That's how fandom works. Look at any popular sport.

The LA Times recently ran a story about the Child Exploitation Section of the Toronto Sex Crimes Unit, which contained a mind-boggling statistic: of the more than 100 offenders the unit has arrested over the last four years, "all but one" has been "a hard-core Trekkie." Blogger Ernest Miller thought this claim was improbable. "I could go to a science fiction convention," he explained "and be less likely to find that 99+ percent of the attendees were hard-core Trekkies." While there may be quibbling about the exact numbers, the Toronto detectives claim that the connection is undeniable.

In fact, Star Trek paraphernalia has so routinely been found at the homes of the pedophiles they've arrested that it has become a gruesome joke in the squad room. (On the wall, there is a Star Trek poster with the detectives' faces replacing those of the crew members). This does not mean that watching Star Trek makes you a pedophile. It does mean that if you're a pedophile, odds are you've watched a lot of Star Trek.


Pretty much the same thing now, so here it is.

Take-away being that cops are such habitual liars that they've lost all perspective on what is or isn't a credible lie?

If you look closely you can see that the Queen's ship also has two gun ports on the bottom side, too. Missile launchers maybe?

Maybe it is kind of like how base model cars still have cutouts for fog lights, but they just put a plastic grill in there to fill the space if you don't buy that option.

On my car they're for the tractor beam.

Film has already passed $100 million in advance ticket sales. Previous record holder was The Dark Knight at $25 million. These numbers are insane.

Posts about race and cops, you see I reply, and it's about Natalie Portman's stupid chrome space ship. It'd be nice to get a little pat on the back to make sure the joke's not going over everybody's head. Ah well.

I was thinking about the movie and why everyone expects it to be good. After all, J.J. Abrams made it. And he's made such classics as... uh.... looking at his filmography, has he ever been involved in a good movie? I can't see one. It's too bad you can't trust reviewers these days, so I'll have to wait until the weekend to explain why the movie sucked.

Besides police officers and arguing on the internet, is there anything you do like?

It's possible I did miss the joke ...
I'm not sure which movies he directed. At least one Star Trek flick I guess. Was it the one where they're all young?

Super 8 wasn't bad at all. Not great, but not bad.

^ I liked the first half of that quite a bit.

Super 8 is a lot of fun. It feels like a call back to the 80's when we got films of kids going off on adventures. I rather liked it. Star Trek (2009) is excellent and J.J. directed the best of the Mission Impossible films.
