Trekkies had a lot to celebrate during the Academy Awards.

Captain Kirk went back in time to 2013 to help Seth McFarlane clean up his act.

The Captain spent 20 minutes giving Seth tips for the show which included several classic song and dance numbers with Seth and other stars.

A special tribute to James Bond movies was well received.

By the end of the night, the big winners were “Life of Pi”, “Argo”, Daniel Day-Lewis and Jennifer Lawrence.

So Trekkies and Engineers everywhere were celebrating what they have known all along: the importance of Pi.

A special appearance by Michelle Obama and her bangs to announce the Best Picture, “Argo”, was also smashing.

Death To Identity Thief

No I am not talking about the movie.  But this will give you a run for your money.

Have you noticed that the keywords “death” and “dead” are the most popular?

At first I thought it was part of a “goth” or “freddy” or maybe “scissorhand” fetish for the horror movie genre.  You know.  Just like the Star Trek has Trekkies, I thought these were Deathies.

But then at 3 AM in the middle of the night I sat up in bed and realized, these are hackers. They are looking for obituaries.  And why would they do that?  To find identities to steal! 

How many people are going to realize that their identity was stolen if they are dead?

Let me put this another way.  Which is the least likely demographic to object and retaliate for identity theft?  Right.  Dead people.

This has been a community service announcement.

Oh, by the way, the Identity Thief movie is pretty good.
