Although not specifically about the Irish populace, of which I have the horrible, horrible honor of being decended, I feel I must relate occurances that have happened to me, because, well, I guess both you and I have nothing better to do.
Try and deny it, but you're readin'.
I never knew that a certain joke was such a devastating reality, in the respect that it could shatter worlds like glass, and puncture dreams like tyres. Tyres being punctured. Not tyres puncturing things.
You got it.
A common joke is often:
"Guffaw, Star Trek is so sought after by nerds its practically a religion"
The reality is, It is a goddam religion.
At least, in the sense that the nerds defend as such.
When someone starts waving knowledge about vulcan mating rituals in your face, you know you have to get out of there as fast as you fossibly can, because that Star Trek motherfucker will destroy your soul, and erase any useful information you had in your brain, and replace it with pure Spock.
I know people are going to say "But Luke, you like Star Trek", and its true, to the degree that I will watch it, and enjoy it in a way that I will sit back and think "that was an programme with good things".
However, I am not devoted to the point that I believe that fans need their own goddam food.
That would be the stupidest suggestion.
My typical reaction is to avoid such people, but lest the situation be unavoidable, I will be forced to take action. No more will a Star Trek enthusiast destroy me on an internet forum. Especially since Its the only forum I take place on, (I think they are stupid) and im using to apparently "make friends" (Its that univesity one).
My blood boils. And not for the usual reasons. Because I stopped eating red meat and full fat cream as a meal.
I stopped hardcore.
He got joo joo eyeballs?
