Rockin' your world!
Yes, I'm one of the biggest geeks in the building, and I am more than proud of it! Paul Kelly is the only person in contention for the title of "Nerd King". Anyway, I figured I would share some of my nerdness. If you have read any of my profile, you'll know that I'm a huge sci-fi geek including Star Trek, Battlestar Galactica, Eureka and Warehouse 13 just to name a few.
Star Trek is awesome in the sense that all things contained within the series are in some way plausible to become reality. Remember the flip phone craze? You can thank Star Trek for inspiring the designers to create such a device. Currently, scientists are working on a real-world transporter device! You've seen Starfleet personnel beam from massive starships to the foreign lands of alien planets for many years. Soon, you may have the opportunity to be materialized from one city to another on the other side of Earth! Seriously! Don't believe me? Here's the article.
The great starships of Star Trek have also inspired many books displaying the layout and how they work in the Star Trek Universe. The book displayed below is one of the latest editions to give a glimpse into the inner-workings of the famous starships you may have seen for many years. Take a look as to where the Jeffries Tubes run, EPS conduits and secondary backups! You never know when you may need to reroute primary weapons through the external EPS relays to increase the output of the deflector dish! Seriously. I hope this will be a path to the future so we are able to explore the universe. /End nerdness.
Also, I will be filling in for Pat Mars next week (Sept. 19-23) on the BigDogz morning show. Be sure to tune in 6-10 am each day to hear what sort of shenanigans Bill Tanner and I get ourselves into. Lots of winning, lots of geek talk (mostly weather-related) and probably a plethora of laughter.
