Friday Night Open Thread

For the 11th and final time, I’m taking up Friday night with an episode from Star Trek Continues.

The group of actors, some you’ve seen before and some you haven’t, who are fans of Star Trek began creating original episodes that would cover the fourth and fifth year of the “five year mission.” They planned to do 13, but CBS dictated they cease. CBS allowed them to finish he episodes they had scripted and cast, meaning they ended up with 11 episodes.

From just down the road in Kingsland, Georgia, they bought a warehouse, built permanent sets, and from that town of 16,000 residents that boasts both a Burger King and a Weener King, they created the show. So, for the last time, here’s an episode of Star Trek Continues.

For Anyone Who Believes That Magnet Patches Can Do Anything More Than Be a Placebo

[Monster magnet meets blood…] (Viewer #)

I admit to WAY overestimating how much iron is in blood. I had imagined chunks of rust like the kind that fall off my ’87 Ford Ranger.

I Had No Idea You Could Do This With Neodymium Magnets

[Modeling a Gas With Magnets] (Viewer #960,337)

He gets distracted and loses his narrative in a couple places, but overall pretty interesting.

The show’s over at 10:40, unless you’re an obsessive Seamonkies fan.
