    If you don't read xkcd (online comic strip) you should there was a trek reference

    (I suppose xkcd should go in the Science and Technology area since it pokes fun at that all the time...)

    I love that Troi is there and she isn't even the one to figure the language out.

    Technically, she can't because she only reads emotions. But then again, it is just a joke.

    This reminds me....

    The 2012 U.S. Presidential Election is just around the corner. Better get my bumper stickers out....

    :lol:

    And considering how the president's car is referred to as The Beast...

    "THE BEAST OF TANAGRA!"

    Thus...Tanagra is The White House. Darmok and Jalad were opposites of a sort in their party--one an "Establishment" type, the other a "Populist" type.

    They come together, to bring unity to the party in question.

    And, they sail off on to victory:

    "DARMOK AND JALAD...ON THE OCEAN."

    Does anyone know where I can get on of these bumper stickers? I've been searching everywhere. My dad would probably pee himself if he saw that on his bumper.

    ^Ah--more appropriate to the language:

    "Victor, his monster restored!"

    It's not really a bumper sticker. It's just a photobomb I found somewhere online. Though, if you take it to any printing shop, they could probably make it into a real bumper sticker for you. ;)
