William Shatner comes to speak at the University of Alabama.
Admission: Free for students, $5.00 for anyone else.
I barely got there in time, I stood against the wall drinking a Frappuccino.
Shatner's main points were
I've never used the Internet! I have no idea what priceline.com is, even though I do their commercials!I couldn't get the GPS to work, and when it did work, I didn't like it!I hate the electonic voice on the train at the Atlanta Airport
They couldn't get the RF Mic to work!!Technology seems to be an "evil demon" that's going to destroy us all.I'm not really Captain Kirk so don't ask me stupid trekkie questions!I have several amusing stories about acting that I will tell when someone asks me a question about my most meaningful experience.I'm going to dodge a question about Rescue 911 by telling an amusing story about a skunk (Cell phone call to 911: "I'm William Shatner, and I stink!" "Oh, not that prank again" ::click::)
- Why does it say (weird nasal immitation of computer voice) "please step away from the doors as they are closing"
- Why can't it say "GET AWAY FROW THE FUCKING DOOR!"
