Why Spock May, Or May Not, Be The Perfect Employee

Today a coworker told me that we would be more productive at our jobs if he could just import his thoughts into my brain.

"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.

Too late to backpedal from your trekkie brethren now.

The cool Star Wars kids will never except you after that slip.
