I was born in NY in the late 60's, and moved to PA in 1985. I'm a Christian, a Klingon, a vegetarian, and a real nice guy with a firm and conservative moral standing.

I will never understand the whole Klingon thing.

I am reasonably sure you cannot be a klingon and a christian, and a vegetarian. As the klingons killed all their gods, and they eat live gak.

"I will never understand the whole Klingon thing."

... I'm 6'0" , 252lbs. , and am blessed with an I.Q. of 137. I don't smoke or drink, and I have NEVER even TRIED drugs. I went to college for a few years, but I wasn't able to finish my degree. I have a good job that pays well, but I always wanted to be a teacher. I'm a member of several Klingon organizations. I'm currently single, thou I hope to cure this curse someday...

Guess he's a southern klingon.

Yeah, that's right, all laugh at the poor pathetic geek.

No, I mean it. Have a good laugh.

And thus he made a strong case for narcotics use.

Ever since the SW Kid, geeks have to work much harder to get my laugh. I didn't even crack a smile at this one.

I don't understand the point of the FPP. (It is actually also a double post, but that's another story.)

Note that the bandwidth exceeded page (on the "Klingon" link) installs Gator. Fsckers.

(It is actually also a double post, but that's another story.)

It wasn't a Front Page Post, merely a link in one of the comments, therefore making it NOT a double post, if I recall the numerous meta-callouts concerning double posting.

I still don't get the point of it though.
posted by eustacescrubb at 6:09 PM on October 4, 2004


kamylyon, I think what everyone's trying to say is DOES HE SUPPORT BUSH OR KERRY?

'cause that's all that really matters.

And fish.

In pants.

This strong moral stance makes me think the Klingon remark is only a gaff; however, Klingon's are notorious for being devout followers (like Christians) and very stubborn (like vegans- What do you mean fish is not a meat?). I predict this person will do well for the Empire patroling the Forbidden Zone.

I never claimed to get the point, I just posted for a buddy that can't because he has no spoon. I mean, account.

Get this dnab guy an account. IMMEDIATELY!!!

I think that we are entitled--nay, obliged--to laugh at people who think they are Klingons.

And when people think they are Klingons AND Christians at the same time, for the reasons adumbrated above by MrLint, it's comedy gold.

Because, you see, it's both crazy AND illogical.

Also, people who brag about their IQs are funny. Except for Marilyn vos Savant--she's just scary.

>No, I mean it. Have a good laugh.

That's no geek that's just a dork.

Bart: This little trap is going to make my dad angrier than he's ever been. Meanwhile, I gotta tell those Internet guys to hold tight.
Milhouse: Can I come too?
Bart: Good idea. You can speak nerd to them.
Milhouse: I'm not a nerd, Bart. Nerds are smart.

Let the quest for Klingon links proceed!

I've long believed that the self-defined NeoCon "Vulcans" are really Klingons, but that's just me.

elwoodwiles, that's actually reason number two or three. Probably happened shortly after December 5th, 1969.

"Our form of foreplay is hazardous to your species."

Is he also a furry?

I eagerly await teh 0berdork. They'll be some sort of hopped-up pagan Renn Faire 0wning, superfurry LARPing Jedi-Lingon, militant Jainist Christian Neo-Nazi vegan-straight-edged crush-fetished slashfic Rocky Horror muthafucka.

That link will one day come. And when it does, heads the world over will explode.

Especially when said Oberdork posts a protest in the subsequent thread and turns out to have a two digit mefi membership number.

I have NEVER even TRIED drugs.

Never tried the waste product of yeast? Doesn't drink Soda, coffee, tea - what with that evil caffeine. Or how about the sugared beans of the theheobroma cacao plant?

Not even acetylsalicylic acid?

Pitty the man for he has not found the wonders of drugs!

Don't Klingons - if deprived of meat - break down into pools of gelatinous goo or grow huge flabby teats, or something ?
posted by troutfishing at 11:46 AM on October 5, 2004


they eat live gak

<geek>
Actually, MrLint, Klingons eat live gagh. They're little wormies. Gak, on the other hand, was a "compound product" by the people who created the kiddie channel Nickelodeon. I'm pretty sure it's inedible.
