Here's your Trek fix. 
Notable points about this episode:
* Colin Baker guest stars. You may remember him as The Doctor (Doctor Who)
* Marina Sirtis (Counselor Troi from STNG) provides the voice of the Computer. While Majel Rodenberry is sorely missed, they couldn't have found a better replacement.
* As usual for STC, Chris Doohan (son of late actor James Doohan) fills his fathers' shoes in the role of Scotty.
* Many characters from prior episodes return. You'll just have to see.
* The title is superbly chosen

NPR reports that 1 in 4 Americans think the Sun goes around the Earth. So did Sherlock Holmes. For a great many people this bit of information is of no practical use whatsoever.
I often complain about "junk science", and in that context I've talked about expertise "within a domain". Here's where I do the same, but with a possibly surprising opinion. This was seen on NPR.com: 1 In 4 Americans Thinks T...

Honestly, with internet nowadays you don't need to know anything, just how to parse information.

I don't know how to build a computer and I don't need to, with the internet I can figure it out.

Also, everyone knows the sun is Appollo's flaming chariot.

I'm posting this for no reason whatsoever. Nope. It's totally unrelated to any conversation I may have had in the recent past concerning the British television show, "Spaced".

Another #TreeFable  
I've made it to the top of this tower and hooked my transmitter to the aerial, but now they have me surrounded. I don't have much time: I can hear their roots digging into the foundations. Is there anyone out there? If you ca...

The trees are out there, waiting for you. You're going to get hungry. You're going to come out. And then you're going to explain why this place is called "Stumphouse Tunnel". This picture is copyrighted by Everett Leigh and ...

Note: This essay is entirely opinion. There's nothing scientific about it. I'm going to ramble a bit. AND I'm going to use bad words. F-words. Lots and lots of F-words. And it will probably change as I think about it some mor...

Interesting. Is your definition of a scientist then someone who applies the scientific method, rather than related to a particular field?

Surely then a programmer is the perfect scientist, you have an objective and you test stuff till it works. Sensationalist programming is non existent, either code works or it didn't.

C'mon, Canada... you're supposed to be better than this. A 20-year extension of copyrights for corporate interests is just a case of "monkey-see, monkey-do".

"The term of related rights must reflect a balance between  incentives, market freedom and costs for society. This balance will be upset when terms are extended for the mere reason that content subject to expiration still has market value. The public domain is not merely a graveyard of recordings that have lost all value in the market place. It is also an essential source of inspiration to subsequent creators, innovators and distributors."
Randy Bachman, the well-known Canadian musician, found himself embroiled in a public fight with Prime Minister Stephen Harper last year when Harper used his song "Takin' Care of Business" as a theme song for a major speech. Bachman said he probably would not have granted permission to use the song, since "I don't think he's taking care of business for the right people or the right reasons." Bachman was singing a different tune yesterday as the go...

I judge a person by the content of their messages, not the color of the bubbles. #growupApple

Another Tree Fable.
Though battle-scarred and weary, General Quercus makes his yearly pilgrimage to the gravesite to witness once again what they have done to his father's bones. Soon he will return to the fight with a dogged determination arisi...

Today, a bonus #TreeFable  
This tree has found a pet on the beach. The tree loves his new pet very much. He will take it home and he will name it George, and he will hug it and pet it and squeeze it... This picture is copyrighted by F. Everett Leigh, ...
