Flossy faithful Becca has sent in a rather crackerjack link this week - for fellow fans of Star Trek and Monty Python, you have indeed reached your Holy Grail of Geekdom: a mashup of the two.

Best video of the week here, in my opinion: Little Kid Shows How to Parallel Park. 'Nuff said. This kid is awesome.

Here in the South we often (and unfortunately) believe that just about anything can be fried and remain tasty (and usually we're right). I'd like to extend that maxim to chocolate as well - and here are 8 curious chocolate-covered creations to start off with!
*
Photoshop (v.) - to make something or someone look better / more appealing. But what about when it results instead in an epic fail? This time I'm not talking about bad celebrity photoshopping, but just really horrendous "what were they thinking?" mistakes - 12 of them, in fact.
*
11 Cassette and Film Tape Artworks. A local shout out - she's from Atlanta!
*
For those of us who have been on Facebook since its inception (I know, it's not a boast, trust me), there's a tendency to acquire a lot of friend "clutter." So how do you deal with these bad exes, status addicts and other Facebook fiends in a stealthy way? Lemondrop has a few Facebook tips and tricks to share on the subject.
*
And since I'm talking about social media, how about another? Twitter has gotten so popular that it's now fodder Valentine's Day candy ("Tweet Me" is now available on sweethearts)
Just how popular is Twitter? Here's what would happen if you printed it out.

Speaking of Valentine's Day (which I'd rather not, in general), here's a look at how it's celebrated in other countries. (I particularly like Denmark's!)
