I don't know whether to be amused or sad that his last public statement was to quote from a show he'd been in 50 years ago, but it seems strange.

In this particular case, neither amused nor sad, I'd think. Nimoy wasn't pathetically living in the past, he was reasonably acknowledging that the role he'd played in the show he'd been in 50 years ago was culturally important enough that it had been the determining factor in making him still a public figure 50 years later: if he hadn't played Spock, no one would be putting his last words up on Facebook. And he had a perfectly reasonably successful career after Star Trek, he wasn't lurking in a basement full of memorabilia for fifty years, it's just that nothing else he ever did had anything like the same kind of effect.

I mean, it's sort of a funny sequence of events that a TV show should have had that kind of cultural impact, but there's no question but that it did.

40. And Winston Churchill could never have become Prime Minister if he hadn't been First Lord of the Admiralty to start with.

Churchill's brief World War II appearance in the role of First Lord of the Admiralty didn't quite make as much of an impact as the Star Trek movies did for linking Takei to Sulu.

And Winston Churchill could never have become Prime Minister if he hadn't been First Lord of the Admiralty to start with.

Highly debatable. He was a fairly famous writer and MP, under-secretary for the colonies, president of the board of trade and home secretary, all before he was First Lord. The guy was on the fast track before he got anywhere near the Admiralty.

46. OK, pars pro toto. I meant that he had a substantial political career behind him. I said First Lord because it was the post he was in before he became PM and because, owing to the controversial nature of his tenure during Round One, it's the job that people whose grandparents were born in the 20th century are most likely to associate with him. He was also Chancellor of the Exchequer from 1924-29, lest we forget, in which position he arguably did more damage to the national interest than anything that happened in the Dardanelles campaign.

I keep on looking at that tweet, because it's on the front page. And come to think, why does that make life like a garden? I mean, plants last for a while at least, and perennials last for years. If the idea is just nothing is permanent, okay, but then the analogy to a garden specifically doesn't add much.

Maybe he earned the right to make analogies generally, but that doesn't justify this one. Cutting him slack for the impending death and all, which may have been distracting, I still can't call it good.

(Nimoy taken as a whole, still a great guy. But as last words go, these aren't making it into Bartlett's.)

Also, its clear that LB has never tried to grow a garden. It's a lot of fucking work. There are slugs and fungus and pests.

61. I thought it was a notably nice analogy, basically because 69 and 73. Most of the time, the fig leaves haven't come in yet, or there are so many weeds, or the wilted blooms on the jasmine look a mess, or the poppies are just not as nice as last year. But then there are moments, maybe once a year, maybe once every few years, where everything comes together beautifully, and it's those moments that you savor when you look back and think about how much you love your garden.

Not really tempted to walk, no. As I mentioned on FB, there are lots of big gaps in the ice so it isn't really possible, plus there was all the snow and wind to make stepping outside seem inadvisable in general.

As for food, we mostly ate highly processed cafeteria food (again, we were at the school), but local people there seem to eat a lot of seals and reindeer. They get whales occasionally, but that doesn't seem like a regular thing the way it is further north.

It was definitely cool to be so close to Russia, though.

After looking at your incredible picture I read up a little bit on attempts to walk across the Bering Straight in winter. Apparently it's just barely possible but incredibly dangerous because the current breaks up the ice and you have to jump from ice floe to ice floe, like the world's most dangerous game of Frogger, to get to the other side.

Also it turns out that because of wind currents etc the part of Russia you end up in is much, much colder than Alaska, with extremely high winds and some of the lowest temperatures on earth.

I am disappointed that you didn't kill a reindeer and live off of it for a week.

I bet the world has many lethal games of Frogger.

The original inhabitants of Alaska have 100 words for Frogger.

But not a single word for the water around him slowing heating up to boiling.

Frogger, frogger, all around me, but not a hot wet drink.

Reading a book, reading a book, probably not reading a book, definitely not reading a book.

As I mentioned on FB, there are lots of big gaps in the ice so it isn't really possible, plus there was all the snow and wind to make stepping outside seem inadvisable in general.

Oh I was just being silly. And then I fell asleep.

That's really good. I want to go to Canada just so I can do that. Also, I heard that they have some nice lakes.
