Before we get to the meat of the post, I heard on NPR this morning that the North Carolina legislature is considering a new custom license plate. We have them for colleges, for nature, for history. Now they want to produce a plate that bears the message, “I would rather be shagging.”
In North Carolina, that’s a completely innocent message. The Shag is the state dance, so they said in the report. But to our English cousins, a shag is something completely different. And no, it’s not a cut of pipe tobacco.
Now for the real reason for posting. I saw this on Bill Leisner‘s LiveJournal. You know the saying, “A little knowledge is a dangerous thing”? Well, have at it:
| Trekkie Nerd
Congratulations! You scored 83%!
|Congratulations – your designation as a Trekkie Nerd means that you are statistically more likely to be a virgin, socially inept, live at home in your mother’s basement and have no chance of scoring a chick like Seven. Still, if knowledge of temporal paradoxes, the repercussions of the Janeway effect and an intimate knowledge of Klingon history made big bucks, you’d be a millionaire. Ah, tis the sweet irony of life.|
