Is this story about Star Trek real?

There's a scene in the classic Star Trek episode "The Naked Time", which is mostly known for shirtless Sulu, where he stands in front of Uhura and says "I'll protect you fair maiden!" And she says, "Sorry, neither." I noticed this tumblr post pop up on Facebook and Twitter in the last few days suggesting that Nichelle Nichols adlibbed that line. Is that true? [more inside]

App for notifications about upcoming media?

I like movies, tv, books and music. Is there an iPhone App that lists upcoming items in these (and/or other) categories, allows me to select favorites and then will send me a notification a week or two before said media becomes available? Yeah, I can go through various websites for movies or tv and then add'em to a watch list, but ideally, I'd like it all in one website or app. [more inside]

Primer on how to recognize bullshit and misinformation?

With the topic being in the news, I recalled a fairly lengthy and detailed primer that made the rounds a few years ago on the subject of identifying misinformation, propaganda and bullshit. It may also have had tips on proper research and how to find good sources of information, and was primarily focused on the media. I can remember it's title, though, and I can't find it! Does anyone have it bookmarked or know it?

"He's my friend. We play racquetball together."

Older article with theme of "reporting on USA as if a foreign country"?

I seem to recall an article some years ago (Possibly about a previous US election?) from a US based news organization where they wrote in the tone and style that's normally used for foreign countries. Does that ring a bell with anyone? I think it was linked on Metafilter but haven't been able to find it.

Seeking easy Danish language media

I'm going to spend a month or two in Denmark next spring, and although it's likely that everyone I meet there will speak better English than I do, I started the Duolingo Danish course and to my surprise I'm really enjoying it. Can you recommend Danish-language media (movies, tv or radio shows, bloggers or vloggers...) that I can access online, maybe have Danish subtitles, and that I might have a chance of understanding even though I haven't even learned the past tense yet? (Don't worry, I'll get to that soon.)

Magazine covers that accidentally reference NSFW memes?

My aunt went into a nursing home. As I was sorting through her stuff, I found a copy of the Time magazine whose cover illustration inescapably recalls the highly NSFW goatse meme. I don't know if it was a coincidence or an inside joke, but it got me thinking... Are there other examples of magazine covers that inadvertently reference NSFW memes?

Should I give my video to the news media?

I took a video at an anti-Trump protest. Just chanting and marching, nothing too dramatic. NBC assignment editor contacted me on Twitter and wants to use on "all platforms/partners (with credit)". Any downside? It feels weird to give this away for free, but OTOH I'm sure she's not going to pay me for it. I don't care if my Twitter handle is associated with it.

Competence Porn

I love Leverage and I want more competence porn, especially ones centering women of all sorts and men of color. Happy endings only! Bonus if the people involved don't get into major ethical violations at the beginning and ending of each season and then pretend like it doesn't matter, à la Bones and NCIS. Double bonus if it includes the open ended character development Leverage gives me.

Thanks (for the newspapers), Obama

On November 5th 2008 and November 7th 2012 here in London England, I tried to collect as many British newspapers as I could that featured Barack Hussein Obama II's historic election to the presidency of the United States.

Any good, scientifically-accurate media on retrograde amnesia?

Open to fiction and nonfiction; books, documentaries, podcast episodes, news articles, etc. Nothing that puts me to sleep, please. Would prefer newer works informed by the latest science and works that are more personal, emotional, and detailed, rather than removed, dry, and general. Also, while I realize anterograde amnesia is much more common, I'm really only interested in retrograde amnesia. What caused the RA does not matter.

Earliest instance of Atlantis-as-spaceship depiction in media?

I quit my old life in search of a new one. Now one is emerging...

Last year my wife and I jacked in our jobs, sold our apartment and travelled the country for a while. We were expecting to refine our ideas as to what we would do next, but instead - we found out we were having a baby. Cut to now and we realised we had to cut our trip short, came back to my folks place 'temporarily' and the baby has just been born. We're all consumed by the baby and ecstatic that he is here, but we're now worried about what we do next. An opportunity has presented itself that could be really interesting for us, but doesn't pay and is a leap into the unknown. We don't know what to do. More inside... [more inside]
