Facts About Colm Meaney!

Because the people (well, OK, Mr. Laser Beam) demanded it! Because the fake facts about Colm Meaney in my Make up a fake bit of Trek trivia! thread, seemed to take off, I thought I'd start a new thread for them. I'll start:

FACT: Colm Meaney once beat up Captain Robau.

Colm Meaney once beat up John Sheppard.

Colm Meaney's drinking buddy is Rory Williams-Pond.

Colm Meaney can wear a red shirt and survive. Just watch Encounter at Farpoint and All Good Things.

Colm Meaney can insert hyperlinks into a post while sleeping.

Or at least he could, if he ever slept.

Copy the URL to which you want to link. Then, when you write the message, select the words you want to be the link by rolling over them with the mouse while holding the button. Then just above the text box, click on the icon that has a picture of a world with a chain link (or paper clip?). A message box will pop up asking you to enter the URL of the link. Paste the URL and click OK.

I hope I explained that clearly.
