We Just Put Weapons On Our Ships Because We Like The Way They Look

10 things to hate about Star Trek from Pretty damn funny. Kid Various can truly grok number 9.

9. The Federation.
This organization creeps me out. A planet-wide government that runs everything, and that has abolished money. A veritable planetary DMV. Oh sure, it looks like a cool place when you're rocketing around in a Federation Starship, but I wonder how the guy driving a Federation dump truck feels about it?

And everyone has to wear those spandex uniforms. Here's an important fact: Most people, you don't want to see them in spandex. You'd pay good money to not have to see them. If money hadn't been abolished, that is. So you're screwed.
The Kid has always been weirded out by the quasi-marxist Feds because their so unrealistic. The reality is that our future is not really Fed, but Borg!

Sweeeet. The future is coming. Resistance is futile!
