    THIS IS EXACTLY WHAT YOU WOULD HEAR IN CASE OF A NUCLEAR ATTACK 

    Many countries have systems that allow them to speak to as many people as possible in case of something catastrophic. 

    The United States has the Emergency Alert System. When triggered, the system interrupts all T.V and radio systems to speak. 

    This is what it sounds like.

    The most creepiest and terrifying noise and voices ever.

    Of course no one watches TV or listens to the radio anymore.

    The irrepressible Gene Kelly in Xanadu (1980)

    I don’t even know what to say except Gene is dancing between a woman’s legs ….discuss

    This film looks horribly trippy and I probably shouldn’t watch it whilst drunk.  Or I should.

    Discuss.

    That’s how you make an entrance!

Oh damn that looks awesome.
I’ve got a Oberon in my hands right now but wow.
I do like a good porter every once in awhile!

Pipeline Porter is amazing.

    Studies show that women apologize more than men, often for perfectly reasonable acts like, you know, taking up space. 

    So watch this Pantene commercial here to inspire you to stop saying sorry for no reason. 

    That last women had nothing to apologize about. I’m always stealing the blankets and my wife doesn’t put up with that crap either.

    but guys, you realize Morgan Freeman had to read those lines

    …without laughing.

    LOOK AT THE GUY HOLDING THE MICROPHONE

    This post doesn’t show up on my dash enough.

    Agreed, can you believe there was a time when Morgan Freeman was a supporting actor for boring white guys.

    I noticed how awkward Riker gets into a chair on a rerun once and didn’t realize it happened nearly every episode.

    You get on that chair, Riker. You get on it good.

    it was kind of a joke on the set because Frakes is really tall and the set designers made all the chair backs really low — the average chair back isn’t below crotch level even on tall people

    this was referred to as the Riker Maneuver. (Not to be confused with the Picard Maneuver, which was tugging the uniform shirt down upon getting out of a chair because they rode up.)

    Actually, Jonathan Frakes suffered a back injury as a furniture mover, so he had to work around that as best as he could. Having to do multiple takes of him sitting down “normally” would have aggravated it and might’ve made it unbearable. Same with standing for long periods of time, leading to the Riker Lean, where he’d rest on whatever was nearby to help take the weight off his feet.

    This was discussed in a post on Reddit

    That’s Wil Wheaton replying to confirm that it’s correct.

    Also, the Picard maneuver was a behind-the-scenes joke for sure, and when Data was acting captain in one episode later in the series he tugged down on the shirt after giving Worf orders in an imitation of Picard’s habit (and one which I picked up with one of my jackets due to its own tendency to ride up).

    But there is an actual Picard maneuver in Star Trek, and it’s pretty nifty, using warp speed to make it seem like there are two ships instead of just one, confusing the enemy. Read more about it at Memory Alpha, it’s cool as hell.

    Back injuries are no fun. I actually thought this was a kind of space swagger thing. Ironic really, because I have a hip injury and find myself doing similar things to avoid discomfort.
