The Ballad of Bilbo Baggins

Nerd Pride! Christie's Auction House has gathered together the world's largest collection of Star Trek-related trinkets (Captain Kirk's chair! sorta) and is putting them up for auction to the highest bidder.

Do as I say, not as I do.
(German finance minister tells people how to spend their money)

Woman beaten up by mannequin?

Bright, shiny objects:

Speaking of weird things associated with Star Trek
(... I'm speechless...)

Is it Friday?
(Now you can check.)

And finally:

After researching this one, my faith in humanity has been shaken. I will now go hide. After clicking on the links, you'll understand why.
