Many apologies. I shant bring it up again. How about "The differences between Americans and Canadians" jokes? Are those still ok?

Is this as bad, or worse, than two exclamation points?

Shant? Haven't heard that word since the last time I watched the old Parent Trap movie. Wow.

You hadn't really crossed the line yet, MJ. I was just letting you know before you did. And yeah, jokes about nationalities are fine, just not politics -- some people are very touchy about that. I learned the hard way.

Can anyone hear that spinning sound? I think it's coming from the direction of Gene Roddenberry's grave..

PHJ, the correct statement is "Enterprise was okay, but all the extras made it hard to see Trip sometimes."

Anyone else enjoy seeing Roddenberry's Enterprise coffin in the Dilbert cartoon?

I think the real irony of the bashers' constant "spinning in his grave" comments is that everyone knows Gene was cremated. Some of his ashes were launched into orbit, remember?

Ok, so his urn is orbiting. Soon it will create gravity, and destroy the Earth in a hellish forestorm of condensed matter.

I like the way you think.

That's not a compliment.

I'm never excellent at anything - far better in my book to be really bad at lots of different things. If I'm going to be a failure, I might as well really excel at it!

If you try to fail, and succeed, what have you done?
