    That's just what the Matrix wants you to think.

    I'm Mirror Spock all the way down, baby, balls to bones.

    Or maybe Mirror Universe Picard. I wonder what he would have been like. More like Kirk, probably. Long winded, obnoxious, undisciplined. A rabble rouser.

    Just realized we're grandpas, TV-land wise... some people here have no fucking clue what we're talking about.

    Mirror Universe is "Opposites Day" in Star Trek Land. I really liked Mirror Universe Uhura, she wasn't afraid to break barriers. You can almost still sense the NBC censors going out of their minds.

    But without eidetic memory or two pHDs.

    Although you may well have a bit more athletic ability...

    I liked how his battle of wills vrs The Omega was represented as two judo throws looped for like ten minutes.

    Even better are the times when the Dr. whips out Venusian Aikido or Martian Karate and kicks ass.

    That's where you can find the real Aikido. Venus.

    One of my favorite lines in Dr. Who:

    "I always find that violent exercise makes me hungry, don't you agree?", followed by a bite of sandwich. Classy.

    I agree completely. I even like the ancient episodes, where it was straight-up educational TV concealed in a time travel meme. The reboot gets all the attention... and it's just not that good.

    That's not entirely accurate. You're probably thinking new Doctor Who, which is a lot more fantasy and CGI monsters.

    Old Doctor Who had plenty of real science and was more sci-fi....robots, AI, quantum physics, etc.

    Here's Tom Baker discussing the invention of the radio telescope (albeit its purpose in this particular episode is to receive a distress signal regarding an ancient Egyptian god living on Mars).

    The worst scifi fanboys are Whovians. I am one so I know.

    They're cancelling superhero shows left and right....we've kept the same TV show running for over 50 years.

    Who-ra.

    HM posted Picard eating a sandwich and I just ran with it, but if you want to beat on the person who brought in SW/Jar Jar, it's all him.
    Actually, the crux of that video was a story Picard told about a Streetfight from his youth. He had his enemy on the ground in a "devious joint lock" but ended up getting impaled in the back by the dude's friend.

    Ergo, BJJ is for pussies.
