"Hey, aren't you that Star Trek guy?"

Poor Wilfrid Laurier do you suppose he went through life being mis-recognized and asked for autographs? (Yeah, I know he died in 1919, but Time Travel. Duh.)

One more thing to love in our neighbors to the north.

Canadians are paying a strange sort of tribute to the late Leonard Nimoy — they're drawing his most famous character, Spock from "Star Trek," over a 19th-century politician on their banknotes....
But the Bank of Canada is unimpressed.
According to the BBC, Canada's central bank, which is responsible for the notes, confirmed that the practice was not illegal but said people should not be doing it anyway .
(Me, I already loved them for the high butterfat content of the little creamers they give you with tea or coffee up there.)
