Based on that photo, if Shatner was a baseball manager, do you think he'd be on board with sabermetrics?


Nope. Old school. But he would ask Nimoy for a tricorder reading.

 I watched them both; and DS9; but opted out with Voyager and the Star Trek prequel series.

 

I kinda pealed off halfway through DS9 myself, and started following Babylon 5 when i could.Haven't seen enough of the subsequent shows to have an opinion more informed than Voyager reminds me of Gilligan's Island...

 

Too young for original (except in syndication, of course) and TNG was kinda up there with X-files or Simpsons as a social gathering. 

 

But the DS9 Premier was at after midnight while my crew team was in Florida training, and we told the couch we were all staying up for it, and he canceled the next morning practice.An understanding coach, that one.

 

But i really enjoyed Galaxy Quest!

Wonder if he is a little more symmetrical than this other (Mike?!) Gonzalez?

How did Cows get the monopoly on Milk?

Bison... Goats... Pigs... Raccoons could all produce and be sold in stores. Louie Pasteur could certainly heat and quickly cool that stuff as well.

I grew up in the country but not on a farm.  My dad owned a grain elevator and feed mill.

 

We had the usual assortment of cats and dogs but the only real "farm animals" we had was pigs.  Whenever there would be runts, Dad would sort them out and we kids had to hand-raise them.  It was  a pretty good deal -- Dad paid for everything and when they were sold, we got the money in our savings account.s

 

On the other hand, selling something you've raised by hand is never easy -- don't name your pig!!

I only want my milk from cows and I only want it after it has been processed to death.  1%, please.

 

I remember going to neighbors who did have cows and I could hardly choke down the milk they drank.  I'll take mine from the store, please.

Oh, and I want the cows to be corn fed not grass fed.

 

Okay, okay, I'm a little picky.

Bison... no human who has ever tasted the milk survived the experience of obtaining it.

Goats... for hippies and weirdos I suppose

Pigs... you'd make some poor runt of the litter suffer just so you can enjoy a nice glass of milk?

Raccoons... their teats are too small and I can't get good suction, jury is still out on the taste as a result

Rattlesnake... tastes like chicken milk

You'll have to finance the next ModCon if you want another 20-run outburst when we attend a game.
