written by hand. At the time, the best Latin library in Europe had only 600
parchment books.

Captain Kirk never said, "Beam me up, Scotty" on any 'Star Trek" episode,
nor in films.

3. the Brown Derby
4. 'The Nutty Professor'
5. 'Gunsmoke'
6. - 180
7. Nixon, Kennedy and Johnson

"Beam me up, Scotty" is a catchphrase that made its way into popular culture
from the science fiction television series Star Trek. It comes from the
command Captain Kirk gives his chief engineer, Montgomery "Scotty" Scott,
when he needs to be transported back to the Starship Enterprise.

Though it has become irrevocably associated with the series and films, the
exact phrase was never actually spoken in any Star Trek television episode
or film.

Despite this, the quote has become a phrase of its own over time. It can be
used to describe one's desire to be elsewhere, technology such as
teleportation, slang for certain drugs, or as a phrase to show appreciation
and association with the television show.

“There are people in the world so hungry, that God cannot appear to them except in the form of bread.”
― Mahatma Gandhi
