It’s fascinating to note that Star Trek could imagine tablet computers (PADDs), but couldn’t imagine that they’d be able to run more than one program at a time, or that they’d have tabbed functions, or even that data could be sent through digital means instead of putting it on a PADD and physically handing it to someone, leading to scenes where characters juggle six or seven PADDs at a time, each one for a different task, or my favorite, the scenes where Neelix hands out letters to the crew on individual PADDs as if they were actual, physical letters.

Happy as always to be included in your “Works Referenced” section, but holy smokes, even I don’t roast quite this hard. Good god, OP. That man has a FAMILY.

…Oh, wait.

…Pretty sure that last one only gets on with the “Oversize Load” tag.

Why are you smuggling that man onto the Enterprise?

TIL the average color of light in the universe is a shade of beige dubbed “Cosmic Latte”

via ift.tt

from wikipedia: Cosmic latte is a name assigned to the average color of the universe, found by a team of astronomers from Johns Hopkins University. In 2001, Karl Glazebrook and Ivan Baldry determined that the average color of the universe was a greenish white, but they soon corrected their analysis in a 2002 paper in which they reported that their survey of the light from over 200,000 galaxies averaged to a slightly beigeish white.[2] The hex triplet value for cosmic latte is #FFF8E7.

holy SHIT did you see the other potential names
