Just the thing to start your day:

Mind, this all started over a non-moving “violation.” The lady had a tail light out or some such.

    George Taylor: And that completes my final report until we reach touchdown. We’re now on full automatic, in the hands of the computers. I have tucked my crew in for the long sleep and I’ll be joining them soon. In less than an hour, we’ll finish our sixth month out of Cape Kennedy. Six months in deep space – by our time, that is. According to Dr. Haslein’s theory of time, in a vehicle travelling nearly the speed of light, the Earth has aged nearly 700 years since we left it, while we’ve aged hardly at all. Maybe so. This much is probably true – the men who sent us on this journey are long since dead and gone. You who are reading me now are a different breed – I hope a better one. I leave the 20th century with no regrets. But one more thing – if anybody’s listening, that is. Nothing scientific. It’s purely personal. But seen from out here everything seems different. Time bends. Space is boundless. It squashes a man’s ego. I feel lonely. That’s about it. Tell me, though. Does man, that marvel of the universe, that glorious paradox who sent me to the stars, still make war against his brother? Keep his neighbor’s children starving?

    George Taylor: Imagine me needing someone. Back on Earth I never did. Oh, there were women. Lots of women. Lots of love-making but no love. You see, that was the kind of world we’d made. So I left, because there was no one to hold me there.

    Cornelius: [reading from the sacred scrolls of the apes] Beware the beast Man, for he is the Devil’s pawn. Alone among God’s primates, he kills for sport or lust or greed. Yea, he will murder his brother to possess his brother’s land. Let him not breed in great numbers, for he will make a desert of his home and yours. Shun him; drive him back into his jungle lair, for he is the harbinger of death.

    Dr. Zaius: Dr. Zira, I must caution you. Experimental brain surgery on these creatures is one thing, and I’m all in favor of it. But your behavior studies are another matter. To suggest that we can learn anything about the simian nature from a study of man is sheer nonsense. Why, man is a nuisance. He eats up his food supply in the forest, then migrates to our green belts and ravages our crops. The sooner he is exterminated, the better. It’s a question of simian survival.

    Dr. Zaius: I see you’ve brought the female of your species. I didn’t realize that man could be monogamous.
    George Taylor: On this planet, it’s easy.

  2. “they grew up in the barn” – You got that right, Eightsouthman.

    The idiot ex-friends I had who became cops were exactly of that manner.
    To a T.

    [Ok, yeah I was weak to have even called them friends in the first place. On the plus side, I know them well, and Eightsouthman is exactly right.]

    Anyway, this video of the cop breaking the glass, doesn’t he seem to be a zombie?

    Doesn’t this cop fit into just about every zombie film there ever was?

  3. These people are supposed to be “adults” but they act as if they grew up in the barn, absolutely no concern for anything or anyone. We can thank their support system. In situations like this, you have what you’ll allow.

  4. Officer NotSoFriendly was (probably) just annoyed every command was not immediately obeyed without any discussion.

    He overreacted, but probably nothing will happen to him.

    I do not think his actions reflect well on him or his department.

    • Of course nothing will happen to him. This sort of behavior is so common among UCF cops, you’d think it to be standard procedure.

      Hell, a number of years ago, one of those clowns tried to ticket a UCF Physical Plant worker for a tail light being out on the UCF maintenance van he was driving!

      I’d wager that more than a few of them couldn’t hack it as a student at UCF so they decided to get a job there instead. Since they’re technically state police, the prime requirement for employment is the ability to follow orders and keep their mouth shut.
