    Some Comedian whose name escapes me at this hour said that he got hateful tweets for posting a picture of a cabbage.

    Twit-verse is not worth the time.

    Cabbage? Is there an allusion there that I should know about?

    The point is that there isn't. Sometimes a cabbage is just a cabbage... unless you're a Twitterer.

    Twitter is just limbic system overdrive. Freud would be proud.

    Random question: I’ve read that the Fresnel lenses used as the transporter pads in TOS were later incorporated in the ceiling of the TNG transporter. Does anyone know what happened to them after that or where they are today?

    Quark stole them and sold them for a profit.

    How would Worf killing Kurn differ from Dr Timicin? Picard supported T's right to commit suicide.

    Worf’s a member of Starfleet?

    He was on his lunch break. Is he not allowed to practice his cultural norms when he's off the clock?

    I don't think Worf properly "clocked out" for that break. He just took off his communicator and snuck out. So he was AWOL.

    Plus, as a Starfleet officer he is probably subject to Starfleet regulations even when he is off duty. That's how real-world armies and navies work, isn't it?

    Edit: Oops, for the part about taking off his communicator and walking out, I was thinking about the thing with Duras.

    I don't think Worf could have been accused of murder in this case. The proper term is "assisted suicide", given that Kurn was provably a willing participant. Unless Starfleet is ruled by a bunch of unnuanced brutes they must be capable of making that distinction. Now the question is what are Starfleet rules on assisted suicide? I'll say that if they're half as evolved and civilized as they purport to be then there hardly should be any punishment for that. Plus Picard seemed perfectly Ok with Riker assisting Worf's suicide. So a little coherence would be appreciated.

    I just watched that one. He was practically shoving the knife into Will's hand.

    About the cabbage mentioned above. Everytime cabbage is mentioned one must remember cabbage patch kids.
