This is a hilarious video William Shatner doing what he does best: overacting to the point of silliness [5:00]


About GrrlScientist

grrlscientist is the pseudonym of an evolutionary biologist and ornithologist who writes about evolution, ethology, and ecology, especially in birds. After earning a degree in microbiology (thesis focus: virology) and working at the Fred Hutchinson Cancer Research Center in Seattle, she earned her PhD in zoology from the University of Washington in Seattle, where she studied the molecular correlates of testosterone and behaviour in white-crowned sparrows. She then worked a Chapman Postdoctoral Fellow at the American Museum of Natural History in New York City, where she studied the speciation and distribution of lories and other parrots throughout the South Pacific Islands. A discarded scientist, she returned to her roots: writing. Formerly hosted by The Guardian (UK), she now writes about science for Forbes and for the non-profit think tank, the Evolution Institute and she writes podcasts for BirdNote Radio. An avid lifelong birder and aviculturist, she lives with a flock of songbirds and parrots somewhere in Germany.

    Personally, I think William Shatner’s rendition is superior to the original.

  3. stay tuned everyone, because tomorrow morning, i shall launch a counter-attack against that evil scientist who so boldly resides across the pond in the land of my fathers (finland).

    Oh Gods, they don’t have his version of Once More Into the Breach, Dear Friends on YouTube, do they?

    Hey Grrl, I was trying to comment on your post “Science Blogs can Advance the Academic Process” which I linked to from FriendFeed, but when I post the comment the Borg tells me the post doesn’t exist, and moreover, if I refresh your blog I don’t see it in the post stream. Did you delete it?
