Sulu comes out of the closet in warp factor 9, rainbow trails



Mr. Sulu
has caught the gay, probably from the poppies on Alpha III, but fret not as I’m sure Bones will find cure in the last ten minutes of the episode. On a serious note, that episode where Sulu runs down the Enterprise’s
halls shirtless, oiled and waving a sword, will never be looked at
the same way again. Ever. [yahoo story]

A lover’s quarrel.. "Sigfried you b**ch! Ztop it, you are upzetting zee tigers-s-s-s-s.

Bad: Getting caught masturbating on the job. Worse: Doing it to porn you’ve downloaded onto the company computer. Worst: You’re a cop, on duty, in your patrol car, and it’s the police laptop you are using.




Are diamonds really a girl’s best friend?  For such a tiny little thing, we sure ask our husbands to be to spend a lot of money on it. I can think of about 480,000 better ways to spend the money.  Then again Eliza Doolittle did say "Sing me no song! Read me no rhyme! Don’t waste my time, Show me!" Pfft. Well I know for a fact J-Lo said love don’t cost a thing.[ONTD’s post on Engagement Rings of the stars]

The Orange Man Project



"The Idea:

A few weeks ago I was talking with my roommate.
I can’t remember what it was about, but somehow the topic of carrots
came up. Now, my roommate is a friggin genius about all things medical
and conspiratal. If it involves the two together, he is a super genius.
Don’t even get him started about how the government is rigging football
games to control the population, because it will blow your mind.

So yeah, carrots. He tells me that if someone eats a whole lot of
carrots, they will turn orange for a while. I find it hard to believe,
but he is always right about such things. It’s also important to note
that he doesn’t actually specify how many carrots or for how long one
would turn orange. For all I know at this point, it could be following
the, "you are what you eat" principle and turning you into an actual carrot."

I don’t think you can call this a ‘brilliant’ plan but it does sort of makes you thank the internet for allowing us to see others do stupid things for our reading enjoyment from the comfort of our own bedroom/office/cubicle/basement. [orange man’s site]

Goonies – 20 Year Reunion



"I watched "The Goonies" last night – I can’t believe it’s 20 years old.
We *loved* that movie so much as kids. It was on HBO all the time, and
I think we watched it everytime it came on. Brand and Stefanie were my
favorites. I like Stefanie’s quote: "Oh, this is terrific. This is
great. I feel like I’m babysitting except I’m not getting paid." And
when the fish jumps out at her. Funny."

Take a look at this post concerning the classic movie Goonies and see what the actors look like today.[goonies goodness]
