"Like the Vulcan Mind Meld," I asked. I then, since I guess I am a bigger nerd than said co-worker, has to define what that was, which I will also do for you, my readers.
According to the ultimate source on, well, everything (Wikipedia) the Vulcan Mind Meld "is a technique for sharing thoughts, experiences, memories, and knowledge with another individual."
And while I had to agree that it would save time if I could read his thoughts, I had to explain that the concept as a whole would fail because I don't want to know what my coworkers are thinking. And I don't want them to know what I am thinking.
Wait, what was that? That is what blogging is? Letting people know what I am thinking?
Oh, well then bring on the mind meld. I want to swim with some whales!

P.S. - The Mind Meld is about the only thing I know about in regards to Star Trek. I am much more of a Star Wars fan. Darth Vader is my homie.
