a little-known factoid about george takei -- he took up fencing for a while. fencers tend to have their own special brand of humor; there's a reason the phrase 'rapier-sharp wit' was coined. apparently, takei's got this sense of humor, as recently, in true fencer style, he took an attack, parried it, and followed with a blinding riposte.
i laughed so hard, my migraine that'd flattened me this morning went away. well done, mr. takei!
