“The needs of the many outweigh the needs of the few.”
This above-title, to me, is to me one of the most iconic line in the all of Star Trek’s history! Aside from the #LLAP “Live long and Prosper” of course! You don’t have to be a Trekkie to understand its meaning. It holds even more emotional weight now, especially if you love the show and know where it’s quoted from…
This was from Star Trek II: The Wrath of Khan, 1982 – To save the Enterprise, the crew and his friend Star Trek’s Capt. James T. Kirk—a.k.a. William Shatner…Mr. Spock must sacrifice his life to repair the main reactor chamber.
“Do not grieve, Admiral. It is logical. The needs of the many outweigh …” to which Kirk finishes, “the needs of the few,” and Spock nods. “Or the one …” Spock states that he himself never took the Kobayashi Maru simulation “until now,” and asked Kirk, “What do you think of my solution?”
Kirk, stricken with grief, can’t reply. “I have been and always shall be your friend. Live long and prosper.” He holds out his hand, in the traditional Vulcan salute, and Kirk presses his hand up to the glass as well, watching as Spock slumps to the floor, and dies. – http://www.imdb.com/title/tt0084726/
Leonard Nimoy died at 83, Friday, February 27, 2015 . “Nimoy revealed last month that he was suffering from chronic obstructive pulmonary disease.”
While he will forever be revered and immortalized yet, best known for his work on “Star Trek” and
“Live long and prosper.” – First spoken on Star Trek, season 2, episode 1 (“Amok Time,” 1968). Leonard Nimoy was very active in social media and would end his emails and posts with #LLAP.
The Vulcan And Bipolar Disorder – Fascinating
While you can let your inner-nerd or repressed trekkie morn for the loss of Mr. Spock. I grieve for Mr. Leonard Nimoy. Yet his body of work and his public emotional compassion for “the fans” you know he surely was not a Vulcan …

Death of a Social Media Friend: Is There a Different Grieving Process?
CBS’s Black Box -Love it or HATE IT, it’s been canceled! I mean hate it with a passion that would make water boil, for it’s blatant stereotypical “bipolar disorder” or the fact that it just had a predictable storyline with periodical drama-less drama. Not just the over the top “sex-crazed bipolar ~ drug seeking neurologist” –
That paints a great picture of what ALL BIPOLAR people are like…er,ah excuse me, I mean to say what all people “WHO LIVE WITH BIPOLAR DISORDER” are like… PEOPLE FIRST terms! If we are not shooting and on a killing spree and sexing every one up – Thank you mass-media and the very small percentage of people with (normally undiagnosed or in denial) mental illness that do fit this blatant media stereotype. You mess it up for the rest of us. STOP STIGMA.
In a recent BP HOPE article titled “Are we ready for our close-up,” looked at t.v. shows like Homeland and Black Box:
““Media” in these terms typically includes news outlets. Yet fictional TV and movie characters who are presented as dangerous because of a mental illness, or as figures of ridicule (as on some children’s programs), obviously reinforce harmful stereotypes and reduce empathy. “
If you don’t watch t.v. the ABC show titled “Black Box,” is about an awesomely smart female neuroscientist with bipolar…the hypersexuality stereotype was the first card they tossed at viewers in the first or second episode…along with drug addiction, mania, self- medicating, rejecting-then accepting -then re-jecticting help… I think it was too much. It was very done in a tasteless way. I never watched more than 3 full shows and just panned the reviews from others willing to still sit through it…but looks like not many were willing.
On August 7, 2014, ABC announced series Black Box will not be returning for a second season Entertainment Weekly reports. Here is how the E-Weekly reported it:
