Spock drops the 'f bomb';

Last edited Sun Jun 16, 2013, 01:04 PM - Edit history (1)

Which IS bleeped out naturally (it's part of a commercial).

http://io9.com/old-spock-battles-new-spock-in-the-greatest-car-commerc-493836696

The premise is a battle between the old (Nimoy) and the new (Zachary Quinto) Nimoy featured in a Volvo commercial.

As you can imagine there's several references to the show, all done very well.

MUCH funnier than 'the Darth Vader kid'!

It's an Audi commercial!!!!!!!!!!!

My bad.

4. Audi for crying out loud

Not Volvo. They don't do sexy or poignant, just safe and boxy.

7. Who are the economic Jedi of the future

That was one of the best commercials that perpetrated the culture. As I said many times the commercials of today are two fold to sell the product and generate a culture. Typified by Star trek stuff the next generation and wars in the space with the modern Seth, flanked by death Vader. Actually America engineering is very elusive, latent and at an economic advantage.

It is not hard to conceive the banking system makes adjustments for the citizen to buy foreign made cars to reveal and reverse engineer very extraordinary concepts after Europe and Asian engineers do it.

Moving away from fossil fuel is the future, the trend, but the engineering is competitive to bankers.

If someone invented a way to manipulate gravity the whole of the fossil fuel system would be turned on its head, likewise the security market would go hooey. However bound it is to happen bank loans, they would turn into a new market.


Americans understand the new economy

It can be made for the middle class, by the Limbaugh definition the economy worldwide has nothing to do with the term liberal or conservative. The economy has to do with the terms middle class and the poor. The money market has been secret and hardwire for the very few for centuries. All this exploiting through the mainstream media by refinance, when it is likely in the new market refinancing could be very rare in bankruptcies or than bailouts. It can be an extremely cool way to be an advantage for the middle class, and the poor.

Actually the American banking system is nothing more than what many call the Jekyll Island agreement done in secret. Moreover the agreement was to create what is commonly known as the Federal Reserve. Yes, the Federal Reserve was a secret Banking (or bilking) system designed by the rich exactly one hundred years ago on Jekyll Island off the coast of Georgia in 1913. All America has to do is vote for a new banking system. Simple, it can be changed by the voting process, it is not a math problem it is a simple reason in the vote. It is likely why the Republican controlled congress does not want a new banking system, because changing it would make it far too fair and reasonable for the middle class and the poor.

The trend is to scrap the Gaussian amortization home loan business approach and have a flat interest fee approach to home ownership. The results would be a shorter time to attain ownership. Indexed into a new way to keep interest deductions like with new proposals form home ownership.

Besides a real fair asset valued market in the capitalist system would spur stability and take the bubble bang out of failure in the real free market equation. Plus add to certainty with confidence in the system.

A few words for the stock market, the routine appearance of the stock market is corrupt as hell. Ladies and Gentleman of America in this new era of business 24/7 should mean a free market open 24/7. Short selling should be obvious.

A market not governed by a single street like Wall Street. The free market in America should be on every street. America we do not need a bell to start the trading or end the trading there should be honest trading with integrity all the time without being too big to fail.


What does too big to fail for economic reasons really mean anyway?

Is that the math in calculus many learn in College that goes to infinity. The infinity an average American has no concept of. Infinity a size so big it is beyond imagination. A number so big it cannot be resolved if breached in our life time. A number so big America and the world will be destroyed if not saved by tax dollars. A number so big it will ruin mankind. Actually it sounds like it cannot fail.

Very extraordinary indeed, too big to fail seems to express the idea that it cannot fail. What is it anyway? What is the “IT” in too big to fail? Is it the air we breathe? Or, the food we eat? The energy we need? The shelter Americans need? The education we need to keep us smart? The army we need to keep us free? The Congress we need to govern America?

Obviously it is the economy needed to protect the wealthy few. There are far too many in congress corrupt far too many connected to profiteering to fail to convict and jail.

Perhaps America has created an economic corrupt government with an endless supply of weird criminals that will never fail to profiteer and destroy our government. Yes that is too big to fail.

9. I love the new Star Trek and I think Quinto is channeling Nimoy in his performance.

10. It's cute, but it's plodding

The commercial could have started with Nimoy pulling into the lot with Quinto already there, and nothing would have been lost except the cutesy Bilbo song.

It's not one that bears multiple viewings IMO.

13. Audi, not Volvo

Otherwise, great commercial. Should have had George Takei drive the auto car at the end.
