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

Or, eat my shorts, Will Hart. Hah! You see what I did there?

No, but seriously, it's wordplay today. I came up with this while taking a hot bath:

What common three-letter acronym can be reversed to become a (not necessarily common) acronym that could mean it's opposite?

A two-letter example: BC, or "Before Christ". Reverse that to become CB, or "Christ's Born". So does anybody have an answer? Anyone? No? Okay, DOA, or "Dead on arrival" can be reversed to AOD, or "Alive on Departure". There are probably more. Like OK and KO. "Are you OK?" "No! I'm about to be KO'ed!"

On a side, and I'm not referring to anybody in particular, Bridget, but when you start buying your hair product from the pet store, you gotta expect to get at least a little flak from that.

It didn't come from a pet store, it came from a regular store like Target and Walmart. It can be used on my hair. It smells good and it makes my hair soft, darn it! I don't pick on you in a public blog. Now be nice!

WYSIWYG -> GYWISYW - Get Your Work Incomprehensibly Shown Yet Written

LCD -> DCL -> Drawings Created with Light
LED -> DEL -> Dark Electrical Line
SOS -> SOS -> Sink our Submarine
SNAFU -> UFANS -> Unacceptable Farce Altered to Normal Situation
