Forever alone

So, naturally, I've been playing oodles of Star Trek Online, despite the fact that it's a very mediocre game.  Like I told my brother, it's the only new Trek game (worth playing) out there, so I'm playing it.  However, it still has some enjoyable moments, like the multilayer and coop modes.  Whatever.

There have been plenty of things in the past couple months I've kinda wanted to write about, but not enough to break my trend of laziness, and because that would make me stop playing Star Trek, so I guess I'll just have to get caught up on all that later.  In the meantime, because I'm such a rabid fanboy of the XCR, here's a video from the infamous nutnfancy at the SHOT show taking a close look at the newer and improved XCR.

more shennanigans

So while at work today, I was simply thinking of something funny that made me do my signature "crazy guy snicker".  A coworker noticed my laughter and asked what's up.  I explained, "Well, I'm just a big enough nerd that there's nothing that doesn't remind me of a Star Trek quote."

He replies with, "Wow.  That's sad."
Me:  "Yeah, I've realized I'll be dying alone."
Coworker:  "Well, there are girls into Star Trek."
Me:  "Yeah, I'm not really looking for that.  Just someone who can put up with it."
Coworker:  "Cosplay enthusiasts?"

I dunno why, but that was the funniest thing I've heard all week.

You thought drivers in your town were bad...

So, yeah.  Once again it's been a while.....long time no see....yadda, yadda, yadda.  Anyways, straight to the meat of the topic.  It's snowing like like all the angels in heaven decided to shake off all their dandruff at the same time!  The thing that gets me is that we've hardly had any snow on the ground at all this year until Saturday, then all of a sudden, WHOOM!  There it is.   What's especially funny is the spectacle of bad driving this makes for.  My town is renown for bad drivers but I have embedded video proof below, shot by a fellow citizen.  It starts off slow, but it gets good

Seriously, next time it snows, hows about we all set up an awning, with a BBQ and tailgate on 400 North, so we can hold up some oversize cards to judge the crashes.
