once you reach epic you don't level up anymore
I am a Trekkie. I find no shame in this, I am proud to be a card carrying member of the Federation. Growing up, TNG (The Next Generation for all you who are not awesome I kid, I kid) was a hugely important staple, right up there with air, water, shelter and considerably higher than religion. Life lessons were taught and important injustices explained by my parents in terms of Borg/Cardasian (nazi jerks) and such.
My mother has a star trek communicator tattoo. My first dog was named Data and cat named Lore. Our screen door proudly sported a "Live Long and Prosper" plaque. Get the picture? It wasn't a fucking costume it was a way of life!
Anyway, this isn't meant to be a Star Trek post, it is actually an observation that has been plaguing me a while. I think that Patrick Stewart is immortal.
Exhibit A Mid-Late 1980's Patrick Stewart
Exhibit B Patrick Stewart in 2010 (tux) and 2008ish
If anyone should be immortal it's Patrick Stewart. The dude has captained Star Ships, controlled minds and been every single character Shakespeare has ever imagined.
He's got it lock down.
