This is my brain on Saturdays.

Watched a little bit of Star Trek this weekend. Perhaps I was stoned, but I was struck by this profound, perhaps quintessential, Spock quote. From Star Trek V: The Final Frontier (yeah I know, certainly not the best story line but whatever):
Spock’s mom: Spock, does the good of the many out weigh the good of the one?
Spock: I would accept that as an axiom.
He would accept that as an axiom. Now that is fucking hilarious, right? And here is where I should also provide support from McCoy: “Goddammit!”
Ok and now that I’ve looked it up to get it just right, one last quote because this is some funny shit. This is the scene when Kirk, McCoy, and Spock are camping out, just before sleeping and after a round of Row, Row, Row Your Boat:
Kirk: We’re on leave, you can call me Jim.
Kirk: Yes, Spock?
Spock: Life…is not a dream.
Kirk: Go to sleep, Spock.
This scares the shit out of me. Yeah, that’s chocolate on her cheek just in case you were wondering.
So today’s sad story about the malfunctioning French breast implants kinda gets in my craw. And, you know, industrial-grade silicone contained in a bag in the body is one thing, but when it leaks out into the system, that’s entirely another. What I still can’t figure out, and I’ve given it some thought, is why on earth would someone actually think its cool to put bags of silicone in their boobs in the first place. Sure, they didn’t know it was the bad silicone, right? Perhaps the nice, healthy silicone would have been just peachy had it leaked out. Look, I’m not ragging on anyone, and I have friends who have done this to themselves, but I sure don’t get it. And this “I’m doing it for me, to feel good about myself” line is complete bullshit because I can guarantee you that if there were no men on this earth we would all be completely happy with ourselves. Symbol of femininity, my Ass (hey, now there’s a curve you can be proud of; no one ever put silicone in their butts [did they? oh lord I bet they have])!
P.S. Just a side note: I’m completely, 100 percent, for it when called-for on a serious medical level (cancer, injury, etc.).
