Spaceball has been showing up on the Davedar quite frequently as of late.

I want a Student Centre named after the Shat.

Chris said...

Dave, I think it's called the Willam Shatner University Center.

daveberta said...

oops. my bad. I guess that knocks down the credibility of the "10 random facts."

Chris said...

No, Dave. But calling the University of Alberta Students' Union Building the Paul Gross University Center would knock down the credibilty of the institution on a whole.

daveberta said...

yes, that would be a great diservice to the good people working in that building too. Though it would be more than cool if my business card said Paul Gross University Centre. that's fun.

does the shatner building have artificial turf on the roof?

daveberta said...

I don't know. But I heard the top 2 floors are built like a bunker to keep the cops out if they get raided (the building was built in the 1960's).
