    That last bit is famously false. "To boldly go" is infact not a split infinitive, because "go" is actually the infinitive form, not "to go". Traditional grammar rules teach us that using an infinitive without the word "to" is the "bear infinitive", whereas with it is the "full infinitive", but most of these rules were apparently invented in the 1800s because before then there was no objection to "splitting" infinitives in any context. Similar to the rules about not putting prepositions at the end of sentences or the baneful banning of the perfectly legitimate contraction "ain't", the so-called split preposition is an archaic term from a more idealistic, prudish time when people believed that all languages spoken properly must conform to Latin grammar. This all resulted in silly, forced distinctions between nonexistent verb tenses and other rules that classified regional dialects as "improper", and thus by modern standards, which accepts English for the evolving Germanic language it is, that form of writing is meticulous and absurd. "To boldly go where no man has gone before" is grammatically pristine. Don't mislead people as you have been mislead!

    I think I saw this at the onlineschools site a week or two ago.

    The trivia's over a year old, but I didn't realize Zachary's trouble! :D

    What's funny to me is that, back in June of 2007, I made the following caption for the pic at bitdotly/GeorgeJackAndZach (which you could see at boards.9thwonders.com/index.php?act=findpost&pid=344072 - after signing up for free, and entering 'shanti' - without the single quotation marks - as the password to enter the area):

    George: Seriously!?! You're kidding, right? That is sooo not Spock's "Live Long and Prosper" greeting!
    Jack (thinking to himself): Oh, man - I'm sitting here with Sulu and world's worst fanboy who truly wants to be thought of as a Trekkie... Nice.

    Well, I thought it was funny, at least!

    Your last point is incorrect. A split infinitive like this, while usually frowned upon, is not incorrect grammar.

    Nice work though. The one about Zachary Quinto's glue is priceless.
