Dark Bilious Vapors

But how could I deny that I possess these hands and this body, and withal escape being classed with persons in a state of insanity, whose brains are so disordered and clouded by dark bilious vapors....

11/08/2005: From the "For those with more money than sense..." department....

You have but a week to go until the release of [drumroll]:

The Ultimate Star Trek Collection MSRP: $3908.99, though Amazon.com will let you have it for a mere $2500.00. And what do you get for that pile of simoleons? 212 DVD discs covering all of the following material:

  • Star Trek The Original Series: The Complete Seasons 1-3
  • Star Trek The Next Generation: The Complete Seasons 1-7
  • Star Trek Deep Space Nine: The Complete Seasons 1-7
  • Star Trek Voyager: The Complete Seasons 1-7
  • Star Trek Enterprise: The Complete Seasons 1-4
  • Star Trek: The Motion Picture
  • Star Trek: The Wrath of Khan
  • Star Trek III: The Search for Spock
  • Star Trek IV: The Voyage Home
  • Star Trek V: The Final Frontier
  • Star Trek VI: The Undiscovered Country
  • Star Trek: Generations
  • Star Trek: First Contact
  • Star Trek: Insurrection
  • Star Trek: Nemesis
Not only for those with more money than sense, but also for those with a hell of a lot of time on their hands. If I had the time and inclination, I'd total up the time it'd take to watch all those shows and movies (forget about all the commentary tracks, interviews, documentaries, deleted scenes, pictures, storyboards..... You get the picture).

If I actually used my Amazon wish list as a way of letting people know what I want them to buy me (I use it more as a web-based memo pad, parking the Amazon entries of books, CDs and DVDs that I want to buy when I have a few bucks to spare on frivolity), I'd consider putting this on the wish list and seeing if there really was anyone foolish enough to buy it for me (I know better than that.... Hell, I'd feel happy if someone bought me The Complete Calvin and Hobbes, which comes in (at less than a C-note, at Amazon prices) at a mere 4% of the price of The Ultimate Star Trek Collection).

Dad? You listening?
