    Leonard Nimoy, 'Star Trek's' Spock, dead at 83

    Leonard Nimoy, 'Star Trek's' Spock, dead at 83

    First off, I apologize if this has been posted someone. I looked around but didn't find a thread, so I thought I should put this up. Kind of surprised actually it hadn't been put up as yet. Nimoy is probably the first actor, or famous person really, that has passed away that I really cared anything about. That's not the say that just as big or bigger icons haven't passed away in my lifetime, just none that I took an interest in. Thought I'd share his last tweet he sent out just a few days ago:

    At this moment, #RIPLeonardNimoy is the #2 Trending Topic worldwide, so I guess I'm not the only one that's sad that he's gone.

    I feel bad for my girlfriend though. You see, when I looked at her all dejected and told her he died, she didn't even know who he was. I just turned around and walked away, feeling even more sad, which got her upset because she wanted me to tell her about him. What do I even say to her at this point you know?

    RIP, Leonard Nimoy. I'd like to see the headstone have a one word inscription: "Fascinating."

    He was an icon of my youth, a really cool dude, and will be much missed.


    I am glad he did live long and prospered.

    I was 7 years old when Star Trek came on. We watched it on an RCA Victor black and white TV. I think we watched it every week when it came on, and continued watching it after syndication.

    Real bummer. I didn't realize he was that old.
