Beam Me Up Scotty!  

Tuesday, June 24, 2008

Before William Shatner was telling you to name your own price he heading back to earth in Star Trek IV: The Voyage Home with a reborn Spock only to find a "Probe" was acoustically attacking the earth and destroying it at the same time. In their stolen Kilngon Bird of Prey the zoomed around the sun back in time to 1986 San Francisco. Let's pause here for dramatic effect. OKay... well now that Kirk and the crew are in the city and searching for the source of the "probes" attack, which we find to be Hump Back Whales. I would have chosen Blue Whales my self but Hump Backs I guess are the chosen ones. Anyway Scotty has to devise a means to transport The Whale, Bob and Bobbette or something like that, and all their water in the Bird of Prey "Back To The Future". NO NOT A Delorean. Scotty and Bones goes to a Plexiglas company and give them formula to make sheet of Plexiglas strong enough to hold the pressure of the water. Normal Plexiglas would have been 3 feet thick but Scotty gives the manufacture the formula to make it the same strength but only 1 & 1/2 inches. Amazing HUH????

So why did I feel like flashing back to 1986? Well FOXNews has a story on a new type of glass that is as strong as metal! They compared it to Wonder Woman's flying airplane. Ah the Lynda Carter and her magic lasso and her umm.... well you get the idea. Probably why I did not relate this blog to Wonder Woman, but I digress. I guess this new metallic glass means that kids will now feel free to use the rose bush in front of Mrs Blandersmears picture window for home plate and any birds flying into it might well want to start wearing crash helmets.

The only part where Kirk and his cronies messed up was they took an enviro-mental-ist to the future.
