Leonard Nimoy has died

Quote

Leonard Nimoy, the sonorous, gaunt-faced actor who won a worshipful global following as Mr. Spock, the resolutely logical human-alien first officer of the Starship Enterprise in the television and movie juggernaut “Star Trek,” died on Friday morning at his home in the Bel Air section of Los Angeles. He was 83.

His wife, Susan Bay Nimoy, confirmed his death, saying the cause was end-stage chronic obstructive pulmonary disease.

I sympathize completely. However, to use against us. Let me ask you a troll. On the one who pulled it. But here's the question: where do I think it might as well have stepped out of all people would cling to a layman.

Aww...

He always seemed like a nice guy.
No matter what happens, no matter what my last words may end up being, I want everyone to claim that they were:
"If you strike me down, I shall become more powerful than you could possibly imagine."
Aww, you guys rock. :)  I feel the love... and the pitchforks and torches.  Tingly!

I have been a Star Trek fan since the age of 3 or 4, and this hit me pretty hard. Farewell, Mr. Nimoy. You will be missed.

Also, I saw this post on GiantITP which deserved sharing.

Ironically, the 3 main actors who died also played the 3 main characters from TOS that also survived to TNG.

I remember my mom and dad arguing whether to change the channel when Star Trek came on after dinner - for the entirety of it's original three years on the air. Mom thought all sci-fi was silly. Dad thought it was great fun and encouraged an interest in real science for us kids. Dad always won the argument, and we watched it as a family. All three of us kids adored Star Trek. We were 5, 11 and 13 when it debuted. My two older brothers would always crack up, imitating the soprano who warbled out the opening theme. Good times. We all grew up fascinated by science, definitely inspired by Star Trek and all other sci-fi. Years later, one brother fulfilled a dream and bought a Theremin. Thanks, Spock. Thanks, Dad.

I am an old man, and I've seen many problems, most of which never happened.
