Want a free dozen Krispy Kreme donuts on 9/19/2012?!

Who doesn’t!?
I’m going to start by saying Nerd-Base.com is not, whatsoever endorsed by Krispy Kreme (seriously though, that would be rad…one day the site will be big enough…maybe). Also, I am not a fan of the pirate fad. What self-respecting geek doesn’t love tasty junk food and coffee? Anyway, I do love their donuts and signed up for the mailing list because they often have fun specials like this. This is seriously pretty ridiculous and I just had to share.

Seriously. That’s kind of awesome.

So, because I find this so amusing, if any of you decide to go the full-blown pirate route, and go to a Krispy Kreme all dressed up, send me pictures and I’ll post it on the site and link to your blog/twitter/ect just because that’s kind of awesome.

Have fun!!

George Takei as the Doctor!?

Written by: Christopher Lee

My friend Sarah (check out her blog) just picked up a ukelele and learned how to play “Row, Row, Row Your Boat”. She posted the achievement on facebook, to which I replied by posting the camping scene from “Star Trek V” where the crew sings along to Spock’s plinking on his Vulcan Lute. This, of course, resulted in me watching a few more clips from the classic adventure where I noted a quick, funny little thing…..

Sulu, better known as the social media giant George Takei, performing a quick little scene that, to me, felt VERY reminiscent of a certain “3rd incarnation” of everyone’s favorite travelling Doctor. As if we needed more proof of Mr. Takei’s awesomenitude (yeah, I just made that up, but it’s fitting and you like it.)

Watch from about :20 to :34…

 I mean, c’mon…the “capelet”, the “judo” (though, to be picky, it looks more like Aikido), the “sonic screwdriver-esque” tool he uses. It’s too obvious to me to NOT be a “nod”. What do you think?
