Tax collectors creating a training video in which they potray people from a utopian society which, as a part to become such a utopia, got rid of all monetary currency?

Well the biggest mistake was using TNG uniforms in a TOS bridge. Amirite? :D

I wish that was the big mistake.Obama referring to the Jedi mind meld was a good one. Watching the congressional witch hunt for steroid using athletes, when our economy is circling the drain is fun.The Ohio states prosecutor who has charged the Pennsylvania ground hog for a false spring prediction wants him extradited to his state to face the death penalty.This tells me too many privileged short bus takers, whose daddy's money bought Ivy league degrees for, collect large salaries on the backs of taxpayers, to inflict their stupidity on the general public.I have lost all faith in government, both parties in the US are complete jokes.

Wish the video was online somewhere, but years ago I had to sit through an old workplace training video on sexual harassment. It was set on the Voyager bridge set with a bunch of random people wearing what looked like cheap TOS halloween costumes and featured what really, REALLY sounded like a bad 70's porno sound track and the sort of stilted queue card acting you see in every workplace training video ("Captain.... I be... uh believe that is sexual... harassment a violation of spacefl-starfleet regulation.") Supposedly there was also a workplace safety video that used Voyager's engineering set, but we didn't use that one, we used one set in a "grocery store" that was clearly set up in a rented dance hall.

It was the most disturbingly hilarious thing I've ever seen, and I've been trying to find it on youtube for ten years now.
