Don’t you just love when those pesky aliens tell you to do things

Yes, he confessed, but Christopher Erin Rogers didn’t actually kill anyone in Anchorage in December 2007, defense attorney David Weber told a jury Tuesday as Rogers’ murder trial got under way in Anchorage.

The day Jason Wenger was shot and killed in Spenard and Liz Rumsey was shot and seriously injured on a downtown bike trail, Rogers watched the news, Weber said. And the next day, when he decided to steal Tamas Deak’s car, he imitated what he’d seen and shot Deak, Weber said.

On the flip side, however, I’ve never thought that the Captain’s chair ever needed a seat-belt. Particularly Kirk’s. C’mon. Kirk was made of steel, man. A seat-belt would be an insult to him.

So when I saw this, I was happy that they had not retro-fitted it with a protective belt:
Comfy? Not sure. Cool? Hell, yeah.Comfy? Not sure. Cool? Hell, yeah. Continue reading… “Kirk’s Chair Is Now Avaliable For Your Home”
