorable moments this Conference Saturday ("You may wonder what this has to do with flying an airplane"). I'm excited to find out what Priesthood Session was about.

So, maybe it's weird to end the post with this particular video, but I've been looking for it for a while. According to this video, Jack Daniels is the long lost twin brother of Vladimir Lenin. So creepy.
