You will never get these two minutes of your life back. But you will remember them forever.

Uhhhhh... Captain Kirk, just walk away; you'll be fine. LOL

The punch speed at 0:19 is almost Tyson-like.

I'm not sure how Kirk was able to duck in time. Cat-like reflexes. Amazing!

(BTW, I hate all this computer animation crap in movies and TV these days. Give me this, hand-drawn cartoons and claymation any day)

Gorn and Godzilla.

Nothing beats men in rubber lizard costumes.

I didn't know Captain Kirk fought Nancy Pelosi?

Crazy!

I think that they were having sex. There is penetration at about 0:45.

Ah. Vasquez Rocks. At the time this was filmed, they were way out in the boonies, north of LA. Now, of course, they are surrounded by housing tracts ... which are slowly disintegrating and getting swallowed by the relentless sands and wind.

These days, the Rocks are mostly used for porno shoots - Vivid did a big 5-disc set out there a couple years ago that they billed as "The Most Expensive Porno Ever Filmed."

Whoever was stuck in that rubber suit under that hot desert sun was not paid enough, I can tellya...

So it's a metaphore, right?

Smaller entity (J6P) escapes the clutches of the larger entity (Govt.) that is clearly superior in size and strength?

Sorry, won't happen. The dye has been cast. It's not in the script.

two thoughts ....

"I know! You construct a weapon. Look around, can you form some sort of rudimentary lathe?"

I saw the Gorn on UFC the other night. Kind of a Brazilian Jujitzu type of fighter ...

The lizard man sounds like he was a heavy smoker. I'll bet he coughed up some serious phlegm at the end.

He's got nothing on Bush.

Supposedly completely unaware of what was coming, how in the world could he be so fast?

Time to reminisce about my favorite Star Trek moments.

They did a take off on Sat Night Live of that Star Trek episode where Kirk gives Uhura a lip lock towards the end.(Uhura is the black communication officer for you non-Trekers, and anybody else living under a rock for the last fourty years. God! has it been that long?)

At the end of the SNL skit, after the kiss, one of the players looks at the camera and says: "Well, we just lost Mississippi!"

Loved it!

My favorite episode on Star Trek:

Where Frank Gorshin plays a member of an alien race who is black on one side and white on the other, his opponent being equally divided in color, but on different sides ("white righters" replacing the word nigger.) By the end, both sub-species have destroyed each other, with only the two left alive on their devastated home planet, with only their hate.

A good one on Star Trek: The Next Generation was the episode where the race of beings were all hermaphrodites and being "straight" was the worst crime on their planet.

My bible-banging neighbor pitched a fit about that one, something about the whole race being damned to hell. He refused to grasp the fact that they weren't human beings and their alien species were born that way so I just let him rant. His kids couldn't watch ST after that.

Amazing how the Star Trek franchise was able to take pot shots at hate, prejudice, and hypocrisy long before anyone else dared to.

No no, the lizard is China, the US is Kirk and the rocks are their currencies. Or is it vicey versy?

This clip is craptacular, thanks for posting it Keef. I've never met you, but you are one of my fave people in the world.

Oh no, not so amazing when you realize it was the glorious 60's, a time of love and peace, anti-war, pro-freedom, a wonderful time for tolerance and open-mindedness. Those were the formative years of the current liberal movement. The Reagan years tried to toss a wet blanket on it but were really just a temporary set-back. The Obama generation has swung the pendulum back. Hope lives.

Ben Stiller's character is seen watching this clip on his ipod in "Tropic Thunder". I laughed then, and I laugh now.
