Road Cycling “It is by riding a bicycle that you learn the contours of a country best, since you have to sweat up the hills and coast down them. Thus you remember them as they actually are, while in a motor car only a high hill impresses you, and you have no such accurate remembrance of country you have driven through as you gain by riding a bicycle.” -- Ernest Hemingway

I hate the Star Trek face palms on here.

I just saw another Star Trek face palm on another thread.

It bothers me because I have always considered Star Trek fans to be maladusted social misfits. The kind who live in their mother's basement till their mid-30's, then teach their kid to speak some made up language. So does my assocation with Star Trek fans via BF also make me a nerd?

I am now offering my half-hearted apologies to anyone I've offended.

And what segment of the population would you presume spends time posting messages to strangers on a message board?

Hmmm, maybe OP is trolling for all of the Star Trek face palms in one thread.

I love the Star Trek. All of it. In fact, I had no interest in the Super Bowl this year, so I watched Star Trek Voyager reruns. I wanted to be Captain Kirk when I was growing up and thought he could have kicked Han Solo's ass (cue Chewbacca facepalm).

Now if it were the Stanley Cup, forget it. Trek comes in last there. Yes, I own my house, and yes I have children. We're not all geeks, and if we are, so what?

There is a Tommy Lee Jones facepalm that I cannot post because of forum guidelines. Google it, you'll see my intent.

More public apologies?? Geez.

How about a new rule: BF means never having to say you're sorry.
