  1. I did The Elements song for my high school talent show some…gah…25 years ago, and surprisingly, I still remember it. I wasn’t as well-known, but at least I didn’t mess it up (he didn’t get it right even when he corrected himself). Still, always good to get science out there in popular culture.

  3. @Mark Hall: I was thinking more of how the Holodeck, what would be the greatest accomplisment in simulating reality, is mostly used for keeping a Vulcan’s libido in check during Pon Farr or living out Mickey Spillane novels. Heck, in DS9 they’re pretty much used as virtual brothels. This is why I felt so much sympathy for Rom, Quark’s brother…because he likely had to clean those holosuite booths *shiver*.
