This is a metatalk thread for those who wish to discuss issues of health and obesity rather than derailing the thread about Leonard Nimoy's new photography book.

Hey, nerd, there's a showing of Deep Space 9 on television. Now leave me alone with Kirk and the Kool Enterprise Krew.

Actually...

"Trekkie" is the proper term for fans of the original series.

"Trekker" is specifically for people who are fans of the programming from the 1990s, including STNG, DS9 & Voyager.

Personally I'm a Roddenberry fan. I liked Star Trek up until he passed away and Berman assumed full control with no kibitzing from the Great Bird of the Galaxy. Soon after Spock's return in Unification, things started going downhill...

Fans of the whole franchise are dubbed "Star Trek Fans."

Being a nerd, and being any of the above, are largely unrelated to one another.

From the thread we're supposed to be using for Nimoy and photography talk but people are still talking about health issues over there. Hmph.

Autarky, "If you consume fewer, you will lose weight. Not a lot of science."

Not true. All it does is confuse the metabolism. If you consume less calories than your body is accustomed, the body reacts by storing fat. If the body detects it may be starved soon, it will squirrel away what it can for the pending lean times, so dieting alone is not sufficient for losing weight.

Dieting is much more complex than most anyone cares to admit, hence all the confusion and the multiple diets and all the overweight people in the world continuing to gain weight and not understanding why. It's cuz science is still trying to figure out why.

everichon: "and who thought Troi was hotter than Yar"

Bev was hotter than both Yar & Troi put together. Of course, in her prime, Uhura's gravity-defying frame outshined the lot of them.

Maybe we should just make one of these threads by default for every post that has anything at all to do with obesity.

That sounds sarcastic, but maybe it's a good idea. I'm so sick of how those threads get derailed. And, by the way, they're not generally derailed by people defending obesity, they're usually derailed by someone who feels the need to point out in very blunt terms that obesity is a Very Bad Thing. You know, just in case someone, somewhere, hasn't heard that before.

“so as far as I can tell the debate/discussion about the two is right at home on the blue.”

Maybe. But it's really tiresome and it is getting in the way of simply talking about the photographs. Does it have something to do with it? Sure. In fact, very much so. But people here can't talk about the subject reasonably and without rancor. So it ruins every thread in which it appears.

IIRC she was the only TNG female regular who wasn't a mommy figure. I'd stopped watching by that point as nausea had long since trumped SF fandom, so I get that secondhand. Troi? Official ship's mommy; nonthreatening senstive babe with big nourishing boobs who wants to help you with your feelings. Whoopi? The same but for Picard alone, and without the babishness. Doctor Mom? Mom-squared, and not-babe: the kind of woman other women think men ought to think is pretty. Tasha Yar? Not a mom, and worse, had problems of her own and no time for yours, so they killed her almost immediately.

Lots of obese girls are hot. Hell, some of them are super-hot - the round face, the full lips, the large, in-charge, immpossible-to-ignore plump posterior. The problem is that their beauty has a shorter half-life than slimmer girls. So what looks *hot* at 25 may look a little scary at 35.

Just to let you know: I'm going to post a Metatalk thread for those who wish to argue about whose genitalia is larger rather than derailing the Metafilter thread (which I haven't yet posted) for those who wish to argue about who is the hottest female cast member of a Star Trek episode rather than derailing the thread for those who wish to discuss issues of health and obesity rather than derailing the thread about Leonard Nimoy's new photography book.

The very first link in that post asks whether Spock has joined the Fat Acceptance Movement. Surely that makes the discussion of the Fat Acceptance Movement a legitimate topic in that thread?

Not that I've got any views on the topic one way or another, but it hardly seems to me to be a derail if it's a major component of one of the linked articles.

Also, I'm not scared of mods either. I've posted a picture of an enormous dick in my profile. A dick that I know Mr. President Dr. Steve Elvis America will just love...

But are you scared of rockers?

We are the mods, we are the mods, we are, we are, we are the mods.

My expert (lesbian) opinion:

Deanna Troi > Uhura > Ro Laren
That is all, no one else even rates.

However, my partner disagrees. She would say
Data > Beverly Crusher

Some nights I'm drifting off to sleep when I feel Uhura's nails rake down my spine and tear into my buttocks; she licks me and I taste my blood as she transforms into a leopard and we roll around my cabin, upsetting glasses of blue liquid and shelves of intergalactic curios, most of them double-headed or robotically enhanced or ancient and powerful. Her claws gouge the skin of my lower back the insides of my knees as we strain to overmaster one another, until I get the upper hand and her spine rattles and arcs, the fur along her back straightens and stinks, and I take my turn at rending her with my inadequate human nails, from the sides of her powerful hind legs to the thick purchase behind her ears, enough to grab and pull with both hands.

Picard walks in, to howling and kicking and blood frenzy, the room a tornado, the smell tangy and fetid and metal, Uhura and I still knotted and vicious, gnawing at ears and the rug and frantic with need. Picard is a Bengal tiger, and his chuffing draws our eyes while our bodies, lost to nature, argue on.

He pounces and I feel his weight and I'm in the middle of a cat sandwich, oily wet fur all around, warm and painful and bloody and our knots chain with great heat and pressure. I'm thrown around a room but locked in place, bruised and bleeding and enveloped by frightening beasts of the jungle, deeply entwined in animal lust and unnatural nature. It's perfect.

When I wake up, I find I've managed to fit my entire left hand into my asshole without waking up or getting shit under my nails.

Here's my opinion on everything:
For: health, Ro Laren, 'Trekkies', jonmc's dick, MrPresidentblah's dick, breezeway stories, rockers.
Agin': Obesity, the Crusher clan, 'Trekkers', hearing any more about jonmc's dick, hearing any more about Mr.Presidentblah's dick, mods.

For the record, I never mentioned my dick. It speaks for itself.

And sometimes, my friend, it speaks for you.

It's only a dime folks -- one thin dime -- just one tenth of a dollar! Come on in and see jonmc the snake dancer!

Is it real?

My dick is extraordinary. It's been sighted several times in a loch in Scotland.

Not the whole thing, though. Just three humps and a snakelike head.

Thanks, I'll be here all week. Be sure to tip the waitstaff.

"Trekkie" is the proper term for fans of the original series.

"Trekker" is specifically for people who are fans of the programming from the 1990s, including STNG, DS9 & Voyager.


Awesome. Can we work out "Bimmer" vs "Beemer" now?
