Random Bits

The term "slash" for gay fan fiction is derived from some of the first ones written: Kirk/Spock.
I didn't think the people who wrote it had any factual basis for it, until now... I don't remember this scene, but it's certainly slashy!


It's from the "Shore Leave" episode.

Thanks to witling for pointing it out.




The Kevin Smith/Southwest situation.
The girl Kevin was sitting next to on his flight home got in contact with him, and talks to him on SModcast HERE. The way she was also treated by Southwest is just shameful. The Southwest employees need some serious Customer Service training.
Kevin also writes more about the experience and how it was handled HERE. Gotta love the screenshots that show how SWA went into the original "apology" and changed some of the wording, with no note or citation of the change. Real professional.
The third paragraph where they originally threw the blame on the pilot:
"Our pilots are responsible for the Safety and comfort of all Customers on the aircraft and therefore, made a judgment call that Mr. Smith needed more than one seat to complete his flight."
Was changed to:
"We are responsible for the Safety and comfort of all Customers on the aircraft and therefore, we made a judgment call that Mr. Smith needed more than one seat to complete his flight."
I assume this is because the second blog they posted admitted that the pilot wasn't responsible, which therefore made the first one a lie. And we all know that when caught in a lie the ethical thing to do is retroactively change it.




An awesome article about Roger Ebert and how he is living with his cancer, and the results of his cancer treatments HERE




Leo LaPorte on TwitTV with the folks who did the "Look at me, look at him" Old Spice commercial. CGI or not?






And last, but not least, a Tweet that amused me today from @mklopez: In Holland, physically disabled people can get money from govt to be used to pay for sex. To do: 1) Move to Holland. 2) Chop off one foot.
