So I bought a safe.

Turns out it doesnt fit the requirements to be a true safe, when I found this out I turned to it and said:

"You think you're 'A' safe, you are not!"

Then I went to the shop that I bought it from and said:

"I have returned, to have my vengence!".

If you had been true to Gene's vision this would not have happened.
Enjoy these final moments of peace before the lock.

And you hurled the safe through a window and the safe and a thousand shards of grass cascaded to the streetscape hundreds of feet below.

Your salesmen have committed a crime I cannot forgive.

Is there a JJ-Trek facepalm?

I put your safe on this table:

You can't see it because... it is an illusion. A comforting lie told to protect you.

Re: So I bought a safe.

Presumably this safe is to be used to store your recordings of oldTrek episodes and movies, against the eventuality that Paramount will send minions out to destroy them all and hence complete J.J.'s utter destruction of Gene's legacy?

Re: So I bought a safe.

Judging by your account of your talk with the salesperson, I get that there's greatness in you, but there's not an ounce of humility. You think that you can't make mistakes, but there's going to come a moment when you realize you're wrong about that, and you're going to get your stuff and everyone's stuff under your watch stolen.

I thought minions belonged to Universal.

Dammit, slid in to say this an hour and a half too late

Won't do any good though, JJ is too insidious, a safe will not protect what came before from being erased, the minions will just use super high powered magnets to degause them

My safe is better than yours... at everything.

Re: So I bought a safe.

When the salesperson kept trying to jam my belongings in the safe, maintaining that "It'll fit." Eventually, the only solution was to disassemble everything. "I do not think that qualifies," I told him.

Then I noticed that he had torn the edge of a priceless piece of memorabilia.

"You have no idea what you have done."
