I cannot understand why something like this is not illegal. I could have sworn that it was illegal to deface or destroy currency in the United States, and thus I assumed most countries would have similar laws.


Land of the free????


Not really, we have laws so you can be incarcerated at the government's whim at any time.


I probably break 3 laws a day that I am not aware off.


I think that you are right, considering some of our laws have never been brought up to date. I know I must have broken the blasphemy law just by watching Monty Python material.




No one been prosecuted under the law since 1935. As late as 1980, the law was used to charge the Canadian distributor of Monty Python’s film Life of Brian; the charges were later dropped.

Star Trek fans should make and print their own "Star Trek" currency - every crew member from the series.


This could easily be done with a Bitcoin paper wallet.
Could be a huge hit... "Number one, make it so!"

Sir Wilfred Laurier is a well regarded politician. He was a consensus builder at a difficult time and he earned respect from all sides.

Not that you really care.

These look slightly collectible, I am willing to pay one US dollar for any of these "Spocked" bills, that's right, one whole US greenback for a defaced bill. Send me PMs!

Keep on Spockin' !

I have a feeling William Shatner started this whole thing... I wouldn't put it past that crazy Canuck to do something like this just for #s and giggles.



Yeah, specially since Spock bucks aren't new.... he probably started it years ago and now after Nimoy died spocking has become a national trend.

Off to spock a fiver right now
