Notice to all users of the Holodeck:

There are safety protocols in place that cannot be deactivated without the approval of two commanding officers or the captain to protect users of the Holodeck from potential harm. However, every time the Holodeck is ever used in a nontrivial manner, no matter what the safety protocols say, the Holodeck turns into a deathtrap.

Unless you believe yourself to be adept at constructing a forcefield from your communicator and 19th century Earth tools, or you're at the very least not wearing a red shirt, you are strongly advised not to attempt to use the Holodeck until a designer comes up with a safety protocol that doesn't kill you whenever somebody looks at it funny. Even when you're not on the holodeck. Or in the same quadrant. Or time period.

In fact, if you are wearing a red shirt, Starfleet may not be the job for you

Number 1: Whenever I search for my birth name on Google, several entries always come up having to do with books written by two guys, named Marty Asher and Vikram Seth. Of course, they always say that the authors were: "Vikram Seth, Marty Asher" and since there's no way to specify that I don't want pages containing commas between the words, I will forever be haunted by Vikram Seth and Marty Asher. What the hell kind of last name is Seth anyway? A Hindi one, apparently.

Number 2: In my UI design class, on the first day of labs, the TA came to check my lab, and asked my name, and I said, "Marty... " because I wasn't sure if the list she had said "Seth" or "Ed" on it. Turns out it was Seth. Now she thinks my name is Marty Seth, and she always calls me Marty, even though it's printed lastname-comma-firstname just like all of the other names on the same sheet of paper. Why would anybody ever think Seth is a last name? Because she's Hindi. Every TA in the CS department is Hindi. What can you expect? I didn't realize until just this very second that the reason she thought my last name was Seth was because it's a known last name in India. Wow.
