Some persistant minor niggles with me:

People that say "Robin Reliant" instead of Reliant Robin. You wouldn't say Focus Ford, would you?
People who call Mr Spock from Star Trek, "Doctor Spock".
People who say "Trivial Pursuits" rather than Trivial Pursuit.

I'm sure there are a load of others, but those three can really bug me. :snooty:

Vulcans don't have to be going through pon farr to have sex, they just have to have sex (or a fight) when they're going through pon farr.

It's a minor niggle of mine that people don't know that :P
