I'm watching Jurassic Park (which I'm sure most if not all of you have seen. So Dr. Alan Grant just stated that "...and even the word Raptor means, Bird-of-Prey."

Then I instantly thought of those two class of Klingon ship, and realised the names mean the same thing.

What have you just realised today?

I will never look at the Statue of Liberty the same way again. If I blink or take my eyes off of it.....

And...

The dashboard back light on some of the older International and IC NaviStar buses is a really nice blue.

Ah, Doctor Who. Yeah, I saw some episodes with the previous Doctor a few years ago, but it left the screens soon. (in Germany)

The best Lady Liberty to me is still the golden one with diamond flame. (as seen in a German science fiction novel series).

Birds of prey are birds that hunt for food primarily via flight, using their keen senses, especially vision. They are defined as birds that primarily hunt vertebrates, including other birds. Their talons and beaks tend to be relatively large, powerful and adapted for tearing flesh. In most cases, the females are considerably larger than the males. The term "raptor" is derived from the Latin word rapere (meaning to seize or take by force) and may refer informally to all birds of prey, or specifically to the diurnal group.[1] Because of their predatory lifestyle, often at the top of the food chain, they face distinct conservation concerns.
From:http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Bird_of_prey

Off topic but what was the latest Doctor Who episode like?....I switched it off soon as I saw the Statue of liberty behind that building only because those angels can't move if your looking at them and I reckon there would have been a fair number of people looking at the Statue of liberty even if it was the middle of the night as its kind of hard to miss something like that walking through the streets.

Today I realised Liam Neeson (talks about Taken 2 here) is 60 years old and still an incredible actor, continuing to beat the bad guys up in a most dramatic as well as entertaining fashion!
