how our brains work

bb and K are standing in the kitchen moments after K has watched the JJ Abrams Star Trek movie which he is trying to explain...

K: ...So, there was this wrinkle in time so they could make it so Spock's mother died, which was interesting because now they can write the whole back-story differently and can have entirely new episodes.

bb: I'm thinking, because these pants are so loose on me that they look too casual to wear to the office...that's not a problem for Spock, though - he can't feel any emotion, right?

K: No, he CAN feel emotions - he's half human, remember?

bb: So, the pants, too casual, right?

K: We can't afford Donna Karan right now - just so you know.

bb: What, Donna Karan? These were from Old Navy! Fifteen dollars!

K: Too casual.

How I love your conversations.

Spock doesn't feel emotions because he is half human. Vulcans feel emotion, they just don't allow emotion to enter the decision making process. They don't allow emotion to interfere with logical, emotionless, thought.

Clearly they feel emotion, as anyone who has witnessed the Pon Farr can attest to.

I'm still not coping with the fact that Winona Ryder is Spock's mother. Not right, just not right.

DH would have no idea who Donna Karan is. But he's know about Spock.
