    Dr Spock? He of the comprehensive knowledge of infants? You mean Mr Spock, he of the elegant eyebrow and flawlessly logical mind.

    We Star Trek fans DEMAND that the Star Wars fans apologise for this horrific and offensive slight against the One True Franchise.

    Who will draw up our petition?

    I see justice in the US is for the Warsie only! When will we Trekkies cease being second-class citizens?!

    :p

    Yeah. Not only has the petitioner obviously never watched Star Trek, he's obviously never watched Star Wars, either. :lol:

    Fucking Warsies. ;)

    The truth of course is that the President knows what too many people don't:

    I felt a grave disturbance in the Force at that very moment...as if a million Star Wars fans suddenly cried out a collective "Nnnnooooooo"

    George Takei is on The Ed Show right now, saying that he doesn't think it was really a flub. He thinks that the President is trying to get the opposing sides to find common ground.

    Interesting; perhaps it was some kind of Freudian slip.

    ^ Yep. The images show up for me. What, is PB down again or something, so the images don't show up for everyone?

    I can only say that I can't see them and that when I don't see images they're usually hosted by by that bucket of shit (that's an opinion - not the new and improved name for it).

    There is no common ground to be had. lightspeed /= warp, blasters /= phasers, missiles /= photon torpedoes, "*beep* *boop* she just lost her will to live" /= "I am modulating the shield nutation to compensate for the gravimetric anomaly"

    The only thing they might have in common is once letting a very irritating, spoiled kid fly a ship.

    Star Wars is what you'd get if Wesley Crusher was the central character.

    Locutus, the photobucket images show up fine for me. :)

    Photobucket sucks. And it doesn't like boobies.

    I think I am too... it's actually a lot of fun trolling RL SW-fanboys :rommie: - But mostly because the expression wouldn't be a lie if I were to wear it.
