Leo: Of course you’re going to be a great father, of course you’re going to love your kids the way you’re supposed to, the way other fathers-
Toby: My god, Leo. We look around, and we see that’s not true. It’s not automatic.
Leo: I’m not talking about everybody, I’m talking about you, and I’m saying it’s a mortal lock.

Yeah, this scene pretty well captures my feelings on the matter

Planet of Hats

1 Comment

This is a breath of fresh air after the mess that was The Final Frontier, and we can be thankful that the powers-that-were made this movie, to say goodbye to the original cast in some sort of style, rather than leaving a bitter taste in the mouth. And we get to see Janice Rand at least get a speaking role to bookend Grace Lee Whitney's career in Star Trek too.

And Sulu finally gets his own command, too. You get a good sense of how kick-ass he'd be as a captain in this film - a tantalising glimpse at what could have been if a series had been made chronicling the exploits of Captain Sulu and USS Excelsior.


Captain's log, Stardate 9521.9. Hikaru Sulu commanding USS Excelsior. Charting gaseous anomalies—
Valtane: A huge shock wave!!
SFX: Baruum
Kerla: This is the Klingon High Command. Our moon totally didn't explode. We're fine. We're all fine here now, thank you. How are you?
Rand: Do we report this?
Sulu: Are you frickin' kidding?
Caption: It's Janice Rand!
{Starfleet Command, Earth}
Commander-in-Chief: The Klingons want peace. Kirk, escort Chancellor Gorkon to Earth for peace talks.
Spock: I have personally vouched for you.
Kirk: You... personally... vouched.....
Spock: For your eloquence.
{Enterprise bridge}
Spock: My protégé, Lieutenant Valeris.
Kirk: What happened to Saavik?
Valeris: She had something more cheerful to do.
Uhura: Klingon battle cruiser.
Sulu: Finally, an actual Klingon ship in one of these movies instead of a repurposed Romulan wessel.
Kirk: Chancellor Gorkon. Please join us for dinner on Enterprise.
Gorkon: I'd be delighted.
Spock: Diplomacy. The art of asking for something you don't want, from someone who doesn't want to give it to you, and both accepting.
{transporter room}
Gorkon: My daughter Azetbur, my chief of staff General Chang.
Chang: Kirk, my fellow warrior. When the dog bites, when the bee stings...
{dining room}
Gorkon: A toast. The undiscovered country! The future!
Spock: Hamlet, act 3, scene 1. I thought it referred to death.
Gorkon: Eh, same difference.
Caption: Sure enough…
Spock: Captain, we have fired on the Klingon ship.
Kirk: What?!
SFX: Pow
Caption: Magnetic boot wearing assassins beam over:
SFX: Zap!
Gorkon: Aargh!
Caption: CGI blood
Caption: Daft punks
{Klingon ship}
Kirk: Bones! Save him!
McCoy: He's dead, Jim.
Chang: You will pay for this, Kirk! Bless my homeland forever!
{Klingon court on Qo'noS}
Klingon judge: You are sentenced to life on the penal colony of Rura Penthe.
Kirk: Hmm. Are there any alien space babes there?

Like the actual film, the best part is Christopher Plummer randomly spouting lines from Shakespeare and/or The Sound of Music.

Boys need to be cuddled more. Put his head in your lap or on your chest. Stroke his hair, scratch his back lightly with your nails, rub his shoulders, kiss him on the top of his head. Anytime, not just when he’s feeling down or trying to fall asleep.

Would you rather get to make out with whoever you most want to make out with, whenever you want to make out (and they're totally into it too) for a year or get really good sleep for a year?

Okay, well, I at least believe the making out one is plausible. But the sleep one?

Making out. Yeah. That one sounds really good.

As someone who is lucky enough to have children who sleep well, and a lovely spouse who is the first responder on the overnight shift, and generally has no trouble with sleep, I will acknowledge my privilege while choosing make-outs.

Seriously, it kills me when I see people hold scientists up as pinnacles of logic and reason.

Because one time the professor I was interning for got punched in the face by another professor, because mine got the funding, and told the other professor his theory was stupid.

This same professor told me to throw rocks to scare the “stupid fucking crabs” into moving so we could count them properly.


thank you

this is one of the best comments this post has recieved

I have witnessed:

Two professors hiding around a corner and snickering, “Shhh, here she comes!” While a female professor approached and, when she finally found them, she proceeded to scream while pointing from one to the other, “You! I called your office but you weren’t there! So I tried to call YOUR office to figure out where HE was but YOU weren’t there!”

Two grad students standing outside a closed and locked door yelling, “Come out of the damn office. You haven’t left for days. If you didn’t have a couch in there I’d be concerned as to where you were sleeping!”

A religious studies professor apologizing for being late to class because, “security stopped me because I’m dressed like a hobbit”

Watched a professor snort the results of my experiment to determine if I had the right final compound.

Two archeology professors toss priceless fossilized teeth back and forth in an attempt to figure out who is smarter by “guessing the type of tooth and species of animal before it lands”

Multiple fully degreed individuals throw dry ice at one another in an attempt to be first to use the lab/get that piece of equipment/or change the iPod song.

A genetics professor build furniture out of stacks of paper and planks of wood because she is that far behind in grading papers/responding. One of the impromptu furniture pieces housed a fish tank.

I could go on but I think that covers the larger portion of the insanity…

Every time it comes around on my dash, it gets better.

- I have had a professor buy a huge fuckoff bottle of rum during fieldwork in Costa Rica and let the undergrads get wasted because “you’re not underage in Costa Rica and we’ll be up all night with the bats anyway!”

- Same professor hung a bat from her headlamp and wore it as a decoration for an entire night. 

- A whole swarm of older women - and these are women with PhDs and world-renown bat experts, the bigwigs - all, to a woman, go to the formal charity dinner at an international research symposium in Toronto in late October dressed in skimpy Batgirl costumes. Because Halloween was that weekend, you see.

- At a different conference, a professor get blackout drunk and pass out on the side of the road. 

- “Yeah, we have to say we did it properly for the grant but to be really honest, Miracle-gro works better.”

- Teaching lab: we had liquid nitrogen for a demo, and after class the professor, the other TA, and I spent a good two hours freezing and breaking things in it. 

a chemistry class begins with 30 students nine months later just six of us left sitting on tables dipping paper into contaminated chemicals to see what happens when we burn it teacher making idle suggestions while he marks our work

“go to the fume hood thing, yeah now put some potassium in chlorine” can i burn the results sir? “fuck it sure whatever its tainted anyway”

The prof I’m working for just asked me if I knew how to pick a lock, and when I responded “yes” she replied, “see, this is why I hire the former delinquents instead of the suck-ups. You’re actually useful.”

I then let her into her office.

“Security stopped me because I’m dressed like a hobbit.” I would bet anything this has happened to Dr. Medievalist.

Semi-related non-academic anecdote: The concert hall security guys tried to throw out our violone player in between performances this spring because they thought he was a homeless guy. Despite the fact that he was wearing concert black… and carrying a violone. There is no more obvious instrument.

One of my English Professors admitted that sometimes “you just have to do a soliloquy” and would phone up the main office of the department on the internal phoneline to recite a Shakespearean monologue at them. No greeting, no warning, just “To be or not to be”.

every time i read this stuff i think about how upset vulcans would be to meet earth’s greatest scientific minds
