You too can be wet and nerdy with Star Trek wetsuits

Star Trek wetsuitYou thought the waffles weren't enough? Now it's possible for deep sea divers to get their geek on with these Star Trek wetsuits available at Roddenberry.com. Star Trek creator Gene Roddenberry was pretty good as the whole "selling out" thing upon the success of the series, so it's likely he would have approved of these items. Possibly he would have even incorporated them into the show.

If you see anyone wearing these wetsuits, then you can at least conclude that they're fairly wealthy nerds given the $470 price tag. If they have the guts to wear them in the first place then they're doing so well that they don't care what other people think. No doubt if this product is successful, wetsuit versions for Star Trek: The Next Generation will be released at some point in the future.

The red one should come with a warning label. "If you wear this suit, there is a higher chance of getting eaten by a shark, drowning or accidental harpooning."

Model Niki Taylor sues E!

NIki TaylorFormer supermodel Niki Taylor has sued E! Entertainment Television for "intentional infliction of emotional distress" with its recent Boulevard of Broken Dreams profile of the model's career and near-fatal 2001 car accident. According to Taylor and her lawyers, E! secured Taylor's involvement in the profile by telling her that the show would focus on her current professional endeavors - including a fragrance and clothing line. Boulevard, of course, did no such thing. The show's tagline is, after all, "In a place between heaven and Hollywood, dreams turn tragic and fame goes sour fast."

The complaint filed by Taylor's lawyers reads that E! "neglected their journalistic obligations to report truthfully and accurately." E! replied that they weren't aware that "journalism" had any attendant "obligations." The network's spokesperson issued a statement saying, "We're E! Entertainment Television, not E! Stewards of Responsible Media Television." Just kidding. E! has yet to go on record regarding the suit.

Everybody Hates Chris: Everybody Hates Superstition

everybody Hates chris(S02E09) It seems the shows I review have been somewhat light in the plot department this week. Sunday's episode of The Simpsons felt like it could have been stronger, and this most recent episode of Everybody Hates Chris centered around Chris and a pair of ugly (but lucky) socks.
